I think the photographer – couple relationship is truly key for wedding images to be a success. Aside from all the creativity and technical nitty gritties, the relationship between the person behind the camera and the people in front of it, is important. Many of my couples I know through references, or at least feel […]

THE DONUT TABLE. Sorry, but it is 1000% necessary to begin this post with those three words, bolded & in all caps. Because yup, you guessed it – the donut table was EPIC. Epic I tell you, just EPIC. Actually I’m getting ahead of myself, their entire day was epic! The first moment they called […]

As I round out my 5th year in wedding photography, I’ve come to realize that every couple I photograph has their own definition of love. Love is truly individualized, and is what we believe it is, yet it also holds a specific common standard. Even though the overall goal of the definition is the constant […]

I’ve got a thing for pretty things, as any girl would, of course! But my definition of pretty has changed a ton over the years, especially as I continue down this path as a wedding photographer. Naturally it has sparkles and shiny objects you can wear on body parts, but there is also that definition […]

If you ever dreamed of a backyard wedding, Lauren & Pat’s special day needs to be added to your list of inspiration. Their beautiful Saturday began with one gorgeous outdoor ceremony and ended with a bang (&& I’m not joking. It had fireworks: so a literal bang!). If it wasn’t obvious, Pat is a pyrotechnics […]

There are thousands of methods I could use to get to know a couple. These two though, I didn’t send them a survey or ask them obvious “get to know you” questions. I knew Ben was a fellow Hoban Knight (and that alone is something sacred). But it was during their engagement session that my […]
