Patrick and Emily :: Married at the Forest Park Visitor’s Center

At the end of the day, my second shooter and I looked at each other and said, “This didn’t even feel like work.” Emily and Patrick were SO lovely to work with and they truly do adore each other. Patrick spent much of the day doting on his new bride, and I’m so very happy for the both of them!

Emily and Jamie :: Westwood Country Club Wedding

Oh where to even begin? I knew right from our first conversation that Emily and Jamie’s wedding would be fantastic, but I had no idea just what a beautiful day I was about to photograph. Her dress, the geometric details designed to perfection in coordination with the amazing Jenny and her team from Before I Do, and gosh that beautiful ceremony with chocolates, ombre roses and Emily’s grandmother’s veil all set perfectly against the setting spring sun… I don’t want to give it all away, but just take a look for yourself.  It’s the stuff dreams are made of.

Featured on Bajan Wed :: Urban Bridal Inspiration

I spend most of my days photographing bright and airy beauty outdoors, and while I love the energy and joy of a bright session, I teamed up with a dream team of vendors to photograph this sweet styled session in the basement of a furniture factory in the city.  Anew Nature generously lent us their space… do yourself a favor and check out their site.  Not only are their pieces unique and beautiful, but their mission and the way they are impacting our city is beyond incredible. We had one window, lots of candles, and endless brick walls, which, when combined, were pure magic on film.
