Words fail me sometimes when I think about how to describe Ari and Amy. Radiant, joyful, loving are all words that come to mind but still fall short somehow. I met these two by happenstance, when my husband and I took our kids to a local fair. They were about to open their family-centered chiropractic […]

When I first met Jesse and Amanda during their engagement photos last fall, I knew that their wedding day was going to be really fun – and it was! They are two of the sweetest and most down to earth people ever. Their first look was tearful and emotional, Charlie and I had a hard […]

In the days leading up to their wedding, Amy described it as being a low-key and intimate day. She was right, but it was also one of the more beautiful weddings I’ve gotten to photograph this year. They put a lot of the thought into the simple, minimalistic details that really stood out in their […]

If I had to choose three words to describe Zach and Melissa’s elegant barn wedding at Bostic Lake Ranch they would be: fun, tear-filled, and family. Because Zach and Melissa have a way of making everyone feel like family. From the thoughtful, personalized gifts Melissa gave to her bridesmaids, to the way every member of […]

When Charlie and I took a little weekend getaway to Lake Tahoe last October, I never dreamed I would meet a future bride and groom on the plane! But when Sarah sat down next to me and we started chatting, we didn’t stop until the plane landed! She told me she was waiting for Jeff […]

There’s a lot I could say about Chris and Brooke and their joy-filled wedding a few weeks ago. These two know how to make an impression on people. They are thoughtful, constantly thinking about loving and serving others (even their photographer!), and enjoy every moment. When we shot their engagement photos last fall, they asked […]

Have you ever come away from meeting someone and just felt warm inside afterward? That’s how I felt after hanging out with these two last October. They were a little nervous to have their photos taken but after a few minutes they were so natural together and ended up having a blast. I’m delighted to […]

Kid in a candy store. That’s how I felt when I arrived at Thornewood Castle on Ben and Nieka’s wedding day. The grounds, stunning. The castle, breathtaking. And every last detail that the two of them hand picked, from the victorian style dress to the hand-made caramel favors, gorgeous. But the classy, elegant details of this […]

When Ashley’s mom contacted me about shooting her daughter’s wedding, I was ecstatic. I had just photographed her sister’s wedding last August, and their whole family was such a joy to be around. This was my first wedding of the season and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to start the year. They […]
