This wedding truly knocked my socks off, there’s no other way to say it! It was clear that this family was not new to weddings and that every detail had been thought through. As a vendor serving this wedding, that made it an absolute joy for us to be apart of! Since I had already […]

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.

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 […]
