blog_title_decorationANNE & DAVID | STOUT’S ISLAND WEDDING

Gosh, where to begin with Anne & David’s incredible wedding weekend on Stout’s Island? For those of you that haven’t visited Stout’s Island, please go immediately!! It’s such a beautiful lodge, reminiscent of a different era. I love the up-northy, lake-woodsy feel. It makes me feel kind of like Baby in Dirty Dancing (minus the overprotective parents and dance – and life- lessons with Patrick Swayze!). It’s such a peaceful place and really just the perfect spot to host a wedding weekend. You have to take a boat to get this remote island, and once you’re there, it’s pure magic.

Anne and David, along with their lovely parents, hosted a fantastic weekend starting Friday night with the rehearsal dinner, all the way through the main event on Saturday, and farewell brunch on Sunday. They couldn’t have picked a better date- the leaves were almost at their peak and the atmosphere was cozy. The weekend, along with our time working together, passed way too quickly, but even in our short time together, I’ve grown to absolutely adore this couple. If they didn’t live in San Francisco, I would insist that we be besties and hang out all the time. They’re world travelers (I mean, they have been around the world, quite literally, and honeymooned in Japan & Hawaii), whip smart, super sophisticated, have great style, and treat their friends and family like gold. Most of all, they’re better together, and their love is evident when you see the gleeful smiles on their faces! I feel so lucky to have been a part of your wedding; thank you Anne & David! Cheers to many years together and countless adventures to come!

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family many times before. Once pre-blog, once before little Leo was born, and oncewhile Teryn was pregnant (though she hadn’t yet announced it!!). I was so excited when I found out Teryn & Ian were expecting and even more excited when they asked me to capture a fall session with their sweet and smily little boy. His big blue eyes and grin simply stole my heart.

blog_title_decorationTRAVELS THROUGH SPAIN

I have newly developed tradition of taking a solo adventure for my birthday! For my 2015 birthday (almost a year ago now, yikes, I’m a little behind on blogging!) I went on a road trip around Portugal and Spain. I started in Lisbon, drove northeast to Salamanca, Spain, to revisit the town where I studied abroad in college. After a few day there, I drove south to Granada to visit The Alhambra on my birthday, and on to Los Pueblos Blancos (The White Towns) near the southern coast of Spain.These are a few of my favorite images from Spain. Portugal coming up soon!
