Kirstin & Brad and their wonderful families hosted a classic and an elegant affair at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Though it was stormy with bouts of down-pouring rain, the day was perfect and filled with touching moments from start to finish. Prior to the wedding day, I hadn’t met the couple in person, but Kirstin had told me that Brad was “an absolutely stunning individual (on the inside and out),” and honestly, I couldn’t agree more. Truly one of the sweetest, kindest grooms, with a bride to match. They’re a perfect pair and I couldn’t be happier for this couple as they begin their married life together.

Earlier this year, I traveled to Las Vegas to attend a photography convention, and while there, had the opportunity to work on a styled shoot with the amazing team at Scheme Events.  They are wedding planners serving the Vegas area and beyond, and they are so incredibly talented and creative.  We had previously teamed up on a shoot, so when discussing their vision for another styled shoot, I knew it would be a fun opportunity to work together again, be creative, and meet new vendors.

The shoot was recently featured on Style Me Pretty.  You can check it out here and read more about Scheme Events’ vision for the shoot.  Thanks to all the amazing vendors involved:

Welcome to region of Cappadocia in Central Turkey!  Several years ago, I read about this magical place, famed for it’s otherworldly landscape and hot air ballooning.  I immediately put it on my travel bucket list, and this spring I was lucky enough to visit this unique area of the globe.  We stayed in a cave hotel, rode on the most incredible hot air balloon adventure at sunrise, drove ATVs, tasted local wines, and enjoyed delicious Turkish food- perhaps my favorite cuisine of anything I’ve ever tried.

{This trip was part of a month long adventure across Bulgaria, GreeceIstanbul, and Russia.}

I had such a fun time with Chrissy, James & their pup, Hero!  We started their session in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, then headed to the couple’s hometown of Breezy Point, New York, just outside the city for photos on the beach.  We arrived at the perfect time and the sunset was beautiful.  I seriously didn’t know this little slice of heaven existed so close to NYC- it is absolutely stunning, and a perfect summer night (albeit a bit windy!).  Thanks to the lovely couple for the amazing session- I can’t wait to be back in October for the big day!!
