blog_title_decorationJANE & PETER | LAKESIDE TENTED WEDDING ON FILM

I remember my first time meeting Jane & Peter. I felt an instant connection- they have a way of making you feel as though you’ve been friends forever. They’re loving and sweet and fun. So incredibly happy and their happiness is contagious. I was so excited to be a part of their journey from their engagement session, to wedding, to fun dates in between. The second they were engaged, Jane & Peter knew they’d get married up north in Detroit Lakes at the cabin- their favorite place in the world. There wasn’t even a question. Finding a reception venue proved to be a bit more challenging, until Jane had the brilliant idea of hosting a tented reception at a local golf club. You can read and see more on their feature on Style Me Pretty. I could go on and on about this couple, their families, their bridal party, and of course all the gorgeous details, but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Jane & Peter, I seriously freaking adore you! I was so sad when your wedding was over because I knew I’d miss our frequent emails and texts and shared excitement. But, luckily for me, we’ve still kept in touch and I’m amazed by your ability to make myself and everyone around you feel so loved and special! You’re truly beautiful, inside and out, and I’m so lucky to have been a small part of your big day. Hugs to Scout too!

blog_title_decorationANNA & TED | DeSEVERSKY WEDDING

Anna & Ted are married!!  I first met Anna three years ago on the beaches of Mexico at Sarah & Allen’s wedding; back before Ted was even in the picture.  Fast forward a couple years, and Anna contacted me- she had met the love of her life and would be getting married in Old Westbury, NY at the gorgeous DeSeversky Mansion.

Every detail was gorgeous, but especially Anna, in her stunning lace gown.  Thank you, Anna & Ted, for inviting me to be a part of your incredible day!

blog_title_decorationKELSY & BUTCH | POINT LOBOS, CALIFORNIA

Ah, Kelsy & Butch! Where do I even begin with this amazing couple? They’re sweet, funny, fun, beautiful, joyful, genuine, smart, and the most amazing photographers I know! One might think it would be intimidating to photograph photographers (it sometimes is!), but with Kelsy & Butch you immediately feel at ease. We’ve photographed each other many, many times, and at this point, it’s just a fun evening out, with cameras in hand!

Let’s back up a bit. Last fall, I received a call or text or email from Butch (or maybe it was Kelsy?!)- his sister was freshly engaged to a wonderful man, getting married at the most beautiful ranch in California and they wanted to know if I was available. They put me in touch with Stevi and after a few months of phone calls and emails and planning, her big day was finally here! Before I knew it, I was hopping on a plane with my crew to photograph one of the most amazing weddings I’ve ever had the chance to be a part of. I am so incredibly grateful that K&B would trust me enough to recommend me to their family- what an honor. And, for anyone that knows Butch, you know he’s always happy and has a huge smile and just makes you feel happy too… well, Stevi and their family is the same way. They are all just amazing!

Since we were all in Carmel, California, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to do a session (even though we missed their pup, Parker James!). We snuck away from the pre-wedding festivities for a few hours of golden sunlight at Point Lobos, right outside Carmel. What a beautiful place to shoot! Kelsy & Butch, a million ‘THANKS!’ would never be enough! But, it needs to be said- thank you!! I adore you!
