I couldn’t resist sharing a few of my favorites from Kristi & Kevin’s beautiful wedding in Minneapolis. Kristi wanted a fall wedding, but not traditional fall colors. It was absolutely lovely! Their wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty, as well as their winter tree farm engagement session!



















Kristi & Kevin had an amazing team of vendors:
Dress: Angel Sanchez from l’atelier Couture
Florals: Sadie’s Couture Floral & Event Styling
Stationery: A Milestone Paper Co.
Reception Venue: Calhoun Beach Club

In addition to organizing a photoshoot in Las Vegas, I also had the chance to participate in another organized by my amazing friend, Amy, of Amy Rae Photography. Amy and the crew did an incredible job pulling everything together and I was in love with the gorgeous details and colors. All images were captured on my Contax 645, Fuji 400H and 160S film.

Earlier this winter, I had the oppurtunity to second shoot this wedding for my amazing friend, Melissa, who is a wedding photographer based in Atlanta, Georgia. Melissa is so talented and shoots amazing destination weddings all over the world! Be sure to check out her work on her lovely new website!

I flew directly from Mexico (photos coming soon!) to Jacksonville, where Mel picked me up before heading to Amelia Island.  I’ve traveled to the south quite a few times, but Melissa introduced me to grits and fried green tomatoes!  Of course, the highlight of the weekend was Dana & Danny’s beautiful wedding!  Here are a few of my favs.  I was in love with the candlelit details, which included baby’s breath and cranberries!



















  • amy - so cute!!! in love with a good southern wedding on the water! the island is amazing!
