While on the island of Capri for Seth & Nancy’s wedding, we took an afternoon to further explore and capture a few more casual photos around the island!









  • Seth & Nancy - We love you! Nancy and I were literally jumping up and down with excitement AGAIN! Just beautiful, and we cannot thank you enough for everything. We’ll never get tired of telling you that, btw!

  • Kristen - These Capri images are probably some of my favorites yet! I love the colors, textures, composition, and of course the cute couple. :)

While in Capri photographing Seth & Nancy’s gorgeous wedding, we rented a Vespa-esque scooter and cruised from the city of Capri to Anacapri. Seth drove Nancy, myself, and Jesi up the cliffside, one at a time! We just happened upon the perfect little spot outside the town of Anacapri, overlooking the gorgeous landscape of white villas.

  • Ami - LOVE!

  • Seth & Nancy - Eeeee!!!!! So beautiful! LOVE THIS! So much fun!

Where do I begin?! It was so incredible to be a part of Nancy & Seth’s intimate wedding day on the beautiful island of Capri off the coast of Naples, Italy. Destination weddings are always special because it’s typically a small group setting and we spend several days together. I love getting to know the most important people in a couple’s life! Nancy & Seth’s wedding was even more intimate, as it was literally just the couple, myself and my amazing friend Jesi, and the officiant, along for the ride!  Nancy and Seth are avid travelers and they envisioned a beautiful destination and exchanging vows in a private setting. When discussing potential locations, the Almafi Coast was high on the list and they eventually settled on the island of Capri, finding the perfect place to say “I do.”

I knew from the very first email that I adored this couple and after meeting in person over the perfect bottle of wine, my adoration turned to love and their wedding day couldn’t come fast enough!

Fast forward several months, and before we knew it, the big day was here.  Some elements were the same as a traditional wedding day- the bride and groom prepared in separate hotel rooms, they had a joyful, excited first look, but then we spent hours and hours exploring the island and finding cute little nooks to photograph.  We stopped for gelato, wandered the city, and the bride and groom were even surprised by rounds of applause and surprise champagne toasts in the streets.  Of course, there’s no shortage of locations on Capri!!  We ended the day with a sunset ceremony on the balcony of their hotel room overlooking the sea. I literally had tears streaming down my face and am so honored to have been their witness and sign their marriage license- a first for me as a wedding photographer!  During the ceremony, the weather started to make a turn for the worse.  It seemed as though it would downpour rain at any minute and literally 5 minutes after the ceremony ended, the island was hit with a crazy tropical downpour that lasted the entire night.  After the ceremony Nancy & Seth enjoyed a private dinner while Jesi & I drank wine, ate pizza and reminisced about what an amazing day it had been.

Seth & Nancy, I couldn’t be happier for you! I can’t wait to see what adventures life brings your way and I’m so excited for you to look back on this crazy wedding/elopement 50 years from now and think back to what an amazing time it was. The whole experience was a dream for me too and I can’t thank you guys enough for your trust in me and for allowing me to be your travel companion.








































Meet adorable Anne-Marie!! Anne-Marie is an amazing photographer from Ottawa, and we met at a photography workshop in Mexico! Over the years, we’ve kept in touch via social media and recently discovered that we both happened to have destination weddings in Italy at the same time. We made plans to meet up on the beautiful island of Capri, and though our travels only overlapped by about 24 hours, we managed to squeeze in a quick photo session. I even snuck her hubby in a few photos, possibly against his will! (Thanks Harold!) Anne-Marie is an incredibly fun-loving, outgoing, kind person and she gives awesome hugs! She’s the kind of person that immediately puts you at ease and makes you feel you’ve been friends forever. It was so exciting to see her on a new continent and to meet Harold!
