Golden Hour was probably my favorite shoot of the Pantone editorial. I find it very rare that couples go for warm and earthy tones on the East Coast so this was a joy to capture. I love the way that these colors looked on both film and digital. Any florals dripping from the ceiling have my heart.

Pantone Wedding Trends | 2019 Wedding Inspiration | Golden Hour

I have always been in love with editorial work, so when Wedding Wire contacted me to partner with Pantone to capture the wedding trends for 2019, I was overjoyed! I was extremely honored to be chosen to photograph 4 different color schemes for this year’s wedding inspiration. I had an insane amount of creative control and was able to contribute to the vision boards, suggested venues and brought my favorite stylist Sincerely Pete on board to help carry out this vision.

When K scheduled a session I couldn’t have been more excited! This darling is not only one of my boudoir clients but she is also one of my brides! She brought a veil and her wedding shoes to her session to get bridal in studio! I think it was the perfect way to get her excited for wedding day!

When a boudoir session involves whiskey, you know it’s a good day. J wanted some intimate portraits for her hubby as an anniversary present. She admitted to me that she used to be GREAT with gift giving but has gotten lax in the recent years of marriage. This year, I know her boudoir book will be one heck of a surprise!

Is there anything more glamorous than a gal about to get married!? R decided to come in for a bridal boudoir session as a surprise to her fiance! She came into the studio just weeks before her big day! I love when clients plan it this way because they’re usually feeling super confident and beaming with self-love ready for their wedding!

This was the first ever holiday season that I offered mini sessions for my family clients and OH BOY am I glad I did! I am absolutely smitten with these images! Twenty-one families of all sizes and backgrounds came to my studio; we had 11 dogs, 3 babies and 5 couples all join in the fun! I am so so thankful for each and every person featured in the images below! Until next year and happy holidays!

Judee & Justin, what a pair! These two are first time expecting parents and I could not be more thrilled to have documented this part of their journey. This may be the last set of images they have together as a party of 2! They are expecting identical twins in the next few months and will be surprised by the gender on delivery day!

Oh man.. the Biggs family is making me a fan of family photography! I am not even kidding when I say that Olivia looked and smiled right at the camera for nearly two straight hours. What an incredible baby!! When these two college swimmers asked me to document their growing little family, I couldn’t help but say yes!

When your high school bestie has her first baby, you immediately fly home to meet her! I cannot believe that I am posting this entry. Lara and I met in Mr. Hock’s Biology class when I was 13 years old. When I decided to launch my business, her and Louis were the most supportive humans on the planet. It’s so funny to see how my business and her family has grown simultaneously!
