Mountain Equestrian Wedding | Upscale Ranch Wedding | Luxury Destination Mountain Bridals

Caroline and Dan are the epitome of a classic couple. These two met at Station Nine in Durham at an ugly sweater party while both attending Duke. Dan, then a second year business school student, hosted the party when he met the love of his life. As an homage to their beginnings, the two now host an ugly sweater party every year! Dan proposed on a private island overlooking the barrier reef in Australia. To this day it is still one of their favorite trips regardless of the proposal! Although I think their honeymoon in Sri Lanka and the Maldives will be hard to beat!

Sun Valley Idaho Wedding | Destination Wedding Photographer | Caroline and Dan

I met this darling couple through Ellese and Dave. We had been talking about a couples’ trip for awhile. Since we’re both avid hiking couples and have Instagram husbands, Ellese and I thought it would be super fun to go to Banff and explore the Rockies. Little did she know, it was actually for her own proposal! Weeks before the trip, Ashley, Dave and I would text about our secret plans. It already felt like Ashley and I were partners in crime so it was easy for us to play our part in sneakily surprising Ellese.

Banff Anniversary Session | Destination Wedding Photographer | Ashley and Tyler

This couple definitely affirms that I have finally reached my ideal client. Stef and Mark are basically the exact people I would choose to photograph all day long. They’re goofy, super in love and have two cats. What more could you ask for!? When planning their engagement session, we considered a bunch of locations but eventually settled on Bear’s Den.

I have had so many people ask me about this proposal! It was shared on Instagram a few times and commenters have thought it was fake which gave me and the bride to be a huge laugh. This adorable love story has finally been shared on Wedding Chicks so I am able to share it on my personal blog!

Mountain Top Proposal | Banff Destination Engagement | Ellese and Dave

Today marks 6 years of Ben Tuben. Some may say it’s a little greedy to have 2 anniversaries but with 365 days in a year, I think I am allowed to devote two of them to love…

Mountain Anniversary Session | Banff Wedding Photos | Personal Post

It’s about that time again, another trip.. another blog post. I started these posts as a type of digital journal but I tend to have friends always ask me for recommendations when they travel! Instead of typing the same email again and again and remembering the whole in the wall we ate at a year ago in a foreign country, I just send them these blog posts! So without further ado, here is Banff!

Banff Vacation | Canmore, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and Hiking Canada | Personal Post

This was by far the best portrait session of my life. Not only was the weather and lighting to die for but Dylan and McKenzie were sheer perfection. I loved everything about this couple and this style. The dress was perfect for flowing movement pictures and truth be told, my own husband is growing a man bun so you can’t imagine how much I loved Dylan’s style.

My first day on the west coast, I couldn’t help but feel like everyone out here is gorgeous with great hair, amazing skin and even better clothing. It is crazy that one country can have so much variety! Even this darling couple seemed to be so sweet and extremely relaxed.
