Nuffy and Chris had a fabulous destination wedding at the very northern point of Michigan. In fact, we were so far north that the sunset was at 9:30PM- a photographer’s dream. They held a rehearsal party with a Texas theme (an ode to the bride’s hometown) at Chris’ family lodge. The nest day, both bride […]

  2019, Wow. What a freakin’ ride. When I look back at this year, I kind of have to laugh. Starting this year, my word of the year was “Rest”. I did anything but rest. I came in from 2018 pretty worn down from my biggest year yet so, I raised my prices and vowed […]

Fanny and Fazim are a photographers DREAM. They changed from semi-formal to full on formal as their second look during their engagement session. A couple after my own heart! They have such style but are also such good sports about pictures! We joked around and had a FABULOUS early morning session in New York City for their session! I have always wanted to shoot at the Top of the Rock and DUMBO so I was over the moon when these two agreed to both!

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!

What. A. Couple. I feel like I have to share a funny anecdote before telling you about this wedding. About 2 weeks before, Meghan and Ryan were both guests at a mutual friend’s wedding that my husband and I also attended. About 10 minutes into the reception, these two were TEARING IT UP on the dance floor having the best time any guest could possibly have. I tried to sneak a quick iPhone picture of their cuteness when my husband caught me. He said, “Why are you creeping on that couple?” To which I responded, “I’m photographing their wedding in a few weeks. LOOK HOW CUTE!” Ben then rolled his eyes and said, I think you’ll take much better ones of them dancing on THEIR wedding then, right?”

Jordyn and Dan know how to plan a wedding. Their focus on guest experience was unparalleled to any other wedding I have been to. All events were inside on this blustery winter New York day and the two did a first look to make sure they had ample time to mingle with guests during cocktail hour! The second guests arrived before the ceremony, they checked their coats and were served warm or cold beverages. The buffet style dinner and dancing was all done in that very room!

I have known Leslie for ten years. We both swam our entire lives and she was actually my recruit at Duke! In fact, she was my very first recruit when I was 17 years old. As the younger sister in my household, I was so excited to finally be able to host someone and be the “big sis”. I even have a Facebook album that is titled “Leslie is coming to Duke”. Although we became fast friends, she ended up attending Princeton and thank goodness she did because this is where she met Mason.
