So much to love about today’s engagement session! The new spring grass, the adorable red dress Andrea is sporting, and of course the incredible location. I’m swooning over the rich colors and pretty light, which made this extra fun for me the photograph. Plus Andrea and David will be tieing the knot in just a few short weeks, so it was really nice to get to spend a few hours getting to know them better.

There were so many beautiful photos from this shoot, but here a little glimpse into a few of my favorites.

  • Rachelle - What a beautiful spring shoot! Love the bright red dress! Can’t wait to see the wedding pictures. :)

Lately I’ve been reflecting a lot about what makes a good wedding, from a photography point of view. Maybe it’s a killer venue, beautiful natural light, loads of thoughtful details, or a dream team of vendors. With these elements combined the possibilities are endless, but bringing all those things together aren’t always an option. There are budgets to keep within, location restrictions, and a dozen other real life obstacles.

So what can you do to insure your wedding is a success? I believe the most incredible weddings all have something in common, trust. When it comes to choosing your vendors, be sure your picking companies whose work you not only love, but also people you trust. No matter how organized you are; you cannot do everything yourself, and you’ll need to rely on the talented people you’ve chosen.

Just remember you’ve worked hard to pick these people, so trust your gut, and have faith that they are working hard to make your day perfect!

  • Rachelle - Great advice!!

I have such a soft spot in my heart for newborn session, especially when it’s for parents I already adore! This little cuties mama played a BIG role helping to create the perfect wedding for John and I. So it was such a treat to help return the favor, and capture the first photos of sweet baby Harper.

This session was overloaded with cuteness! I had to stop several times during the shoot to pinch myself because Harper was such a dream to photograph!

  • Rachelle - Beautiful! Love the nursery design and all the sweet gold details. Congrats to the new family!!

Over the last few years I’ve had so much fun getting to know and work alongside Carrie of Pure Lavish Events. I just adore her positive energy and zest for life. So when she asked me to be her wedding photographer, I couldn’t have been more excited and honored. It’s always something special when a fellow wedding industry professional gets married, and I’m just so thrilled I get to be a small part of it!

Carrie had told me so many wonderful things about Justin, and I can honestly say he lived up to the hype. But what struck me more was how completely in love these two are. You can just see how much fun they have together and I’m confident this will translate into their life together as husband and wife.

  • Rachelle - What a goregous bike, ring and couple! I see a very “Happy Ever After” in their future! :)

  • Sakura koontz - LOVE this session and your website. They are both so gorgeous!

At the start of each wedding season I have so many hopes for what the year will bring. At this point, much of my year is booked and it’s only a matter of counting the days to the next wedding. So when Louisa and Josh’s wedding was finally here I couldn’t wait to kick start this year! Thankfully I couldn’t have been more blessed with the perfect wedding, location, and incredibly sweet couple. For me, this is the stuff dreams are made of. I’m so thankful I get to spend my days photographing love, and when it’s for people like Louisa and Josh, I feel especially honored.

Every element of their day was flawless, from the Louisa’s red lips, to the pink bow ties the guys sported – everything came together just beautifully. I could go on and on about what an enjoyable day it was, or how fun my couple’s families was, but let’s get to the good stuff shall we? Take a peak into Louisa and Josh’s day with just a few of my favorite moments.
