August

A cool breeze.  Teacups shining on the tables.  Red roses mingling with greenery and tempered by their blush and ivory neighbors in a lush bouquet.  It was simply the perfect August wedding day!   Making it even more perfect were the lovely people who shared this special day.  Our bride Shayla simply glowed.  One of my […]

“I have often been teased about my love for Funfetti cake” Kira said smiling to herself, as she iced the tiny heart shaped cake in our kitchen on the morning of her wedding day.  Later that day, her guests would be treated to a towering traditional wedding cake, but Kira had baked a small gluten […]

“I have for the first time found what I can truly love – I have found you.  You are my sympathy – my better self – my good angel.  I am bound to you with a strong attachment.  I think you good, gifted, lovely; a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it […]

For our incredible couple Valeria and Darren, a beach wedding turned into a “micro wedding” in the mountains after the coronavirus pandemic disrupted their original plans.  In the end, it was everything a wedding day should be…a joyful celebration, surrounded by good friends, and filled with new memories to last a lifetime.  We loved all […]

We were swimming in a sparkling sea of teal and gold at Marissa and Anthony’s gorgeous, intimate, peacock inspired elopement!  I adore events based around a theme (some past highlights include Wizard of Oz, Dr. Who, Alice in Wonderland and Halloween inspired weddings!) but this was our first Peacock inspired event and I was so […]

I’m a little lost for words… Glowingly happy.  Radiantly in love.  Gentle devotion.  Stunningly beautiful… all of these words describe Marlene and Gary’s wedding day, but they also fall a little short in describing how breathtaking, how romantic, how special this mountain elopement was.   Thank goodness for pictures.  As you scroll through, you’ll understand.  You’ll […]

You know how they talk about a person who can “light up a room” – well this was our gorgeous bride Sherry, to a tee!  The mountains were putting on their full November show, with scudding clouds and a brisk breeze, but Sherry arrived like a ray of sunshine…really funny sunshine, is that a thing?…warm, […]

A “monopoly hat”, a tiny tea laid out for fairies to enjoy, candy as far as the eye could see, lush flowers draped over sparkling lanterns…everywhere you turned at Allison and Thom’s wedding day, there was something delightful to catch your eye.  If I could choose a superpower, it would definitely be to time travel.  […]

There is something so special about uncovering and hanging up a bridal gown in the dressing room…it makes it really start to feel like a wedding day!  Everyone ooohs and ahhs over the dress and is able to take a moment to truly appreciate all the thought and love and planning that has gone into […]

There is just something special about high school sweethearts!  I was instantly charmed when I met Andrea and Michael early in the year, and finally after lots of waiting, their October wedding day finally arrived!  This sweet and savvy young couple have been busy in the past few months, and just finalized the purchase of […]

Some days are so special, and so much fun to be a part of…and Shiny and Trevor’s wedding day was definitely one of those days!!!  This gorgeous couple was as sweet and fun as they were beautiful!  And they were joined by a very special guest for their intimate elopement – their golden retriever “Link”.  […]

Our wonderful couple Shannon and Brian celebrated their wedding day surrounded by friends and family and beautiful touches of fall!  Their Champagne and Eggplant decor, was enhanced by two of Shannon’s favorite things – flickering candles and warm, cozy scents.  She created many of the decorative touches including her beautiful centerpieces and the fabric and […]

It’s always fun to go back to the office and look through the photo’s I’ve just shot, and I’ll admit, I might have gasped a couple times when I looked through these – our lovely couple Geyse and Erick are simply drop. dead. gorgeous.  This amazing couple met in South Carolina but both were born […]

We loved every moment of Janet and Jack’s intimate wedding celebration!  Our Bride and Groom were joined by their children for a private wedding ceremony followed by cupcakes, sparkling apple cider and a mountain top adventure (if you are wondering how to scale rocks in high heels – Janet is the person to go to!!!) […]

Are you ready…because GORGEOUS does not even begin to describe our radiant bride Mary (kind, sweet and humble too!).  She was surrounded by the most amazing group of women – deeply caring, and encouraging helpers and family who made the day even more special.  Her groom Kevin looked so handsome, and many guests arrived dressed […]

I was so excited for our July 2016 couple Liz and Allen, when they contacted me to let me know they were expecting (!) and to ask if I would shoot their maternity photos.  I already knew that I adored this sweet couple, and absolutely loved shooting their wedding photos last year – you can […]
