a stroll down the street

During a visit with one of my closest ladies, we took a walk with her adorable little dude.  I was excited to photograph him and he was excited to visit the chickens down the street.  In the end we were both really happy  :)

aileen & joe

I was lucky enough to document Aileen & Joe’s proposal and I’ve been anticipating their wedding day ever since.  Spending the morning with Aileen was a dream… she’s always so sweet and kind.  It was incredible to see her radiating joy and surrounded by so much love.

The rest of the day was a high energy celebration with plenty of dancing; from the happy couple’s well practiced first dance to a flash mob organized by their families.  Such beautiful expressions and confirmation that love abounds.

many thanks to my talented partner Tifani Truelove

annual holiday portrait

Every year I get to photograph this awesome family at Exley’s Tree Farm.  It doesn’t feel like the holidays for me until this shoot happens.  Running through the rows of trees, surrounded by the scent of pine, on this beautiful sunny day was pure joy.  Thank you for allowing me to document your growing family, it’s one of my favorite times of the year.

Also, it’s worth saying that the owners of this farm are incredibly kind and always welcoming.  go get your tree there and enjoy this magical place.

Jordan & Allen

Tifani True love and I had a marvelous time documenting Jordan and Allen’s wedding.  Both the ceremony and reception were held at the Zoetropolis Theater, so they made an awesome dance video to screen for their guests.  The whole day was wonderfully offbeat and even though it rained, their colorful portraits defied it.

Michael & Bob

Michael Bruce is a ridiculously talented florist and has been a dear friend of mine for a couple of years now.  Bob has always welcomed me warmly to their home and has become a good friend as well.  They’ve been together for 29 years and decided to plan a wedding within a couple of weeks.  To say that I was honored to photograph their day would be an understatement.  It was a gorgeous backyard wedding and everyone was so thrilled to celebrate them.  Grateful to have witnessed this day and to know that a love like theirs exists.

Many thanks to my talented second shooter, Tifani Truelove
