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

Tiffany & Jared (part 1)

Tiffany and Jared’s wedding at Spoutwood Farm was a dream come true.  Everything was so insanely beautiful and everyone in attendance was incredibly kind.  The happy couple designed absolutely everything and pulled it off with a little help from their talented friends.  It was an honor to document and participate in this day.  We sure did love camping out with everyone afterward too.  I adore you guys and I’m grateful to call you my friends.

many thanks to my talented second shooter, Joanna Fisher

also (because I’m sure a lot of ladies will ask) this otherworldly gown was designed at toile and most of this killer jewelry can be found at Ritual Ritual
