Michelle & Darren: Hayloft on the Arch Wedding

I walked into the hotel room where Michelle and her V.I.P.’s were getting ready on the day of the wedding and I knew I was in for a great day. There were children and bridesmaids and relatives alllllllll over the room. Gorgeous chaos with such an abundance to photograph! From toys and shrieking kids, to laughing bridesmaids and hugs all around. It was evident this was a tight knit group of people and they were happy to just ignore me so I could do my thing. I gathered up tons of heartfelt moments and that was before the ceremony even starts! Michelle, Darren and their friends were a blast to spend the day with.

A few faves…

Elissa & Tony: MKJ Farm Wedding

I’ve documented weddings at MKJ Farm many times but each and every time I return, I notice something new and interesting to photograph. I challenge myself to approach the day with fresh eyes and try to never, ever repeat a shot. Elissa and Tony told me they didn’t want a lot of posed photographs, so there was a unique and totally documentary approach to the day! Their wedding was relaxed and the ceremony was totally personalized, thanks to the great work of officiant Tanya Keller. An added bonus was that I knew a lot of people at the wedding since I photographed the groom’s brother’s wedding (an epic event that I STILL think about!) three years ago. These two didn’t stop smiling once, and their joy radiates from the photos.

A few favorites from their heartfelt and sweet day…

Love Story: Alyssa & Colin

It’s no secret that my favorite thing to do is photograph couples. In a relaxed and fun setting, I get an inside look at how two people define love. These may be just pretty pictures to some, but, I’m motivated to tell a story. Their story. Is the couple fun or more reserved? Do they value tradition or want to do things totally different? The single way I measure a successful shoot is if I adequately captured their unique connection. What is the feeling of their love? (In my view, it’s not posing every limb perfectly and having two people smile at the camera) I’m driven by the exclusive interaction between two people in love.

Alyssa and Colin rocked my world. They brought me to a location they love and everything instantly fell into place. They allowed me to document them in a real and beautiful way. With wind in their hair and unwavering smiles, they walked barefoot in the sand…and even into the water! They’re up for anything and it’s one of the thousand reasons I adore them! They’re playful and fun, teasing each other lovingly. At the same time, you can tell the world immediately falls silent when they look at each other.

There were so many favorites, here’s just a few…
