Caroline & Matt: Glen Echo Park Wedding

I have so much to say about this wedding day I almost don’t know where to begin! (I said…almost!) Caroline and Matt have an incredible history and a unique aesthetic. When a photographer is told the wedding will be at an amusement park, you can bet the heart flutters! Given their strong connection to family, I knew there would be some amazing moments. The kind of day when you have to hold your breath, get close and just click-click-click as it all unfolds. Luckily, because I knew a lot of the people at the wedding, it was easy for everyone to just ignore me while I captured their love in a documentary style. It was heaven. I can’t thank them enough.

A few favorites from their wedding day at Glen Echo Park in Maryland

At a busy park in the middle of the day, we found this great private area to do their First Look…

Some tender moments just before the ceremony was about to begin…

Out of all of the moments of the day (and there were so many laughs and tears and everything in between) I found this next photo really touching. Matt reached out his hand to tenderly help his girl up the altar…

A coin toss to see who gets to say their vows first, naturally!

I’ve noticed a new trend, where the bride and groom take the microphone and thank their guests. I think it’s a great touch, plus a nice way to get everyone together so I can photograph the crowd! (Yes, it’s obviously all about me!)

I love everything about this photo: the insane happiness, Caroline’s adorable bare feet…

Night shots for the win! These make me so VERY happy! I know couples can be tired and done with photos after the last dance, but night shots are just the BEST!!

Love Story: MiKayla & Brandon

MiKayla’s beauty was apparent from the first words I read from her on my computer screen. Seriously! Her enthusiasm and warmth was apparent even through e-mail. Then, I met her in person and I was blown away. Her aesthetic is timeless and, well, just gorgeous. MiKayla and Brandon wandered around downtown Syracuse on a gorgeous day. They are such a beautiful mix of romantic and fun and downright fierce. They encapsulate my “love out loud” motto and I could photograph them all day.

Together, they are spectacular! A few faves…

MiKayla’s skin is absolutely flawless, I don’t even think calling her a makeup artist gives her justice, given her immense talent! Go check out her Youtube channel that is all things beauty, here.

Brandon is also a stunner, loved how he wore a watch MiKayla gave him!

These two! Whether fierce or cuddly, they just look damn fine!

Sometimes the ring needs it’s own photo shoot, look at this amazing symbol!

MiKayla and Brandon, your wedding day can’t come fast enough! I’m not going to wait a year to see you again so expect to do some more photos during another season, I can’t get enough!

Love Story: Gina & Andrew

My only goal during any photo shoot is to showcase the people in front of my lens in an authentic manner. Whether they’re shy or lively, people who make out spontaneously in front of me or those who just cast a glance and it says everything. Gina and Andrew? From the first moment I met them, they were genuine. They laugh easily and tease each other unabashedly. Our time together couldn’t have been more perfect, in gorgeous light with smiles the entire time. Their love is so beautiful, a  relaxed and playful connection that’s so easy to photograph.

A few favorites from these two loves…

Lecia & Nick: Trentadue Winery Wedding

It was one of those perfect California days: plenty of sunshine, great people, food and wine. Lecia laughed all morning with her friends while Nick was lounging around the pool. A relaxed, gorgeous day in wine country with some of the most generous people you could ever be around. There were so many personal elements too, like the groom’s brother playing guitar during the ceremony and the bride’s good friend officiating the service. Those are the types of details that make a wedding so special. Everyone contributed their own unique talent to help tell the couple’s story.

A few favorites from their northern California wedding…

Headshots: Elizabeth

I recently had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth, who’s the boss and chief ass-kicker over at To Eat and To Love.

Seriously? I have so much to say about this woman! Just check her out, will ya? Hearing her talk about her past struggles and what she did to overcome and all of the insane juggling of job/life/eating/sleeping/stress/pressure that we all deal with…well, let’s just say it resonated…big time! I follow her blog religiously and she writes great articles about current trends. What may work for you and what may not. She has zero judgement, extensive knowledge…and if I can just say this without being too cliched: She is just REAL. 

From a headshot and marketing perspective, we wanted to keep the photographs clean and light. Elizabeth’s aesthetic/website is more neutral colors and modern branding, so in keeping with that theme, here are some favorite pics!

We also put together a promotional video so you can hear (in her own words) her passion for helping people manage healthy eating and planning.

Go check out Elizabeth’s website and follow her on Facebook for the latest updates!
