If you’re new to this blog, I talk a lot about how important moments are during a wedding. I’m a strong believer that things don’t make the wedding, people do, so it’s rare for me to showcase decorations and style elements on this blog. But, I can’t state this enough: we DO still shoot the heck out of all of these items for the couple’s personal gallery! They reflect our couples’ vision for the day!

When nationally known publications recognize their exquisite style, it makes me beam with pride. Brides across the country look to these places for inspiration and there is no more couple who deserves praise than Brittany and Alex. Their taste is impeccable and their attention to detail is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. In the months leading up to a wedding, I get a firsthand look at how hard my couples work to ensure their day goes perfectly. It is so much more than throwing a celebration. They want their guests to be comfortable, stress free and well fed (and hydrated, ha ha). It amazes me at how selfless they are with their loved ones and I’m thrilled when they get nationally recognized!

I’m so excited that Modern Weddings has featured them! You can see that feature here.

Family Documentary: Monroe, NY

A family celebrated their beautiful girl’s Baptism and I was honored to follow them around, capturing unique relationships and connection! There is nothing sweeter than relatives traveling from all over the country for a big event, packed with smiles, hugs and wonderful moments! I started at the family’s house for the getting ready, then joined them for the ceremony and reception. I find that extended coverage like this highlights the beautiful everyday interactions among family members and showcases honest love.

So thankful for wonderful people and inspiring days like this…

Family Documentary: Boston, MA

I am continually thankful for families who allow me to capture how their life really is. The worn furniture, the mismatched clothes, the toys in the crevices of a well-lived home. It’s beautiful. It’s real.

To me, family isn’t dressing in matching outfits, going to a place you’ve never been and posing on a velvet couch in a field. Nope, a family’s legacy takes root in a home. A messy space meant for living, laughing and loving. I love that a photograph is valuable not only in the subjects it showcases, but the little items in the background that also spark memories.

Decades from now I want my clients to remember the way that old carpet felt on their bare feet or how it felt to chase around the pet through the cramped hallways. In-home sessions fuel my photographic soul.

I can’t thank this family enough for welcoming me into their honest life…
