Nathan and Precious got married on November 2, 2019. And that day was not picked randomly. They wanted to share their wedding date, with the Day of the Dead (dia de los muertos). Nathan lost his sister, brother, and father, and this was one way to remember them on their special day. Precious left me […]

Sam and Sarah were together for ten years before they got married. Ten years, that led to one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever photographed. Any of Sarah’s friends could tell you something she does not lack is style, and all the details on the wedding day were spot on. The day started at […]

One of my favorite couples EVER! Seb and Sheena met in Australia over nine years ago, and have been inseparable pretty much ever since. They actually flew me to Australia for their engagement session, and I got to spend an entire week with them, which is one of the reasons shooting their wedding felt like […]

As it turns out, wedding nightmares are really a thing. From the moment I got engaged and started planning my wedding, I had nightmares about things like the dress not fitting at all and having to wear toilet paper as my wedding gown, a blizzard in May keeping all my guests from showing up, and […]

The Wedding Venue I arrived at the Charleston Event Center and immediately checked the map to make sure I was at the right location. What a hidden gem! Austin greeted me at the door with a big hug, wearing shorts and a t-shirt. He seemed relax, but very excited! The forecast called for rain pretty […]

They’re both foodies, and after their honeymoon, Molly will join John in Chicago, where I’m guessing they will never run out of good places to eat! They are picky, and they picked each other… Their wedding day was the most perfect Summer day, and they spent it with all their friends and family. Molly’s mom, […]
