    Kristen and Jesse had a humble yet beautiful ceremony at their parents' backyard. There was good food, good times and good company. Thank you to you two for having me share your special day. You can see their engagement photos here!

  • Jennah + Shane Part 2

    I remember last Spring hanging out with Jennah over coffee or something and she had told me that she had started dating Shane. I was ecstatic for her and knew that when I got back from my study abroad program that fall, she would more than likely be engaged. What do you know? I was right ;) These two have been through thick and thin and this marriage was meant to be.

    Jennah and Shane were married at a family friend's gorgeous estate. It was the most perfect venue for the two of them. I loved being able to share and document my friends' long-anticipated day. So thankful for these two and their presence in my life. 

    After getting married, they drove across the country to move into their new home in upstate New York. Right after that they left for their European honeymoon adventure, of which I was extremely envious of. Then they got back to the states and officially "moved-in" and where Jennah has started pursuing her law degree at Syracuse. Are these two crazy? Yes. Are they ambitious? Extremely.

    I'm headed to New York for the next few days and will get to visit them and see their new home and adorable puppy. It's going to be a great last summer adventure!

  • Coleen + Tim

    This was a very dear wedding for me to present at and to be bestowed the honor of photographing. Coleen's sister Shalom is one of my very best friends and I have known this family ever since the 7th grade. I've seen the things this family has endured and it was incredibly touching to Coleen's dreams finally come true by marrying a boy she meant 15 years earlier in high school. Their love story was meant to be, I'm sure of it. Coleen and Tim had a small ceremony in their parents' backyard (which was so perfect) and held their reception at the beautiful Waterstreet Cafe.

    The last few portraits were taken during magic hour and it was awesome. I have to recall this story because it was the cutest thing. Coleen and Tim's oldest son came out with them and as Coleen was telling him to stand out for some portraits he said to her, "Anything for you, my bride." He also asked his mom what she was going to do with her wedding dress and asked if he could save it for his future bride. So so sweet.

    Coleen and Tim, you two deserve the very best and I wish you the most beautiful future together. I know you've been waiting anxiously for these photos and I hope it was worth the wait. Thank again so much for welcoming me into your day.
