There is something so incredibly romantic about doing an engagement session the day before your wedding. I'm so glad I was able to sneak away to Alys Beach with Alex and Matt for a few moments before their rehearsal dinner. The days before a destination wedding is so full with friends and family coming in to celebrate, so it's nice to get away for some moments alone in the midst of festivities. It's easy to see the eager anticipation these two share about tying the knot! Thank you for allowing me to capture your love, you two!Read More
It is such an honor to have this shoot on Style Me Pretty's front page today. It has been a dream of mine for quite some time now. Mozart once said, "Music is not the notes, but the silence between." In a way, images are the silence between moments as well. Throughout this whole editorial, I sought to encapsulate that idea, the beautiful dichotomy between movement and stillness. Colorado seemed a natural and ideal location. Nature itself is a perfect contrast between grandeur and simplicity. It is the the ultimate in-between. It is not too much of one or the other. These ideas were the basis for this shoot. The objective was to create grandness in the simplest way possible, and to express the mystery of "the silence between" in a pensive manner.Read More

There is almost nothing I adore more than photographing love in the most beautiful places. This gorgeous afternoon with Suzanne and Luke at this magical Southern estate was no exception. They are so in love and perfectly at ease with one another. The blooming arbors of Jasmine was nothing short of ethereal. I could have stayed with these two all day and been perfectly content. I cannot wait to photograph their beautiful wedding this Autumn!
There are a thousand reasons to love the Summer. The cool sand, ocean blues and warm rays of the sun are good for the soul. A few months ago our team started dreaming of some Summer wedding inspiration by the seaside. Here's a little more about the inspiration behind this concept of the shoot:
When I think of Summer the first thing that comes to mind is the ocean. Perhaps its because I grew up minutes away from the shore. Regardless, I've always been enthralled by the dichotomy between chaos and calm of the sea. It is both fierce and gentle in an ethereally and haunting way. It evokes a beautiful sense of longing for the unknown and intangible. The ocean has always moved my soul deeply. I knew it would be beautiful to merge my love of the sea and wedding inspiration. When I found the dream-like coast of Fort Pickens, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop. Our model is a ballet dancer, beautifully using her talent for capturing emotion through movement. It is as if her love is out at sea and she waits for him. Looking out upon the waves fill her with both immense longing and peace. Our floral and paper designs pulled everything together in perfect simplicity. The watercolor on the paper suite wonderfully mimics the lull of the tides. Again, the model's attire reiterated simplistic beauty and the organic-feeling tiara added just the right amount of elegance. We hope you feel as we do when looking at these images.Read More
