Cheryl and Adnan’s lovely wedding at the St Regis could be a tutorial on how to throw an elegant, intimate celebration. It was a beautiful day with two truly wonderful people, and the dear folks who are closest to them. Beauty and fun and love…yes! Also, super props to my spirit animal Ashley at Flower Child Weddings for the incredible planning and details.

For the next month, I’m offering something new that I’ve been wanting to do for ages. YES! I adore those vintage moon photos that were taken at fairs and carnivals in the early 1900s. I love that the mood of the images can be cute, silly, fun, romantic…anything goes! So, I’ve created my version of that set-up, and will offer a session special for a limited time. This can be an awesome experience for any type of couple, or kiddos, or your extremely tolerant pet, or your extremely tolerant BFF.  : ) It’s all about a good time, and photos, and definitely a good time. You can see all the info below. I hope to see you soon, sitting on the moon!

Happy 2016 to you!!! I hope this new year treats you well. So, I haven’t blogged in roughly 1 million days. Guess what my resolution is going to be? I have many wonderful shoot experiences to post. Here is the most recent. This lovely gentleman just entered the world to join his incredible parents. My pal Ashley from Flower Child Weddings waved her styling wand and created a couple magical set ups for us too. This sweet family makes me swoon. I can’t think of a better way to bring in the new year than to celebrate a new life. Welcome, little guy!!

Earlier this year, I had a wonderful adventure out west. I visited breathtaking canyons, spent time with good friends, and got to second shoot this wedding at The Icehouse with my pal Elicia (Elicia Bryan Photography). As if that wasn’t enough, the wedding was a surprise! The guests, and even the parents of the bride and groom, thought it was a bon voyage party since the couple was about to move to New York. It was so cool watching folks enter the ceremony site to discover what was really planned. There was an abundance of beauty and family love. A glorious wedding I won’t soon forget.

We had so much fun with this bridal shoot (a collaboration with event planners Flower Child Weddings). The lovely Sam really embodied the relaxed, modern, seaside wedding look we wanted to convey. You can almost smell the salt water and feel the breeze. This would be the perfect look for a bride who wants to be comfortable, stylish, and timelessly beautiful.
