Ethan and Neyda | Married

Ethan and Neyda are high school sweethearts.  Their day was filled with the most tender emotions, the sweetest celebrations and honest expressions of family support and encouragement. It was truly touching to see both of their families come together on this evening. It felt as though they had been doing it for years… and then i realized … they had. 

And i love it. I love that they truly have a support team behind them every step of the way in their new life together. It was a sweet day of warm memories and love.

This has been a complete joy to know you throughout the years and on your journey through life and now marriage.

Ethan’s reaction …. so honest.
Ethan and Neyda. Wow. what a true honor to have known you all these years – from the beginning(ish) and to be celebrating you on your wedding day. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to highlight your most fond memories and milestones in life. I  look forward to many more!

be infinitely blessed

Taylor and Berklee | Engaged

Taylor and Berklee. Not to be cliche or anything but… i kinda feel like they are relationship goals. They laugh non stop together. Each time i have met with them, we spend most of our time just hanging out laughing. I have known Berklee for quite some time; i did her graduation photos. However, it wasn’t until i met Taylor and saw them together that i got to know this side of her. They bring out the best in each other and it’s naturally joyful.

It makes photographing them super easy! I love that they just embrace life as they go. Spontaneously decide to head to the rooftops of downtown or jump into a waterfall. If their engagement session is any indication of the kind of marriage they will have, i can see a lifetime of happiness, acceptance, playfulness and connection.

Taylor and Berklee – thank you so much for choosing me. And for allowing me into your little bubble. Watching you two together is so much fun. and as much as i enjoy the pretty posed images, the ones that really steal my heart and make me a firm believer in your relationship are the moments in between. The real ones. the imperfect ones. The way you organically accept whatever the situation is, is so refreshing and positive. I love that you have found each other in this big world and that you have only just begun a life as fun as this. i cannot wait to celebrate you on your wedding day!

Kenadee | Portraits

Kenadee. Holy smokes. I have been photographing this young lady for quite some time now. She comes from a large group of women that are all stunning. Kenadee is the youngest of this group and wanted to get her portraits taken. I must’ve grumbled at least a million times about not looking this beautiful at her age.

But i’ll tell you… Kenadee shines from the inside out. She has a smile that can light up the room or make you feel instantly joyful. She is energetic and youthful and has the most contagious laughter.

I am so thrilled to share these images with you all!

not sure who is responsible for us waiting so many years to do photos of you by yourself. but i say we do it often! you amaze me and i really enjoyed getting to know you better one on one. you are a dream to know and photograph and i cannot be more thankful to be like the adopted second cousin in your family. thank you again and again for making our time together so fun and for bringing me a breath of fresh air when i need to pause and enjoy life!

They are light hearted and fun and are truly present in their moments with one another. Ashton and Emma – honestly. It brings my heart so much joy to see a love like yours.

Caitlin | Portraits

I have been photographing this stunning young lady for a while now. She ALWAYS blows me away. Caitlin is quiet and reserved and to herself.  But once you point a camera at her, she opens up and really lets herself be vulnerable and open.

Caitlin, you amaze me. I loved catching up with you and hearing about all the fun and exciting things that have taken place this year for you. I have the utmost confidence that you have many many more blessings to be poured out over you. Thank you for sharing your milestones with me and allowing me to be in close proximity to all the joy in your life! You will always be one of mine!

be infinitely blessed
