Zac + Chelsi | Riviera Maya, Mexico

Zac and Chelsi were married in beautiful Riviera Maya. It was a small gathering of their family and closest friends. I cannot have imagined a more perfect way for these two to join their lives together.
All week, Zac and Chelsi celebrated with their guests; going on excursions, having dinner, and lunch and poolside laughter. They were sure to make everyone feel special and included.
I am so excited to share the photos from their wedding day!!

Matt & Jenny | Anniversary Session

My friends Matt and Jenny just celebrated their eighth anniversary. I have known them for just a little longer than that and have been waiting for the time when i could finally get them both before the camera. So… when Matt contacted me about surprising his wife with a day of beauty punctuated with a photo session, i was more than happy to jump on board!!
I met Jenny at a coffee shop. She asked me over and over about what was happening. What’s going on? Are you my surprise? What am i doing? Where are we going? What… what is this?
To which i responded … “i’m only doing what i’m told!”

Jenny is such a joy to photograph. She has so much personality and spirit and it just radiates.
cMJenni000cMJenni001cMJenni002you are… by far… one of the most fun people i have ever photographed! cMJenni003Then! Matt joined us for the last part of the session. This is when things took a different spin. I love seeing how they care for each other and how well they fit. It made me the happiest photographer!cMJenni004 cMJenni006cMJenni005cMJenni007cMJenni008And this… might get me in trouble. When i asked them how long they had been married, it took them just a second to figure out the math. cMJenni009Matt and Jenny…. this could get lengthy. So i have known you both really well individually. Jenny : having seen your talents on stage and in the theatre world and then as a friend.  You are of the most caring, passionate and truly invested people i know. Your ability to care genuinely for your fellow man is inspiring and heartwarming. Having recently been on the receiving end of your generosity and kindness only further affirms what i’ve always known and felt about you. Matt: having worked on committees with you and sat in the quiet corner of our loud theatre gatherings… i have learned so much about who you are as a person. You are quiet and calm and shy, mayhaps… but beyond the exterior, you are one of the most passionate, direct and intentional human beings i have ever had the good fortune to meet. If you say something, you mean it.  As a couple: i see how well these different fibers blend together and create who you are as husband and wife. It’s the kind of union to aspire to. And i surely speak on behalf of our many friends, when i say that i am glad to know you, glad to share all shapes and journeys of life with you, and am glad that my world is better because you are a part of it. Thank you! for being everything that you are. and for asking me to photograph your memories and milestones. I love you both dearly.
