Yesterday I celebrated with Kaitlyn and Chris at Bear Brook Valley as they became husband and wife! Kaitlyn and Chris first met in middle school and have been best friends ever since. They didn’t begin dating until after college and that’s when everything fell into place. Chris proposed in Copenhagen, Denmark on her birthday by […]

Ashley and Connor met in college… Well, kind of. They met once. It wasn’t until after college when they bumped into one another at a bagel shop where sparks began to fly. Connor tracked Ashley down on LinkedIn and they started officially dating a couple months later. Connor proposed at The Plaza Hotel and the […]

When I arrived to Becca and Sam’s venue there was not a cloud in the sky and it was so sunny it almost hurt to be outside in the heat. By the time we were ready for portraits some clouds started coming in and we could feel a little breeze coming in. We were able […]

The day was absolutely perfect. I walked to the back of the beautiful Bonnet Island Estate and I just couldn’t contain my smile. Their blue barn filled with pink peonies, white roses and gorgeous greenery literally turned my eyes into that heart eyed emoji and I was floored with excitement and joy of getting to […]

Terrence was the first guy Emma brought home to her family and her two younger sisters immediately liked him. Between Emma’s childhood memories on the campus and their shared memories when […]

Cristina and Matt have been best friends since High School. They both grew up in the same town going to the same elementary and middle schools. They spent half their high school years together but never dated, but always stayed good friends. Every time they were home from college, they’d spend time together just as […]

The first one was in Kansas City, the 2nd one was in Fripp Island, SC and in August they’ll complete their wedding season in Germany. Patrick is from Kansas, Laura is from Germany and most of their friends are throughout […]

Bear Brook Valley Wedding – Kami and Ryan met in college and got engaged in December while on vacation with his family in Cabo. They went for a walk on the beach at sunset and he got down on one knee. They celebrated with champagne (and margaritas… my kind of girl) with his family that […]

Christina and Kevin planned their Planting Fields Arboretum Wedding to perfection. After scouting for the dreamiest location to bring their wedding visions to life, they found Planting Fields Arboretum in Long Island, NY. It was the ideal combination of lush greenery and stunning architecture that Christina wanted to incorporate. Their first look was stunning, adding […]

Portia + Elliot had the perfect wedding day! We’re talking clear blue skies, just enough breeze to not be too hot or too cold, and picture perfect locations all throughout Newport. These two met in Castine, Maine where Portia spent most of her childhood summers. They were on a mutual friends boat and “just hanging […]
