My kind of wedding. Outside. On a cute little farm (Vierra Farms!). Good food. Good people. Dancing under some twinkly lights. Can’t get better. These two and their day was pretty amazing. La la loved their first look and so thankful to be a part of it all.

I love documenting families in all their newness in their own home. Baby’s first week or two. Still sleepy. Parents adjusting. I’m very thankful and grateful for clients that believe in me. I think most people are afraid that their home isn’t clean enough or beautiful enough to document, but really home is where it’s at. Your home is a curated place of love and memories, familiarity and intimacy. And honestly, it’s you in all your realness that create beautiful images. So thank you Noah and Whitney for the honor of documenting your little family in all it’s realness.
“And in the end I know that we’ll find
Love so beautiful and divine
We’ll be lovers for a lifetime, yeah
And I’ll stay with you.”
“Your love is bright as ever.
Nobody sees what we see
They’re just hopelessly gazing
Baby take me, take me
Before they turn the lights out.”
“You keep me safe. I’ll keep you wild.”
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. Nothing makes me happier than clients that let me into their home. Their space. Their shared memories. Being able to capture people in their element is so so important to get photographs that transcend just the typical impersonal “pose in front of that landmark”. Photographs that move you. That make you feel a certain comfort or security. Those laughs that you share in your most common space. The way you touch while curled up eating pancakes on the couch. The moments you lock away in your heart because they’re personal. They’re sweet and silly and sexy and fun.
But I also love the adventure. Let’s get you laughing and seeing beauty. Let’s make this day really special. When do you get to get dolled up and be models for the day? Let’s make new memories that are wild and free. Because isn’t that the best part of a relationship: feeling safe, so that you can live your life being truly you wild and free?
Also, side note: Andrea gives me realllll hair envy. I think I’ve been taking my vitamins more regularly since photographing her in hopes of having my hair grow that long 🙂
It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged. And even more so since I’ve photographed stars. But when a friend emails you about the new moon and a great spot to drink wine and identify constellation, you’re in.
The second photo is when my camera fell down the hill 🙂
This garden wedding at the Inn at Park Winters is one to remember. It’s a favorite venue of mine because it fits so many styles, not to mention the people that run that place are some of the kindest people you’ll ever meet. There’s spaces to make your wedding rustic, contemporary, 20’s garden themed, and more. There’s fields and barns, beautiful art work and antique pianos, old trucks and trees strung with hammocks. It’s truly a place to let style come out. It’s so important for my clients to chose places that really speak to who they are and what they love. When you chose a venue that is so perfectly “you” there is less that needs to be done in the way of decorating or styling. Peter and Emma knew exactly this when they got married. Their day was just simply… them.
Also, can we talk about how precious it is that they held hands and prayed together in two side by side doorways, so that they weren’t able to see each other before their ceremony. Adding in moments into your day such at that is where it’s at.
Special thanks to Nicole for being an amazing second shooter that day 🙂
