Hawaii is absolutely one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, so I was beyond excited at the opportunity to go for a second time last spring. I brought along my good friend and fellow wedding photographer, Lindsey Thorne, to photograph the wedding with me. Sarah & Miguel had friends and family from all over the world meet them in paradise to celebrate their long awaited union at St. Augustine By the Sea. After the ceremony we wandered the beach amongst the tourists soaking sun and slowly made our way to the reception at the Terrace at The Hyatt Regency overlooking Waikiki beach. The next morning we got up at 4:30 in the morning to have a day after session at sunrise, it was difficult to pull ourselves out of bed but it was worth the journey. We wandered over sharp rocks and got splashed by water as I covered my camera with my dress at every wave. Thank you Sarah & Miguel for going on the adventure with us and for treating us to Leonard’s donuts afterwards.

Robyn has been a mutual friend of mine for many years but it wasn’t until recently that I got to know and love her. We immediately clicked thanks to our similar personalities and am super bummed that they recently made the move to Las Vegas for Keegan’s job. Luckily, with our group being full of nomads, I still get to see my distant friends often. This past July a group of 10 of us, organized by my good friends Jona & Jerry, made a trip out to Croatia to enjoy the Mediterranean sunshine. Initially, we weren’t planning on doing a big session, just a few photos at sunrise to capture the beauty of Split without a swarm of tourists. However, I was so inspired at 5am by this charming city that I couldn’t help myself to continue on, dragging them around and up to the top of the hill for 2 hours. We can all agree though that it was absolutely worth the post shoot exhaustion and nothing that a nap on the beach couldn’t cure. I am so happy to have gotten to know both of them even better on this trip and look forward to not only visiting them in their new home but also shooting their wedding day in one of my favorite cities, San Francisco, next May.

I am thankful to find myself in Washington D.C. once or twice a year, I’ve grown to love this metropolis and the its’ photogenic architecture. Jen & Aaron found me thanks to Deirdre & Beau’s New Orleans wedding a few years ago. Their wedding was at the Carnegie Institution for Science but we made sure to venture out the Lincoln Memorial for portraits before the ceremony. So many tears shed, beautiful couple, and iconic backdrops made this wedding feast for my artistic soul. Thank you again Jen & Aaron for bring me out to D.C. to be a part of your big day.

If I haven’t said it enough, I am incredibly grateful and appreciative for the interesting people I have met throughout my career. While Erin is from Texas, I didn’t actually get to meet her & Felix until we were bunked up at the Schloss Eckberg castle in the middle of December. It was very cold for my Texan blood but the Christmas market was in full force so I had plenty of mulled wine to warm me up. Christmas time in Germany is beyond charming, combine that with an adorable love story and my heart was ready to explode. Felix is from Germany, in a town not far from Dresden, but they met in a bar in El Paso, TX of all places. The German military has taken him all over but that didn’t slow them down, Erin made sure to travel to wherever he ended up stationed. Their ceremony was sweet and heartfelt but what I will never forget is the amount of love that was poured into every speech given. When I say there was not a dry eye in the house/castle, I mean it, including me. Erin’s two brothers totally melted my heart. Since the sun set at 4pm on the wedding day, we went back out for more photos of the two of them in Dresden a couple days later. MAJOR props to Erin for looking warm in all the photos considering it was a chilly 35 degrees that day. That night her family took all of us out to a traditional German dinner that ended in the hotel spa with champagne. This was one hell of a weekend I will never ever forget. Can we do it again some time? Special thanks to Tricia Hamil for helping the day run smoothly & for making it more beautiful.
