Tulum, Mexico Engagement | Lauren + Tom

Lauren & Tom have been watching me work for years since I have shot 3 of her friend’s weddings going all the way back to 2009! When they decided to have their engagement session somewhere more exotic, the world was our oyster, we went back and forth over e-mails and phone calls deciding on the perfect place that worked for both of our schedules. Inevitably we decided on Tulum, Mexico, the perfect combination of paradise and history. Tulum surprised as far as how beautiful it was but also the fact that it wasn’t overrun by huge resorts like Cancun. Instead, perfectly manicured boutique hotels. I look forward to getting down and catching up with former clients at their wedding this March in Austin.

Ithaca, NY Wedding | Tana + Michael

Tana & Michael first spotted us in New Orleans at Deirdre & Beau’s wedding. I love being able to catch up with former clients at weddings. I first officially met them at sunrise in Washington D.C. for their engagement session. Tana & Michael are the kind of people you want to be friends with as soon as you meet them. They kind of people that are the perfect balance of smart & organized and fun & easy-going. Michael even tried to drag me on the dance but with two cameras hanging from each side I tend to not be the best dance partner at weddings. I’ll just have to stick to my embarrassing solo dance attempts. Tana & Michael did an amazing job of DIYing most of the wedding details, including a program with write-ups of every single one of their 140 guests. The ceremony had the perfect beginning with Tana’s father & step-father walking her down the aisle. It ended with them opening a bottle of champagne together and drinking a glass as they signed the marriage license in front of everyone. The reception was a dance party with the best of dance moves, starting with a traditional hora, just for fun.
