Sarah and Steven

Calistoga Ranch - Calistoga, CA
Thursday, July 16, 2015  |  Wedding
It seems like it was years ago when I first talked to Sarah and Steven on the phone. Steven from Austrailia and Sarah from Florida but both living in New York, they wanted a location that was a destination but somewhere in between the two locations. With that in mind they decided on Napa Valley, California. When we spoke they told me how important it was for me to be there to capture the reunion of their friends and family so I did just that. The weekend started with a barbeque around the pool up against a mountain and the rolling vineyard hills. It was casual and fun. That night I photographed their rehearsal dinner and the next day the wedding. Sarah is talented with a huge smile, beautiful personality and an amazing voice. Steven is smart and kind. And they are so in love. They were married in the vineyard beside the vines, followed by dinner at the top of the hill overlooking the mountains and lake then Calistoga Ranch opened up the wine cave for dancing. Everything was perfect. Tamara with TC Events didn't miss a single detail. It's always such a pleasure working with Tamara and her team.  
When I think of why I love doing what I do I always think of weddings and couples like this one. Creative, loving and so many emotions. I'm so thankful to have spent the weekend with Sarah, Steven and their guests and so very excited to share the rest of their gallery with them!

Lauren and Chris

Bozeman, MT
Thursday, July 2, 2015  |  Wedding
As a photographer there is nothing more flattering than when another photographer hires you to photograph their wedding, especially one as talented as Lauren Brown. I was excited and I have to admit very nervous! I left the Florida heat and flew to Montana and met Lauren in person the first time the day before her wedding when I crashed her rehearsal. Instantly I found she is as warm and kind as she is beautiful. Chris and Lauren were married at their home in the meadow behind their house. Their daughters were their flower girls and their wedding party was made up of their closest friends and family members. The entire day was filled with tears of joy! To say that these two incredible people are loved is an understatement.  
I'm so very excited to head back to montana in a few days to do a session with Chris and Lauren. They are going to put on their wedding attire and we're going to explore the mountains for gorgeous scenery. They are so much fun to be around and to photograph!

Kate and George

The Cloister at Sea Island GA
Wednesday, June 17, 2015  |  Wedding
What a breathtaking event! This wedding what an absolute pleasure to shoot! I was able to spend so much time with the couple, their families, friends and the wonderful team of vendors because there were so many events leading up to the actual wedding day. The weekend started with a welcome party and dueling pianos and poker night. Rehearsal day was full of events such a cruises for the guests, a bridal brunch and a rehearsal dinner complete with a fireworks show. I truly enjoyed every moment and I adore this couple and their family. John Gandy and his creative team did such an incredible job. Along with Kathy, Kate and John their wasn't a single detail that wasn't considered.  
I'm still diving through these images and loving all of them. I can't wait to share the full gallery! This is a preview of the actual wedding day. Other events will be added soon!  
Kate and George, your friends and your family, thank you for trusting me with this incredible honor. You are wonderful people and I'm so glad I was able to capture something for you that you will re-live for the rest of your lives.

Giancarlo and Bernardo

The Vizcaya - Miami, FL
Tuesday, May 12, 2015  |  Wedding
I love these two guys so much! I usually try to start a post with a story but I just wanted to start by confessing my love for these two dynamic and amazing humans who I now call my friends. I mean seriously, we have texted every day since their wedding! This was a photographers dream. It was also such a pleasure to work with Ray Roman Films and at one of my very favorite venues Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.  
The wonderful couple called me one day while I was driving out of state to shoot another wedding. Their wedding was coming up quickly and wanted to see if I was available to shoot it. They were originally going to fly to the Caribbean to get married but when their dream location had a last minute opening they jumped on it! The Vizcaya is a dream to experience. Gardens mixed with stone walls and steps leading to other gardens. They were married at the steps leading to the mansion then had dinner under the trees and the party up high overlooking the property. The guests wore shades of light blue, white or cream. Not a detail was left unfinished. We started the day at their amazing condo overlooking the Port of Miami and the Atlantic ocean where we caught a boat that took them to their venue. Family and friends greeted them as they arrived and then it was nonstop smiling and celebrating.  
I love that my job introduces me to people I may never have met. I have so enjoyed getting to know Giancarlo and Bernardo and look forward to dinner coming up in Miami Beach! Cannot wait to share this full gallery!  
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be creative, think outside of the box and give you something unique and interesting! You two are the best!

Heather and Grant

The Rosewood Crescent - Dallas TX
Monday, May 11, 2015  |  Wedding
Weeks later and I can still hear Heather's laugh and see her smile. Heather is beautiful, brilliant and so kind! Early on the morning of her wedding she sent me a text and invited me to have coffee with her and her maid of honor and I sat and chatted with them and listened to them talk about the engagement, the planning and her love and adoration for Grant. Sometimes a couple just get each other and they pull out the very best in the other person and immediately I saw that about the two of them. Grant is smart and warm with a look in his eye like he has a joke. He's a gentlemen.  
When I flew to Dallas to photograph their wedding I had never met either of them or their families but immediately I was caught up in the excitement around this wedding. Heather and I had communicated for a while before her wedding and I was so excited to finally meet her. The day started with a packed suite on a corner room of the Rosewood Crescent. Laughter is all you heard as they got ready for the day. When it was time for Heather to put on her dress she did it alone with her mother and maid of honor. This is always such a special time and this was just as special as I imagined it would be. Heather's mom looked on with such excitement as she watched her daughter become a bride. When the bridesmaids were finally able to see Heather totally dressed in white they screamed with excitement as you can imagine. The first look was special and funny as they exchanged gifts that were more of an inside joke between the two of them. Heather gave Grant clunky cream tennis shoes that most people in their 20's and 30's don't wear to symbolize they will grow old together.... and go on cruises. The ceremony was sweet and meaningful and the party was a party! You could always find the couple on the dance floor and then they exited to a sparkler exit.  
This is a wedding that will always live with me. Heather's laugh, her smile and her bright eyes full of life are hard to forget. I love seeing two people come together who are so obviously meant to be.
