Sam & Brian | Stone Ridge Golf Club Wedding

Sam & Brian had a wedding day so dreamy that I would be selfish not to share the eye candy details and uber-romantic, sun-drenched portraits with all of you. Everything that they surrounded themselves in that day was amazing, from the venue to the people chosen to stand by their sides. I love a wedding party who knows how to have fun, and I love a couple like Sam & Brian who break out in dance parties in the middle of their bride/groom portraits. 😂 

I'm SO happy that I got to photograph this awesome couple from the moment Brian placed that gorgeous engagement ring on Sam's finger, to when he topped it off with a wedding band and made their forever together an official thing. These two are truly made for each other and it's so fun to capture!!

An incredible team of wedding professionals helped make this day as beautiful as it was! Scroll to the bottom for some shout-outs and awesome talent.

Amy & Chris | Cottage Winery & Vineyard Wedding

There was so much beauty and so much fun to be had on this day! Amy & Chris are my definition of perfect clients -- they are silly, laid-back, have impeccable style, and fully put their trust in me to do my thang and photograph their biggest moments in life so far. How amazing is that?! We have a blast working together and I already miss my time spent with them; lucky for me I've now blogged my favorites from their wedding day so I can easily browse through them at any given moment. I hope you'll all join me in doing the same! Behold the beauty that was the Wadsworth's Wedding Day!!

Carri & Sam | Gardens of Castle Rock Wedding

Let's just go ahead and say #blessed when it comes to this wedding because, well, it's cheesily fitting and I feel such an overwhelming sense of happiness about this wedding when it gets down to it! I have known Carri since junior high school and have always had nothing but wonderful things to say about the woman. She is generous, kind, goofy, has a solid faith, and I admire SO many things about her. Now she has found and solidified her love for a man that loves her equally as much and it just thrills me that I got the chance to have a small stake in their wedding day. It was a stunning day that I will look back on with joy for a long, long time!!

Abby & Jason Married

Oh how I love reliving this day. So much beauty in the venue, in the couple, and most of all -- in their love for each other. Anyone who was present at this stunning soirée could feel the depth of Abby & Jason's immense love for one another and the joy of it all was absolutely contagious!!
