Amanda & Rachel | Bloom Lake Barn Wedding

These two ladies hold a special place in my heart. Over the last year and a half, I found that I have freakishly similar tastes for many things in life as Rachel & Amanda. After coincidentally showing up to the same events more than once, and even realizing we were taking the same vacations within weeks of each other, I knew that working alongside them would be as easy as working with old friends. They made me laugh constantly, they gave me a to-go bag of donuts at their wedding (I mean... sweets are my love language 😍), and their love for each other is as beautiful as I've ever seen. A&R - thank you from the bottom of my heart for including me in your wedding day! xoxo

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.

Megan & Alex | Bunker Hills Golf Club Wedding

Two months ago today, it was a gorgeous day. The sun shined at a perfect 80 degrees on Megan and Alex as they united as one in front of their favorite people. I still find myself thinking back on their day and smiling.... I mean, what's not to love about their day? Their romantic color palette and details were incredibly fun for a photographer like myself to document. Their goofy wedding party had me laughing for the entirety of the day. The bride & groom giggled without holding back, finding the ultimate comfort in each other's arms under the branches of a willow tree. 

Joy and love. How do I get so lucky to be a part of this?!

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!!
