a chicago wedding - liz & colin

liz & colin are the stylish, cool, know-of-all-things-good type of couple. 

i knew i had to photograph their wedding soon after i found out they were engaged - so glad we hit it off and i could be a part of this. the day was magic - it started by having their first look in the gorgeous, garfield conservatory to riding around in a vintage rolls royce to eating tacos to having the best celebration with their closest friends and family. 

can't get enough of these two.

congatulations, liz + colin - happy one month of being married!

praiano, italy - the day of the wedding.

karen and chris were wed at the beautiful, modern casa angelina lifestyle hotel in praiano, italy. the florals were done the day of by the bride herself, the mood was so easy and relaxed, helping each other get ready. they had their first moments together in the magical courtyard of the hotel which was so lush and green.

their ceremony overlooked the water consisting of just a handful of us- no guests. after the wedding, we ended the day at the beach and watched the sunset.

amore eterno -

introducing, the lims .

the lim wedding pt I: positano and amalfi, italy .

it's hard to describe the beauty that we witnessed on the amalfi coast in italy this past october. karen and chris asked me to photograph their elopement in this amazing place and i am so honored and thankful to have been a part of it.

the first few days, we stayed in the town of positano which is like the hawaii of italy. there were so many firsts! while there, we walked the cobblestone streets, tried gelato, took a ferry to the wonderful town of amalfi where we visited the duomo di amalfi, had pizza from an adorable local italian woman at the deli and most importantly, positano is the city where karen and chris had their first look. 

karen and chris got ready at the most beautiful boutique hotel, le sirenusè. when chris first saw his bride, it was in the square of the gorgeous, chiesa di santa maria assunta. 

this is part I of our adventure together.

the anderson's have always made me feel like family. after photographing emily's wedding, i was anxiously awaiting for the next daughter to get engaged. last december, i received an email from katie asking me to document their day.

i feel as though these two will always be young at heart. 

here are a few moments from their beautiful wedding in may at the bauer .

emily + reid

i loved photographing these two. they are genuine, kind, gracious souls who welcomed me on their day and treated me like family. most of the details of their wedding were hand-made, including the most gorgeous cake made by emily's sister, molly.

one of my favorite parts of their wedding was reid's reaction during the first look. the first time he saw emily all day literally made him weak in the knees and that is why i do what i do. true connection.

here's to re-living this lovely day last may.

the gypsy + the musician. amanda and paul's magical wedding weekend in arcadia, mi .

the gypsy marries the musician.

i took a ceramics class with amanda my last summer before graduating college, which is where i discovered how inspiring and magnetic she is. she's an amazing installation artist, adventurer, dreamer; a good hearted north carolina native. she met paul on a dating site and once he flew to denmark to meet her in real time, they knew.

i've never photographed a wedding where i felt so at home. amanda and paul invited me to stay in one of the cottages at watervale inn along with all of their closest friends + family. a tiny, colorful village right on the water. they had guests coming in from all around the world to celebrate the two of them. everywhere from australia, denmark, uk, canada, berlin, nc, + more. these two are loved.

there was a bbq the first day, a bonfire on the beach that night, hiking, swimming, porch-hanging. everything you could ever want while celebrating one of your favorite couples. there were so many great moments, but i'll let these photographs show you how that weekend in september played out.

amanda and paul, thank you for allowing me to document your day. i can't wait for you to re-live this.

this is the day that shannon and clint were wed on her parents' farmland in blaine, ks .

"he came for a bookshelf, but ended up with me instead."

shannon and clint met at her late grandmother's auction in wamego, ks during fourth of july weekend. in that moment, they knew something was there.

these two are so humble and kind. they wanted to have a down home, intimate wedding at shannon's parents land in the small town of blaine, ks and they threw one hell of a party. shannon's bridesmaids even changed the lyrics of a classic beastie boys hit and made the lyrics about the bride + groom.

here are some photographs from their day. a huge thank you to my friend, lauren for helping out with this one.
