sarah + brian | BENTLY RESERVE WEDDING

Boy meets girl. Girl fails to hit it off with boy (a longer story that Brian will never quite let Sarah live down). They both end up coming around, and girl marries boy. It sounds like the script of the latest Hollywood romantic comedy, but it was the unscripted real life love story that left […]

kaitlin + will | WHEELER HOUSE WEDDING

What happens when a couple voted by their senior class as “The Best Couple That Never Happened,” well, happens? Only one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever had the joy to attend and photograph! Kaitlin and Will’s wedding at the Wheeler House in Ball Ground, Georgia, was magic from beginning to end. This actually […]

kavya + eric | BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Atlanta Wedding

Wedding planning is never easy, but I’m convinced that Kavya is secretly a superhero. She planned not only one wedding, but two – a Hindu wedding at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Atlanta, followed by a Christian wedding the next day. Kavya brought two cultures together in a beautiful celebration, and all while traveling constantly […]

emma + katie | BRICKYARD MARIETTA WEDDING

It felt so appropriate that I would celebrate my one-month anniversary of pursuing photography full-time by returning to the place where I first started photographing weddings – which was over 8 YEARS ago!!! To be entirely honest, not much has changed (even though the number of shutter clicks on my camera and the state of my email […]

Ethan was in his second year of his residency at the University of Maryland. Angela was just starting her third year of medical school. They met when Angela’s surgical rotation took her through the ophthomology department – specifically, Ethan’s department. The two were paired together in many mentoring sessions. To Ethan, Angela was a bright and curious […]

vanessa + danny | CASA REAL WEDDING

I was immediately drawn to Vanessa and Danny’s ability to find romance in the everyday, back when we first met up for this couple’s epic San Francisco engagement session. We explored the entire city together, from Legion of Honor, to Crissy Field, ultimately ending up at Baker Beach for those incredible sunset views of Golden Gate […]

vaidehi + samir | BAPS SHRI SWAMINARAYAN MANDIR WEDDING

A chance online meeting for these two led to a lifechanging coffee house date.. followed by several more.. and then an incredible proposal in Miami involving a drone carrying in the ring. Uhm. True story. Vaidehi and Samir’s traditional Hindu wedding had SO many celebratory details that a whole weekend was just barely enough to cover it […]

tiana + howard | BROOKLYN WINERY WEDDING

I’ve revamped some of my workflow processes when it comes to blogging weddings, and I’m hoping all the new tips I’ve picked up along the way from friends and mentors will keep me on track with showcasing my recent work! It’s been an incredible year of growth for me as a wedding photographer and I […]
