We lucked out with the most gorgeous day for Eric & Michael’s November e-session! The fall colors were so rich, the light was perfect, and they had us all cracking up the entire time. I would love to shoot this session over & over again! We started at Forest Lawn in a dreamy leaf-covered spot I had been eyeing up that week, before heading downtown to a few of my favorite little nooks. They were open to any ideas, any brought a whole lotta fun to the session. I was already excited for their wedding, but now I really can’t wait!

I’m so excited to be sharing images from the final wedding of our 2016 season! Steve & I had a blast with Carly & Dave! They are just so adorable (and so gorgeous!), the weather was perfect, they booked such lovely venues, and overall, made our jobs so easy & fun! We were also lucky enough to celebrate with three fab City Lights couples 🙂 I started with the ladies at the Hotel @ the Lafayette for prep, where Dave met us for an incredibly sweet “first touch”. They didn’t want to see each other before their ceremony, but wanted a moment together. We found a great curved wall, where they stretched their hands until they met each other. You can just feel their joy and excitement all over again in those shots!

Afterwards, we headed downstairs for their ceremony inside the Crystal Ballroom. It was full of smiles, and tears. We then headed off for bridal party shots outside, at Delaware Park and the Butler Mansion before settling in at the Foundry for a wild party (and a few fun shots in their hotel suite!) Their reception was full of fun elements like handmade centerpieces, a cigar & whiskey bar, candles everywhere, even a delivery of Mighty Tacos! They ended the night with a sparkler send-off in the courtyard. It was perfect, from start to finish, and we loved being there to capture it!

It’s crazy to think I won’t be sharing another wedding for a few months! I’m a little sad my 2016 season is over; what a beautiful year it was! Every wedding was a dream & I felt such a connection with my couples. It reminded me, over and over again, how fortunate I am to have this job. Thank you to all of my clients who made this year so great! Can’t wait to see what next season brings!

One month ago today, you could find us at The Foundry Suites, celebrating Alex & Scott! The sun was shining, the fall colors were just starting to turn, and we were thrilled to be there to capture it all. I started with the ladies in a suite, while Colin captured Scott & the boys, before we met up for an incredibly adorable First Look, followed by a super cute gift exchange! We headed out for bridal party portraits afterwards, before returning for a stunning courtyard ceremony & fab party! Their reception was a blast, with Paula’s & Mayer’s Bros donuts, hot cider, a sparkler send-off & more, but I think my favorite moment was when Alex’s dad called her mom to the dance floor after his toast, and they shared a dance on their wedding anniversary! I love that A&S chose such a special date for their own wedding.

S&A are two of the most down-to-earth sweethearts you’ll meet and their joy just glowed from the inside out. To top it off, they had a wildly fun bridal party and a room full of energetic wedding guests, who really brought their A-game to the dance floor (you’ll see!) Thanks to A&S for inviting us to capture this gorgeous day; we LOVED being a part of it! XOXO

Meet my friend and fellow girlboss, Alaire! She’s the creator and owner of Laira+Lou Jewelry (which you need to head over & check out ASAP, because, well, her pieces are insanely awesome). She also has a thriving modeling career, and is an all-around lovely person, with an electric smile. You’ll see what I mean 🙂 We had a fab session together during my last visit to Miami, at one of my favorite places in the world, the Wynwood Arts District. Public art EVERYWHERE. Add in a gorgeous model, perfectly soft light, and talk about a photographer’s dream!
