I was absolutely honored when Jess & Brandon asked me to photograph their rehearsal dinner. Matt and I had planned a weekend away in Newport, RI, to attend their nautical wedding, so I gladly added my camera gear to my packing list. Jess & Brandon have a magical love story (read more about it in their engagement blog here), so I couldn't wait to capture part of this next chapter of their lives together.
Harmony & Chris live in the incredibly scenic Queen Anne neighborhood in Seattle, which was perfect for an engagement photo session. I snapped some sweet moments of them together on the rooftop of their apartment building and their favorite spots in Queen Anne to celebrate their engagement as well as the 365-day countdown to their wedding! Congratulations, guys. :)
I spent this past weekend back in my childhood hometown of Cresson, PA, to spend time with family and escape the concrete jungle. It’s so calm and quiet there compared to the Mile Square City. Cresson sits 2,000 feet above sea level, so it’s always significantly colder than the surrounding towns. The ground was dusted with snow and the air was brisk. I spent a fair amount of time sitting at the kitchen table, catching up on some editing work while looking out over the snowy backyard lined with evergreen trees.
Laura and Troy met during placement testing before their first semester at Penn State. This might not sound so romantic, but they literally crossed paths on their very first day on campus together, which was the start of four incredibly special years during which they’d become close friends, make lifelong memories, and set the foundation of their forever…little did they know at the time.
On Saturday, August 12, 2017, my cousin married her dream guy. It was a lovely summer day at a winery in Cambridge, WI. Blue skies filled with cumulous clouds hung over rows of grape vines, which made a beautiful backdrop for a wedding ceremony. What made this day extra special for me was that I wasn’t there as just a guest, but as her wedding photographer.
