2014 was a good year, full of travel, amazing weddings and incredible couples. I always feel so lucky I get to enter into peoples lives and document the most important day of their life. I've met so many rad people and have had opportunities to work with the best vendors in the industry. With our third baby born this year, I didn't blog often enough so I tried grabbing snippets from the weddings I documented.
2015 is going to be so good. I know it.

If you're ever trying to find a way to ask your friends to be in your wedding, this was one of the sweetest and best ways I've seen. Heather, along with the help of her planners, Sterling Social, put together a beautiful lunch and picnic in a park. The girls knew they were headed to lunch but had no idea what they were in for. It did happen to be off and on pouring rain that afternoon but it didn't phase anyone. Look at this set up:
And then, as things were wrapping up, Heather's fiance Shane came down on a bike to surprise her. They're a pretty dang cute couple. Honored to have been a part of this afternoon.

Weddings are full of moments, full of detail, love, emotion, and so many other things. But sometimes the most beautiful things happen right in the middle of it all happening.

Every year, PDN (Photo District News) Magazine has a contest called the Top Knots, judging photos from the various parts of weddings submitted by tons of photographers. This year, I was so excited and honored to get First Place in the Reception Category!!
And an even bigger honor, I was interviewed by the magazine about shooting both commercial work (fashion photography or music photography) and wedding work. Here's a link to that article if you want to read the whole thing or head over to PDNonline!

Mark and Jane's wedding was a fun one for me to shoot. After meeting with Jane to initially talk about their wedding, we realized that I went to high school and played water polo with her fiance Mark. It was a blast re-connecting and their wedding was stunning. Formal and elegant with an easygoing, relaxed vibe. Hope you love the photos!
