I've started to notice a pattern. With each weekend, I capture another couple: a distinctive day, complete with its own unique story.

When I meet a couple who just "gets it" -- there's something magic afoot. They experience my work & my style & get that giddy feeling like this-is-the-one. They appreciate my love for nature, creative close-ups, & natural (albeit goofball) interactions. They are totally on-board to get silly, love each other up, & create gorgeous images together.

Ann & Teddy reached out to me about capturing their wedding day just a few weeks beforehand. I was peached-as-punch to capture their ceremony, which was simple, sweet & very intimate. Under a radiant September sun, family from near and far gathered around the Rose Garden gazebo. There were tears of joy, a sweet grandmother taking snapshots, & a ship sailing smoothly across the big lake. All the while, Ann
