WILL + RENEE | Grand Oaks Manor — Florida Wedding

When Will contacted me about photographing his surprise proposal in Central Park the summer of 2016, the last thing on my mind was being able to fly out to photograph his future Florida wedding — but man oh man, am I so happy I was given the honor to.

CHAZ + GRANT | Maple Shade Farm — New York Wedding

Normally, when one thinks of New Yorkers, the image of a person living in the concrete jungle, running their finance firm in Wall Street, donning a sleek look and fresh Italian brewed coffee in hand comes up. One thinks, they must hate nature and everything about it. Well, apparently not Chaz and Grant!

ELIZABETH + RYAN | Turf Valley Resort — Maryland Wedding

So when Elizabeth and Ryan came to me and told me that they didn't care for either of those and wanted to focus on the party, I have to be honest — every fiber in me wanted to run. Instead, I decided to challenge myself and threw my usual method out the window (although I did convince them to let me take a few portraits before the party began). And I'm so glad I did!...
