As I arrived at Diane’s childhood home that spring morning, I noticed a wedding day timeline in the dining room. And not just any timeline. But a printed and framed 8×10, complete with photos of each location for the girls. Standing up on beautiful easel. Next was the mimosa station Diane had set up for the girls – with flowers and fresh fruit. Yes, that’s Diane. Details matter.

Finally, I walked into her childhood bedroom all completely redone, with the stunning Kenneth Winston gown hanging on a floor size mirror. She had worked on this room for months. And the morning was finally here. All the details were coming together.

She walked down the alter with her dad, who gained strength to use a walker after a long battle with cancer. A moment so special to her.  And after their heartfelt vows, Diane and Steve mingled with the wedding party and enjoyed drinks and appetizers at City Grill, while taking photos – before heading to their party at Ciociaro Club.

Diane and Steve, thank you for being so wonderful to work with. Diane, your wedding planning skills payed off! The day was absolutely perfect! I hope these images bring you back to that incredible day. Hugs…

After four years of dating, Adam was planning on proposing to Anita.  Months of long distance planning (along with help of her best friends), led them to this trip. Adam was jetting Anita off to California where it was all going to unfold.

There, at a picture perfect winery in Sonoma, he proposed at sunset. All while having it documented by a photographer from a distance. Bonus points.

Anita doesn’t remember exactly what Adam said while he was down on his knee, but through the heart pounding moments of joy and tears, she remembers saying yes before even seeing the ring. No hesitation.

Anita and Adam tie the knot in a few weeks. It will be such an honor to document their lives officially coming together. And who knows what kind of surprises Adam has planned for that day…

Sam couldn’t join Elisa at our first meeting. So as we chatted over coffee, Elisa told me a bit about their lives, adventures, and hobbies. And to this day, I remember one thing.  How Elisa spoke about Sam the entire time we talked. It was with respect and admiration – for the man he is.  She smiled just thinking about the cute things he did for her, and how special he made her feel. She simply couldn’t wait to marry him.

And on a very crisp January day, her dream came true.  As she walked down the aisle towards Sam, it was clear he felt the same way about Elisa. It was the perfect bond becoming official.

Elisa and Sam – my hope is that your love, respect, and admiration for each other grows and multiplies in the years to come. You’ve got something truly special! Big hugs…

Champagne is always a good idea! And on this chilly winter day, the bridal party sipped on champagne as we took photos at Mackenzie Hall.

These two are just effortlessly comfortable in each others arms. And Sam makes Elisa laugh like no one else.

Photographing these two in the snow made me love winter weddings in a new way. Sure, your fingers become a little numb. But there is something so magical about a bride against the backdrop of winter wonderland.
