Josh + Sara | Rose Marry Farms

From the moment I arrived at Rose Marry Farms on the morning of May 14th, I knew this was going to be one of the most relaxed weddings I had ever been a part of. Sara and Josh are some of the most easy going people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Even when various things were forgotten or didn't go as planned, Sara never stopped smiling, didn't sweat the small stuff, and you never would have guessed that everything wasn't absolutely perfect. Talk about a dream!

The venue was beautifully rustic, and decorated with perfect reflections of Sara and Josh's personalities. The weather was a little cold, but we were blessed with sunny skies and a refreshing breeze during photos. The ceremony was sincere, the reception was laid back, and everyone was full of joy celebrating this sweet love story.

The girls started the day getting ready in the beautiful bridal room on the property of Rose Marry Farms, while I snuck away to shoot some details. I then spent some time with the guys and then the girls, shooting portraits before the ceremony began. After the ceremony came group photos, and then they all headed into the reception for cake, barbecue, and time with friends and family. Finally, I snuck off with the couple after the reception for a few more photos with just the two of them.

Thank you, Sara and Josh, for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day. It was an honor and a privilege, and I wish you all the best in marriage and in life. Cheers friends! <3

Mitch + Ren | The Barn at Shady Lane

It was the coldest day of the season so far, but the sun poured golden light all around The Barn at Shady Lane, making everything look warm and creamy. The barn smelled of fresh flowers and peppermint icing. This was a shoot I had been looking forward to for months.

Every detail fell into place perfectly, from the beautiful florals by Stems and Styles, to the delicious wedding cake by Angie's Cakes. Somer Howe did Ren's hair and makeup, while I snuck away with her wedding dress, altered beautifully by her grandmother, for some detail portraits.

After that, the newlyweds and I headed out to begin shooting. We enjoyed cake, hot apple cider, and a walk in the sun. I couldn't have chosen a better couple to work with, their chemistry was just the easiest thing in the world to capture! Not to mention their willingness to endure the cold for the sake of our photos! ;)

I am so thankful to everyone who helped make this day possible. I couldn't have done it without you!

 

Chris and Crystal's Reception

Last month my Uncle Chris and his fiancé jetted off to Italy to tie the knot on the beautiful Amalfi Coast. It was a dream wedding, and the pictures were absolutely beautiful. This past weekend they held a stateside wedding reception, so all of their friends and family could celebrate with them! It was such a fun evening! I managed to photograph some of the details before the sun set and I thought it would be fun to share! :)
