To Love in the Fall

From the moment I met Amanda and Zack, I knew photographing this wedding was going to be a lot of fun!  Not only did I get to hire Fatima (Fatima Mughal-Ansan Photography) as my oh so talented second shooter for the day, this wedding was my very first Orthodox Jewish wedding.  Not to mention the awesome, stunning couple I got to work with all day!

I loved the rich, ancient traditions that were laced throughout the day (I now know awesome words like chuppah!) and the sweet, intament moments that made the day so unique (what a stunning first look this couple had!).

And then there was all the pretty details…the perfectly miss-matched bridesmaids dresses, the stunning stone mansion venue, the lace and mason jars.

Below are just a few of my very favorite images from the day!  Best of luck Amanda and Zack as you go through life together!

Upward and Onward,

To Families Coming Together

I had the privilege of working with this beautiful family this fall!  We got some fantastic shots with the beautiful Nolde Creak State Park as our backdrop.  Absolutely ADORED their bright yellow and blue outfit color scheme; it worked perfectly with the fall colors in the background.


Here are a few of my favorite images from their shoot.


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Upward and Onward,



To Chelsea and Jason

I ADORE couples like this:


Me:  “Look at that awesome spot over there! That would make a beautiful picture.  Too bad it’s across the creek though.”


Chelsea and Jason: “Not a problem!”


*begin to forge through the forest and cross the creek*


Seriously though, watching these two together was too sweet, holding hands and helping each other out as they hiked.  I cannot wait to see them get married and wish them all the best!


Enjoy a few of my favorite pictures from their engagement shoot at Nolde Forest earlier this spring!



Upward and Onward,

To Remembering Winter’s Lovely

Winter finally is laying down its sleepy head to rest for a few months, but when I dug up these shots of my beautiful sister that I hadn’t got around to posting earlier…well, I just couldn’t resist.  Enjoy!

Upward and Onward,

To the Most Adorable Baby Girl

This girl….*squeal*…is so absolutely precious.  One look at her huge brown eyes and sweet little lips will have you falling head over heals, just like I was when I was working with her and her parents.  Here are a few of my favorites from their shoot, Enjoy!

Upward and Onward,

To Love (and Other Awesome Things)


I just had to get these two up on the blog before Valentines!

Something about the love and joy these two share is absolutely contagious! They picked out an amazing location for their engagement shoot–complete with romantic bridges, stunning gardens, and even a castle–and we were blessed with a lovely, warm day in the middle of this long, cold winter.  (I’d take it as a good omen. ;) )

Here’s a few of my favorite pictures from their shoot!

Upward and Onward,

To Breaking in that Wedding Dress

Oh my goodness! So this fall I had the absolute honor of doing something that I bet is on just about every photographer’s bucket list…a trash the dress shoot!

It’s not every day you get to work with a couple willing to troop through the woods in their fanciest of dress cloths like Dwight and Inna so photographing this adventurous duo was a blast (even though I did fall into a creek and ripped my favorite jeans…oops!).

Anyhow, here are just a few of my favorite shots from the day.  Enjoy!

Upward and Onward,
