Thomas and Zoie | Wedding

“According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a bee should be able to fly.

The bee, of course, flies anyway. Because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.”

I know that’s a silly quote. But when i think of  Thomas and Zoie, i am reminded of this quote. What we all thought was impossible… was simply their flight. Their careless floating through the air.  It was easy and effortless for them; the way they met and fell in love and started a life together.

I remember every single step of this journey, because they were both friends of mine prior to their dating.

I got the phone call after their first date. The one where Zoie knew she would one day marry Thomas. And i sat in Thomas’s office when he told me how much he loved her.  And i sat in the kitchen with both of them when they were “just friends” and watched them interact. I remember when he rushed her to the ER because she had an allergic reaction to their dinner. And he sat with her in an emergency room all night.

But the most amazing part of being on this journey with them is seeing how well they support each other and how passionately they express love and devotion. They dream together. Laugh together. Exist together and play together. And while most would have thought that there is no way these two completely different individuals could one day stand before a room full of people and commit their lives to one another… they did anyway… because they don’t care what we think is impossible.

This entire day was a breath of fresh air. It was celebration and quiet reverie. It was everything we all wanted for our two friends and their families.

Thomas and Zoie… thank you for loving in a way that should inspire all of us to love beyond what we think we are capable of.

I begged Zoie to do a first look with Thomas. Every time i saw her or talked to her… begged. She stood her ground. But they met for prayer before the ceremony. This moment was so kind and pure. Zoie… seeing you smile at every point of this day…. made me the happiest i could ever feel. Right as the reception ended, Thomas and Zoie shared a last dance in an empty venue. It was THE perfect way to end their night. You, my friends, have my heart. I mean it every time i say that i love you both. that i am so proud of you. that being a witness to your relationship and celebrations brings me an incredible amount of joy in my own life. i love how you love everyone. and how you have purpose and intention. i know that this is just the beginning of an amazing life together and i can only hope that i can be in on the journey every now and then.

you make me happy. and i’m sorry i cried so much on your wedding day. but i love you. and i can’t help it.

be infinitely blessed

Ashton and Emma | Wedding

There is nothing I can say in this paragraph here that would encompass Ashton and Emma’s wedding day adequately. They had a beautiful day. It was such a peaceful and joyful day as everyone gathered around.

I photograph over 20 weddings a year; each special in their own way. I am often so caught up in working and photographing that I don’t slow down enough to feel. But on this day… every single one of us as witness could feel it. The joy. The love. The celebration.

and it just makes my job and life so fulfilling

In case any of you are wondering if a first look makes that “reveal” moment any less emotional or magical… Ashton and Emma. It has been a true joy and honor to know you. To photograph you. To celebrate you. And to love you. Thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer and for including me in your lives. This day will remain a highlight of my career. I am excited to see how you do marriage and life and family and can only hope that i’m along to document the ride!

Bella | Ballet Portraits

Ballet, for me, is an expression. I often refer to it as “poetry in motion.” Any time anyone comes to me wanting to incorporate ballet into their portrait sessions, I clap uncontrollably like a kid on Christmas morning.

Bella showed up with this pancake tutu and I literally almost fell over from excitement!

Bella – you are a doll and I love getting to know you and cannot wait for more and more memories and photos with you!
