Walla Walla Wedding at Eritage Resort

Claire and Marc hosted the very first wedding at the brand new Eritage Resort in Walla Walla, WA. Their day was perfectly designed and executed (including all of the florals), by my dear friend, Kasey D weddings. It was my first time in Walla Walla and I fell in love immediately. It is such a beautiful part of the Pacific Northwest and I can’t wait until my next opportunity to visit.

Elegant Palm Beach Wedding at the Mar-a-Lago Club

Jourdan and John had the most beautiful wedding full of love, fun, and gorgeous florals. I have loved these two since I first met them when one of Jourdan’s best friends got married at Jourdan’s parents house. I was so excited when Jourdan and her mom, Stacey, reached out to me when Jourdan and John started planning their wedding.

Creating Evocative Family Photos

I recently added a question to my contact form asking you to choose three adjectives to describe the mood and feeling you want your wedding or photo session to evoke.  I did that because I want your photos to make you feel something, not just today, but 30 years from now, when you're showing them to your grandchildren.  If I've done my job as a documentary artist correctly, your grandchildren should be able to describe that mood even decades later. 

We all recognize that over time, photographs replace our actual memories, so it is incredibly important that those photographs honestly and authentically bring to life the story that we are telling together.  The story should reflect both the season of life you are in and the people that you are within that season, as individuals, as a couple or as a family unit.

I think I've successfully done that with this family session I photographed in Serenbe, Georgia last year.  What feeling do these photos evoke for you?  Film development and scanning by my friends at State Film Lab.

Bahamas Destination Wedding at The Cove Eleuthera

Jenny and Rudy's destination wedding at The Cove Eleuthera in the Bahamas was the perfect blend of style, intimacy, and all out party.  They flew their closest friends and family over from Miami and hosted a 4-day wedding weekend in Eleuthera and nearby Harbour Island.  It was all perfectly executed by my friends at Alore Event Firm.  The Bahamas holds such a special spot in my heart and it was a joy to spend the weekend documenting Jenny and Rudy's story in one of my favorite places on earth.  If you've never been, you need to put The Cove Eleuthera and Harbour Island on your bucket list.  Their day was featured in Modern Luxury Weddings.
