C+D | Mayfair Farms Wedding

After 12 long years of connecting, moving, losing touch, meeting by chance and finally dating, Christine + Donald are married! I could not be happier for this sweet duo. There was a palpable sense of honor from the moment they saw and cherished each other during the first look (his reaction is one of the best!), to the way they cared for their family and friends throughout the day. They’re the kind of people who can’t help but love and serve those around them, as confirmed over and over by heartfelt speeches during the reception. 12 years is a long time to wait. So it only made sense that they culminated this most anticipated celebration with their love for swing dancing. They got moves!!

Christine + Donald, I can’t express how much I loved capturing your big day. A huge thank you for letting me be a small part of it to capture all the small, big, and in-between moments of your biggest day :) Cheers to the next 12 years and more!

C + D | Central Park Engagement Session

Their story is one of persistence, patience, and providence. After meeting each other at a church small group 12 years ago, their paths kept crossing and then missing. Fast forward to 2017 when they finally rekindled their friendship, and shortly after, became engaged! Throughout their engagement session, I could sense their utmost love and respect for each other, and their anticipation to finally get married after all these years. I love their down-to-earth feel, and had a blast capturing Christine’s charm and Donald’s genteel nature. So excited to celebrate and capture their big day this weekend!

A + B | 10 Year Anniversary Vow Renewal at the Candlewood Inn

These two pulled out ALL the stops to celebrate their 10 year anniversary! Not only did they choose a jaw-dropping venue, but Amanda (who I’m convinced should go into event planning - just look at all the details!) made sure their intimate ceremony would take place outside by the water during the dreamiest golden light - oh my photographer heart! As they renewed their vows in front of their family and with their two beautiful children by their side, Brian pulled out the sweetest surprise - a new ring, reminiscent of the rings they had exchanged years before. Not to be outdone, Amanda had her own surprise up her sleeve! For the reception, she rented a white baby grand piano (swoon!) to play and sing “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran for her hubby. I’m pretty sure everyone was a little misty-eyed by the end of her performance :) What a privilege to capture such an amazing milestone celebration for this beautiful family! Serious #couplegoals, #familygoals, #everythinggoals!!

In Amanda’s words: Over the last ten years, we have shared so many wonderful memories together and have undoubtedly grown to love each other even more than ever. Through the many challenges, accomplishments, ups and downs, celebrations and sleepless nights, we managed to build a business together, and more importantly grow our family to include our two most beautiful blessings. We are each other's companion, anchor for when times get rough, and best friend. It's amazing to look back at where we first started and stand where we are today and see just how far we've come. We feel so grateful each and every day for the many blessings God has brought to us.
