Hannah + Wade

I have known Hannah since we were both bespectacled little fourth graders. Getting to photograph her and her future Mr. was such an honor.

hot cocoa, a sweet puppy running through the field chasing birds, and two people in love made for a wonderful sun filled evening.

have I said recently how much I love my job.

These two were so sweet and in love. Photographing them on this rainy day in Oregon was an honor.

All I have to say is – I love my job.

In the beginning of August we packed our bags and flew to wonderful happy Costa Rica, where these two sweet souls married one another.

It was a week filled with adventures and gorgeous sunsets.

We kayaked, swam in the biggest waves, saw sloths, woke up to monkeys chatting in the trees above our heads, and most importantly, celebrated Sarah and Daniels love.

These two were such troopers hiking to this lovely spot in the Oklahoma heat. We were surrounded by bugs and the threat of snakes, but they followed me along wherever I went. I love loved this shoot, so I had to share the images with ya’ll. Enjoy!

Sometimes before a shoot, I get jittery + nervous. This almost never happens when I know the person/persons I am shooting. So last Saturday, I had no anxiety, and just excitement as the couple are friends of J and I. Jake was one of Jordan’s roommates before we were married, and Meredith is his lovely soon to be wife. I knew Jake + Meredith would be fun to shoot, and they far exceeded my expectations. They were laughing the entire time and just had such pure joy in being together. I hardly had to pose them because they were adorably interacting the entire time. I couldn’t help but smile the rest of the evening –  I love being able to take photos of couples who are so happy and drawn to one another – it makes my heart swell seeing so much love in the world. Thanks for being adorably in love Jake + Meredith! Taking your photos was an honor.

This sweet couple are a part of a sweet family that is so dear to my heart. I love photographing this family, and have been able to be there for several big moments. Last year, my darling Abbey and I road tripped up to Chicago where I photographed Daniel asking Sarah to spend forever with her. This August, we will fly to Costa Rica and enjoy several days in paradise and I will have the honor of photographing their vows. Until then, here are some of their engagement photos.

Oh how I love babies. They are so sweet and holding them has a calming affect that I love. Bravery was so sweet and such a good model. I love this little family.

This family is not only beautiful, but also sweet. The kids were amazing throughout our whole shoot, and were real troopers as we made our way through the woods on a cold evening. I love my job. Especially when it introduces me to awesome people.

Britt + Jamie

Proposals, as I have said before, are some of my very favorite things to photograph. Last weekend we flew up to Boston to capture the engagement of some dear friends. Britt was the most bubbly, excited bride to be I had ever seen. All of my bride to be’s have been exceptionally happy, in-love, and excited, but none have bounced quite as much as Britt. It was adorable! Jamie had a blanket with music notes on it laid out with flowers, gifts, chocolates and champagne. It was set up on the steps of  Trinity Church in Copley square, and on a cold and rainy morning he led her there, got down on one knee, and proposed. It was such an honor being able to capture their big day. Love you guys! Here are just a few of the photos from their day.

Hefzi

Senior shoots are some of my favorite photos to take. Getting to know the person and making their personality, and who they are come through the photos is so fun. I had a great time with Hefzi – she is a lovely, tree climbing, music playing gal, and photographing her was a blast! Here is a sneak peak of her senior session.
