How did Christine and Steve pick their wedding date? They waited for an inspired moment.

These two got engaged 7 years ago and knew that they would tie the knot when something spoke to them. They planned a trip to visit New York from their home in the UK, and only after buying the plane tickets did they decide that they’d love to elope at City Hall. They didn’t tell a soul (until afterwards of course), and I was their legal witness.

Christine and Steve, you are the reason that I love my job so much. To be invited into such an intimate experience is truly an honor, and I don’t take it lightly that you trusted me not only to photograph your wedding but to insert my person into your experience. The love between you two is so evident, and I’m thrilled to present you with this sneak peek from your New York City elopement. Enjoy!

Amanda and Derek are rock stars. Actually.

While this may be the literal truth, these two are also rock stars in the figurative sense. They have an uncapped passion for life, they are edgy without being unapproachable, and they strike the perfect balance between being awesomely cool and so completely warm.

Amanda and Derek, I can’t thank you enough for welcoming me into your world on your wedding day. I loved that you two were so present, so busy having fun, and so passionately in the moment. It was refreshing how much freedom you gave me and how much you trusted me with your memories. Your ability to let go and have a blast is matched only by the grounded and deeply rooted love and respect you clearly have for each other. You’re inspiring!

Your wedding was a blast, and I’m excited to send along this sneak peek of photos. Enjoy!

Emily and Dylan, I am at a loss for words…. but I’ll try.

Every experience I’ve had with you two has been easy and a pleasure. You’ve been welcoming, trusting, enthusiastic, and thoughtful. Your wedding day flowed with ease and joy because you two let it happen, stayed present, enjoyed every moment for what it was. You made your wedding day exceptional.

When I think of you two as a couple, I can’t imagine you not being together. I know that when you met, you both instantly knew that something special was beginning, and I can absolutely see why. You light each other up, and it seems almost as if you have no other choice but to actively love each other.

When I set foot on Waveny Park and looked up ahead at the Waveny House, I knew I wasn’t in New York City anymore. “Wow,” I thought. The house and its surroundings couldn’t be more picturesque, and it also happened to be a gorgeous day outside.

Little did I know that the venue wouldn’t be the most beautiful thing that I would photograph that day. Kristen and Alex, quite simply, have an energy that is stunningly warm and radiant, and they absolutely blew me away.

Kristen and Alex, thank you for floating through your wedding day on a cloud of joy and goodness. It made my job an absolute pleasure, and I’m so grateful that I was able to experience and photograph your glorious day. Enjoy this sneak peek from your wedding gallery!

YAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!! Camille and Danny are married!!!!!

I felt I needed to start this post with some sort of exclamation because that’s what Camille and Danny require and inspire. These two high school sweethearts are like a walking party that everyone is invited to. They have an infectious love for life that is contagious while still being grounded.

Camille and Danny, I’m simply obsessed with you. I know you wanted your wedding to be full of fun, dancing, and celebration, and it absolutely was! But at the core of everything was a calm and easy energy that almost seemed to be whispering “Yup. This is right. This is just how it is meant to be.” You two work because you balance each other, and you bring out the parts in each other that may not be directly on the surface. Your connection is undeniable, and you make everyone around you feel like an insider.

Thank you for inviting me into your lives and for making me feel so welcome and valued. I am so happy for you two!!
