It's not often that when a photographer sends you "sneak peek" photos you cry and laugh and then cry and laugh some more. Lyynsey of Lion Lady Photography sent the best sneak peek album ever! I just couldn't wait! I had to share them.

I should start off by saying that Izzy + Porter were the greatest! The most laid back, care free, and silly couple to date. They trusted all of their vendors 100% and it was one of those creative freedom weddings where they just said "go with it!" The first time I met Izzy, she told me "Sorry Porter couldn't make it, he's playing D&D". I laughed and said "I like you guys already!" From there, Erika of The Greatest Adventure Weddings and I had a blast working on their design together.

A bright and cheery color palette mixed with a private waterfront venue made their day extra special. I even collaborated on their arbor with Izzy's Dad Dave. Their wedding is truly one for the books! See all of the magic below.

Thank you Izzy and Porter!

Matt + Keiko

A velvet wedding dress, two love birds, and one of the most epic dance parties of all time!

I worked alongside Danae of Perfectly Posh Events to bring Matt & Keiko's vision to life. If you ever have the chance to work with Danae, do it! She's a creative gem and someone I am lucky enough to call a friend-or, or in wedding industry language, someone who is a vendor AND a friend. 

We brought the outdoors, with vines trailing along Crimson Haze bistro lights, a romantic copper arch way, and greenery centerpieces. A quirky library book collection paired with globes, indoor plants, and textured blooms made guests feel as if they were in the house of a brilliant college professor. Sophisticated and organic all at the same time.

Be sure to check out these images from Carina Skrobecki. They are INCREDIBLE!

Fall in Love | Styled Shoot

It's my favorite time of year. Leaves are falling, pumpkin patches are over flowing, and the never ending season of hot coffee and scarves is upon us!  It is the perfect season for golden hour light, natural wind, and a romantic shoot in the great outdoors.

Erika of The Greatest Adventure Weddings and I put together a non-traditional pumpkin patch shoot with a really, really wonderful vendor team, and it turned out to be one of my favorite shoots of the year.

Lora + Max

Sometimes the best things come together unexpectedly, and at the last minute. Lora and Max contacted me shortly before their wedding explaining that their florist had cancelled and they were in need of a new florist. I am SO glad that they reached out. Lora and Max were both kind, grateful, and so in love. They shared intimate gifts with one another before their first look at the altar. Alex Lasota captured their day so beautifully. All of the small details, smiles and one of the cutest bridal party pups to date are below!

JB + SDP

A roof top courthouse ceremony followed by an intimate rehearsal dinner at Casco Antiguo started off Jesse and Sophia's epic wedding weekend. There are so many little details that made this my FAVORITE wedding of the year. Jesse and Sophia worked hard to bring their modern, artistic wedding to life. A stellar vendor team, hand painted artwork from the groom, unique decor touches (including a SUPER FUN photo booth back drop), and a custom made neon sign are just a few of the details that make this wedding so special. Thank you Jesse and Sophia for trusting me with your vision, and for letting me have so much artistic freedom with your florals.

If I could dream up my own wedding, it would be similar to Tessa & Evan's. Simple and sweet. Happy grins around every corner and the sweetest little details. While looking through their gallery, I teared up multiple times. Their wedding is the perfect mix of boho chic and PNW adventure. Not to mention an amazing color palette filled with warm, rich tones. The photos from Jacquelyn Portolese are INCREDIBLE. You can feel the love that Tessa, Evan and their families share, it is a really beautiful thing.
