For many this was our first wedding back on St. John after being hit by hurricane Irma and Maria. It was such a special day. This feeling of comfort in knowing that we're all still here and everyone is ok, that we are making it through such a hard time and all is still beautiful. To see all of the other vendors, who I haven't seen since last wedding season, it was like back to school. We were all so happy to see each other but this time …
So an intelligent sweet Seattleite and a biker boy walk into med school. They fall in love, run off to Shi Shi beach, get engaged and decide to elope in St. Lucia with their closest friends and family and tie the knot on the beach in front of all of their favorite people. These two. They were so wonderful, so in love. So focused on each other, on what matters. On what this day was all about. It was beautiful and it was sweet and inspiring. Their love is pure and raw and these two truly have something like no other. It was such an honor to..
This trip you guys. All the feels. I was lucky enough to spend a few days with these two and their families and it was beyond fulfilling and fun and I had so many moments of perspective. Feeling the excitement with them, all the adventure, leaving Jamaica having made a lot of new friends. We boat tripped, cliff jumped, danced, had late night ..
I'm just going to apologize in advance for the overload of photos. This day was so incredibly meaningful and magical in so many ways. Andrea and Erin are the type of couple that bring nothing but love and it shows in the people that gathered together for their wedding day. This was just so special, between Andrea's emotional dance with her Dad, and the way Erin's girls reacted to her with her dress on, to one of their best friends officiating the..
Noelle and Joe. My people. These two. They live in Portland, Maine and they are an incredibly talented badass couple. Noelle had come down to St. John to photograph a wedding and while they were here we tied in an engagement session. We walked through the palm tree forest at Maho, along the water to Waterlemon Cay and up into the hills through the..
When I first talked to Julia she told me the story of her and Quintin. She told me about the way he makes her feel, the kind of love they have. She told me about how she was scared to do long distance with him when she went to grad school, and how he convinced her that it would work. How he drove 5 hours in a snow storm because she said she needed him. It makes me melt, these two make me melt. Their love is so evident, so very real. They decided to have their own private ceremony before their big celebration. They wanted it to be intimate, so they could focus on the commitment they were making to each other and I love them even more for it. I photographed their celebration day in the Berkshires and it was pure magic. With a bbq, their closest friends and family, and the dreamiest foggy field of golden rods you've ever..
THIS DAY. I wish I had a way to accurately describe the way this day felt. Suz and Seth are two of my oldest and best friends. So when Suz asked me to photograph their wedding day in Portugal and be in the wedding party, I was beyond excited. The feeling of getting to capture a best friend's wedding, getting to put their love into the light and to show them how you see them, how beautiful they are together and separately, there's no better feeling. They celebrated their wedding day in an old Portugese castle with a chapel inside. Every room where the wedding party prepped for the day, had french doors overlooking the ...
