Fast forward to these two getting married. I knew from the day that I met Michael and Jennifer that this was going to be one of my favorite weddings to shoot. I loved how they envisioned their wedding from the start. Modern and minimalistic details. Using all greenery + plants instead of flowers. A gorgeous hotel with a unique detail of doing a ceremony around a pool. (The pool which later became the second dance floor.)

The day progressed so easily and before we knew it Tami was getting into her gown and heading to see John for the first look.Read More
Did I just witness a fairytale wedding?
Let me paint you this picture...It’s a warm, sunny Friday afternoon. I arrive at my destination, Quail Haven Farm. As I drive up this long windy driveway, I notice trees and flowers and turn to corner to see this wonderful barn with the friendliest horses popping their heads out to greet...
