After tying the knot last year in a intimate, backyard ceremony - these two were finally able to have a big celebration with their family & friends! This day was so prefect & totally worth the wait! 

It was beautiful to see the small group gather in support of this couple. Amy & Josh are each so kind-hearted – together I know they will build a life full of love & support for one another. This wedding day was so honest & lovely. I can’t wait to photograph the big party next year!

To sum up Erin & Andrew’s wedding day in three words… I think it would have to be… family, fun, and hot. These two were married on a hot & humid day in July, but the heat did not keep anyone from having fun & celebrating these two to the fullest. On their day, I […]

I wish I could shoot this wedding day over & over again. There was fun and warmth and honesty everywhere I looked. I think couples often feel pressure to plan and have things a certain way on a wedding day. I give Robert & Emily a lot of props for not letting any of that […]
