about a year and a half ago emily and morgan got married. i don’t know what took me so long to share this destination wedding. getting to spend the weekend up in the woods with these cats was so worth it and getting to capture their emotions as they pledged their love to each other was always going to be one for the books.

the lighting next the the lake was next level and i’ve been thirsting for some more ever since.

thanks for having me. it was a riot.
and it’ll forever have been an honor to have been a part of your day.

the desert has some of the best light and the light in joshua tree on this day did not disappoint. from the start everything was perfectly poised and ready to be captured. the setting, the coolest of people, the hearts of their sleeves.
and on this night, the desert had some of the best people. this intimate joshua tree wedding was a photographers dream….just sit back, photograph, and let the art flow.

thank you krystal and josh for inviting me into your lives, for letting me become one of your friends, and for letting me tell your story in all of its artistry.

here is just the tiniest of previews for your eyes. being a wedding photographer gives me the most amazing opportunity to share some of the most important days with people from around the world, and being a destination wedding photographer gives me the chance to run around the whole world with these people.
thank you so much, to Shelly and Jae for giving me the trust to fly me across the country to be a part of their wedding day in New Jersey. after their new york engagement session I knew they were two Grade-A people and that it was going to be an honor to be a part of their day.

keep an eye on this blog for the gull post in the coming months after i get a chance to sift through the mountain of photos we made together.

Lauren and Chris’s campground wedding was so fun to be a part of. Their guests celebrated with them for a whole weekend, summer camp style — WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER style — with pool parties, bbq, camp fires, jam sessions and wedding cake. I’m so thrilled I was invited to be a part of their day. Theyre two people that anyone would be lucky to know.
Here’s at least 5 photos from my time i got to spend with them capturing their wedding day story. Peep them below or you’ll feel sorry you missed out!
