An October Aspen Wedding


My best friend’s family has a lot of aspects – but the biggest one I think that is noticeable is how much love envelops every person and relationship, from close siblings to cousins and half siblings; hers is a family that just wants people to feel loved. She reached out to me about photographing a family members wedding in late 2022, and as soon as I chatted with Lena and Wyatt…


A Branford House Wedding in Groton, CT


Almost 18 months of planning went into this insanely beautiful wedding – and I got to be there every step of the way – as photographer, coordinator, florist, and friend. Kayla and I worked hand in hand, along with Tim’s frequent input, to put together their perfect small wedding at the Branford House in Groton, CT. Simple elegant florals that only highlighted the buildings beautiful architecture, as veritable feast, and an intimate get together that focused on who the couple was instead of just following tradition…

Tori & Steven’s CT Backyard Wedding


Our team member, Seran, photographed Steven and Tori at their intimate backyard wedding, held at Tori’s parent’s house, on a beautifully soft rainy day. The couple had planned for the probability of rain, so the clouds and drizzle didn’t even give them pause – and their closest friends and family met in a large white tent in a yard decorated with buckets on buckets of wildflowers that brightened up the day, and umbrellas for the wedding party.

Sharon & Anna’s 1754 House Micro-Wedding


My absolutely hands-down favorite thing about relocating to the East Coast from the Pacific Northwest has been the venues. I’m a total history nerd (in an abstract I love old things kind of way) and the buildings and venues here are the kind that make me sigh with excitement…


Kayla & Tim’s Connecticut Micro-Wedding


Kayla and Tim decided they wanted to have an intimate micro-wedding the week before their bigger wedding, at their Southbury home. So, on September 15, I met them at their gorgeous house tucked away in the woods on the edge of town – where I spent an hour with this stunning couple documenting their backyard wedding with their immediate families and closest friends. They had flowers from the bride’s grandmother, got ready in their own room, and legally exchanged vows in their yard, right next to their garden…


Portland, Oregon Wedding | Eveline + Uriah


I have only ever been a vendor at one wedding expo – but meeting couples like Eveline and Uriah made the experience worthwhile. We connected fairly quickly – and this incredibly sweet and quiet couple and I got along famously…


Newburg Oregon Vineyard Wedding | Elly + Jeremiah


Elly and Jeremiah got married on an overcast day in early fall in Oregon. It’s always “iffy” with Oregon weather, but this day the rain held off and instead gave us stunning clouds over the vineyard….
