A Wedding - The Haseltine Estate

Katie and Brett's wedding was a beautiful day. It was so fun to witness Brett tentatively dotting i's and crossing t's the day of the wedding, allowing Katie to get ready with her friends and family. Both so involved in the wedding planning from the day I met them, there is no doubt that these two are partners and best friends. Congratulations to you both on a beautiful marriage. 

Thank you to Andrew Eichenlaub for helping document Katie and Brett's special day. 

Table2Farm at Three Creeks Produce

My friend Jamie Davis, a culinary prodigy, head chef at Birdhouse Friend Chicken, and Cafe Berlin, put together a special event for foodies and farmers alike. His most recent popup, Table2Farm, brought the farm table, the carefully prepared ingredients, and the culinary tools to the source of many ingredients found in the delicious food at Cafe B; Three Creeks Produce in Boone County, Mo. 

Decorated with fresh cut flowers from Three Creeks, the wine glasses were filled with each new course presented to the table.  The Table2Farm dinner lasted well after the sun went down.

It was so much fun to bring a handful of my passions together while documenting this event, as well as enjoy watching the success of my friends. 

A Wedding -- Married In Upstate New York

Nina and Josh's families were so kind, hospitable and fun on their wedding day. Everyone was at ease and enjoying the day for what it was, a celebration.

It was a special treat to be able to watch Nina's grandmother, aunts and cousins all help put beautiful, traditional sarees on any of Nina's girlfriends that wanted one. These beautiful fabrics were woven with gold and glittered in the sun. 

Thank you to Christian Gideon for asking me to work alongside you again. We really know how to knock a wedding out of the park. 

Bridal Portraits -- Southern Missouri

Molly had a beautiful backyard wedding in Missouri, complete with lights hanging from the trees and a dance floor in the middle of the yard, under the sky. Before all of the festivities, the bridal shower, the rehearsal dinner and the toasts, Molly asked me to take bridal portraits of her in her mother's wedding dress. 

We kept the surprise from her mom and took the photos while she was running errands. I only wish I could see the surprise on her face when she sees her daughter wearing her very own wedding dress in the state they both hold so close to their hearts. This dress is what timeless fashion looks like and Molly makes it look even better with her simple and elegant style.

 

An Engagement -- May in New York

For all of the jitters Jason and Caitlin may have had starting their session, the more they looked into each others eyes, the more comfortable they became. They met each other by doing the exact same thing.

Jason and Caitlin's relationship began when they found each other on the subway and looked into each others eyes. They are great reminder that speaking is not always the most powerful form of communication -- sometimes a little eye contact is far more powerful. 

A Wedding -- Wisconsin Summer Love

Earlier this year, when it was warm and there was ice in our coffee orders, I got to work alongside the extremely talented Christian Gideon once more. This beautiful couple celebrated their marriage in the heart of Madison, Wis. It was a joy. 

I love weddings. Everyone reveling in love and happiness, looking their best and smiling is an infectious energy. Being surrounded by this excitement, I like to try and capture the in-between moments.  Aimee and Chase made it easy. Congratulations, again!
