To photogs – find what makes your couples glow + do that.
To the beautiful and amazing couples I have the honor of serving – the most authentic engagement sessions are created when you and your babe are already in your favorite setting. I love getting an inside look at what you two adore doing together. Whether that's hiking, walking along the beach, baking together or just touring a new city – when you're already doing something you love WITH the person you love, it shows. 💛 It's that simple.
Thanksgiving is almost a week later than it was last year. Maybe thats so we can have more time to understand what we are truly happy for. A lot of us get an extra day off , or a 4 day weekend, but some of us don't. A lot of us get to enjoy a great meal with people who love us, but some of us don't. To a lot of people it's just another cold day alone. These people may be right under your nose. Reach out and ask, you may be surprised . Help someone enjoy the holiday like you do. After all, it called Thanksgiving, not Thankshaving.
Digging up recent photos taken this year during the fall and I managed to notice this simple one. The shades of warm colors brought out a sense of peacefulness whenever I saw how the lake was calm that afternoon.
I spy with my little sky.
Few things happened this day.
We saw people meditating- while standing up- but listening to nature sounds through their headphones. 😅 A jogger stopped us to tell us about the time he missed the naked woman being photographed in the bushes because he was really trying to keep a steady running pace. And lastly, Liz and I enjoyed the last of fall! .
Portrait sessions are entirely different from weddings and I adore how still these sessions can be. There’s a cadence and way about them. It’s like a little dance between the photographer and subject. :) .
Ok so obviously this isn't actually #KaaterskillFalls like the location tag says. But I took this from the parking area. For those who aren't familiar, you have to walk along the road this direction to get to the path that leads to the falls. So close enough 😎

Today I learned that the tradition of tying tin cans to a married couple’s getaway originated during the Tudor period in England, where wedding guests would throw their shoes at the couples carriage as they left. If you hit the vehicle, it was considered good luck. I guess people got tired of losing their shoes, so it became tying tin cans instead. 🧐 Anyway, this pic of Jillian & Jake is cute!
I’ve been swooning over this session with these two soon-to-be-grooms for a while now!! Cannot WAIT until their wedding this winter!! ✨🥰

Vintage Car + Beautiful Couple = ALL AESTHETIC NEEDS MET. .
ALSO Funny story—I took this photo at a workshop in California and had no idea who the models would be until I got there. All of a sudden, I see a dude with long hair and I’m like hmmm he looks soooo familiar. Then he turns around and realize it’s TREY. Then a few minutes later I saw his wife MEG. I was in shock because I had met Meg + Trey in January in Utah and now they were somehow in California at the exact same time as me, at the exact same workshop. Such a small world!!! Some things are just meant to happen 🤗

We’ve been a little M I A and trying to be more consistent. We’re working on some new stuff, making plans & getting ready for the Holidays. In the midst of the busyness, here is a throwback image from this past Memorial Weekend 🇺🇸

Last night as I was shooting the sweetest wedding I thought to myself this couple is so freaking kind and smart and amazing. Before I did this work I had no idea there could be this many wonderful people in the world and they could find so many other wonderful people. So thank you all for restoring my faith in humanity one weekend at a time 🖤
