Kicking off 2018 with this beautiful engagement session! I went to high school with these two love birds and holy crap, could they be any more photogenic?! To say I am excited for all my 2018 weddings is and understatement, I have some of the most wonderful couples that are trusting me to capture there big day! As you can imagine being a wedding photographer I attend A LOT of weddings each year. Some people may hate this, I LOVE IT! I basically consider myself the couples personal attendant/paparazzi for the day. So many of my couples become my friends and I love keeping in touch as they grow in their love and expand their families with little ones!

I love every part of weddings – helping the bride with any and all little details, getting to know the families & bridal parties, and yes – I may be the first one at the dessert table but with that said here are my top 3 favorite moments of any wedding day:

  1. Seeing the brides dress! I think the dress gives me so much insight to the brides personality and I find it really inspires the photos I take throughout the day (love me a cathedral veil, or an open back, or a beautiful long train)!
  2. The first look! Such an intimate moment between a couple and guess who has a front row seat – ME! I cry 80% of the time.
  3. The reception decor! Being married myself I know how much work goes into planning a wedding. I know how much time, effort, and money a couple puts into perfecting each detail. That is why the reception decor is one of my favorite things – seeing all their hard work pay off and getting to photograph all the unique details!

SO Cheers to 2018 and all the weddings to come! Enjoy this vibrant, love packed, gorgeous engagement session.
