I’m so incredibly excited for News Years 2019. Why? Because these two cuties are getting hitched! It’s going to be the party of the year, based on the description Kristin has given me for their venue, decor, and of course, the awesomeness of the couple!

Kristin and Mitchell are great, down-t0-earth people who have a need for excitement and adventure. The love they share revolves around laughter and acceptance of each other as is.

We met last week in time for a beautiful sunset and had a blast exploring Hyland Park Reserve, cheer-sing with champagne and date balloons in tow. Leave a comment for these two loves!

Dusty & Chelsea are planning their wedding for late December in the Dominican Republic. To contrast the lush, beautiful weather we are likely to encounter there, they opted for a winter engagement session. Bauhaus Brew Labs was gracious enough to let us use their space and it’s so beautiful!  Of course, the best part was enjoying a fresh beer post-shoot!

Bonus points to anyone who can pronounce “Gemutlichkeit”. We all tried and miserably failed, ha!

 

 

This wedding was the one I looked forward to all year long. About a year and a half ago, I had the honor of photographing Rebi & Dave’s Day Block Event Center wedding and I found out these people are the good ones. As in, salt of the Earth, classy (check out Jean’s mother-of-the-bride outfit – pure class!), just downright good people. When I was contacted regarding the vow renewal of Avi & Jean, I was elated at the opportunity to spend another lovely day with them.

Avi & Jean were married 37 years ago in a similar, scaled back ceremony in her father’s backyard. This time around, Jean wanted a beautiful gown, fresh floral arrangements galore and to be surrounded by their family and closest friends. Here is what I witnessed throughout the day; a deep, solid connection between two people who have genuine respect and appreciation for one another. Every wedding has love, but this one had a different feel. One earned through years of hard work at keeping the love alive. It was truly beautiful and I’m grateful to have witnessed the day.

Cheer to another 37 years, Avi & Jean!
