tips for brides




And thanks for stopping by! My work reflects my desire to add some whimsy, enchantment and beauty to the world. It is my way of sharing a bit of my heart. I love the laughter and smiles, but I am also drawn to the quiet, intimate moments that are filled with emotion. My goal is to capture the essence of your wedding day, all the little things that come together to paint the big picture. 

welcome to my blog...

This stunning Lake Tahoe wedding was what got me /really/ hooked on shooting weddings.


When I finished up the incredible Photographing Weddings workshop with Bre Thurston, she suggested I reach out to Anita Martin Photography to see if she needed a second shooter. Anita told me she needed a second shooter for a Lake Tahoe wedding in September, and I jumped on the chance! I already posted a little about our weekend up there here, but I have been dying to share the photos from the wedding with you. The couple was so down to earth and, as a bonus, they were pretty much model gorgeous too! The mountains and trees made a beautiful backdrop for the bridal portraits, and the bride’s veil was amazing!  I loved how open the bride was with her emotions and I definitely got a little teary eyed myself watching the reactions to the speeches. Everything was so relaxed and there was so much love and happiness throughout the day. It really was a perfect wedding.

These two little girls were with all the bridesmaids getting ready and I just had to snap their photos! Too cute!
