Wedding photographer, Starbucks enthusiast, and lover of all things romance and weddings.


I don’t 2nd shoot as much as I used to.  Time and availability are scarce when you have three kids and a full wedding schedule of your own but when my very good friend Ashley over at Ashley Fisher Photography asked for a hand I was happy to help. Working with my photographer friends is like having co workers again, and I LOVE it. It also gives me a chance to think just about creating and resetting and being an artist (and being an assistant- I gotta keep my girl laced in Diet Coke!)

In addition I just LOVED THIS FAMILY. I mean the bride is the only person more in love with Amazon Prime than I am. Its where she got the dress form for her dress. They got ready in their beautiful Downtown Loft apartment.

My family has had a lot of weddings in the last year, my brother, my dad and my mom all got married (not to each other though). And being the sister and daughter to three weddings means I got a first hand look at all the things that you don’t exactly think to put in […]

When a couple decides to get married, one of the first things that happen is we view our dreams of getting married through the lens of traditional wedding accouterment. I love that word. Anywho, we sit and decide we want all the wedding trappings and want to have all the wedding experiences that we have […]

However, setting up for […]

Its probably the most asked and usually the first question we hear Photographers hear this question usually as soon as we meet a couple and talk about their day.
