Steven and Alexia’s wedding weekend has been an absolute whirlwind. From the welcome dinner through the reception, we couldn’t have asked for more spectacular venues to document the love between these two lovely humans. While this wedding was quite a long ways for most of us to travel, both the bride and groom have roots here, and witnessing their cultural traditions throughout the weekend was so cool (I wish I could say I learned some Greek over the past four days, but I indeed have not.) They were married in the church the groom’s grandfather helped built. The bride’s yiayia cried as she saw friends she hadn’t seen in over ten years. She also cried alongside the Alexia’s mother as they walked her to meet Steven outside of the church, her bouquet in his hand. It was a beautiful thing to document and be apart of. Their wedding day was a hot one, but we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting. Alexia and Steven, thank you for trusting me to do this job. Wishing you nothing but love and happiness as you start this next chapter of your lives. xo

2018 Year In Review

It’s hard to believe this is my third season on the books full-time. Freelancing is liberating, challenging, exciting and stressful all at the same time, and I am grateful to have had another year full of wonderful clients and travel. Thank you to everyone who has continued to support me and my business, and a special thanks to all of my second shooters for their time and help this season.
