Cristie + Josh

It’s hard to know where to begin with this one!  I am always so incredibly humbled when a bride and groom choose me to capture their love story, but this couple truly went above and beyond!  You have undoubtedly seen them on the blog before.  This beautiful couple has had me capture every moment from engagement, to the boudoir photos that were Josh’s wedding gift, to their incredible “I do’s” in paradise.  I know that I’m not just that person there with a camera… I’m there to capture the moments that they and their loved ones are going to look back on for decades to come.  The moments that bring them right back to that time, or that amaze their grandchildren, or that move their own children to tears when they think about how that moment is truly how it all began.  I always say it, but truly, I have the best job in the world!  To be asked to get on a plane and bring a passport to document all of this is absolutely the greatest honor and compliment any photographer can have.  Cristie and Josh are two of the most amazing people I know.  Planning the wedding may have been crazy, picking the dress and all the details may have been overwhelming at times, but there was always one thing that was never a second thought…. the reason they were going through all the trouble.  These two truly wanted an experience where the people that love them so incredibly much could come together as one big family and share in the entire ride with them, and share in the ride we all did!!!!  I won’t ruin any surprises, but you will quickly see by the end of the post what a fun, loving and carefree couple Cristie and Josh are.  I love their entire approach to their love story and their lives.  They truly know what it’s all about.  So! Here are some of my absolute favs!!!!

What an amazing day!!!!  Is this group not the most fun?!?!? It’s so easy to get caught up in details and I love that Cristie and Josh never let anything stop them from being themselves and enjoying every moment of their day…. not even a little salt water or chlorine in the wedding dress!  Congratulations, Cristie and Josh!  Much love, health and happiness to you both!  THANK YOU for allowing me to be by your side through everything! xoxo

A Seaside Love Story!

Well…. it took dozens of hours in post production work, but I FINALLY finished editing the most gorgeous wedding!  Set in Jamaica, this was by far one of the most stunning weddings I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  What made this more special was the bride and the groom.  Together this couple has taught me the meaning of friendship, love and loyalty.  I am proud to say that they will forever be my very best friends.  Whether the bride knows it or not, she has touched my life in ways I cannot describe.  She has been there for me in my most difficult moments, and she’s been there to celebrate every success.  Without her love, support, encouragement and friendship I don’t know where I’d be today.  Photographing this wedding was just the beginning of showing my thanks to this couple for being amazing friends to me.  I thank them both from the bottom of my heart for this opportunity to share my gift with them.  This post has a lot more photos than I normally include, but it was just too hard to choose!  There were so many special moments!  I hope you enjoy my favs as much as I enjoyed taking them!  Here we go!!!

Let’s start with some beautiful Jamaican details…..

 

 

And next, some of my favorites of my stunning best friend!  One of the most gorgeous brides I’ve seen, she just lit up the entire island!!!

And next…. the gorgeous ceremony, and all of the details!  Filled with nothing but light, love, loyalty and friendship….

Next it’s on to some beautiful details and time with the bride and groom to just capture some moments with each other…..

And before we move onto the reception, and all the fun there was to be had….. How AWESOME are these fun bridesmaids?!?!?!?

And next up? Reception details and FUN!!!!!  This first one, is one of my favorites I’ve EVER taken in my entire photography career…..

And finally….. no wedding is complete without all of the dress details…. Check out this stunning dress the bride said yes to!

I know that I just can’t say it enough….. I’m just so humbled whenever someone puts the way they are going to remember one of the most important days of their lives in my hands.  I am so blessed to be able to share my gift with so many people…. including best friends and the ones I love dearly.  I can’t wait to see what more life has to bring these two!  I can’t wait to be there to capture all the special moments ahead.  THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS to Dawn and Matt Kollmorgan.  You both are amazing people, and I am so blessed to call you my friends! Love you always!!! xoxo
