One of those moments.

I’m in awe of my job nearly every day, but there are some days, some moments, when I’m just completely dumbstruck but the awesomeness that I get to be privy to.

Like this.


As I’m editing Stephanie & Mike’s wedding as fast as I can, this photo came up on my screen and I welled up with tears.

Mike is just about to kiss his bride, to be pronounced husband & wife, and he knows it. He’s excited and proud and maybe still a touch nervous, but mostly excited and overjoyed. And while I was quite a bit away, he looked up and right into the camera and shared it with me.

It’s an amazing feeling to experience that trust and comfort in one of life’s larger moments. And I got to be there. Completely dumbfounding.

Emily & Adam: A Queer Elopement at Wells Reserve at Laudholm

Emily and Adam had the most perfect early spring queer elopement at Wells Reserve at Laudholm. Just a week earlier we’d had a foot of snow, but it melted away just in time for this beautiful ceremony. Eloping at Wells Reserve at Laudholm is a great way to celebrate your love with your partner in a beautiful and secluded setting.
