What happens when a British and Aussie ex-pat decide to get married in the desert, well… it’s good things I can tell you that much. With the stage set at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club, Lindsey and Tim really pulled out all the stops in designing a setting where their international guests would not […]

Colorful Ace Hotel Wedding :: Lindsey + Tim

Sometimes when I look back through these photos, it feels like my mind is playing tricks on me.  I was here… this actually happened… what the heck… Still to this day, I cannot believe Betsy and Willem invited me across the country to experience such a wildly cool two days of excitement and revelry.  Getting […]

Camp Wedding at Dragonline Studio in Jamestown, RI :: Betsy + Willem

  I still think it’s pretty nuts that Carley, a documentary movie producer, and her now-husband Nicholas, all around sweetest dude I’ve ever met, invited me out to the ‘burbs of Chicago earlier this summer to photograph their entire wedding day using only… you read it right… a bag full of Kodak Funsaver single-use (disposable) […]

Chicago Summer Wedding Photographed Using Only Disposable Cameras :: Carley + Nicholas

A single lock of hair- from either one of these two would have more class, more… how do you say… je ne sais quoi… contained inside, than three of me combined. Champagne waterfalls and stuffed polar bears. You read that right, bears. This hilltop hidden hideaway, otherwise known to a select few as The Paramour […]

Punta Islita Costa Rica Wedding Photos :: JoJo + Garrett

This was an unreal day… this day was something so much more magnificent than anything I could have anticipated… this day was simply… beautiful. When Jacquie and Basil, two amazingly in-tune humans, with such style and grace, more kindness and wide grins than you can handle, decided to simply… get away in the name of […]

Race and Religious Wedding Photography New Orleans

New Orleans is a place, that for some reason I never really had visited.  And where every single person I met was just plain down to party. With half of Marybeth and Nathan’s wedding attendees coming from the area, you better believe that I was surrounded by the kindest, rowdiest, funniest group of individual personalities […]

Race & Religious Wedding Photos :: MaryBeth + Nathan in NOLA

When other photographers write you, asking you to shoot their wedding, its easy to get a little nervous worrying that you’ll live up to their standards. When said photographers then ask you to travel 16 hours and join them in Southern Spain for a once in a lifetime experience, its easy to blackout on your […]

Aguas de Villaharta Wedding in Cordoba, Spain :: Natalia + John

  So something happened a few weeks ago… something so unreal that when I found out I literally screamed like an 11-year-old battling puberty; an 11-year-old who happened to be holding a scolding hot cup of coffee.  Said coffee found it’s way straight to my lap after my body suddenly convulsed upon reading that I […]

Rangefinder Magazine’s 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2017

  Talk about a wild wedding day where the entire family… scratch that, the entire neighborhood comes together for one heck of an event! I should back up to begin with the location.  One in which I never knew existed. James’ family owns a house 3000ft above the Palm Springs/Coachella valley, within a (secret) neighborhood […]
