 a few weeks ago, nick & i drove i-84 through northern utah.
driving 80 mph down interstates always clears my head.
feeling the vastness of the land & sky is grounding, & leaves me feeling so alive.
these were shot a few miles from the outskirts of the great salt lake.
the air smelled like fresh rain & thick clouds gathered so low over the mountains, billowing & soft.
light rain made a shiny mist over everything & james blake sang joni mitchell on the radio.
it was lovely… there were horses. :)

nyc wedding photography

the morning of dennis & meghan’s wedding, the sun painted bright early morning light over midtown.
everyone was all smiles & so easy going & excited.

hundreds of laughs, sweet moments, & a few cups of coffee later, we drove to the new york botanical gardens for their ceremony + reception. the gardens are a magical oasis of nature & the glimmering sunshine that surrounded them as they saw each other for the first time was something out of a story book.
as we wandered around the garden grounds with meghan & dennis,
we were so inspired by all the flora, the brilliant colors, the light, & their love.

everything was just so beautiful & vibrant & their party was so much fun.
enjoy!

kansas city wedding photographers (219)

 amanda & sean were married in late may.

that morning, there was just enough rain to make everything perfectly green (& for good luck). :)
everything was beautiful. i love outdoor weddings!
the pinks & greens of their gorgeous flowers (by amanda’s mom) + the lovely rustic venue, stony point hall came together perfectly to embody the feeling & color tones of late spring.

seperately, these two are amazing people– but together, they have such chemistry!
there is so much sweetness & laughter in their love- it lights up the rooom!
& their party was epic. ;)

here is their story…

joe + katie are two truly lovely people & their wedding day was a perfect reflection of that.
they were married in mid-may on a gorgeous & serene farm in eastern missouri, just outside of joe’s hometown.
the land & farmhouse are rich with memories & history. the farmhouse feels like home- it’s filled with art, family heirlooms & photographs, nearly century old houseplants & arrowheads found on the property.

when we arrived in the morning, the glow of excitement was everywhere & the day just grew more beautiful every minute.

flower crowns –  tornado sirens – fireworks, katie + joe’s bohemian farm wedding was stunning… & so much fun.

here’s part one, can’t wait to share the rest tomorrow!

Your photos are beautiful. Love this set!

hello!

we just returned from a pretty awesome two weeks roadtripping a bit of the east coast.
our dear friend, aimee , traveled along with us… it was a lot of fun.

after driving through the smoky mountains of tenneesse, we spent a few days camping on the outer banks of north carolina. we pitched our tents in between sand dunes, spent a lot of time in the sun & sand, & woke up to ocean waves in the mornings.  then, we drove up to assateague island, in maryland. most of the drive to the island from north carolina was covered with tiny old towns on the sides of the road, fruit stands & abandoned buildings being taken over by nature. the island is home to almost 300 wild horses that roam around freely. the horses are so peaceful & majestic, with long & wild flowing manes & tails. i was amazed at their serenity.
we also made a stop in st. michael’s, maryland, a quaint & historic fishing village in the chesapeake bay.
we visited some of our most amazing friends in new jersey, celebrated both of our birthdays, & photographed a gorgeous wedding in the new york botanical gardens. (photos of that prettiness coming soon!!!)

i fell in love with nyc once again. i just love all of the humanity. the smell of hot asphalt, pizzerias, & the subway. a place that makes you feel so big & so small. so many energies combined, so much to see & feel. it always leaves me just in awe of humanity.

here are just a few of the photos:

alice in wonderland birthday party invitation

when jamie & zach told me that florence’s first birthday party was going alice in wonderland themed, i got super excited. i couldn’t wait to see what they were dreaming up– & it turned out so brilliantly!
these three are an amazing family. so vibrant, full of life & laughs, & they’re extremely creative.  so much fun.
i was totally enthralled with all their gorgeous artwork & cleverly designed party decor. their house is filled with little bits of magic everywhere you look!
everyone dressed the part & there was a delicious spread of snacks and cupcakes, an easter egg hunt, cupcake smash, & even a baby white rabbit!

happy un-birthday, florence!!
