Jessica & Eric | Boulder, Colorado

I have found the one, whom my soul loves. – Song of Solomon 3:4

She planned it all in just over a month. From the ideas, color palettes, layout, guest lists, and style. And possibly because she poured her heart and soul into making this union so over-the-top special, the sun beat down warm rays as her reward and it was the most beautiful fall day I’d ever seen! My sister-in-law isn’t only gorgeous, she’s creative, kind, loyal, and a hopeless romantic. I’m still smitten over all the details she designed and I’m still beaming over the fact that she asked me to photograph her wedding. But I was wildly excited about being able to work with some of my closest friends as well, and Jessica’s taste with Bare Root Flora‘s styling, made the flowers of this wedding one for the books!

Jessica & Eric, I wish you a lifetime of happiness, success, wealth, health, and love. It isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth it! ♥ you both!

Naomi {Sweet Violet Bride} - Oh. My. God. This is GORGEOUS!!

Kenny & Robin | Whitefish, Montana

I adore this couple so much. Which makes it hard to say anything more about them than I have already…but after photographing their beautiful Laguna Beach Engagements, I knew I was in for a treat when they decided to have a destination wedding in Montana. With Beargrass Gardens!

These two made my job pure joy! And their personal touches were over-the-top. Really. I’m still just smitten with it all!  The bride, hand-dipped all of the ombre pink napkins herself; her sister designed all the invitations and was also the on-site calligrapher as well as the Maid of Honor; the bride’s mother not only made most of the linens, she lent Robin her own, hand-made veil and added pieces of lace from her dress to Robin’s; and the fruit that lay underneath the cover of all those breathtaking flowers was collected from the bride’s parent’s home as foraged decor. As a Colorado girl, I was in awe at the beauty that surrounded their lake-side, mountain-view ceremony. But it was the people I loved even more. The happiest, kindest, and most genuine of guests I’ve ever encountered at a wedding were in attendance. And I…was in heaven every second of this day.

♥ Congratulations again! And lots of love, Robin & Kenny! ♥

I fell in love with photographing new mommies this year. And then I photographed my first maternity session on film. All film. I’m not exaggerating to say I nearly died of happiness.

Not even kidding. (I ♥ you Mandi!)

Honored to have Belle Lumiere feature this session on their blog this afternoon. Love this day.

Brian Whitt - Love this shoot!!

Organic Outdoor Boudoir

“Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.”

-Audrey Hepburn

This is just a portion of what I photographed on a perfectly warm summer day, full of pretty things and awesome friends. I have fallen in love with film, and even though I was pretty sure I would, this shoot solidified it for me! Much more to come, but for now, here’s a peak.

Special thanks to Connie for helping me execute this vision and for being such a good friend. And to my father in law who was kind enough to offer his backyard as our backdrop! wink wink

See more of this boudoir session over on Wedding Sparrow today.
