the glen venue wedding photographyI’ve spent some time down South in the past, but not too much time. This trip, this one was different. Claire and I decided to spend a week in Florida with our good friends Derrek and Jenn (and their insanely hip son Liam) before heading to Glen St Mary later that week to document a wedding. On this trip, we started to really grow fond of Southern culture – the boiled peanuts, the BBQ (while good, it’s not Texas let’s be real), the insanely kind people, alligators, and above all valuing the time hanging out with close friends. At the end of our time together, Liam proclaimed we were now apart of his family, and that their guest bedroom was now ours whenever we wanted. Score.

Our trip started strong and ended even stronger.

We first met Michelle and John over a year ago in Iceland. We were there for our inaugural wedding in a country which has now become a photographers Mecca (and for very good reason), and happened to see one of our photographer acquaintances Ben Sasso was also in town. That discovery of proximity turned into a mini-adventure to meet up with Ben, who just so happened to bring his best friends Michelle and John along with him. We decided to meet over lunch which led us to the aptly-named Noodle Station in downtown Reykjavik. We all became fast friends over the spiciest noodles known to mankind. We spoke about traveling, made some jokes, and soon parted ways. A few days after meeting them, Claire and I holed up at Hotel Budir in the middle-of-nowhere, I decided to check Instagram with the eerily-fast hotel WiFi. The first photo in my feed? John, on one knee, proposing to Michelle overlooking a sea of glaciers in Iceland. Well played.

Here are a few of my favorite images from our time in the South.

A few of my favorite images from a random cornfield in the middle-of-nowhere Pennsylvania. These two went all out for their engagement shoot; I’m beyond excited to see what they come up with next year for their wedding.

So BEAUTIFUL. . . I LOVE these pictures!!!

Connecticut in the summer is seriously amazing, so Claire and I decided to drive up early to spend some time at a local bed and breakfast relaxing before Kate and Kyle’s wedding. The morning after the wedding, we hopped on the first flight from Boston to Iceland to document another great wedding, and then decided to stay in Boston after getting back with our talented photographer friend Sarah Der. I remember the week going by incredibly fast but in those seven days we we drove 1,500 miles, hopped on a few planes, got lost twice, made lots of new friends, and witnessed some incredible couples who truly loved the shit out of one another. It was a great week.

Here are a few of my favorites images from Kate and Kyle’s wedding in Pomfret, CT. These two are tops.

Beautiful Pat!

An amazing summer day spent wandering around Williamsburg with two of the nicest people. I couldn’t really ask for more. But when I show up to getting ready and the bride looks like this and then we talk about our respective dogs for an hour? Yeah, that sealed the deal for me. These two are the best.

Here’s a small snippet into Sophia and Zach’s super intimate Brooklyn wedding.

I absolutely love working with other creatives, so naturally when Hailee and Jake were in town for a few days we took full advantage of it. They’re super talented photographers themselves who are getting married next year amongst some avocado trees in California. Really stoked to document everything for these two; they’re basically models – well, Jake was. Long story.

These photos capture the essence of your love…just beautiful.

Leah and Mikey are kind hearted people from San Francisco who threw one hell of a destination wedding at Los Poblanos Inn, a working lavender farm in New Mexico. Claire and I were lucky enough to spent the weekend with them, their family, and closest friends. We rode bikes together in one-hundred degree heat through Albuquerque in search of the best beer, we ate from food trucks together, and we braved sideways rain on their wedding day together. We left New Mexico with some great memories and new friends.

Here’s a little of what happened.
