Melissa and Sam wed on one of the nicest summer days we’ve had in a while. It doesn’t hurt that everything else about their wedding day was top notch. From Laurel and Elm events, to Kate Farley killing it on the floral game, to the John James Audubon Center, everything was super solid and we’re thrilled to have been apart of this.
Many thanks as always to my fiancee Claire Hudson for shooting with me (as always). You’re the best.
Not even a torrential downpour the moment Gwen walked down the aisle could stop these two. A seriously incredible wedding filled with the most down-to-earth people ever. Here’s a little of what happened when Gwen and Dan celebrated their love on a farm in New Jersey.

I could go on about how down to earth and great Miriam and Kevin are, but honestly, we mostly talked about our dogs during this one. I mean how can you not when their dog Baxter is a splitting image of our dog Stamps? Dogs at weddings and engagement shoots never gets old for me and being so lucky to shoot a couple that looks like this will also never get old.
It’s no surprise that Claire and I love California. On this specific trip, we also happened to document an amazing elopement in Lake Tahoe as well as Lauren and Scott’s engagement in Big Sur. It was a crazy busy week filled with lots of mountain driving (sorry Claire), adventures, amazing beer, and even better company. One piece of advice to those in Big Sur? Stay at Glen Oaks. It was incredible.
Alina and Doguhan eloped amongst their family and close friends at two private residences, one in Big Sur, and one in the Carmel Valley. Both homes required navigating twisty uphill one way roads (with two lanes of traffic, mind you), but the views from each were incredible. I can still smell both the ocean and the crisp air from this trip and can’t wait to go back.
Thank you both so much for allowing us this tiny glimpse into your life.

Sarah and Chris are two of the coolest people, ever. Their stylish, laid-back wedding was entirely too much fun for Claire and I and we’re super excited we now get to call these two friends.
