keri + carter / whispering oaks wedding

whispering oaks outdoor mountain wedding moab utah

whispering oaks wedding

keri & carter's outdoor mountain wedding at whispering oaks ranch was so incredibly fun. these two are some of the kindest and most welcoming people i've ever met, and they definitely know how to have a good time. keri is a florist and has a keen eye for gorgeous little details (check out the rose petal lined aisle!), so the pavilion looked amazing. their pup was there, too, sneaking his way next to them during the ceremony. i love dogs, so any time a couple brings their dog to a session or a wedding, you can be sure you're going to end up with a lot of photos of them!

there was champagne and delicious food (all cooked in dutch ovens!), some tears and a lot of laughter, and oh the dancing. that dance floor was packed from the moment their friends and family could get themselves out there. keri and her friends even did a little choreographed number to madonna. my cheeks were hurting from smiling the entire evening, so needless to say, their day was perfect. cheers to you both, i wish you a lifetime of even more laughter and dancing, good runs and tight lines. :) congratulations!

whispering oaks wedding

everything about andrew and ashley's day i loved. they brought their adorable pup, bowser, all the way from new york city to join them at whispering oaks ranch this summer. there was no stress, the dancing was amazing, and her dress was maybe my favorite from the entire season. a friend of theirs even brought a drone so they could get some cool aerial shots of the entire crew! i love seeing how different each couple's day is, and theirs was entirely their own. congratulations andrew & ashley! i hope the bagel business is good in nyc. :)

brooke + milo / whispering oaks wedding

whispering oaks moab utah outdoor mountain wedding

whispering oaks wedding

even though it's not the best business practice to blog so infrequently, i have loved the chance to relive these weddings a few months later. brooke + milo's wedding at whispering oaks ranch here in the la sal mountains above moab, utah was nothing short of spectacular. i have spent quite a lot of time up at whispering oaks photographing weddings and theirs was the first that had the ceremony set up on the west side of the pavilion, with a gorgeous floral teepee as their altar. brooke didn't want any of the "getting ready" shots because she'd rather i captured more of the reception (you'll see why in a minute) so the first time i saw her that day was when she was walking down the aisle. spoiler alert: i'm a huge sucker for flowers, so when i saw her wearing a flower crown and carrying a desert-hued bouquet, i was beyond excited!

brooke and milo have a well-crafted, artistic eye for detail. i loved the natural yet elegant feel of their reception. you see, milo is a chef, and he created the menu for their entire wedding, so the dinner and sharing of great conversation and even better food was something you could tell every single guest was looking forward to. once i saw the spread of food, i could see why. their cocktail hour included a meat and cheese platter, two tables long (including cheetos, of course!). with the mountains glowing in the distance, it was the perfect setting for a cocktail to celebrate these two incredible humans. after hors d'oeuvres, guests were seated and bottles of champagne were passed around to each table. milo shared some loving words of gratitude and then the bottles started to pop - i must say, there are few sounds more celebratory than a room full of laughter and champagne bottles being opened. that definitely set the tone for the rest of the evening. their friends and family dined on slow-roasted lamb and whole baby potatoes cooked in the fat drippings, salmon and a gorgeous heirloom tomato salad...i could go on and on and on. i don't typically post so many photos of the food, but this was an exception for sure. 

the night ended with the best dance party i had seen in a very long time (including a choreographed dance by brooke and her dad!), a testament to how thrilled everyone was to celebrate these two. there was incredible cake of course, and a gorgeous star-filled sky to top it all off. thank you, brooke and milo, for being so kind and generous. and congratulations!!!

kristina + andy / allen hill farm wedding

connecticut barn wedding

allen hill farm wedding

kristina and i met in alaska 2 1/2 years ago.

yep. you heard that right. in a hotel lobby in fairbanks, to be precise. see, i sometimes guide hiking and backpacking trips in places like moab (home), death valley, and alaska. kristina was on my very first trip up north, and from our first long drive up the haul road, when we sat near each other and chatted about relationships, crossfit, and getting out of our comfort zones, we became fast friends. i immediately admired her boldness and determination to get out and explore on her own. signing up for a 10 day camping trip, in alaska, with a group of strangers, is no easy feat. but she was in and i am so, so glad our paths crossed! 

fast forward to the spring of 2017 when i got a message from kristina asking me if she could fly me out to connecticut to shoot her wedding. um...YES! i'd take any excuse to visit with her again, meet her soon-to-be hubby, and it's always such an incredible honor to be asked to shoot another photographer's wedding. i was warmly welcomed into their incredibly giving group of family and friends, spending the days leading up to their big day sharing stories and glasses of wine on their porch, eating really tasty BBQ, and even a fun partner workout at kristina's crossfit gym. :)

i knew the location was going to be beautiful, but i wasn't prepared for how incredible the barn would be where the reception was set to be held, or the sunset, or the way the night would end. the rain came down hard the morning of their big day. a stressful situation, no doubt, but i never worry about the weather. the staff of allen hill farm and kristina and andy's wedding planner were wonderful and wise in waiting the storm out. the skies cleared perfectly just as the ceremony was set to begin and everything from then on was flawless. great food, hilarious and loving speeches from close family, and tons of laughter. the party went on into the evening and finished with surprise fireworks off in the distance. i felt so privileged to be there to witness these two share their love for each other in front of their people, and i can only hope it won't be 2 1/2 years before we all see each other again. thank you, kristina + andy, for everything. 

p.s. yes i do travel for weddings!

max + jessie / whispering oaks wedding

whispering oaks moab utah outdoor wedding

whispering oaks wedding

max and jesse are two incredible humans. i was lucky to get to photograph their wedding at whispering oaks ranch here in the la sal mountains just outside of moab, utah this past summer. i loved all the little details of their wedding: the two of them are badass, competitive ski mountaineers, so they named each of their guests' tables after mountains they'd summited together; and jesse wore the same dress her mother, and her grandmother (!), were married in (it was incredibly elegant).. 

there was good food, great wine, lots of dancing, and even more laughter. all the makings of a fabulous wedding. :) i know it's been months now, but cheers to you two and all the adventures (and summits) yet to come! xo

mark + flora / red cliffs lodge wedding

mark & flora's day was a total dream. tons of sunshine, a gorgeous ceremony, a field of horses to wander around in, and s'mores to top it all off! i was so excited to meet them for coffee just days before their big day, and as soon as we all sat down i knew this was going to be a fun (and beautiful!) wedding. these two are surrounded by an incredibly loving and supportive group of friends and family, one of flora's friends even played the guitar and sang a beautiful song for their first dance. i just felt so lucky to be there. :)

cheers and all my best to you both!

p.s. if you have the opportunity to finish off your wedding with a bonfire and s'mores bar, do it! it was so much fun!

sara + joe // red cliffs wedding in moab, utah

red cliffs lodge moab utah outdoor wedding

ahh this wedding was the best! from sara's dress to the guys' bow ties, to that amazing cake(!), all the little details were beautiful. sara and joe are the kinds of people you meet and immediately feel welcomed by. you can tell that they would do anything for their friends and family, and for each other. i felt really, really lucky to get to spend their wedding day with them to document all the adventures of the day. :)

the rain decided to show it's face right around the time these two were set to be hitched, but did anyone mind? nope. everyone just went with the flow, the ceremony site was quickly moved to a covered patio with a beautiful view, and the day went on perfectly. i think this little hiccup speaks volumes about these two and the tribe surrounding them - they were there to celebrate the love between sara & joe, and nothing was going to stop that. 

i can't thank you two enough for inviting me into your lives! can't wait to see you again soon. :)

doug + shannon // canyonlands national park adventure wedding

it's not hard to see why these might be some of my favorite wedding photos EVER! weather can be a big concern on wedding days, and i completely get it - you do all of this planning for one day and really the only thing out of your control is what mother nature has in store for you. when we arrived up at the island in the sky district of canyonlands national park we could see a few clouds gathering off in the distance and a bit of a breeze was blowing, but nothing too threatening... 

after the ceremony the clouds darkened, but stayed a safe distance away. then came the lightning, then the rainbow (!), and all the while it was a calm and beautiful 70 degrees on the cliff edge where these two were married. i loved that they brought a few items that were special to them, and that they picked up a gluten free cupcake from crystal's cakes & cones and shared it as the sun was dipping below the horizon.

i always have such a difficult time wrapping up a shoot in the evening because i love capturing the light as it fades away, going from that orange glow to the magic blue hour, and just as i was thinking we were about finished, the rain started to sprinkle and we called it a (perfect) night.

cheers to doug and shannon - here's to a lifetime of even more adventures together!

j + l // wedding in arches national park

a gorgeous sunrise, a national park, and not another person around as far as the eye can see? needless to say, i loved this morning with justin, lora, and their families. lora and i were chatting as we were walking to one of the arches, and at one point she turned to me and said, "i just wanted to hike on my wedding day," and that's exactly what we did. :) it is always an honor to witness a couple sharing their love for each other in front of their nearest and dearest, especially in a place as special as this, and this morning was no exception. congratulations you two!

a + d // elopement in arches national park

these two were so much fun! i love when couples are up for anything, and willing to walk a little further or hike a little higher to explore new places. not to mention the incredible props they brought along! scroll down near the end to see. :) amy and david were so relaxed and obviously gushing over the fact that they had just eloped the day before (and surprised their friends!), so it was a breeze to photograph them. :) thank you both for playing outside in the sunshine with me!

r + r // outdoor engagements

this was a total dream session. when i received rebecca's e-mail all i saw were two key phrases: "engagement session" and "monument valley". done and done. i love shooting outside, especially in natural settings, and monument valley is one of the most iconic landscapes in the desert southwest. not to mention i always love a good drive. :) these two were a ton of fun, and so easy to photograph! their laughter was contagious and their love for each other was so beautiful to capture. thank you so much rebecca and ryan! i really hope to see you guys soon. xo

p.s. the little bakeshop in nyc was just as amazing as you said it'd be. ;)

l + c // outdoor wedding

i don't know how i keep getting so lucky, but these two were the absolute best! a stunning, friendly, welcoming couple; an outdoor ceremony (my favorite); and a simple evening focused on celebrating their love with their closest family and friends. needless to say, everyone was incredible. they were staying at whispering oaks in the la sals outside of moab, so a spot overlooking castle valley was definitely in order. i loved their day, and i could not get over her dress! these two are the real deal. :) lots of love to you guys! xo
