Brittney & Grant | Charleston Wedding Photography

Brittney and Grant came to Charleston to celebrate their anniversary with a Lowcountry vacation, and I was thrilled when they asked me to do an anniversary portrait session with them! Both Nashville natives, they have a shared love of good wine (they honeymooned in Napa), bunnies, and married life. We had a great time gallivanting around Charleston - we even met new friends outside of the historic German Friendly Society and made a sweet mess with some Thimblepress confetti! I loved shooting these two, and wish them many fabulous anniversaries to come!

Jaron & Andi | San Francisco Wedding Photography

It's always so much fun to shoot with friends, and Jaron (who got me on a helicopter) and Andi (his gorgeous bride-to-be) were no exception! These images are some of my most favorite to date. It's not often that I have couples that want to shoot their engagement session during sunrise (this is the second one, ever). A little back story: we were actually scheduled to shoot their engagement photos the day before but had to be a bit more flexible due to missed flight connections. So we decided - a sunrise session it would be. After enjoying the sunrise over at Bernal Heights Hill, we stopped by a few other favorite locations (Ghirardelli Square) and decided to head home to spend some QT with their adorable fur child, Wesley! Their ear-to-ear grins are infectious and I'm so excited for their fall wedding next year!

San Francisco by Helicopter | California Aerial Photography

Anyone who knows me well knows I'm passionate about travel, and working as a destination wedding photographer offers so many great opportunities to see (and shoot) new places with fresh perspectives. In San Francisco this summer, my sweet friend Jaron Schneider pulled some strings (read: begged Toby Harriman) to get me into an empty seat on a helicopter - we had such a blast - Jaron shot video, while I took stills flying high over the city by the bay. Special shout out to AV Connections for making it happen! I absolutely love California, and can't wait for my next visit!
