I have to break this post up into two because there’s just too. much. awesome. for one post…..

Let me just say first, how much I love working with artists!  Every detail of this wedding (and there are tons) was carefully thought out and planned perfectly.  When I say this was probably the most prepped and smoothly run wedding I’ve ever shot, I’m not kidding.  There was no rushing around, no frantic moments…..sorta crazy actually!  And they got married on a full moon, so I was SURE something sketchy was gonna go down, but nope – absolutely smooth.

And beautiful!!

*sigh* the handmade details of this backyard wedding are to die for… today is details and prep:


did I mention that her dress was made (by Miss Tashina) out of her mother’s and her grandmother’s wedding dresses?   Melt!

If you're into moody portraits, 90's nostalgia, great wine, Taylor Swift, memes I find funny + probably way too many videos of my cats? You've come to the right place.
