|What an unbelievable weekend celebrating the marriage of Ali and Pierre! From the moment I arrived at The Westin Hilton Head Resort and Spa I knew I was in for something super special. Ali and Pierre know how to throw a party!
From family to friends to an incredible bridal party, everyone was so nice and so very happy. After many (covid) bumps in the road planning their wedding for last year, Ali and Pierre nailed it in 2021! Their marriage brought everyone so much joy, especially their photographer :)
Ali and Pierre, I could go on and on about how much I loved your wedding and the two of you, but I will sum it up by saying THANK YOU! Thank you for letting me be a part of such a great celebration. I can't wait to see what's next for the two of you!
I hope you enjoy your slideshow as much as I loved putting it together. Head down under the last photo to watch it!
Enjoy ~ xoxo
|Where do I even begin to relay how very special this family is to me. Julia and I go back to well before Brandon and Chase came on the scene. This woman is one of the strongest, funniest, and most beautiful people I know. She is an amazing mom to these two boys and is raising them to be really great young men.
We met at a beautiful location in Southbury, CT - Bent of the River Audubon Center. It was all so perfect. As we always do when we see each other, we had many many laughs. Of course, what do two boys bring along but their trusty football. These two can throw and tackle really well, and are so much fun to watch together.
Brandon and Chase, you are two of the luckiest boys in the world to have the mom you have. Julia, you're doing an amazing job! xoxoxo

|Meeting Kristen, Ward, Hailey, and Bowie at their beautiful home on a spectacular Fall day was such a joy for me. I couldn't have asked for a cuter and more photogenic family then these four. When we were going over ideas for where to do their session, Kristen mentioned their backyard. Perfect! The girls were completely comfortable there, the landscape was ideal, and it was a bonus to have their swings right there to play on. We had so much fun! Having a session at home is such a great way to make everyone feel at ease. "Home is where family lives, loves, laughs and your heart never truly leaves".
Thank you Kristen and Ward for inviting me to your home and letting me photograph your beautiful little family! :)
|Lighting makes all the difference. For anyone that hasn't heard me say it yet, photographing an hour before sunset is the best! Danielle and Sean made the scene and the light look even better. We met at Hammonasset State Park at the best light during a beautiful fall day. We had this little slice of heaven all to ourselves.
It's such a bonus to be the only ones at a location so the couple can feel more relaxed. Since we were meeting for the first time, making sure that Danielle and Sean felt relaxed was super important to me. I completely understand that it's tough to freely express affection and emotion outside the home at any time, but especially when a stranger is standing there with a camera pointed at you! yikes! I get it. I honestly do my very best to make everyone feel at ease and comfortable. Even if it means pulling out a few of my dumb jokes.
Everyone should feel at home. They should be able to have fun. They should feel confident.
Danielle and Sean nailed all of it! They were incredible to photograph and they were even better to hang out with!
Thank you both for letting me photograph this moment in your history together. It was a joy for me!
