Sean + Hannah | Married!

Man oh man do I love this couple. I professed that on their engagement post, but I truly can’t say it enough. This wedding was a gift to me – a really big one with a really big bow on it. It’s a great day when two humans like this become husband and wife and I’m confident that the world is better bcause of it.

The Whiskey Gentry

These are some of my favorite photos from a story I shot last week by Jess Graves for The Love List: At Home with The Whiskey Gentry. It was an amazing handful of hours hanging out with Jason and Lauren, sippin’ Manhattans, snappin’ photos and recording a live track. High school me would have been really damn proud of what I called my job that day. Here’s to more days like these…

The Barat is the Groom’s procession and marks the beginning of the wedding ceremony. It’s customary for the groom to travel to the wedding venue (often the bride’s house) on a mare, accompanied by his family members. In Kartik’s case, he entered on a vintage Ural, and DJ with a portable system blared music while he and his family and friends danced their way to the ceremony.

Many thanks to Nate Robinson of Studio222 Photography for killing it as second shooter. Also, to my sweet friend Anna White who assisted me by carrying my stuff, making me laugh, shooting some killer images and Britney Spears’ing it.

Kartik + Chandni | Married | Day 1

Here are a few of my favorites from Day 1 (Thursday) of Kartik and Chandni’s 3 day wedding in Orlando. This was the first Indian wedding that I’ve photographed so the entire experience was an exciting adventure for me.

The ceremony images were shot at the Hindu Society of Central Florida. The Mehndi (henna) ceremony was that evening at Chandni’s uncle’s home in Winter Park. It also included a delicious dinner, Scotch and dancing.

Thank you, 2014


A few weeks ago, Dallas Clayton posted on Instagram a “list of essentials to keep in mind” print.
It read…
THINGS TO LOVE: Where you live, who you’re with, what you do, who you are.
My 2014 business year is officially a wrap and I’m so thankful to everything on that list. When I was a kid, dreaming of what to be when I grew up, I never knew to dream of a job that would lead to so much fun. Just like any job, it has its ups and downs, but overall, what a privilege this work is! So thank you, clients, some of whom are now great friends. Thank you for adding to the reasons that I love where I live, who I’m with, what I do and who I am. And thank you for letting me dance on the clock and when available, drink your open bar bourbon.

Sean + Hannah | Engaged!

These two humans? Well, they’re pretty spectacular – some of the best on the planet, and their story is one of my favorites. Her heart is infinite amounts of gold and he is one of the good guys. There’s a quote in Dracula, of all books, that says “There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights.” Sean and Hannah are some of the lights. Really, really bright ones.

This was my last shoot of the year and I couldn’t imagine a better way complete it. I am so honored that they wanted to be in front of my camera, and I am so pumped to do it again on their wedding day.
