A little over two years ago I had the opportunity to shoot my first wedding on the west coast. You might remember these rockstars. It was that wedding that sparked my deep love for the pacific northwest and pushed me to impulsively move to Portland. Fast forward to a month ago when I got to revisit the Kelley Farm to shoot Adrie and Daniel’s sweet farm wedding. So inpired to be back at this venue shooting two humans who were head over heels for each other. The autumn light was perfect, the wind danced through the trees making the most wonderful background music, it was a good day. And a huge thanks to my friend Kristen for killing it along side me. Enjoy.

Holy crap these two. Holy crap. That’s what I kept saying to myself after our first Skype meeting. Christine and Rob are two of the most wonderful people I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know I had the sweet honor of heading up to the Catskill Mountains in New York to document their wedding. It couldn’t have been a more perfect fall day. The grounds were carpeted in fallen leaves, the crisp cool autumn air chilling your lungs with each inhale, the colored mountains surrounding us as if right out of a Bob Ross dream. Throw in two humans who are madly in love, have a ridiculously killer style, and know how to party. I’ll let the images speak for themselves. Their wedding was also featured on the wonderful Refinery 29 .

Wythe Hotel Wedding

 

You might remember these two from their Manhattan Engagement Photos I shot this past winter. They’re kind of awesome. Jessalyn and Rob decided on the rad Wythe Hotel for their NYC wedding. Perfectly nestled in Williamsburg, it was definitely one of the hipper hotels I’d ever been to.

Rustic Outdoor Wedding

It’s pretty wild that I ended up booking two weddings in Canada, both in the rockies, on back to back weekends, both weddings being amazing, and the couples didn’t know each other at all. Sarah and Leigh are such wonderful humans. Sarah is a photographer and Leigh is a designer. Cut those two traits loose at a teepee campground in the mountains and the result is the magic you see below. Teepee’s, a sweet little pug they named Tiesto, the best desert table I’ve ever seen, and the perfect integration of their personal tastes and their rustic outdoor wedding theme. I’ll never forget my first real Canadian experience over these two weeks, it definitely wont be the last. Sarah + Leigh.

 Camping Wedding

When Kathy and Kevin asked me to document their mountain camping wedding in the Canadian Rockies, I knew I was in for a hell of a treat. From the minute I finished my skype meeting with them, I knew this wedding was going to be one of my favorites of 2014. A wedding set under a mountain in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Every inch of this place left me speechless. The guests and family were some of the kindest most warm hearted humans I’d ever met. I felt like I was photographing long lost friends from a past life. They didn’t skimp on pouring their personalities into their day either. Between their cute little camper, their thrifted/antiqued plate settings, and ending the night shot gunning beer, Kathy and Kevin did it right. It’s this kind of set up, the people, the vibe, the location, that keep me doing what I do. Thank you so much for bringing me into your lives you two.
