hartford society room wedding

Phil and Elise are pretty darn fun, and so was their wedding…these two know how to throw a party! “Don’t Stop Believing” is STILL running through my head as I work on this blog post. Not only are they fun, but they are sweet as can and the whole day was just perfect. The lovely Alison Lassiter and Ryan Lamb aka Nick Carter joined me for the day.
 

 

 Larissa Lake and team did such a beautiful job with hair and makeup, right?

playa del carmen mexico editorial shoot behind the scenes

An unexpected little surprise of a trip came our way this spring right before I headed down to New Orleans to photograph a wedding in the French Quarter. And if that weren’t glamorous enough, this particular job landed us smack in the middle of one of the most beautiful beaches in the universe- Playa del Carmen, Mexico! How could I say no, right? So I adjusted my schedule and got my sunscreen ready, and as you will all be thrilled to see… my bathing suit!
Here is a little peek into the behind the scenes of what goes on Read More

4/15/12 SUP Trip To Ram Island

With the temps in the 70′s and 80′s, and the sun out last weekend, it was good weather for a SUP paddle out. This trip out from East Beach, past Mouse Island, Whale Rock and then to the inside of Ram Island is a 3 mile paddle.

spring back to basics photography workshop

Yesterday we had a house full of ladies (and Brian! or Bob as we like to call him!) excited to learn and grow as photographers. My Back to Basics workshop is my favorite workshop to teach. In the beginning of each class we have a meet and greet where we all share who we are, where we came from, what we shoot, what we love. It’s an important part to all of my classes as it really lets everyone know we are all in the same boat, and have all faced the same struggles, regardless of how far along in Read More

french quarter wedding in new orleans

I’m the last lady to the party here, but as we all like to convince ourselves… better late than never! In this case, this is most certainly true, as the party I am late to is the blogging frenzy that is my dear friend Miss Nikki Nicole’s!! wedding! Nikki and Rob were married on THE craziest, most dramatic day right smack in the middle of Royal Street in New Orleans’ French Quarter this past March. Nikki’s second shooter Ty and I ran point but our good friends (who are also photographers) Jane and Amanda couldn’t help jumping in throughout the Read More

riverhouse wedding

Kicking off the season with these two love birds was just what I needed. Caitlin and Virgil were made for each other, no doubt about it. After spending their wedding day with them, it was totally clear to me that these two were meant to be together. Their sweet smiles, hilarious jokes, and the way they look at each other is so, so cute! Their friends and family were also a hoot, and I am so glad that I was able to be a part of their celebration. By my side were the talented Alison Lassiter, and newcomer, Ryan Lamb. Read More

editorial shoot at el taj resort, playa del carmen

Team building and being free to be creative…  what a dream job I have!! I know, how annoying to hear, yay for me. I can see your eyes rolling. But really, be a pal and be happy that this old gal gets a chance to break in a new camera (my Nikon D4) while in my sweet bathing suit (you know you wish you could see- ok check Instagram these ladies love shooting me in my suit! Lucky me!)
But on a realer note? Realer? More real? I love that I get these opportunities to play within my hectic shooting Read More
