I took these photos out near L.A. back in December but am just now getting around to blogging them because February has been my first little reprieve from shooting (well, at least as much) and have actually had some spare moments to share some of my past work with you all. I’m thankful for this bit of time to breathe deep and reflect a bit. I’m so excited for this upcoming year and the wonderful, wonderful people who have so graciously entrusted me with their wedding documentation — and this category of course includes Laura and Chris.

Laura and Chris, I love how effortlessly yourselves y’all are (which, turns out, is really quite fun). I very much enjoy that we share a mutual adoration for Parks and Rec. And Laura, just in case I did not exclaim uncontrollably enough about this throughout the second half of the shoot, YOU WERE WEARIN’ THE HECK OUTTA THAT RED LIPSTICK, MA’AM.

This is Scott and Elise and I love them and yes, they’re actually this happy in real life.

You guys, no lie, I don’t know if I’ve ever met anyone who is as happy as Scott and Elise with the work/life balance they’ve struck. And the fun part is you don’t have to be jealous because they wanna teach you how to thrive in both your business AND your life too — just check out My Own Irresistible Brand to learn more. I promise you this isn’t a paid advertisement, I just really think they’re awesome and know what they’re talking about so I wanted to share with you guys too!

It was not-a-hair-where-you-originally-placed-it-windy and cold and 7 AM but it was also Brooklyn and buzzing and sunrise and it was Shelby and Cameron. And so it was wonderful.

Cameron had actually asked Shelby to be his wife in front of this particular bridge, so it was especially fitting for us to start off their engagement session here before heading over to Brooklyn Heights for some brownstone admirin’ and neighborhood wanderin’.

But honestly, I think my one-year-old’s sentiments below sum up their love best:

You know those people who are almost shockingly warm, personable and all-around wonderful? Yeah, those people are Jamie and Ben.

Go ahead and take ALL THE POSITIVE WORDS IN THE WORLD and that just about describes Jamie and Ben.

From our very first meeting over coffee (when they were like, “Oh, let us come to you!” and then WOULDN’T LET ME BUY MY OWN COFFEE AT MY OWN BUSINESS MEETING??) I’ve been floored by their kindness and with every interaction since then have understood more and more how very privileged I am to be the photographer they chose to document their engagement and wedding.
