Here’s the thing — Chelsey is one of the most wonderful people in the entire world. I wish I could enumerate all the ways she is wonderful, but it would be too many to count and also I just know I would forget some major points so you’re all just going to have to take my word for it. The girl is wonderful in all the most important ways, and in all the most surprising ways, plus she knows all my favorite movie and television quotes and she has the best vocabulary and phrasing out of all the other speakers on this planet and did I mention that she is SWEET AS ALL GET OUT? (That last sentence accidentally turned into a list. For this I apologize.) She’s a favorite for sure and has been for about seven years now. Having her in my life has been such a gift.
And one day we get a text about this boy named Colby. And then the Instagram hashtag #boyfran started showing up on her feed. And then she brought him to Denton for us to lovingly interrogate. And then we found him to be outstanding as well, (not that she needed confirmation of this fact). And then #boyfran changed to #boyfranforlife and then I drove to Canton to take their engagement photos and to shout about how happy I was for them.
Enjoy a few of my favorites of Chelsey and Colby, her #boyfran #boyfranforlife #husbandof4days.
There will always be something so dear to me about photographing people in their own spaces, in their own home, in their own neighborhood.
These are some portraits of my friends waiting on their first baby — what a beautiful thing it has been to watch them become parents.
I try not to keep it a secret that I love to travel and shoot in new spaces and places. But even more that exploring New York City, I so enjoyed spending time with Lauren and Phil — two of the coolest, most-laid back people I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. They’re even surprisingly chill when it comes to braving the masses at Grand Central and dodging bikes on the Brooklyn Bridge, so lots of gold stars for these guys.
Enjoy a few of my favorites from Lauren and Phil’s NYC engagement session.
