I had the opportunity this past season to photograph and film several South Asian ceremonies and engagement parties and I loved every minute of it. The gowns and clothing are so ornate and beautiful. The horses adorned with gold thread and beading for the baraat are incredible. Give us all the henna and color and dancing! SS for @afterglowcreative
Attention all couples: PLEASE include your dogs/puppies. Bring all the animals please!! I will never say no to photographing your babies.
Oh snowy days. Even though I’m a summer person through and through they are quite beautiful. I also love the quiet. Have you ever stood outside when it’s snowing and just listened to the nothingness, just your breathing? I’ll take today but I’ll hope for summer tomorrow. . .

I’m thinking about doing a giveaway for 2019. It may involve newly engaged couples wanting a certain session before their wedding. Would anyone be interested?! . . Also how beautiful is this couple?! No it’s not an editorial or styled shoot this from their ACTUAL wedding! Josh and Lianna are just a amazingly stunning couple.
There is something about a tangible love letter. Here are some of my favorites... . . “I don’t ask you to love me always like this, but I ask you to remember. Somewhere inside of me there will always be the person I am tonight.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald . . “I don’t want to live – I want to love first, and live incidentally.” – Zelda Fitzgerald . . “Your word travels the entirety of space and reaches my cells which are my stars then goes to yours which are my light.” – Frida Kahlo . . “I cannot get that beautiful afternoon out of my head, above me where I lay the grass was silhouetted against the blue of the heavens, small clouds were rushing past as the wind drove them on an endless journey. Then close to me was the most lovely of all, your soft hair against my cheek, your kisses so cool and unearthly and my happiness so great.” – Julia Lee-Booker
“Friendship is the golden thread that ties the heart of all the world.”
Versailles is everything I dreamed it would be. I cannot wait to go back and spend more time there. Just think about those manicured and ornately designed gardens. It’s not like they had drones or GPS in order to plan them perfectly. Incredible! ✨
This day. This couple. This dress and that venue! Oh when the moment is just perfect.
Does anyone else kind of get anxious after the holidays wanting Spring and Summer to hurry up?! The anticipation for all of the possibilities for 2019 are so exciting. New couples and their stunning weddings, more traveling, personal goals to meet and so many more adventures. What are you looking forward to this year?
Anyway else over this rain and winter in general? I’m ready for days like this. Warm, summer days that never seem to end. Bring on the sunshine and daylight until what seems like 9 pm. . . .

I love a beautiful ballroom with gleaming crystal chandeliers and monogrammed dance floors but I also adore a Tuscan style al fresco dinner with lush flowers and velvet linens. I cannot wait to see all of the beautiful reception and dinning designs for our couples’ weddings this year. . . .

“The strong bond of friendship is not always a balanced equation; friendship is not always about giving and taking in equal shares. Instead, friendship is grounded in a feeling that you know exactly who will be there for you when you need something, no matter what or when.” — Simon Sinek
