Molly and Will are my beautiful friends who asked me to photograph the most fun and stunning wedding of all time. Their Boston wedding did three things: 1. Allowed me to go on a vacation with my best friends from high school to me very favorite city. 2. Allowed me to eat my heart out (More on that in a bit). 3. Allowed my work to be on the COVER of the Boston Globe Magazine (!!!)

Let’s start with Number 1. I met Molly in high school, shared a locker with her, spent hours at a time listening to her beautiful singing voice and laughed my butt off with her and our incredible group of friends night after night after night. She’s a sweetheart and all of the girls from my childhood were so excited to celebrate her. So we all flew out to the East Coast and enjoyed time in Maine and Boston, fun nights at Fenway, good food everywhere we turned, and breathtaking views of the coast. We LOVED the city but we loved being together even more. It was the first vacation we had taken together since our senior year of high school. And for those of you who are curious, here’s a little hint as to when that was: we spent our entire spring break dancing to the new hit, 50 Cent “In Da Club”. So this trip together was long over due – and boy did we live it up!

#2: I ATE MY HEART OUT. Seriously. Will is an incredible chef. You can catch him at his insane restaurant, Puritan & Company in Cambridge or on the Today Show as a guest chef. He’s the real deal and it was my privilige to eat my way through his celebration weeked. The cocktail hour had a GARDEN of cheese, spreads, fresh breads – charcuterie for days. In another garden, there was a boat full of raw bar goods. Will’s groomsmen and fellow chef buds (of some of my favorite spots in Boston) pitched in the most delicious hors d’oeuvres, Chef Will Gilson himself prepped an overwhelming dinner and an ice cream truck sealed the deal. And then came the afterparty. Molly and Will had their guests bussed to Puritan & Co for a night filled with insane fun and, you guessed it, more food. By the time my husband had his fourth burger, it was time for us to go. Molly and Will did not disappoint. The food was great and plentiful and we’ll forever talk about how awesome of a wedding it was.

#3. Because Will is such a hot-shot chef, the Boston Globe wanted to feature his foodie wedding in their wedding issue of the Globe Magazine. It was an honor for Molly and Will to ask me to photograph their wedding and being included in this publication was so, so incredible. I’m so thankful to see my photo on the cover and my work inside the pages of such an iconic publication. This wedding will always be one of my favorites.

(Molly and Will got married August 2016. Because of the publication, photos are just now being shared on my blog.)

Kristen and James! Was there ever a sweeter, more lovely and kind couple? This couple is incredible and so, so loved and it’s very easy to see why. They treat others like gold, they’re loyal to their friends and they’re faithful to their families. They are the kind of people you hope you can be like. It was an honor to photograph their wedding and to celebrate their happiest day. Especially with some fresh snow on the ground and a group of fun people willing to brave the freezing temperatures for some good pictures. I could photograph Kristen and James all day every day and I’m just so thankful that they gifted me with the joy of photographing them for their wedding. Congrats to this great couple!

Emily and Chad are the kind of couple that you just want to be around. They’re both kind and thoughtful and so darn sweet – and, come on, so stinking beautiful. Together, they’re amazing and it was such a joy to photograph their wedding and engagement. I love, love these two and adored every moment we spent together. They’re a couple I’ll remember forever and always be thankful for.

Jordan and Matt’s wedding was STUNNING. Wow! You guys, this was such a beautiful wedding! Jordan, along with the team at Boldly Chic Events, ensured that every single detail of this wedding was thought out and executed perfectly. Jordan and Matt’s guests were wow’d right from the beginning as they visited champagne stations on their way to the IMA ceremony. The ceremony space itself was breath taking with flawless fall Indiana views and lush florals. To celebrate their I Do’s, Jordan and Matt invited their guests to enjoy a magical evening in the Deer Zinc ballroom of the IMA. It was certainly a lovely day and it was an absolute joy to photograph. Congrats to Jordan and Matt!

It was a pleasure to photograph the most lovely wedding for Sarah and Rob. This couple is truly the nicest, most thoughtful duo. I’m so thankful that they asked me to celebrate their wedding with them – I couldn’t have enjoyed it more. Their entire day was perfect and beautiful from top to bottom, thanks to the planning efforts of Boldly Chic Events. Their Crowne Plaza ceremony and reception was elegant and lush and the perfect space for this NYC couple to tie the knot. Congrats to Sarah and Rob!

What are the chances that another UK alumn would walk into my office – let alone another UK Pi Phi alumn? In Indiana, the chances of that happening are basically zero percent. But that’s exactly what happened when Tammy came through my doors ready to talk wedding photos. Call it fate because that connection lead us to the coolest bride-photographer relationship that I’m just tickled pink over. I love that I get to work with Tammy and photograph her and Chris’ wedding. It’s going to be a really special day and I can’t wait to be there to capture it.

Alex and Josh are the most wonderful couple, both bravely serving our country in the United States Air Force. They greatly sacrifice for our country, including their time together. In fact, these two were only together for the weekend to get married and then return to separate countries to continue their duties. It was an incredible honor to photograph this day for Alex and Josh. I couldn’t be more thankful to them for their service and more thankful that I was able to capture their wonderful moments together.

Kelly and Worthe are the best! Their engagement sessions was a wonderful joy to photograph – incredible weather, awesome couple, the cutest pup ever – it was a win all around. I’m so thankful that I get to photograph Kelly and Worthe’s wedding next year and truly can’t wait to be there as these two say “I do.”

Danielle and Matt had a really sweet and intimate Sunday afternoon wedding at the Mavris in Indianapolis and I was honored to photograph it. The entire day was wonderful and special for Danielle and Matt. They were surrounded by their very closest friends and family to celebrate the start of their new life together. Their wedding was beautiful with stunning floral arrangements, an incredible sweets display and, because they’re the best couple ever, the Colts game playing on a big screen. Danielle and Matt’s wedding was just as wonderful as they are and it was a joy to spend the day capturing their happy moments.
