Hey there and welcome to my blog! Here I share my latest work, wedding tips, and some amazing love stories. Scroll down to see what I’ve been up to and get to know me better!
To marry or not to marry in 2020. That is the question. I think it’s a question every single 2020 couple has asked themselves. And often times it’s a last minute decision. After months (or years!) of planning the perfect wedding, the decision to have a microwedding is often spontaneous. Spontaneous, but equally beautiful.
After a very disappointing year for everyone, it brings such joy to my heart to see my couples getting married. For that brief event, all the worries and crisis of this year simply fades away. I get to see smiling faces, and pure love that my couples share with one another (despite being quarantined together for 6 months!)
Tara and Andrew decided to get married in their church on their intended wedding day with their closest family and friends. As always, we were overjoyed to be a special part of it! Even though, I was literally chased by the nasty geese who guard the fountain below this beautiful church.
Tara and Andrew, your wedding was beautiful and I am so happy that you got married this year! I cannot wait for the larger wedding next year at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club! Thank you Barbara Wentzel for your amazing skills and capturing the chasing geese, because I wouldn’t 😉

[…] When Tara and Andrew got engaged, Tara messaged me on instagram and told me she had been following me for some time. She was planning her wedding and wanted to work with me. When the pandemic derailed their original wedding plans, I was able to capture their intimate church wedding. When Tara and Andrew introduced their new puppy to their family, I captured those pictures as well. In these unexpected times, with constant changing of plans, we built a relationship that is truly meaningful, and I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. But now we get to their dream wedding that was destined three different wedding dates ago. It didn’t all go as planned. Not even a little bit. But it was beautiful, and honestly, I am grateful that I got the extra time. The time in between helped build that relationship and gave me a chance to watch their wedding journey unfold over a couple of years. Tara even got to marry her husband twice! […]
