Bride and Groom portrait in greenhouse at Pleasantdale Chateau

A Spring Wedding at Pleasantdale Chateau I was super excited about Carlie and Nick’s wedding day. First of all, you couldn’t ask for a nicer, more considerate couple than these two. They even planned their wedding from the perspective of their guests, making sure that every decision catered to their loved ones to ensure a […]

Green & White Winter Wedding at Natirar Erica & Adam’s wedding was my last wedding of 2022! It’s such a bittersweet event. On the one hand, the year is winding down so we can relax and enjoy the holiday season. On the other hand, it means I will be hibernating and being quite anti-social until […]

A Romantic Candlelit Wedding at The Mansion at Natirar I love Cassie and Louis’ story. Their dads had been friends for years, but they didn’t know each other existed. When Louis’ dad invited Cassie’s dad over to watch a UFC fight and bring his family along, that’s the beginning of our story. Some time and […]

Meg and Will may have had the most perfect day of the fall for their wedding. What is the best day in October for foliage you (or quite frankly every person looking to get iconic fall pictures) asks? I don’t know. No one ever does. In 2022, this was the day. Natirar absolutely glowed gold […]

Classically Neutral Elegant Wedding at Natirar There are just some wedding days that remind me of my first days photographing weddings. I started photographing weddings 18 years ago, so this takes me back quite a bit here. There are many fun trends and new traditions that my couples incorporate into their wedding days, and I […]

Americana Wedding Day at Natirar Cristin & Sean’s wedding day boasted a blend of two personalities. Their every day adventures came together into one beautifully timeless wedding at Natirar. How could incorporating their love of the city life and sports bars, specifically during football season; with the sentimental performance of “God Bless America,” complete with […]

A Dreamy Hydrangea Blue Wedding at Natirar Mansion I have been looking forward to Kelly and Michael’s wedding for a long time now. A first wedding for both families, the entire event was a team effort for the bride, her Mom and her Mother-in-law. From the very first moment I met Kelly and Michael at […]

Timeless Estate Wedding at Natirar As I climbed Natirar’s steep hill last Saturday, I couldn’t help thinking about how perfect Amanda and Rob’s wedding day was. It hadn’t started yet – I had not even found Amanda in her makeup chair. The sun shone brilliantly, yet graced us with less intense heat than the week […]

Romance In Full Bloom At This Classic Chinoiserie-Inspired Wedding Margaux & Will’s wedding was a real celebration of getting all of their family and friends together in one location. This may sound like every other wedding, only this group of people is from every corner of the world. Most of these people had never even […]

Amy and Sunny may have had a tiny set back in their wedding plans for 2021, but it only made the wedding weekend even better! When I first spoke with Amy and Sunny, they had planned for one large wedding day with two ceremonies. However, as their planning came into focus, they decided to break […]

Lauren and Jack first met each other at Lafayette College, and this would prove to be a special place for them and their story! I first met these two at Lafayette, where they wanted to take engagement pictures. It is not only a very meaningful place to them, but also a beautiful campus! What a […]
