On a little wood stoop of a tiny log church with a bright red door in a little tiny town, Mary & Allen said their wedding vows in the company of their families. Just outside of Denali National Park in Nenana, Alaska it was a far cry from their hometown of Chicago and just the […]
There’s a lot of things to love about photographing weddings; the light, the decor, the scenery, the outfits. I am a sucker for good light and beautiful things. What fills my soul though is when I get photograph people with really beautiful hearts. Katie & Louis have really beautiful hearts indeed. And they’ve immersed themselves […]
Alike many of the great tales, Amanda and Blake’s story starts in a bar. A touch of annoyance and a hug in the parking lot gave way to hours on the phone and what started as perfectly timed friendship turned into serious devotion by way of life’s unexpected circumstances.
