Oh these two... my heart just melts. More from their engagement shoot on Miami Beach's south shore coming soon.
Just over a week ago, I was in Negril, Jamaica to document Kaisha and James' destination wedding weekend. I couldn't have felt more blessed to be in the presence of their love, alongside their friends and family in this magical paradise. Check back soon for a full feature of their wedding day and day-after shoot.
Last September, I met Yan and Young in the romantic streets of Rome, Italy for an unforgettable engagement shoot.

This past holiday season, I had the pleasure of documenting the gorgeous Emily and handsome James as they wed in a romantic celebration at the The Ritz in London, England. The following weekend, they traveled over the pond to continue the celebration with elegant affair in the bride's hometown of Columbus, Ohio. More from the their amazing wedding, spanning two weekends and two continents, coming soon!
Jen and Greg's wedding was held on one of the hottest days in Ohio with a nearly 105 heat index! Despite the incredible heat everyone was in high spirits to share in the happiness of their friends. Jen and Greg put so many personal touches into the day from the handmade bouquets and centerpieces to all of the event decor created with their recycled home wares and antiques. Their wedding was one of the most heartfelt, personalized events I've had the honor of documenting.

This was one of those days you wake up, take your camera out and say, this. is. gonna. be. good...
Liz and Beau had the right idea taking their friends on day excursions to welcome in the wedding weekend and introduce them to the magical Bahamian island of Eleuthera. After taking the breathtaking flight from my home in Miami over the Caribbean and Bahamas islands in a small twin engine airplane, I joined with Liz and her friends to tour the island- exploring historic caves, playing in the ocean and diving in hidden waterfalls. After the day of discovery, we joined with the groom, friends and family for a beautiful decorated welcome pigroast picnic- turned dance party- on the edge of the sea.
Last shot of the night, I captured the vast sky filled with millions and millions of bright stars and was left with the thought.. if the first day was as magical as this, I can only imagine what the wedding day is going to be...
