Lavender Farm Wedding in Albuquerque, NM: Cara + Qwist

Some of our loved ones are straight, some gay, some queer, some partnered, some single, and we wanted everyone to feel loved, safe and honored exactly as they are. We encouraged the people in our wedding party to wear whatever they wanted and decide for themselves if they preferred a bouquet, a boutonniere or neither.

Styled Shoot // Farm-Inspired Sunset Groom Wedding: Kevin + Cam

Styled Shoot // Farm-Inspired Sunset Groom Wedding: Kevin + Cam

Cameron and I met through our cousins. Our cousins were friends prior to us meeting and thought we would be good for each other. Boy, were they right!  Ever since the first day I met Cameron, I saw my future in his eyes and his heart in my life. We have been inseparable ever since. Considering all the struggles of growing up as gay males, I would do it all over again if I knew he was awaiting me for our forever. We were all dressed up one New Year's Eve, and he asked me to marry him. It was very simple and nothing over the top, just like us. It was just one soul reaching out to another to confirm the connection we already have. What a happy New Years that was!

Real Couples // Virginia is for Lovers: Hana + Kaity

Sometimes I dream about the kinds of wedding I’d love to shoot. Those in distant places, like Africa or Asia, with simple details and big landscapes. I often think it would make me a better photographer, to have a portfolio with these weddings. But I’ve come to realize the kinds of weddings I want to shoot are the ones like this. 

We met Hana and Kaity a little over a year ago and quickly became friends. Their wedding day was full of genuine, real love. They asked to have their closest friends and family present for their first look. I wasn’t sure how it would go, but afterwards I looked around and saw that we were all crying. It was my favorite part of the day.

Real Couples // Intimate 14-Person Airbnb Wedding: Tazz + Sunny

We got all that and more with our small, simple wedding in Woodstock. Both my husband and I wanted the day to be special but not overwhelm us with everything we’d need to do for it. We figured the easiest and most low-key way would be to rent an Airbnb that would sleep 14 people. We limited our guest list to 14 and basically had a weekend getaway-turned-wedding with our closest friends.

Real Couples // Bright and Thoughtful Farm Wedding: Beth + Jeff

I loved photographing this wedding. Everything about it was tranquil and personal. Beth & Jeff hand-picked almost every detail for their big day; from the playful hand-made windmills blowing in the subtle breeze; to the handwritten tags placed at every table; to the venue surrounded by rolling fields of cows and sheep. The aesthetics flowed together seamlessly creating the beginning to their marriage. It was all about both of them; two people, in love.
