Sunset Engagement Session: Dana & Patrick

Dana and Patrick love light as much as I do so I was thrilled when they wanted to do a sunset engagement session downtown. Even though we started shooting at rush hour, we managed to find some great secluded spots as we made out way around the river. They were such a joy to work with and I can’t wait for their wedding this September!

Promontory Point Wedding: Anna & Ken

I’m keeping warm in my studio today by blogging some of my favorite weddings of the summer! Anna and Ken’s Promontory Point wedding was at the top of my list as it was one of the most emotional ceremonies I have seen in a long time. You may have come across one of their photos from an earlier blog post I wrote when I found out that an image from their ceremony won an award from Junebug Weddings.

I loved the light during their wedding day and we had plenty of time to walk around the point and make portraits. I highly recommend taking a little time after your ceremony, even if it’s just for a few minutes, to get some great shots right after your ceremony!
