In my six years of shooting over 75 weddings, there’s questions I’ve been asked by clients to give them the peace of mind to document their wedding days.

Here’s some questions to ask as you begin your adventure of finding the perfect photographer!

No lie, I must have gasped at least 100 times at this wedding. This is a shining example of what I want for every couple: a wedding day that reflects exactly who you are, incorporates the things you love, and makes you feel completely at home, surrounded by the things you value most. Everything about Kailey and Matt’s wedding day just screams THEM. No one besides them had a say in how to decorate, no one protested their desire to do anything unconventional. They invited the people that meant the absolute most to them. Because of this, their wedding was completely unforgettable because there will never be anything exactly like it. It was unapologetically everything that Kailey and Matt are and more. I’m SO excited to show this day off!

I’m out here, a New Mexico girl going through Northeast weddings cause I have completely run out of content due to Covid-19. I should be booking so many sessions and weddings but alas, 2020 is not any of our year.

SO! Here’s a wedding I second shot for Jessie Felix Photography! It seems like every wedding I second shoot for just takes my breath away. The couple was so stunning and sweet. And can we talk about her dress? AND THOSE VIEWS?? I can’t believe I got to be even a small part of this!

Wow. Thanks to quarantine, I’m able to go back in time and blog some October weddings! October is the most chaotic part of the year for photographers, and what follows it is months of catching up on editing and making deadlines. It’s so hard to blog during these times so I’m grateful for this bit of downtime to actually be able to feature some of my favorite weddings!
