• “You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt, Sing like there’s nobody listening, And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

    This perfect quote by William W. Purkey, is exactly what should take over you on your wedding day. The most beautiful couples unknowingly exude it from the time they wakeup (if they got any sleep) through the moment they are wed. Lucky for me, I've captured couples that live their day in this way and it's allowed me to document some of the best photos I've taken in my life...

The Willow Wood Arboretum was a  beautiful backdrop for Tanya and Michaels elegant and romantic outdoor first look.   My heart melted seeing these two together. They couldn’t keep their eyes off each other, and it was clear how much they love each other.  Photographing them was easy breezy – as you would expect it would be with a movie star looking couple.

The one thing I learned was that with time and space, we were able to fully appreciate and capture the beautiful garden more thoroughly than I anticipated.  The couple banked in more than enough time for their first look, family portraits and another round of couples portraits before heading to their ceremony.

The garden, with colorful flowers, tall trees, and a cobblestone aisle was a truly spectacular location for this couple.   Mike and Tanya stood out perfectly, as they should, and looked as though they had just hopped off the screen of a romantic movie.  Michael’s razor sharp suit and Tanya stunning lace dress with delicate caps sleeve perfectly paired with the garden foliage. I was truly inspired and now excited to share this summer soiree.
