Kate & Greg’s wedding in Buffalo, New York

When I did Kate and Greg’s engagement photos I fell in love with these two people. So fun, so warm, so genuine. And at the time, I was hugely bummed because their wedding was all the way in Buffalo and they were looking for a photographer locally to help keep the wedding costs down, which I totally get because this stuff can get expensive.

But then they emailed me months later and said they had to have me do it. There was no one else they wanted. I flipped out with excitement. I knew how awesome their wedding was going to be and I was so pumped to be asked to come shoot it all the way from Phoenix. To have people put that much trust in you…there are no words for it.

The wedding was absolutely amazing. And so were Kate and Greg. Heck, she and her brother picked me up from the airport! Who does that? The kindness they showed me was simply unbelievable.

The ceremony took place at St. Joseph’s Cathedral in downtown Buffalo, and the reception was only a few blocks away at Statler City. The church blew my mind, the architecture and the stained class windows…unreal. We explored a bunch of areas around Buffalo taking photos with the couple and the huge wedding party and that party bus was the best I’ve ever been on!

Thanks to Delbert and his brother Jovanni, the videographers, for being awesome roommates and a pleasure to meet! And David Jaan, local epic photographer, I’m so thankful you were able to shoot with me and I pray we can work together again in the future! Your talent is ridiculous.

Mostly, Kate and Greg…thank you for everything. You went above and beyond for me and I wont ever forget it.

And now, enjoy the photos!

Cameron & Josh’s Wedding at the MEET in Las Vegas

About three years ago I photographed Audrey and Matt’s wedding in downtown Phoenix, and when I found out Audrey had a bunch of sisters, I wondered if I’d do a good enough job that I might get asked back when one of the others got engaged 🙂

Sure enough, Cameron met Josh, they decided to get married, they called me and the rest is history!

We did their engagement photos in downtown Phoenix earlier this year, but their wedding was at The MEET in Las Vegas. Their wedding will always be a fond memory for me, and especially my second shooter Jay Worsley. The groom and his groomsmen had to take an elevator downstairs when it was photo time, and Jay jumped in with them. The elevator couldn’t handle all the dudes and got stuck between floors…with NO air conditioning and no room to sit, for over 90 minutes! Insane!

Needless to say, the fire department showed up, the ceremony started late and the wedding happened anyways 🙂

Such a fun time, especially as I’d never used smoke bombs before and we had a great time with that! Really loved how they turned out. I am so in love with this family as well, they are so good to me, so hospitable, especially Karen, mother-of-the-bride! Thank you Karen for everything. And also getting to meet Audrey and Matt’s little boy Atlas. I think that boy is destined for great things.

Cam and Josh, thanks for having us up and trusting us with your big day, and to my buddy Jay for helping me and being stuck in an elevator for a long time 🙂 Hope you enjoy these photos!

Cori and John’s beautiful Georgetown, Texas wedding

There was something extra special about this wedding. Like there was an added layer of “joy” over the entire Schneider Ranch. Maybe it was the fact that it was a destination wedding and it was a vacation for most people…I dunno. All I do know is that this was one of the most happiest weddings I’ve ever been had the pleasure of photographing.

And there was a lot more to it than that. For me personally at least. I think there is this extra bond you form with clients that love your work enough that they are willing to pay for you to travel to wherever there wedding is going to be. I love it.

The trip started off with me on a plane to Austin, along with six other people also attending the wedding. Weather was suddenly an issue. We got diverted to San Antonio and our flight to Austin was a legit roller coaster. The next day…the wedding day…I woke up to pouring down rain. And it kept raining. 8am. 9am. 10am. 11am. But I kept watching and I had faith it was going to move out soon.

And it did. The rain broke around 1pm and the day became magical.

I love Cori and John to pieces. We had such a blast on their engagement shoot. I knew them already from Misti’s wedding last year. Which meant I also knew a good chunk of the bridal party. All that to say…this was almost like getting to hang out with old friends at one of the most beautiful places I’ve been to for a wedding.

I probably could gush all day about this wedding…but I’d rather you get to the photos. They tell the story. Such beautiful moments and laughter, amazing details and and food…and all the work that went into this thing. Her parents poured a slab for the dance floor! Cori’s father planted St. Augustine grass JUST for the aisle! I mean…it was over the top epic.

I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did taking them. And I have to give mad props and a HUGE thank-you to Julie Whilite for agreeing to help second shoot for me and doing a fantastic job.

Also…there are a LOT of pictures…sorry, can’t be helped.
