The Petersons in Maui.

I flew to Maui to shoot Dan & Jenn's big day.
Rough, huh? ;)

Jenn used to be my roommate in Seattle. She was around when my business first started. I would be in my room, geeking out on my computer and she would gladly come in to see what I was up to and encourage me. She's stuck through me through good times and bad times. She's the kind of friend I want to be.

So, when she told me that she met someone after I had moved to Ohio, I was super curious. And when I finally met Dan, I knew that he was perfect for her. I cannot imagine anyone else who would be better. He is kind, fun, funny and sweet. The world needs more guys like Dan.

So it was an honor to shoot their wedding in paradise. :)
I had a blast and got a nice sunburn.

Here are some pics from the big day:

JD & Caitlin

Seattle, WA
Caitlin found me through a website last fall and it has been nothing but a pleasure since. Again, one of those people you want to be your best friend so you can eat ice cream and make fun of people in the park. ;)

And SHUT UP. The dress she had was killer. I drooled for months just waiting to see it in person.

It's always neat when brides let me be their photographer AND their friend.

JD and Caitlin's wedding was classy and fun. I was very impressed with the fact that Caitlin did a lot of her own decorations. She let her personality shine throughout all the decor. The vows were awesome. The wedding was awesome. The reception was awesome. It was the perfect number of guests where it felt intimate and fun at the same time.

And these photos are just the tip of the iceberg.

Brent & Katie

Went to Grand Rapids, Michigan in September to shoot Brent & Katie's big day. I had only been in contact with them by email until the big day. It's an understatement to say that they are a warm and super friendly couple. And Katie is just one of those people that you want to be your BFF. :)

A big thanks to my wonderful friend Matt for connecting me with this lovely couple. Even though I cried myself to sleep because Matt couldn't make it to the wedding, I still had a wonderful time spending time with the bride and groom and their wonderful friends and family.
