It’s finally HERE!!! Erica and Derek’s Rock & Roll inspired wedding @citywinerychi is now up on the blog. This couple and their details were 👌 Link in bio.

On these cold and rainy days, I remind myself that warm, sunny, splash pad days are ahead soon.

Hard to believe our babe had rolls like these not too long ago! For those wondering, Ari does still have squishy adorable rolls, but not quite like this. 😂 #mysweetlittlesquish

In case y’all missed it, Jamie and Ryan’s engagement session in Fulton Market is on the blog! You know where the link is. 😉

moments before she was off to meet her groom.

Lacey and Tyler went to the same high school but they didn’t really know each other at the time. Get this - in their high school yearbook, their photos were diagonal to each other! Flash forward some years later, Lacey and Tyler met at a club and their story together began. After dating for a little over five years, Tyler asked Lacey to marry him and I had the great honor of capturing their wedding day!

And, I am THRILLED to announce that I’ve finally blogged! Lacey and Tyler Fall wedding is now up! If you’re looking for some Fall wedding inspiration, look no further. 🍂 Link in bio!! #toigocaughtatrout

A favorite from Mike and Sarah’s summer wedding 🖤

Can we all just stop and do one of these 🤤?

This. This moment of a father admiring his daughter as a bride on her wedding day. I imagine so many memories and emotions were circling this father's mind while he looked at his once baby girl.

Since having a daughter of my own, I have gained a whole new understanding of the significance that a wedding day holds for parents. This, right here, is a moment that I'm proud to have captured. Of course, I love my photo time I get to individually spend with a couple and their bridal party, but moments like this are what I look for on a wedding day. Moments like this only happen once and last for a split second. Moments like this are ones that will be treasured for a lifetime.

those first look feels.

Love the rain -
