Melissa & Paul

Melissa & Paul had the most romantic and elegant wedding – with such beautiful burgundy florals and details. From the beautiful light that flooded the getting ready room to the countless thoughtful touches to the bride’s stunning MiraCouture gown and the BlackTux classics to the patio cocktail hour – this one was a stunner. And the fun energy that the couple had on the dance floor for their first dance and parents dances was just incredible!

 I’m all about preserving those moments that tell your story.

Whether it’s four feet ankle-deep in mud, tenderly clasped hands, a happy tear cascading over a cheek, a hair-back laugh or a sun-drenched kiss,

The ones that move you. Bind you. Bring you together and keep you together long after the memory fades.
