Ashley & Adam’s wedding ceremony was at the First United Methodist Church of Graham and the reception was held at the Wildcatter Ranch in Graham, TX. I have known Ashley through the wedding world as she assisted my favorite wedding planner & designerJulie Eastman of Extraordinary Events & Design on several weddings I had shot previously. Credit goes to Deitra Butler of Lush Couture Floral for the bouquets, center pieces, and other decorations.

My favorite part of the day was the first look in the courtyard at the First United Methodist Church of Graham. The light was perfect and it was such a great moment as both of their families looked on from the windows in the background. It was a great day, and a great party, congratulations and thanks for having me Ashley & Adam!

Big thanks to Daniel and Sarah for providing me my first ever Austin, TX wedding. It’s amazing that I hadn’t shot a wedding in Austin yet, considering everywhere else I have been to cover weddings in the past.

This was a great start to my Austin wedding career, the wedding was held at The Vineyards at Chappel Lodge south of downtown. The outdoor country location was absolutely incredible. Except for catering and getting ready the entire wedding day was outdoors. We were blessed with a mild Texas fall day and the rest is history.

Please enjoy these photos!

It was privilege to be asked by my friend, and fellow Mizzou Photojournalism graduate, Kara and her husband Andrew to travel to Rockton, IL to document their wedding this past October. I of course said yes immediately, and was treated to one of the finest events I have ever had the opportunity to photograph.

The ceremony and reception was held at an organic apple orchard called Orchard Ridge Farms in Rockton IL. This post covers the Wedding day, from getting ready, the first look and portraits, to the Ceremony and reception. Next I will be posting a peek at our day-after session in downtown Chicago! Kara & Andrew’s chemistry in these photos will blow your mind. Get ready…

It is a great honor to be trusted by anyone to shoot the most important day of their life. But it is an even greater honor when that person is a friend, former classmate, and a photographer himself. Donald was a classmate of mine at the University of Missouri, we often found ourselves photographing the same sports and events on and off campus. We also both started shooting weddings at the same time in College.

He asked me to travel to St. Louis to document his marriage to his beautiful bride Maureen. The wedding ceremony was held at the incredible Little Flower Church in Richmond Heights, MO. This church blew my mind, it is an amazing space. I thought that maybe Donald had discovered this gem while shooting a clients wedding, but it turned out he has worshiped here since he was a kid. We shot portraits at Forest Park and the St. Louis Art Museum, as well as at the campus of Washington University, and finally the reception was held at Moulin Events.

Below are a few of my favorite images, I tried some different post processing techniques on this post and I am pretty happy with how they came out. I almost never convert to Black and White, but I LOVE the results of this technique. Also check out that color on the portraits!

Thanks Maureen and Donald for the great images!

Danielle and Mick were married at the Sheraton Buganvilias Resort & Spa in Puerto Vallerta, Mexico this summer. I have had the honor of shooting at this Sheraton many times over the past three years, and everytime I am there with a new couple I find new amazing places and photos on this property.

I covered the entire weekend for them, from their beach-side rehearsal dinner at the famous La Palapa Resturant on Los Muertos Beach at Sunset, to their ceremony at reception on the beautiful grounds of the Sheraton Buganvilias. Enjoy this selection of photos from their Rehearsal, Rehearsal Dinner, and wedding day.
