These two probably thought they were done with me, but then I needed models for the workshop in Yosemite 😉 @_kimw_ and @slackinhigh, words can’t express how much I appreciate you two and how thankful I am to have you in my life. From posing in a wedding dress in front of 20 photographers to convincing me to go out on your highline 800 feet above the valley floor (see my insta stories for more on that - I was terrified!!!) and let’s not forget the epic fort we built in our cabin that last night 😉 this week has been incredible, exhausting, and all the more fun thanks to you two buddies. From spacenets in the desert to alpenglow in Yosemite, I’ll never get tired of photographing you two babes 💕
Does anyone else ever get sweater envy? Well I’m definitely feeling it after seeing Ally’s photos from Aimee and Matt’s engagement session. Such a sucker for an oversized, neutral sweater. Perfect for snugs in public! PS: these two are super adorable! Couldn’t stop smiling while editing tonight!
These two lovelies ✌
Also, side note. @seekingalexi is hosting a giveaway on her page for @babe_lash ! Honestly for any ladies who want boss lashes, go check it out. My comment to her when I saw her natural lashes : "you're eyelashes are freakishly long, but in a good way! " 😂

Drove almost an hour and a half to visit @logeesplants today with this little mama. Is it just me or is taking photos in public places always Such. A. Thing??? Three different cameras and allll the looks 🤷🏼♀️
Apparently it was national drink wine day yesterday and I had no idea! But don’t worry - I unknowingly celebrated 😏🍷 How about you? Double tap if you ❤️ wine! I’m one of those people who convinces themselves to work out so they can drink more wine 🍾
Planning @sarahkazemburgevents we toasted 🥂

Wow! What at a snowy Monday in Minneapolis! Great for curling up on the couch and reading my latest blog post 😏 Go check out the link in my bio for the rest of these Yosemite photos 😍

When your high school best friend marries her long time Aussie love in the most laid back and cozy winter wedding weekend ever, there are not enough adjectives to describe how it feels to be a part of it. Plus- they torched the traditional wedding playbook in all of the best ways (highlights include snow tubbing down the aisle before the outdoor ceremony and hitting the dance floor in he most hilarious 80's one-piece snowsuits). Ari and Alex: you guys have already crammed a lifetime's worth of adventure in the last 9 years. Here's hoping you stay this happy and free spirited for the long haul. I love you both! ❄️
Last week, I embarked on a lil' workshop journey to Yosemite with @thehearnes and @maddiemaephoto and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made for my business. I'm stoked to fan the flame and connect with you amazing like-spirits out there who are amped for adventure and ready to swim against the stream to tell the epic story of a wedding day that feels uniquely YOU. So tell me, what's the wedding or elopement of your wildest adventure dreams?
s/o to these rad lovers for adventuring with us, @_kimw_ and @slackinhigh
And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.

Don’t ever let someone say you can’t do something! I take my hat off to everyone who says “watch me”
8 months ago I quit my full time job to pursue my passion for wedding photography. Scariest decision I’ve ever made but I now I get to live a lifestyle I would dream about every single day! It felt so wrong going to slave my ass off for someone who never appreciated my efforts. Missing all the fun stuff with my amazing family and living like that on repeat! It feels weird saying I’m a full time wedding photographer because it’s nothing like a full time job, it doesn’t seem like a job at all! I’m so grateful for what I do and for all of my clients who make this possible, thank you for letting me express my art through your love! Also none of this would be possible without the support from my beautiful wife ❤️ she’s the one and only behind @truebeautyboutiquenz and if it wasn’t for her being so amazing and following her passion I’d probably still be working a 9-5. Do what makes your soul happy! It will definitely be hard but its never gonna happen if you don’t start. Prove them wrong ✊✌️I appreciate everyone’s support and thank you all for following me on this journey! You guys are RAD ⚡️⚡️
I wonder if my clients now how honored and privileged I feel to be a part of their special, intimate moments! •
Like, honestly, this right here is raw love in all its unaltered ways. No posing here or directions on what to do. This happened naturally and I was seriously happy to have been asked to capture it. •
Monday is back, y’all! Who’s got big plans this week??

Got to hang with these pretty people last night in the desert ✨
I stayed up till midnight for three weeks last year to snag a reservation at this otherworldly place. It was worth it a thousand times over. Our first sleepover in a fire lookout tower was one of the most magical things I've ever experienced, definitely won't be the last. Who would give their left pinky for a photo session here? .
I hear you, I'd be tempted too. But please, don't be so melodramatic. Pinkie removal may not be necessary.
If lookout towers perched on top of the world in utter seclusion sounds like your idea of paradise, a word to the wise: stick around. Soup's cooking.
