I want to thank the awesome team at Junebug Weddings for including an image from Maiko & Arthur’s Ayana Resort Bali Destination Wedding as part of their Best of the Best Destination Wedding Contest in the honorable mention category. I must admit that Ayana is one of the most beautiful resorts in the world, and an absolute dream location for a destination wedding! I can’t wait to shoot another wedding there, or anywhere in that part of Asia!

I should also mention that the actual wedding was held at Donna Karan’s private estate on the island, which was breathtakingly gorgeous!! Here’s a little sneak peek…can’t wait to share more soon…xo

This was such a special wedding for me. Three years ago, I photographed Jamie’s sister’s wedding. I just adore this wonderful family!!  They have been through so much together, and I love how close they are…I’m pretty sure I cried during their dad’s speech at both weddings:)Jamie & Sam got married at the Omni hotel in downtown Nashville. It was such a beautiful day, and we were able to explore downtown nashville and the Parthenon before their ceremony. Here’s some highlights of their wedding day, as well as a few of Jamie’s bridal images from Cheekwood Country Club. Congratulations, Jamie & Sam! Thank you for letting me a part of this very special day! I feel like part of the family:)xox
