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

Mari and Nathan got married at the private Hawskview Estate in St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. They were surrounded by just 30 of their closest friends and family with the backdrop of the Caribbean as they spoke their vows, but this wasn’t just your typical storybook destination wedding.  The gravity of getting to this day and capturing the ultimate story of unconditional love was beyond incredible and overwhelming. Mari is my beautiful cousin and  just prior to their wedding in St. John, Mari had undergone her 4th brain surgery in her battle against brain cancer. Just after her surgery, Mari had to learn to walk again, and with Nathan by her side every step, these two overcame incredible odds to get to this wedding day just one month later. Early on, Nathan had said that he felt like he was put on this earth to take care of Mari. I can’t even type that without crying because that is exactly what he has done. Today…two surgeries already since their wedding, he sleeps by her side in ICU. I know I speak for our family and all of those who love Mari when I say that I am incredibly grateful for Nathan and I really do believe he is an angel. The selfless love and care that he has given Mari is beyond anything I have ever witnessed. As he repeated the vows from my Mom (the officiant) we all balled our eyes out, “Do you Nathan choose Mari to be your partner in life, to support and respect her in her successes as well as her failures? To care for her in sickness and in health? To nurture her and to grow with her throughout the seasons of your life together?”  Enough said.

Mari…I love you so much my strong and beautiful cousin and Nathan, thank you for answering the call. xo

  • Flora Padilla - What an amazing story of love! So beautifully captured… Blessings to you and your family!

Last week I went to New York City to meet up with Lauren & Jonathan for such a fun engagement session. Shooting in NYC is always inspiring and spending the day exploring it with these two was amazing! I’m really looking forward to their East Coast Estate wedding next month! xox

I love the desert, so when Kelsey suggested we do their engagement shoot at Andy’s parents Bighorn estate property in Palm Desert…I was all in! I had so much fun riding around in golf carts photographing these two beautiful people. Super excited for their upcoming summer wedding at the gorgeous Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes! xox

From our first meeting when we discussed their ideas for a Redwood Forest engagement session and their wedding plans in Sonom, I knew I was going to love working with Trina & Dalip! They are such a kind, fun and super funny couple, and it felt like we became fast friends from the start. It was so difficult to narrow down images here because there was SO much meaningful detail, incredible energy and emotion from beginning to end. You would never know that there was a huge storm that came through the weekend of their wedding. The rain stopped just in time for their Barat and created a spectacular storm cloud backdrop for the festivities. They had a combined Sikh and Hindu ceremonies, followed by a reception at the beautiful Jacuzzi Family Vineyards…it was an incredible celebration! I’m so happy for you Trina & Dalip, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this very special day! xox
