Imagine your wedding day. An intimate ceremony overlooking lake norris, scattered with boats pulling up to watch as you wed your best friend. Hidden among the trees with the bright sun shimmering over the blue water. It’s summertime, and you’re ready to dance the night away in style! Well, that’s what happened for Abbey + Chuck and it was gorgeous. Every detail of their day was perfectly planned (with photography in mind). Abbey and I knew each other from modeling together, so I was really excited to photograph her big day. I knew she’d rock the camera, which she did. She also brought a lot of her vendors with her from home to make sure they were a good fit. I highly recommend this!

I photographed this wedding years ago, and I still love the photos today. I’m a big fan of documentary (natural) wedding photos because they are timeless. If you choose a photographer with really stylized photos, eventually what’s on-trend right now won’t be cool anymore. With that in mind I try to keep a very classic look to my editing and compositions. Including images of family and friends and documenting special moments between them to tell a story.
