Life is an adventure with so many stories to be lived and told. My passion is telling those stories through my images. I bring to life what I see and feel and pass it along to all those who come across my work. Weddings are full of so much emotion and my goal, my wish, is to capture the true beauty and feeling of every moment so that it's relived forever.

The mighty Mississippi River valley has always been a source of inspiration and dreams, so when I found myself at a wedding along its' banks, I knew something magical was going to happen.

As the reception was in full swing and the guests were having fun, I quietly stole away the bride and groom so that we could spend some quiet time, taking in all of the beauty that the river had to offer. I was so happy with the results.

The north shores of Lake Superior are dramatic and breathtaking, constantly showing its' power and beauty. So when the opportunity came to capture this wedding I was excited at the challenge.

I saw a rock formation jettisoning out from the shoreline and given the wind that was churning up the waters, knew this was the spot for something amazing. I had the couple carefully place themselves as close to the action as possible without putting themselves in too much danger. They knew they would get wet but were excited to hopefully capture the photo I hoped to take.

I told them that once in place, they needed to hold their pose until I said so as I needed just the right wave sequence to come in. After much patience on their part, the perfect wave hit and this was the result.

While setting up for some photos with the ladies, the guys were relaxing upstairs. They heard us below them and we decided to get the groom and have some fun. I love it when everyone is so relaxed and spontaneous and open to having a great time!

There is an old, historic hotel in San Antonio, TX that is truly something to see. While wandering around I came upon this amazing library and instantly knew that this was where the "first look" needed to take place. The groom anxiously awaited as his soon to be bride entered the room and heard her ascending the stairs behind him. The entire scene was magical.

The venue was absolutely gorgeous. Old stone walls, antique rocking chairs, and of course, gorgeous Texas sunsets. This wonderful couple and I strolled the entire place and had so much fun but this was one of my favorites as to me, I could feel the energy and love shared between them both.

The hill, the sea behind, the perfect couple. I told them to climb to the top of a small hill and forget about me...simply enjoy each other. It's times like this that I get lost in a photo and truly feel the love radiating from them and it reminds me why I love what I do so much and feel very blessed indeed.

When I arrived on location I was immediately drawn to the landscape and beauty of the area. Such depth. I was in awe of it. I had the couple forget about me entirely and simply enjoy each other...and this was the result.
