From the Photographer: “It’s impossible to put into words how special this couple is. It’s something you feel immediately just watching them occupy the same space together: they have created a special language for their love and it’s a privilege to see it in action. Lindsey & Jeremy’s wedding was one of the most unique celebrations we’ve been fortunate to have been a part of and we are so grateful to them for including us as part of this process.”
What a fun shoot! This playful outdoor NYC engagement is PERFECT to kick off Valentine’s Day weekend! Kendra and Jeremy are were good friends for a long time and decided to try something new. These two musicians went looking for love and found it…in each other. When asked what they loved most about each other, Jeremy said “Kendra is beautiful on the inside and out. She doesn’t hesitate to apologize and always fights on my behalf if necessary.” Kendra loves that Jeremy is a go-getter, a man of his word and that he loves to laugh and joke around. When a friendship is genuine, it shows. Wishing Kendra and Jeremy love and light as they journey into the new year and marriage together.
At first glance this looks like a chic styled shoot…but it’s not! It’s an absolutely glorious Houston arboretum wedding. Julie and Dylan LOVE the outdoors. So much so that they opted for a gorgeous indoor/outdoor reception at the Houston Arboretum. They had awesome and inventive seating, a bluegrass band and creative centerpieces that were a nod to their law school days. Everything was lovely and full of so much grace and style.

To hear the photographer tell it, this wedding was absolute perfection! Joselyn got ready at her family home, which was filled with strong faith and love. Her mother helped adjust her veil before she watched her little girl walk down the stairs one last time sharing the same last name. Joselyn’s Galina Signature gown from David’s Bridal was gorgeous and traditional, with lots of ruffles. She wore a heart shaped pearl rosary, representing her faith. A vintage white chariot whisked the bride to be away to meet her groom.

Brooke and Ricky just knew they found an amazing photographer in Paige of Apaige Photography. Paige had a freak accident and was attacked by a dog. She was hospitalized and her face is still healing, but thankfully she is okay. What I really want to highlight is her client’s response. Brooke sent Paige an amazing letter of compassion and support to her photographer. It turns out that she too survived a dog attack and wanted to show her that she was not alone. Paige refers to to them as “beautiful souls” and souls like those are always the most fun to photograph.
Brooke and Ricky have set a wedding date for September 17, 2016.
Location: Medevi Brunn, Sweden
Jocelyn is from France and Agnes is from Sweden. Before he proposed (in Paris!), the two spent most of their days working and saving up to buy plane tickets. It was worth it, and they had the most romantic and intimate wedding in the picturesque town of Medevi Brunn in Sweden. Champagne was imported from France, and sweet strawberries were garnered from a local strawberry farm (strawberries are a Swedish midsummer tradition). The architecture in Medevi Brunn is stunning; many of the houses and buildings date back to the 17th or 18th century and they are usually nestled among leafy, majestic trees.
The bride loves blue (and it’s a common color in both of their countries’ flags!) so pretty blue details were incorporated throughout. The couple chose to do a first look followed by a portrait session. Two countries, one love!
Throwback to summer with this dreamy, breezy August wedding! Galen and Matthew wed at Connecticut College Arboretum. Galen wore a simple silk gown and Matthew donned a woven navy blue suit. Guests joined the couple and celebrated on the water at the Mystic Museum of Art, a modern, for a gorgeous reception filled This wedding screams rustic simplicity and best of all? It was captured on film by Analog Wedding. This dreamy summer arboretum wedding is true perfection, squared.
Location: Grand Central Station + Central Park (New York)
Ynez + Allen | The Story
I love a sweet love story and this one is it!
“We first met in high school back in 2004. We were both part of the leadership class and bonded while having a “deep” talk about life during a doughnut fundraiser. We dated throughout high school, going to every prom together, and even dated while attending different colleges, until we eventually received both of our Master’s Degrees from the same school, on the same day, at the same ceremony. Throughout that time, our favorite show to watch was Gossip Girl (centered on the socialites of the Upper East Side). Allen secretly wanted to have an engagement shoot in NYC, inspired by the characters and places of the show. After we both obtained full time jobs, Allen gathered our high school friends and coordinated with our leadership teacher, who still teaches in the same classroom, so that he could propose in the classroom where we first met. Everything fell together perfectly, with posters lining the hallway of an N’SYNC a song we used to listen to. Ynez said “Yes!” and we will now be getting married on the day of our 12th year anniversary.”
Devyn and Daniel had their wedding at the majestic and historic Newhall Mansion in California. Set smidst lush and colorful gardens, it was a magnificent setting for this timeless affair. Bright and modern pops of color intermingled seamlessly with vintage details. Devyn looked amazing in her beaded lace gown with sweetheart neckline. She embraced the organic chic succulent trend i by adding them to her bouquet!
