This wedding at The Venue Hall in St. Amant is going to go down as one of my favorites. For real. Weddings are all about the people in them, for me. When I’m photographing, I’m always thinking about the story I’m telling. Not just for the people in the images, but also for the family to […]

I talk a lot with my clients about what documentary wedding photography really means, and how it affects their day (or doesn’t, really). These guys were a couple who just got it, right away, and […]

Planning the little details for your wedding day can be completely overwhelming, I know. It seems like every time you turn around, there’s another decision to make.
