Jay & Beverly. The Cotswolds Wedding Photographer.

Jay and Beverly used their wedding as an excuse to celebrate/adventure with their family and friends for a full week. It began with their intimate ceremony at the Burgh House in London. I can still remember Jay and Bev trying to gather themselves as they shared their personal vows. At the end of the vows, I was crying like I had just seen The Notebook for the first time. Yeah… it was like that.

When the ceremony ended it was pouring rain, but these two were up for anything so we headed into the mysterious forest for portraits. In the evening, it was an all out feast at The Orange. It was important to Jay and Bev to have a calm/relaxing evening where their family and friends could eat some tasty food and share some stories, memories, and laughter together.

The next morning I took a train to The Cotswolds where Jay was there to pick me up along with a group of their friends. As we started driving through the countryside I was blown away by the beauty there. When we arrived at Temple Guiting, I didn’t know what to do with myself. Let’s just say I was in photo heaven.

The days that followed…we played. There was foraging, tennis, yoga, BBQs, clay shooting, bicycling, hot tubbing under the stars, and good conversation. I can’t say I’ve ever experienced a wedding quite like this.

I love that people are doing weddings in a way that highlights what’s most important to them. It’s time to throw out the templates, the shot lists, the feeling that you have to do something even if it holds no value to you. I feel it’s incredibly important to include things that are significant and meaningful to you as a couple. This year I’ve seen just how unique and refreshing weddings can be when done in a way that centers around what’s most important to a couple.

Thank you Bev and Jay for trusting me and inviting me into your inner circle. I love you guys.

A huge thank you to the awesome Emilie White for shooting this day with me.

Jakob & Alexandra. Sweden Wedding Photographer.

I can’t even begin to explain what an honor it was to shoot this wedding. Jakob is one incredibly talented photographer who shoots weddings all around the world with his company Nordica Photography. Besides being good friends, I have to say that they’ve been an inspiration to me and I’m so happy to see how successful they’ve been at their craft. When I was starting out I remember how much both Jakob and Cole supported me and what I did. They’ve been wonderful people to get to know and I am grateful for having them in my life. When Jakob asked me to shoot his wedding I was blown away. It meant more to me than words can describe.

When I arrived in Sweden I met Alexandra for the first time. She quickly made me realize how badly I needed to exercise. Being a dedicated yoga instructor and fitness enthusiast, I got to see what discipline and dedication was all about. She was also incredibly sweet and both Jakob and Alexandra made me feel like family while I was there. I love you both and I just want to thank you again for trusting me to tell your story.

Thank you to Cole, Therese, and Embla for hosting us at your home and showing us some of the amazing sites around Sweden. You guys are amazing.

Another thank you goes out to my good friend Amari Kenoly for documenting this story with me. I have to talk about this guy really quick. He’s seriously one of the most loyal friends anyone can have. When I need someone I can constantly rely on, he’s my go to. He’s always got my back no matter what and to top it off, he’s incredibly talented. Please take the time to check out his work and show him some love.
