Wedding photographer, photography coach and lover of lazy cabin weekends and good company

Having the chance to wear your wedding dress again is seriously the best. The day goes by so quickly and before you know it, the dance is over, your guests have left and you’re packing up the car to head home. I was thrilled when Alex reached out to do a wreck the dress session! We chose the beach for her and Kyle’s shoot because there’s nothing more dreamy than a Matlock Beach adventure session! The soft glow as the sun goes down and a sunset I will never forget!

Valerio and I did a wreck the dress shoot right before we left Tijuana Mexico on our honeymoon and it was so fun! We got to dress up again and dance around in the dust and heat of the Mexican winery we were at. It was like getting to relive our day just a little bit more!

If running around in a pretty place in your dress with your hubby sounds like something you’ve been craving, send me a message HERE! We can plan a fun and relaxed adventure session with you and your love! Let’s go somewhere that is special to just the two of you or a place you’ve always wanted to go!
