Angie & Chris | Longview Mansion

Angie & Chris…. both Barbie & Ken in human form. This wedding was so very earthy, down to Chris creating the wood chips and Angie burning their initials into them, to the moss growing around the centerpieces. The weather was a lovely spring day, weather that everyone wishes to have on their wedding day. And […]

Brooke & Enrico, New Zealand |Proposal

This couple.. man they have stories. I admire couples who enjoy the roses around them, who travel the world, experience new things,  love like there’s nothing else to do in the world, and laugh like kids together as if no one else is around.
