“He felt now that he was not simply close to her, but that he did not know

where he ended and she began.” — Leo Tolstoy

I have to admit something. There are times when I feel like if I don't use words to explain the story behind my images I'm afraid the stories won't be told. I've been doing this for a long time now - but I'm still insecure about my images. That's top secret - but it's true. I love what I do, and I know that I'm able to do it in a way that provokes a lot of emotion for a lot of people (which is wildly humbling) but when it's all said and done I live in fear that my words are what sell it in. I tend to write so many things about my couples to explain where my mind was during their wedding day and express all of the little moments but here's the kicker - I so badly want for the images to tell the whole story. Here's my point - for the 40 something state's I've shot in, and the 400+ weddings I've been at 2016 for me is a turning point for me. I'm determined to tell the same stories, but to tell them more and more with the images and to get past my need to over talk about them.  In the spirit of all of this I'm going to hope that if you've made it this far you know that this day was a dream. I'm so in awe of these photos and these people and so grateful that you took the time to look through them.
