Make yourself at home & get a taste of all the adventure

I absolutely love photographing rehearsal dinners. There is something so special about the excitement and anticipation in the air preparing for the next day.

Travel is in our blood. My husband, Chip, & I met & started dating as wee little babes (see below) while studying abroad in Sevilla, Spain, even though we grew up 20 minutes from each other and had countless mutual friends in college.

Oh, this session is just simply the loveliest. Kemper: a stunningly beautiful bride – inside and out. And then put her in this setting, and holy cow.
