Witnessing all of these gorgeous, inspiring, FUN couples get married is the best job I can imagine — I can’t wait to see what 2015 holds.

Thank you x a million to Melissa Toms and Chloe Gilstrap for second shooting with me. See more weddings here.

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that Blake and I got engaged last week! We are majorly excited and still wrapping our heads around the enormity of it all, even though it’s something we’ve talked about for a long time. The ring is so meaningful to me, as the diamond belonged to my late Grandma Rosie and was given to her by my Pa Pa Al in the 1950s. The ladies at Anna Sheffield did such an incredible job setting it in the most delicate little gold band. I can’t stop staring at it!

In celebration of this and in honor of the upcoming proposal season, I’m pulling together some favorite moments from the 21 weddings I shot this year, since I’ve only managed to post a handful here. So be on the lookout later this week! Happy December! :)

In early October, Melissa and I got to witness Adam and Freya celebrate their love with their closest friends and family in Bermuda. After more than a year of planning, not even a day-of venue change due to a surprise tropical storm could rattle them. They went through the events of the day with such ease and lightness, savoring each moment and appreciating everything around them. At recent weddings, I’ve noticed I’m not as emotional as I used to be (read: I’m not crying through the ceremony) as I’ve learned to distance myself a bit in order to fully focus on getting the shot. But editing is a different story — I teared up so many times reliving these moments. (The way they look at each other …!) These two lovely humans are some of the kindest people I’ve ever met, and the mutual respect and generosity they share is something to admire.

Thanks, as always, to my lady Melissa for capturing so many moments with me and thank you(!!!!) Adam and Freya for having us.

Some photos from a night spent sleeping under the stars in Joshua Tree National Park back in March — unprepared for the cold (trying to squeeze into the one sleeping bag we had a mattress pad for), amazed by the sound of coyotes echoing through our campsite, and counting the loooong hours until sunrise and coffee. Still though, it was one of my favorite nights of the trip — the beauty of that landscape is just unreal.

Clark and Beth invited eight family members to White Point Gardens for an intimate wedding ceremony on a gorgeous October evening. It was low-key and perfect, and I’m so happy to have been a part. Congrats, Clark and Beth!
