Lydia & Brad’s wedding took place in late October after an early and very unusual cold front blew over the East Tennessee mountains. We were met snow covering every inch of RT Lodge on the morning of the wedding and even though it all melted quickly, the bitter cold lasted throughout the day. The best part of the event was the way everyone embraced the weather and relished in the beauty that came along with it. The wedding gushed with that familiar feeling of excitement you get when the seasons change, the heat finally dissipates and you are surrounded by close friends and family.

It is an honor to have this wedding published in the 4th edition of Geraldine Magazine!

The talented, Nashville based musician, Andrew Ripp, asked me to come take some photos of him for his upcoming album. This shoot ended up being quite the challenge because we only had about an hour of daylight left when we started shooting, but it forced me to think outside the box. I also think it gave the final images a very diverse look for Andrew to pull from. I shot color and black and white film using natural light, an off camera strobe and an on camera flash which really changed up the vibe from image to image. I also incorporated some “toy” cameras like the Holga and the Lomo to drive home the gritty look in some images, but I also shot with my beautiful Rolleiflex, Contax and Leica to capture the more crisp images with deep colors. Overall, I loved how these turned out!

This past Spring, I was fortunate enough to get the chance to explore the rugged, rocky and fenceless state of Alaska. It was the furthest North I had ever traveled and I was overtaken with awe at each bend in the road. The Spring in the north country lends itself to a wild energy as the land wakes from its frozen winter slumber. Everything about Alaska felt so alive and so wild which made me feel so alive and so wild, but I also knew I was at its mercy. I knew that there was nothing safe or tame about this land and, to me and my comfortable, controllable, routine city life, this was incredibly refreshing!

These are some of my favorite images from my trip! I can’t wait to head back someday! Thanks to Richard Photo Lab for the beautiful film scans.

Lost Love is a photo essay focusing on the invisible shift that happens when we suffer. After walking through my own dark valley and emerging on the other side, I wanted to create a personal project around the emotions that I felt. Donald Miller said it perfectly in his most recent book Scary Close, “There are pruning seasons in life and there are growing seasons. When I look back on my life, I can tell the greatest growth comes right after you get cut back.”

Unlike most couples on the morning of their wedding day, Katherine and Rob were ecstatic when they woke up to find out that it was raining at the foot of Monteagle Mountain. This meant that the campus of Sewanee, located at the top of the mountain, would be covered with the iconic fog that has become associated with The University over the years. Having both gone to school here, they couldn’t think of a more fitting forecast for their celebration.

It was such a pleasure working with the talented girls of Big Events Weddings who designed the event and implemented all of the beautiful florals.

Alison & Andrew were married on Halloween night in one of my favorite cities in America, Austin, Texas. Alison prepped for her big day at the beautiful and luxurious Hotel St. Cecilia. The day before the wedding the forecast called for heavy rain and tornados… it was so bad that the storm flooded the air traffic control towers in Austin and my team and I were diverted to Houston on Friday morning. We had to rent a car and drive 3 hours to barely make it in time for their rehearsal dinner. Fortunately and quite miraculously, the clouds parted and the sun actually broke out for the majority of the wedding day – no one could believe it! Throughout the weekend, I enjoyed getting to know both the Langdon and Vicker’s families. They could not have been any more kind and accommodating to me and my team. I left feeling inspired to love my friends and family in a deeper, more passionate way and to try to enjoy life to the fullest. I can’t wait to travel to Maine this coming October to document Alison’s brother’s wedding, which I know will be another beautiful celebration!
