Kiersten & Johnnie - Styled Elopement at Lookout Mountain

This Colorado Styled Elopement at Lookout Mountain was dope as all hell. Can we talk about how PERFECT these two are? I’m completely obsessed with them. These were taken during a styled shoot out with Wedding Travelers Co. which you may have heard me talk about before. The beautiful vendor team that put together this shoot is at the bottom as usual.

In Home Elopement in Las Cruces Pt.2

This is my last blog post from New Mexico!! I'm so sad! I really can't thank Andrea and Stephanie enough for allowing me to be a part of such an amazing few days in New Mexico. I got to see a state I had never been to. Meet a bunch of photographers who I now consider to be friends and meet a bunch of hot people that were a pleasure to photograph. It was such a great experience!

If you haven't been to New Mexico you need to go like NOW! It's such a nice place and everyone was so sweet! And....Mexican food. I meaaaaaaan do you need another reason to go? As usual the vendors are below..check them out on Instagram!

Styled Elopement at White Sands National Monument

Alright guys! It's the moment you have all been waiting for!! I know you saw these hotties on my Instagram and Facebook page. And to answer your question....yes these people are real and they really do make people this hot in real life! 

The White Sands National Monument needs to be on everyone's bucket list is it isn't already. It has the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen in my life and they're 360 degree sunsets. The sand is amazing and feels like moon sand because the sand is actually made of crushed gypsum! The sand was cool to the touch even though it was hot as balls in New Mexico. While we were shooting they were actually testing rovers for Mars because it's the closest to Mars' sand in the entire world. The White Sands has 180 species of animals that only habitate at White Sands. Okay...now that this sounds like a third grader's history report...let's look at some hotties!!

The Styling team ( 3 Sisters El Paso ) did such an amazing job putting all the details together! It looks like a wedding right out of Urban Outfitters or something!

Chelsea is probably one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen and Cody ain't so bad either!

Sooooo like anyone else think they should get married for real?

Meagan & Brad - Wedding at The Garrison

Meagan and Brad had their wedding in November at The Garrsion. They were super lucky and had a nice sunny day but were also not so lucky an had a FREEZING day. When I tell you my hands were completely frozen...I'm not kidding. It was hella cold but these two were freaking champs.

We started with detail shots throughout The Garrison. We hung her dress in the bridal suite along with her shoes. Some of their details were very fall-esque such as the skeletons(which I adored byyyy the way).

I started the day by taking getting ready shots of Brad. Hasn't he mastered the GQ look? Both Meagan and Brad were one the most relaxed and calm couples I've ever had.

Following Brad's getting ready shots, I took Meagan's getting ready shots. We started with cute bridesmaids shots on the bed and then Meagan got ready for her first look with Brad!

Meagan and Brad had their first look facing the Hudson River and it was perfect.

Meagan and Brad took their bridal portraits down by the pond at The Garrison and the surrounding areas. Because Meagan and Brad did both the engagement and bridal session we were able to get their photos done super quick!

Following the first look we took some bridal party shots and family shots.

Then it was time for the ceremony! Meagan and Brad had a one of a kind ceremony and a beautiful confetti exit.

Afterwards it was time to PAAARRRTTYYYY!

Maura & Ryan - Engagement Session in New York City

Photographing Maura and Ryan was so much fun! We walked around the city and laughed and joked. We got coffee after..if you know me, that's true love right there. We got to get cute pictures with seasonal Starbucks cups. We got to stalk tourists as they took walking tours through the city guessing which apartment was Monica and Rachel's. We dodged cars as we took cute walking pictures across the street. By the end of their engagement session we were total besties. It was love at first latte! Stay tuned for these love birds' wedding in September 2019!

Alex & Jess - The Thayer Hotel

Alex and Jess got married on a beautiful October day at The Thayer Hotel in West Point, NY. Jess and many of her family members attended the West Point Military Academy so it was a very special place to the two of them. Their wedding story will also be featured on H&H Weddings soon!

Both Jess and Alex got ready in separate rooms with their ladies. Both rooms were full of laughter and love and everyone's emotions were turned up high. From Jess and her girls doing a pyramid, to Alex and her girls doing a champagne toast, both Alex and Jess had the most beautiful moments with their girls.

Jess and Alex saw each other for the first time at the ceremony. During the ceremony everyone was fighting real hard to hold back the tears. Both Alex and Jess were full of smiles and laughter as well. During the ceremony, right after they were pronounced married, Alex got her lipstick all over Jess' face and everyone in the crowd was laughing.

Following the ceremony, we took some portraits with the Saber girls and the bridal party right by the ceremony area.

Afterwards, just the three of us headed all around campus to take pictures in all the same places we took their engagement pictures. We headed to Trophy Point and dodged three other weddings also taking their portraits and then headed over to the reservoir and took some pictures where it was much more quiet.

Following that, it was time to P-A-R-T-Y!!!

Kelly & Nick - Engagement Session at The High Line

It's fitting that I'm blogging these two love bird's engagement session today because today is their wedding day! The three of us walked the High Line and stopped along the way to grab some beautiful shots. The entire time dodging about a billion tourists. Something that's always hilarious about photographing in New York City is that there is always a million people getting in your shot. They'll either stop and stare at what you're doing while simultaneously getting directly in the shot or they'll purposely walk super slow through the shot. Also EVERYONE stops to say congratulations..it's actually super sweet. Following the High Line, we walked down to the water to get some super awesome sunset shots and some more pictures with the skyline. Today these two beautiful souls get married at Crabtree's Kittle House on CINCO DE MAYO!!!! Let the party begin!

Lilly & Mike - Engagement Session at WillsWay Equestrian

Lilly & Mike had their engagement shoot where their wedding will be held. During their engagement shoot we got to hang out with Lilly's awesome horse. I got to pet a dog and a lot of horses. I meaaannnnnn...can you get any better than that??

Meagan & Brad - Engagement Session at Stonecrop Gardens

Meagan and Brad chose to have their engagement session at Stonecrop Gardens. Stonecrop is one of my favorite locations! You have everything from greenhouses to cool architecture to beautiful gardens. During their engagement session, we were completely surrounded with beautiful butterflies! It truly was a beautiful day!

Erika & Pasquale - Red Maple Vineyard

Erika and Pasquale got married on a super hot, out of the ordinary, day in September at Red Maple Vineyard. These two lovebirds were all smiles and had the most infectious smiles that effected everyone around them.

Afterwards, Erika and Pasquale had a sweet first look in between the grape vines that was one for the books.

For their bridal portraits we went and saw ALL the animals that Red Maple has to offer. It was kiiiiind of super amazing.

Their ceremony was at the top of the hill with the view of the valley.

Following the ceremony it was time to party!

After the cake cutting, there was a beautiful firework show for the couple and all of their guests.

Sam & Ash - Masker Orchards

This one is super exciting for me because I am counting down the days until it's fall again!! Sam and Ash took their engagement pictures at Masker Orchards where Ash works! We had the entire Orchard to ourselves, it was so magical. Take a look!

Brittany & Garrett - CV Rich Mansion

Brittany and Garrett got married at CV Rich Mansion. As you may remember, Kelly and Joey also got married there. Brittany and Kelly are lifelong BFFS! These two have been besties practically since birth. So it was no surprise that they got married at the same location, just a few months apart from each other. Brittany and Kelly not only managed one DIY wedding, they managed two! I hope you'll enjoy flipping through as much as I enjoyed photographing!

First, I took Brittany's details all around the grounds of CV Rich. Fun fact: All of Brittany's details, besides her dress and shoes, were her late Grandmother's.

Brittany got ready in the bridal suite upstairs, while Garrett got ready in the library downstairs.

They had their ceremony at a nearby church in White Plains.
