I met Suzanne and Greg for the first time on their wedding day. It’s always amazing how love shines through, you can’t hide it. Despite not knowing them before that day, it was so easy to see and feel how grateful and fortunate they both felt to be marrying one another. Someone recently told me, one of the the key factors that makes a relationship work is that both people feel lucky to be with the other person. They both feel like they’ve won. Neither person can feel like they are the better catch and they have more to offer. I sensed that about Suzanne and Greg. They looked at each other and spoke about one another in such a way that they knew they had found someone they will be honored to walk through life with. I’m thrilled for them! Congrats to you, Suzanne and Greg!

Mark & Erica, or as their wedding hashtag said: ‘merica. Get it? These two kept me laughing all day. Erica is hilarious, definitely one of the funniest brides I’ve ever been around. She kept me laughing all day. Even during the ceremony she was cracking up her bridesmaids. Aside from the jokes and laughter, Erica and Mark were a great and comfortable match, the type of couple you know will last. They balanced one another out and adored each other. It showed in every part of the day. I also always know a couple that plays together that much will definitely have a long and happy life.
One of my favorite moments was at the end of the ceremony when Erica and Mark turned towards the crowd to soak in the moment as husband and wife. Erica welled up with tears, and in that moment, a big monarch butterfly landed on her bouquet and it hung out for a couple seconds before fluttering away. It was so cool!
Congrats to these two!

Oh Lucy! You did not disappoint! I’ve been seeing photos and hearing about this little bundle of joy for months. I photographed Lucy’s parents, Emily and Cameron, years ago for their engagement and wedding. It’s been incredible to see their love grow and their passions take flight with their home building business, Curtis Homes. I knew them just as things were starting to take off, and over the years, they have continued to thrive as a couple, and now as a family with baby Lucy. They’re fun, playful and wonderful people. Some of the best I know. I’m so happy for them and their incredibly adorable and equally sweet daughter.
