Joshua + Stephani | Proposal

So, I got a phone call from Joshua in the middle of July. He said he was planning a proposal for his girlfriend and he wanted a photographer.
They would be driving from Louisiana to Michigan and making a stop at the historic Peabody Hotel for a night or two.
I LOVE proposals, so, of course, I agreed! But I had no idea how beautiful it would be!


He had everything planned down to the minute. And despite the musicians getting stuck in the elevator, everything went according to plan! ;)
It was a beautiful night, they both looked fabulous and it was the spot of their first date, revisited to become even more special.


Stephani walked in and was instantly in tears. I was… I mean… I would be too.
They were welcomed with a glass of wine, then danced to a special song as they were beautifully serenaded.
At the conclusion of the song, Joshua bent on one knee, and well… she said “Yes!”.
The moment she said yes, he directed her attention over the river where he had arranged a professional fireworks show, summoned at the cue of a text message.
How awesome is that?!


I am so honored that Joshua asked me to shoot this. It was truly special! Stephani and Joshua, I wish you two all the happiness in the world!

Jessica + Brent | Engagement

I shouldn’t have to say much about this couple; the images should do all the talking just fine. :)
But these two have an adorable story of meeting each other on the stairs of Juvenile Court (they weren’t the ones in trouble) and well… now here they are!
Their precious dogs, Gunner and Hope, joined us at a beautiful farm of one of Brent’s former employers.

Being around these two is like being around family. They are just so chill and comfortable.
Their December wedding will wrap up the 2011 wedding season and it will be a perfect way to end the year!
