you have a story to tell
Maybe you happened to sit next to each other on a flight. Maybe you were lab partners in chemistry. Maybe you swiped right. But something happened. Maybe it was overnight; maybe over years. But that little something that started way-back-when is about to change everything.
The truth is: your love, and your story, is a miracle. It’s a gift to this world, and it’s a story worth remembering and celebrating.
When Carlie called me about her wedding in the forest of Oregon, I was sold. Woods, rivers, mountains?! Yes, yes, and more yes.
But more than the incredibly stunning location of Blue River, what made this wedding so special was Carlie and Trey’s hearts for each other, those around them, and most of all their Savior.
It’s really no joke when Carlie’s maid of honor talks about how truly thoughtful Carlie is. When I showed up to my guest room she had a bag filled with goodies and my favorite snacks—which she knew from taking note of my Instagram stories. Who is that thoughtful?!
And Trey. Pretty sure within five seconds of meeting him, you’re positive he’s one of the kindest men you’ll meet, with a heart that truly listens.
Let’s just say #powercouple here. I am so glad I was able to be apart of this day for such a beautiful couple and their families. I know God has good, good things in store for these two and their life together.
Scottie and Nashya’s love has been built around adventuring and exploring together. As rock climbers themselves, they chose a fitting spot for their wedding in one of their favorite places and where they were engaged: Joshua Tree National Park.
These two are just the best. We wandered around climbing rocks, guzzling water, and trying to avoid cacti. But man, oh man—this was worth it.
Not only are these two incredibly fun and sweet together, but they have a deep and profound love for each other and their Savior. A love incredibly beautiful to witness.
I’m SO pumped to share this film and to have captured such a rad couple and day! Congrats Scottie and Nahsya!
Set in the gorgeous low country near Hilton Head, Brooks and Melissa’s wedding looked like something out of a Nicholas Sparks book. Being back in the South again for the day couldn’t have made my heart any happier. From the Southern hospitality everywhere you go, to the sprawling plantation estates surrounded by Spanish moss, to the average alligator just tanning itself on the river bank—I’ve missed this state so much.
Although from New York, Melissa’s parents vacationed in Hilton Head every year growing up, which led her back to the South at USC for her undergrad. There she met Brooks - and the rest is history. It felt really special to be back in the place where they fell in love.
The film speaks for itself in how gorgeous their wedding was, and how loved and respected these two are by their family and friends. I am so grateful for the warm welcome I received throughout the weekend with these two. They've got a beautiful future ahead - Congrats Brooks and Melissa!
“Looking at your here today, I’m having another one of my ‘pinch me moments’. Because I look at you, and I look around us, and I can’t believe this is our life”.
The opening of Brianna’s vows just so perfectly encapsulate for me the wonder and the joy of a wedding day. So much love, so much goodness, so much happiness—this is the stuff we are made for.
On top of that—Brianna gets to marry Tyler—her childhood, Abercrombie model, crush, ha! These two have been so patient for this day through all of the challenges that come with military life, and I was *so* pumped to capture such a gorgeous day for them. Congrats Tyler and Brianna!
How Mo and Steph met is like something out of a rom-com. Mo first noticed Steph in chemistry class. Upon seeing the beautiful girl he was lucky enough to share a class with, he went a step farther and intentionally moved his seat to make sure he was sitting next to her so they could be lab partners. Between lab notes, broken beakers, and notebooks catching on fire, they fell in love—and the rest is history!
These two were so easy to film on their day! They were smiles and grins all day, laughing and joking with each other and us! They were down for anything—even running through a cloud of dust kicked up by the golf carts! #worthit We were so lucky for an incredibly gorgeous sunset for the end of our photos, and danced the night away with friends and family.
These two are sweet, humble, and kind. Congrats Mo and Steph!
Smoke Bombs. Drag Queen. Black Dress. LED Robots.
When Nastasha started telling me about her wedding, I knew this would be one to remember. HOLY SMOKES (pun intended) was I right! I loved the way these two infused their unique style into every aspect of their day. I can’t begin to explain just how awesome this day was—you’re just going to want to watch it for yourself because it’s pretty rad.
Even with all the cool effects and show-stopping sights, these two had some of the sweetest vows to each other. Jon gets choked up right off the bat talking about how long he's known Nastasha was the one for him. Gah, gets me everytime!
I'm so grateful to have been apart of this day and tell their story. Congrats Nastasha and Jon!
People cry when they see my video. Even strangers.
The ability to truly capture a story, to tell it as it should be told, to give it heart, this is a God-given gift. As a cinematographer Regan is a true artist, possessing both these qualities.
My video came out to be perfect, and makes everyone cry, everytime. I've heard from several friends and family that it was the best one they ever saw.
I'm a lover of many things: playing a game of pick up soccer, watching The Office over and over, backpacking with my ruggedly handsome husband, and surfing and scuba diving in warm, tropical water.
But more than my pastimes, my heart is truly passionate about advocating for social justice, getting to make friends from other cultures, and most importantly, using this life I've been given to love God and others by following Jesus.
That’s the list. But if you want to hear more on how I ended up in video and photo...
