This is the girl with the gorgeous eyes and I fall in love with her more and more every time I photograph her!

A wedding and the first snow of the season!

Congrats to this classy couple on their recent wedding 🙂  It was, by far, one of my top three favorite venues ever – Salvage 1.  Great evening all around!

Oh the light and the faces!

The BEST light to shoot in is the “golden hour” that happens right before sunset. Photographers fight for it in the more popular locations 🙂  This shoot is one of my favorites from the 2014 fall season!

Blue eyes!

Photographing bright blue eyes always gets me excited and this family tops the list of best eyes! Thanks for being troopers and braving the bitter cold that day 🙂
