I capture the unspoken — the glances, the silences — drawing from New York's pulse and the richness of global cultures. Every wedding is its own intricate narrative. Rooted in theatre and life's everyday rhythms, I document moments both transient and timeless.

Wedding at Rock Creek Gardens

Wedding at Rock Creek Gardens

Who? : Jocinda + Keith

What? : Outdoor garden ceremony and tented reception

Where? : Rock Creek Gardens in Puyallup, Washington

When? : August 2017

Being hired to photograph the wedding of another wedding photographer is an extraordinarily huge honor.  Jocinda and Keith are both photographers, which made the honor doubly incredible.  I was blown away by the beauty of Rock Creek Gardens, the incredibly sweet way Jocinda and Keith are around each other, and the sheer brilliance of the light in Puyallup.  The air had a dreamy haze because of wildfires in Canada, and everything shimmered in the unseasonably warm temperatures.  Jocinda and Keith planned a day with beautiful details, plenty of time for sweet portraits, a faithful and heartfelt ceremony, and a reception under a crisp white tent.  It was a gorgeous day, made even more beautiful by the two amazing people who were married under that brilliantly hot Washington summer sun.

Here is a slideshow teaser of the day:
