Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

Kathryn & Will

I am crying and laughing and oohing and ahhing and emailing with my girlfriends back and forth about which ones are our favorites!!! I cannot believe them!! You are amazing. Everyone wants you to just follow them around in day-to-day life. These are absolutely breathtaking. There is so much to look at that I just didn't see or don't remember. Thank you for capturing that!!

I just finished looking at all those pictures...AMAZING!!!!!! You do an awesome job!! So many people tell you beforehand that the day is going to just fly by and to cherish every moment. When you're in the moment you realize how much fun you are having but when it's all done you really do realize how quick it all just went by. So thank god for your pictures! You allowed us to go back to that day and remember so many good things (some of which I don't even remember--ha ha). There are so many great ones, it is going to take me a while to figure out which ones are my favorites!
