A couple months ago I had a great portrait session with Melinda and Derek. We took a casual stroll through the Arboretum on a perfect afternoon. You can really see their playful and fun personalities shine through in these images. I love how genuinely happy they look!

Derek and Melinda were just married and we’re currently wrapping up editing their wedding photos. Stay tuned for those!


As a photographer there is no better compliment than to get a referral from a past couple. Stephanie is the sister of one of my past grooms, Jeff. I first met Stephanie and Brett at Stacey and Jeff's wedding where Stephanie was a bridesmaid. Its always fun to work with people that already feel like family. I am super excited for their wedding that is going to be at Evermore next September.
