Angela & Rob | U.S. Virgin Islands

Two photographers, two planners and 20 guests. Angela knew what she wanted and wasn't willing to settle.
Photography was the most important thing so she hired the amazing Katie Thurmes with Jenna Walker Photography and I had the wonderful pleasure of accompanying her as a second shooter. Between you and me, Katie *really* had to twist my arm to go to the islands for a week. ( yeah, I'm that girl who sacrifices for her friends.... wink wink)

Now that wedding season is in full swing, I am reminded each weekend what an honor it is to be invited to tell the preamble to the beginning of a new adventure. That overwhelming sense of adulation never gets old.

I have more editing to do, but I was so antsy to blog... Here are a few fun ones :)



My absolute FAVORITE part of each wedding is the groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time...







man, I love me some details... Ellen and Katie from Weddings Elegantly Designed did a fantastic job!




Goodness, what a wonderful wonderful wedding. Special thanks to the Roy family for welcoming us with open arms! (hugs to you Marissa!) And much love to my 'Bustop and Balconies' tour partner Katie. I adore you.

The flight to my next adventure leaves in 4 hours and I have yet to pack... I have 4 shoots this weekend so stay tuned! :)

Oh Shyla...how amazing! I don't even know where to start. First, I think I would have to say I owe Katie a million thanks for finding you. I am incredibly lucky that I had BOTH of you shooting our wedding. There could not have been a better team than you and Katie. You both are so talented, and your pictures are as amazing as you are sweet and kind. Our whole group really enjoyed getting to know you both, and I can't express enough gratitude for capturing our memories the way you did. You know how much photography means to me, and to have pictures like this to remind us of this day is more than I could have hoped for. And these are just a few!!! I can hardly wait to see the rest! Thanks again for everything! You are wonderful!!!
