Mike and Melissa Sottile at The Waterview


Mike and Melissa reached out to me to do their engagement shoot and wedding last year. We caught the very last autumn leaves left on the trees on an early morning. It was a fun shoot then, and it was awesome meeting these two, and becoming a part of their lives for forever. This wedding went straight to my heart. Watching Mike choke up during his vows, and Melissa’s joy and laughter throughout the ceremony. Sometimes you just know when you are a part of something special. And this was one of those special ones…

I want to say thank you Mike for his service. I remember during his best man’s speech, everyone hooted and hollered for Mike feeling blessed to have him safely home and a part of their lives. It was such a touching moment.  Thank you Mike for all you gave, and all you have done for our country!

The Wedding of Kyle and Cara
I was lucky enough to shoot the wedding of Kyle and Cara Kilroy. For those of you who don't know. Kyle has been my friend since I was all of 3 years old. This wedding was heartwarming and beautiful. When I watched Kyle shed some tears as his beautiful bride walked down the aisle, I had to do everything I could to stop myself from doing the same. Nothing makes me happier, than seeing one of my oldest friends this happy. When Kyle and Cara first approached me to shoot their wedding, I was hesitant, I was worried my feelings would get in the way, wanting nothing more than to share their special day with them. The more I thought about it, the mor ...

Nick and Holly – Chez Josef Wedding
Nick and Holly, what can I say, it rained all morning on your wedding day, and then the sun opened up and it was a perfect day! I met Nick and Holly in the fall of 2013 for their engagement shoot, and it was an instant match. We definitely had a great time at that shoot, and their wedding was even better. A great group of people came together to celebrate the marriage of a perfect couple. My favorite part of it all, is that it won't end here, I know for years to come we will be in touch, including when we get Nick in his jeep to splash some mud on your dress in our "trash the dress" shoot! I wish I had more words to share, but for some reason ...
