Ashton Creek Vineyard Wedding | Erin & Andrew

October 5, 2016



Erin & Andrew’s Ashton Creek Vineyard Wedding was such a beautiful day. This was one of those weddings that I had been looking forward to for so long! Erin & Andrew are extremely dear to my heart, and a couple that will leave a lasting impression. These two sweethearts have a love for Christ and that shows in their friendships and how they treat others. It was just yesterday that Erin was at my bridal shower and had given me the sweetest gift that she had made; A wooden frame that had wires across it with encouraging notes hung from many close friends. I was so touched that she would take the time to make it for me. That priceless gift will forever hang on our walls. When I got to know Andrew I thought, “What a perfect match for Erin.” Both sweet, gentle people who love immensely.
Their day was perfect- seriously, perfect. The weather was on the verge of fall so it wasn’t hot but it wasn’t cold – just right.  The vineyard was gorgeous and the grapes were just beginning to turn.  Loved ones from all over showed up to partake in the sweet love of these two and tears were flowing.
I keep saying it over and over but honestly, the feeling at this wedding was different. Everyone felt like family. A lot of people from our church that I admire were there and people came from near and far to send off these college sweethearts into the next chapter of their life. It was was a beautiful day to be a part of. Congrats Erin and Andrew.

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
