Nahrae + Travis

Roxbury, NY

I awoke in a drafty country house in the Catskills to a golden field frozen over in glittering frost.  A bitter October morning with promising sunshine streaming through the autumn trees, I layer up and grab my camera to snag some frost shots.  As the morning wore on, the frost began to melt and I made my way back inside to warm up with some coffee and prep my gear for the wedding ahead.  Nahrae + Travis came to me at the perfect time a few months ago inquiring about their wedding date and that particular weekend had just opened up, lucky for both of us!  With their awesome energy and down to earth vibes, I instantly fell for these two long distance champs who met while serving in the Peace Corps.  When they said they were getting married at one of my favorite venues, The Roxbury Barn, that officially sealed the deal.  As I pulled up to the site, I'm greeted by a friendly face, Casper, who owns and runs this beautiful rustic estate.  From there, we jumped right in, anxious to capture this most gorgeous day.  Nahrae + Travis made everyone feel at home, and were never short of laughs throughout the day.  From their romantic and intimate woodland ceremony, to the cozy barn for food + festivities, followed by a full moon and bonfire on the hill.  What a perfect way to end this wonderful wedding season!
I adore you two!

Ryan + Kendal

Dacula, GA

I flew into Atlanta on a warm autumn afternoon, beyond excited to partake in the festivities about to begin at Oak Meadow Acres, the family farm in Georgia.  Yes, I was ready for their wedding day, but I was equally excited for the big concert Friday night, an evening of song directed by Kendal's brother Joel and performed by their talented friends + family, from folk to broadway.  The rain did not stop the Friday festivities, if anything it only heightened the romantic fall day.  The next morning, with the resident rooster touting his call bright and early, I awoke in time to register the bray of the family donkeys, who apparently were ready for the big day as well.  The farm, a cacophony of sounds and excitement as family and friends worked their magic behind the scenes, I felt lucky to be in the midst of such love and joy from everyone involved.  A lake view ceremony, cocktails on the lawn followed by a good old-fashioned southern barbecue and dancing under the stars, I couldn't imagine a more perfect wedding for these two.

Ryan + Kendal I feel lucky to know you.  You are two truly special human beings.

Let the adventure begin...
