Leah and Eric are seriously good at tennis
This is one of the many things they have in common. They even lived in the same building in New York, and didn’t know it until after they starting dating. I had a great time with these two, and can’t wait for their wedding in Columbia, MO this September. Take a look…

Every time I got together with Alison and Brian in the year leading up to their wedding, it was like a creative brainstorm. They flooded me with “them”-
I love it when people do that! I have to know a couple’s stories, tastes, personalities, the things they hold dear- in order to do justice to recording their wedding day. These two have a romantic view of the world, and “romantic” is such a sappy word, but I mean it in the best sense here- they are people that live with passion and imagination. They laugh loud with their mouths wide open, and they get excited about beauty, expression, experience. Brian has both graffiti and service on the police force in his life story- well rounded eh? Alison was a part of the Renaissance Festival for many years, and it’s evident in the way she moved in that spinning gown. The wedding day was absolutely glorious- under the chuppah that Alison’s dad made in the vibrancy of the Loose Park Rose Garden. The couple had a traditional Jewish ceremony, but added their own beat to every aspect. For example, the hora (the traditional folk dance that involves the couple being raised on chairs) was accompanied by a very surf- rock kind of version of Hava nagila. Their wedding cake was decorated with soft pink roses and jutting thorns. They had these really cool handmade pieces with different words about love, all donned with a punk rock edge. Here are some of my favorites from the day….

I grew to love the Rumsey family over the year that I got to know them shooting their daughter Lucy’s wedding in December of 2006. That was the first time I met Brecken and Andy. Brecken and I had an immediate connection over a shared love of photography, and I knew Andy as Lucy’s kind, laid back brother. It’s always fun to arrive on a wedding day and greet the family with hugs, and “good to see you!”
The forecast for Memorial Day weekend was doom and gloom, but these two have this wonderful attitude of going with the flow. When Ashley and I arrived and saw the billowing grassy fields, and clearing skies ahead, we got giddy and snapped right into that place of creative flow. I know I say this a lot, I guess I just get consistantly great couples, but today was no exception- sincere love, natural beauty. A wonderful day.I just love this first image because I can feel what it felt like to be in that room with the open windows and the May breeze…
Brecken hears Andy’s voice as he arrives…..
