To me, Melissa and Sean’s wedding just screamed stylish and classy. There were so many elements I loved: the tie-clip with the initials of a dear friend lost too early. The makeup artist, Katherine, was insanely good. Holy floral goodness. One of the most energetic, entertaining bridal parties I’ve had in a while. Speeches I got teary over and laughed out loud, and I have no history with the people speaking or being spoken about (that’s a good speech). Sean’s laugh. MIDNIGHT SLIDERS. It was a great day, and I am incredibly thankful to share moments with people as genuine as these two. I mean seriously, what a job. It’s no secret I love a good strong woman (both specifically and literally with my wife, and generally but figuratively with subjects 😉 ), and Melissa is the perfect combination of strength and sweetness. Her portraits just feel so refined and regal. Many years of happiness, friends.

Massive thanks to the always perfect, and recently married Daron Jackson, for shooting with me.

Words of Advice from the bride: Pick a venue that does everything for you! It is so nice to have people on-site, day of, that you can delegate tasks to instead of delegating to your family. I have been to weddings where the mother is setting up chairs before hand and cleaning up after. It’s a day to enjoy and relax, let other people do the worrying. Also, organize everything up front. Budget, look, feel, all of it! The more organized you are up front, the less stressful the process will be down the road, ENJOY & HAVE FUN!
