Katy + Jared: A Super 8mm
Wedding At Broadwater Farm

Broadwater Farm isn’t just a working farm or a farm-turned pastoral venue. It’s the childhood home of Katy and the Andersen family,  tucked in the rolling hills of the Phoenixville country-side. We’ve posted several times about Katy and Jared and their wedding. All of it is true…the beautiful landscape, the herds of sheep and cattle, the rare sighting of the hermetic […]

Montana Boho Styled Bride

The open sky with an endless parade of clouds, the wheat undulating under the hot wind, sending wave upon wave of gold around my knees. Layers of mountains in the distance and the sharp sweet smell of sagebrush at my feet. Montana is home and it’s where I feel my truest self. Dutch and I photographed Christine a few weeks ago […]

Fernbrook Farms Engagement Session: Jackie + Tim

I love when the couples we’re photographing can relax and look at each other in a way that’s real, not because I asked them to, but because they are together at this very moment in the golden sun. It’s not easy to be photographed, or maybe it’s not easy to forget that you’re being photographed. […]

A Super8 film on the Russian River

It’s September on the Russian River in Guerneville, California. What could really be better then shooting a friend’s wedding here?

Chadd’s Ford Wedding:

I always love when a bride gets ready in her childhood home, it lends such warmth to the photos. Old stuffed animals on the bed and first place ribbons on the wall, it’s touching to see those details as she steps into her wedding gown. Emilee and Jason got married at a dear friend’s horse […]

Welkinweir Estate Wedding:

The pastoral Welkinweir Estate is as beautiful as they come for an outdoor Pennsylvania wedding. It’s rustic and secluded, full of old towering trees, and almost big enough to lose yourself in.

Dana and Nick’s wedding at Faunbrook Bed & Breakfast was about as DIY as it gets.
