Lauren and David bought their children and parents over from Perth, Australia to marry in a intimate ceremony at Thorncrown Chapel in the little town of Eureka Springs in Arkansas. They celebrated in the evening with a dinner at Crescent Hotel. It was such a lovely day to document for this sweet family.

Last August took me to Mallorca, one of the Balearic Islands off Spain to document Sarah & David’s destination wedding. Their close friends & family came down from England to celebrate and they hired out a beautiful house in the countryside near Inca, where the evening celebrations took place. Sarah & David had their ceremony in up in the little village of Fornalutx at a little boutique hotel called Can Verdera. David is an amazing wedding photographer, so it was an honor he asked me to photograph his wedding. Not a terrifying experience at all ;)

Last September I headed over to Italy to document Daniela & Remo’s wedding day near their home town of Terracina, just a few hours south of Rome. The wedding took place at Abbazia di Fossanova, an amazing Cistercian monastery built around 1135.

My dear friend Kelly Tunney was in the neighborhood (England) the week prior so with a little tempting with a few days in Venice and surviving the crazy drive out of Rome to Terracina (mostly thanks to her great navigating skills), she helped second shoot this wedding with me.  The hospitality that Daniela & Remo showed us was amazing.. we have never been so well looked after (and fed!) in our lives. I had to go on a 3 day juice detox when I got back to New York to recover :)

I have photographed many Italian weddings in Australia.. but this took my idea of what an Italian wedding was to a whole new level… a 7 course dinner, many many many toasts, a crazy amount of dancing and a toilet paper covered get away car :)

Yesterday I headed to a sky suite at the London Hotel in Manhattan to document behind the scenes for the Sareh Nouri 2015 Spring Collection on behalf of Burnett’s Boards.  The New York International Bridal Week took place over the weekend, where designers from around the world come to NYC to showcase their latest designs. It was a fun hour photographing these pretty models.
