Destination Wedding Photos: Ace Hotel & Swim Club / Palm Springs
I have no words for this day!  The tag for the wedding was #loveequalsmorelove and that's the way to best describe this whole weekend... the love was multiplying. I traveled to Palm Springs to take Sandra and Adrian's destination wedding photos, but left with much more than film. I am so in awe of these incredible people, their deeply special friends, and the incredib[...]

A Rainy Day with Plants
This weekend I'm in DC for an engagement shoot, but I had an extra day to explore.  Spent the morning in the conservatory at the US Botanic Gardens and absolutely fell in love.  Ever since I read the book Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney as a child, I've had this weakness for conservatories.  I love the warm, humid air, the plant and dirt smell[...]
