A little evening light for Molly & Andrew

The sky is dark and quiet. The stressful, anxiety inducing parts of the day are done, all that is left is the celebrating.

Family Portraits

Of course I remember you – I spend hours talking with you at your wedding, following up with you on email, looking at your face and the faces of all your loved ones as I edited the images from your wedding. And it is one of my biggest pleasures to see you again, with your new kids, your parents, your extended family, your friends, and see how your life has grown since we first met.

That is how I feel every time I get an email like this “You might not remember us – you shot our wedding 2 years ago. Can you take a photo of our newborn?”

  • Adrianne - Love this – thanks for including us!

Modern American Pow Wow

I documented the Ain Dah Yung Center‘s Cherish the Children Pow Wow this spring. It is impossible to color the full feel of being there – the colors, energy, drums, dancing. But I tried to capture some moments that convey the feeling of being there, and some that show the playful modern nature of this Children’s Pow Wow.

Live music, vintage theater, and snow wedding {Susan + Levi}

If music be the food of love, play on.

And so with Susan and Levi’s wedding, a rotating cavalcade of talent took over the stages – from Levi’s family singing group ensembles to acoustic ceremony preludes, to all out rock and roll. Natural, vibrant, and a very true way to celebrate. Also, Susan ordered up some snow (literally – it fell during the first dance) and also in the light snowfall during the evening.

  • Cassandra - Aruba Photographers - Don’t know how you do this but your images are absolutely superb! The lighting in every single image is perfect! Looks like every image is completely staged including lighting setup but obviously they’re not! Great work! Love how you captured the live music. The images almost produce the sound!

  • Natalie Champa Jennings - These are wonderful, Becca! Love the perfume shot towards the beginning. Perfect Varsity collection :)

  • Fotos Boda - So classics and romantic pictures. The live music is perfect for a wedding day.
