Jessica and Drew are such good friends of ours and we were honored to photograph their wedding day. Jessica was my first bride to also use my styling and art direction services. It was so much fun to be such a big part of Jess and Drew’s day and really help guide them to find their style and what they love. We started with the engagement session and we found the perfect location and outfits that they felt extremely confident in. We worked together on details for the bridal party and the reception and everything came together so beautifully. Are you looking for this kind of direction for your wedding day?
