I started working with Victoria and her family about two years ago and from the first time we met you could see the twinkle in Tori’s eye every time she spoke of her wedding. She knew exactly the style she wanted and her ideas paired with her perfect taste came to fruition creating something that looked like it was pulled straight out of a magazine. Both Tori and Jim were easy going during our entire engagement session despite any poses I put them in being somewhat out of their normal realm of canoodling. On their wedding day no matter how busy they were, no matter what song was playing, they were always ready to jump in front of the camera for my requests and it certainly was worth it. Their guests were completely blown away by every detail of their day, as were we. The music, their guests, the incredible florals, and every single detail that played a part in their wedding day was picture perfect.

As you browse through their images you’ll get a feel for Tori’s flawless style and you’ll see the love pouring out of Jim’s face as he looks at his bride, you may even see a few familiar faces (wink, wink). It was easy to see how close and connected these two families and this couple are two each other and just how excited they are for Tori and Jim to start their life together. Tori & Jim, I hope that tropical warm weather is treating you well on your first adventure together as husband and wife! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and many more dreams coming true.

From the first time I talked with Ashley I knew she was going to be one of the sweetest people I’d ever have the pleasure of working with. Both Ashley and Andy have been overly gracious, accommodating (even when we got rained out twice), and so thankful during their entire planning process. For their engagement session we spent the evening together on Boston Harbor in their neighborhood listening to some ocean-side music and dodging the crowds. I couldn’t have ordered a better sunset for our session and now I’m counting down the few weeks we have left until their big Greek wedding! I have absolutely no doubt that from the time I arrive until the evening wraps up, their entire day is going to be wonderful.

Since the age of ten I have had an obsession with the idea of a trip to Napa after watching The Parent Trap two dozen times. When I became a photographer that dream transformed into the dream of photographing a vineyard wedding in Napa and just a few weeks ago that dream came true. Amanda, a business owner who runs a business for female entrepreneurs “She Did It her Way” and travels the world like a champion, contacted me a year ago. She sent over her mind blowing wedding website designed by her very own groom, Mike. I learned all about the couple and came to find that Mike proposed to her after they went skydiving and that is when the planning began. After our 3rd email back and forth I knew we were in for a good party.

V. Sattui Winery was the backdrop of from something out of a fairytale. When I arrived, the Napa landscape was better than I could have imagined it and everything I had hoped it would be. Mike and Amanda may have been one of the most chill, calm, and fun couples I’ve worked with to date. We started at a private home hidden between the grape leaves and made our way to the winery with a twinkle light filled ceremony. We ventured around the grounds with the twenty two person bridal party. To kick off their reception Amanda and Mike danced into their wine barrel lined reception room and broke into what was absolutely the most fantastic first dance I have seen in all 100+ weddings I have photographed. I was told later that evening that Mike was a very experienced ballroom dancer which explained why I was watching a Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers replay with my jaw on the floor. The entire evening was filled with speeches, personalized music videos, slideshows, and full blown dancing. I couldn’t have asked for a better setting, party, or more wiling couple.

Mike and Amanda, thank you for making one of my dreams come true. I can only hope to return to Napa again with another wedding as gorgeous and fun as yours! Congratulations Mr + Mrs.Sallander!
