Words cannot begin to express how honored I am to have been selected to contribute a story to one of the first issues of Cottage Hill Magazine.  Cottage Hill is an emerging magazine in the wedding industry, by renewing our feelings towards weddings by infusing a sense of community with marriage.  On Cottage Hill, “you will never find the words “perfect” or any “top ten” lists in our posts – we will not add to the noise of declaring perfection as the standard. Just beautiful photographs accompanied by meaningful words.”

In addition, I feel so privileged to have been given this amazing opportunity to work with some of the most sought after professionals in the wedding industry:

Floral and Creative: Hey Gorgeous Events
Cakes and Pastries: The Cakabakery
Beauty: Alexandra Nicole
Venue: DePree Manor
Rentals: The Rental Company
Wedding Gown: Vue Designs
Paper and Calligraphy: Laura Hooper Calligraphy

While working with these talented vendors, I truly feel that we were able to create a sense of community and story through our work together, whether it was the florist preparing bouquets of beautiful flowers or watching as everyone sat down to a perfectly set dinner table.  These are all important parts of the wedding story, involving not just the marriage partners, but all the different people involved in making the wedding experience memorable and forever.  While we may look at a wedding and see it as a beautiful beginning to a new life together for the couple, we should also see it as the end to the story, written in chapters by the amazing vendors and wedding professionals.

Enjoy the story we have to share through these images and pick up your copy of Cottage Hill Magazine to see more images and stories contributed by some very talented people!

Earlier this year I had the honor of traveling to Guam to photograph a once in a lifetime destination wedding. On my way to Guam I had a 4 day layover in Japan. Having never been there I chose to stay in the historic village of Kyoto. As a lover of travel, there is nothing like going to a country where you do not speak or read the language. I literally was Lost in Translation.

I had so many wonderful experiences during my short stay here. I took a hike through the mountains and ate delicious food on platforms over a river, rang a shrine bell at the top of a mountain, explored temples, rubbed buddha bellies, sat in a Japanese Onsen with locals, saw Geisha being carted to their evening appointments, learned Shakyo from a Buddhist priest, climbed a LOT of stairs, strolled through a market with so many odd and delicious smells, and wandered through zen gardens in awe of the peaceful beauty this country has to offer.

I look forward to my next visit to Japan and hope to see more of this amazing country and its people. These are just a few of the many images I captured. I am not sure what a lot of these are so if you have any explanations I would love to hear from you!
