Aaron & Ellie got married on family property outside of Göthenburg, Sweden. When Aaron first told me him and Ellie were wanting a destination wedding in Sweden, I had no idea what to expect. After arriving in Jälby, a little town on the countryside, they both showed me to the ceremony location. “Do you think this’ll work? Ellie pointed to the row of trees in the distance, “My dad is gonna walk me down the aisle, right there.” I just laughed. “Ya. That’s gonna be just fine.”

The experience I came away with from this day was something that I’ll never forget. The people, the day. It was the heart of everything I wanna do as a wedding photographer. And I’ll be forever grateful.

Went to Colorado where I shot Rachel & Josh’s wedding up in Rocky Mountain National Park. Early morning vows and being chased off the mountain by torrential rains mid portraits were all new things for me. All of which I’d gladly redo if it meant shooting something like this again. Thanks to my buddy David for seconding with me.
