I had the EXTREME honor of photographing this South Africa wedding with one of my closest pals, Alicia Swedenborg! Admittedly, this was a little while back, but I wanted to give her the chance to share and publish this wedding first. You’ll find other posts from our adventure at these links:

But today I’m excited to share these wedding portraits of Candice and Justin! We photographed their wedding in the town of Nottingham Road, and then continued our journey up to the Drakensberg Mountains for photos in their wedding dress and suit & tie!

These two are the absolute sweetest, and were so welcoming of Alicia and I on their journey. It was lovely to witness different cultures and traditions, but also to capture the same beautiful love that brings couples together around the world!

Even a little splashing in the water? Heck yes – for the photos of course!

Candice and Justin, your wedding day (and week) is one that will always remain at the very top of my memories and day-dreams! It was an absolute pleasure to get to know you both, and your country! I wish you all the very best in this lifetime together!

And Alicia, my dear friend, I thank you for sharing this once-in-a-lifetime trip with me. We have travelled to some of the craziest, coolest weddings together – photographed in snowstorms, apple orchards, Sonoma vineyards and the Indian Ocean together. I can’t wait to see where our friendship goes next!

Erica & Greg were married this past September at Topnotch Resort in Stowe, Vermont, and what an incredible weekends in the Green Mountains it was! Stowe has long been one of my favorite towns in Vermont, and I used to work for the ski mountain back in college. Being able to capture weddings in such a romantic place is just the bee’s knees! (yeah, I said that) Topnotch Resort made for a gorgeous wedding destination for this NYC couple!vermont wedding decorErica & Greg were already glowing on the evening of their rehearsal dinner, and the sunset worked its magic for us as we snapped a few photos. Rehearsals are a favorite of mine for the ability to capture couples and families in a more casual environment, but also to have the chance to meet all the weekend’s VIPs before the big day!topnotch-stowe-vermont-wedding-025The next morning brought a hefty pouring of rain, but you wouldn’t know it on the inside! Great day for sledding around the house?getting-ready-20topnotch-stowe-vermont-wedding-012getting-ready-59topnotch-stowe-vermont-wedding-009The rain dampened ceremony plans, but a quick change under the tent was perfect!
