Monic’ + Aaron Married | Yakima, WA

It was a beautiful outdoor wedding in the country. A warm gathering of friends, family, traditions, and handmade details nestled between fruit orchards in Eastern Washington. Monic’s family lives in the countryside nearby and put in a massive amount of work building and crafting so many elements for the wedding. Monic’ is a country girl who grew up among her family’s orchards, and Aaron is a city boy who served in the military and whisked her away to their new home in Colorado after the wedding. I love that weddings celebrate where we came from and where we’re headed. The day ended with a campfire, cigar bar manned by a cowboy, crazy dancing under the stars, and gratitude for the beautiful life we live.

Karen - This is so sweet and charming! I love all their cute details and it was fun to see Ms. Tonhya as a bridesmaid! Her eyes are insanely beautiful, especially in those first shots! Well done, Julia and Yuriy! :)

Phuong + Mykel Day-After | Brooklyn, NY

The day after Phuong and Mykel’s Brooklyn wedding, we got to photograph them again for some casual day-after photos (since we didn’t do engagement photos). We visited a couple of their favorite NYC neighborhoods, starting in Carroll Gardens and ending up in Red Hook. We felt pretty lucky hanging out with the newlyweds and sharing dinner together before they took off for their honeymoon. I think these photos are a good reflection of their relationship, totally different from their wedding photos, and we had so much fun in the process.
