Sara and Jesse

Sometimes I get the opportunity to work with couples who want a short elopement type of wedding and that's exactly what Sara and Jesse were looking for. I only had the opportunity to spend a couple of hours with them on their wedding day but man oh man were they clearly in love with each other. It was a beautiful and short ceremony followed by us hanging out and walking around downtown Omaha a bit to take some really cool wedding photos!

Niodita and Brandon | Omaha Wedding Photography

Niodita and Brandon blended aspects from traditional Indian weddings and American weddings into a two day wedding event. I normally love shooting in black and white but all the glorious color from Nio's multiple wedding gowns and Brandon's traditional Indian suits definitely deserved color. It was a fantastic wedding and I loved how easy Nio and Brandon were to photograph with how clearly into each other they are with no reservations about showing emotion. I wish you both the very best!

I really enjoyed being Allison and Michael's wedding Photographer, they were deeply in love, kind and a fun couple to spend time with and photograph. We also had a beautiful location and sunset to get some stunning wedding photographs of them together. I wish them both all the best!


Tonya and Ryan | Omaha Wedding Photographer

Reception Venue | A View in Fontenelle Hills

I love black and white, it's always focused on the moment and is incredibly beautiful as a result. I decided to shoot some color at the reception, the colors were too fantastic and enhanced the mood of the photos. A few of my personal favorites, mom feeding her baby and helping her other little one with her lip gloss, all without missing a beat, it's such a great mom moment. My other favorite is when after making their entrance Ryan takes Tonya and dips her for a kiss with the wedding party behind them, both these moments were over in seconds but now these perfect moments get to be relived over again. I hope you enjoy seeing their wedding photos as much as I enjoyed creating them.

I met Deanna through her brother when I did his son's senior photos so I had already met some of her amazing family. When I met her fiancee' Joey it was a little intimidating, he was well over six feet tall and a pretty cool beard haha. He is a great guy and it's easy to see why his friends and family enjoy being around him so much. My favorite moment of the wedding was when Deanna handed her dad a personalized gift and in that moment you could see how much love he had for her and Deanna for him. Those small moments through the wedding day are the ones that are the most important and the ones I love capturing for my couples.

William and Rob | Omaha Engagement Photography

William and Rob were referred to me from Audra Pace with Dream Big Events as their wedding coordinator. I've had the opportunity to work with Audra at several events and she's truly fantastic! I took William and Rob to Downtown Omaha Nebraska for the engagement session and found a fountain casting a rainbow during the warm late afternoon which made a perfect backdrop for their same sex engagement session and was one of my favorite images we created together. I'm excited to photograph their wedding later this year!
