Marisa Smith,

Some people come into your life for a reason and I so am thankful that Kourtney & Andrew entered mine.  Helping them prepare and getting to know them up through their wedding day has been an extraordinary journey every step of the way! As much as I would like to paint a picture that every […]

After rescheduling Sara & Steven’s engagement session once because of rain, we decided to take a chance on a day where the forecast predicted “light rain.”  Needless to say, we got a surprise when an intense thunderstorm rolled through unexpectedly.  We had quite the adventure and they were so amazing and laid back during the […]

When I first met Allison & Brandon, they expressed how important it was to have ceremony that was special for them and their families.  While they wanted the intimacy of a minimony, they also wanted to celebrate with their families and friends.  They decided to have both options by having their ceremony with their parents […]

When Brianne & Andrew’s wedding day finally arrived, I was so excited for them!  Getting to know them has been such a fun journey, in not only seeing how they adore each other, but also the sense of humor and quirkiness they share in their relationship.  They may also have a bit of a competitive […]

Kaity has always been the most caring person I have known since college.  She’s always been a fan of MRP and I’ve always had the most wonderful time capturing her friends’ weddings and seeing her as a bridesmaid.  I was so excited when she finally reached out to me to photograph her wedding!  It’s been […]

This has been our first “Real Trip” since the start of the pandemic, and a well overdue getaway for Stephen and I.  We dropped Burchfield off at Puppy Camp for the week where he got extra walks, play time, treats and kongs…needless to say he was in good hands!  It was our first time visiting […]

From the first time I met Allison & Greg, I noticed how truly genuine they are as a couple! Their love of stories was so evident in every part of their wedding day, as their officiant and Greg’s close friend told a very detailed story from how they came to meet in California when Greg […]

When I first met Emma, she described wedding planning as “delightful.”  This word really struck me at the time, and I kept thinking of it over and over while capturing her and Fred during their engagement session.  They definitely embody it and it’s so evident seeing the joy radiating in these photos.  I love that […]

Abigail & Adam’s wedding was filled with so much joy and sunshine that it emanated throughout their day!  They were surrounded by so much love from their families & friends.  Abigail mentioned to Adam in one moment how much he was smiling, and I couldn’t help but see them grinning from ear to ear, and […]

I always enjoy the mild breaks in winter.  Today I felt lost at one point as the landscape felt entirely new and unfamiliar, although we’ve walked this path many times before.  The season of winter always feels more open to me in the sense of the lighter hues of the grass and remnants of leaves, […]
