Jason & Erin | McMenamins Edgefield Wedding

Jason is an old friend, through Peter's brother, Jacob. We got to photograph Jason and Erin's engagement photos at Edgefield in the spring, and we loved getting to come back for their wedding! Jacob was a groomsman--having family members on the "inside" is always fun.

And Edgefield gave them a completely random and stunning day in the middle of a rainy November! Start to finish, it was a beautiful wedding.

Riley & Cassandra | Playa Del Carmen, Mexico Wedding

What a week this was! We brought our one-year-old & my (Susannah's) mom all the way to Mexico for Cassandra & Riley's destination wedding near Cancun! We all got to stay for almost a week at the beautiful Grand Palladium Resort--white sand beach, tons of pools to choose from, all-inclusive food & drinks, and a generous helping of freaky iguanas, adorable coatimundis, and even a crocodile.

We loved getting to capture a little more of the festivities with their families on the days surrounding their wedding. And the wedding itself was a relaxed, intimate, tequila-shot-filled party all day long.

Traveling with our Samson was pretty crazy, but it was definitely worth the extra effort to have him along for one of our adventures! My mom was a total hero and so we even got to have lots of just-us pool & food time. :)
