Joshua and Réka reached out to me while they were planning a very simple and quiet morning wedding ceremony at one of Vienna's Standesamt (aka courthouses). They wanted to capture a few pictures of themselves before they went to the Standesamt and had their civil ceremony. I was more than happy to oblige, of course. (I love courthouse portrait sessions!) Joshua met Réka while on tour in Europe and ever since then it was love at first sight for the both of them. It was also clear from the start that they both had met their match. Joshua has a cheeky personality and Réka is impeccably calm and sweet. Both her sweetness and his spice are perfectly balanced out in their relationship.Read More

When Ben was heading into work one day he looked up and saw “the most beautiful woman” across the way in the same u-bahn he was riding in. He saw her get off the same stop and head into the same place he worked at and after that, he made it his mission to get introduced to this woman. After many attempts he was able to work his way into her good graces and woo her into dating him. A few years later and they were wed in an intimate and simple ceremony in Vienna.Read More
Sasha and Jay just welcomed their newest addition into the family and wanted a quiet newborn family session in their home. Their little one was sleeping when I arrived, but he woke up so that he could grace me with his presence. And what a joyous presence he is! We spent the afternoon cuddling, kissing, and laughing with him. He was so tiny and so brand new that I pretty much had to suppress my squeals whenever I got to hold him; he is one beautiful tiny cherub.Read More
I met Melinda through a blogging group when she launched her website on how to turn a space into a home. I was mesmerized by her website name and even more with her ideas and talent for taking a space and turning it into something beautiful. (Seriously, you must go check out her site and additionally, her ideas). I was even more delighted to meet her in person during her session. I didn't have to work hard at all to get her to smile; she laughed at practically everything I said and was so easy to photograph!Read More
I just can't even. And I don't say that lightly. This session had me in tears, in a good sobbing kinda way.
First some back story; so I met Christina before both my feet even touched Austrian soil. I had posted a question in an online forum before I had moved to Vienna and she was one of the first people to respond. She was also one of the first people to invite me out to dinner when I got to Vienna. She's basically the first friend I had in Vienna. So I feel it's safe to say that she was my first girl crush I had here cause she was nice, helpful, and above all, caring. (How can you not crush on a person like that?) Our friendship was further solidified through an organization called Women of Vienna (this organization is a reoccurring theme in my life) and once I found out she also had some serious appreciation for Mexican food...well we're just friends for life now. #mexicanfoodloversunite
