dave & taryn

were married may 2nd... at the beauuuutiful farm at south mountain. i've become really close to this couple since they booked me almost a year ago. they are amazing people, so very kind & generous. for instance, they gave peanut an organic onsie that says "ask me what's in my compost pile" :)

they've had some obstacles with the wedding plans- changing caterers, getting a pretty late phone call from their original venue that they'd double booked- me informing them that i would be 8 months pregnant at their wedding- which they took brilliantly, by the way, they said they didn't care if i waddled! but none of that mattered because they were flexible & made new plans & their wedding was fabulous. it probably would have been even if it was in a dumpster- their love is that special. okay that might be pushing it, but seriously, they have a very special relationship & i was honored to be there & document it.

a lil shout out to andy delisle who assisted me for this wedding! thanks, i couldn't have done it with out you!

here are a few of my favorites:

their sweet maggie was a big part of the day!

dave looking dapper.

they chose to see each other before hand & it was so special with dave tearing up & taryn totally surprised! but this was my favorite.

and now for a few cute portraits...

taryn & her dad getting ready to walk down the aisle.

dave awaiting his bride... a great one from andy!

her dress was fantastic & funky & unique & so very cool.

the ceremony was very beautiful.

one of my favorites from andy.

how cute is this?

they danced down the aisle- it was pretty sweet.

and now for some more portraits. while dave was petting maggie she sneezed directly into his face. it was pretty funny, sorry dave.

i can see them getting this one blown up- she's their baby.

i made us truck it over to the other end of the resort because dave & i'd found this tree a few weeks ago when we were scouting portrait places & i knew it would make for a beautiful backdrop.

everything was in full bloom in the garden. this is one of my favorites.

they practiced their dance.

for some reason this one is really funny to me. don't they look like they just spent a year of their life planning a wedding :) tehee.

i feel like this is in a secret garden or something.

another fabulous photo from andy. i love the detail.

their first dance- which they'd been taking lessons & turned out really well. kudos!

doesn't dave look like he's being tortured. he hated it. i'm sure he did.

and then the last dance...

what a beautiful evening at a beautiful venue with a beautiful couple surrounded by some wonderful people.

thanks taryn & dave... i've loved getting to know you & i know you'll have a very wonderful life together!


  1. The shot with the tree is beautifully composed. Nice location scouting too. Reminds me of the tree in Shawshank redemption :)

  2. This may be my favorite ring shot you have taken! I love the doggy shots.
