I’ll be playing tourist for the next couple of weeks.  Any print or album orders placed between May 9th-May 26th will be processed when I return.  I will have limited access to phone and email and will return all message as soon as I can.  Until then, enjoy these photos of my sweet Pip.  She’ll be holding down the fort while we are gone, but since she lacks opposable thumbs, her email response will be slow.  I must say she is probably the cutest dog in the world.  Ciao!

  • aga - that is just toooooooo cute!

  • kim - is it weird that i’d love to have photos of your dogs decorating my walls? these are always way too cute.

  • lucas mobley - YES!!!

  • Salomé - *Sigh. This is adorable!!! Absolutely LOVE the photographs!

  • Salomé - *Sigh.%20This%20is%20adorable!!!%20Absolutely%20LOVE%20the%20photographs!

Colleen and Mike picked the most spectacular location to get married- the Riviera Maya!  The water is the most beautiful shade of turquoise.  (see first photo below- that is not photoshop) It has to be one of my favorite places to vacation, but now it’s my favorite place to work, too!

Even though I didn’t meet with Colleen and Mike before the wedding (they are from New Jersey) we instantly clicked when we met up the day before the wedding.  Friends and family from all over came to witness their union at a sunset ceremony on the beach.  Afterward the guests were invited to one of the great restaurants nearby at the Resort.  It was the first reception that I have ever been to where almost nobody sat down to eat dinner because they were too busy dancing!  Now that’s what I call a party!

All photos below were taken at El Dorado Resort & Spa in the Riviera Maya (except for the first which was taken from seat 11A) *Special thanks to Casey- love of my life and second shooter/assistant extraordinaire*

  • winnie forbes - WOW! What a gorgeous wedding and you captured it so perfectly for them.

  • Kat - Just amazing as always, Kim! <3

  • Joyce Zomack - What an AMAZING JOB! The pictures are spectacular. Love the artsy & candid ones. Very impressed! My son & his wife are lucky to have had you capture these moments.

  • Evelyn - The photos are beautiful capturing Colleen & Michael’s happiest moments.

Ingredients for a unique and unforgettable celebration: a beautiful handmade dress, vintage shoes,  a 1930’s typewriter guestbook,  travel themed table settings, sushi cocktail hour, live performances by 2 talented and quirky bands, an intimate dinner at sunset, a variety of fabulous desserts, a flash dance mob, farm animals, a strong man piñata, vintage games, a photo booth complete with costumes,  and dancing under the stars…

I can only begin to describe the amazing day that was Peter + Amanda’s wedding!   I hope that my images convey even just a fraction of the emotion, fun, whimsy, love, and thought that was put into this sweet event, because I can’t seem to put it into words.  You just had to be there, and if you were, I know that it was a day that you won’t soon forget. ♥

Congrats to Peter and Amanda!!!

A whimsical wedding of course! Not only are Amanda and Peter a beautiful, genuine couple, they also have an eye for really great design. They began by creating an atmosphere that not only honored their eclectic style, but was also fun for their guests. Their wedding planner Francine was phenomenal as well as their photographer Kim Hayes. But enough of my yammering… time for the eyecandy! Amanda, the beautiful bride. Look at this wedding dress. Gorgeous! Love the picture on the left! Here comes the bride… Instead of a guest book, friends and family typed their well-wishes on a vintage typewriter. The Kiss No birdseed for these two.
