This day was a dream. From the moment I met Jillian & Bryan I knew we were kindred spirits. I fell in love with them from the moment her first email hit my inbox – where Jillian told me her style was art deco and retro with a little East Village grunge thrown in, and his a refined classic rock n roll kinda guy. They met in Nashville through Jillian’s producer and best friend who happens to be Bryan’s brother, Tofer. Jillian & Bryan started dating shortly after Bryan began playing in her band (Jillian Jacqueline) and from then on, they knew it was a forever thing. After getting engaged in Paris under the sparkling 1 am eiffel tower lights, Jillian & Bryan got married a little over a year later in Nashville surrounded by 150 of their closest people.
The day was pure magic – full of emotion, music, good food, dancing, happy tears, and so much love. It efffortless, fun, and beautifully honest to who they are. Days like these are why I fell in love with capturing weddings and I’m so thankful to have been a part of such a beautiful celebration of a truly magnetic love.

A few words from the bride:
“You captured the day so magnificently, no moment or detail was forgotten about. And you perfectly encapsulated all of the joy, spirituality, tenderness, and of course, LOVE, that we felt on that day. I am so in awe of your gift with a camera and am SO happy that we were fortunate enough to have you as our wedding photographer. Your eye is effortless and poignant. There are photos here that will serve as a reminder for us of the deep love we share for years and years to come. We both teared up multiple times seeing all of the moments so gorgeously frozen in time.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
