She has this subtle yet pervasive strength and confidence about her. The kind that’s very reassuring– like she knows how to tackle any situation that comes her way, with grace and humor no less. I suppose that’s one of the many reasons Jessica makes such a great teacher, and while I’ve not seen her in action, I can imagine her classroom is one of the coolest in the hall and that her students adore her. She beautiful, motivated and downright sweet. It’s no wonder Travis fell in love with her.
And, well, it’s no wonder she fell in love with him. Travis is the kind of guy you want around for just about anything and everything. He’s the life of the party and approaches life in a way that’s irresistible–with a smile, light-heartedness, and sheer commitment to awesome. He’s no doubt the guy you could a deep meaningful conversation with and then moments later find yourself in the midst of a full fledged water fight, Super-Soakers and all.
Yet, together they are even better. It’s like two strong doses of awesome all in on. So suffice it to say, they are two of my favorite people, and I’m so grateful they’ve become friends as a result of my being their wedding photographer. It was such a honor to celebrate with them, to witness them commit their lives to each others, and to have the privilege of telling part of their love story.
So it’s with a giant smile on my face (and a bit of a chuckle recalling Travis climbing a tree in his suit just for fun), I give you Jessica & Travis’s wedding editorial….

Jessica’s Casablanca gown from The Dresser was gorgeous just on the hanger and even more stunning on her. And that bouquet? Wow. Travis is one lucky man! Jessica, you are GORGEOUS! Jessica’s hair and make-up was by the ever-fabulous duo Ashley & Kristin of LunaBella. This two are simply the best and their execution is flawless and incredibly efficient to boot. They blow my mind every.single.time. And I adore working with them.
Seriously?!But let’s be honest, Travis is quite handsome himself, am I right?!
As many of my couples often do, Jessica & Travis opted for a first look. So we set it up to take place underneath an old oak tree on the hill above the vineyard. It was perfect. And then of course, we took our share of wedding portraits around the property. Some of my favorite images to date… le sigh. My favorite paring from the day…And I just love this shot Montana got of Jessica when I was photographing the boys. Hello matching boat shoes!Lincourt Vineyard made for a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony.
Aww, wedded bliss. It’s the best. And that golden hour light was magical as always, so we had to sneak in a few pre-party portraits. I love this shot Montana got. Such a fun angle. Time to celebrate…And that they did with the best first dance I’ve seen. Haha. It was awesome. And this crew new how to have a good time. Let me tell you. We ran off to the barrel room for a few quick shots before the night ended. And I’m so glad we did. #boom
Jessica & Travis, thank you for being awesome, for inviting me into your world and for being such great friends. You’re the best and I adore you both!!
