Let’s be honest. We all know by now that I wayyyyyy over post on weddings. You just keep scrolling and scrolling and the images just keep coming and coming. But each wedding is a such a unique and special story, and the images I post are an attempt to visually tell the story of the beauty, details, and personality of each wedding.
Speaking of beauty and personality, let’s get to Aaron and Meghan. I am so honored to work with the O’Connell family again and Aaron and Meghan are OBVIOUSLY beautiful, but they are just as cool as they are pretty. Huge congratulations to the newlyweds!! I love you guys!

Big families? Pshhhhh, I got this. Especially when the mama is a beautiful and is a photographer herself, the dad is chill and awesome, and the kids are super cooperative and just want to play for my camera. I really love this family.
Just in case you were wondering if they were fun and like to have a good time together…
Seriously, are you kidding, little girl? You are one gorgeous baby…
I love this family so much. Plain and simple. Loved photographing them when the twins were little, Loved photographing them when they got big, and love photographing them now that they have an adorable, sassy, little red head to add to the mix.
Hey there, just me again. Loving that I get to capture little girls doing their little girl things. When you are a mom surrounded by boy everything, a little bit of pink and giggles is a fun slice of heaven.
WOW. Amazing family. Thanks for being awesome, Whitmires :)
This story starts on a gorgeous day under the Tuscan sun. MAN, I’ve wanted to use that phrase for a while now. So, where was I? Oh yes, the weather was perfect. There we were, photographing the wedding of Mike and Kiley, in the most perfect villa, nestled in the most perfect rolling hills of Tuscany. I’m not being dramatic, people. It was that perfect.
Many, many and huge congrats to Mike and Kiley! It was an honor to photograph your amazing day :)

Go ahead and settle in. This is a long blog post. But, it’s PARIS. With JOSH AND CARRIE AND ME in it.
Let me rewind.
“Hey Jean, I know you’re traveling around, and I’m not sure where you’ll be, but I am surprising Carrie with a trip to Paris at the end of September for our ten year anniversary, and would love to surprise her with a photo shoot there as well. Are you available and interested?”
“Well, Josh, it JUST so happens that I live four hours west of Paris, and we are leaving France via Paris at the end of the month, so our timing works perfect! And DUH, of course I would love to photograph you there!!”
That is the shortened version of our email conversations, but you get the point.
Rewind even more.
I first photographed Josh and Carrie five or six years ago with just them and their little pup. Since then, they have had two gorgeous daughters, and I have had the privilege of photographing their family several times over the years. So, going back to our “roots”, and just shooting the two of them again, IN PARIS, was quite amazing.
So, go ahead wives everywhere, swoon away…
I’m super excited to share the wedding of two of my favorite human beings. I met them at Ryan and Jillian’s wedding, fell in love with them at their engagement shoot, so spending their wedding day with them was, well, amazing. Huge congratulations Kevin and Logan :)
