you know that awkward moment when you show up to shoot one of the most important days in a person’s life and you’ve never even met one another?  whether it’s over dinner, at an engagement shoot, or through casual meetings leading up to the wedding, i love to have a relationship already established with the couples who have so graciously trusted me with their story. but when you live states away from one another, that kind of bond isn’t always easy to form. despite my uncertainty, though, the second i stepped out of my car at kathryn’s house that morning, it felt like i was seeing an old friend. one big smile and a bigger hug into it, i knew we were going to be just fine.

kathryn and brian were married on the grounds of the historic fillauer lake house and their reception was held in the adjacent magnificent barn. every detail of the venue has been preserved to perfection – from the vintage family wedding photos and the period victorian wallpaper to the original moss-covered stone bridge and the retro modern “man cave” that the last generation of fillauers added in the 1960s for their growing family.  add a sunny sky and a cool breeze and you have a recipe for a perfectly perfect wedding day.  congratulations, kathryn and brian, and thank you so much for having us along for the incredible ride!
