Tom & Emily's wedding was something special. There was such a unique charm to The Lageret from the moment I stepped in. Gorgeous exposed brick everywhere, authentic hardwood flooring throughout, multiple levels, just beautiful across the board! And then I saw the bridal suite!! Wow!! Bright, white, and massive windows - a photographer's dream!

I was the second shooter at Tom & Emily's wedding for Caroline Cavalcante. She is an absolute joy to be around and so easy to work with! The role of a second shooter is to capture alternate angles for the couple's final gallery and to be a support system for the lead photographer.

Congratulations to Tom & Emily as they begin their newlywed chapter together!

Emily's dress was absolutely stunning and it fit her like a glove!

The Lageret had a super cool groom's quarters with a massive score board on the wall. Such a unique touch!

Emily's sister helped her get ready.

First looks are such special and tender moments. Emily choose to do a first look with her dad, and then with Tom. First looks with your future spouse help calm your nerves, generally make your timeline go smoother, give you a greater variety of portraits for your gallery (since we don't have to wait until after the ceremony for portraits) and more. There are so many pros to choosing a first look with each other!

Behind the scenes with Caroline! The energy she brought to this wedding is a God-given gift of hers for sure!

Approaching the aisle - & the moment begins!

Tom & Emily both shared personal vows. Those are my favorite - you will probably see me discreetly wiping a tear or two from the corner of my eye!

You may now kiss the bride!

Tom & Emily had a small cake for themselves, and donuts for their guests.

Such heartfelt moments shared between Tom, Emily, his mom, and her dad.
