You hear the phrase "ideal client" thrown around a lot in the photography industry and, to be honest, the phrase always seemed a little silly to me. I genuinely get along with most people, so how could any one person define "ideal client?"  Keri, you are the definition of my ideal client. I will never forget opening one of her first emails...

"I have literally been looking for a photographer for months. I have researched and met with numerous photographers but none of them felt quite right. You are exactly what I have been looking for!"

I remember reading that email out loud to my husband and squealing with excitement! I knew I would love Keri just from the way she wrote her emails. Like how she “laughed” in her emails like I do. Not “lol” but literally writing out “hahaha” in the middle of a sentence and not caring that it’s not grammatically correct! :)

After meeting Keri and Dan in person, I was in awe of their relationship! I don’t have the words to express my excitement to finally be sharing this wedding!

Swoon-worthy invitations via Wedding Paper Divas. But of course, being the crafty woman she is, Keri swapped out the white envelopes for pink and grey, created the custom chevron monogram, and bought bakers twine to tie them all together.

The Madison Hotel is one of my favorite new venues, thanks to its giant room full of glass windows! And I love love love all of Keri’s garden-inspired details!
