Dulany’s Overlook Tuscan Inspired Wedding | Olivia + Craig

August 25, 2023


Love is what carries you, for it is always there, even in the dark, or most in the dark, but shining out at times like gold stitches in a piece of embroidery. 

-Wendell Berry

What an absolute joy it was to photograph Olivia and Craig’s wedding day at Dulany’s Overlook! Olivia leaned into her Italian roots for this one and the entire day was dotted with pieces of Tuscany – tiny bottles of homemade limoncello on the tables, fragrant lemons tucked into verdant centerpieces, and crinkly wrapped Italian candies tucked around tiered cakes. The day shifted from hot sun to storm clouds more than once and their happy hearts were rewarded with a rainbow just before the start of the reception.

I loved Olivia’s soft, breezy gown, weightless in the wind and a dream to photograph. It took me approximately three minutes to realize Craig reminded me of Jimmy Fallon and yes, he says he’s heard that before.

The kisses were many, the dance floor was crowded, the glasses were clinking, and I had a front row seat. Many thanks to Amanda Summers for having me along for this one! You can see more Dulany’s Overlook weddings here and here.

After 12 years and over 200 weddings, I've created a wedding experience that is completely unfussy and truly irresistible.

Exceptional, gorgeous photography doesn’t have to be so serious; it can be playful and celebratory. Wanna know what lights me up? Unscripted, in-between moments on fast-paced wedding days and salty cocktail hour snacks. It’s been a thrill to see my work featured in magazines and online, but I’m proudest of all the brides who turned into friends.
