I met Denise and Dan the week of their wedding, though I had come to know them vicariously through Denise’s mom in previous months.  the night of the rehearsal dinner, hearing stories from the friends and family that love them most, and watching their sweet affection with one another, I fell in love with these two.

I told Denise’s mom last night at the viewing party that Denise reminds me of a cross between two Kennedy’s…Jackie and Carolyn Bessette.  She’s classic, intelligent, elegant, poised.  Dan lights up any room with ease.  He is laid back, funny, and disarming.  I love the way I could see how crazy they are about each other even in their differences.

Thank you guys for such a good time!  Best to you in your new life in St. Louis!

Jewel was back with Denise and her dad right before the big doors opened.  This photo was especially meaningful to Denise’s mom who didn’t get to see this hidden moment of anticipation between two of her most beloved people.

  • Nice work on those limo shots! All of those are my favorites. Except i must say i really love that vertical with the big chandelier in the foreground.

    Becca and Jewel,

    We had so much fun with both of you on our wedding day and we LOVE our pictures! Dan and I sat on the couch last night and had our own little viewing party over some wine and pizza. 🙂 We can’t wait to spend more time looking through all of our pictures again because there are many wonderful moments to re-live from our wedding weekend. Hope you’re both doing well! Best, Denise and Dan

  • Astounding! You are a ROCK STAR..even if you are my daughter:)

    Dear Becca and Jewel,
    I can’t look at these photographs enough and fall in love with them more with each visit. They are each so artistic and elegant, but I also love your thoughtful composition of photos…it was exquisite and very touching.
    We loved working with you so much and I totally agree with with your Mom…you are a star! All the best to you, Barbara
