My bro gets married! {Aneta & Sean}


My brother and best friend, Sean, tied the knot to his perfect match this week. When I found out they were getting married, I was giddy! Aneta has a kindness and sweetness that makes her easy to be around, she’s thoughtful, a great listener and speaks in such a soothing, comforting voice. She’s the perfect compliment to him in every way. The road was long to arrive at this point, and I am so happy they found each other!

Their Spring wedding on board the Celebrity Silhouette cruise ship featured a perfect trio: a great blend of family time, low-stress logistics, and relaxation while sailing the Carribean. Our little ones have bonded with cuteness with Sean and Aneta, cuter than 2-year-old humming away with his seersucker bowtie and matching ivy cap or a one-year old with three teeth on the bottom row and a nose that belongs in a museum.

As a gift, I offered my creative time to document their day… and it was an amazing experience. I gave myself a few blocks of time to create portraits and document moments. The rest of the time I enjoyed being a guest at a wedding.

Sean and Aneta, I couldn’t be happier for you. During their wedding ceremony, I put my camera down, savoring the moments as Sean read his vows, ending with surprise spontaneous silly poem. Aneta glowed with pride, our parents beaming with joy from ear to ear. Thank you for being the best brother and sister-in-law I could ask for. I wish you the very best as you make the world a better place through unconditional love and altruistic actions.


I’d never thought a double stroller would serve as wedding seating for two!

According to Sean, a hug should last no less than six seconds. This type of wisdom serves one well all over the world, especially at Burning Man.

These two will make great parents one day, demonstrated by their teamwork and patience in helping with our little ones and making them feel special on their cruise wedding!
