Kate’s work speaks for itself, but we also love that her team offers a white glove approach to weddings, always bringing a second shooter, jumping in to lend an expert hand–even if that means stepping out from behind the camera. Kate and her team absolutely adore shooting couples that are taking a unique approach to their wedding, which, let’s be honest, is exactly GLW readers!
Stylist Mallory Joyce tells us, “This bridal portrait session was inspired by the above words from William Butler Yeats’s “Cap and Bells” and the golden light of dusk that warms the Blue Ridge Mountains at end of day.” Very special thanks to her talents, her team, and photographer Elisa Bricker for sharing such beautiful images with us. For the word lovers among us, we’ll let Yeats take it away from here.Click to expand for more
She laid them upon her bosom,
Under a cloud of her hair,
And her red lips sang them a love-song
Till stars grew out of the air.
She opened her door and her window,
And the heart and the soul came through,
To her right hand came the red one,
To her left hand came the blue.
They set up a noise like crickets,
A chattering wise and sweet,
And her hair was a folded flower
And the quiet of love in her feet.
– William Butler Yeats, “Cap and Bells”

For our Sunday feature, we thought we’d share Tom and Seth’s engagement photos, shot by Jen Huang. So stylish, and so sweet!
Liz and Wayne’s engagement session was an excursion of sorts, as the couple went to their favorite spots throughout Queenstown and Lake Wanaka, New Zealand. Photographer Jen Huang captured the pair’s love of travel and adventure as they traipsed through the countryside! Can we just say, New Zealand is so dang beautiful! Click to expand for more
How did you meet?
Wayne and I met through mutual friends. I found him cute and witty, making remarks that were odd, perceptive and funny at the same time. I found out that he had recently moved to Singapore and had a job that required him to work US based hours. Luckily for me, my schedule consisted mostly of night shifts at the hospital that I had dreaded up until then. We were soon sharing our stories nightly into the wee hours of the morning. By the time he surprised me by asking me out to a movie several months later, he knew my preferences and even favorite actors.
How did Wayne propose?
Wayne and I were engaged on the fourth night of our trip to the Maldives. He had planned an elaborate private beach dinner overlooking the sunset. Despite how obvious this may have appeared, I didn’t suspect anything because this was the type of over-the-top hoax Wayne indulged in occasionally. The fancy dinner came and went, and I didn’t notice much other than him being somewhat more fidgety than usual. Must have been the pre-snorkel caffeine drink, I thought. On the way back to the water villa, Wayne took my hand and insisted on taking a detour, having allegedly spotted “giant migrating manta rays.” Somewhat exhausted, I followed and headed towards a secluded beach area where an incredible wedding proposal formed by candles surrounded by tropical plants awaited me. Completely shocked, I turned and looked at Wayne, who had his left knee in the sand. He later told me he thought he had lost the ring during dinner.
