This year was a year of more. In all aspects. From traveling to capturing to hugging. The word more comes to mind more often than not. I saw more. I did more. I felt more. I definitely did not plan this. I mean it was not a goal of mine – to do more. (Which […]

There is something spectacular about watching one of your best friends get married. I honestly thought that it wouldn’t phase me as much, but I was a hot mess of emotion. The first part of their wedding was just with close family in our hometown (and those are all the photos you will see below!) […]

I think I need to start this post by saying after our super cold engagement session we stopped in a coffee shop that just happened to make butter beer coffee. YUP. BUTTER. BEER. COFFEE. Dead, dying, and reborn into an HP oblivion. Basically all these months later I’m still geeking out. But moving onto Katie […]

I can’t begin this blog post without first saying that I’ve known Hilary since grade school. Yes, back when bell-bottom jeans and doc martins were the cool things to wear. Back when we wore pleated skirts during the weeks and blue eye-shadow on the weekends. Ohh all the hands on my face, just cringing. Joe, […]

When I posted the first teaser from this wedding I typed the word Fairy Tale into the caption. There was no question or concern over if that was the correct word because everything associated with fairytale and magic and bliss surrounded this entire wedding. Every wedding I’ve captured holds a little bit of magic but […]

“It’s when she walks in that door, and you look at her like it’s the first time you’ve ever seen her. And your heart drops. And you are amazed. And you can’t wait to tell all your friends about this girl. You can’t wait to tell your mom about this girl! And you simply say […]

I think the photographer – couple relationship is truly key for wedding images to be a success. Aside from all the creativity and technical nitty gritties, the relationship between the person behind the camera and the people in front of it, is important. Many of my couples I know through references, or at least feel […]

THE DONUT TABLE. Sorry, but it is 1000% necessary to begin this post with those three words, bolded & in all caps. Because yup, you guessed it – the donut table was EPIC. Epic I tell you, just EPIC. Actually I’m getting ahead of myself, their entire day was epic! The first moment they called […]

I’ve got a bone to pick with you people. I understand that selfies have a bad rap. I get it – dang youths – just taking it way too far sometimes!  (Said in Schmidt’s voice) But what happens when we define a selfie as a snapshot in your life. As a memory of what you […]

As I round out my 5th year in wedding photography, I’ve come to realize that every couple I photograph has their own definition of love. Love is truly individualized, and is what we believe it is, yet it also holds a specific common standard. Even though the overall goal of the definition is the constant […]
