This is something near and dear to my heart, because I’ve realized as I grow older, I use traveling for something more than just to explore new cities. I mentioned it a bit on Lizzie’s podcast – but I’ll reiterate it here for you as well. (If you are here just for the Aruba pics […]

It’s funny because I was on a consult call with an inquiring couple yesterday and the bride mentioned how one of my posts from THIS session that I’m about to share inspired her to watch the sunrise with her boyfriend! And then to make it even more magical, HE PROPOSED to her right there! WHAAAT? […]

I don’t normally blog engagement sessions, but this one stole my heart! We woke up at the crack of dawn to see the sunrise over Lake Michigan! Which if you have not done on a trip to Chicago – you MUST do. I mean, sunrises in general, are just incredibly invigorating. AND THEN you put […]

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 […]

Some people find it unfathomable that one could spend a holiday away from traditions or normal routine. I actually am one of those people – to a point. The only holiday I’ve spent away from family is Thanksgiving (and I’ve done it twice). The first time I was studying abroad in Europe in 2011 and […]

Okay, first of all – no I didn’t just go to Scotland for Harry Potter landmarks (although that was my initial primary reason for the trip). OHH SHUSH (pics are below). Okay, okay, but yes I definitely plan all my excursions based upon books I love and movies I am obsessed with. There I said it. […]

I’ve got a thing for pretty things, as any girl would, of course! But my definition of pretty has changed a ton over the years, especially as I continue down this path as a wedding photographer. Naturally it has sparkles and shiny objects you can wear on body parts, but there is also that definition […]

Timisoara, Romania Wedding I have been trying to write this blog post for a couple weeks now and I still am unsure how to begin. I think I have to start waaaay back when, during a sunrise engagement session the moment Ioan and Iesareela hopped out of their car in Akron, Ohio. FIRST – I’s […]

Also seen on Kentucky Bride Magazine under Real Weddings! There is a piece of my heart saved for just this family. Immediately upon meeting, they engulfed me with kindness. They care for each other so purely, and so fiercely, that I truly hope to embody a love like theirs one day. Genuine, kind and overflowing with light, I am […]
