This past Saturday, I had the honor of capturing a rustic, yet elegant, campground wedding that was fourteen years in the making. Yes, Alana and Chris tied the knot on their fourteenth anniversary!

I don’t even know where to begin. This wedding was an absolute fairytale! Last Saturday, my beautiful little sister married her very own prince charming. (And I swear, him being in his army blues made him look even more prince-like!) I have never seen Marissa smile as much as she has since Paul came into […]

I usually do not blog weddings that I’ve done working as a second-shooter for another photographer; however, I had to make an exception for this absolutely gorgeous, historic mansion wedding at Venue3Two. Every detail was complete perfection. I just know this Pinterest-worthy wedding will be an inspiration to anyone planning their own wedding! It’s certainly […]

Meggan and Brent are two of the kindest, most hard-working people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Meggan recently graduated vet school, and she and her now husband breed goats! If you’ve been a follower of mine for a while, you may remember their adorable, goat-filled engagement session from last fall! For the last two […]

Goodbye 2018, hello 2019! Scrolling through social media this morning, I’m seeing a TON of posts reviewing all of the amazing things that happened in 2018, as well as goals, hopes, and dreams for the coming year. For me, 2018 wasn’t without its challenges, but all in all was a pretty spectacular year. I visited […]

The quiet sanctuary of St. Jude church was filled with a bout of laughter as Andrew unfolded a piece of paper so long that the bottom hit the floor at his feet. That paper was his vows. As he began to read and recount the story of how he and Kimberly met and fell in […]

i BELIEVE IN LIGHT, laughter, having a great time AND
