Today I have a fun post to share with you all! In case you missed it last week, I recently decided to make a conscious effort to share a little more about us here on this little blog of ours. Click here if you missed that post!  I have to say that I was blown away […]

I’ve been blogging for over six years now and in that time I’ve shared a lot of our work, wedding advice, and insight into our business. I love that this blog tells the stories of our clients and our journey as photographers but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’d like it to tell our story, too. The […]

Those of you who know that Jay and I had a June wedding were probably confused when you saw the title of this post! Yes, this post has been a long time coming – I’m embarrassed to admit that it has been on the to-do list since last June! But as they say, better late than […]

Yesterday would have been my parents’ 39th wedding anniversary – 39 years. Because of her illness, their life together was cut short after 26 years – 26 short years. Some couples are fortunate enough to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary together among great grandchildren while others only have a few years, sometimes less. Time is […]

“Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.” ― Jack Kerouac For our first post of 2016 we invite you to reflect with us for a moment. This quote and our image below, taken somewhere in California between Joshua Tree and Death Valley, capture the essence of new beginnings this time […]

Welcome to our very first behind-the-scenes blog post! I have to say, I don’t know how we managed to compile enough images to put this post together because, quite frankly, we are terrible at remembering to take behind-the-scenes photos! We promise to be better in 2016 because we had such a good time going through these images, […]

Happy Summer, friends! Yesterday was the official start of the summer and we couldn’t be more excited! To kick off the summer we thought we’d share a few photos from another one of the stops during our honeymoon trip. It was one of the highlights of our trip and we have such fond memories of our […]

Recently, one of our brides asked us about the source of our business name and I realized that I have never blogged about the origin of Idalia Photography. So today, as Mother’s Day approaches, I thought I would share the back story as to how we came up with our business name. Naming a business is not easy! My first […]

I have a confession to make: I almost became a Project 365 Dropout last month. As our off-season comes to a close and our wedding season quickly approaches, I’ve been focusing on something else: establishing a cooking routine and running a half marathon! Cooking and running regularly were two things I struggled with during our last wedding season so […]
