Happy April, friends! If you’ve been following this blog for a while you were probably wondering why it’s been so quiet around here! It’s hard to believe I haven’t published a blog post on here for over seven weeks! That’s the longest stretch I’ve gone without publishing new content. It wasn’t my intention to take […]


This post has been a long time coming! Jay and I celebrated our sixth anniversary back in June but we postponed celebrating until August when we had a short break from weddings *and* we would also be celebrating the end of our first trimester. Originally, we had planned to just do an anniversary session and […]


I have to say, it’s so surreal to be writing this post! We’ve been married for over six years and in that time, we’ve gone through so many different phases from not feeling ready to have a baby to wondering if we waited too long to have our first child! We’ve been through it all […]


Last week I got to attend the Showit United conference out in Tempe, Arizona. It’s my favorite photography conference, focused on community in the most encouraging and intimate environment you could imagine. Last year when I attended Showit United 2016, I fully intended to blog about my wonderful experience there, but I found it impossible […]


Happy New Year! While we still have work from 2016 to share here on our blog, we wanted to pop in and wish you all a Happy 2017!


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 […]


You may have heard of the Rising Tide Society, an international movement for creative entrepreneurs and small business owners built on a foundation of community over competition.


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, […]

romantic. timeless. classic.
