Historically, the fall is when we get the highest number of inquiries – typically about […]

You’re engaged! Congratulations! This is such an amazing time in your life! I remember like it was yesterday when Jay proposed.

Summer is right around the corner and with that come lots of engagement sessions, yay! But also with that comes the dilemma of choosing between a sunset or sunrise shoot, and facing the fact that sometimes a sunrise shoot is best, so today I thought I’d share a few reasons why a sunrise shoot may […]

Today I’m sharing my newest obsession with you all. I’ve always looooved calligraphy (I even took one of Laura Hooper’s classes in NYC once!) but sadly, I’m just not that great at it. I so love how elegant it is and how quickly calligraphy can make something look so classic and timeless. If I were […]

I first discovered Rustic Drift, a boutique rental company, back in 2014 when one of our couples incorporated some of their beautiful rentals on their wedding day. Since then, I’ve admired their hand-built rustic and vintage rentals that are always a wonderful addition to any wedding day. Since I love introducing our couples to our favorite wedding vendors, […]
