I don’t often get the chance to shoot downtown locations when it comes to my engagement sessions but luckily Christan and Drew trusted me and we went for it! You’ll notice quite a few shots of them in front of their favorite little coffee shop (and the place of their second date!) Because of COVID-19, […]
It’s no secret that COVID is wrecking the wedding industry right now. As sad as I am that my wedding season is being rearranged, I don’t imagine it’s anything close to what my poor couples are feeling right now. Carly + Alex were first up on my schedule this year. I was so excited to […]
If you’re a wedding photographer, I’m sure you’ve attended a styled shoot in the past or at least heard of them. They are an amazing way to build your portfolio when you’re new, update your content if you’re established, and fuel your creative heart if you’ve been feeling less than inspired. But I want to […]
It’s no surprise that COVID-19 has been causing mass panic among 2020 brides over the last month or so. Whether you’re set to marry this spring, summer, fall or even winter. It’s on your mind.

This time of year is rough. I hate telling people that I am already booked for their wedding date. However, this is the time of year when it seems like I receive multiple inquires for dates that I’ve had booked for months. I’d imagine it also probably sends a sense of panic back to the […]
Did you see my latest freebie?! To me, in my business and for my brides, organization is one of the biggest elements on a wedding day. I love sitting down and creating a perfectly organized wedding day timeline for my couples to not only keep us on track but also to make sure we aren’t […]
Whoa.. What a weekend! I had 6 new photographers sitting in front of me expecting me to teach them something. That is SO crazy to me. Like I told them, I am 100% self taught. I didn’t go to school for photography. Never even took a course on it. I learned most everything I know […]
To do a first look or go traditional… that is the question! Yesterday, I sat down to write a blog on MY thoughts on the matter. What I liked or disliked about either route. When I got about halfway through I realized it was sounding a little to “photographer” and I realize that is not […]
One of the most popular questions I hear from my brides regards their save the dates and wedding invitations! It’s hard to know where to even start when there is a million different wedding invitation websites out there. Luckily for my couples, I can direct them pretty early on in the game where to go […]
