Expectations. They can be a bear right? Well at least in my life they can. I had an expectation that I would be married within two years of meeting my husband. I thought any longer was wasting time. {He proposed after 6 years together.} I expected that buying a house would never happen for us […]

I would argue that choosing your wedding venue is the single most important decision of your wedding planning process. The venue sets the theme for the entire wedding! Do you want a urban, lush, high-end wedding? Well, hosting it in a barn with acres of open fields will not provide you that ambiance. The same […]

I have been saving this wedding for a while because their portraits were out of this world. Their golden hour is not like anything I have seen before! The love between these two is something so real and so raw. I adored the way Kevin stepped in and spearheaded the wedding planning when Mandy couldn’t. […]

I have, what I like to call, a “venue crush” on The Farm at Eagle’s Ridge. The owners, Betsy and Paige, are the sweetest and there wasn’t a single thing overlooked when they created this venue.

I am going to keep this post short and sweet. I don’t want to sit here and gush sentence after sentence about Kat and how awesome I think she is (#truestory).

Amy from PhotoChic had approached me about collaborating on a styled shoot back in November. We decided on a winter theme, then a minimalist theme, and then Amy sent me a picture of a gorgeous red dress and we both said “Valentine’s Day”.
