From the mountaintop elopement to the lakeside gathering, this seasonal styled shoot was an adventure from beginning to end. Amy and Joel hiked arm-in-arm through the tall pines and flowing streams up to the peak of Sugarloaf Mountain, where the surrounding landscape displayed an array of autumnal color. Heartfelt vows were exchanged before making their […]
A simple scroll through these photos and Taylor’s smile will tell it all. Happiness literally radiated from these two from the beginning moments of their day until they were spinning across the dance floor for their first dance. Michael, being the Southern gentleman he is, filled the day with incredibly thoughtful surprises for Taylor. I’m […]
In a season of everchanging wedding trends, Haley and Daniel created a wedding day that was classic and timeless. It was the perfect blend of traditional and romantic elements. The day begin with a meaningful ceremony in the family church and ended with a dreamy sunset over rolling golf course hills (I dare you not […]
You know those weddings that you can’t seem to stop talking about weeks after they’d passed? This is one of those. I kicked off my wedding season as an associate for Dani Stephenson Weddings by traveling to Eckers Apple Farm to celebrate Jessica and Bill. This working apple farm only takes on four weddings a […]
Today I’m sharing a bit of Ethan and Lexie’s beautiful outdoor wedding at the Willow Pond Bed and Breakfast. Their day wasn’t without a couple challenges (a 100 degree day to work with), but they took it in full stride and created an absolutely perfect day. Every minute of their day spoke to their unique […]
Today I’m sharing a little bit of the behind the scenes of the wedding I helped shoot for Dani Stephenson Weddings. Whenever I get the chance to join her on a wedding day, I know I’m in for an incredible day. Kyler and Brittany’s wedding at the Lageret was just that. Every detail of their […]
“The day will be as perfect as you make it. Things will probably go wrong, and you can’t let that ruin your day. In the end, you’re with the person you want to be with the rest of your life and that’s what matters.” Chelsea wrote these words herself in an email to me weeks […]
Anyone who knows me at all knows that Joanna Gaines is my want-to-be best friend and I live and breathe all things Magnolia. Given this, you can imagine the amount of anticipation I felt as I watched the Magnolia-inspired styled shoot unfold at the Rad Photographers Retreat. Rustic elements like the barn board backdrop met […]
In a world that is easily caught up in image and drawn to superficiality, there is something to be said about bringing a wedding back to it’s simplest and truest form. This is exactly what Dustin and Leslie accomplished on their wedding day. They created a day that was relaxed and genuine, yet beautiful in […]
Fall is a season of change, am I right? I’ve embraced this season with a couple big changes of my own. The first? Welcoming our baby girl, Adelyn, into our world this September. I’ve fallen in love with this little girl and have learned so much in her short 7 weeks of life. Like how […]
As I had previously shared, last summer I chose photographer, Dani Stephenson, to capture my favorite moments of my own rustic wedding. I loved every minute of the planning, that day, and how I can now endlessly relive it through the photos she gifted us. Photography has always tugged at my heartstrings and this past […]
You're nestled up by a fire at your family cabin, lakeside, with only the stars to accompany your sweet conversation over hot cocoa and Blue Moon.
Family, friends, and twinkle lights. Windblown hair. Hiking boots for adventurous photography. Cozy moments for just the two of you.
A dirty hem from dancing and making memories...
and smiles you just can't wipe off your faces.
