Kicking off wedding season this weekend at an all-time favorite venue of mine @burlapandbells1 ! Cannot wait to capture Courtney + Ilan say “I do” amongst the pines, is it Saturday is it Saturday?! I’ve been looking ahead at all my couples’ big days coming up and just wondering how I got so lucky. Get ready, there’s bound to be a whole lotta pretty coming your way! . .

Sneak peek of Whitney & Brandon's e-sesh last weekend! They drove up all the way from Illinois to eat cake & hang out with me (unfortunately two separate occasions, but I forgive). This sweet couple is tying the knot next month so you'll be seeing even more of them soon! Oh and fun fact: they also took a month long road trip, except they went the real adventurous route and had nothing but a tent! They camped nearly every night for 35 days and it was on this trip that Brandon proposed to her while they watched the sun rise over the Grand Canyon. 😱💕Double-tap if you think adventurous love is one of the best kinds of love.
Daydreaming I’m back here in this cute little safari tent in the middle of the🌵When you live in and out of a van for a month straight you get used to tiny space living and overall living with less. You’d think you would miss things like oh say, a TV, your own shower, a closet for clothes, etc. But not having these conveniences was surprisingly so liberating! It made us really separate what we desired to have from what we needed. And pretty soon we only desired to have what we needed. When we got back home we realized we didn’t feel as connected to nature, the present moment, and each other as we did while living on so little. We’ve been researching #tinyhome options since and are SO close to actually taking the leap and making this an everyday lifestyle going forth. What do you think? Could you ever go tiny?
One of my all-time favorite weddings is now on the blog! I’ll never forget when Elise, my coworker-turned-friend came crutching into work with a broken foot a month before her wedding day! We got a little creative and worked around the limitations, and these photos ended up becoming some of my favorite work yet. Weddings are living, breathing, events. They are unpredictable as they are beautiful, which is why my job will never get old. So excited to share Elise & Ryan’s wedding day with you!

Just delivered Elise + Ryan’s wedding gallery and getting it ready for the blog😍My bride never even got to wear these pretty heels down the aisle, poor girl broke her foot a month before the wedding (Could you imagine not being able to stand on two feet on your special day? Elise was such a sport!) Luckily we were able to get creative and you wouldn’t even be able to tell! 🙌🏻 Check back Monday for the blog debut!
I carefully begin each gallery just as I did on your wedding day, slowly laying out the details one by one. The invitation, the rings, the shoes, the mirror, the perfume. Details always set the tone and bring back all those “morning of” feelings of joy and excitement and anticipation! Chances are you carefully picked each one to be a part of you day, so let’s brag em up! Give your photographer fair enough time to step away and get creative, and you’ll look back and be flooded with reminders of your unique, beautiful, one-of-a-kind day!
