Happy Valentine’s Day! I think every day should be one where we spread love and show kindness. But we can use today as a reminder to do that throughout the year! I hope you all have a wonderful day, surrounded by those you love // As seen on @weddingsparrow Photography @mallorydawnphoto Florals @findingflora Paper Goods & Calligraphy @pirouettepapercompany Venue @missionsanjuan Gown @allurebridals Ring Box @the_mrs_box Models @milena_luann @ja_ke8 Scanned by @goodmanfilmlab

Happy Monday everyone! I have a really exciting giveaway coming up soon, so be sure to be on the lookout for it! This image is from a wedding a few years back when I was just beginning to shoot film! I will always love this photo of Heather & Michael! Scanned by @thefindlab
I highly recommend couples book an engagement session with the person who will be photographing their wedding. A lot of wedding photographers (myself included) include this in their collections, and we do that for a reason. I call it the “trial run” for the wedding and I honestly believe it makes for better wedding photos in the end. You will learn more about how your photographer shoots and their process. And in return, your photographer gets to know you as a couple, what poses are flattering etc. Plus you will receive beautiful photos of you and your significant other that celebrate the exciting time in your lives!

Tip for couples - make sure you choose a bridal party that will make you laugh on your wedding day! Seems obvious but it is so important! // As seen on @thewhitewren Venue @lakeoakmeadows Photography @mallorydawnphoto Florals @hartworksfloral Videography @theater10films Wedding gown @demetriosbride Hair @ahairloveaffair Makeup @makeupykandice Calligraphy @rosyavenue_calligraphy Invitations @minted DJ @good_time_entertainment Bakery @bocakesbakery Photo Booth @capturedphotobooths
After spending the past two days with @heatherpaynephoto and soaking up all of the knowledge she was kind enough to share, I feel refreshed and inspired to make positive changes to my business. We got to photograph a breathtakingly beautiful editorial at @sunstonewinery and then spent the day yesterday chatting all things business with lots of laughs along the way. Heather, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
