I realize it’s now the beginning of November and “fall” has been in full swing for a month and a half. But, as we near the end of the year, I wanted to share the books rounding out my crazy 2017 reading 50 books goal. First, a recap of my summer list, what I read […]

Lo and Lee graciously responded to an Instagram model call I put out this summer for a madly in love couple to be in a photo shoot for me so I could record my new brand video. As soon I got them in front of the camera, I knew they were exactly who I needed. […]

I recently had a client ask me how I ensure authenticity in my work and it was actually something I’ve never been asked before — certainly nothing I really put concrete words to!

I’m not even sure what to say about this shoot. It started as just a small labor of love, wanting to do an inspirational shoot in my hometown last summer. I found this gorgeous model, Maria, who has now become a good friend, and teamed up with a few other local artists to pull this […]

Engagement sessions seem to be the first thing people want to cut from their wedding photography budget. They wonder what on earth they’ll do with all those photos of them when the true photo-sharing event is on the horizon: their wedding. Or they have a a friend with a nice camera and think they’ll just […]

We all know there is a wealth (er, overabundance) of wedding-planning information out there for brides on sites like The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Wedding Wire, Martha Stewart, Brides … the list goes on and on.
