I am greatly looking forward to photographing this wedding next year! It will be my first wedding coming off my maternity leave in the new year and after spending some more time with this two; it’s going to be so much fun! We laughed and talked the whole time….lots and lots of laughing and giggling. Both of them were so adorable; I know nerves set in and it can feel awkward having your photo taken (I feel it every time we have our own photos taken!) but these two rolled with everything I asked and giggled and laughed the whole way. I can tell their wedding is going to be full of love and fun; and I bet some major side hurting laughs!
“Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can; all of them make me laugh.”

I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this beautiful family’s present & future. Considering I’ve been friends with this beautiful mother and bride to be for 10 years! (and such a small world that I have known dad for even longer!). I’ve watched her grow from a teenager into a confident, beautiful, wonderful woman, mother and now soon to be wife! Their beautiful daughter is probably one of the most adorable children you could ever have a full conversation with (and she wasn’t even 3 when we did this shoot!). Seriously, the stuff she comes up with! I am so excited and can’t wait to photograph their big day!
Many, many moons ago, Erin and I became cousins through marriage and although the “cousin status” is not longer official, we have always kept in touch with each others lives (oh the magic of social media!). I have photographed Erin & Kyle’s family on numerous occasions over the last couple years, and their youngest daughters newborn shoot last year. They are a beautiful family (which I think is a vast understatement). These two are also huge inspirations to so many around them, both of them helping others gain control of their lives and their health through KPK Fitness. I see their posts on a regular basis, different exercises that can be done at home, with small children and at the gym. Their physiques are those to be envied (and trust me, being 18 weeks pregnant, I certainly envy them!). So I was excited they wanted to include that portion of their lives in their engagement photos. We had fun at their fitness studio with a series of fun shots between them and with their beautiful daughters.
I am looking forward to shooting their wedding, it’s coming up so quickly! And I’m also looking forward to having one of my dear and talented photographer friends, Stephanie from Stesha Bella Photography, shoot along side of me!
This wedding is going to be so much fun, I just know it!
This past fall I was happily involved in a surprise engagement! My dear friend Brandon was planning to propose and we talked about doing a ‘family’ shoot with the two of them and their dog during which he would pop the big question. I don’t know who was more nervous, me or him! The first half of the shoot we spent just shooting some nice couple photos with Harley. Then off in the seclusion of the little forest, we wrote a little message from Harley to his “mama”. I still laugh as I recall the sweet expletive that Amy used when he got down on one knee. Of course, we both were lovingly “yelled at” but the true happiness shined through. I am so blessed to be part of this and so happy for my friends. Amy is a very lucky woman, Brandon is the real deal. A real catch. But getting to know Amy over these years, we know that Brandon is also very lucky. Amy is a beauty, inside and out. She is his perfect match. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for these two!
