Bruce + Britni | Engaged

  • A Summer Bull Run Winery Engagement Shoot

Whenever we’re up near the Bull Run Winery area and we pass the historic battlefields, I think about how much my husband loves history! If you didn’t know, Michael was a history major in college and he knows a few things! My favorite facts he shares…. (well, sometimes I’m embarrassed! :) is his facts about statues. Did you know that the stance of the horse tells how the soldier riding the horse died? Michael never fails to share this fun fact whenever we shoot in a historic location!! Thankfully, Bruce loves History just as much as Michael!!

The Reality Is…

  • Gray Summit 2015

The reality is that just when I think I have my “stuff” together…. I learn that I don’t. Yes, I’m organized with our business and yes we have some good stuff going on but there are parts of my business that needed help and I didn’t even KNOW it until this past week! Zach and Jody invited us and a small group of close friends to their home in Nashville for a mastermind type of event. I was a bit intimidated because honestly, I’m a small fish in a big ole pond when it comes to accomplishments and life experience in this group!!
