The Reality Is….

  • Being a Husband/Wife Team Isn't Easy

I don’t want this to come across as me not being grateful…. I’m so very grateful for this season of our life. But if I can be honest…. working together as a husband/wife team is HARD. It’s not this fairytale that some people think it is. Don’t get me wrong… it’s AWESOME to not be bound by a schedule and to have the freedom to create the life that we want… but everything comes with a price. The price we have to pay is struggling with life balance, the battle of trying not to step on each other’s toes, the little fights we have over our “tones” and most importantly, trying not to argue about who’s fault it was that we lost a lens cap. :)

Justin + Megan | Engaged

  • A Cape May Date-Night Inspired Engagement Shoot

Megan is one of those people that has a warm presence about her that makes you feel like you’ve known her for years. We actually did meet a couple of years ago and I remember her saying that she was dating the guy she was going to marry but it just felt like “marriage” was SO far away. I don’t remember exactly what I told her but I believe that I said something like …. “It’s going to be here before you know it!!!” and here we are!! Megan and Justin got engaged during a trip to Europe and it was straight out of a fairytale with a castle in the background! ah! What a dream!
