They are one

of those couples that makes your heart melt.  I’m not being mushy and cheesy, I’m serious. I met Jess and Ken at Rebekah and Matt’s Wedding and my first thought was… “Well if they’re friends with Rebekah and Matt, they are probably awesome people!”… and I was right! We emailed back and forth and then set up a time to meet.  They came to my little office and we talked about everything under the sun…including their VA beach wedding that was coming up in June.   They booked and almost instantly, Rebekah messaged me exclaiming how excited she was that I was going to get to work with her amazing friends. You know, when your

Good Things

Cute Bags & A Contest!

I’ve mentioned

before that I’m not really a shoe person. I have HUGE feet and those cute little heels in the window aren’t so cute when they are DOUBLED in size! So because I’m NOT a shoe girl, I have become a Jewelry and a BAG girl!! I love jewelry and I love BAGS!! All types of bags. Big bags, small bags, HUGE bags… Bags are just fun! I love getting a new purse and switching all my junk over and instantly feeling like a new person!!! Please tell me I’m not the only one that gets that feeling.  So today, if you’re a guy and you follow the blog, this post only applies to you if you’re the super sweet type and want to win something for your momma/wife/girlfriend!

Josh + Mandy

The DIY Victorian Garden Themed Wedding

Ever since

I met these two, I have loved them. Everyone loves them. When I’m asked to think of awesome couples in my life, I have a bunch that come to mind and Mandy and Josh are always in the mix.  They are just two amazing people and so as a couple, they are incredible.  I really hate having to try to explain how awesome my friends are in a matter of two or three paragraphs because it’s just not possible. No words can possibly describe the JOY and EXCITEMENT of their wedding this past Saturday.  I’ve been waiting for this day since I got the call from Josh that he was going to propose and he wanted me to hide out and photograph it! I knew this wedding was going to be one of my favorites,

His 26th

Middle-Parts, Blue Mascara & our First Dance

Today marks

a very important day! …. Michael would tell you other wise because he’s never been one of those big “birthday people”.  I happen to be a “birthday person”. I love my birthday and I expect everyone else to love it too! I mean, aren’t we all allowed to love one day out of the year and claim it as OURS?! Birthday’s are fun! And they don’t happen very often and so I believe that they should be celebrated! Unfortunately, this year  Michael is going to have to celebrate while studying and taking a final exam.  Really? That’s just not fair. Bokeh and I will just have to have a party at home without him.

The Gift of Friends

and Photography
FRIEND'S-WEDDINGS

When I started

into this crazy world of photography, I remember thinking that this career would be fun and exciting if I could actually get the hang if it!  I loved the idea of a home office, traveling, meeting new couples and having the ability to be CREATIVE with my work!! However, there is one aspect of this job that I didn’t consider and that was the fact that I was starting my business at the same time that a TON of my best friends were about to be engaged. For some reason, this never CLICKED with me.  I never thought “Oh if I could shoot a ton of FRIENDS weddings that would be a huge help for my business!
