Our Home | The Kitchen Tour

  • A Double Island Contemporary Farmhouse Kitchen

This post has been a long time coming. It seems like it was years ago that I sketched out my dream kitchen on a scrap piece of paper! I saved that piece of paper until it was time to meet with a builder. Slowly that little sketch started to become a reality. When we decided to re-build our previous house but make some changes, the kitchen was the first room we focused on. We knew that if we wanted to continue to host large events and workshops, we wanted to make this room more functional.

Five Tips for Photographing Rings | Guest Post : Natalie Franke

  • Ask Anything

It seems like yesterday that I saw that this sweet photographer from Annapolis had gotten engaged. I had heard great things about her and was hoping to meet her one day… I never thought that I would get an inquiry from her! I ended up having the great honor of photographing Natalie and Huey’s wedding several years ago. This was the beginning of such a sweet friendship. Natalie has done some incredible things over the last several years and it has been an honor to walk beside her as a friend and peer in this amazing industry. I’m so honored to have her as a guest blogger today and I can’t thank her enough!!

5 Things Photographers Should Know About Videography | Guest Post : The Herrintons

  • Ask Anything

This last week and a half has seemed like a blur to me. We have an 11 day old (crazy!) and we’ve been slowly getting accustomed to our new life. Lots of laundry, diapers and surprisingly more sleep than we anticipated! PTL! Some people say that big babies sleep and eat really well and so far that’s true for Evy! Because life has been crazy, we are so grateful for friends who have stepped up and offered to guest blog for us!
