A Lavender Inspired Backyard Wedding

  • Travis + Shannon

The officiant knew them well. She and her husband are dear friends of Travis and Shannon’s and so their ceremony was more personal than most. After Shannon walked down the aisle, the pastors shared that these two had waited and dreamed of this day for SO so long. They were high school sweethearts and they were beating the odds. Most high school sweethearts don’t make it this far and they did!! Travis and Shannon started dating in high school and then did long distance throughout college. After YEARS of saying goodnight and leaving each other at the end of evening, the were finally getting married and those days of saying goodnight are over!!! Michael and I remember those days well. It was such a welcomed change to never say goodbye at the end of the evening and to officially live together!! Travis and Shannon have officially started their new life together and it’s exciting!

2014 4th of July

  • Bokeh's First Camping Trip

been told that we’re obsessed with our dog… and I would have to agree that those accusations are true. We love him. He bring so much JOY into our lives everyday and he’s really more than anything we ever hoped for in a puppy!! Smart, obedient, non-shedding, adorable and photogenic. :) He is all of those things! His modeling skills can actually come across as being a little creepy because he has a very “human-like” smile when he’s happy! Speaking of being happy, Bokeh boy was THRILLED when brought him with us on our 4th of July camping trip!!

Our Love for Jimmy Fallon

  • Good Things

You may wonder what the point is for our “Good Things” category on the blog. Does this really have ANYTHING to do with photography? Or business? No, not really. But I actually think that if I thought about it long enough, I could make a parallel between Jimmy Fallon’s strong following and our approach to creating community with our brand! ha! But I’ll save that for another day. :) Our random “Good Things” posts are just little posts where I share about things we love. Right now, one of the things we’re loving is Jimmy Fallon.
