To His Grandmas!

  • Bokeh's Says Thank You

and I realize that once we have a family one day, we can’t necessarily travel the way we do now. Our schedules will have to subside and our days and evenings will be spent at home more often. But for right now, we’re young and we don’t have any kids…. except Bokeh Boy. Every time we have a long weekend or an all day event of some kind, he goes to one of his grandparent’s houses. We are SO thankful that they are only 50 minutes away and that they love him! There are some dogs that aren’t the easiest to care for and so we’re beyond thankful that our mom’s are constantly willing to take him.

  • Best of Engagements 2013

You saw my “Best of Weddings 2013”. Today I’m posting the “Best of Engagements”! It’s really interesting to think about what I consider a “good image” these days. My goal several years ago was to define my style more and more with every shoot. Engagement sessions were my time to do that. During an eshoot I have control, time, and complete freedom to be creative. Well now that I have a pretty defined style, the challenge is to continue to perfect my work without growing stale…. and that’s actually very hard to do. I know the formula.


A Year in Review

  • Best of Weddings 2013

Here it is! The biggest post of the year…and this post will probably crash my blog because there are WAY too many images included!! I just couldn’t pick one favorite from each wedding… that’s way too hard! So I have selected and gathered all of the images that make me FEEL something! These are the images that made me proud this past year. And while some may seem ordinary to you, they all have a special place in my heart for random reasons! Maybe it was the composition, the light or even the situation it was shot in. Whatever it was, somehow these images made my “Favorites” list for 2013 and I can’t wait to share this pretty post! Enjoy!!
