  • Coaching

month was full of new adventures! One being a destination coaching session! This happened randomly! We were planning some engagement shoots in Chicago when I was asked if I would do a coaching session while I was there and I thought “Well why not?!”. It was so wonderful meeting Kelly and getting a little mini-tour of Chicago!! Michael and I would really love to traveling and do more destination coaching style workshops & sessions in the future but we need to know where to go! So if you’re out there and you’re reading this, leave a little comment for us if you think we should come to a certain area!!

How To Shoot Bridal Details Consistently

A long time ago…. like a year ago I believe, I create a few mini videos for my website company Showit to use for a project they were working on. I recently realized that I NEVER shared them with my people!!! …. and that’s you guys! :) I receive questions weekly asking about anything from what I wear to weddings to how do you shoot bridal details and how do you do it consistently? This details question is a great one! It’s hard to shoot really awesome, cohesive details when you only have 30-40 minutes before the bride is getting in her dress!

Foyer Makeover | Stripes & Clocks

  • The New House

wild ideas sometimes. Luckily Michael trusts my crazy ideas and he’s sweet enough to help me make these ideas come life! I said a LONG time ago that I wanted to paint thick, horizontal stripes down the foyer of the new house. I have been envisioning this for such a long time but I knew that I would have to be patient! This was going to be a DIY project for us and it wasn’t going to be easy. Michael and I hosted two cookouts last weekend and that was the perfect motivation to get this project done! Michael bought the paint, the laser level and the tape and he went to town.
