We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

Ben + Sabrina | Married

  • A Berry College Anniversary Session in Rome, Georgia

I wish I had more time to do anniversary photos. I love these sessions because they are a celebration of the journey that has been completed and the journey that is yet to come! Sabrina contacted me months and months ago about doing portraits at the Connect Retreat. Now, I’ve known these two for a long time. Sabrina came to my workshop WAY back in the day with so many others who are now dear friends of ours!

Michael is Turning 30!!!

  • Happy Birthday!

It feels really surreal to be writing this. I think it’s easier for couples who met each other in the mid-twenties to celebrate BIG birthdays. It’s not weird to celebrate your spouse turning 30 when you met him/her at age 24! When you’ve known your spouse since you were a LITTLE kid, it’s a different experience to celebrate their 30th birthday!! I remember when Michael was TWELVE!!!! We started dating when he was 17!!! And now he’s THIRTY?! It’s so crazy! I’ve literally known my husband my entire life and sometimes I feel like we take that for granted.

Don’t Forget Your Dress Practice!

  • Wedding Wednesday

This may sound like a no-brainer but if it was a no-brainer, I wouldn’t be blogging about it! There are a lot of brides who have NEVER put on their dress outside of the dress shop!! I was the weirdo who tried on her dress like every evening because I was so excited!! However, my dress was really easy to put on. I could put it on by MYSELF! It had one simple ZIP in the back and that’s it! However, there are a lot of dresses that require much more than just a simple ZIP! These are the dresses that I’m referring to today in this post!
