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!Β  Read more...

Rustic Downtown Engagement Shoot

  • Promo Film Shoot | Part I

know, Josh Gooden and I have been working on a project since early spring and I just announced that my PROMO VIDEO was done! Yessss!! (You can view it here too!)I still get so excited when I think about how LONG I have wanted to get this accomplished. It feels good to check that off the “Branding to-do” list! When I was preparing for this I knew exactly who to ask to be my models. Ali, Manny, Buddy and Jill are all amazing friends of ours from college and they are also clients. Their weddings were two of my all time favorites and all four of them are so natural in front of the camera.

I’m guessing that was from the allergies I’ve been fighting all week, shooting a wedding on Saturday and then the combination of yelling over 60 teenagers at youth group last night. Our weekends are long… really long. On Saturday and Sunday when the rest of the world is relaxing and gearing up for a new week…. Michael and I are working. So today, as Michael got ready to head off to the office and I laid in bed, 1/2 dead… he told me to take the day off. Β Even though I was only about 15% coherent at that time, I heard what he said and I decided it was a great idea.
