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...

Carter + Steph | Engaged

  • A Quirk Hotel + Richmond Pipeline Engagement

I’ve been so excited for this session and it’s not because these two are cute and it’s not because of Steph’s style…even though those are both great reasons to get excited for a shoot! I have been looking forward to this shoot because Steph is such a dear friend of mine and I am so excited for her!! We were college roomies and I have always looked forward to the day when I would get the call that she had found “the one”. I remember it perfectly… I was pulling out of the Willow Lawn Shopping center and my phone was buzzing. I saw it was Steph and I had a funny feeling that it was an important call.

Happy “Hope” Day!

  • Easter 2016

Sometimes I feel like I’ve said the same thing for so long that it won’t make an impact. However, I know that that’s just a lie I’m believing. And the more I think about it, the more I feel convicted that there are just some things that can NEVER be shared too much! I’ve shared time and time again that my business is not my own. I don’t mean that someone else owns my company…. but kind-of. The thing is, I share a lot about my faith but I hope it never comes across and gimmicky or self-serving because here’s the truth: Without knowing what I LIVE for, my LIFE won’t make sense to you.

Heading to Hawaii : Hawaii Island and Oahu

  • Any Advice?!

Do you remember back in December when we surprised our parents with a TRIP TO HAWAII?! I think they would have rather heard that we were pregnant! haha But since that isn’t the case, Hawaii is probably the second best surprise!!! We are all SO excited about our trip and we can’t WAIT to share our favorite parts of Oahu with our parents! We traveled to Oahu two years ago and it was a trip of a life time! We just loved it!!! This time we’re spending a lot of time on Hawaii Island and we need your help!
