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...

My Brother is ENGAGED! 

  • Corey + Morgan’s Proposal Story!

I really can’t believe that I’m writing this! It seems surreal to me! I had hoped for this, we had all prayed for this…. but ultimately, we knew that we just had to trust that God was in control and that he had a really beautiful plan. Well, like always, his plan is always better than ours and it’s always more perfectly timed. Two years ago my sister told me that she had just had dinner with our long-time family friends, the Duvalls. We have known this sweet family our whole lives and our parents have been close friends since before they got married! They have two daughters and it just so happened that their youngest, Morgan, was at the house the night that my sister and her husband Joe were there for dinner.

  • Europe Adventure 2016

Two weeks ago Michael and I left for a trip to photograph our first European destination wedding in France! It was a dream come true!! However, our adventure didn’t end there! Our good friends Jordan and Amy were also in Europe for a shoot and we planned to meet up after our work was done!! I’ll be honest, when we have a destination wedding… or really ANY wedding… that’s my only focus. Michael gets us there and I shoot my little heart out. So, when people asked me where we were going in Europe… I honestly had no idea. Michael and Jordan planned the entire trip and Amy and I just followed them around!
