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...

Jazz Nativity 2018

Can you believe that I have been blogging about our church’s JAZZ NATIVITY for 8 YEARS now?! 8 YEARS. That just blows my mind. I couldn’t remember all of the songs that I’ve sang if I tried! It all seems like a beautiful blur. This has been one of my favorite traditions since Michael and I got married. If you’re thinking this is your standard church “Christmas program”, think again! Jazz Nativity is far from anything you’ve probably ever seen a church do during Christmas season… especially a church in the suburbs!

Seth + Madison | Engaged

  • A Classic Desert Engagement Shoot

You know how great it feels to be around someone who just makes you feel like you can be 100% yourself? It’s the best feeling! That’s how we feel around Seth and Madison! These two are incredibly laid back and joyful. Their entire engagement session was filled with laughter, and Michael and I loved every second of it! I know Madison because she recently attended one of our workshops! She spent 2 days making everyone laugh in our living room, and when I received her email that she was engaged I knew that I wanted to shoot her wedding! Her laugh and her happiness are contagious. You can’t help but love being around her!!
