Woooo!! Happy Halloween, everyone! As many of you know, every year we do an annual Halloween shoot for fun. The budget is always $100 — makes you think outside of the box when you give yourself a limit, plus I love a challenge. In the past years, we’ve covered cult classic films like Heathers and […]

We’ve been shooting a lot of smaller, intimate weddings this Fall and I’m loving every second of it! We have even tailored our wedding packages to include a special package for weddings under 40 people, so I’m really excited for that to take full effect in 2020. Stephanie and Max were married in their own […]

  Mississippi, Russia, Connecticut, Los Angeles — just a few of the places that people flew in from for Jess and Eddie’s wedding. With a party list fewer than twenty people, we had so much fun capturing this intimate gathering. Ingleside Vineyards is one of our favorite local wineries. Not only is their wine very […]

I spent all last week culling through all of the scenic and iPhone photos that I wanted to share on the blog this week and whoa, it was quite a task! I don’t think I’ve ever taken so many photos on travel. I eventually decided to split the blog post into two parts, covering the […]

Every portrait session is memorable for me. Sometimes, though, something absolutely insane happens to make them even more memorable. Brooke’s Senior session started out like most but it ended with me taking home two baby squirrels. What? You read that correctly. Let me rewind a bit. Like many sessions in late Summer, Brooke’s session was […]

There is a lot I’ve been working on behind the scenes to go along with the new rebrand.. I’ve hired an assistant! Yes, at last. This is something I’ve resisted for a long time because honestly.. I’m a bit of a control freak. But this has been an amazing step for our business and it’s […]

It’s been a pretty toasty Summer this year, let’s be honest. Normally for a July wedding you expect it to be warm — but you might not expect a heat index of 115! What can I say? Lexie and Sean (despite apparently bringing the heat) are an incredibly chill couple. We had so much fun […]

Meg loves the camera and the camera loves her back! This session was so much fun and I’ve been excited to blog it for a while now. My time with Meg was unique because I had my wonderful assistant follow us around and take some footage of the session actually happening — which if you […]

I realized over the weekend that I never blogged anything about Joey and I’s trip to Philly back in December. We went up for a quick weekend getaway to celebrate our five year anniversary. We got married right before Christmas at the end of 2013 so we always kind of lump the holidays and our […]
