Many of my brides and friends will often ask, “do I really need a second shooter?” Essentially, the answer is no, but there are many benefits to having a second shooter.
Drew & Savanah couldn’t be any sweeter. Drew is an Air Force pilot and Savanah is an Air Force Public Affairs officer.
We’re slowly getting settled here in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We officially closed on our house in South Carolina last Friday and pretty soon, I guess we’ll become Michiganders.
It’s hard to believe that 5 years have already come and gone since John & I got married. We’ve called 3 states home & have probably traveled well over 50,000 miles. As I reflect on these last 5 years, I’m amazed at all the things we’ve accomplished in such a seemingly short amount of time. […]
By now, you’ve probably booked your venue and photographer, said “yes to the dress,” and maybe even sent out your save the dates. The planning is progressing and it’s time to draw out your timeline for your wedding day. Before you can really start the process you’ll need to determine a few things. 1. […]
I can’t believe another year has come and gone. Does time ever slow down? This year has been one for the books and one we won’t ever forget. In January, we sold our house and moved to west Michigan. I don’t think either of us knew what to expect, but we made it our mission […]
This Florida girl thoroughly enjoyed the cooler weather in Charleston this past weekend. It was the most beautiful day for James & Erin’s wedding. Sunny skies and a light cool breeze–it was the best! James & Erin live in Maryland now and chose to have a destination wedding to Charleston where they met. Though both […]
Our friends Kyle & Nikki welcomed their first child last Wednesday around one in the afternoon. Emersyn Ruth weighed 7 pounds and 8 ounces and was 21 inches long. Nikki chose to have a midwife and deliver naturally. All went seemingly well for this new mom-to-be. Her contractions started late Tuesday and roughly 16 hours […]
Have you ever dreamed a dream that seemed too good to ever be true? That’s how we felt until last Friday. After 8 long years of learning the business, John became a Chick-fil-A Owner/Operator for a store in Vero Beach, Florida! It’s been a tiresome, yet very rewarding journey. There have been months upon […]
I have a confession to make. I’ve written this blogpost probably 3-4 times. I’ve planned to make it public numerous occasions and somehow I always seem to delete the whole thing entirely. The truth is it’s hard to be vulnerable with the world. It’s difficult to share our intimate thoughts, especially in a world of […]
If you’re a fan of The Bachelor/Bachelorette and remember Ben Higgins, this wedding venue might look familiar as he took one of his group dates to the Marian Hills Farm in Indiana! How cool is that? Ann looked absolutely stunning on her wedding day. Everything was so simple, yet so elegant. Nathan and Ann had […]
I met Brooke several years ago through Chick-fil-A (that seems to be a recurring theme). She worked at John’s store and was in High School at the time. I convinced her to let me take her Senior portraits and she became my first real client in South Carolina. During her Senior year, I was also […]

I’m here to hopefully give you some insight from a photographer’s perspective, but also from personal experience.
