Stephanie and Chris are such a sweet and kind-hearted couple. I have known Stephanie’s family for a really long time and she is definitely the shy one of the group, but Chris is her talkative other half who bring out so much in Stephanie. I love photographing their engagement session and getting to see them […]

I met Taylor many years ago as we went to the same high school. She was always a positive and upbeat person and boy is it so awesome seeing her so happy with Cameron! Cameron is such a laid back, hilarious guy who keeps Taylor laughing with his simple jokes. It is so obvious how […]
