Sydney and Tyler might possibly be the most laid back couple I have this year! I showed up to one of the farms that Tyler works on for their engagement session and the wind was crazy howling. My first thought was poor Sydney was going to have to deal with hair all in her face […]

Rain came down sideways the morning of Rachel and Jared’s wedding day. Rachel was putting her final touches on as we watched it pour, but she kept so calm and had so much faith. Later, I found out that Jared’s grandmother told them she would send a rainbow to them on their wedding day and […]

The first time I think I actually met Sammy and Mitch was one a dance floor at a wedding when they absolutely tore it up! I went on to see them at several weddings throughout the next few years and even told them at one “someday this will be you, we will be celebrating your […]

I had been looking forward to Michelle and Charles’s wedding day for quite some time now. I met them about 5 years ago when Charles’s aunt hired me to photograph their extended family one Thanksgiving. The entire family was so welcoming and I really enjoyed getting to know them all! I even remember that day, […]

I have known Brittany since her son, Alexander was born. I have gotten to photograph him and watch him grow right before my camera. I have enjoyed so many times getting to catch up with Brittany and watching her grow as a mom. I was elated when she told me she had met someone who […]

Kelsey and JT are so cute together! I have known them both for a while but I got to photograph them once before during a family session and I just knew instantly they were perfect for each other. I was ecstatic when they got engaged and asked me to photograph their wedding! JT proposed to […]

I felt instantly comfortable with Sarah and Justin after their first few poses. They told me they were awkward in front of a camera but Justin pulled her close and they instantly starting giggling through it all. We explored downtown Springfield first and then made our way to a gorgeous open field at sunset. I […]

Every year, my parents and their friends like to escape to Florida for part of the winter and every year, my “honorary cousin” (our dads are best friends), Kelly and I just show up to take advantage of their house! Kelly and her fiancĂ© (now husband!), Tyler have been engaged for a few years now […]

I became instant friends with GiAnna and Austin when I met them. They were both in a wedding I photographed this summer (*shoutout Lauren and Zach!*) and I just loved getting to know them! GiAnna told me she had hoped a proposal was coming but would get ahold of me when it did! Little did […]

Last year, I got to photograph so many adorable, engaged couples! Engagement sessions are my absolute favorite sessions because most times, it is the first time couples have been in front of the camera together. Usually, they tell me they are nervous and they feel like they are awkward together, but that is my favorite […]
