Brandi & Bryce have been clients/friends of mine for a couple of years and I got to capture their proposal last year!

I met Courtney and Jarrod a few years ago when Courtney was a bridesmaid in her friend’s wedding. We hit it off instantly and I have gotten to work with her in a couple of other weddings since. I have been eagerly waiting for Jarrod to pop the question because Courtney always told me I was […]
