This session has been a long time coming! I met with Emily and Derek for the first time over Facetime last winter and I was so excited when I finally got to meet them for their engagement session! Emily and Derek knew each other in high school but did not start dating until years later […]

Katie and Matt officially got married in a small, intimate ceremony on their original June 6th date. However, they finally got to have the wedding of their dreams in late September at the church Matt grew up in and it was absolutely perfect!

Christa and Jordan started dating in high school briefly, but college and life changes forced them to take separate roads. However, after college, Jordan wanted to give it another try asking Christa out for a drink. They have been together ever since, buying a house, two dogs and are finally going to make it official […]

Here I thought it would be extremely hard to write a wedding blog about a wedding I didn’t actually get to photograph, but after looking through the images and living the story through photos, it actually made me feel like I was right alongside Jenny and Nick the entire day. I may have cried once […]

What a seriously fun evening I had with Courtney and Joey for their engagement session! Their sweet pup, Axle joined us in the beginning for some photos.

Kalea and Jordan’s wedding day was such a sweet and intimate event and I felt so lucky to be a part of it! They had originally planned to have a big wedding with all of their friends and family but when they realized that wasn’t possible, they shifted gears. Instead, they would say “I do” […]

I met Sam and Cory for the first time over Facetime in the Spring. I just knew they were going to be a fun couple after the first five minutes. I got to meet them before their engagement session when Cory was a groomsman in another wedding I had the pleasure of working on. It […]

Lauren and Zach’s wedding day was long awaited, but so completely worth the wait! They were originally supposed to get married in May, but covid obviously had different plans for them. They had to push it back to September, chang venues and then make cuts to their guest list, but finally their day arrived and […]

Corey has been one of Dustin’s best friends since childhood and when he started dating Abbie we pretty much became instant friends. I have loved watching them go through their relationship, then get engaged (seriously, Corey proposed after him and Abbie jumped out of a plane together!) and now as they prepare to get married.
