I am so excited that you're here! This is where I share my latest sessions, personal photos, and funny life stories. You'll quickly hear about my obsessive cleaning habits, my adorable pup, and probably a little something about fruit pizza (only the best food ever created). So grab a drink (something iced for me... yes, even in the winter), and scroll through the archives!

Benjamin & Alicia | Engaged Woodsy Engagement Session at Hone Quarry Ridge

 I cannot say enough wonderful things about Benji & Alicia! They are two of the sweetest, funniest, most caring people I have ever met. Their engagement session was so perfectly ‘them’, and it was an honor to be chosen to capture this season of their lives! Benji has been very close friends with Jenny & Thomas for years, and he was even in the wedding! We all go to church together, but it was so much fun getting to spend some more time getting to know them both.

Alicia had the idea to have their session at Hone Quarry Ridge, and it was the perfect location for them! We hiked to this beautiful waterfall, somehow found a ‘rainforest’ in January, and ended the night with a campfire + s’mores.

 They are getting married at the end of February, and I am so excited to be their photographer! Benji & Alicia are absolutely perfect for each other, and it is sure to be one amazing wedding.

Aren’t their outfits just the best??


Love love love the one on the left! Too adorable.


Alicia pulls off bangs SO much better than I could ever dream to!



By this point it was almost completely dark outside, but we still wanted to build a fun campfire! I actually really love how these turned out, because they remind me of a real date night <3

Congratulations, you two! Every time I see these pictures I just get even more excited about your wedding day :)

    Hi–I haven’t commented before, but I really enjoy reading your blog and learning from all of your posts. I love the new design you have, but I have one comment to make about the color of the font of your blog posts(not the title, but the content of the posts). It’s just a bit too light to read compare to the rest of colors. If it could be just a little darker, that would be great. I know you take your time planning all of this so I thought you might want to know. I love your work! :)

    You are so sweet to mention that! I was wondering if it wasn’t a bit too light, but on my end it was very easy to read. Thank you so much for letting me know! I changed it to a darker color :)

    It looks great–sorry I was busy at work and completely forgot to respond the other day. Keep up the good work!
