Some friendships come from unexpected places and seasons. Matt’s always been there, but I’ve had the blessing of really seeing Matt for who he really is and enjoyed a deepened friendship as we’ve co-led a ministry at church and navigated our crazy lives the last couple of years. Matt has always been the funny, nice […]

When they’re your friends, right? It’s that much sweeter. We met at church…a part of the same tribe. You know how that is. We just clicked and I think they’re the coolest. Matt is a pain in the butt and doesn’t hold back his opinion in any of my dating life (secretly appreciated).  He sings […]

Maybe if I had Joanna’s guts, I wouldn’t be single right now. I love this woman. As soon as I met her, I just knew we’d connect and have fun. Anyone who knows her agrees that she is not only lovely on the outside, but her heart is so genuine and full of joy. She […]

Her adventurous spirit and gorgeous smile caught the eye of her husband, Lance. They found one another by a hashtag on Instagram. I’m not kidding! Such a fun story. […]

The idea of an intimate and romantic winter wedding served as the springboard of our inspiration for this shoot. I reached out to an incredibly talented […]

I’m sitting here at Panera editing, listening to anything uplifting and stuffing my face with carbs. Cause….for the rest of us..this day is National Single Awareness day or just Taco Tuesday,  lol.  Truly, the irony of my life is capturing the world’s love stories while I wait for decades for my own. My day started […]

Received an email out of the blue the other day from Huffington Post requesting to feature one of my images of a bride in a biker jacket. I feel so blessed to receive a nod for the fun biker jacket. So random and so fun and a much needed bolt of encouragement going into 2017. […]

Kicking off the new year with Maddi and Logan’s rainy day but totally adorable engagement session in Durham, NC. Maddi and Logan met at Liberty University which is my alma mater so it was fun reminiscing and chatting about the ginormous differences from when I was in school waaaaaaaay back when. As we walked around […]

Before the leaves are completely gone and the winter leaves summer far behind, I had to share Priya and Alex’s gorgeously vibrant engagement session. Duke is near and dear to their hearts so they decided to fly down from NJ and asked me to capture it for them. Their story in their own words: “Months […]
