When I first met Darci, I felt like I had known her for years! She is kind, smart, and extremely photogenic! Surprisingly, she told me that she was pretty nervous about the session, but she could have fooled me! Darci posed effortlessly and needed next to no posing guidance! You better believe I’m going to […]

Savannah and Arell’s micro wedding, at the Providence Cotton Mill, was so sweet and emotional!  From the first look with her dad, to the couple’s private vow reading, we were all in tears!  They will be welcoming a baby girl soon, which made the day even more special! The soft florals and greenery were so […]

When Aubree walked out for her bridal portraits, she literally stopped me in my tracks!  She looked like royalty and her gown was so stunning and detailed!  She carried a soft pink bouquet full of peonies and roses, which completed the entire look!  Let me tell you, this girl is just as sweet as she […]

When Stetson shows up to a branding shoot, she comes to PARTY!!  This fabulous lady is my muse so I’m always looking for an excuse to get her in front of my camera! I recently teamed up with Belle’s Place to help design a setup for their vintage airstream.  So when it came time to […]

Taylor and Tyler’s wedding, at Blackberry Cove, was truly the dreamiest of weddings!  We have all been captivated by their fairytale for many years and their special day was just as amazing as they are!  I feel like I’ve waited an eternity to share this wedding and it’s been such a blessing being a part […]

For Taylor’s bridal session, we wanted a soft and elegant indoor setting.  New Beginnings Historic Farm was the perfect place!  Thank goodness we opted for indoor because it was freezing temperatures and insanely windy! Taylor got to experience everything the farm has to offer because she also spent her bachelorette weekend here doing goat yoga […]

Jamie and Sam met while working together and there was an immediate connection.  Funny enough, it was my own dad that suggested Sam should ask Jamie out on a date!  The same week they met, Sam was planning to move back to Pennsylvania and even had a job interview lined up!  But after meeting Jamie, […]

When Morgan and I started collaborating on an airstream photoshoot, I knew it was going to be a blast!  She has recently turned her working cattle farm into a photography venue and offers tons of props!  Including a vintage airstream! Belle’s Place, named after her prized holstein cow, is the perfect destination for portrait sessions!  […]

Cheyenne’s maternity session was so beautiful and whimsical!  Her first maternity session with me was during freezing temperatures and high winds.  Her second may have still been windy, but at least it was warm! When she was pregnant with her first child, she told me that she wanted to do some river shots with her […]

This romantic engagement session, at Baker Buffalo Creek, was so much fun!  Jessica is a former bridesmaid of mine so, of course, I was ecstatic when she reached out about photographing her wedding!  We had originally planned to do their session in the mountains, but after hearing about a severe wind advisory we decided to […]
