Happy Saturday! This year has been a whirlwind. I can’t believe all of the things that has happened this year. I’m so beyond blessed to be able to say 2019 was one of the best years of my life. A year of change, a year of following my heart, a year full of leaps of faith. Thank you everyone who has trusted me and believed in me this year. My heart is grateful. My heart is beyond full. Second shooting for the wonderful @bkenseyphotos

Those colours around the two of them 😍 I swear autumn weddings may be my fav 😍👰🤵
It’s hard to believe that this photo is from December with that beautiful, golden sunshine. And yes, I’m talking about Taylor! 😉
In all seriousness I am so thankful for all of the amazing clients I’ve had this year! So thankful for the weddings, engagements, and families that put their trust in me as a photographer! I cannot wait to see what 2020 holds for myself and my business!
If you’re an aspiring photographer, my advice to you is to KEEP learning! Everywhere and from everyone you can! Do workshops, choose a mentor, shadow someone, watch YouTube videos, find your style and your brand! One step at a time! ❤️

These brothers are the best. As soon as the music started their dad looked at me and said, “now you’re gonna have something to photograph”. He was not wrong, when these three get together on the dance floor they do not disappoint. ⠀

One of our popular sites is the beautiful Valley of Fire!
It’s about 45 miles north of Las Vegas and it’s desert environment rich in stunning rock formations makes it worth the drive!

I think we need some warm tones on this chilly day 🥶
O how high would I climb mountains
If the mountains were where You hide
O how far I'd scale the valleys
If You graced the other side
O how long have I chased rivers
From lowly seas to where they rise
Against the rush of grace descending
From the source of its supply
They took me to the place where they go running together. Where they train for marathons together. If you've ever trained for a marathon, you know how much time that puts them on this awesome greenway. They let me into one of their spots, and the imagery we got was absolutely beautiful. I love how both of them were so fun and were just themselves, and I can't ask for anything more than authenticity in a couple. See more of their engagement photos on my blog.

Me and @the_videogirl had the most amazing time hanging out with Morgan & Seth and capturing some true love in #tampa ! These two were a blast to work with and had us feeling like old friends from the start. Can't wait to capture this epic wedding next year!

Quiet little moments. Little did I know this model was pregnant when I took this pic. .
Winter is not my favorite season, I’m not gonna lie, but THIS view makes a season I can get behind

It’s been gloomy as heck here today (which I personally love), but here’s some sunny mountain lovin’ for this Friday evening! I hope y’all have the best weekend. I’m 2nd shooting a wedding tomorrow, and then we’re just chillin’ on Sunday. It’s our only completely off day before the craziness of the holidays begins. My mom will be here from Alaska + Miles’ sister will be in town from Hawaii. Hahaha how did we end up with our closest relatives the furthest away possible?! Stoked to see them! Stoked to just chill out. I hope you find some down time during this season!
Thanks @lo_behold.style for reminding me it’s okay to step out of your comfort zone 🤘🏻

Let me tell you, I am obsessed with little detail shots. Someday you’ll want to know the exact way their arms wrapped around yours or the way your hands draped over them. -
I’m sure I’ve said this a million times, but it is so important to find a photographer that has an eye for capturing the little things just as much as the big. Your first kiss as a married couple? I’ve got that. But I’ve also got the little times your hands touch when no one is looking, the earrings your grandmother gave you, and the tears your mom is wiping away when no one can see. -
Images should recall emotions and capture the most important moments of your life in a freeze frame! And that’s probably my favorite part about my job. ❤️

Spent my Friday morning listening to Harry Styles new album and baking some goods🙌🏽 Happy weekend everyone!!
Booked the coolest little cottage (which looks directly out at the ocean 🤯) in Liscannor, Ireland last night. It’s also just a quick, five minute venture to the Cliff’s of Moher from it, too... which just so happens to be one of the many, beautiful locations we’ll be exploring with our couple during our ten day expedition + their elopement this coming April (eek!) ✨
Then it really hit us. It hit us that this is all REALLY happening. We’re meeting you guys from basically everywhere in the world, exploring all around with you, getting lost in the experience + telling your story in the process (how freakin’ cool 🤘🏼). You’re sincerely our greatest friends and we couldn’t be more thankful for all of you inviting us to share in your wildest adventures 🏔
These are the dreams we truly live for, y’all. The planning, traveling SO far away, storytelling + every little thing in between. We just feel so incredibly blessed for it all 💫
Our anniversary is another great occasion to tell you how much I love and appreciate you. I am so lucky to have you as my husband, lover, and best friend! There are no words in this world, which may express my feelings for you. I am so blessed to be your wife, friend, and partner.
Happy Anniversary Hubby🖤😘 7 years and an ♾ to go...⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

How you feel when you win a free week at a AAA resort in Mazatlan, Mexico during the 10th anniversary of your mom's passing & 4 days before your birthday; & your hubby agrees to be spontaneous and book the flights with less than 2 weeks out. Only to turn around & book flights to Hawaii in April the next day so you can go with your best friends 😭💘
📢 Buy an RV, book the flights, take the trips, make the memories. Feed your soul with adventures & experiences. Live with less so you can LIVE MORE.
Let travel heal you from the inside out🙏
Big shout out to this sweet lady @doctorshannon for giving away a week at her beautiful condo! If you love a good podcast check hers out at Women Sipping on Life on iTunes and Stitcher 💃
•• Phuket, Thailand ••
Where do I even start here? Back when I lived in Nashville, Abby reached out for me to photograph an engagement session after Paul proposed to her in Paris a few months prior. We head out to Rock Island State Park a little outside the city to get a little lost and frolic in a grassy field since the waterfall was closed due to high water. However, after our engagement session we all hung out by our cars and talked for what seemed like 30 minutes. They told me about the proposal, Paul told me about his music, and Abby described her job - ya know, just normal conversation for three humans that just met each other.
A few months later they asked me to join them in Thailand for their intimate wedding and join along with their closest friends and family. Of course I did my happy dance for weeks straight and booked my flight as soon as possible. Like woah this is the furthest I’ve traveled for a wedding thus far in my career.
Fast forward to October - wedding week was here!
After landing and tucking our things into the resort to make it home for a few days, we all met up to board a private yacht to James Bond Island, kayaked into caves, feed elephants at a retirement park, enjoyed course after course of Thai eats at the most gorgeous rehearsal dinner at Project Artisan - creating the most beautiful memories. Watching Abby and Paul exchange vows, dance the night away, and sneak the sweetest looks at one another was something so special to witness. The thing about Abby and Paul is that as soon as you see them and how they interact with each other, you know they have such an adorable relationship and truly are best friends. They are goofy in love and you can see that from the opposite side of the room. They both radiate an aura that harmonize so perfectly together.
Following along on this journey was magical.
Wishing you two all the happiness this world has to offer ♡
