Courtney was concerned she “wouldn’t be as beautiful as the other brides in our galleries” – that she would get her photographs back and only focus on the parts of herself she doesn’t like. You see Courtney has been following our work for over 10 years! She loved how we photographed others, and told us […]

Let me tell you about 2015.
It was the year of RAIN. Lots of rain. (I had more rainy wedding days this year than my past 4 seasons combined!)
It was the year I really worked to find a black and white processing I love and fell hard for what grainy, contrasty black and white can add to an image to showcase emotion. (Though I have always adored B&W…for whatever reason this year it took center stage for me.)
It was also the year of my rebranding and really focusing on attracting my ‘ideal clients’–those that adore each other, life and look at a wedding as the beautiful beginning of something much bigger vs. just a pretty Pinterest party.
I was looking to find my fellow ‘glamorous, fearless and fiery’ souls who want to to squeeze out every once of this life has to offer via travel, adventures, friends, food, wine and typically…pets.
..And man, did I.
