Young love and amazing friends made this Fayetteville wedding day special. It was a perfect spring day to say "I do" and these are a few of my very favorite moments. // If I had a single flower for every time I think of you, I could walk forever in my garden. Claudia Adrienne Grandi
Two absolutely genuine people spending the afternoon wandering around the hills on the Missouri line. This Northwest Arkansas engagement session was the perfect way to sum up two of the sweetest people I know. // “I took a photo of us mid-embrace. When I am old and alone, I will remember that I once held something truly beautiful.”
—Joe Dunthorne, Submarine

In short I will part with anything for you but you. Mary Wortley Montagu // This wedding was an absolute dream. I'm always floored by the opportunity to hang out on an island and call it work, but when I get to do it with Melissa it's even better. SO grateful for these two and their incredible families.
The authentic self is soul made visible. - Sarah Ban Breathnach // This boho styled engagement shoot was full of craft beer, big views, and a healthy dose of man bun. Sofia + Jeremy are two of the most authentic people I can imagine and this shoot was perfectly them.
SUPER excited to have received this bag in from a cool little Minnesota based bag company called Portage Supply Co. Check out a full review as well as a bunch of photos of this thing as I chat through why I think this may be one of the coolest looking camera backpacks on the market today!
"The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry // An afternoon catching up with one of my very favorite couples and watching their love.
"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird, I would fly about the Earth seeking the successive autumns." - George Eliot // Falling in love with fall in this perfectly lit session. Crisp air, gorgeous people, and incredible scenery did most of the work for me.
“When I saw you I fell in love. And you smiled because you knew.” ~ William Shakespeare // This session was absolutely the most incredible part of a great week. From the moment it started misting and the wind picked up the potential was for these two to get nervous but they completely embraced the moments and had a blast with everything that came there way.
This whole wedding gave me chills. Of course it was freezing - but the story behind it is absolutely powerful. No quotes needed, just 100 images, 48 hours after Amanda + Brad said "I do" and some of the most powerful moments I've ever shot.
"For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have. And if you go to draw at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant is its flow." -Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list." -Susan Sontag
Born for adventure, he strides on down the path that never ends. Stopping every now and then to observe the scenery and take in the view, he strides onward still, in search of something new. Something exciting. Adventure. He has only ever known one thing: to put one foot in front of the other in search of that which few have attained but many have sought. To see, to experience, and to share with others in an unforgettable way.
