When the hustle and the glamor and the glitter and the design sit right behind the emotion, a wedding like this is born. Perfectly thought through and perfectly planned, but still - authentic and rich with real, powerful emotion. These two are magic, and their taste is wonderful.
I've known her since before I went by three names. Kelsey is one of those friends that's just been there forever but I've never seen her quite like this. We don't hang out like we used to, life happens after college - but to see her this happy means everything.
I've been waiting for this shoot from the very first click I took of Tracy years ago when she was modeling. To hold the camera and simply watch these two flirt was almost too easy.
This trip to Tulum, Mexico was absolute perfection. The best weather, the best resort, and the best couple gave us everything we needed to soak up some sun and enjoy an amazing wedding weekend.
I don't shoot a ton of seniors these days - but I may be just about willing to change that. Meet Bella, Senior, Model, Rockstar. This session was amazing - I think you'll agree.
Two wonderful friend's wedding in Plymouth, Massechusetts set the stage for a day full of incredible photos. I absolutely love the way this wedding turned out from the incredible first look with beached boats and still bay water in the background to the stunning sun set session through the dust on one of the most beautiful golf courses in New England. I'm so excited to finally show these two off.
This Northwest Arkansas Engagement Session was absolutely stunning. These two wandered all over the area with us as we planned their big day, soaked up a little southern sun, and enjoyed the chance to have a little adventure together.
Yep. It's broken - and the truth is - that was my good leg. Fortunately, I'm barely slowing down right now. We've got a crew around me, and an amazing family supporting me and crutches or no crutches we're all determined to have a blast for the rest of the summer.
Just to be asked to be a part of this wedding was an honor. To spend an afternoon chasing around Camille + David and to witness just how perfect they are together was something completely special for me. // “So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”

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
This engagement session in Northwest Arkansas was shot completely in the rain and the end result was perfect. One of my very favorite engagement sessions in a long time and they did all the hard work for me. HUGE shoutout to these two for being so willing! //

Two absolutely genuine people spending the afternoon wandering around the hills on the Missouri line.

When I am old and alone, I will remember that I once held something truly beautiful.”

"Think of your family today and every day thereafter, don’t let the busy world of today keep you from showing how much you love and appreciate your family." - Josiah // A pretty rare glimpse on the other side of the camera on a Sunday at our house.
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!

"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.
