Hey guys! Things have been really hectic around these parts, hence all of the silence! (Insert cricket noises here!) We are so sorry about that! BUT - the good news is that we have A TON going on behind the scenes and will be blasting you with some updates/changes! VERY soon that you don't want to miss. (Booty dance goes here!) (_|_)(_/_)(_|_)(_\_)(_|_)!

Until then, I did want to pop in and let you know about a workshop for wedding/party planners and designers that my dear f...riend Rhiannon Nicole Bosse with Hey Gorgeous Events hosts every year called the Trouvaille Workshop. I was lucky enough to have been asked to photograph it back in August in October, and trust me when I say this, IT BLEW ME AWAY. All of it. The experience. The speakers. The heart. The attendees. I had THE best time, and I was WORKING it. She is hosting another one in North Carolina this Spring and tickets/registration just went live. Seats go FAST and I assure you that you don't want to miss out on this.

Head here to get your ticket! You know you wanna! DO IT. DO IT.

I think there is nothing more fulfilling and heart warming as a photographer when you have taken a couple's save the dates, engagements, wedding and now, maternity photos. This beautiful couple has blessed me in so many ways and I can't wait to see them as parents. Their baby Declan is the luckiest, already. 💗

This week has been so crazy, that I completely missed our feature on Magnolia Rouge the other day! I am so excited to have had this shoot in print and featured in their latest magazine. A big shout out to PhotoVision, Makenzi Laine-Professional Makeup Artist, Birch & Brass Vintage Rentals, Katy Bohls (Without Wax Katy), and The Ivy Retreat for helping me put this shoot together.

You can see more here: http://magnoliarouge.com/bridal-session-by-the-river/

P.s.) This was my first ever solo shoot in FILM. The moment I got these scans back was what sealed the deal for my transition to film photography.

This shoot by the darling Shalyn from LOVE, THE NELSONS is one of the most stunning bridals I’ve seen!! The vintage gown from THE IVY RETREAT, the river location, the beautiful make-up by MAKENZIE LAINE and the exquisite florals by WITHOUT WAX, KATY… pure goodness. Which of course is why it was a no…
