There is nothing like spending time with two people who are passionate about adventure. Since the beginning of their relationship, Courtney and Tom have spent so much of their time camping at different sites and seeing the world together, which made Taylor’s Falls the perfect spot to spend some time running around and celebrating their […]

It’s like I blinked and another season snuck up on me – It’s summer time, friends! I’m writing this blog post with such a full heart. I have felt overwhelmingly blessed by all of the Seniors sending in their inquiries and filling up the calendar for this summer. This year, I also welcomed the largest group of […]

Another Monday, another fun day! I can’t help but laugh at myself saying that, because I really am so jazzed about what we’re talking about today!

If the first time you meet a bride, she walks in with her arms opened wide, just hug her and never let her go. That was the first sign that Mary was the epitome of what I hoped Whitley B. Brides would look like, but since then I’ve learned that Mary & Brian are so much […]

I’ve said it before, but off season can be a blessing and a curse. Anyone who is not a photographer or small business owner in the wedding industry often has their jaw on the floor when they hear that we “work” 6 months out of the year and spend another 6 “off.” Here in Minnesota, […]

It all started with an email from a sweet girl named Lauren who called Arizona her home and was flying in for her wedding which was just a few months away. I had never read such sweet and calm emails from someone who was planning their wedding from over a thousand miles away. This was my […]

Happy  Friday everyone! Man, it feels good to say that today. Fri-YAY. Seriously, this week has been something! I have been sicker than I’ve been in a long while and I let a lot of things get away from me this week. My business was nearly screaming at me from behind the computer as the week […]
