I’ve been shooting weddings for around 12 years now, but this was my first ever New Year’s Eve wedding! I don’t know how it’s never happened before, but I was so glad to get to be at Ashley and Ian’s wedding at White River Landing.  New Year’s Eve Wedding at White River Landing Your wedding […]

Cowboy Wedding

One thing I love about my job is how I get to meet all different types of people from different places. Katy and Bryson were not like most of my couples. They are from Texas and way more cowboyish (is that a word?) than most people around here. None of that really matters, though, because […]

Two day wedding Celebration

2020 was such a strange and difficult year. I know tons of people in the wedding world that lost so many weddings and it was just horrible. I was relatively lucky in that I only lost one wedding and had two moved. Brooke and Russell’s wedding was one of the ones that ended up changing.  […]

It’s interesting to think that all of this traveling started with a trip to Kansas City and Dakota and Zach’s engagement photos. If I hadn’t had a great time, I might […]
