I think it's true that the energy we put out into the world comes back to us. Sometimes that's in the form of life events. Sometimes that's in the form of relationships. If you're really lucky, it's both. When I first met Elizabeth and Dan, I could sense how chill and laid back they were, which totally spoke to me. Once we started shooting their engagement session the other night, I watched another layer peel back and saw just how much joy and laughter they share, together. I aim to bring that to all of my sessions, but these two brought it in spades so I just sat back and enjoyed the love and happiness that was unfolding!…Read more
One thing I love about being a photographer is getting to meet so many new people. As easily as my profession connects me with new people, it also gives me an opportunity to reconnect with people I haven't talked to in a long time. With Marcus and Anthony, I get both of these connections. I've known Marcus since high school (I definitely won't say how many years ago THAT was) but met Anthony for the first time at our consultation. Of course it was nice to catch up with Marcus, but it also made me so happy that he found Anthony because they compliment each other so well!...Read more
When I first met Emily and Michael, I couldn't help but notice how bright and bubbly they were as a couple. Once we started chatting about their relationship, hobbies and wedding plans, I was so wildly excited! Their interests and style are totally my vibe and I was immediately SO grateful that they found me! I knew this adventure of wedding festivities was going to be fun.
So when we initially talked about their Engagement Session, Emily had a few ideas for the type of location and vibe she wanted to go for - and guys, that's my favorite! You know why? Because it makes the e-sesh so much more personal for the couple. If we can work together to create a unique shoot, I'm pumped! One thing to note about Emily and Michael is that they love trying new foods and cooking together. So Emily suggested a session at their house, where they baked some cookies and just chilled with some coffee. As soon as she told me that, I was completely on board. So that's what we planned on a sunny, warm Saturday morning. We chatted, I photographed while they baked some yummy chocolate chip cookies and just hung out in their gorgeous home....Read more
