Some people come into your life unexpectedly and you know from the moment that you meet them this person has marked you and they will be in your life forever. Katie is one of these people. I don’t even know where to begin to tell you how much I love her. In two quick years (I cannot even believe it’s only been two) she has pushed me, loved me, listened to me, and (being the insanely creative person that she is) has made more things for me than I can ever possibly thank her for. I hope these images are a start in my own way to show you how much I cherish our friendship and love you immensely. From the moment that Brandon came in your life (oh I was there the moment they met!) to now I have watched you grow as a woman, a creative, a wife, a mother, and an amazing friend. I have loved being there from the beginning, seeing the love that Brandon has for you, and knowing that you two are in amazing hands having each other. I cannot wait to watch the rest of the journey…and be there to photograph it (until I get too old). To Brandon: You are a good man, a great husband, and an amazing father. Thank you for including me on all the events that have happened this past year. You love her so much and know that it is always evident. I’m so proud of you and so honored you both allowed me to be apart of this amazing day. From the bottom of my heart….thank you. I love you both. Here’s to the next fifty…
I know I have been away from my blog for quite some time but I promise it’s not because I haven’t wanted to be here! We are working on some amazing new things around here and blogging hasn’t been “available” or where I could while we get those new things ready! I promise to be back for a few weeks to show you what I have been doing this wedding season (and just new season of life!) and then I’ll probably go quiet again for a few weeks while we get the blog prepared for a new name (I did get married this year after all!) and some other new lovely things. I’m excited. I cannot wait for all my clients, my friends, my family (Hi Mom.) to see everything around here change. I’m ready for it! Until then…in no particular order I’m going to take some time to show you what has been going on in my world while I have been away! It’s alot…a WHOLE lot!
Starting with Amanda and Ryan’s wedding! I love these two! Your wedding was beautiful, spiritual, and so intimate. I enjoyed the two of you and your families so, so much and I am so glad you chose me to be there with you. Thank you to the amazing Debbie at Browne Photography for shooting with me! A couple of these are hers!

Thank you Katie and Jess for allowing Matthew and I to be apart of one of the most fantastic parties we have ever been to! And a HUGE thank you to Ferriday McClatchy of Ferriday McClatchy Events for creating this gorgeous event and making my life a breeze by being the most organized planner on the planet! She is amazing! And another huge thank you to the band The SoulSations. You guys were by far the best wedding band I have ever had the pleasure of working with!
Katie chose to do a first look with Jess and all her portraits at Rowan Oak, the late William Faulkner’s family home in Mississippi.
