    Hey everybody!

    I've got some really sweet teasers from Krystal and Don's wedding at Big Cedar Top of the Rock. From her Tiffany's necklace given by her groom that morning, to their choreographed first dance, the entire day was so sweet! Have a walk through a few highlights from this Big Cedar wedding...


    This chapel is so unbelievable.

    Hey everybody!

    I'm back at it again! I've been able to work on some more of the images I photographed of Bonnie for her fashion blog, Bonniedoesitagain.com recently. This time, she wanted a little more edgy look (which I love) and so we shot a new way, out of our little comfort zone... AND I LOVE IT! Check out this shoot in her Selena Gomez graphic tee and leather shorts, and if you want to read her comments on killing people with kindness, head to her blog post!

  • 08/03/16--19:22: A Benfield Olympian!


  • Hey everybody!

    I'm so excited that Dominique is in Brazil right now representing her country with her super fast speed! She ran for the U of A and I got to know her pretty well over the past year, and y'all... she's the real deal.  She's a total sweetheart, gorgeous inside and out.  I wish her all the best during the games. How cool is it that we know an Olympian?!

  • 08/04/16--19:41: Lazy Man's Challenge


  • Hey everybody!

    I think getting and staying healthy is so important in life. I used to be quite a bit overweight and felt miserable all the time. I loved food, and I still love food, but I was able to lose weight and have a better lifestyle, and y'all... I LOVE the way I feel right now!

    My friend and photographer, Becker, has lost even more than me! He's down 90 pounds! He's figured out some great tricks that he is sharing over at "Lazy Man's Challenge." I see such a difference in him, and since he has a sweet little girl now, he needs all that energy and fitness he can get.

    If you're a groom of mine (or even a bride!) who is looking to tone up, trim down, or get healthy, click on his link below.



    Here’s Becker's before and after photo.He's down over 90 pounds to date, as so far participants of the LMC have lost over 4,000 pounds collectively.

    Hey everybody!

    I just spent the day driving to and from Ha Ha Tonka State Park in Missouri to photograph one of my all-time favorite people, Taffy! I'm going to share her senior portraits with you soon, but first... I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane to show you some highlights from our yearly sessions over the past 6 years - we've literally shot all over the country. I'm so thankful for Taffy and her parents. Her mom told me today that I was like family, and it just melted me!

    Hey everybody!
    I'm not gonna lie... I might be writing this blog post just so I can post this sunset silhouette engagement portrait I photographed in New York City.  Haha!  Just kidding! Meredith and Tommy are celebrating 5 years of marriage today and I wanted to give them a shout out.  As you can see, I'm all about anniversaries lately because I believe marriages are more important than weddings.  Boom.

    Happy anniversary T+M!

    Hey everybody!

    Their wedding day was anything but typical, and Liz would be the first to say that she wouldn't change a thing. With a forecast of heavy rain, and a morning that proved it true, we were thankful for clear skies during our portrait session! I was so thankful that I was able to capture some portraits of this cool couple. Here are my favorites:

    Hey everybody!

    When I was in high school, I heard a story about one of my female teachers who had recently lost her husband. I remember them telling me that she had never pumped her own gas into her car and, in fact, didn't know how.  I remember thinking how odd it was that she, at such a mature age, didn't know something so basic (something I had already been doing for a year or so). Of course, when she was younger they undoubtedly had full service stations where gas station employees pumped it for you.  But they haven't been around in decades.

    And then of course the obvious set in.  She had been taken care of selflessly by her husband. While my fellow classmates sort of gawked at her not knowing how to pump her own gas, my heart swelled up.  What an incredible man she must have been married to... he always made sure she was taken care of, and they never took trips apart from one another. Of course, while they were together, he always did the serving for her. That's such a beautiful sentiment that takes years upon years, decades upon decades of being consistent and serving to his bride.

    I'd love a love like that. I'd love to serve someone is such a way. Not to belittle or keep her from learning, but to know that she had someone on her team who is always ready to go to bat for her.

    Cheers!

    (and just because I don't wanna post a blog without an image, here's a sweet one... of a couple who recently celebrated an anniversary and I didn't get to congratulate them that day)

  • 08/16/16--18:31: What Does Time Measure?


  • Hey everybody!

    When I think about the relationships I've had in my life, my mind immediately goes to the length of time I've had them. My mom... we've had a relationship all my life, obviously. Ellie... this friend... that friend... that girlfriend, etc. Maybe it's my obsession with quantifying things... or maybe everyone does that. I'm not sure.

    Instead of that, maybe I start thinking about the depth of the relationship. Maybe I consider the closeness of me and the other; Maybe I consider the tightness of the bond. It's a very different approach.  How quickly did it take for me to love Ellie with my whole heart? Well, it was instant. How long did it take me to grow to love so-and-so? How close did so-and-so and I become?  I think that's the more relevant aspect of a relationship.

    Instead of "I've known him since I was in kindergarten" it should be "he/she knows every secret... or he/she knows everything about me."

    Hey everybody!

    I had the unique pleasure of attending one of my Los Angeles friend's first gig in California. Toni is from Germany, and I met her through Bonnie, who I've come to help with photoshoots recently. Toni has such a sweet voice, and is a great talent. I brought my fancy camera with me so I happened to shoot a video of her debut. :) Have a little 30 second peek!

  • 08/20/16--13:38: Happy and Thankful


  • Hey everybody!

    I've been writing a lot on here lately, haven't I? Like personal thoughts. I'm finding it therapeutic. :)

    A quick google search for happy quotes results in millions of uplifting thoughts and encouraging phrases. I'm thankful for google. I'm also thankful for loyal friends. I'm thankful for my girls. I'm thankful for a job that never feels like work. I'm thankful for parents who love me. I'm thankful for my mom who prays for me. I'm thankful that God shows favor on me. I'm thankful for things like Mickey Mouse, Chateaubriand, and Netflix. There is so much to be thankful for today.
