Welcome to the blog, where I get to share all the beautiful love stories I document!  This is where each couple gets to shine.  I also occasionally share wedding tips, and just stuff from my personal life as a wife and mom!  Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully: Or if thou thinkest I am too quickly won, I'll frown, and be perverse, and say thee nay, so thou wilt woo: but else, not for the world. In truth, fair Montague, I am too fond; And therefore thou mayst think my 'haviour light: But trust me, gentleman, I'll prove more true than those that have more cunning to be strange.

I truly do NOT have words for my love for this couple.  I’m even more stumped when it comes to talking about the love they have for each other.   The way they light each other up…their excitement about spending their lives together and starting this new chapter was PALPABLE.  These two are the epitome of the phrase “better together.”  They are amazing separately, but magic happens when they’re in the same room.  I had a REALLY hard time choosing my favorites from this day to share with you, and have been cheesing the past hour re-living the emotions of the day that I got to witness behind my camera.  So many smiles, so many happy tears.   Not to mention weather perfection, and Abby planned every detail of this day to flow together like a dream.  This day was truly one that will go down in the books.  Abby accepted Tanner’s final rose (me and Abby are both crazy Bachelor fans so I had to…), and their love story is every bit as much of a fairytale as the show.  It is something truly remarkable, and I bet you’ll be able to feel it through these photos!!! Abby & Tanner, you are BEYOND LOVELY and I’m so honored to not only have been your photographer, but to witness your love story and get to know you through this process.
