Bethany this, Bethany that. By the time I finally met Bethany at my best friend’s Zoom Bible study during quarantine, I felt like I already knew her. For the past two years since my bestie, Allison, had been going to ECC, their church, I’d heard Bethany’s name pop up time and time again. It appeared […]

Meet Jordan and Dylan! We got to meet them last week for the engagement photos before we shoot their wedding in a couple of weeks (it’s coming up so fast, y’all!) and had a great time! This sweet couple has been together for six (!!!) years and we’re so excited they’re getting married this year […]

This year is the first year it has been my privilege to take Lewis family pictures – my family’s pictures! I still think it’s pretty cool to have 2 families now, and to have added a nephew, brother-in-law and THREE sisters! Growing up, I always wanted sisters. Still can’t believe I got three. πŸ™‚ Katie, […]

Meet Brenna and Alex! After I moved here to the St. Louis, I reached out in my AJ community (Amy and Jordan are my photography teachers πŸ™‚ ) to see if there were any students in the area. And there were! And I’m so glad I did, because I got to meet Brenna. Brenna and […]

I literally have no words for our wedding day. I could write about anyone else’s wedding day, but mine? Nearly impossible. πŸ™‚ However, I’ll try. Andrew and I – after being engaged for 6 months – finally got married at my parents’ home in Asheville, North Carolina. (Read our relationship story here!) It wasn’t as […]

JADE AND CORY ARE GETTING MARRIED! January wouldn’t have been my first choice for an engagement shoot, but they needed pictures for their save-the-dates for their WEDDING in OCTOBER! So we decided on Max Patch – a bald mountain on the TN border, about an hour north of Asheville. Max Patch is supposed to 1) […]

I literally cannot believe it is time for this post already! I’m not sure if I want 2019 to be over yet. This has been the best year I’ve ever had since starting my business in 2016 and God has blessed it beyond what I thought was possible! Back when 2019 was just beginning, I […]

Running your own business is a serious thing. However, I’m a firm believer in not taking yourself too seriously. One of my favorite things is looking at all the behind-the-scenes shots I have a t the end of the year. Sometimes I manage to be really awkward! If you think life as a photographer is […]

This December was the last family vacation with just the four of us. I can’t believe it! Thinking about that is so strange…but so wonderful that next year we’ll be adding Andrew. Still, definitely something to process. We’ve not had our family pictures done in well over a year, and so with our last family […]

Oh my goodness, I am so excited to finally share this post (and these pictures)! Beware – it’s going to be very long. πŸ˜€  Most of you had no idea I was in a relationship, which was my intent – I was planning to surprise everyone if I got engaged! I am very, VERY happy […]
