Taylor+Devin are two of the kindest people I’ve ever met. Wes and I were SO lucky to be able to be a part of this couples wedding day. Taylor was so calm and laid back all day long, seriously I don’t think anything could have taken her out of her cool and collected mood. This was a day these two couldn’t wait to see and their anticipation had me equally excited to see the day finally come! Thank you Taylor+ Devin for letting us tag along all day for your wedding day. It was an honor to see the two of you promise forever in front of your friends and family.

I am SO excited to be working with Brandy+Daniel. Getting to know the two of them has been SO much fun, and Brandy’s son Jackson helps to make things even more cute and interesting! When Daniel decided he was going to ask Brandy to marry him he knew he wanted to incorporate Jackson in some way. Knowing there was NO way a kid his age would be able to keep a secret he also knew he had to be pretty sneaky in the way he went about it. Over breakfast one morning Daniel popped the question and a little while later Jackson was dropped off at the house. Daniel had thought about this and KNEW he had to get Brandy to hide so Jackson wouldn’t notice her ring. Daniel and Jackson had a one-on-one moment where Daniel told Jackson his intentions and Jackson said he was totally fine with it. The three were able to celebrate the good news together and Jackson will always know he had a part in getting these two together, forever.
LIndsey+Will’s love for one another stretches for miles. In the earliest days of their long distance romance Lindsey was content just to hear Will’s voice on the other end of the line. It didn’t matter what he was saying, what sports team he was talking about, or what crazy thing had happened at work that day, It all sounded like the most wonderful love story being read to her from wherever his job would take him.
This love began as appreciation. One would say to the other ” I appreciate you” as a sign of love and adoration. A small gift that they gave to each other over and over that eventually grew into “I love you”. It’s funny how that word- “love” encompasses so many other words. Appreciation may have transitioned to LOVE but it’s still included in there for these two. The look of love and appreciation that swept across Lindsey’s face, as she received her last gift as Will’s fiance, spoke volumes to that fact. She appreciated the time he had taken to pick out the most beautiful necklace for his soon to be wife, and she loved that he had done it all with her on his mind and in his heart. Now as they start a new journey as husband and wife, in a new city and state we can know that their love and appreciation still stretches for miles.

I like to do these every once and a while as a reminder of the things we have to be thankful for. Cultivating a lifestyle of thankfulness is of the utmost importance to me and what better way to do that then look back over all those great things that happened that make me feel the absolute MOST THANKFUL in the moment. Here’s what we’ve been up to in the past 3 or so months.
Today I am so eager and excited to start sharing a little project we’ve been working hard on! Wes and I decided it was about time that we did some films individually to give you a closer look at the behind the scenes process for both photo and cinema. These videos are a look into our minds and hearts. See how we work, why we work, and all the stories that made us the storytellers we are today. What makes us tick, how we cultivate a creative energy, and who we are when we don’t have cameras in our hands. The first part of this series takes a look at How Wes approaches the song selection process for each and every one of the films we create and How I use my “hands on/diy” approach in every client experience.
