MAKING IT THROUGH LIFE WITH A LITTLE BIT OF AND A LOT OF
Not too long ago, we were getting ready to go out to the grocery store and Randy was sitting on the bed. He was in the middle of putting his shoes on, and I was in the bathroom putting my face on, and he quietly says, “why don’t you just be honest and say where you really want to go?”
And without hesitating, I turned to him and started to cry and said, “I want to go home.”
big news: We are moving home to colorado!
November is the month to celebrate thankfulness, and boy oh boy are we thankful for our partnership with The Knot. Next week is Thanksgiving, and the official kick off to what Randy + I call Booking Season (cue the “it’s the most wonderful time of year” song). From Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day, we book more weddings in this 3 month stretch than any other part of the year; in fact, I’d say about half our bookings for any given year originates communication with us during booking season.
I’ve seen countless posts in various photography groups that I’m part of asking if The Knot is “worth it” and I can, unequivocally say … it is … for us.

Weddings are special days, but they can often be expensive in their extravagance, not to mention wasteful. Lots of the materials that go into staging a ceremony can wind up in the landfill, and this does not sit well with couples concerned with preserving the environment and conserving resources. Outside of eloping or heading to the courthouse, there are lots of options to split the difference, allowing you to have a modest-sized, meaningful ceremony (or adventure) that leaves a minimal carbon footprint.

Oh Darling, let's always be
A few weeks ago, Randy and I spent some time with Latarsha Bradwell, the creative planner at The Designery Event. She put together an amazing brunch for fellow creatives at Barrique Kitchen and Wine Bar in the St John’s area of Jacksonville, Florida. She invited us to come along to document the fun morning!

One of my favorite weddings was Josh and Londee's mountain wedding in Estes Park, Colorado.
I loved this family session at Christ Church on St Simon's Island here in Georgia!
I loved this before-the-wedding bridal boudoir session done at home!
I'm normally all about sunsets, but this sunrise engagement session at Garden of the Gods in Colorado absolutely stole my heart!
Love isn't about the time you spend together.
It's about the memories you create.
