What day of the week is it? Tuesday? No Wednesday. Right? How many people feel like this during the busiest time of the year? I am rounding out 2018 with my last few sessions. I have a birth session, two engagement sessions, a senior and two family sessions to photograph and then my year is complete. As I am feeling exhausted, I also keep feeling energized to get all the things I need done before I take off the last two weeks of December for Christmas and my sister’s wedding in Georgia. I’m excited to share all the beautiful and fun things I photographed this fall. Because let’s be real, I wasn’t the best at keeping up with social media all while shooting, editing, and blogging during the busiest time of the year. Lol it’s a goal of mine to get better at in 2019. But for now, I’m giving myself grace. Because hey, I thought about not posting tonight because it’s 9:30 PM, but I pushed through and made it happen. So I’m calling that a win. ☺️•

So I made them tell embarrassing stories of each other and I think it was the bestest, most amazing thing to happen! It set the hilarious and comfy mood for the rest of the session! —
These two freaking crack me up! ❤️❤️

Finishing this gorgeous bride and handsome grooms wedding! I remember we stepped outside of @nuevomodmex and she said “ I’d really like a veil shot” I asked her if there was anything specific she had in mind and she said she didn’t know. Then I said “here what about this” ::snap:: 📷🤗❤️ . #longveil .

pretty details with personal branding to match - yes please! they had the same monogrammed floral crest on their invitations, programs and everything else and it gives such a nice, cohesive look. also, I’m not sure what ‘crack bacon’ is (under appetizers), but yes please to that too.👌🏼
We had to get up super early to catch the sunrise and the early morning fog for this photoshoot. But it was so worth it!
Being on set with these talented people was so fun I didn't even notice all the sweat dripping down my back…until later 😂
I got to contribute a fabric calligraphy banner that could be used as a wedding backdrop and it really adds to the mood of a wedding. This shoot actually inspired my entire line of calligraphy banners I’ve been creating this past summer and fall!
It's such an honor for it to be featured on @ohtheheart today. Make sure you go see the beautiful gallery of photos in their profile link!

Dreamy fields of high grass! OH YEAH! I love this photo of Kelly and Andrew taken at the @valleyforgepark . These two were just so sweet with one another and their wedding is coming up in a few short months! I can’t wait for it because it’s in one of my most favorite locations #springtonmanor !!! 🌞⠀
Time sure does fly!⠀
How many days are left until you say I do?
Kristen it has been so special seeing behind the scenes while you planned and worked to make this day a reality. Since you met Jake I knew something was different. You had found someone who made you feel unconditionally loved, safe and willing to be silly. Each day hearing how you were just ready for your wedding day to finally be here so you could be Mrs. Elton. I am so incredibly happy for you and excited for your journey ahead 🥰
It’s an honor to be featured in the Spring/Summer edition of @modluxweddingsphl Alec and Greg’s summer wedding at Barclay Prime was the perfect beginning to the next chapter for two of the most genuinely sweet men we have ever met. Head over to your local bookshop to see us in print!
Got the flu shot for the first time in my life, two weeks later I have the worst head cold ever.... I’m sure they aren’t related but just sayin. 🤷🏼♀️ | In other news I’m super excited about new passion project, side hustle (maybe hustle isn’t the right word) venture with one of my besties-soulmates @megstratt Trying to get our duckies in a row so we can launch in the new year (there should be a nail biting emoji) Think working/stay at home mama meets daydreamer, building her empire kind of vibes 🙌🏻 #cantwait .

Baby it’s cold outside - Our friends Victoria and Peter at Winter Wonderfest ❄️ Peter runs the nonprofit as a labor of love and puts in some crazy long cold nights to ensure it’s flawless. And I only recently found out about their insane skating talents, I wore sneakers 🤦🏼♀️

Fun surprise arrived in my inbox today! Riley and Stefanie’s stunning winter wedding was featured in Glamour & Grace! You can see their wedding- and a glimpse of me in my happy place: behind an easel- at:
Link and I are watching a movie about WWII right now... I’ve avoided watching this movie since it came out because the young guy in it makes me think about how my PapaBob must have felt when he was in the war. —
Watching movies like this makes me really think about life. Our life is essentially one big blur, don’t you want it to be a bright happy blur?
Outside factors can cause heartache and pain... so why cause that for yourself?
