I can’t even begin to explain how much I’ve missed weddings during this pandemic, and I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect couple to spend my “first” full wedding day with!

A couple of days ago, I shared my best of 2019 portraits, and I couldn’t wait to go through all of last year’s weddings to do the same!! This post was so much fun for me to pull together, and something about seeing all these photos in one place has me incredibly excited to jump […]

I’m so excited to share this wedding today!! Sara is my husband’s cousin (would that be my cousin-in-law?) so this was the first time I got to shoot a wedding and actually know half the people there! Sara and Jacob only got engaged a couple of months before their big day, and I gotta say, […]

Amy’s favorite holiday is Halloween, so it’s only fitting that this blog goes live today! This wedding was so much fun for me to be a part of, complete with kilts, bagpipes, and Irish dancers. One of the best things about this job is getting to meet wonderful people and experience the things that are […]
