A Sweet + Fun Engagement Session {Jenna + David}

This entire session was full of laughs, jokes and so much fun! These 2 are full of life and love for one another.  It is crazy to think they have known each other since they were very young….David remembers Jenna being about 4 years old!  Is this not the cutest?!  Through the session, they were incredibly laid back and just wanting to enjoy every moment.  We popped Champagne and glitter pops.  One was great and one was a bit of a fail…but it was so much fun 😉  I love a lifestyle engagement session that shows the love a couple shares through being themselves.  I adored this session and these two!  Can’t wait to capture their wedding day this November!

A lifestyle family session in the creek {Addilynn Turns 4}

This family I truly adore…I have photographed Addilynn since she was born and each year I get to see her, my heart loves her more and more.  She is so much fun and so full of personality.  She is sweet and loving.  Eric + Jen have raised an absolutely perfect little girl.  This session has been my favorite!  What better way to celebrate a birthday?? Swimming in a creek and having a blast sounds pretty perfect!  This lifestyle session was so much fun and I can’t wait to have my family photographed in a creek one day as well 😀

A Simple, Romantic Wedding Day full of Love {Alex + Ashley}

This day was perfect and these two were incredible.  I knew when I photographed Ashley + Alex at their engagement session, their wedding day would be full of laughter, love and candid moments.  They photograph so well together and their personalities shape one another so beautifully.  Their hearts are so sweet and the love they have for each other is beyond what you read about in books.  Alex is kind hearted with a gentle spirit.  He looks at Ashley with such commitment and holds her as if he is never letting go. Ashley is like a perfect bride–if there is such a thing– 😀  She is a natural beauty and one of the sweetest brides I have met.  Her laughter is contagious and her love for Alex shows in the way she smiles at him, holds his hand and and lays at his chest.  The day was effortless…..everything seemed to lay out so well.  The ceremony was lit with candlelight and the reception was more intimate with mingling and a small dinner.  Alex + Ashley know the meaning of commitment and what marriage means.  They spent time thanking their guests and giving their time to show how much each person means to them.  I adore these two and their huge hearts.  Congratulations and I wish you both all the happiness and so much love!

Thank you to those who helped in making this day possible:

Venue: The Washington Township Pavilion Center

Florals: JP Parker

Cake Artist: Heavenly Sweets

Videography: Toast Videography

Beautiful Proposal at Rick’s Boatyard {Madison + Danilo}

What a gorgeous evening full of surprises 😀

Danilo had it all put together and even had family there to surprise her!  They were headed to Rick’s for a work dinner for Danilo.  Surprise Surprise, things were about to change! Brandon hid in the car and I hid behind bushes…trying to get what photos we could before Madison had an idea of what was going on.  Once she figured it out….those images are my favorite 🙂  She is so adorable!  Her excitement beaming and Danilo’s nerves settling as he takes a knee and her left hand in his.  The love that pours out through a song played on the guitar and words from his heart as he asks if she will be his wife was simply perfect.

Brandon and I are always thankful for being able to photograph some of the most important days of someones life….and this was one of those times!

I am so excited to photograph their engagement session soon and their September wedding!

Congratulations you two 😀

Ana Lívia de Oliveira Sartori - This is simply adorable! It’s a dream come true!

First Newborn Session at The Studio…..{Meet Harrison}

First….THANK YOU to Damon + Taylor for making their trip to The Studio for Harrison’s newborn session 🙂 And even more of a thank you for allowing me to photograph all of you in a space that wasn’t quite finished! I think it worked perfectly and makes me even more excited to work in the finished space soon!

This little boy was an angel. Truly.  He was so incredibly alert the entire time until the very end. When most babies are alert they are moving around, maybe fussy…but this guy was a champ!  He stared at my camera and never took his eyes off of mom + dad when they held him. It was so beautiful watching the 3 of them together.  After photographing Damon + Taylor’s wedding day, this brought so much joy to my heart capturing this sweet moment with their first baby 😀

Enjoy every.single.moment……

The Studio will be opening soon and I can’t wait to share it with all of you!!  Continue checking Facebook for the grand opening!!
