Emily and Bob Angus Barn Film Wedding

Emily and Bob Angus Barn Film Wedding
If you know Emily and Bob, you know that they love their people. It is so evident in the way that they live their life and their wedding day was no different. It was important to them, to spend as much time with their friends and family who had come from many miles away or just a couple to celebration their union. As their photographer, I loved watching them interact [...]

Days one, two, and three of the Trouvaille Workshop are incredible and full.

I don't care how long you are in business, you can always learn more, and that's exactly what[...]

Nash Barger 1 Year Film Session
Guys I was so sad when this session ended! I've had the privilege of following this family through more than the first year of this little dude's life, and it's been so sweet. It started with Jason and Jessica's maternity session, and then I met Nash at his newborn session. At 6 months, he shocked me with his tank-like demeanor, and he smiled big and ate non-sto[...]

Kathryn and Ryan met on the World Race, and I knew from the start they were adventurers. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to photograph a couple who is so relaxed and so adventuresome... at the same time. I know that might sound strange, but it's true! They love the outdoors, they love hiking, they explored Alaska on their honeymoon, he proposed in Thailand, and[...]

I'll take pictures of y'all any time! Film Processing: Indie Film Lab [...]

Can this family get any cuter? I absolutely loved working with the Hilliards and their sweet little girl. Her joy was contagious, and you'll be able to literally feel her joy when you look at these images! She's spunky and full of life, and I adore her.
