This day was truly a breath of fresh air. Sydney and JR had to move their origional wedding date, but that didn’t stop them from having such a perfect day. They were blessed with gorgeous weather, and were surrounded by friends and family. The daddy daughter first look had us all in tears. Funny thing […]

And this session was very special becuase it was the engagement session for my friend Amanda. We went to college together, and she is part of all of my favorite […]
Krista and CJ are the kind of people that you don’t have to be around long to feel like you have known them forever. They are easygoing and up for anything. They told me when we first met each other that they met in life at the perfect time. I feel like that is the […]
