Olivia and Marissa, a true love story. These two beautiful ladies have been friends since the 6th grade! 14 years of laughter, tears and joyful moments.

What a wedding!!! Not very many people I know can say they celebrated their wedding for 5 days, with 40 of their closest family and friends, in beautiful Mexico. Natalie and George were married in Playa del Carmen, right on the Gulf of Mexico near Cancun. The days were filled with walks to the beach, […]

They really made it easy to provide them with beautiful images they can treasure for a lifetime. I can’t wait to celebrate with Matt and Ashley when they return home […]

When I met with Kelly more than a year ago to talk about her wedding I knew immediately we were going to be a good fit. We hit it off right away. We talked about her ideas, her beautiful daughter and her hard-working fiance (now husband). Her eyes were wide with excitement and I couldn’t […]
