Karlie + Jordan | Lapham Peak Engagement

Karlie and Jordan met through her best friend, who also happens to be Jordan’s cousin. I’m always intrigued by how people meet nowadays. The thought of dating seems so daunting with the Internet and all. It has to be a HUGE relief when you find a guy who is already known by someone you trust because they can totally vouch for his character!

Karlie said Jordan keeps her leveled and he’s always calm and sweet. Even when he’s mad he has a smile on his face!

Jordan said Karlie is his best friend. She is the type-A planner who is always two steps ahead of the game. (I can totally relate, being type-A myself!) These two are so relaxed and sweet and they trusted me with whatever I asked. A former bride and groom sent these two my way (hey Jenna and Doug!) and I couldn’t be more grateful to spend their wedding day with them at the new venue, Fete (pronounced FATE), in Wales this November!

Ellie and Justin | Shell Beach, California Styled Couples Session

A couple of posts ago, I talked about my time at the Cultivate workshop in California and how much fun I had together with the other photographers! We had sessions in the redwoods and on the coast, and every single REAL LIFE couple we photographed was up for anything and honestly such a joy to be around. Ellie and Justin were no exception. They’re down-to-earth and sweet and they just got married in Morocco THIS WEEK!!! Jordan Voth, the legend, captured it all and I can’t wait to see more from their epic day! She was seriously STUNNING.

Congratulations to Ellie and Justin for getting married the way they wanted! I couldn’t be happier for them!

These photos were from our time together on the coast last month!

Redwoods Couples Session | Northern California

We did three total sessions in the Redwoods for Cultivate Workshop (the styled elopement was TOO GOOD) and here are the other two lovely couples we were so fortunate to work with that evening!

Laura and Shane are engaged to be married and SO IN LOVE. I loved how playful they were in front of the camera and how friendly they were with us too! They were up for ANYTHING and Laura’s smile is seriously infectious!!!

Lastly, we have Jon + Tayren. What I really loved about these two was their kindness and tenderness for one another. They are fostering the sweetest baby boy and decided to bring him to the shoot because they said their time together might be limited and they want him to experience everything they do. Their hearts!!! Jon was so friendly and really engaged with all of us, asking inquiring questions to get to know their photographers. I loved watching this sweet married couple together. Also, totally down for whatever we asked. The dream team.

A Styled Redwoods Elopement | Northern California

My last post talked all about my experience at Autocamp at the Cultivate workshop! We did some styled shoots over the three days we were there and I was so excited to blog them all! These people are REAL LIFE couples who are as madly in love as these photos portray. They’re real people with a real story and I loved meeting all of them.

On the first night, we snuck into the redwoods to snap a few photos of this beautiful married couple and I couldn’t get enough! That dress, those florals, and her hair. I mean, seriously. I only DREAM of thick, gorgeous hair like hers!!

Resurrecting the Blog

Resurrecting the Blog

I stepped away from blogging the last couple years because it was the most overwhelming feeling to me and I just never really knew where to start. I also questioned if people even read these anymore?! What I DO know is that it’s a great way to share my work and have my voice be heard in a spot other than a social media platform.

So here I am, resurrecting my blog on Good Friday. (Kind of fitting for this weekend, right?)

A little bit about me: I’m a born again believer who loves the Lord and is just trying to do my best every day to seek Him and grow in Him. I don’t have it all figured out, there is no perfect method to serving Him. It’s a daily dying-to-self process where He is first and everything else comes after. I fail plenty by letting life get in the way of my time with the Him, but I’m thankful His mercies are new each day!

My husband and I met in youth group back in 2001 and the rest is history. We married in 2005 (I was 20, he was 22), and we had two beautiful daughters not long after. Our oldest will be 12 in a few weeks and our youngest is 7. PARENTING IS HARD. Like, really hard. Our kids are sweet, kind, respectful, and they love Jesus. We are SO thankful and blessed!! But there’s still time to screw them up, and letting go as they get older scares the crap out of me.

I love being with people!! I feed off of others’ energy and get LIFE from them. But if you spent one day in my head, I think you might question your friendship with me. I overthink everything and my OCD tendencies are sometimes crippling. But hey, you can always count on me for a few pumps of natural sanitizing spray!

To those who have followed my journey since day one (July 21, 2012), thank you for your undying support. And for my newest followers, I hope you enjoy getting to know me and my clients! My goal here is to share my heart with you about life, this sweet business of mine, and of course my client’s love stories too!
