Their love story is still one of my favorites I’ve ever heard. The hand of God was so evident & all over their bizarre meeting while on mission in Haiti, on this entire day, and will continue to be all of their years to come! We love you guys! Happy first Anniversary! ☺️💖 •

Sooo many happy, summer vibes with this session! ✨📖
When was the last time you just posted up with a good book or walked barefoot in the grass? •
These two and their love for just spending time together doing the “mundane” (reading, writing, and painting) totally had us all inspired to just enjoy a sweet summer night together outside! 🌱

I’m ready to go back to the UK! 🇬🇧🐑 We’ve been so blessed to travel to a lot of different countries, especially over the past few years, but I have absolutely fallen in love with the UK and would have to say it holds #1 in my heart so far! •
The cozy countryside drives, countless cottages, castles, sheep & horses, tea & scones, and getting into conversations with the kindest people everywhere we go — there’s just nothing like it, in my opinion! ☺️ •
What’s your favorite country/culture you’ve experienced?

How we feel about being back in beautiful Franklin, TN again for this weekend’s wedding: the biggest smiles and all the fist bumps! We just adore this historic town!
Photo from last year at @trinityviewfarm with amazing @hthreeevents! ✨

Frolicking through Estes Park & around Colorado for a couple of engagement sessions we had last year was one of our favorite little 2018 excursions! It looked like a painting from every vantage point! 🖼🤩 •
We’ve recently been researching National Parks & other US scenic options for one of our 2019 client engagement sessions, and now our travel list has easily grown by 10+ locations in just one week! 🙈🤣 A lot of you mentioned some great options to look into on my story, but if you want to drop your favorite Midwest scenic locations (or hidden gems) drop them below! 🏔👇🏼

Happy 4th of July!! 🎆
Let’s talk about the good ol’ red, white, &... b l u e suits?👏🏻😉🇺🇸 •
I remember Maddie asking if I thought the baby blue suit against the navy groomsman suits would look okay, seems like an obvious yes, right? 🤷🏽‍♀️ •
Carson’s gift to his groomsmen were these super fun custom suits by the fab @jay__amin! Each with their own jacket liner that reminded him of a memory they had together, or the personality of the groomsman wearing it! While his jacket had a note from his bride, an element mimicking their matching tattoos & a favorite verse! 👏🏻🤩 Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and let the grooms do something to standout! ❤️

Sheww, lots of pretty bling in front of our lenses this past week! 👏🏻✨💍 •
I couldn’t seem to get out of bed/off the couch yesterday (which is weird for me) then I realized that in the past 6 days we had photographed 2 weddings in 2 different countries, a rehearsal dinner, 2 engagement sessions, and a newborn session — and then it made more sense...Haha •
I do not typically run at that speed anymore! It’s simply not healthy y’all, your body needs real rest — every week! If you’re feeling that mid-season burnout creeping in then I’m pretty confident I could guess why! 😉 I know it’s busy season, but especially for those of us who work from home, if you haven’t slowed down in a week’s time, would you consider taking tomorrow off from your “regularly scheduled hustle” for the holiday & simply just enjoy, unplug, and fuel your soul with some face-to-face interactions? 🇺🇸 It may be the most un-American thing you’ll do all day! 😉🤣
