such a sweet time of life...
It really is such a sweet time of life...to be engaged! The best news is that it keeps getting better and better!
And now you’re planning your wedding - your day to celebrate and get lost in the joy and beauty of love, family, and friends. I hope you enjoy every step of the planning, every day of your anticipation-filled engagement, and every minute of your wedding day. Stop and smell the roses as often as you can. Deal?
That stop and smell the roses part is where I come in. Ask every single married person in the world, and they’ll tell you the same thing. Your wedding day rushes by in a flash, and you hardly remember all the moments that occur. I know that seems crazy, but it’s true. Tell me, do you remember everything your fiancé said when he proposed? Most do not. It’s just a common thing that happens when really amazing, emotional things are happening. You will have the time of your life. It will be the sweetest day yet. But there will be many precious moments that go by that you will want to stop and enjoy for much longer than what life allows. Don’t you just love photos for that reason?
After your wedding day, you will sit down with your husband or wife and thoughtfully take in the beauty of what just happened - photo by photo, moment by moment. And you know what? You’ll do that again and again - on dates, on challenging days and easy ones, with your kids, friends, and grandkids. All this talk makes me want to make a fire in the fireplace, and cozy up with our wedding album!
My husband, Rob, and I have been married for 14 years and have 4 amazing children. We love people and going deep to really get to know them. We also love art and design, and photography is a huge expression of that for us.
We have been photographing weddings since 2007. My favorite part of weddings is witnessing how each couple gets uniquely loved and supported by their family and friends. That might seem like a weird favorite, but I love it. Rob’s favorite part is photographing the bride and groom alone. He loves capturing their interaction when no one else is looking. We also love putting the wedding album together after the big day. It’s so fun to witness the photos tell the story of a couple and the intricacies of their wedding day.
Enough about us! We can’t wait to meet you and hear about your dreams for your wedding day.
