They shared their first look and Jennica turned to Michael and I and said “You know the first time we met, Brent told me that whoever got to marry me was going to be a lucky man because I was going to be a beautiful bride.” Little did Brent know that he would end up being that lucky guy years later!! He was right, Jennica was a stunning bride! Her BHLDN dress was so classic and timeless. As soon as I saw it I started thinking of all of the portraits I wanted to do!! Their day was perfect… even with the threat of rain!
We thought we were going to be dealing with an afternoon thunderstorm but it never came! Because of the clouds we had soft light and Shadow Creek provided a beautiful backdrop!! Baby cows for days!! This new venue blew us away and they treated us so well! We felt like we had known them for years! The property is gorgeous and the bridal suite is so photography-friendly. I can’t wait for you to see these getting-ready portraits! It’s amazing how well neutral dresses and gray walls photograph! I was in heaven!
Brent and Jennica were surrounded by 108 of their closest friends and family as they promised to love one another and choose one another forever. My favorite part of the day was when Brent’s sweet dad toasted the newlyweds and told Jennica that she reminded him of his wife who is no longer with us. He also told Jennica that the world will try to take away her sweet spirit and she can’t ever lose that part of her. Through tears he shared that Jennica had brought so much joy into his life and that he is thankful to now have a daughter. There was something so genuine about his words and I melted. I love this job of mine. It’s such an honor to celebrate and capture moments like this!
Enjoy some of my favorites that tell the story of their day!!! Congratulations Jennica and Brent!!
Remember these two?! Love them!

It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
Maybe it’s just me…. but I feel like this fall is FLYING by! It seems like just the other day that I was sharing about three more KJ Students who are doing amazing things in their businesses! Well, this weeks marks the beginning of November and I have three amazing students to introduce you too!!!
