This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
The only difference is that I asked Brandon and Meghan to stand in rows of CORN instead of climbing into a soybean field! This day was beautiful. The weather was incredible! It felt better to be outside than inside! It was almost as if we had sneak peek into fall just for one day with 70 degree temps, zero humidity and a slight breeze! It was the perfect day for Brandon and Meghan to start their new life together!
I’ve known Meghan her entire life. We grew up in the same small town and went to the same country church where my Dad has been the pastor for over 30 years. It felt like this wedding day was a giant reunion…. only with a lot more tiny kiddos running around! My Dad officiated the ceremony, we photographed the day, friends provided food, the venue is owned by a family friend and all of our families were in attendance…. including all of our kids! Micah, Evy, Harper and Graham haven’t been at a wedding that we have photographed in some time and I have to say, I had to work hard not to be too distracted. They looked so precious in their wedding attire!!!
Speaking of wedding attire, Meghan looked beautiful. She’s always been gorgeous but she was glowing on her wedding day and I loved photographing the two of them! Not only are they photogenic, but I shot their entire wedding day with a brand new camera body and I quickly fell in love with it! From their willow tree portraits to the corn field, it didn’t disappoint and I can’t wait to show you my favorites!
Meghan and Brandon, we’re so happy for you guys. Brandon, I know we haven’t known you since you were a baby but we do know the Beasley’s and you’re one lucky guy. You have married into one special family. We’re so happy for you both and it was an honor to be your photographers!!!!

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!!!
