The thing is, after a workshop, we submit our styled shoots and then we start planning the next one! I’m so bad at remembering to share the actual SHOOT with everyone!! This is one styled shoot you do NOT want to miss!! It’s glamorous and beautiful but this was a shoot that a must BIGGER surprise in store for everyone! I knew about this. I had some warning!! After we did some posing and detail shots, it was time!
Samantha (our gorgeous model) had no idea this was happening. I told them that they could just interact on their own for a few minutes and I backed away. I squatted down and got in position because I knew what was about to go down! Within a matter of minutes, Samantha was being asked the most exciting question of her life!!!! Of course she said “YES” and you should have heard the SQUEALS! These workshop girls were just beside themselves with excitement! It’s not everyday that you get to photograph a real proposal during a workshop!!!! What a dream!!
It was such an honor to have a part in this special day in their lives! I am SO excited to share this with you! And a HUGE thanks to Inspired By This for featuring this a few months back!
So gorgeous! It’s hard to believe this is our driveway!

This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
