5 Things You Didn't Know About Him!

  • Bokeh The Bichpoo

sweet boy…. He has brought so much joy into our lives. When we first got him, we had so many people telling us how we should house train him and what groomer we should use and how often to feed him. So many different opinions! I feel like getting Bokeh was a great way to experience a small example of what it’s going to be like having a child one day.

Engagement Guestbooks! Design, Order, Print!

She trusted us completely and that’s PRICELESS for a wedding photographer to hear. I kept telling her, “Courtney, girl you are a dream bride!!” and it was so true. Between her love for southern details and her gorgeous smile, I was heaven!
