Back in the winter when I took a poll about what everyone would love to see more of on the blog, a ton of people wanted to hear from Michael more!! Don’t worry, I’m not offended. He’s a cool guy:) And he has a lot to share too!! Michael has been second shooting with me for years and years. What most people don’t realize is that he has been shooting with me since BEFORE we joined forces in 2013! Michael helped me all the way through college and that really helped us transition into being a husband/wife team very easily.

I absolutely LOVE it when I walk into a getting ready room and the bridesmaids are so friendly and welcoming. It makes the whole rest of the day go so smoothly!!
