This day started with Kaylee greeting us at the door of Marlene’s Event Barn, lots of hugs and “the day is finally here!”. It seems like we were just eating ice cream at their engagement session, (one of my all time favorites and not just because it involved ice cream!) and now here we are. […]

To say this season has been ‘busy but beautiful’ would be pretty accurate! I had two rounds of mini sessions this fall & it was wonderful. Some families I’ve photographed before and they’re returning with new little members in tow, and others are brand new faces that I loved meeting! One thing is for sure, […]

The definition of a dreamy summer evening date night! No, seriously. I often tell my couples to think of their engagement session as a sort of date night. It’s a one time event that includes quality time together celebrating the excitement of getting married, a chance to dress up and a great reason to go out to dinner after!
(Or in this case, ice cream!) It was the best!

This engagement session perfectly captures that quintessential rustic vibe with a bright pop of fun that is Jake and Haley. Spring is one of my favorite times to photograph! It’s warming up and everything is vibrant and green. Another thing that’s my favorite to photograph… couples like this!! How cute are they? We ventured to […]
