Its' Family Photo Season

Ah, yes, Fall.  Time to put on your Sunday best and drive out to some remote location with a lady wearing so so much camera equipment.  Thanks to my fall photo families for patiently hiking windy trails to find that perfect light.  It's been a blast!  

Jenna + Nathan

I mean, how cute are these two?  I love weddings, but I especially love filming weddings when the groom is head-over-heels smitten with his bride.  Nathan just could not get enough of Jenna, and it was adorable!!! Loved this wedding, loved this video (great editing by my groom), and loved the experience.  We thought the unpredictable Oklahoma weather was going to prevent us from taking outdoor photos, but the skies cleared up for just enough time to get it done!

Thank you Jenna and Nathan for trusting us to capture your special memories, we loved being a part of your wedding day! I hope you cherish your wedding video for years to come!

Elie + Aaron

We have loved getting to know Elie and Aaron.  It seems like only yesterday I received a call asking if we could film a proposal.  It was amazing to be a 'fly on the wall' of sorts for their proposal and first moments together as an engaged couple.  We were then so honored when they asked us to film their wedding.

The day was smoothing sailing.  I mean, what would you expect from a professional wedding planner.  Elie works for The Yes Girls, a professional wedding and proposal planning team.  When you have some time, take a look at their website and watch all the creative ways men have proposed to their future wives.  

Elie and Aaron, thank you again!  We loved working with you and getting to meet your family and friends.  You are blessed with wonderful people in your lives, and we wish you a long and happy marriage.

Seize the day!

Hello, World! The Birth of Luke Samuel

Seriously, this is one of the coolest things I get to do with my job as a 'record keeper.'  I love to document the moment a mother holds her baby in her arms for the first time.  The joy.  The relief.  So surreal.  Sorry photographers, but photos just won't do it justice.  

I loved Danielle since our very first meeting, where we discussed the many aspects of birth and motherhood over tea!  And, let me tell you, this woman is STRONG.  She planned for a natural birth and never once did she falter or say "I can't."   As anyone who has been in labor knows, births don't always go as planned, but Danielle faced every moment with courage, conviction, and grace.  

Thank you so much for trusting me to capture such an important moment.  It was an honor.

Seize the 'good stuff,'
