Did you know we offer video + photo services** for you big day?!? Well, neither did we! That is before these two. We had been talking about doing this for some time, but we had to find the right couple to take the leap. A big thank you goes out to Maredith and Guy for trusting us when we said we could do a good job. They took us at our word--not an easy task when it comes to your wedding.
But, I am so glad they did because we had the BEST BEST BEST time! Maredith and Guy, you have very fun, kind, welcoming, and generous friends/family. I couldn't help but smile as I looked through all these images today. There's just so much love there.
Best of luck to you two in all you do! I know you will have a long happy marriage filled with many blessings and much good fortune. Part 2 (video) to come soon. Stay tuned!
** We are only able to accept 3 video + photo clients a year-first come basis. But we are HAPPY to recommend our favorite photographers to you!
Ah summer.... As the wife of a teacher with summers off, I must say it is a magical time when you catch up and wipe stuff off the to do list as your husband cooks dinner and does laundry. Yes, a magical time indeed.
I thought I would use my free time, as Jared is currently tinkering in our darkroom (previously known solely as the laundry room) to post some of my favorite shots from the last birth I filmed. I always snap a few pics too. I mean, why not! I'm there. I have a camera. And, I love to do it.
Thank you again to the Jacksons for trusting me to be a part of the birth of their first born! Congrats! Such a beautiful family, inside and out.
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!

We've been so slammed the last few months, I forgot to post some of the images from Danielle's birth. There is just something so special about that moment you become a parent and hold your baby for the first time. I don't think I will ever get over it. Gives me goosebumps every time I capture it.
Happy New Year! 2015 was a banner year for us, and we are so excited for the nine couples who have already booked for our 2016 season. We are even headed to Dallas this spring. As we wrap up the 2015 films, I thought I would post this one. I LOVE the story of how these two met! And how cute is their puppy?!?!
I love that in our business you never know what is around the corner. We have some brides book almost two years in advance, and then, other times, you have someone call you only a handful of days before their 'big day.' This was one of those events. Some people decide last minute they want a wedding videographer, and...wow, are we glad these two did!
This was a wedding for the books! Every little detail of the day was beautifully designed and every word, song, and message of their ceremony was perfectly crafted. Due to the short time between booking and the actual wedding, we did not meet the couple before their wedding day, but, as soon as we arrived, we felt 'right at home' with this crew. Julie and Carla, it is undeniably apparent you are surrounded by an amazing group of family and friends. It was truly an honor to be a fly on the wall (with cameras, of course) for your special day.
Seize the 'good stuff,'
