FEATURED WORK

It is always so humbling and such a great honor to have my work featured by different blogs and publications. I went full time into the wedding photography business last year and it’s been such a great encouragement to see some of my sessions published online as well as in print. I’ll have to admit that nothing compares with flipping through the pages of a magazine and seeing my images beautifully displayed on a full spread.

All of this would not be possible without the support of my beautiful couples. They are all so dear to me and I love each and every one of them so much! I am always excited to share with them the great news of having their engagements and/or weddings, featured and their reactions are always priceless! They feel like celebrities, and they truly deserve it. I seriously get to work with the most wonderful couples around and their love is simply contagious. I could not imagine doing anything else for a living!

Here are some of the 2014 sessions that have been featured on different blogs: read more…

THE IMPORTANCE OF WHERE YOU PUT ON YOUR WEDDING DRESS

THE IMPORTANCE OF WHERE YOU PUT ON YOUR WEDDING DRESS

To the new bride-to-be, Congratulations, that ring is gorgeous! I know you are head over heels excited with finding your venue, buying your dress and booking your favorite photographer… and you should be. Wedding planning is so.much.fun. Enjoy this season in your life because there isn’t anything like it.

That gorgeous wedding dress I was mentioning earlier, the one you said Yes! to, the one you’ve been dreaming about ever since you were a little girl, the one your groom is going to see you walking down the aisle in to be his wife, that dress is SO important. That dress will carry on memories that will last a lifetime. The moment you put on your dress is when it starts to feel real! If you are anything like me, the getting ready pictures are important to you. You’ll want to look back at your wedding pictures and remember those moments before the ceremony. That’s why where you decide to put on your wedding dress is extremely important. read more…

OUR CRAZIEST ADVENTURE OF 2014

Last year was an amazing year. It was a hard year. It was a rewarding year. It was one of those years that will be etched in my heart forever.

On top of going full-time into the photography business and celebrating our first year as home owners, we became FIRST TIME PARENTS!!! I know, I know… the whole  taking your business into your own hands and having a baby at the same time might sound crazy. And it is! Nothing is the same anymore. Everything changes.  read more…

WHY EVERY COUPLE DESERVES A WEDDING ALBUM

WHY EVERY COUPLE DESERVES A WEDDING ALBUM

When it comes to choosing their wedding collection, many couples can’t decide whether or not they would like to include a wedding album. The decision is particularly hard to make since we live in a digital age, and they get a cute little USB with all their wedding images anyway. But the question is — How often do you go back to that USB to look though pictures? Not too often. More often than not, it will be forgotten in a drawer somewhere gathering dust. read more…

3 WAYS TO KEEP YOUR BLOG CURRENT

3 WAYS TO KEEP YOUR BLOG CURRENT

What I love most about the ending of one year and the beginning of another, is counting all the blessings that the past year has held and all the new and exciting things that await. Every year has its challenges. We try to focus on so many things throughout the year, and start so many projects, that it becomes nearly impossible to carry them all on, and that’s okay. It is alright to feel overwhelmed at times, but what really matters is your determination to finish what you started. I am here to help you stay organized and keep your priorities in-check.
