Rocklyn and Chris had a beautiful Hawaiian wedding right in Kentucky! Rocklyn was born and raised in Hawaii, and while they did not travel back there for the wedding, they were sure to bring pieces of it all the way to Kentucky.

Yesterday, Isaac and I got back from our little four-night vacation in Savannah, Georgia…and I can honestly say it was exactly what my soul needed. It was the perfect trip for us in such a dark time of our lives. While that dark cloud hasn’t suddenly disappeared, it has become something we can begin to […]

Surrendering to Peace

We had so much fun capturing this sunset engagement session at Mahr Park, a new installment in Madisonville, Kentucky. Let me just say…these two made MAGIC during their session. After touring their wedding venue and getting to spend the day with them I am even more excited for their June wedding day! Hannah and Brandon […]

It was SO fun getting to spend time with Alex and Blake for their engagement session in Evansville, Indiana. Getting to Burdette Park early, Isaac and I toured the park and found the perfect spots for their photos. We knew at the start of the session we were going to be a great fit when […]

I always tell the newly engaged to make a list of the most important things to you on a wedding day – the things you will NOT compromise on. When these values are considered, your wedding day will be what you always have dreamed it to be. For me, of course, photography is at the […]

Oh my goodness, where do I begin? I guess I could start at the beginning, about 19 years ago when Mackenzie and I became best friends. As my little sister you can imagine we have been through it all. We grew up together and I always kept an eye out for her. When Mackenzie came […]

When Mandy first called me, I just knew we were a great fit. Her voice was excited and she already had a beautiful vision for her wedding day! She was so sincere in wanting to capture her and Alex’s love for one another and their mutual love of God. She was already planning ways to […]

When I think of my daughter, I imagine squishy little legs pressed against me as I hold her. With dreamy eyes, I imagine those sleepless nights that would have been. The crying in the back seat of our car on the way to see family. I think of the little smiles that would come across […]
