I believe there’s nothing more endearing than receiving a hand written note in the mail.
If I’m not shooting a wedding on the weekend, you’ll likely find me in an antique store. My modern day hero is Joanna Gaines.... and shiplap.
I come from a long line of huggers and I embrace it. And soon I will be embracing you!
My husband & I met in high school, we’ve been married for 13 years and have 4 kids.
If I could have any other job in the whole world, I would be a cast member on SNL (and JT would be the host EVERY. SINGLE. TIME!)
My greatest guilty pleasure is likely my running playlist. (Don't ask – I'm far too proud to tell you.)
I'm convinced that road trips have the power to cure just about anything.
My graphic design roots run deep. I often spend more time admiring the layout of a menu than I do actually reading it.
I've never met an ice cream I didn't like.
Live music – of any genre – is worth every penny.
Because you won't have a CARE in the world knowing that today you marry your best friend.
Because your day will be filled with LAUGHTER – you know there is nothing better than seeing each other smile.
Because this day is so much BIGGER than just the two of you!
Because your love is HISTORY in the making – your grandchildren will cherish these photos one day.
In a little old farm house in my Grandma Schmidt's bedroom hangs a photo of her & my grandpa on their wedding day – 63 years ago. My grandpa passed away nearly 26 years ago and at times, walking by that photo is a needed reminder. A reminder of the shape of his face, or which of my kids resemble him, or where I came from. Together, they built a life with 8 children – now there are 14 grandkids and 13 greatgrandkids (and counting!) – all of whom have, or will, walk past that photo.
Your wedding photos should be adored & shared, withstanding time & generations just like the black & white photos of our grandparents. I love when couples involve their loved ones in their celebration – like Jen, who sewed a piece of her grandpa's shirt into her dress, or Dylan, who wore his grandpa's bow tie, Bri, who adorned her cake with her parents' cake topper!
