Last week, I kicked off 2017 engagement sessions with Allysa and Nathan’s beautiful shoot in downtown Fredericksburg! The weather has not quite decided whether or not spring is here…but we had the most amazing day: 60 and sunny with just the right amount of fluffy pink blooms…it was perfect! Allysa and Nathan are such a […]

You saw me introduce the brand new 2018 spokesmodel team on the blog two weeks ago, and I finally had the chance to meet them all IN PERSON at last weekend’s meet and greet event! All 19 beautiful girls came together at the studio for a night with yummy snacks, desserts, games and a photo booth […]

We had been dreaming and scheming up this shoot for MONTHS before the workshop began…and seeing it come to life (better […]

At the beginning of this week, I hosted my first ever two-day workshop with 16 photographers from all of the country. It was also the first time I taught wedding-related education, the first time I sold out a workshop in 3 days and the first time I taught 20+ of content in a 48 hour […]

Instagram has been the secret weapon in my business’ marketing since day one. And now, I am able to utilize it better than EVER thanks to one of my new favorite tools for scheduling my social media! I honestly can’t believe I haven’t shared this yet…but Planoly is my new FAVORITE tool for scheduling my […]
