This day started with so many smiles, lots of hugs, and just the right amount of coffee and friendship. It seems like it was just last week that Nick, Alie, and I were standing in a parking lot, talking and dreaming about wedding plans 45 minutes after their engagement session was supposed to be over.

Steph and Zach met after Steph’s Dad gave Zach her phone number. They started talking and ended up hitting it off and that was the beginning of their sweet relationship! They dated for a while and then Zach proposed to Steph. As soon as I saw them together, it was one of those moments where […]

That’s my built-in best friend, adventure buddy, and my favorite enemy growning up. That man… he is a rock and loves his people hardcore. He’s always up for climbing mountains […]

Caleb and Andrea have one of those stories that just make your heart melt. They met in elementary school but it wasn’t until middle school that they realized the other person existed.

Ya’ll, Zach and Steph are the best. Zach is just perfect for Steph, and that’s quite a feat because Steph is one of the sweetest, fun people you’ll ever meet! I’ve known Steph for several years, so when I saw that she posted a photo of her and a boy, I messaged her right away […]

When I think of Chris and Kaily, the first thing that comes to mind is Kaily’s laugh. She has the ability to light up an entire room with that laugh. Chris is a little bit quieter than Kaily, but he too loves to laugh. They’re both crazy talented (which you’ll hear about later) and they […]
