It’s Time to Show Our Gratitude – it’s Memorial Day!

It’s Memorial Day! To many Americans this means an extra long weekend full of bar-b-que, friends and fun. Most of us neglect the real reason for this holiday – remembering and honoring those who have served our country. So to do our part to honor our veterans, and those currently serving, here is a collection of pictures from the past with a patriotic flair. We always love photographing weddings and portraits, but we also enjoy finding the beauty in the every day. The last photo in this post is actually a black and white photo we’ve colorized ourselves. We’re excited to debut this new technique we’ve learned on such a special weekend.

A big thank you to all those serving and God Bless America!

“I do” in pretty pink, black and white!

This wonderful couple had the best smiles around! And they were surrounded by great smiling family and friends. From the fun time of learning roles at the rehearsal, to stealing a private moment together under the trees this day was filled with love. To make the day more unique, the toasts were opened to all their guests. Many excited blessing of joy were bestowed upon the newlyweds!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms out there!

I had to wonderful opportunity to photograph an extended family at their home. It was the first time they had a family portrait taken with the whole family in years. There was so much love and joy expressed between brothers, cousins, grandparents, and mothers. So, in honor of mother’s day, here’s a few of our favorites from this dynamic family.

Casual business portraits


We had the great privilege of photographing a dear friend for a publication. We had a casual outdoor session and were joined by her very friendly puppy! From forest background to rocking on the porch, we found many great photo locations around her home.
