Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! I know a day such as this can have very different meanings, depending on what season of life you’re in, and whether or not you loathe it as a holiday created by greeting card companies, or not. But wherever you stand, I respect your opinion. I don’t put a TON of […]

  • Ashley@AttemptsAtDomestication - Awww! How cute! I still have to put Jesse’s gift together!ReplyCancel

  • Tori - I snuck Aaron’s into his office yesterday, so that it would be there and waiting for him today – he’s usually the sneaky one, so I’m pretty proud of myself this time! :)ReplyCancel

Back in June of 2011 I had the privilege of shooting the wedding for a very dear family friend of Aaron’s. He’s known Talia’s family as long as he can remember, and even refers to her and all of her siblings as his cousins. Mrs. Barnes is best friends with my mother-in-law and it’s been […]

  • Jennifer (Deleted Space Creative) - Unsurprisingly, I LOVE the program! You should do a feature on JUST that! I want to see more – love the idea of having more information than just the order of proceedings, and the old newspaper idea is awesome.

  • Susie Rayburn - I want to get married again – to the same wonderful man, of course! – just so you can take my pictures. We have an album full of sad (dismal, poorly-made) snapshots from our wedding from almost 20 years ago. I never look at them. If I had an album with pictures that are pure ART – like these – I would have it on my lap every evening!ReplyCancel

  • Giann - Stunning. Absolutely stunning. You are truly gifted. :)

Time to get back into posting monthly goals (as originally inspired by Katelyn), and as it’s not TOO far into the month, yet, I figured today would be a good time for that! As usual, I have a list for Personal Goals, and one for Business Goals. So, what am I aiming for this month? […]

  • Jillian Hopkins - Do you have a new soup recipe that you already want to try or are you looking for something? I’ve got a couple of soup recipes that we’ve both enjoyed!

  • Tori - feel free to email them to me, ladies! i’m always up for new recipes. :)ReplyCancel

Anyone else working on tax stuff today and/or this week, and wanting to bang your head against a wall? This is, by far, is my least favorite time of the year and aspect of owning a business….but I’m grateful that I can rely on my CPA to do all the REALLY hard work. (Yes, that’s […]

In my attempt to continue playing catch-up with posting weddings, today I bring you the second one from 2011. Scott & Courtney got married at their home church in Lafayette, IN and then had their reception at a lovely country club in the same city. It was a perfectly overcast April day, and Courtney truly […]
