This field was VERY wet, so wet that when Lucy put her dress down on the path after it made a 'slap' sound. She didn't care though, she knew the photos would last forever and that it would be worth it... look how gorgeous that dress is too, you could forgive her for being protective over it, but nope, she was a total legend!!!
Have we met? If not, hey there! I’m Amanda! Wedding and senior photographer serving Northwest Ohio and beyond. I love capturing romance, candid moments, and pure joy. When I’m not working full time as an oncology nurse or shooting, you’ll find me working out, refinishing furniture, or eating delicious food with family or friends. I am SO excited to close my wedding season with tomorrow’s Michigan wedding! It’s going to be an amazing fall day! What are your weekend plans? 📷 : @itskyleedaniels
It's n #fridayintroductions over here ya'll! I'm Heather the photographer at Heather K Cook Photography. I specialize in Wedding and Portrait photography and I love working with bloggers too! I live in Atlanta, GA with two ferocious lions (okay more cuddly cats), love to consume pizza of all variations, and of course, have the special "Heather Pour" glass of wine. ...
This weekend is homecoming for my college, Georgia Tech so I will be taking a well deserved weekend off! But I want to know, what college team do you root for? There is no wrong answer (unless it is any school besides Tech! 😜)

Hi. I'm Heather. ⠀
I'll title this #fridayintroductions post "Spoonfeather in stained glass"⠀
When I was young I would wear outfits that told stories. For example, if I had a terrific 80's sweatshirt on with kittens playing in the grass, I would wear green pants to represent the grass. A pair of shorts with tiny umbrellas on them would warrant a yellow top to represent the sunshine that would make the rain go away. Make sense? I mean, every young child dresses to tell a story, right? 💁🏼⠀
I also got kicked out of dance class when I was 6 because I refused to "vogue" in a diagonal across the dance studio. But that's a post for another day. ⠀
Happy Friday, friends!⠀
It had been a really sunny morning and just before the ceremony the heavens opened... Lucy didn't care one bit, got to love a bride whose not phased by the weather at all and just rocks it no matter what <3
Life is messy. It’s not as clear-cut as we many times wish it was. Navigating through the ups and downs can be difficult and draining. I know that sometimes it’s easier to just give in or give up. But I want to challenge you today to show up anyways. 💖💖💖 In the midst of messiness decide to show up and do the next right thing. Show up for yourself, show up for the ones you love and show up because you know that that’s the right thing to do! 😊🙌🙏💖 #daringgirlsshowup
I've tried to caption this photo a few times but all I have is 😍! Our rescue bulldog is named Betty White and she has quite the personality. She wanted me to tell you that the BRAND NEW can coolers are listed (link to shop in profile) 🎉 Forever grateful for @paigeblakeslee for capturing this moment of pure joy when Betty jumped on the porch swing! Andddd that's why I have such a death grip on her, bc her center of gravity is a bit off), but whose isn't? Cheers!
The northwoods is where my heart lives, but I can't complain about the gorgeous Wisconsin State Parks I get to explore in Northeast Wisconsin. I'm so excited to have recently camped at this specific park, as I will be going to a shoot here in a few short days! Tell me where you love to go to relax.
Wow I've not posted in ages, it's been a bit crazy this end with wedding season and a side project I'm working on, apologies for the radio silence recently. Here's one I'm calling 'Here she comes', that split moment before the doors open and Paul gets to see Jade walking down the aisle!
Happy #friyay everyone! I'm not in front of the camera often, so for my #fridayintroductions this week, I give you a more accurate depiction of what I look like....situated behind a camera 📸
I love Mexican food, live music, spontaneous adventures, and getting caught in the rain. (No, this is not a classified ad for a companion...though I do love making new friends!)
I'm headed to #sanfrancisco in a week and would love to collaborate with some fabulous people while I'm there! Hit me up if you or someone you know is interested!!
Contrast y'all! ⠀
This might be my favorite pair of brand patterns ever. I love the OCD perfection and stark black and white of one juxtaposed with the rustic elegance of the other. Together, they are going to tell this brand's story so well when we get their new e-commerce website launched.⠀
All of us are composed of a little of this and a little of that, and I think it's oh so important to show variety in your brand visuals. Consistency doesn't have to be boring and stale, and variety doesn't have to lack strategy. Done well, contrast and variety in your brand design helps tell your whole story isntead of just a little snippet.
Happy Feature Friday friends! I know it’s still October, but come on….. just look at this holly jolly goodness! ❄️🎄⛄️If these don’t make you wish for Christmas to hurry up and get here, I don’t know what will. Only 5 more weeks until we can officially start decorating for Christmas (or so they say….). If you are crushing on these gems as much as I am, go check out these awesome IG feeds!
Before you start complaining about not being where you want to be or where you thought you should be right now, ask yourself if you have even taken one step to get to those places. Have you started? #doitwithpurpose
It was November 2016. Smack dab in the middle of Q4.
It’s an exciting time of year. The holidays are coming. A fresh start is right around the corner. And most people are rejuvenated by all the excitement in the air.
But instead I was feeling stuck. I wasn’t feeling lit up by my business anymore.
I felt alone.
Like no one else has struggles like this right?
I’m suppose to be “living the dream” right?
I’ve a business that allows me to stay home with my kids, that allows me to help support our family, that is SUPPOSE to be my passion.
And in some ways it absolutely way. And I felt very blessed to be in the position I was. But I also new that things had to change.
I knew I wanted support, friendship, and simply to surround myself with people who understood, and that I could feel 100% free to share my truths, my struggles, and my business with. Nothing held back.
I’m not someone who makes decisions on a whim.
I don’t spend money or resources willy-nilly.
I’m very calculated in my investments, always making sure I know exactly how it will affect our family in either a positive or negative way, before jumping in.
But in November 2016, I went all in WITHOUT everything figured out.
Without each dime accounted for. Without knowing exactly how it was all going to work out. Without a backup plan in place.
If you’re sold on the idea of being a part of a powerfully supportive community, then you’ll want to check out the video I shot for you with my top 3 ways to currate the perfect small group for youself (with options for no matter what stage you’re at, and if you’re looking for ways that include a financial commitment or not!). I personally got started with option #1 , dabbled in option #2 at different points on my path, and ultimately found option #3 to be my sweet spot.
Checkout the 3 Options in the Video. LINK IN BIO.
It’s insane how you look back at pieces you’ve created that you loved and were so proud of. Then you look at today’s to see how far you’ve come and it really does prove that practice makes perfect. If you find a passion or even just have a hobby that you love, stick with it and flourish with it because each day is a new day and there’s always room for growth. I thought I’d do a flashback to this quote from a few months ago as I love the strength behind it and to show that I am also growing. 💛✨
Just loaded up and sent the brand visual library to this lady boss with the magic hands, @rebalancereiki. Can't wait to see what branding magic she now does to propel her business forward. How do you feel about your brand? What's your single biggest challenge when it comes to your branding? Tell me in the comments below🔽.
3 years ago a today I said yes to spending the rest of my life with my best friend. In the past three years we have certainly had our fill of challenges but I couldn't imagine being on this adventure with any one else. Tag someone you're thankful
I neglected to realize that you can’t just find overhead projector bulbs at any hardware store....
Meaning at 8:00 pm last night, hubs made the decision to go get me a real-life digital projector... much easier to tote than the large one...

TGIF! Soaking up gorgeous 70 degree weather here in Munich today. I'm loving this extra long summer we're being blessed with. It's crazy to think we're halfway to November and only ten weeks until Christmas. I'm in my busiest season right now with work, but I'm looking forward to slowing down for the holidays a bit to prepare for my second babe to arrive. Happy Friday, y'all! Make the most out of today.

For #fridayintroductions , here’s my heart. On a cold March night, we took a walk together around Virgina Tech’s campus. We laughed and talked. I asked for him to be honest with me. Nearly nine years later, he always has been. He encourages me and humbles me. We are close, but give each other space to breathe. Our relationship is not a perfect one, because there is always room to grow together, and we see our older friends who are still in love after so many years, and we talk of telos love. How will our love look on our last day together? I’m not sure, but I hope it’s as old and new, broken and healed, and as reflective and transparent as two people can be when they honestly love each other. // photo by @threeregionnc
I don't have it all together. In fact, I wore the same outfit the last three days and my hair may as well be a George Washington tight white curly wig it has so much dry shampoo in it right now, and we didn't grocery shop this week, and our living room looks like a cardboard recycling facility..... ⠀
But I'm here. I'm up and moving and creating. ⠀
Something shifted in me over the last 6 weeks. I don't know what it is. But the way I explained it to my mom on the phone was "I just cannot wait to turn 30 because I feel like in my 30's I'm really gonna kick some ass...." I'm letting whatever 'it' is settle in a bit before I write more about it all, but it's gonna be good.⠀
This is not glamorous. You see a farm and an amazing tribe and wine clinks and weddings... those are snapshots. Those are brief moments of a life that is just like yours. Messy. Beautiful and messy and habitually organized chaos and a lot of email time and a sore back and list an actual mile long in my phone entitled "People I owe favors to" ⠀
Remember all of this. That our lives are not meant to be perfect, they were designed to be messy. Because when its messy, it means stuff is happening, we're figuring it out. We are wading through the newness to the familiar comforts we relish in each day- thats the mess. ⠀
I'm Kalin, I'm going to design your wedding flowers, or lead you in a workshop, or help you develop your business, or just sit across the table from you and fill up your glass. Whatever capacity its in, I promise you it'll be a beautiful messy thing we create together. ⠀
Coffee Clinks my sweets⠀
PS- #fridayintroductions and I mentioned my birthday?? Which is in MAY. Okay Kalin, settle down #but30ismyyear ⠀
Friday is here! ⠀
Whew- My sensitive soul is craving some down time this weekend. My weekend bucket list includes: going to the pumpkin patch, carving said pumpkins, cleaning our entire house, watching Hocus Pocus and taking a fall color drive. Can fall stay forever and just never leave? ⠀
I’m all about creating traditions and savoring the seasons! What’s your favorite way to celebrate the fall season? Other than cider and donuts of course because that’s a must! ⠀
Cheers to you and a big cheers to Friday! P.S. this super comfy and cute dress if from @duffieldlane ! It’s the best fabric ever 💛 I choose comfort over cuteness every time and when it’s both it feels like a home run! #fridayintroductions#livethelittlethings#flashesofdelight#theeverygirl#livecolorfully#realsimple
This is totally crazy but it is true. It's madness. It's probably because they're terrified of the cost and have no idea how to proceed. If only they knew they could get a simple landing page up there with a signup form, at an absolute minimum of expense and hassle!
And one day she discovered she was fierce, and strong, and full of fire, and that not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears. - Mark Anthony ----------------
Feel the fear and allow yourself to grow through it. Who cares if you FAIL? At least you can say you tried and survived! ✨

This is you taking your gift and SHARING it.
This is about your God-given passion paving the way for you…
“A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before the great.” (Proverbs 18:16)
Don’t entertain this work if all it means to you is ‘get rich quick’.
This is about pouring into people’s LIVES which means seeking profit first is never going to be the way to move forward.
