Big things are launching SOON. But can I talk about how wonderful @theautumnrabbit has been to work with on this newest project?  We’re not even done yet and I am already so thrilled. I will almost be sad when our work together is complete.

Would you rather be the best at one thing and bad at everything else, or great and many things but the best of none? I have a hard time answering that question. The competitive side of me always wants to be the best. Then reality settles in and I know I just may never be the best. But I’m also okay with being great at many things. It allows for variety and new adventures. So whether you’re the best at what you do or if you wear many hats, it’s about enjoying the journey you are on. 📷: @itskyleedaniels

Starting this Thursday morning off with some puppy snuggles on the couch, watching the Grinch, and getting lots of work done before I head back to Florida this weekend! I’m also crossing my fingers hard for a gorgeous sunset just like this one on Sunday evening for one of my 2018 couples! #abbywallerbrides

It feels like it was just this unseasonably warm and perfect October day for an outdoor wedding. And now we are just about to polish off 2017. Time has a way of getting away from you like that.

Who else here loves a good table setting?! ✋🏻 And while the food that takes over the oh so pretty place setting might have it beat in my food-lover’s heart, I must say it is a close second!

It’s hard to choose just three words that encapsulate my photography. But one thing is for sure- I strive to capture joy. Nothing gets me like an image that screams pure joy.

It’s crazy to think that the Christmas decorations are up, I’m listening to Christmas music, and today I had my first consultation for a 2019 couple! Where in the world is time going!? But I am so thrilled to see what the future holds!

It’s crazy to think that this session was almost a month ago and yet today was nearly 40 degrees WARMER than this day was. And yet they still killed it. Can’t wait for their wedding next October!

My sister said something about me the other day. It wasn’t mean, and I didn’t really take offense to it. But it made me think. She said “Everything comes easy to you.” Oh sister, how very wrong you are about that. I know you didn’t mean anything by it. But things really don’t come easy for me. I have to work really hard! I truly believe there are some people who are just naturals at certain things. I am not one of them. Yes, I am good at many things. But I have to work really hard to even achieve that “good” status. “You can eat whatever you want and you stay so thin.” Actually, no. I’ve played sports year round since I was in sixth grade, including running 70 miles a week in college for Division 1 while going to nursing school and working part time. “You make everything you do look so easy.” The hustle is real! Sometimes I feel like a duck on the water- looking all calm as they peacefully glide along the water. But really, the legs are working overtime beneath the surface.  The Lord has blessed me with a driven and ambitious personality. But with that comes a lot of hard work. So don’t be fooled by what looks so “perfect.” There’s a lot of work going on behind the scenes.

Our memories are deeply rooted by our senses. A certain smell can quickly trigger a memory that is associated with it. A candle that reminds you of grandma’s baking. The smell of the shampoo your mom uses that you can smell as she embraces you on a bad day.  My husband once sprayed my pillow with his cologne before leaving for a long weekend so I would be comforted as I went to sleep without him next to me for a few nights. It’s amazing how much just a smell can revive such vivid memories. @dolcegabbana

This image is from my last wedding of last year. Since then, I’ve had 6 weddings and have grown so much in my shooting. From composure, to editing, to my overall style, it’s amazing to see how much has changed and improved. But one thing remains- and that is how I strive to capture joyful and authentic images from your wedding day. And that is why this will forever be one of my favorite images.

Guys. It is cold today. I mean, REAL cold. But these two 😍 They didn’t say a word about the chill. They just snuggled right up and reminded me why I love this. Perfect start to my Saturday!

Good morning friends! I’m getting bundled up in about 10 layers this morning for an engagement session and it’s less then 30 degrees here!  Here we go!

The struggle is REAL this week my friends. Now that it’s dark before 6, it’s like something switched in my head. I’m exhausted, unmotivated, and want all the soul foods (well, that may not be new) Now that busy season is over I’m ready for a break. But there is always work to be done. I think there’s a fine line between taking a break and getting in a rut. I definitely need a break right now, but am also trying to avoid the rut. Because there is always some hustlin’ to be done.

Wishing my BEST gal pal a happy birthday! 🎂 🎁 This year is looking a little different with her officially becoming a MOM to baby Cameron. This is one of my favorite pictures of us because it captures our friendship so perfectly. Thank you for being such a constant in my life.

I love the idea of hand written vows. I have no idea why we didn’t do this when I got married. But then again, my husband is quite the long winded one. We might have been there a while 🤣. Seriously though, how sweet to exchange your own words and promises to each other- and even sweeter to have it documented in this keepsake to look back on. And when the going gets tough- oh because it does- you can look back on these vows you made to one another.

Every week I ask myself, “how is it Thursday already?” We spend so much time when we’re younger wishing we were grown up. Now a days I’m wishing time would just slow down for a while.

I love everything about this. I love the way the sun is perfectly diffused behinds the clouds, giving just a light glow on her skin. I love seeing the lace detail in the back of her wedding gown that she carefully chose for the best day of her life. I love that even though you can’t see their faces, you can feel the romance and joy between them. It’s all the little things in this image that I love.  Dress: @belleamourbridal

Boy does today feel like true cross country season or what? Ten years ago I was running in my high school regional meet, unsure if I would even continue my running career into college. Six AND seven years ago I was part of a MAC championship team at the University of Toledo.  We were back to back champions and nationally ranked for 3 out of the 4 years that I ran there.  Sure, you could say I was just a walk on. But I was part of a team; a team that, together, helped lead us to conference championships and national rankings. I did the same training. I had the same physical pains and mental breakdowns. I worked hard for four years while earning a nursing degree. This is not to boast. This is me being proud of the person I have been molded into today. I am thankful for the opportunities I have been given. Opportunities that helped shape my character and set a foundation built on hard work and dedication. Because really, you can do and be whatever you want in this life with those two things as your foundation. @toledoxctf

Delivered Ben and Kinsey’s wedding album yesterday. I loved getting to watch her look through it for the first time and then she even sent me a video of Ben looking through it. What a joy it’s been serving this couple!

Since my wedding season came to an end this past weekend, I’ve been recalling all of the amazing couples I had the opportunity to serve this year. I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunities that I have had this year.  I do not take this job lightly and value the responsibility of capturing moments that my couples will be able to look back on forever.
