I'm back!

I have been a slacker. It is true. I haven't been updating my blog or Facebook page regularly. However, now that my attention is no longer devoted to our wedding, I'm getting back into the swing of things.

First off, our wedding was absolutely beautiful (I may be a bit biased, but I loved every minute of it)! It was a gorgeous August day, many of our family and friends showed up to celebrate with us, and I got to marry an amazing man! We had a wonderful and adventurous honeymoon in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
So you see, planning took up quite a bit of my time. This is why I had a slow year business-wise. I didn't shoot very many weddings and haven't been updating my online presence like I should.

Right now I'm currently working on a new blog-site and am super excited to get it up and running! I'm also working on photos from last Sunday's wedding, which was a fun lego-filled celebration! Until the new website gets up, please feel free to contact me by e-mailing me at So far next year's weddings are looking pretty fantastic! I'm looking forward to a great wedding season!
For now, here's a little peek from last Sunday:

Danielle & Blake | Wedding

Danielle & Blake's wedding was just gorgeous! The details were beautiful, the bridal party was a blast to work with, and Blake's reaction to Danielle walking down the isle was perfect!

Danielle & Blake | Engagement

I think it's kind of normal for photographers to go on about how awesome their couples are. But they kind of have every right to if their couples are as great as mine...I'm a bit biased, but I think I get the best of them anyways.

Speaking of great couples, I figured you could use some more pictures of Danielle & Blake. Have a happy Monday and don't forget to check back in a couple months for their wedding pictures!
