What a beautiful wedding day this was!! I have been excited about this wedding for quite a while, even though their engagement session was just a couple of weeks ago (my last blog post!) and they booked and planned their whole day in just 4 months!  Do you know what I loved from the get go though? It had some similar elements to Michael’s and my wedding day.  There were some non traditional ideas and parts of their timeline, and they planned quickly… because when you know, you know, right?  Michael and I also had some non traditional elements to our wedding and planned with just a few extra weeks than Lindsey and Adam did.

Lindsey and Adam have known each other a long time, but didn’t fall in love until much more recently.  They are both very involved in their church (Adam works there!), and their ceremony was full of so many beautiful references to marriage from the Bible (and some of the prettiest ceremony music I have ever heard!).  Their pastor spoke at length about them learning to love and serve each other as a part of their marriage, and I have no doubt that these two will do both of those things very well.  The reason I know that is because I see it now!  Adam has such a servant’s heart towards Lindsey, who is as kind and sweet as people come.  They are just kind to each other and so considerate of those around them, and it showed in their interactions all day long.  I am so excited share these favorites from their beautiful spring wedding!!

Lindsey, you made the most stunning bride!!
It was such a beautiful ceremony!
A reception full of endless types of desserts? That is my type of reception!!

I'm also a photography educator, wife to my favorite person on the planet, mama to 3 amazing kids and an energetic Aussie, and obsessed with statement jewelry and all desserts (especially fruit pies!). 

As a past high school teacher, I have a major heart for education. After going full time in my business, I have built a business I love that gives me an almost 6 figure salary and allows me to be home part time with my kids.  I dream for you to run a business that enhances your life and lights you up, and I believe I can help you learn how to do it with a little hustle and a lot of heart!

You're in the right place!  As a past high school teacher, educating others is my life's work and a HUGE part of my business!  I have been teaching moms and hobbyists how to use their camera from first purchasing it all the way to coaching them into businesses of their own, and I'd love to help you as well, wherever you are (and whatever camera you have!).

I'm so glad you are here!  Teaching Photographers and other small business owners how to run more joyful, successful, and profitable businesses is one of my favorite parts of my business!  I specialize in working with photographers to make their goals a reality (or figure out what their goals should be in the first place!).
