A few years ago, a client of mine was mailing me a check to pay the final balance for their wedding photography. He said, “Did you know you live directly next door to our wedding planner?” Of course I had no idea. While I had seen this lovely blonde girl running around the apartment a […]

I get a lot of questions from my seniors about what they should wear for their session. We get it! It’s a tough decision. Most of our sessions include at least two outfits and it can be difficult to nail down exactly what you think you will want to look back on in your photos […]

They were in the area checking out wedding venues and we struck up conversation with them. It just so happened that we were on a random trip over there, looking […]
