Happy New Year! I  realize that January is nearly over, but I consider the entire month of January to still be the start of the New Year. I mean, we haven't even gotten to experience 11/12 of it yet! This year, I have decided that I'm doing New Year's goals instead of New Year's resolutions. "Resolution" is almost a dirty word these days! So instead, I have written down a list of personal goals and business goals for this year. An actual written-down list. To keep me accountable. And on track. I hope.

The first time we ever met Samantha and Slay, we knew we had to shoot their wedding. Yes, they are amazingly good looking. I mean, just scroll down a little. Did you see her??? It's completely unfair that one person can have that many good genes! But that's not the reason. Not even close. We always care way more about what's on the inside than what's on the outside. And their outsides have nothing on what's inside! They both have amazing hearts that were built to serve others. They are some of the most caring, selfless people we've ever met, and we love them for that!

One of my favorite things on a wedding day is when the bride and groom exchange notes before they see each other. It is the perfect way to say everything you know you will forget to say, the perfect way to keep the importance of the day at the forefront of your mind, the perfect way to build anticipation for that moment when you finally see each other.
