Ed and I are always so uplifted when we shoot weddings that are simply classic and clearly all about the marriage. This beautiful silvery blue winter wedding at the Cadre was definitely one of those! Alicia and Charles are so in love. They are a gentle, quiet couple, and to watch them together is to know that they will be making each other happy for a very long time. From their sweet First Look to the way they sought out each other for a quiet moment during their festive reception, it was obvious that they are right at home in this new family that they have built together.

There are so many things to love about an engagement session! But one of our very favorite things about them is that we get some one on one time with our couples, and really get to know them better on a personal level. Not only does this make us better equipped to photograph them on their wedding day, but it starts building a relationship so that we can truly call them friends later! It had been awhile since we first met with Taylor and George, so we were eager to hang out with them and learn more about how they love. We were in for such a treat!

We always know a wedding at the Cannon Center will be a good one, and Angelique and Marcus' day did not disappoint! We were excited for this one ever since their sexy engagement shoot, so we were so ready to get our cameras on them again! The wedding day was a perfect reflection of them. It was nearly entirely white, with only a splash of soft yellow here and there. The ceremony was intimate and classy, with soft sheers draping the entire room, while the reception had a modern sophisticated feel with lots of white leather lounge furniture. And the after party! Yes! After the reception, the entire space was flipped yet again for a nightclub party that lasted all night! We would have expected nothing less from Angelique and Marcus.

I firmly believe that the couples that Ed and I get along with best are those that have similar values as our own. I think that's true for a lot of relationships, actually. We easily build a rapport and intuitively know what is most important to them. This makes photographing their story and their important moments so much easier! Ed and I have been married long enough that we can tell you in an instant what is most important to us: family, friends, and living a good life to the fullest. We love to celebrate anything (we don't need much of an excuse for a party!), and as long as our loved ones are near, we're good.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! The only thing good about the winter is the holidays, so I start decorating as soon as I'm allowed. We have 5 (yes, 5. I have a problem.) full-sized trees, so it usually takes a...

It's a day early, and my table is set. For this, I am thankful. I am also thankful that I have a husband: who still loves me even though I steal all the covers at night. who puts up with my crazy ideas. who is there to listen to...
