Where to begin my recap? 2018 was a wild ride. It brought me adventure, freedom, wisdom, and a lot of challenges. With every downhill brought a greater peaks after the climb. Each view unique and inspiring. So where to begin with a recap than at the beginning. And in lieu of a classic year in review (usually just photos and captions), I thought it’d be fun to go month by month and list out my favorite events and happenings by date.
Thankfully it's more common now than a few years ago, but having a second photographer at your wedding is of the most important and overlooked pieces of wedding planning. You might have set aside a specific piece of your budget for your photography services, and the photographers you inquire with ask you if you would like to add on a second photographer to your potential package.
Sending you our merriest Christmas wishes! Enjoy a day off, eat good food, and enjoy the little moments tomorrow. Lots of love!
What It Means To Be Timeless
Being timeless does not always mean “vintage” or “old-fashioned”, but rather a style that is adored over generations. Not a trend marked by a decade, but a refined look that is loved and revisited decades over. It is delicate, minimal, and romantic. When mixed with modern elements, classic details are what separate your wedding from the rest. It’s simple enough to enjoy without being overwhelmed, but detailed enough to show romance and your unique personality.
Over the next three weeks I am going to be sharing my best tips on how you can take modern elements to create a timeless wedding! Starting today with Attire. If you're looking for more, you can download my 14-page guide on the form box below!

Grab your calendars! It's time to start planning.

When puppy fever hits, it hits you hard. And stays! This wasn’t the first time we had run into this. Living in The Pearl, you see LOTS of dogs. At least two each block. Usually our response to talking about getting a dog was "after Jem graduates” or “after Katie goes full time in Photography” or “after we have a more permanent home”. Typically this puts the conversation to bed until the next time we pass by a shelter.
After a few consultations with your prospective vendors, viewing your venue, and one too many trips to the bridal boutiques, you might be ready for a full on Wedding Planning break. No kidding, it's exhausting! But since there's so much still to do, you're finding yourself overwhelmed and helpless as you slowly work your way through that intimidating task list.
So what do you do? How do other brides tackle this beast, and how come eloping isn't the more popular option? Before moving down your list, make sure you take time to do the following. If you've caught yourself struggling again in the next month or two. Stop, repeat these steps, and then continue to hustle your way to your dream wedding.
