In addition to the most beautiful ceremony I would consider converting just to get up in the chair. 😉 Congratulations to Samantha and Jeffrey. Mazel tov! Bonus to spend the night with @abbyrosephoto ❤
“You’re my favorite person. My favorite person to look at, to listen to, to talk to, to be with; my favorite person to miss, to love, to be everything. I want to share my life with you. I want to make memories with you, so I can look back in 50 years and be sure I haven’t missed anything... because all I’ve wanted was you.”

We are huge fans of long tables! The possibilities with table runners and centerpieces are endless 💜 .

Kids at weddings, yes or no? I think it totally depends on the kids, some kids can’t handle the pressure or expectations, and some kids thrive on the attention. These girls were awesome, so full of sugar and spice...and so much cuteness!
Made it home today in time to see two of my sisters, @malloryjane5 & @blechins and the @bluechaircafeyeg house band - Borrowed and Blue - perform tonight! As I quietly sang along with their performance of this Fleetwood Mac song, tears came to my eyes, and I knew my soul missed harmonizing with these ladies. It’s good to be home ❤️ #home#yeg#bertagirl#sisters#bluechaircafe#borrowedandblue
These two were just beyond fantastic to work with. I also loved spending time with @denayshookphoto and @sarahjordanphotography at the @fostercoworkshop today. I can't express enough how important it is to have friends in this industry. #communityovercompetition#fostercoworkshop
Following yesterdays post, I love kids at weddings! They do the funniest things and they love being the star of something crazy!
This is one of those crazy moments at Jay and Mary's wedding. Receptions are one of my favorite parts of the day because of the pure joy and excitement they bring out.
Katlyn and James, you two are a dream and your New York City wedding has been too. 😍
these two had an amazing team of vendors including @hollisfair the best wedding coordinator ever, and @luxorlimo for some very efficient and patient transportation.

Can I confess something?
Here’s my truth: I’ve been SO slow with responding to texts & PM’s lately (if you have an inquiry PLEASE email my business page - things slip through the cracks on other forms & it helps keep all the important info in one place ☺️). I have a handful of texts from WEEKS ago that I haven’t responded to. I get caught up in schoolwork & working at my other job & hustling & trying to be healthy & on and on and on! Last year, my business grew so much. I was traveling all over, booking a session daily, and every time I met with an old friend, they’d always say “wow, you look like you’ve been SO busy!” While I’m thankful for so many amazing clients, I wasn’t healthy last year. I was exhausted and drained and honestly felt like throwing the towel in with running a business more than once. Learning that I wasn’t alone was the best thing that ever happened to me last year (the @moniqueserraphotography workshop CHANGED MY LIFE in how I view busyness + success...here’s a hint: busyness does NOT = success). If you’re reading this and feeling overwhelmed and tired and just completely burned out, please know that you are NOT alone. Know that it’s OKAY to schedule days off for yourself. It’s OKAY to set boundaries & say no to things that aren’t meant for you so that you can give a big huge YES to the things that bring you joy! We got this, friends 🙌🏽
we have only 3 workshop seats left for March 24! come retreat with us + learn how I began saying YES to all the right things, started a business at 16 & all my tips + tricks to rocking your next session & kick starting the business you’ve been dreaming of this year! 💕
I love this moment not because it's the most technically amazing shot or astonishing view, but I love it for the story.
Chris and Gina were married with their two beautiful flower girls standing close by. These girls were fantastic all day long and could not contain their excitement! When the ceremony came to a close with Chris and Gina sharing a kiss and being pronounced husband and wife, the very first thing these girls did was quickly go see what Chris's ring looked like 😄
It's these moments, the unpredictable ones, that keep me excited for every wedding and every couple.

Anybody else tired of this dreary weather forecast? 🌧I mean, I’ll take 75 degrees any day... but give me some sunshine with it, please!! ☀️ Here’s something blue and PRETTY to lighten the dreariness outside. Happy Friday, y’all!
Carson & Emily under a big tree in the PNW. For all those who haven’t booked your wedding photographer yet, I’m currently booking for this year and 2019! In addition, I’ve made a smaller four hour wedding package and redesigned my elopement package!

Hello, hello 👋👋 ^^Me in my natural element doin my thang! Although if you saw me in the last week you wouldn’t recognize me because I did a little chop chop to my hair 💇🏼♀️ I love weather like today (sunny but still chilly), Italian food & my entire closet is black. Long walks help me keep my sanity and cuddles with my pup can cure anything. I love grabbing coffee with new friends so let’s collaborate/plan a wedding/hang ✌️☕️
It’s Friday 🙌🏼 and that means it’s time to treat yourself! These lovely cakes are all by our owners Mary & Linda and peep the watercolor cake details on the last cake by @apaperwedding 😍
