I was SO pumped for Allison and Luke’s wedding a few weeks ago! Allison and Luke won my Wedding Photography Giveaway last year. I didn’t meet them until their engagement session and I just knew that their wedding day was going to be so amazing!! They are so super sweet together and just really nice, genuine people! I adore them, their families and their wedding party! Here are a few of my favs…

Super gorgeous flowers by Gloria at Hornbacher’s Osgood!

The Hilton Garden Inn looked amazing! If you want to transform your reception space and put your money into anything at the reception make it uplighting and linens. The uplighting just looks really expensive and changes the whole look of a hotel ballroom. It was gorgeous! I also LOVE when the cake is not set in front of a wall. I love the bokeh (the fuzziness) behind the cake and I think it makes the cake pictures so much more pretty when it’s not just shoved in front of a wall! Oh and the cake, by Fantasies in Frosting, was SO good! I gobbled mine up!

LOVED the sprig of lavender in with the menus!

The seating cards were propped up in a ton of lavender so I used it for my ring shot. I also took a little bit to put next to my bed!:)Been sleeping like a baby!

Do you see what I mean about the uplighting?! How gorgeous is that?! I love this so much more than just blackness behind them.

I recently had someone, who had not seen my images, ask me why I offer hair and make-up for my high school senior girl shoots. ‘Don’t you want them to look like themselves?’, they asked. Yes, I do. I want them to look exactly like themselves. I don’t require the girls to get it done. It’s just something that I offer. The hair and make-up that is done on my seniors is not overly done at all and in fact, a lot of girls have their hair and make-up look almost exactly like they would do it themselves. So why do I offer it to all my senior girls? Because of the experience. Not only is it just plain fun to have someone else do your hair and make-up, but you feel a little pampered. And who hasn’t left a salon feeling like a million bucks after getting your hair done? Now imagine that feeling and then going to get your photos taken. I bet you’d feel a lot more confident and excited about that shoot. And that’s why I offer it. Below are some recent shoots I’ve done with girls who had their hair and make-up done. I don’t think they look over done at all. In fact, I think they look very much like themselves.


I seriously have the best seniors ever! Jessica was so fun and super comfortable in front of the camera. Picking a few images for this blog was so hard but here are a few of my favs…

I’m dying over that hair curl!
