Thank you for checking out my blog, where you will see snippets of my life, my amazing clients, and from time-to-time, my crazy dogs, Samson and Rico!

My husband, Craig, and I love raising our son, Todd, in beautiful Idaho, but you can often find us traveling all over the west coast to visit family and attend football camps.

I am a lover of film and timeless romance and I love telling my couples' stories here on the blog.

So, sit back, relax with a snack or a bevvie, and scroll through the beautiful photos I've been blessed to create, the adventures I've been blessed to take, and the experiences I've been blessed to share with you all.

Much love!
