It’s official. A few weeks ago Justin & I were sealed in the Washington DC Temple. Aside from the 95 degree weather that felt like 105 degrees. It was perfect. Absolutely perfect.
I wanted to take this opportunity to spotlight our AMAZING wedding photographer and friend, Alyssa Saylor of Alyssa Saylor Photography who is responsible for all of the stunning pictures below.
I met Alyssa at a photography workshop I attended 2 years ago in Asheville North Carolina. I think we both came in search of similar things and I felt immediately drawn to her. During a portion of the workshop we each shared some of our own work and I fell in love with her vintage inspired photography style and knew that when/if I ever got married I wanted her to do our pictures. In fact, after we got engaged and set the date, with all the arrangements that needed to be made, the first thing and BEST THING I did was contact Alyssa. It was an answered prayer that she was available on our date and made the trip in from Tennessee to photograph our wedding! A HUGE and unexpected bonus was that another girl we met at that workshop, Jenny Carroll (as ever photography), came in from Utah as a second shooter. SO AWESOME!!
They did an amazing job taking control of and managing our HUGE families and wedding party, while still capturing the special moments and little details happening all around. Here are some of the images we’ll cherish forever.
The eve has come! Tomorrow I leave for Asheville North Carolina to attend the workshop of one of my favorite photographers ever, the renowned and highly sought after, Joy Harmon Prouty of Wildflowers Photography; featured in/by Parenting Magazine, The Maternal Lens, Reverie Blog, and Access Hollywood as she’s the choice family photographer of celebs including Minnie Driver.
I’ve been following her worked for a couple years now and am continually inspired and constantly in awe of the creativity she brings as well as the beauty, whimsy, and “freeness” (is that a word?) she so effortlessly captures in her sessions. See for yourself in these images of hers from just a few of my favorite sessions.
WHAAAAAT!!!?? I’m sure now you can understand both why tonight feels like Christmas Eve and why I’ve been acting like a giddy child counting down the days. From delving into the “how to’s” of creating themed shoots that really tell a story, to exploring the antique shops of Asheville, to gaining insights into better balancing it all, I can’t wait to wake up tomorrow! So excited!
Tune in soon for pictures from the Wildflowers Workshop and our themed shoots, including a “cowboys & Indians” family session!!
AHHHHH!! I’m never gonna fall asleep tonight
Funny that just a couple months ago I was thinking to myself “man, I’ve done tons of newborn sessions with little girls but so few with baby boys.” No sooner than that crossed my mind 4 newborn sessions were booked and ALL BOYS!! Needless to say things have been pretty busy for me lately. Just a couple sneak peaks for now but here are some of the precious newborn sessions to be looking for in the next week or so!
I love long layovers so I decided to break up the long flight back to DC with a nice Utah pitstop. I’ll be in the Alpine & Provo areas from November 5-12 so let me know if you’re ready to get those Christmas Card pic taken!
Here’s the link to the booking calendar. Hope to see you soon!
IT’S ABOUT TIME!!! That’s all I have to say. It’s been almost 2 years and I’m craving me some paradise.

I’ll be on Kauai From the 29th of October to the 5th of November and would love to take some pictures.

I love antiquing and am always on the lookout for a good find, especially when I’m out of town. So there was no way I was going to let the long weekend in Michigan pass without dropping in on a few antique shops.

In my dreams I’d get an appointment in Italy or Switzerland! Crazy fact though; My stats do show an impressive amount of traffic to the blog/site from Italy, Germany, Turkey, Canada, Japan, but topping the chart(aside from the US) is the UK!!
