Hi friends! I hope you all had an amazing fourth of July weekend with family and friends! My sister and her husband came up from Tennessee to join us for the weekend and we had so much fun! From Saturday to Monday morning, we walked nearly 15 miles exploring Chicago. We started the “tour of […]

To my love, I cannot believe it’s already been 7 years of married life with you and 11 years since the first time I saw you walk across my high school cafeteria. I loved you then and even though I didn’t think it could be possible, I love you even more today. You’ve taught me […]

This past weekend I went home to Tennessee to celebrate my brother and soon-to-be sister-in-law’s engagement party! Friday was the main event and we were surrounded by some of my parents most treasured friends and their families.  The next morning, all of the girls on my mom’s side of the family + plus my sweet […]

  Last week we had to fly down to Florida so we decided to bring our maltichon pup, Charlie, with us.  He hasn’t flown since he was about 10 weeks old, so I was really nervous to bring him on the plane.  He’s now 5 years old, quite spoiled if I might add, and has a […]

First, let me start off with a little back story: I took voice lessons as a kid and I continued my lessons all throughout high school and some of college as I majored in Musical Education for my first 2 years. I loved to sing. Well, I shouldn’t say LOVED …I still do. I LOVE […]

It was a warm summer day in the middle of June.  My friend, Haley, and I were sitting in our high school cafeteria waiting on the Drivers Ed class to begin.  I looked up from my notebook (or maybe I was talking to Haley at the time? Gosh it’s been so long I barely remember every […]

It’s that time of year when we look back on the past 12 months, reflect on our mistakes and our accomplishments, and count our blessings for what has been brought our way and for the people that have been put into our lives.  I absolutely love to create goals for myself and then look back […]

Love this!!! It’s so great to see things checked off from 2015!! Praying blessings to be poured on your and your family in 2016!

As 2015 comes to an end, I love going back through all of the images from the sessions and weddings that I’ve had the opportunity to photograph.  From nearly every wedding day, I have a special section of behind the scenes images of me that I save (thanks to my sweet second shooters) that up […]

Today marks one year that I’ve called Chicago my home. When I say it out loud I immediately think “wow! I can’t believe it’s been that long already!” but then again, I think “wow! It’s only been a year?!”  Today was the day that I hadn’t even moved into our home yet, but I already […]

Thanks girl!!

I have tried to describe in words what it means to be a photographer and why I chose to be one.  I simply can’t put it into words. Only photographs. And this only seems appropriate, I think. Sometimes photographs can speak louder than words. Please take a minute to really look at these photographs. Look at […]

Love your post Happy Anniversary.

Kathy Hamilton

Happy 6th Anniversary to you 2. Wishing you many, many more years of making memories to be cherished forever.

I am a goal setter, a list and schedule maker, and I write down EVERYTHING.  Yeah…I’m that kind of person.  Sometimes I get so many thoughts and ideas in my head that I can’t lay down to sleep at night.  Often times, I find myself grabbing a pen and paper (or maybe even my iPhone) to […]

And you will Liz! 🙂 Love you! And I just might have some good connections for you about the Napa Valley wedding some time… I do have friends there ya know. 😉

Let’s see if I can get through this one without crying….  Nope. Here come the water works. I’m not exactly sure what prompted me to write such a personal (and kind of dark, sorry guys) post today.  I have sat here thinking and thinking and I’ve come up with two things.  1. I just had […]

Thanks

In order to not be overwhelmed by my calendar, I tend to take one day at a time and just focus on the present, not be anxious about the future.  However, I looked at my calendar today and thought “Oh my goodness. I can’t believe it!  My wedding season begins next weekend!” It JUST hit […]

Vincent, I just want to take a moment today to write all this things that I love about you.    Thankfully, I get one day a year to be ridiculous mushy on the internet. Yay for Valentine’s Day!  The fact that I’ve loved you for nearly 10 years now is absolutely incredible and so rare. […]

It’s finally December, my favorite month of the year!  It’s the month of Christmas, my birthday, and the month that leads to the New Year!  I am so excited to decorate this year at our new Chicago home and to feel like we’re really starting to settle in. Something I’ve started doing this year was saving my […]

Moving to Chicago was many things: scary, unbelievable, challenging, stressful, but above all EXCITING!  I feel as though everyone dreams of moving from a small town to a big city to make a name for themselves, to experience new things, and to have amazing adventures.  But I actually get to do this? Am I really doing […]

While visiting in France this summer, I was privileged with the opportunity to capture an special time in my cousin Maxime’s life.  Maxime was christened in Bretagne at one of the local Catholic churches and I was so excited that the family asked me to take photographs at the ceremony.  This was unlike anything I’ve […]

Payne’s Prairie is one of the largest and coolest state parks I’ve ever been to in Florida.  It’s seriously… HUGE!  This unique park is located in Micanopy, Florida and is filled with beautiful landscape, places for camping and a picnic, fishing, nature trails, and wildlife! My husband, my friend Teri, and I went exploring on […]

My gorgeous mother had the opportunity to come spend an entire week with me in Florida and I soaked up every minute of it! One day we went exploring around Gainesville seeing new shops, restaurants, and eating our weight in Gigi’s cupcakes, then the next day we had a pamper day where we got our […]

Only a few days remain before I have to move to Gainesville, FL. When I first arrived in Knoxville I was 5 hours away from family, didn’t know anyone, starting at a new school, and creating a new business.  It was overwhelming but after the first few months Knoxville quickly became my new home.  I […]

After 6 long years, switching majors 4 times, and attending 3 different schools I finally GRADUATED!!!! For those wondering, I graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics.  Yes, economics…(weird I know) who would have thought!  Funny enough- I would have never imagined myself as an economics major, but […]
