That one snowy day…

I hate snow. I hate winer. I hate being cold. Don’t get me wrong though. I like snow on the first day it falls. It’s romantic and cozy. I hate it the day after though. I hate the cold wind, shoveling out everything, the wet slush, putting on billions of layers…the after math of it […]

Zach + Tami Elopement: 48 Fields

I looooove intimate, small weddings. There’s something so sweet about it being just the two of you that celebrates your love together. It’s like a romantic secret only the two of you know. I’m not a person that loves to be up in front of a ton of people. In fact, any time I have […]
