Hi new friend!
To be honest, I wish so badly I could invite you into my home and we could sit over steaming mugs of hot coffee or earl grey tea and get to know each other and talk through wedding plans together! Oh how I know exactly what stage of life you’re in, because I was just there, and let me say this: Marriage gets better every single DAY!! Dating your best friend for the rest of your life!? Ahh! There is nothing better!
Instead of trying to tell you who I am…let me just tell you a story, because after all…we all have one, and documenting them is my greatest passion.
Accompanied by my favorite Restoration Hardware chunky knit blanket and a warm cinnamon Americano, my mornings typically start early. I’ll make a quick breakfast and kiss my husband as he runs out the door to work, and then I’ll curl up with my worn leather bound journal and let my heart spill onto the page. Going to work means living out my biggest dream come true: because being a wedding photographer is an every day privilege! I get to spend hours capturing the most exciting time in a bride’s life and the beaming smiles as a couple shares in their first moments as husband and wife. I’m smitten with my husband, and our darling 1920 something house. I spend far too much time on the Anthropologie website and Pinterest for inspiration. ;)
I am so blessed to do life alongside my very favorite people, and document love stories with someone who means the universe to me—my mom. She has walked through every stage of life with me, from traveling across the country to late night road trips, we’ve shared in the journey of Lifesong Photography since the spring of 2010. She has shared in my accomplishments and chased my dreams right beside me, she has been my biggest encourager and lifted me up yet pushed me to be better and better…
That’s why I believe that surrounding yourself with people who share in your dreams and desires is so incredibly important. I also believe in making smoothies their own food group. I believe in making life an adventure, and believe that every experience has a purpose. I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe that life is best spent when it’s poured out for others. I believe there is true beauty in authenticity, and Pinterest is an inspiration, not a distraction ;) I wear leggings almost every day and wish Lucky Brand and Free People were my personal designers. I could eat and smell everything cinnamon and I believe that anything can be made a reason to celebrate…and weddings are one of the very sweetest ways!
I am SO excited for you and for this stage of life you’re in…let’s plan a real coffee date and dream about your wedding, house décor, yummy meals and everything this new season of life holds for you!
