I am not a writer. I’m a photographer. I tell stories and give information through images, not words.
So when I finally decided to launch this blog, I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do.  I knew that everyone was blogging these days and figured, well if everyone is doing it then I should too.

There are SO many blogs, and so little time.  Why would anyone want to read my blog? What do I  have to say that hasn’t been said already?  Will anyone even care about what this blog will have to offer?

Well, that’s a great question….

So I asked myself, (yes, yes I do talk to myself, thank you) why am I doing this? I know Im doing this because I have been told by society that this is what I need to do. As a photographer you blog your work. I get that. Luckily for me, and possibly for you, : ) most of my posts will be photos. Weddings, couples, high school seniors, and the occasional adoring photo of my dog of course. But as I thought deeper into what I wanted to get out of having a blog, I decided I wanted to recognize who my readers will be and what they would want to get out of my blog.

With that being said, welcome to my new blog! I may not be a writer, but I do care about people and encouraging those I come in contact with. I care about my clients, current and future.  I love weddings. I love couples who are over the top with excitement about sharing a life together. My blog is an extension of this.   Here is a list of topics/focus points you will expect to find here on my blog:
