Cheers to new adventures: Washington, DC bound

Here’s the thing, I’m moving! All of my life, I knew that I would be a wanderer of some sort and never really saw myself staying in Indiana forever. Will it always be my home? Of course. Will I be back and forth often? Absolutely. However, I’m on to new horizons and FINALLY get to be with my other half, Neil, after months of long distance.

Things happened quickly, as this decision to make the move and head for new adventures happened in a weeks time. Neil got a call that gave him an opportunity of a lifetime and plainly an opportunity we just couldn’t pass up. So, on he went to the Nations Capital as I stayed behind to finish up a very busy photography season.

So what’s the deal? These last few months have been filled with a lot of change, some travel and a lot of planning! I quit my day job in August to focus on photography and what an incredible few months it has been! The clients/ friends I work with are beautiful humans. I’ve shot a wedding almost every weekend since May with some of the most talented photographers, Sherri and Cait, y’all rock! I’ve been given multiple chances to perfect my child whisperer skills with the many family sessions this summer and into this fall. And what’s up high school seniors, so much inspiration comes from them and their sessions! When I wasn’t shooting, I visited DC  a hand full of times to check out the new digs and to spend some time with Neil. I have to admit, I really love the place.

What now? The plan is to finish strong through the month of October. Booking sessions up until the first week of November. And then, because as if moving isn’t one big adventure in itself, I’m taking off with a really great friend of mine to head out west for one epic road trip! We will be photographing along the way.  Spending a lot of time in Colorado, California, Arizona and New Mexico to name a few.

As of now, my plan is to travel back and forth occasionally. Most likely for holidays, long weekends and I’ve already booked a few weddings for next summer. My hope is to schedule some sessions during this time, but I also know that I would like to use any time back mostly with family and friends. Basically what I’m saying is, Indiana you haven’t seen the last of me yet!

So, tell all of your friends in the lovely Washington, DC that I’m coming to conquer that amazing place. Feel free to connect me with any rad folks there considering I will technically only know three people when I first get there. And know that things are about to get really good this coming year!

Cheers to the new adventures!

“Married life is fantastic. I highly recommend it” -Mrs. Claxton

Well these two were incredible and their venue, to die for! I highly underestimated the inspiration and all of the goodness Billie Creek Village had to offer during my elementary school field trip days. The fact is, it’s an AH MAZE ING place, a photographers dream!

Meet the newly Mr. and Mrs. Claxton! I first met them literally on their wedding day, but the love that flowed through them and the fun spirit of the day had myself and my team feeling like we had known them forever! Fun fact shout out to Teresa’s sister, Laura, who gets most of the credit for this photography journey I’m on and connecting me with so many people including Teresa!

Below is a preview of their day. Experience for yourself all of the love and all of the happy giddiness we all got to feel on their special day!

Hope + Casey got hitched!

Hello all! Now before you give me any grief I know it has been a seriously long time since my last post, but I promise this one will be filled with magic. Speaking of magic, my summer has been consumed by it. With one love story after the next. Each wedding I photograph brings in the most beautiful human beings to walk this earth and some seriously rad people to spend a day with. The bridal parties have been amazingly fun and the bride and grooms, to die for.

Meet the newly Mr. and Mrs. Coons. Their wedding was incredibly beautiful and those red lips, you go Hope do your thang! With all weddings the editing process allows me to reminisce the day again, and my goodness this wedding was filled with all of the good kind of emotions. No, literally I wanted to cry all over myself looking at some of these moments again. See for yourself!
