Confession time: when I first started this business, I knew absolutely nothing. Not a super shocking revelation, I know. Because who really knows a lot when you first start something? But literally, I knew nothing. Well except for two things. I knew that I loved photography, that I found it challenging and rewarding, and it […]

Happy Thursday, friends! Is it just me, or does Thursday have this magical Christmas Eve, night-before-Friday kinda feeling? It’s probably one of my favorite days of the week. So what better way to celebrate than with the next installment of our engagement session series?! Today’s all about the fellas. We’ve already talked about ways to […]

Happy Tuesday, lovelies! I’m so glad to be back after the weekend and am ready to continue with our engagement session series!

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope that you’re this first month of 2017 with a little bit of leftover holiday magic 🙂 If you’re reading this, there’s a pretty good chance that your holidays were extra magical.

Never in a million, billion years did I think that I would make it to the place where another photographer would be coming to me for mentorship. I feel like mentorship is an exclusive land reserved for those who have “made it”. And I definitely don’t feel like I’m anywhere near “made it”. Basically, if “made it” […]

“I’m just going to warn you, I’m not very comfortable in front of a camera. I have no idea what to do.” I hear this exact phrase almost every single time I meet a new client. If you are someone that feels this way, then today’s post is for you. Because you don’t need to […]

Hi beauts, Chelcie here:) Lately, our news feeds have been filled to the brim with engagement announcements and, as enthusiasts of all things lovey and gushy, we couldn’t be more thrilled. But when we’ve talked to our recently engaged friends, they’ve been stressed about the same thing: wedding planning. Let’s be honest–wedding planning is a […]
