Independently, Jackie and Tim have lived extraordinary lives. Between the two of them, they have joined the Peace Corps, moved across the US, and done some really […]

I know we think we know where to buy wedding dresses–we look for the big stores with the billowy white gowns all in a row. That’s one place to start. However, if you are looking for something a little more boutique and less mainstream, it might not hurt to look outside the big box stores. […]

When we talk wedding planning, one topic that is left out is how to personalize your wedding. I’m not just talking monograms here; I mean how can someone infuse their personality in their day? Where would someone even start? In my decade in the industry, I have seen five areas where it is easiest to […]

It’s November, huh? I guess I better set some goals. I know I’ve written about this a hundred times, but a little repetition in this arena never hurts. So, what are my November goals? BLOG AGAIN: I know, I know…I’ve also written *this* goal like every month. This time, it’s for real, though. My blogging […]

I get asked the question all the time: What does it mean for you to be a hybrid photographer? It’s a fair question that comes with some preconceived notions and assumptions. I would like to clear a few of those up right now, if I may… SO…WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A HYBRID PHOTOGRAPHER? […]

Today I turn 40. I’m totally OK with that. For sure. No, really. I am not freaking about it (or at least not as much as I was bugged out by turning 35. That was a hard one). If there is any qualms about rolling the odometer over into the next decade, it’s only because […]
