Matt + Alyssa are one of those couples who are a little quiet but their love for each other radiates from their faces. They are so sweet and fun and just absolutely in love with each other. Their joy was so contagious! Plus, there were COWS and hay bales and a gorgeous sunset and did I mention cows?! When I got into the car that night my heart was just so full!

So about a month ago I participated in a traveling Bridal show in Abingdon, VA. The plan was for brides to travel to three different wedding venues in the area so they could tour the venues and meet a handful of wedding venders (florists, caterers, photographers, etc) at each stop.

I guess I’m just bad at the “making time for blogging” thing. Anyway, so starting today my goal is to blog once or twice […]

About a month ago my brother told me that one of his closest friends, Heath, was planning to propose to his girlfriend, Elizabeth (EJ to her friends and family).  I had known Heath since we were all just kids so I was super excited! Will asked me to secretly photograph it while he helped set […]
