Megan and Kane's Wedding, part 1


Hey everybody!

I'm not kidding, at the end of this wedding the bride and groom jumped in the swimming pool! Did I just spoil a surprise? You'll have to come back and see more pics because today is the first half of Megan and Kane's wedding in Russellville, Arkansas.



Yep... they're watching how to tie a bowtie on youtube.

For some reason, I just LOVE first meeting photos!






Talk to you soon,

Published in the iBook store, y'all!! Yay!

Hey everybody!

I have some super exciting news: I have a book published in the iBooks store! Yay! One of my New Year's resolutions was to write some stuff down... and you know me and my ny resolutions. :)

My first book is something I know a lot about: Blogging For Photographers

Isn't that totally fitting? Anyway... I don't have a link (I'm not sure how to find it, but if I do I'll post it) - just search "blogging for photographers" in the iBooks store and mine is the only one. You should buy it! :)
***EDITED TO ADD LINK (THANKS ADAM!): http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/blogging-for-photographers/id473906232?mt=11***

Here's my cute little cover I made:

Carnall Hall Wedding Details of Jonna and Ryan

Hey everybody!

When it comes to wedding details, if you have a fabulous wedding guru as a sister, I'd say use her. Just like Jonna did! Jonna is the sister of one of our very best friends, Jenessa Bailey, so we knew the wedding was going to be faaaaaabulous! And it was! From individual wedding cakes (seriously! not kidding!) from Shelby Lynn's Cake Shoppe, to old vintage keys adorning the menus, there was eye candy all around!

Garvan Gardens Anthony Chapel Wedding and Reception of Stephanie and Evan

Hey friends!

Here is a super cute Hot Springs wedding! Stephanie and Evan live in California now but wanted all their friends and family to be at the wedding so the parents helped with a lot of the planning, and they definitely did an awesome job! We met at Stephanie's brother's lake house for some getting ready shots and then the bride and groom's first meeting. The lake was gorgeous and made for a great first meeting. Then it was off to the Anthony Chapel at Garvin Woodland Gardens. The ceremony and reception were gorgeous and everyone throughout the day was so sweet!

Check out their wedding story...
