Laughter. Such a simple but powerful thing. I LOVE to laugh. When I stop and think about it- I crave laughter. I don't miss an episode of Saturday Night Live, my favorite celebrities are funny people like Jimmy Fallon and Ellen, my best friends are super funny people, and my kids are freaking hilarious. There are a million gorgeous photos from this engagement session- but I was so drawn to the laughter. These two are perfect together and I can't wait for their wedding in a few months ❤️ @lexbarra

I started shooting weddings when she was 4 years old. She's watched me from the 'sidelines' for almost 10 years now. She's creative and fun and is a hopeless romantic just like me. Last week, my daughter Sophie shot her first wedding as my sidekick. Will this be her career? Who knows? But I'm encouraging her to learn her stuff so it can be a great side hustle through college. I handed her the invitation and asked her to go take a shot of it. I look over to see her layering it on a log table by a window- complete with the bouquet she grabbed. This was her first shot out of her camera at her first ever wedding. I think she's got this. So proud of her:)

"The time to build a network is always before you need one." - Douglas Conant. It's hard to believe my friendship with these girls is going on 9-10 years. All incredible photographers and business owners on their own- their friendship in the industry and life has only made me better. These girls, and a few others like @kendrapencephotography, are major reasons why I can keep going after 10 years. So thankful for women who can relate, but most importantly, love me and embrace me for all my wins and all my weaknesses. Feeling very grateful for them all today❤️

Fourteen💛. Happy birthday to the girl who makes me smile every single day. Always the life of the party, always smiling, always singing 🙄, dancing🙄, and telling awful jokes. But at the same time...one of the most generous and thoughtful people I know. You are the sweetest big sister, an incredible daughter, a sweet friend, a hopeless romantic, such a sweet buddy to all of your little admirers, and a strong follower of Christ. I love you girl and you will forever be (along with your brother) my biggest blessing and my favorite thing💛. Happy birthday Sophie Claire:) we'll party after my wedding tonight 💛

Just got home from one of the most amazing weeks with my girl and her best friend (who is like a daughter to me). I won't be able to walk normal for a few days- but I wouldn't trade all this week for the world. We laughed...like a lot. We cried a little (mostly me on any ride...#iliketheshows). We spent time with people we love! But mostly- we made some amazing memories at an incredible place:). So glad we did it❤️ love you @maddie.m_10 and @sophie.kamienski! Thank you for an amazing week:) #disney

It's official. I need a drone like yesterday. Absolutely love this shot we got on the black sand beaches of Iceland with @malochmedia's drone❤️ @swlodyka and Alex were troopers to lay down in the sand while we battled the drone against the wind. I'll be editing this wedding in the next few days- so be prepared for Iceland wedding overkill. #icelandwedding#droneshot#blacksand

I am a hopeless romantic. I can't help it. I still watch teenage love movies weekly. I have three different love playlists on my phone (country, pop, and old school). I pray every day my kids find 'the one' and that I love them too. So I definitely think I'm so lucky to be in a profession where my job is all about love❤️. Like these two high school sweethearts still crazy in love. It's the best❤️
