I was checking my email the other day and I stumbled upon what I thought was spam mail… in fact it wasn’t spam mail at all. I was nominated as one of the top 30 wedding photographers in the Kansas City Area by Wedding Rule. I couldn’t believe it! As I was thinking about it as we recently relocated back from Kansas City to the Western Suburbs of Chicago I had a good chuckle.

Now as we all know in the Covid world- Micro Weddings and Elopements are on the uptick. Weddings are constantly changing and these micro weddings and elopements are so much fun to capture.

When I was pregnant with my daughter photos were at the top of my list of things I wanted to have captured once she arrived. I had spent the better part of a few weeks hunting down the perfect photographer for our session and one of my requirements was that they come to my home.
