You're all my heart ever talks about. ♡ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These law-school sweethearts met sitting in the same section and became close one summer through their shared love of helping others – mentoring foreign law students and helping them get acclimated. While it was clear that they liked each other, it wasn't until a trip to Vegas with a friend that sparks flew and their connection became undeniable. They started the trip as friends, came back a couple! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 D4 24-70mm 2.8
Who else struggles balancing the many hats required running business and a home? 🤪 If I could go back in time and do one thing differently in my first few years of my business it would be: Outsource sooner that I felt ready to. I’m excited to have JUST uploaded a new video and blog post diving into the topic of outsourcing: ✖️Why it’s important ✖️ Questions to help you decide WHEN & WHAT to outsource ✖️ And 5 things I outsource in my own biz + why! Link in bio! :)
Rather than repeating the typical wedding poses I like to say something like “Just walk my way and... ‘get your FLIRT on’” Then I just capture what happens next. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For me, directing > posing every time! 🎬🔥💥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who agrees?
I love you + naps ♡ #NationalNappingDay

If you could hop on a plane tomorrow and go ANYWHERE in the world, where would you adventure to? ✈️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some friends recently shared that they made a “before kids” list, and I loved the idea! It inspired Jayse & me to start putting together a list of the places we'd love to travel as ‘just the two of us’ before starting a family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A few places high on our list: 👰🏼❤️🤵🏻 Greece - Santorini! 🐘 Thailand 🦘 Australia ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I’d love some more inspo! What’s one place that’s topping your travel bucket list?
When I see the look Rana gives her groom in this photo, I imagine she's thinking: That's my NEW husband!

Love is the closest thing we have to magic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cupid definitely worked her magic on these two New York lovers! Amanda and Blake met online through OkCupid, and after hitting it off over text, couldn't wait to meet in person for a drink (or many!) Instantly taken with each other, and not wanting the night to end, they spent the evening bar hopping and getting to know each other more. Blake even knew of a secret rooftop garden. They snuck up and shared their romantic first kiss. ♡ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since their romance first sparked in the city, it was only fitting we kick off their engagement shoot the same way – with good drinks, and fun times exploring downtown! I had such a blast with these two!! And I can't wait to capture them getting MARRIED next month at the beautiful @SpringsPreserve! #blamandagetwed ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 D4 85mm 1.4
