Lindsay and Adam

What an amazing wedding and family. We had such a blast with you guys! Thanks so much for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of your special day!

wedding planner: Carol Crabbe
caterer: B&A Warehouse
band: Act of Congress

Adam's ring was inscripted with the words "of course", because that's exactly what Lindsay told him when he asked her to marry him.

Lindsay seeing herself for the first time after donning her dress and veil.

Lindsay and Adam chose to see each other for pictures before the ceremony lending us great light and tons of time for us to spend with them.

Amazing Details!

See all of their wedding day images in The Gallery. Use Adam's last name as the access code!

New Website

news news news news news news news news news news

I'm so excited to announce the launch of my new website. I've had the current one for several years now and it was definitely time for a face lift.

A few things I'm excited about:
*I love the splash page--that's the first page you'll see where you have a choice where to go...the blog, the website or to the client proofing area.
*I love how the images are jinormous...okay, that may not be a real word, but the images are huge!!
*I love how I have several galleries now: click on the galleries link and check that out! I still have a general wedding gallery and featured wedding, but I also have an engagement gallery now! cool uh!
*I love the music! It's modern and fresh just like I hope my website to be.
*I love my products section. Since sooooo many of my clients are out of town, now you have a chance to see my albums and products up close and personal.
*I love the blue. Everything coordinates now with my brand and I love that!
*I love the 'about' page. I wasn't sure about it at first...'cause it's kinda out there, but it's grown on me. It's really who I am and who we are.

You can check out the new site at Because the images are bigger, it takes a few extra seconds to load, but I'd love to know what you think!
