TAYLOR'S THE ENERGETIC ONE,

ALI'S USUALLY CALM & SMILING.

LIly's Smiley & UNBELIEVABLY CUTE.

luna's *not smiley* but still unbelievably cute.

 

 

 

A L I  (me) is calm, smiley, and quirky. I love the outdoors, World Market, books, and popcorn (always!).

I'm a new momma, cat lover, entrepreneur, eccentric detail lover, and an educator. I actually have my teaching degree!

I've been collecting images since I was a little girl. Disposable cameras, digital cameras, and now, fancy cameras. 

As a photographer, I obviously LOVE photography and running this business. It's my dream job through and through.

 

T A Y L O R  is really good at everything he does. For real, I don't know how he does it! 

Cooking, music, installing things in our house, fixing computers, you name it.

He's also a mastermind at piano, audio/recording, and composing music.

He's the manliest softy with an equal love for meat, beer, sports, adventure, video games & cooking, jazz music, cute babies, and cats.

 

T O G E T H E R  we had a backyard Madison, Wisconsin wedding with gardens, tall pines, and waterfalls.

We're laughing at our baby/cat 75% of the time.

We love trying out new restaurants and secretly wish our hobby was working out rather than eating. Ha! 

We are advocates of marriage, good food, exploring new places, & laughter. 

We believe our purpose is to spread God's love + nothing matches that purpose for us.

MY WHY AS A PHOTOGRAPHER: 

 

My mom had been battling cancer throughout our engagement.

Two weeks before our wedding, she had brain surgery and doctors told her she was most likely not going to make it to our wedding. 

BUT, she was determined + able to be at our wedding, standing and present. She passed away two months later. 

My "why" as a photographer is magnified whenever I look at my pictures with her on our wedding day. 

Photos are lasting memories and I'm so, so grateful for them!

 

 

Here are some snapshots of OUR wedding. Thanks to  Amanda Snyder for the photos we'll cherish forever!
