My Photo
I find it hard to believe that seven years have passed since I made the decision to pursue my dream of becoming a photographer. Even though it has been challenging, I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I have had some amazing clients to photograph, and have made some lifelong friends. When the photos session is over, I can't wait to get home and upload the photos to see what I was able to capture. I love the finished product. A few years ago, I began blogging but have fallen behind in this area. I promise I will try to dedicate more time to my blog, so others can get to know the wonderful clients I am photographing. Many of them have interesting stories to tell. I also think it is interesting to see how couples met, and of their plans for the future. I am available most days to photograph you and your loved ones. Message or call for an appointment. View more on my website at

Halee & Brandon

Halee and Brandon met as many other couples do, through friends. They were introduced one night while hanging out with friends in McDonald's parking lot. Halee attended East Burke High while Brandon attended Freedom High (school rivals). Prior to their dating, Brandon had plans to join the AirForce, but later decided not to join. They began dating, and have been together for four years. On Christmas Eve 2008, Brandon asked Halee to be his bride. They are currently busy making plans for the wedding to be held October 17 at the McDowell House.

I recently met with them to take engagement photos. In most situations, the guys reluctantly take photos, lol. Halee felt Brandon would be no different. However, Brandon never complained one time, and was willing to do whatever was asked of him (including changing clothes three times). He also helped babysit Halee's puppy, Jaxon, which was included in some of the pictures. We took pictures for nearly three hours. When we were packing up to leave, I found out that Brandon had worked the night before, and had only slept a few hours that day. He also had not eaten dinner. I could not believe he had been such a good sport, while also being sleepy and hungry, lol! Thanks Brandon for being so patient during our photo session.

I am excited to be given the opportunity to photograph their wedding day. Halee and I also have a bridal session scheduled in September. I can't wait to see her in her wedding gown. She is going to be such a beautiful bride.
