About the Lifestyle Blog

My day job is a wedding photographer, but my life consists of so much more than weddings. Here on my lifestyle blog, you’ll learn a lot more about me personally away from the camera. I love Jesus, being a wife, crafting, cooking, growing things, and so much more. I’ll document my heart here and I’m glad you’re along for the ride.

I’m hopping on the solar eclipse bandwagon with this post, but like so many others, I believe it was amazing! Let me preface this post by saying that this August 21, 2017 eclipse has been on our calendar since the day Matt decided to go to Southern. Literally, as soon as Matt got in to…

So I know it’s going to seem a little weird posting an image of the Eifel Tower on July 4th, but this picture and the trip that it came from changed my life. Ten years ago, I took a trip of a lifetime. I went on a two week tour of Europe starting in Rome and ending…

I grew up in a small town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. My family would often visit my grandparents who lived a few hours north in the Shenandoah Valley. And while my family traveled to different states each summer, that little area of Virginia was always my favorite. My grandparents inherited an…

This week was Matt and I’s half anniversary. And while we don’t celebrate it, I’m a dates girl and just love remembering little things like that. While thinking about being married for 4 and a half years, I started thinking about how long 4 years is. 4 years is the amount of time Matt and I…

We have so many significant dates (that…

Last month Matt and I traveled down to South Carolina to Kiawah Island for a little family vacation. We were able to meet up with Matt’s extended family to celebrate Matt’s grandfather’s 80th birthday. It’s so wonderful to get to see everyone. We always have a fun time and I love getting to spend time…

As I alluded to in my post yesterday, one of the biggest changes to my website (other than design) is the addition of Her Heart is Glad. In college, I blogged religiously.

For anyone who knows me, one of the first things they learn about me is that I have a major love affair with food, but more specifically sweets. I love my sweets: cookies, brownies, pies, cakes… you name it! And there is nothing better than nearing the end of a wedding reception and getting a…

One of my goals for 2017 is to write more “life update” posts on my blog. Our move to Kentucky has made many of our friendships long-distance, and it’s times like this I am thankful to live in a time with social media. I’m able to follow and communicate with dear friends all over from…
