One of the most fun, but also most difficult parts of moving is making new friends. As a true introvert, making friends is HARD. I do not like putting myself out there and doing the “small talk” thing. But it’s just something that has to happen to meet new people! But then, when you meet…

In addition to wedding day coverage, I offer beautiful, timeless wedding albums. Marcus & Samantha chose to invest in a beautiful, linen album of their gorgeous preppy wedding day last summer.

We all know how crazy this weather has been. Spring days, then winter days, then back to spring and summer-like temperatures, and then back to snow the next day. It’s all over the place! I had the AC on in the car just two days ago and now I look out my window to see…

Nestled in the outskirts of Bardstown, KY, surrounded by rolling hills is the Willett Distillery. It’s a quaint bourbon distillery with decades of history.

Moving to Louisville has had its challenges, but it’s also been incredibly rewarding. And one of the rewards is getting to meet new people. Going to college was kind of like this, opening up a whole new world of people with different worldviews. And again, I get to experience that by moving to a new…
