Meet the Schatzlein family. Liz and her husband Mike got in touch with me back in March to see if I could come to the Grove Park in July for their family reunion. “Of course,” I said. And so I did. When I got there, I immediately noticed a large family coordinated really well – and naturally, that was them. Liz and Mike are from Nashville, but their kids Tricia, Derek and Michael are scattered around the US with their families. I’m so glad they got together here in Asheville and gave me the honor of being their photographer!
Y’all, I am so excited to share this lovely shoot today! I had so much fun with Matt and Morgan last Sunday at the Botanical Gardens, and I’m sure you’ll agree that they look pretty cute together. 🙂
Meet Kenny and Callie – one of the sweetest couples I’ve worked with. Kenny contacted me a couple weeks ago, telling me that he was coming to NC and wanted to propose to his girlfriend. Could I possibly shoot his proposal? It was a tight time frame, as he was planning to pop the question in less than a week. But I looked at my calendar, did some finagling, and said yes.
And boy, am I glad I did.
Hey guys! Last weekend I had the honor of shooting Ashleigh and David’s wedding with my friend Amy, and it was a blast! Ashleigh was so enthusiastic and excited to get married, and David was her perfect mate. 🙂 They had the sweetest wedding!
I’m not sure how I end up with so many sweet, fun couples. John and Jessica were certainly no exception! From the start, this couple was enthusiastic, adventuresome, joyful, and all-in-all, people you genuinely enjoy being with.
John and Jessica are originally from Arizona where they met in MIDDLE SCHOOL! They were friends all through school (they have a picture of them together at John’s prom!) but only started dating a year ago! Now they live here in North Carolina.
Every time I photograph my cousins, they get a little easier. I get a few more smiles, more faces looking at the camera. Perhaps it’s because they’re getting older. Could be they’re getting used to me. Whatever it is, this is definitely our best shoot yet!
I’ve been taking pictures of this family for maybe five years – longer than I’ve been in business! I’m amazed my aunt even keeps the old pictures on account of how awful they are, but it’s cool to see how they and I have improved. And grown! Definitely grown. Over the past five years, they’ve grown from a family of seven to a family of ten.
Meet Hannah and Michael: possibly the cutest newlywed couple ever.
My heart smiled when I heard their story – they met over fifteen years ago as kids in Hannah’s mom’s homeschool choir. “Even then, I noticed him,” said Hannah. They started dating when she was sixteen. A few years passed. Everyone held their breaths, waiting. And then, last summer, Michael popped the question.
Someone once told me that he never realized growing up that his mom worked two jobs; she’d go to work and then come home, get dinner, do laundry, and clean. I didn’t realize it either, but you didn’t work two jobs.
It was more like six.
It’s been a little over a year since we became best friends, and I’m still a little overwhelmed and perplexed as to why God would give me such a wonderful person as a best friend.
I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone quite like you. You are such an amazing person. You’re always encouraging me, through all my hare-brained ideas. You’re so talented, but you always strive to grow your gifts. You read long emails of all my rambles and crazy dreams. You listen over the phone at the end of the day, comforting me when life gets too hard.
