Still in bed, sipping away on a delightful cup of coffee thinking how blessed we are to call this work.
We have worked so hard, put our faith in God and we have so many people who support us and believe in us.
This is so much more then just a job to us.
Thank you seems to fall so short on a proper recognition on how much you do for us!
Ever feel this way? Overwhelmed by gratitude ? Name one thing below your grateful for today 🖤
A few months ago my friend @photographybyangelatucker asked if I wanted to come with her to Bald Head Island for one of her engagement sessions. It wasn’t even a question, of courseeee I wanted to go. It was so much fun shooting this beautiful couple on this absolutely stunningggg beach.
Got to do anything for the shot. Standing in freezing cold water in Big Sur, laying in the mud, climb a tree, play with fire (check last slide of me playing with fire), just some of the things I’ll do for you and the shot. #kellybalchphoto
At @katinicoleworkshops in Joshua Tree this summer, @willkhouryphotography challenged us to take 3 photos of a couple within a short period of time. Just 3. I really loved this challenge cause it reminded me to slow down and to breathe and to just let the couple be themselves in their space. I just love this.
These two are getting married today — cue the happy tears 😭

“Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible – it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.”

as big of a fan of these two as they are of Bulldogs hockey 🐶💕 // starting monday morning, i will be hiking the wonderland trail in washington. it is a 93 mile loop around mount rainier. so, i will not have cell service starting august 19th until the 29th. just in case anyone is wondering why i won’t be responding to emails, texts, or DM’s! see y’all later!
This gorgeous couple wrote each other letters and read them on their wedding day. If you look closely at the groom’s letter, you can see it’s addressed to his “Dear Tatero.” I wish I could say I stayed strong while I worked this wedding but, like I always do, I cried my eyes out. Love is so beautiful to be near, so beautiful to work around, so beautiful to see. Their love story, especially, was wonderful. My job is love stories - how can anyone call this work? #takehertochurch .

Congratulations to Frank and Hannah on their engagement! We had such a wonderful time with these two. They most definitely came dressed for the part and boy did they look good! We can’t wait to share more from this session. Some of our absolute favorite photos to date.

With tears and eyes of hopelessness she said to me, “What if I’m THAT person that doesn’t get to see hope restored in my life? Or what if the reason why I can’t say yes to God is because I’m afraid that it’s real and that it will change me?” I wanted her so badly to see what I saw; worth, love, hope, and restoration for her life. But she was the outcast in her family. She was abused and manipulated- broken down to “no repair.” I grabbed her hand and said “No matter what you may feel or think right now- it doesn’t change how God sees you. He has never stopped loving you. He has never stopped chasing you. He has never once looked at you any different than who He created YOU to be.
The fear of change is real, especially when you’re broken and hurting. It’s real because you know change involves pain, and it’s painful to realize what you’ve missed out on all these years. The pain of regret. The pain of looking into your heart and facing the real you. After all, you may have survived up to this point by shutting it off and being numb, right?
Maybe you also have a friend in your life struggling to see any ounce of hope of restoration and healing for themselves. What I want to say to you is FIGHT FOR THEM.
Despite what THEY think or feel- you may be the only person who believes that they will see Joy again. God the Father fights for us. He lifts us up out of the pit of darkness when we have made our bed in hell. He breathes into our beings and all life is restored. So if He does that for us- then we can fight the good fight. Speak identity to their souls. Lay hands on them and pray His love would fill them. Remind them over and over they are worthy of His love. Tell them there is hope and joy waiting on the other side. Keep fighting for them until they believe it- because God surely is.

“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.”
Watching my absolute favorite movie of all time, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and feeling all the feelings. Literally on the verge of crying the whole time as I pray that the Lord allows another adventure soon.

Baby model status? Heck YES!!! He gets his good looks from his parents. 😉 Love you Elias & Erika! Thanks for bringing this little ham into the world. 💕
I can’t be the only one who has been buying alllll the new, warm, neutral colored fall clothing that’s showing up in stores as of late?! I for real have nothing in my closet for summer currently & I’m perfectly ok with that! I need cool air, fair fun, leaves changing, hoodies, & all the fall sessions I can book!!!
I may or may not be releasing my availability to do a limited amount of fall mini sessions in some of my favorite locations soon!!! Can’t freaking wait!!! 🍁📷👏🏼

These cutie patooties are celebrating their wedding today!
Wandering through the Scottish Highlands with Zack & Casey is something I’ll never forget. Some places are just special & Glen Coe is one of those spots. Can’t wait to head back & explore more of that amazing landscape! .

When you elope in Northern Ireland it’s like stepping into the pages of an actual fairy tale. If you want ancient castles, rugged coastlines & wild landscapes, this is the place for you! .

Chicken attack on the bride, I repeat chicken attack on the bride😅
Currently packing because tomorrow morning, Joe and I are going to VAIL, CO!!! We are shooting a wedding there on Saturday and I am beyond excited. I feel like I have been in such a work grind, but traveling to shoot somewhere beautiful and different is going to be so refreshing mentally and creatively. If you have any recommendations for places to shoot, eat, or drink in Denver/Vail, let me know in the comments!
