I just love December weddings!  And our first wedding of the month, December 5th, 2020 did not disappoint!  It was the most beautiful day to celebrate Devan and Keith’s wedding day.  This wonderful couple gracefully navigated many obstacles in their wedding planning thanks to the pandemic, including having to decrease their guest count substantially to […]

The cool, quiet, darkness of a theatre has always been a magical place to me.  Endless possibilities lingering just beyond the dusty velvet curtains.  The smell of sawdust and paint from freshly crafted sets and the tang of hairspray drifting from the dressing room.  The heavy, satisfying weight of a brand new script in hand.  […]

Jessica and Michael are one of our sweet 2021 wedding couples.  They came for a visit to the Golden Horseshoe Inn to do their big wedding planning meeting with us, and arranged to have some engagement photos taken afterwards!  Engagement photos are so much fun for me to shoot, especially because my schedule rarely allows […]
