You probably know he’s my high school sweetheart, and now we’re engaged. And you might know he’s my second shooter, too! But what exactly does he do around here? Because he […]

    Eight Years Together – Letters to Each Other

    May 16, 2019

    AJ, Each year I think we have hit our ceiling and our relationship can’t grow anymore than it has. I think I was looking at engagement as the peak of the mountain where we’d stay forever. But the truth is the mountain probably doesn’t have a peak. It has little flat parts where we get […]

    Our Engagement Session: What We Wore and Why

    Apr 30, 2019

    Our Engagement Session: What We Wore and Why Our engagement session is one of those things that I think back on two weeks later and think…did that really happen?? The trip to DC was such a blast – and short and sweet! So sometimes I forget we even had an engagement session at all! If […]

    A letter to Holly on her birthday

    Mar 8, 2019

    Holly, I wrote one of these last year, because it was something new that we were doing together, but this year feels different. I feel at a loss. I don’t even know where to start. I’ll start where I admire you most; your consistent, personal growth in a field that requires vulnerability. The perception of your […]

    A Letter to AJ on his Birthday (from Holly)

    Sep 6, 2018

    AJ, This will be the eighth birthday of yours that I get to celebrate with you. Sometimes I like to put myself back in my 16 year old shoes, meeting you for the first time and falling head over heels for you. The night that we first hung out, I wrote in my diary all […]
