We started out in a gorgeous weed-filled pasture, then moved down the road to our friend’s home. He… Read more »

it’s wedding season…

And I’m elbow deep in it! Almost half the year has gone by… where have I been? Hm… maybe traveling everywhere from Indianappolis to the Mobile Bay, and having a blast doing the most fun job, ever! I know it’s so hard to wait the normal 4 to 6 weeks to get your wedding photos back… so my new goal is to try to post at least a couple sneak peeks after each wedding.
