I have known Becky since we were 4 years old. To say that I was honored to take her engagement pictures is an understatement! Life is so full circle and I am so excited for her and Matt’s future together! Becky and Matt, you two are an amazing couple and I had so much fun taking these pictures for you guys. I cannot wait to celebrate your love in October!
Paris has always been on my list of places that I wanted to visit, but a part of me always wanted to save it until I could come with my husband. The city of love... there's just nothing like it! It completely lived up to all of my expectations and I was so lucky to walk the cobblestone streets hand in hand with the one that I love!
As a photographer, I always get bummed that there are not many photos of us together on our vacations because not many random bystanders know how to handle my DSLR camera. We always end up with blurry and out of focus pictures, so we resort to the iPhone and hope that we are in the frame! My husband and I hadn't had pictures taken of us together since our wedding two years ago, so I started thinking about doing an anniversary session and also incorporate it with our vacation. I got on Google and Instagram and started doing some research about photographers in Paris. I came across Ian Holmes' website, and knew that I wanted him to take our pictures! His photos looked so effortless and I loved his aesthetic.
We met Ian at the Torcadéro early one morning and it was an instant connection! He was kind, sarcastic, and made us feel calm in front of the camera. We really enjoyed our morning spent with him and truly felt like we were the only ones in Paris that morning. It was such a beautiful feeling waking up before everyone else did and having the city to yourself!
We will cherish these pictures for many years to come! Thanks again, Ian! (If you guys are ever in Paris, please reach out to him- he's amazing!)
And to my wonderful husband...I know that you'd rather be hiking mountains and going mountain bike riding, but I appreciate you frolicking around the streets of France with me and eating our weight in croissants. The last 2.5 years with you have been such a wonderful journey and I am grateful to do life with you by my side! I love you!

Hello all! I hope you're having a great day so far! If not, just scroll down and these pictures will instantly put you in a better mood! Is it just me or does anyone else want to hug their significant other and tell them how much you love them after seeing engagement pictures? It gets me every time. I think I had a permanent smile on my face when editing these pictures of Kia and Rhett. They were such a fantastic couple and so easy to photograph! They were willing to do anything to get great pictures and I'm so glad that they had that attitude (even when I asked them to walk through tall grass after Kia told me how afraid of snakes she was). Kia, you're so brave! Congratulations to Kia and Rhett and I wish you all of the love in the world!
Have I told you before that I have BEAUTIFUL clients? Yes? Well, I will say it again. I have beautiful, kind, and precious clients! In honor of these two tying the knot six months from now, I wanted to share their session for you all to see! P.S. Brace yourselves for a handsome puppy, a gorgeous tulle skirt, and two lovebirds.
I remember the first time that I heard about Andrew. Meg came to work one day and was acting SO different. She always has a smile on her face, but this was a very different smile. I finally said, "Okay, spill! What is going on?!" From that day on, Meg's life was forever changed. Every time she spoke of Andrew, she spoke of him in the highest regard. I knew that he was something very special from the beginning. He loves Meg the way a man should love a woman, pursues her each and everyday, is very intentional, and is the perfect companion for her! Meg and Andrew, I loved getting to witness your love story write itself for the last few years and could not be more excited for your future together! I pray that you always remember to dance with one another, hold each other close, and give Huxley an infinite amount of kisses.
Lastly, I think we can all agree that we are all ready ready for these two to have the most gorgeous babies. Can I get an amen? :)
