What are some of your favorite activities or hobbies? Why do you love those things?

I love Just Dance. It’s fun to do with friends and mess around. And it’s a good workout.
What social media could you not live without and why? (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest)
Twitter. I spend all my time on it, and it’s how I hear about world events like disasters or the Olympics, and how I keep up with my friends. My best friend has the funniest tweets and I love seeing them.
Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
Beyonce. I know it sounds cliche, but listening to her music and hearing her share parts of herself in songs really resonates with me. I love her work ethic and determination, and the fact that she is unapologetically who she is. She doesn’t need anyone to define her, she’s worked for everything that she’s got, and she’s just a brilliant singer/dancer/director.

We have had the opportunity to photograph some wonderful times in their lives including Josh and Jenna’s wedding, Jackie’s senior photos and a few new additions. So when Logan and Cody approached us to photograph their wedding we were very honored to capture another beautiful family moment for this special couple. Congratulations!
