Love Preserved

Goodness I’ve been so very excited to finally share these photos from our Southern Weddings V8 editorial! Earlier this spring one of the most incredible teams of vendors and artists came together to make this project come to life and of course the Nancy Ray Photography team captured it all perfectly. The idea behind the […]

If you’re a fan and supporter of Southern Weddings you’ve probably seen or have even read through from cover to cover your very own copy of Volume 8. It hit newsstands just last week and it’s a beauty! And if you haven’t yet you can do just that over here (and you absolutely should because […]

Wind & Water

Wind & Water

For a couple years now I’ve had a vision of creating a Wind and Water inspired editorial shoot. But when I think of the ocean I often defer to quite a few different elements than that of a lake; seashells, starfish, palm trees, crystal blue waters, and coral to name a few. And here in […]

Danielle + Nick

This past summer, the HGE team had the tremendous pleasure of executing one very special event for one truly special couple. Danielle and Nick came to me last spring of 2014 needing help with planning their destination Northern Michigan event. As soon as I took time to get to know the couple I was smitten. […]

Emily + Matt

Typing up this post to go hand in hand with Emily and Matt’s wedding brought on some seriously melancholy feelings for me today. See, Emily and Matt (and especially Emily’s family) become somewhat of my own over the almost 17 months we planned this celebration together. I was welcomed into their home with open arms, […]

Kristine + Brett

When a couple has been together for more than ten years and come to you to plan their big day, there’s admittedly a bit more pressure than normal to create something really spectacular. I still remember the day Kris and I skyped together for our initial meeting (with her sweet Mom by her side) and […]

An Intimate Hey Gorgeous Events Elopement

An Intimate Hey Gorgeous Events Elopement

A few months ago I had the pleasure of seeing a very special endeavor from last summer published within the premiere issue of Cottage Hill Magazine. It was a meaningful editorial project that was more than just dreamy details or inspirational images. It was a story that we all worked so hard to bring to […]

Brogan + Doug

This is the stuff magic is made of. Brogan and Doug, Doug and Brogan. I’m so lucky to work with such incredible souls. When Brogan had first come to me to potentially be a part of her and Doug’s big day, she had just lost her sweet Mom. We talked on the phone for a […]

Because it’s a complete visual overload of gorgeous details, sweet Southern traditions and some of the most beautiful photographs I’ve been lucky enough to add into my portfolio thus far in my career. But first a little back story. And stick with me because […]

Finally! Today is the day I share my most favorite shoot ever with the loveliest imagery captured by no other than Tec Petaja. This shoot graced the cover of Southern Weddings Magazine volume 7 and I couldn’t feel more grateful for such an incredible opportunity to share my passions and do my best work. There’s […]

Butter & Citrus

Butter & Citrus

This past summer I had the pleasure of serendipitously connecting with the gracious and crazy talented Sara Hasstedt in Denver, Colorado. We decided to seize the day (or the week, if you will) and make a little magic happen together. Logistically things were sort of crazy that week because shipping florals halfway across the country can […]

Goodness me, my friends! I can hardly believe I am typing these words but I am absolutely honored and thrilled to have my florals on the newest cover of Southern Weddings Magazine. The Southern Weddings brand and mission is such a special one and one that no doubt is paving (and really, has already paved!) […]
