I love photographing beautiful brides all across the country! I truly love what I do, and I'm so lucky to be able to do what I love. But I have to say, I love being a mom first! And I may be biased, but I have beautiful kids, who would rival any model! If you're tired of seeing beautiful photos of my gorgeous birthday girl, then this post will disappoint! However, this post isn't about photos, but about video!

When Brenda and I were chatting about and planning her engagement session, she knew that she wanted to include her puppy, Nica. Photographing pets is always a challenge, but we love incorporating these lovable family members when we can! Nica was a bit shy, but perfectly behaved.

Still photos can capture a brief moment of time, and while they are always my favorite (and my priority), I do love watching those photos come to life and getting a glimpse of the action of the day!

A lot of our clients do not hire videographers for their day. This is one reason that we really love surprising our clients with fusion videos! The fusion video is a great way to give an overall sense of a wedding day, and that little bit of movement adds so much! We've found that our clients love having a short preview of their day with all the important moments covered.
