Welcome to 

This is a peek into my little corner of the world where I share stories of my sweet couples in love, encouragement for the creative community, behind the scenes business love, and a look into our personal life with lots of Georgie girl photos, too. Grab a glass of wine or cup of coffee, cozy in, and stay awhile. Friend, I'm so glad you're here!

More fall wedding goodness coming your way today! Lakyn and James are one of the kindest couples, and I’m so excited to share more about their love story and wedding day with you. These two met through their Illinois College connections but not while they were attending Illinois College… It wasn’t until post-graduation that they […]

Five Things I’m Loving Right Now | Friday Five

Just last week Kyle and I were chatting and agreed that… Our winter season has been a little more full than we even realize! We always enjoy a winter break from wedding season, but this winter season we definitely filled most of our free moments with family and friends. The start of March brought a […]


March 2019 Recap | My Life Mondays

Happy March to you! And since I forgot to share this monthly recap last Monday (facepalm!), it’s still coming your way today! The month of February started out in the best way possible… AT THE BEACH! My sister-in-law and I flew down to Florida on her birthday for a quick birthday weekend getaway. It was […]


February 2019 Recap | My Life Mondays

I always love the start of the new year. I’m a planner, so I love sitting down and writing down my personal and business goals for the year and sharing them with my hubby. I’m one of those people that feels encouraged by the start of the new year and what’s ahead. And yes, sometimes […]


January 2019 Recap | My Life Mondays

At the start of 2018, I decided to start a Project 52 (a weekly photo throughout the year)… On a whim! A few years ago, I completed a Project 365 (a daily photo throughout the year) on insta over at #evansproject365, and while it was so fun to document our year via my iPhone in a […]


My 2018 Project 52

Wow, happy 2019! The month of December FLEW BY, as usual! The first of the month brought a trip to the city to take our niece Sofia to The Walnut Room and to see Santa at Macy’s… She LOVED it! To see the joy of Christmastime in her eyes is something I will never forget. […]


December 2018 Recap | My Life Mondays

Happy DECEMBER! Only one more month left this year… As always, time is flying by! The month of November was FULL. I traveled to North Carolina for a conference, rounded out fall sessions, photographed my last weddings of the season, enjoyed Thanksgiving with family, and so much more in between! November is usually the homestretch month […]


November 2018 Recap | My Life Mondays

Whoa, it’s already November, friends! Where did October go? The month of October was full of so many things from family time to business and everything in between. The month started out with my sister-in-law and niece coming to stay with us while they were visiting from Alaska. That first week of the month consisted […]


My Life Mondays | No. 46 | October 2018 Recap

Happy October! It’s officially my birthday month, so you better bet I’m going to enjoy cake a time (or two or three) this month! The past month was slightly nutty, but I’ve come to realize that there is ALWAYS going to be something going on in life and busy things happening, so why not just […]


My Life Mondays | No. 45 | September 2018 Recap

Happy September, friends! I always find it funny how I am never ready for the fall season as the month of August comes to an end… All of the pumpkin spice, fall decor, and even autumn candles start rolling out, and while I am sometimes tempted to start the fall season early, I always resort […]
