Shown, Unshown – July into August

Oh, how I've missed you all! And so here I am again, trying to document and share after being absent from this space for much longer than I'd hoped, planned, or anticipated!

Rain Storms and Double Rainbows – Our Farm Wedding Pics!

After nine years of partnership, Kim and I finally tied the knot on September 5th in our very own Farm Wedding! We planned and prepped and pulled everything together with a nine week turnaround time and enjoyed the most phenomenal weekend filled with family and friends, food and shots, hilarity and ridiculousness. Friends and family (including my very best friend…
