It’s here! The 2019 Hey Tay round-up!

Good Bodies will have its own round-up so keep your eye on the blog for that, but for now I just want to celebrate all the amazing couples, families, & weddings I got to experience in 2019.

I photographed 15 weddings and over 30 couples + families (let me know if I missed you, sorting through files can be WILD) these are in no particular order, but they do encompass the journey that was this year.

I made a ton of milestones.

I quit my other full-time job and was able to make more time for what I love.
I traveled to 3 different states to officiate and photograph weddings for amazing people.
I got married!
I rebranded to fit my full time jive.

I am so proud of everything I accomplished this year and I’m so glad to have met the people who helped me experience it. Here’s to an even better 2020 where I’ll get to experience Mexico, Florida, LA, & wherever else you want me.

See you in the next decade!

This post has been brewing and brewing simply because I did not want to jump the gun. My weddings that were all set to occur in the past few months involved me speaking individually to the couples affected. Like much of the midwest, “wedding season” when not counting these summer months, is in the fall. […]

Anyone else feel their ability to “person” correctly dissipate during all of this? I was a blogging fool once upon a time if you can believe it. Now, I’m trying to remember which of my perfect couples I haven’t graced the blog with yet. I immediately stumbled upon Hayley & Bryce. Just waiting in my […]

There’s a pandemic. We all can acknowledge that and move on. Moreover, we all realize the way that it’s changed our day-to-day life and the wedding industry as we know it. Madelyn and Quincy knew they wanted to get married on their 4-year dating anniversary. Luck would have it that in 2020 it was a […]
