Lyndsey and Clay are such a special couple. Clay and I actually went to high school together, so when Lyndsey reached out about me about potentially photographing her wedding, I knew I was going to love her. Lynsdey and I immediately clicked!

One of the most commonly asked questions I get from both brides and photographers is, “when should we start pictures”? Well, after photographing nearly 50 weddings, I’ve learned the do’s and don’ts of wedding timelines. Do: Allow for a LOT of buffer time. If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few years, it’s […]
