12 Details for Your Wedding Morning Photos

My family recently got family portraits taken, and let me tell you- even as a professional photographer, it is an ORDEAL to pick out everyone’s outfits!

6 Tips for Choosing Outfits for Photos

One of the many perks of it being “off season” for me is that I have more time to invest in things other than editing!
