Dear Monday

October 31, 2016

Dear Monday, Your weather patterns leave much to be desired. Yesterday Ty and I got off the plane in DC after spending the weekend in Michigan (where it was in the high 70’s) and it was 80 degrees… neither of which did we plan for. Unfortunately, I was wearing a sweater, scarf, and wool socks Continue Reading

October 24, 2016

Dear Monday, You’re the first day of the year that I’ve woken up and thought…if I get out of bed right now, I will certainly freeze into an ice cube. The husband is boycotting the heat until our eyeballs start to ice over. So, there’s that.  Dear Cleveland Indians, It’s been 19 years since you’ve Continue Reading

Adam & Meredyth

They met sometime during their sophomore year at JMU. Actually, Adam doesn’t recall the first time he actually met Meredyth, but he distinctly remembers two things about her – her enchanting smile and beautiful blonde hair. He recognized that she was in a sorority by her letters and quickly questioned a dorm friend about who she might be. Continue Reading

A Fairmont DC Wedding Film Sneak Peek

Dan + Julie

They met unexpectedly at a friend’s birthday dinner on a night remembered most by a blizzard that was happening outside. Both being from the midwest, they agreed that this night was particularly “bad weather” despite the eastern definition of “bad”!!

October 17, 2016

Dear Monday, It’s going to be a long day. I woke up this morning at 5AM from one of the worst dreams I’ve EVER had in my whole life. I laid awake in bed for over an hour contemplating if I should just get up and start the day. Somehow all the inner turmoil put me Continue Reading

A Terian Farms Wedding Film

Steven + Kelly

Their jobs, while based in different states, took them to the same training intensive one summer. Some would say they met in the most inconspicuous way. But if you know them, it makes the most perfect sense. They met playing table games in the cafeteria of Colorado State University. Kelly caught Steven’s eye. And in that moment, Continue Reading
