What’s love got to do with it? Everything! When you think of Valentine’s Day, what do you think of? Cupid’s arrow? Chocolates? Roses? I will say all of the above! I remember one Valentine’s Day (many, many moons ago) when I awoke to red streamer-paper that my husband had tied to my legs that led me on a trail through my bedroom, down my hall and that ended with a beautiful box of chocolates with a gold herring-bone necklace inside (yes, it was that long ago, when herring-bone necklaces were all the rage!). *Sigh* Yes, Valentine’s should be all that! It’s not just a Hallmark holiday, but a day to be reminded to take the time to appreciate the ones you love. This FABULOUS styled shoot that I was so incredibly happy to be a part of is my featured blog for today’s special day! As for me, I’m looking forward to my nice glass of cabernet and a box full of chocolates!!!
And a special thanks to the incredible talent that made it all possible!

And a big thank-you to Katelyn James for the inspiration and mentorship that has helped me grow to be the kind of wedding photographer that not only pushes beyond expectations but doesn’t settle with mediocrity. The weekend spent with you was fabulous!
