I've had the pleasure of watching this couple bloom since before I shot their engagement session. I've said it before and I'll say it again! Lee's love for Mariah is so apparent it makes my heart flutter.

I am so thrilled with all of the positive feedback I have been receiving about my new website, brand, and even blog! You are all so sweet and that's why I love my job! :)  Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter, located on the right side of my blog.  (There may be a giveaway in the near future!)

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to head to the Santa Cruz Mountains to attend The Bloom Workshop.  I knew I wanted to create a blog when I rebranded my website, but I didn't know where to start.  Michaela, from Michaela Noelle Designs, and Ashley, from Ashley Slater Photography, were just what I needed to get the creative juices flowing.  We covered everything from blogging to social media.  To finish off the day, the two ladies had a styled shoot planned for us and walked us through some photography tips.  Here are some shots from the day :)
