We are often asked where we find inspiration as wedding photographers. “Live the Life you Love” — during our time with Beth as she was finishing hair and makeup, I noticed the phrase she had placed in script on her forearm.

They decided to include a wedding ribbon tying into their ceremony — it’s always so nice when couples add personal touches whether they be religious, ethnic or family traditions.
After, we were able to have a period of creative photographs on the Benton Grove grounds — including a scenic shot high over the valley and farms below on a beautiful mustard sette. Incidentally, if you just happen to love the vintage sette as much as we do — Beth just so happened to launch a fantastic vintage rental shop, the Mustard Couch, shortly after her wedding!
