I couldn’t be more excited to share this wedding. When Kira and Eddie asked me to come along to their St. Lucia destination wedding I almost cried I was so excited. I feel like I’ve been with this couple from the beginning! Ok, ok not from the start of their relationship, but from the start […]

Ok, better late than never right? I usually try to do this post right at the new year but um… I’ll be honest with you guys. I didn’t want to. Not that I didn’t want to do the post, because these year in review posts are literally my favorite, but I wanted to be present […]

Honestly, I haven’t really seen very many truly “scandalous” moments that most people think I have. I’m 100% sure that is due to how incredible my clients are, and what good people they are!
