joy marie + david | anniversary shoot

When I have clients tell me they don’t like getting their picture taken…I REALLY get it!! I’m soooo much more comfortable creating the art than being the subject of it. Here’s a little secret, ONLY use a photographer that you feel super comfortable around! When David and I talked about getting some pictures taken on our 13th wedding anniversary, I knew Jillian Bisinger was that girl for me! Jill is a good friend of ours, and a super talented artist. It’s a good experience for every photographer to get on the other side of the camera. It really shows you how important it is to have that trust with each other in order to get the intimate, vulnerable shots. I am a strong believer that every couple, at every age, should take time out in their relationship to document their love.  When I look through the pictures from this shoot, it makes me so grateful that 13 years ago I said “I do” to the most incredible man I’ve ever met. Jill, thanks for the AMAZING pics. To see more, be sure to check out the feature posted by the wonderful ladies over at Junebug Weddings!

my super fly, super fine hubby!!

I love this behind the scenes shot! Climbing a mountain of trash and rubble to get to the perfect spot. That's what it's all about ladies & gentlemen...light and texture:)

A big thanks to Kirsten Pate for doing my hair & make-up, and Kerry Woodard for styling us. You both did an awesome job!!
