I'm Loren and I'm so happy you're here! This blog a journal about our lives, weddings we have the opportunity to photograph, and whatever else feels like it needs it's own little home on the blog!
It’s no secret to anyone that I am clearly not a food photographer, and certainly not a food blogger! However, I just took a break from editing to whip up some lunch and decided to share a very loose “recipe” of one of our favorites! This Southwest Chicken Salad is one I threw together on […]
Jayme & Marlee got married in Marlee’s hometown of Stuttgart, Arkansas. If you don’t know where that is, don’t worry! Not many people do. This southeast Arkansas small town is surrounded by rice fields and the duck hunting capital of Arkansas Ha! Their wedding day was suppose to be rainy and cold, but it ended […]
Oh Marlee *insert heart eyes* This girl is just as beautiful of a human as she is stunningly gorgeous! David and I met Marlee when she was a bridesmaid in two different weddings we have photographed of her friends. Each time we left the wedding, we both had nothing but great things to say about […]
The Portfolio Building Workshop round two was so incredibly dreamy!! This Workshop was greatly inspired by the classic romance of a southern charm wedding! I wanted to incorporate Pretty Old Stuff NWA‘s stunning blue and white China to compliment the soft white, green, and shades of blue color palette. Ollie Marie’s kept the floral designs […]
This day, where do I even begin!? There were so many things that I loved about Morgan and Christian’s wedding day! The day began in the classic 1930s bridal suite house at The Ballroom At I Street in Bentonville. Laughter, stories, giggles, and pure joy echoed through the house as the bridal party finished getting […]
I have forgotten just how much I adore shooting at The Ballroom At I Street in Bentonville, Arkansas! The clean and bright white ballroom is the perfect simplistic backdrop to create stunning portraits. I love the plantation feel of the getting ready house, and how it compliments the courtyard so well! Not to mention the […]
Now that she is officially a MRS, I can FINALLY share Lauren’s bridal session!! I’ve been dying to get these out into the world since the day I took them – I even edited and put the blog post together long before I could post because I was so excited to share them! The moment […]
This wedding was so FUN!! Alek and Shannan were a #covidcouple that had to completely change their wedding day plans because of the pandemic restrictions. Their original wedding day at Kindred North got moved to an intimate ceremony with family and a socially distance parking lot “reception” of a few close friends congratulating them. Because […]
I wanted to write a post on wedding timelines because I know this is something everyone struggles on. When do you have your ceremony? How long do family formals take? We want to be able to stop at bars in between but don’t want to cut into portrait time. These are all possible questions and […]
You may have seen my recent post “Benefits Of A Day-Of Wedding Coordinator” by Elizabeth Northrop of Kindred Blooms and wondered to yourself, what’s the difference of a day-of coordinator and a wedding planner? Well today, Britt Jones of Britt Jones Co. Weddings is here to give us a little insight into those differences! As an […]
I have to confess something. I have a deep love for first looks on weddings days. Which is actually pretty ironic coming from the girl that didn’t have a first look at her own wedding. That was one of the only things that my husband requested of our wedding day. I tried to talk him […]
