I remember the first time I saw Alec on our college campus... It was the first week of my Freshmen year and I had decided I wouldn't date in college, and let alone find "the one" there. But there he was, playing ultimate Frisbee with some of his friends from Campus Crusade. I instantly thought he was the most handsome man I had ever seen. Tall, dark, handsome and he had the greatest smile. Inside I melted as he walked towards me with a friend of his and invited me to join them. I had never thrown a Frisbee before, but I didn't care if I made a fool of myself... I had to get to know this handsome stranger! In that moment everything I thought changed and I knew I needed to have him in my life.
From there we became good friends but I figured he would never notice me. I am so thankful that I couldn't have been more wrong!...
That tall, dark, and handsome man quickly became my best friend and still is today. He has a way of making me laugh even when I'm angry (which makes me even more mad, haha!), serving me with more grace than I deserve, and showing me that life is about enjoying every little thing we've been given. He's taught me more in our time together about God, love, and life than I ever imagined possible.
Alec and I absolutely love God's design for marriage. It's the greatest adventure we've ever embarked on. There's just nothing better than experiencing life with your best friend by your side!! We believe that marriage should above all be honored, celebrated, and preserved in its most authentic state. It is one of our greatest honors to be able to work with couples about to enter into this journey with us and to encourage them to make the very most of it. Seriously, it's one of our all-time favorite things to be able to champion other couples as they promise each other forever!
Three years after we met we were married and started our own journey as Mr. & Mrs. Now we shoot weddings because we truly believe that marriage is a treasure. We love helping couples enjoy their wedding photography experience while focusing on what matters most: their marriage. What a crazy honor!!
Just last year we built our dream home out in the burbs and are loving having our own place! On weekends we shoot joyful weddings with the most phenomenal couples. The rest of our time is spent with loved ones, lots of ice cream, & a little too much Netflix. You can also frequently find us at either Home Goods (Katie's vice) or the bowling alley (Alec's favorite hobby).
Dixie & Belle the cats, and Ava May, our doggo! They're the best live-in assistants and cuddlers around!! Our lives are happier (and a little harrier) thanks to them!
Our favorites are Sonic slushes, honeybuns & lots of ice cream!!
It's been such a surreal experience & now we're literally living in our dream home. We actually blogged the whole process too so you can follow along!
What can we say? We loved living downtown and never plan on being far from city life. Chattanooga is our favorite!
Whether we're traveling across the world for a wedding or just for fun, it brings us so much joy!
