steve had no idea when we met many moons ago that i would be dragging him along to 60+ weddings, and i had no idea that he would take to it as well as he did. but here we are, eight or so years later, and after shooting last weekends wedding he said to me, “i think we should do this full time.” we. both of us. the idea had always seemed daunting and unattainable — theres no way we could both be stay at home parents. out came the spreadsheets with a trusting team over our finances and guys, we’re doing it.
holy smokes, is this a huge leap of faith. to rely on the Lord and his provisions this strongly to provide for our family. our dreams are this- a set amount of weddings per year, weekdays home together. waking up with steve on more than just the weekends, breakfast together all four of us. trips, for homeschooling of simply for adventures, during the week or on weekends we arent shooting. time for steve to spend with the me and the kids more often – to grow our roots deeper than a white oak. to think this could be possible for us, to live so freely together, its really honestly the biggest life altering blessing and we couldnt be more thrilled.
so take a peak around! we’ve changed up our site a bit to accommodate db photography. we’ve chosen to integrate our personal blog and business blog together because our point to both is the same — sharing the beauty in simple moments, and taking the time to slow down and focus where most may miss. we’ve been so honored to have you following along with our life, and we’re excited to bring this aspect of our life as well. thank you thank you a hundred times thank you! lets amp up the lovin’ ; )
Last month, we had the opportunity to photograph our first wedding in Philadelphia, and what a positively beautiful wedding to break us in to the big city ; )
Having met with Jen and David just a few short months before their wedding, we knew we were going to love working with them. Both of them were so kind and genuine, not to mention so incredibly in love! The day went without hassle – everything flowed effortlessly.
Their wedding happened to take place the weekend of a street market. The city was a buzz with vendors, many people walking their pups, and MANY yelling their congratulations to the Bride. Naturally, we had to grab the grooms favorite breed of dog for a few shots. The owner was positively thrilled – taking some photos of her own on her phone.
The reception took place at Rittenhouse Tavern – a quaint art gallery with a unique layout, details, as well as the current art display shown above. This work was created entirely out of backlit film negatives.
