Welcome Friends

Meet Susannah

Rhymes with Moana (Disney reference for the win)

If I could have my way, we’d be having this conversation face to face. We’d likely be curled up on opposite ends of the couch with warm cups of tea in hand. There would definitely be fuzzy socks and a tray of snacks (I’m thinking popcorn) because this is a cozy, happy space. 

In my home on the internet my door is always open. Here I’m building a life that feels as good on the inside as it looks on the outside. I’ll be sharing tips, tricks, and personal stories. Plus my favorite lifestyle hacks, date ideas, and budgeting tips. You’ll probably also get some photos of my pets (you’re welcome!) and some mindful living ideas as Jeff and I work together to make our first home, the cutest little midcentury bungalow, all our own!

My Background

Ten years ago, I photographed my first wedding. I was only 16, but that first wedding was the start of nearly 100 that have come since. Weddings have been the source of countless joys and so many dear friendships in my life. In fact, for years I couldn’t imagine being anything BUT a wedding photographer…until I had my wedding, and marriage brought a new set of dreams and priorities with my husband Jeff. Walt Disney once said, “I don’t like repeat successes; I like to go on to other things.” I think he must have been on to something because recently, I feel my heart pulled on to other things.

Life leading up to our wedding was filled with beautiful anticipation of a life together. Life after the wedding is filled with selfies, business wins, pets, dates, budgeting, new adventures, laughter… and some home improvement projects. It’s the best journey I’ve ever been on. I’m excited you’re here for the trip!

I Believe

I believe in love, the kind of love that compels you to do wild impulsive things

I believe in the kind of love that makes me believe in fairytales. I believe strong is beautiful and that quiet moments speak the loudest. I believe there is beauty in dichotomy. I believe that small moments in a relationship matter, and those small fragments, when laced together, create a tapestry of strength around your relationship. I believe that traveling grows your soul and grounds your heart to what you value most. I believe in dreaming big dreams, so that I have visions to direct my future. I believe action cures fears and I believe in doing hard things! But most of all, I believe in bringing joy to those around me, because love will be the way I change the world.
