Meet Zach

My (not so) Secret Weapon

Zach is not just my husband, he is also my assistant extraordinaire!(No,not my second shooter) His talents include carrying photo gear, bouquets, coats etc, keeping brides + bridesmaids cool on hot days, warm on cold ones and dry on rainy ones, getting grooms drinks, time keeping and even veil flipping! Having Zach around allows me to focus completely on the couple while he handles all of the miscellaneous tasks that pop up on wedding days. It’s kind of the best!

Nova Gray

Willow is our fearless one. She is as regal as she is goofy, but is so ridiculously smart. Nothing gets past this girl! Fun Fact: we picked her out the day she was born!

Clem, the tiny orange cat, is the big boss around here. SHe is equal parts cuddly and questionable and we like her that way.Fun fact: only 1 in 5 orange tabby cats are female!

Nova is the baby. Even though she is full grown now, she still does what she can to be a lap dog. She is gentle, won't sleep with out a pillow and our resident "Woooo" girl.

E is our sweet old girl. She is eleven but can still cuddle like the best of them. Her pur is crazy loud and she is gentle and sweet - the perfect lady!
