As high school sweethearts, we know love doesn't always come easy. Every love story is filled with twists, turns, ups, and downs. But, like anything we work oh-so-hard for, we know every love story is worthwhile! We fell in love in church + got married early, in a time where that wasn't popular. While our story is filled with those twists and turns, our Love for the Lord brought us to a wonderful place. When we work hard and give God every part (the good, the bad, the everything) He turns it into something beautiful. We didn't plan on being photographers, but here we are loving it! God has a funny way of working everything out if we trust in Him. Because of our experiences, we provide authentic, emotive photography for couples who work day in, day out for their one-of-a-kind love story... couples who know every day is an adventure they want to cherish with their best friend by their side. We have worked with amazing people and are so grateful for each experience! We are excited to continue pursuing our dream and can't wait to share more stories ahead!
Being a wife and a mom is what I had prayed for since I was little. I prayed for the man I would marry and I prayed for the kids I wanted to have. I had no idea what God had in store for us the day I said “I Do”, but I love finding joy in the journey as we do life together! Trevor + Griffin have stolen my heart, in more ways than I can say. I have learned so much over the years and am incredibly grateful for family!
And by shopping I mean hunting for a great decor deal! I could spend all day strolling the aisles of Target (insert a groan from Trevor) in search of the perfect thing on sale! I dream about things that will look good in our fixer upper that we are working on. It's a good thing Dave Ramsey is my hero! He keeps me on budget and saving money! :) Seriously! I'm reading "The Total Money Makeover" and it will change your life!
I hadn't watched an episode of The Office till Trevor + I got married.... I was hooked. After watching it 1000x through, it is the perfect show when I need background noise or want to laugh. I know all the episodes by heart!
As for New Girl, I somehow stumbled upon it and well... the rest is history. I can't tell you how many times I have said "I relate to that" while watching that show!
I absolutely LOVE plants and flower! I love peony flowers and succulent plants... but here is my problem. I am a plant killer. I do really good for a while, then I go through an extra busy season, forget to water my plants and they all die. Every time, I promise myself I'll do right by these plants and every time is the same. Maybe one day my thumb will actually turn green and finally my plants will no longer be at risk.
Being a family man is super important to me! I'll never take for granted the moments my son runs up to me to show me something or copies the moves I make. It reminds me of those same moments with my dad. You could always find me working along side him. Handing him tools, talking shop like I knew what I meant. Having these moments with me son is one of the most important privileges that God has given me.
Yes, I am a St. Louis Cardinals & St. Louis Blues fan! Growing up in the area, I loved going to any game I could. Some of my favorite memories are attending with my family, eating Hot Dogs and drink a cold coke, cheering on my teams.
Being able to share those memories + make new ones with my son mean more than I can ever put into words.
I grew up on land, with that came adventure and so many memories. As a kids I'd go camping, hunting, fishing, paint-balling, ride four-wheelers and more. As an adult, I basically do the same things... except now I don't ask my Mom for permission.
Spending time on my motorcycle or outside with my family making memories is priceless to me. We love to take adventures in the O'Bryan family.
