Thank You & Farewell

After almost 7 years in business, HAKP is closing its doors. This was not an easy decision, but I am confident that it's the right one. While I am extremely grateful for the amazing business you have all given me (truly I am),  for whatever reason the photography fire inside me has become a matchstick flame. So in true keeping with my motto "Do things with passion or not at all", here I am writing this blog post. I will be finishing out all of my commitments through July 1 of 2018, so if you

Jordan & Jessyka | Sept 12, 2015

When they married back in 2010, there was no proposal or any sort of formal planning. They had been together for almost 4 years and decided they just wanted to

Married | Kevin + Becky

This was such a beautiful wedding. It was the kind of elegant that appeared effortless. It was also the first time that I'd never met the bride or groom before the wedding day! Since Becky's mom is the one who contacted me and booked me for the wedding, I mainly spoke to her. I did get to chat with Becky over email once or twice, but the wedding was the first time I met anyone! I was a bit nervous and praying that we all meshed well together. It was a very pleasant surprise, because EVERYONE was
