"Here's to the ones who dream, foolish as they may seem."
We have known each other since our middle school days! How many spouses get to say that!? Pretty much since then we have had a middle school fling, started dating in high school (for real this time), dated into college, eventually got engaged and got married on June 21st, 2015 at The Barn on Bridge in Collegeville, PA! There are a whole bunch of details in that span of time that is just too much to even mention here. We will say that our story isn't the craziest or cutest, but that it is unique and special to us. We could clearly see God's hand at work and find it so cool that we were placed in each other's lives!
I actually keep track of all the movies I watch during the year (is that weird?)
Dogs are really man's best friend and make me incredibly happy! I like to think of myself as a dog whisperer although our dog, Chance, is still learning to listen.
I believe the best thing to do on a rainy day is to binge on Netflix shows! I am obsessed with the tv show "Friends" and like to think of Chandler as my spirit animal. I also quote this show on the regular.
So I'm really bad at the healthy eating side of things. Never was big into veggies, although, I do love me some fruit! Pizza, burgers, and some chocolate cake is where it's at. Also, I swear I crave Chinese food at least 3 times a week!
I grew up on Star Wars and freaked out during a certain Darth Vader scene in Rogue One, but I mean, who didn't!? The sorting hat said I'm a Hufflepuff (Go Badgers)! And I'm pretty sure I'd be a goner if I lived in Westeros... I am a Hufflepuff after all.
I'm so fortunate to have turned a hobby into a career. I never thought I'd be working as a wedding photographer! I am also a filmmaker and studied film in college. I also dabble around with music from time to time.
I am obsessed with Bath & Body Works soaps & candles! I've actually worked part time for Bath & Body Works for the last 4 years and will constantly come home with soaps and candles! They just smell so good!
I often say that my dinner side is full, but my dessert side is empty. I definitely have a sweet tooth that I can't ignore.
I grew up with cats and am in the process of convincing Josiah to get one. That's not to say I don't love dogs, especially our little bubby, Chance.
I practically grew up at my dad's theatre where I learned to do all sorts of tech work like running the lighting booth. If I could go back to college, I wish I would have minored in theatre.
I graduated from West Chester University in 2014 (Go Rams!) with a degree in Elementary Education. I currently work at Devon Elementary. Teaching is a passion of mine and has been every since I taught my stuffed animals as a kid.
My pop-pop taught me photography as a kid. He now leaves me pennies and sunflower seeds. I grew up as a threatre kid. I love going to painting with a twist and have multiple paintings hanging in our home. And I'm currently learning calligraphy.
We absolutely love to travel! We don't get to do it very often, but when we do, it makes us super happy. We love traveling to New York City to catch a show and explore the neighborhoods. We sometimes travel separately. Steph will go with her girlfriends and Josiah will travel with his guy friends. Best of all is when we get to travel for weddings!
We love being with friends! We're both introverted, but getting together with our best friends really pumps us up! Sometimes that looks like a game night at home or a night out at a bar, movie, distillery and often an escape the room! If you haven't tried an escape the room, you need to!
We love eating good food! Steph is an awesome cook and so she'll make everything from delicious salmon, to amazing taco's and burgers. She also bakes incredibly tasty cake! We love eating out at restaurants and trying places we've never been, but love our regular spots, too!
We are huge homebodies and love snuggling up on the couch, throwing on Netflix and binging our favorite TV shows or catching up on the latest movies. Of course, we love being home with Chance and just taking it easy. Home is where the heart is, right?
let's adventure together
We love to travel and if we can travel and shoot weddings at the same time then that is the best day ever! We've been everywhere from Pennsylvania to Colorado to Mexico to photograph weddings! Traveling really provides us with a lot of inspiration!
