2015 Recap

This *might* be my longest post ever. You might think it’s because I’m super thorough and really wanted to provide a great reflection on the past year. It’s really not. I’m actually just incredibly indecisive. So, prepare yourself for an onslaught of pictures! In years past, I’ve done a “best of” series that typically included a…

A minute with my intern!

For starters, it’s absurd how long it took us to come up with a title for this post. Yesterday was my sweet intern, Tiffany’s, last day!! We’ve shared many doughnuts, long car rides, visits to Merritt’s Pasture and laughing until your stomach hurts fits over the last three months! I will miss her greatly in…

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”  Isaiah 30:21 When Brendan and I began dating, one of our first conversations was about our desire to pursue international missions. He had spent summers in the Dominican Republic,…

My Destination Wedding Photography Wishlist

I spent a summer in Kenya and a semester in Italy where we roamed all over Europe on the weekends (Dream life, I know!). My dad’s military career zigzagged my family from coast-to-coast four times before my 12th birthday and allowed…


Happy Six Months, Love

When you’re in you first year of marriage, every milestone, big and small, is celebrated. Well, at least in the House of Payne it is. First piece of furniture bought, first time to referring to him as “my husband”, first load of mixed laundry, 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, 100 days since the wedding….

  • Shannon Spain Weynand - Emily. How beautiful. I loved reading this and totally agree with it all – this post inspires me and reminds me:
