We want to make you feel at HOME. Whether that is helping you gain back precious time with your family through shouldering your editing load--or adventuring with you while capturing genuine moments on your wedding day--our mission is to make your experience comfortable so you can focus on what really matters: Creating authentic, joyful memories with the people you love most.
HELLO, we're so happy you're here!
"Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."
- Galatians 6:2
We want to go deeper with you. This isn’t simply about work and business, or even pretty pictures. This is about building a relationship on the basis of trust.
We want you to trust us, and therefore we want you to feel comfortable enough to kick off your shoes and stay awhile. Let's hang out!
Home is the place where you feel safe. It’s the place with all your favorite things in it; Favorite sounds, smells, memories, and people.
At least that’s how it is for us. In our house you’ll find smooshy baby cheeks and preschooler giggles, tickle fights and family movie nights with air-popped popcorn. You can sit on our back porch to breathe the scent of the grill on warm evenings while Hobbes catches the frisbee we toss for him, and enjoy some freshly brewed meadow tea poured over crackling ice in tall glasses.
You’ll find we make things with our hands because it gives us life--whether that’s through pressing a new block of cheese, getting dirt on our jeans in the garden, pulling freshly steeped grains from a boiling pot for a new homebrew, scraping wax cappings off a frame of honey, or freezing a new memory with the click of a shutter button. Best of all, our favorite part is sharing all of this with you. Welcome to our home!
Adam, told by Meagan
Adam is my hero. Not only is he a kind, patient husband and father, but also a warrior spider killer and run-away-Labrador chaser. I think the man could make me laugh at just about anything he says--I know he's trying to think of something witty when his blue eyes start twinkling and his dimple begins to show. He often asks me, "So what do you want for dinner?" rather than, "What's for dinner?" because he has got some mad cooking skills. He'll try to tell you it's only because he likes to eat that he likes to cook, but you'll find he enjoys sharing the experience with other people just as much.
You can find him in the kitchen grating ginger, outside with his meat smoker (home brew in hand), or if you can't find him cooking, you should hit the trails. Hobbes (that big furry brown dog I've mentioned) might be jaunting out in front of him, tail bobbing happily as he looks back over his shoulder for his beloved master. Adam also really loves games. He gets giddy when UPS drops off a package containing yet another tabletop board game that I will inevitably learn to love, or when the Olympics are back on TV. You won't see him out much during the month of March (as in, does he even exist?!) and when he gets a chance to go to a PSU football game with his dad I can never say no. Adam talks about teaching our kids to stargaze and dreams of someday having an annual family Star Wars marathon. He loves well, laughs often, and has my heart.
Meagan, told by Adam
While it wasn't love at first sight, having the same group of friends allowed us to get to know one another and spend time together. One day, I had a realization: "Dang, Meagan is really pretty. And she treats everyone so nice...I've never heard anyone say anything bad about her. She's smart, funny, has her head on straight, and seems like she knows what she wants out of life. And she's pretty.
A nurturer to the core, Meagan's heart is full when she cares for things. She loves her children passionately and takes great pride in her gardens, which are used to feed the family throughout the summer and early fall. When she's not laughing at my jokes - which is seriously almost all the time, it makes me feel good about myself - she's probably laughing at our kids who are an endless source of amusement to us. In her spare time, Meagan can be found curling up with a good book and a mug of hot tea (or, depending on her mood, a glass of wine), taking afternoon walks with her family, and baking delicious treats. Meagan also loves creating art, DIY projects, and cheese making. I love watching the joy and excitement pouring out of her when she's doing these things. And she's really pretty.
I really admire Meagan's talents and abilities. I mean, she earned two degrees at Penn State in one less semester than it took me to get one. She's organized, driven, artistic, and so very compassionate. She's a great friend who will support you wholeheartedly and will always greet you with a warm smile.
