Hi, I'm cassie!

So, I had a really *serious* paragraph here for like 2 years.. Then I realized that I don't take myself that seriously in real life so why would I give someone that impression. Anyway, I like to make people laugh.. & I know I could lose a potential client by saying this but.. sometimes I laugh at my own jokes. Pobodies Nerfect amiright? My daily dialogue is mostly quotes from Parks & Rec or The Office. I will proudly admit I am a crazy dog lady & sometimes I go to the movies, buy popcorn and leave. This may sound cliche but I just like to keep it real.. in all aspects of life. So if you're into creating real moments, belly laughs and good food then I think we could be great friends. When I decided to make my passion a career I told myself that I was only going to do this my way; & that entails making lasting connections with my clients. I try to do so by actually becoming your friend. I will fall in love with you and I dare you not to fall in love with me. I want to get to know you, win over your pets and grab a bite to eat. I am interested in learning your story; in order to tell it well. 




I love my job because it allows me to watch the most moving stories. It gives me a key to a world I may have never even have known of. I get to be in the room with a bride when she’s shaking and breathing slowly; clenching the sides of her gown and practically housing thousands of fluttering butterflies. I stand in front of the groom while he starts to hear the foot steps of his bride coming to make her reveal. I watch moms and dads admire their precious children; seen and unseen with such thankfulness and profound love that they never knew existed. I get to help you remember how crazy things were when your kids first out-numbered you and how unexplainably excited you were when he asked you to spend the rest of your life with him. All the heart pounding, life changing, charming, sweet moments eventually become stories..photos help pass them on..and that is my job; to help you tell your story.
