“It is no secret we are Dave Ramsey freaks. In order for us to save more, we don’t allow ourselves a lot of spending money. We only get $30 for date nights and that is probably once or twice (maybe) a month. And most of you are appalled with that hahaha!! Seeing the look on people's face when we tell them that, the wide eyed jaw drop is hilarious! But we are ok with it, we aren't deprived. We can go out to eat once with $30 or we can break it up! Although we…”
What did you think about last week’s challenge? Did you do it? If so, were you completely shocked or were you expecting it?!
While making this lifestyle change to financial freedom, you HAVE to stay motivated. In a world where credit cards and fancy new cars are “cool,” you can easily get off track. Over the last year and a half, we have found what works best to keep us motivated and are excited to share it with you guys!!
I have had a lot of people tell me that cash is intimidating ... That's the point! When you have cash you see it leaving your possession. Many people have also asked how we NEVER swipe cards, how I have switched our expenses over to cash and how I got Travis on board with all cash - This blog is for yall!!
Hailey and Reny are from the Sunshine State, but love Bryson City just as much as we do! Reny grew up going as a kid, since his family lives there also and then took Hailey in the recent years. Come to find out, our families know each other!

“We finally got another break in this nasty rain!! And were starting to get some sunshine! Travis, Marissa and I met at Yorktown for their mini engagement session. Yorktown is so significant to them, because he asked her out at…”
Yorktown has been a hot spot for me lately and I love it!! Tracy and I met this past week for her headshots, I love having to find the perfect spots that match each client!! She brought these beautiful flowers and they added the perfect flare!!
“One thing Trav and I have NEVER fought about is money. Seriously!! That doesn't mean times haven't been hard or tight, because we have had our fair share of hard and tight times. We just know we are on the same team, with the same goal, which makes things so much easier.
Before we even got engaged, Travis and I took the…”
“Due to rain and sicknesses we have been having to postpone this family session since January (!!!), but thankfully this rain we’ve been having gave us a break and we were able to finally have their session! We met in Yorktown so that we could get many different varieties! ….”

“Wow. This is real. These are MY baby brother’s senior pictures!! And he graduates this year. I’m speechless.
We grew up fighting and had a love hate relationship, as most siblings do. One minute we were partners in crime, the next we were turning our backs on each other. LOL true story! Even when we were bickering, he was always ready to fight any boyfriend I brought home, always protected me, wrote…”

“This past week I flew to my favorite place ever to photograph a couple’s wedding that is so near and dear to me! I flew in Wednesday so that I could spend some time with family before the wedding and then Friday came and we worked our butts off running errands and prepping for the wedding! …..”
The past two years have been crazy. Very crazy. In 2017 we spent majority of the year wedding planning and packing my things to move into Travis' house, had our wedding, honeymoon, moved into trav's, oyster roast celebration, and the holidays. In 2018 we tackled the transition of change, adjusting to …
“Anyone else get a "high" after doing something you love?! Yeah, well that's how I feel after today's session! Kayla and Nick welcomed their sweet boy into this world a month ago and asked me to document this season for them, so we met up at Studio at Wharf Hill and did just that!
