At just 14 and 16 years old, Drew and I said "I love you" to each other for the first time. At 18, we gave our love a real shot and have let God write the rest for us. To put it in short, we said “I do” under a desert sunrise in Moab, Utah and we have two little ones running around. We’d love to share the details over coffee, as we believe we have conquered so much about life and love in such a short time and are committed to growing old with one another through whatever that takes. Our relationship and our life together is the inspiration for this business. We love to capture each couple in their own unique way as they write their stories together. We are based in Peoria, Illinois but we love to travel wherever your love takes you!

The Taphorns

Forever trying anything new just to say I did it and asking the questions others won't. I love to learn and have a busy mind, find joy in and often awestruck by the simplest of things, and usually laughing through life. I'm enneagram type 7 through-and-through. 

THE OPPORTUNIST

A typical type 9, Drew will make sure everyone else's needs are cared for before his own. Without his support of all of my dreams, we wouldn't be doing this thing together today. He's rational, tech-savvy, and I love the way he sees the world.

""It's like my life isn't even real to me unless you're there and you're in it and I'm sharing it with you..."

Other things that makes my heart skip a beat or I find myself blushing over: 

Compliments from my husband, morning snuggles with my baby boys, kisses from our Irishdoodle pup, a perfectly made Miel, hearty soup on a cold day, cotton candy skies, cooking & homemaking, setting the foundation for my boys in their prayer life, fresh clean sheets, the smell of a new book and a freshly cracked spine, and pretty little details.
