Life of Nate & Grace

I’m not gonna lie to you. These pictures look like we had a perfect dinner outside with no interruptions but in reality we were just swatting flies away from our food the entire time. 😉 Don’t be fooled.

Whether we were swatting flies or not we were in fact CELEBRATING! Celebrating the incredible year we have had being husband and wife as well as celebrating the beginning of a new website for Grace Anne Photography.

First Year Anniversary…

The past year has not only been the fastest but the best year of our lives! From our amazing honeymoon to Cancún, Mexico, the road trip to South Dakota for Thanksgiving, buying our first house in the spring, and all the late night walks through the neighborhood to just talk…it has been beyond amazing.

I am incredibly grateful for the man who chose to spend his life with me. He tells me I can when I doubt myself. He loves me when I don’t deserve it. He tells me to keep going when I want to stop. He makes me do things outside my comfort zone. He serves when it’s the hardest to serve. I couldn’t imagine spending my life with anyone else than Nathan Ballmann. Love you baby!

New Website

It’s been months and months of designing, re-designing, thinking, hard work, late nights brain storming, making decisions on the tiniest of details and finally ending with what you will see tomorrow. Tomorrow marks the day we launch not only a new website but the new Grace Anne Photography. It involves so much more than photographs. It involves who we are as a business. What we represent. How we interact with our brides and grooms. It involves the experience you will receive from us.

I am so grateful to have had this little evening with my husband to celebrate all the blessings we have been given this past year. We thank The Lord for loving us and providing for us with everything we need. We thank our family and friends who have supported us and keep supporting us in this journey. And last we thank all of our amazing clients we have had the past few years and all of our future clients.

This is just the beginning y’all and we couldn’t be more excited!
