Lauren + Ryan | Resplendent Garden Wedding

I only booked Lauren and Ryan's wedding about a month ago but I am so happy that this couple fell into my lap. I don't think clients get much sweeter than these two - I really mean that. Lauren is the type of person that makes everyone around her feel welcomed, loved, and important and Ryan treats her so, so well. Their wedding day was a wonderfully happy day for everyone that was there!

Cassidyy + Daniel | Wedding at The Bowery Warehouse in Amarillo

Cassidyy and Daniel are truly some of the best people that I know. Since becoming friends with them earlier this year, they have welcomed Mason and I into their home and into their lives. They have no idea how much their friendship has blessed us. So getting to photograph their wedding was a dream come true for me because it was one of those weddings that holds so much meaning. Yes, it was about their love for one another - but more importantly, it was about their love for Jesus. It's the kind of wedding that stands as a reminder for why I love my job so much.

Cassidyy | Late Summer Bridal Session

Ever since I photographed Cassidyy's now-husband Daniel propose to her at Bar Z Winery last spring, we have become close friends. Really, she's much more of a friend than she is a client. First, our husbands were friends - Mason sometimes helps out playing music at their church. My second time meeting her (besides the time I unknowingly took her picture at her job two years ago!) was when we had a double date with our husbands at 575 Pizzeria. I instantly thought she was hilarious and sassy and I'm so glad to have her as a friend now.

Celia + Blake | Wedding at The Resplendent Garden in Amarillo, Texas

Celia and Blake have been together for over 8 years and I think that gave them plenty of time to become best friends. The foundation of their relationship is obvious. While watching them, I noticed that they barely have to talk to each other to know what the other is going to do next. It's like they can read one another's minds. They have a stable, loving relationship that was a joy to capture on their wedding day.

Sheridan + Jerry | Westminster Presbyterian Church Wedding in Amarillo, Texas

Sheridan and Jerry are one of those couples that I find myself wanting to become best friends with. Their wedding was simply beautiful. It was elegant, sweet, and lovely (all of those good adjectives!) But what really stood out was how fun their wedding day was, especially the reception. Because they planned it well, they were able to relax and just laugh and have a good time together.

Callie + Kyle | Eberley Brooks Wedding in Lubbock, Texas

Callie and Kyle met when mutual friends each brought them to a basketball game. They each had no idea they were about to meet the person they would eventually marry. Though Callie was trying to watch the game, Kyle wanted to make conversation and they ended up talking through the entire game. A few short years later, Kyle surprised Callie by proposing to her on the basketball court surrounded by candles.

Georgia | Palo Duro Canyon Photos

Georgia is a doll!! I mean, I dare you to get over her adorable, nose-crinkling smile. She's only 4 years old but she was a breeze to take photos of and we didn't have to work hard to make her crack a smile. Her mom Laura knows just how to make her laugh and they clearly have a close, special relationship. I hope you enjoy these pictures of this cutie!

Ashley + John | Llano Estacado Winery Wedding

I met Ashley and John way back last year when I attended the Lubbock Bridal Event. Soon after, they booked me for their Llano Estacado wedding and I hated waiting so long to photograph their day! Luckily we got to meet up for their engagement session in the spring at Texas Tech University. During that time I got to understand their personalities and a little bit of their love story.

Sheridan | Westminster Presbyterian Church Bridal Session

Sheridan is really a kindred spirit to me. I've never had a bride so organized and efficient and I absolutely love it! She's one of those brides that I jive so well with. But while we get stuff done, we also have ton of fun during her sessions. I shot her engagement session with now-husband Jerry back in April and then I shot her bridals a couple of weeks ago. Her hilarious, wonderful mother was there during bridals, of course, and she made the experience even better.

Channing + Josiah | Spirit Ranch Wedding in Lubbock, Texas

The night before Channing and Josiah's wedding their pastor got a text from a friend because God told him that peacocks would be a sign of the Holy Spirit for him. That friend didn't know that the next day the pastor would be performing a ceremony at Spirit Ranch - a venue known for its flock of peacocks that roam the grounds. During their wedding ceremony they chose to spend time in worship, right before officially becoming husband and wife.

The Nolan's | Amarillo Family Photo Session

As much as I love photographing families with small children, I find it so refreshing to photograph families with grown children. It's such a breeze! I never have to worry about whether or not someone is looking at the camera or getting distracted (well, most of the time). But seriously this family was so fun to hang out with for an hour and I can tell that they have a lot of fun together. This is their last family photo session before their oldest daughter gets married next month and before they start adding people to the family. It's a special time and I loved getting to document it!
