Weston + Aubrey | Proposal in Palo Duro Canyon

Proposals are just the best because I get to keep a secret! Sure, I’m nervous the whole time and freaking out that I’m going to accidentally say something to give the secret away but it’s so much fun!

Weston contacted me a few weeks ago because he and his girlfriend were coming to Palo Duro Canyon for a vacation. He knew that he wanted to propose and he knew that Aubrey would love having pictures of the moment. So we hatched a plan. He told her that his mom wanted to get pictures of the two of them so she thought it was a regular photo session. All that changed when at the end, overlooking the canyon at sunset, Weston got down on one knee and proposed. Weston was nervous for weeks leading up to that moment but I’m sure it was worth it :)

Sawyer + Emily | Palo Duro Canyon Engagement Session

The way Sawyer proposed to Emily was pretty sweet. They knew they were going to get married at some point so they were already touring wedding venues. Their hearts were set on the Fulford Barn outside of Brownfield, Texas. They walked around the property and eventually made it to the lawn where much to Emily's surprise, Sawyer had set up a table with pictures of the two of them, beautiful flowers, and other sweet memorabilia. He then got down on one knee and asked her to become his wife.

Audrey + Josh | Palo Duro Canyon Engagement Session

Audrey and Josh are some of those fun, easy going clients that make my job so easy and enjoyable. They claimed that they were "super awkward" at taking pictures but I don't believe it. Once we warmed up a bit, they were so natural and even when we had awkward moments, they just turned them into fun, laughter-filled photos. During their session we also had the amazing experience of coming up on a pair of aoudad sheep hanging out on some cliffs (photo below). I constantly see deer in Palo Duro Canyon but I have never been so close to one of these sheep and I had a little bit of an excited freak out moment. Thanks for bearing with me, Audrey and Josh, and for creating some fun memories with me!

Kailey + Michael | Engagement Photos in Palo Duro Canyon

I love this couple! It was yet another one of those sessions where I got too busy talking and getting to know them and started slacking on my actual job ;) We even talked for 15 minutes after the session was over. Kailey and Michael met at Nick's Fight Club, the gym where Michael works. The first day she was there he walked right up and talked to her. After several more times seeing each other at the gym, Michael eventually learned that Kailey LOVES Disney and he started quoting some of his favorite Disney lines to her. He even used a line from Mulan to ask her out for their first date.

Amy + Trevor | Colorful and Bright Fall Engagement Session

Amy and Trevor's engagement session was full of nonstop laughter, especially during the beginning when they were first getting their nerves out. I loved it. They are the kind of clients that I love being around, taking pictures of, and serving. There were times when we should have been taking pictures but we were talking too much!

Rachel + Matt | Engagement Session at Texas Tech University

I first met Rachel a few months ago when she booked me for her upcoming wedding and the first time I met Matt was during their engagement session. When I saw them together I instantly knew that they fit perfectly together. I mean, just look at them! Matt is from all over the United States but he moved to Lubbock to accept a job at Texas Tech's library. He then met Rachel at church and they fell in love.

Brenna + Landon | Autumn Santa Fe Wedding at The Club at Las Campanas

Brenna and Landon got married on the most perfect, not-a-cloud-in-the-sky, 65 degree day surrounded on all sides by New Mexican mountains. Brenna is from Tucson and Landon is from Texas so for them, Santa Fe was a place for them to meet in the middle. It was the place where they fell in love and the place where Landon would eventually propose to Brenna. About a year later, they became husband and wife in the one of the most beautiful places that I’ve seen.

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.

Sheridan + Jerry | Springtime Lubbock, Texas Engagement Photos

I knew I liked Sheridan and Jerry from day one. We met back in the fall when they booked me for their July 2017 wedding. The moment that Sheridan pulled out her wedding planning notebook was the moment that I knew I had found an ideal client and kindred spirit. She was so organized and on the ball! Being super Type A myself, it's fun to work with people that think like I do.

Hayley + Matt | Palo Duro Canyon Maternity Photo Session

I first met these two a couple of years ago when Matt proposed to Hayley right there in Palo Duro Canyon. It was the perfect place to return to for their maternity photos. I love being able to meet couples, see them get married, and then watch them turn into families. It reminds me how fast time moves and how important it is to remember those sweet, small moments.

Ashley + John | Early Spring Engagement Photos at Texas Tech

I'm so glad that Ashley, John, and I were finally able to meet up and do their engagement session! I say "finally" because all of us kept switching the date back and forth. We couldn't seem to find a date that stuck due to weather, work schedules, my shooting schedule, etc. But finally! We made it work and it was so worth it.
