Family portraits are such an important reminder of a wedding day but unfortunately, they can be one of the more stressful portions of the day. The last thing I want is for you to get the energy zapped out of you by family pictures (especially if bride and groom portraits are afterwards!). Here is my best advice for making sure family pictures go smoothly.Read More
I’ve said this before but I owe so much to Bethany. When I was first starting out in wedding photography about 4 years ago (I can’t believe it’s been that long!) she gave me a chance. She referred me to her friend who was about to get married. I shot that wedding and then a few more that Bethany referred me to. Then those weddings led to many more. I don’t know what caused Bethany to be such an evangelist for me but I will always be indebted to her for it.Read More
Ty and Hannah’s wedding was one for the books.
It was totally, 100%, completely different from any other wedding that I have photographed and that is a beautiful thing! It was refreshing, real, and so much fun.
Hannah and Ty came from Houston to get married in Palo Duro Canyon simply because they love it. They had tons of bridesmaids and groomsmen and family members come up to support them because they are very clearly loved and cherished by many. And I can see why. Both Hannah and Ty have something about themselves that attracts people to them like a magnet. They light up the room when they walk in and I noticed that right from the start.Read More
Emily and Jeremy are a couple of those clients that have become friends to Mason and I (Mason was their wedding DJ and they actually found him before me). Throughout their whole wedding planning process with us, they were so gracious and so inviting. Their wedding did not feel like work to us - it felt like a fun party with friends. Jeremy even invited me to stay longer and I wish I could have!Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
Kayce and Conner's wedding was filled with wildflowers, smiles, and amazing people. I talked about this a little bit in her bridal shoot blog but I have to reiterate: Kayce and Conner are the best of people and they clearly surround themselves with people just like them. From a photographer's standpoint, the couple's relaxed attitudes made their wedding day so special and meaningful. I could sense their trust and that allowed me to do my best work.Read More
Kayleigh and Aaron met in a grocery store and eight months later, they're married. It really can happen that spontaneously and quickly. Along with Kayleigh's son, they are now a family and they could not be happier. Their joy is contagious.Read More
I just love the way that Lauren's bright red hair pops against the deep autumn colors of the Wolflin neighborhood in Amarillo, Texas. She is a vibrant and beautiful bride! As I've said, the hardest thing about bridal sessions is holding off on posting images until after the wedding and with Lauren, I had to wait over a month! It was hard but now that she's married and her husband has seen her in her gorgeous wedding dress, I can show her bridal shoot off to the world.Read More
Sometimes it makes me a bit nervous when the first time I meet a bride and groom is on their wedding day. We haven't built up that relationship and that rapport. But with Bailey and Tanner, it didn't matter one bit. They were instantly comfortable and unbelievably photogenic. They are one of those couples that I suspect might be secretly models.Read More
Stacy and Zach planned the perfect wedding. Their Dallas affair at Trinity River Audubon Center is the perfect example of what happens when a bride carefully selects her vendors and then trusts them to execute her vision for her wedding day. The couple was able to enjoy their wedding day because they knew everything was taken care of.Read More
These two are a couple of my favorites. A lot of people ask me if I know my clients before they hire me and the answer is no 98% of the time. However, sometimes clients come along that I feel like I have known for a long time. Callie and Kyle are a couple of clients like that. Their engagement session went so smoothly and comfortably and I could have photographed them for a couple more hours easily - except without the mosquitos that literally ate me alive ;)Read More
