Mark + Madi | Fun and Playful Engagement Photos in Amarillo, Texas

Just know that if you decide to book your engagement/wedding photos with me, I’m definitely going to make you hug, kiss, and cuddle, and I might even make you dance in the street or run down the road holding hands with each other. Fair warning! Madi and Mark were one of my most FUN couples to date! I never had to prompt them to laugh at each other or giggle. It was so natural for them. Their smiles, their hugs are genuine and they come from a place of pure love for each other. They are best friends. They went along with all of my crazy plans and had a great time while doing it.

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.

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.

Channing + Josiah | Palo Duro Canyon Engagement Session

I knew I liked Channing and Josiah when Channing first emailed me saying that my wedding photography promo video made her cry. I thought to myself, "She gets it. She understands the value of having amazing wedding photos." How could I not want to work with someone like that? Then, during our initial meeting they were still undecided on the package they would choose and they told me they would pray about it. I love that Josiah and Channing have a spirit-led life. Talk about my ideal clients.

Sherstin + Andrew | Proposal Shoot in Palo Duro Canyon

This was a proposal that I didn't even see coming. Usually, a guy will contact me and book a "couple's session" for him and his girlfriend. Then, at some point during the session he will surprise her by proposing. Andrew, however, wanted to make sure his proposal to Sherstin was a complete surprise. She actually first contacted me and booked the session. They have dated for five years and she just wanted some sweet pictures with her and her boyfriend. Little did she know, Andrew would quickly mention to me at the very beginning of the session that he brought an engagement ring! I told him I would give him a sign when it was a good time to propose.  He hijacked the photo shoot in the best possible way.

Alyssa + Patrick | Palo Duro Canyon Engagement Photos

These two adorable people have spent six years together (four of which were long distance) and they are now getting married later this year.  They are so amazing together and they are as sweet as they look. Their engagement session in Palo Duro Canyon was full of real laughter (my favorite!) and lots of cuddling for warmth. Though it was a breezy, crisp January day, their smiles are what make the pictures look warm.
