Kelsey | Palo Duro Canyon Bridal Session

When Kelsey told me that she wanted to take her bridals in Palo Duro Canyon, I told her that she was brave! But I was excited because despite the dirtiness that can sometimes come with the canyon, it is oh-so-beautiful for bridal pictures. Kelsey sure can rock those fierce, serious looks and she has a beautiful smile. Talk about a win-win :) I so enjoyed her bridal session, even when, in typical Texas Panhandle fashion, a dirt storm came in and cut it short. But of course I took advantage of that moment to give Kelsey some really unique photos.

Emily + Jeremy | Wedding at Panhandle Charm in Amarillo, Texas

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!

Melody + Cris | Destiny's Garden Wedding

Melody and Cris's wedding was honestly so peaceful and relaxing and that's not something I can often say about a wedding. It is the absolute best when a couple plans for plenty of time for photos because this allows them to relax and breathe rather than feel rushed before the ceremony. They even had time to exchange letters with one another and pray with their wedding party. 

Melody and Cris are so natural together and so at peace in each other's presence. Anyone can see that. I know that they are in for a lifetime of nothing but joy <3

Kelli + Bradley | Elegant Country Wedding in Vega, Texas

One of the most beautiful parts of Kelli and Bradley's wedding day came right before the ceremony. The bride and groom had yet to see each other and they decided to pray not only with each other but also with their parents flanking them on the sides, holding their hands. It was a beautiful expression of the love and support that their parents have given them so far and will continue to give them throughout their married life. It was wonderful to know that Kelli and Bradley have such good examples of Godly marriages to look to.

Amy + Trevor | St. Mary's Catholic Cathedral Wedding

Amy and Trevor had a joy that just radiated from them on their wedding day. They are one of those couples that cares most about simply being married to each other - the busy-ness and craziness that often accompany a wedding day were not present. The dress, the venue, the flowers, even me, the photographer, were secondary to what was most important - getting married.

Logan | Springtime Amarillo Bridal Photos

Logan's bridal session was my very first one after maternity leave. After 6 weeks off, it was a wonderful session to dip my toes back in the water! Luckily we were blessed with the most perfect, sunny Spring evening that the Texas Panhandle could give us. And luckily Logan is ridiculously gorgeous! I mean, look at this girl's pretty eyes. After her shoot, I was even more excited to photograph her and Marc's wedding at Spirit Ranch in Lubbock.

Madison | Amarillo, Texas Bridal Photos

Madison is one of the sweetest brides I’ve had the pleasure of working with <3 I LOVE bridal sessions because they give brides a chance to try out their whole wedding look before the wedding day and it allows me to create some keepsakes that moms especially love. Bridal sessions are so timeless and I love to think about a bride looking at her photos 25 years from now - possibly alongside her own daughter. It’s a really special thing.
