Abby | Class of 2018

To know and photograph this young lady is a treat. She has a quiet calm about her. But don’t be fooled. She has a contagious energy and is so down to earth and real.  In between laughs, I become better acquainted with this fierce young lady.

We met for photos a few weeks ago and I asked her what kind of setting she would like. She claimed to be an outdoorsy person and wanted to do more “naturey” kind of photos.

Let me make one thing clear…. Abby is NOT the outdoorsy kind. She is squeamish about most things like… grass. wind. bugs. you know…. stuff that is outside.

and i’m not afraid to call her out on it.

to be fair, however, she did get her hair stuck in the weeds. and I did let go of one of these weeds (¯\_(?)_/¯ ) and it smacked her right in the face. Abby… ok fine. I guess i’ll let you grow up and leave us. I have no doubt in my mind that anything that you set your mind to is within your reach. you have such a gentle soul but the kind of spirit that you have well bring so much joy and light to your world. I full trust that you have an impact to make on everyone around you. Thank you for sharing your senior year memories with me. I am forever grateful to know you and to have had the opportunity to hang out with you for an evening.

Beau and Kirsten | Wedding

Throughout the course of my career, I have photographed more than 200 weddings. And while I might say that each wedding day is similar to another…. each couple I photograph is unique and brings me different layers and kinds of joy.

Work with Beau and Kirsten last year was sweet and peaceful. I loved meeting them for their engagement photos. Beau made her smile nonstop. Kirsten constantly expresses love for Beau;  even in the smallest of gestures.

I love couples like this.

Their wedding day was just as charming; sweet celebrations and tender moments throughout. Here are just a few of those!

Beau and Kirsten! What a sweet day you both had. You are that #goals kind of couple and I am honored to have shared your special day with you!

Ben and Miranda | New York City Engagement Photographer

I brought finicky Texas weather to NYC with me last month.  We had planned to meet later in the week but the weather was forecasted to take a turn. So within an hour of landing in the Big Apple, I met with Ben and Miranda. We walked to this beautiful park with hidden gems around every corner.

Ben and Miranda barely noticed that I was there with a camera. They had so much fun laughing with each other and showing affection. We had a great time and I am so honored to have captured their engagement for them!

p.s. Ben and Miranda…

you are both a blast to be around! I had a great time exploring the park with you and hope to see you again and again in the future! I know you will enjoy marriage as much as you are enjoying your engagement!

Colton and Jessica | Engagement

These two. We were racing against the sun. Zipping around the falls area. Before we had even started their photos, Colton saw an emergency vehicle stuck in the mud. Without skipping a beat, he pulled over and assisted them. And while we sat in the car, waiting, Jessica gushed over how generous and selfless he is. It didn’t even matter to her that we were losing valuable time for photos…. because he was helping someone else.

The rest of our time together was so endearing. Colton and Jessica are a great fit. They love each other well and easily and without reserve. It was a great day photographing them and definitely a highlight of my month!

Colton and Jessica, thank you so much for sharing your engagement with me! It was such a joy to photograph you and laugh alongside you for an afternoon. I cannot wait to see what marriage brings for you both!
