Ben and Amanda | Amarillo Wedding Photography

dare i say that ben and amanda were one of my most favorite couples in my career thus far? every single aspect of their wedding day anchored itself with the union of their lives and their emerging family! it was small and intimate gathering of only their closest friends and family who joined them at the Kritser Ranch – rich with history of Ben’s family for over 100 years!  Meeting them beneath fall skies to witness their wedding is truly something that i will carry with me forever.


Amanda surprised her mother in law with a personalized handkerchief.
