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!

Kevin and Heather | Amarillo Wedding Photographer

Kevin and Heather were married this past summer. I am so excited to be sharing these photos of their wedding day.

I was a complete ball of nerves the day of their wedding but they had the most calm and peaceful day i have ever experienced. When i arrived, the bridesmaids were ironing and assembling the last few floral touches. Heather walked in stunningly and just kinda took the breath out of the room.

What i’ve loved about Kevin and Heather is their comfort and ease with each other. We drove to their first look spot and as soon as he turned around, it was home. They laughed together and talked about their day and then Kevin would randomly stop her words with sweet little touches or kisses.

Their entire day was filled with joy and celebration. Weddings like these. Days like these. They just make my job so gratifying and humbling all at once. I love having the opportunity to work with couples that share their memories and lives with me. It is the most rewarding part of my job. At the end of the day, Kevin and Heather are dear sweet friends of mine – even showing up to my birthday dinner! Good people Great “clients” and a loving couple that i am completely honored to have captured their journey.

Kevin and Heather – thank you OH so much for being so amazing. I really cannot properly iterate how much it means to me that you put your trust and faith in little ol’ me and gave me the honor of photographing your wedding day. Knowing you is a joy and i know there are so many more amazing things in store for you both. I hope to see you more and more at each celebration. Thank you again for being great friends!
