Jenna and Eric’s Ennis Bluebonnet Engagement Session

Jenna and Eric’s bluebonnet engagement session took place during the magical time of year in Texas when the bluebonnets bloom in late March/early April. The town of Ennis, Texas has trails of bluebonnets that are one of a kind with bluebonnets as far as you can see. I always love seeing fellow nature lovers out and about. If you grew up in Texas, you know that stopping on the side of the road to sit in a patch of bluebonnets and smile for a photo is a rite of passage for many families. The fields in Ennis are a bit more picturesque than the side of a highway (and safer, too!) When Jenna asked about taking engagement photos there, I was 100% in! We all decided during their photo session that they were Texan AF.

Jenna and Eric officially tied the knot at the Tarrant County Courthouse in Fort Worth, and y’all know I love a courthouse wedding! If you’re wondering whether or not I would love to photograph your tiny wedding, the answer is always yes.

We still have open dates in 2020, if you’re looking for an easy going, professional, and gently assertive photographer (important to wrangle family members and capture all of the details you’d like) reach out ASAP to discuss hiring us to document your wedding.

In 2020, I look forward to sharing more of my past work along with tips and tricks for brides and other photographers.

Rachel and Nate’s Fort Worth Engagement Session

Ok, here’s the thing about this Fort Worth engagement session. Rachel is my sister-in-law. I’ve known her for almost 13 years, and in those years, she’s become one of my closest friends. So I. HAVE. FEELINGS. About this post.

Rachel moved to New York City several years ago, and a few years after that, we met Nate for the first time when he came to Texas for Thanksgiving. I remember thinking that night about what a great match he is for her. They’re both whip smart but also incredibly goofy (as you can see in the below photos).

One week from today, they are going to say their vows to one another in front of their close friends and family. Nick and I are in the bridal party, too! And we absolutely cannot wait to welcome Nate officially in the family (but let’s be honest, he’s been a member of the family for some time now!)

We opted to take their engagement photos in Fort Worth. The Lumen Room Fort Worth provided a stunning background (and a plan B option in case the weather was bad), and then we headed over to take a few photos at the Kimbell Art Museum. Little did we know it was also Homecoming, so we dodged quite a few high school groups taking photos. We made it work though!

Congratulations and welcome to the family, Nate!!

I haven’t been keeping up as much as I should with my blog, but if you’re curious about what we’re up to, give me a follow on instagram! 2020 is looking fierce so far, so definitely reach out if you’re interested in having us photograph your wedding, engagement, or event.

Rachel’s hair and makeup were provided by the wonderful WAFU Artistry.

Katie and Greg’s Bishop Arts Engagement Session

Katie and Greg’s wedding is just over the horizon and before the celebrations begin, I wanted to share a couple of my favorite photos from their engagement session. I’ve known Katie since my high school band days, so when she reached out to see if I’d photograph her wedding, I was extremely honored! I can’t express what a treat it is to work with someone I’ve known for over a decade. I had the best time photographing Katie and Greg while exploring the Bishop Arts District in Dallas, TX. I enjoyed capturing their laughter, love, and a bit of goofiness.

The wedding countdown has begun! 2 days!

We still have availability for some fall dates and are currently booking for 2020.

Tanner and Kim’s Fort Worth Engagement Session

Tanner and Kim’s Fort Worth engagement session – where should I start? I met them both working my first official photography job after graduating college with my BFA. Tanner and I worked in a large warehouse that processed marathon race photos. My job was to color correct photos for printing day in and day out, and I eventually upgraded to advanced Photoshop retouching along with a bit of graphic design. Tanner was technically my supervisor, but he and I became friends because we both shared the same taste in music and sense of humor. I also met Kim towards the beginning of working that job as well via Tanner’s and her group of amazing friends. At the time, I remember Tanner being super excited for her to move back to Fort Worth after she finished her degree in Austin. Additionally, I feel like we all became close friends when Tanner drummed for Nick’s band, Lindby, for awhile. These days, we all consider Tanner an honorary Lindby member since he occasionally provides AWESOME remixes, electronic collaborations, and production for them!

Here are links to a couple of my favorite tracks that Tanner worked on (this is not required listening – I’m just so proud and excited for my musically inclined friends)

When I first branched out on my own and decided to make this whole photography business thing work, Tanner and Kim were one of the first couples I ever photographed! So when it came time to celebrate their engagement, I reached out to see if they’d let me have the honor of taking their engagement photos. (They said yes!) We meandered around Fort Worth looking for the best light and then headed over to Trinity Park for some family portraits with their pup, Adelaide.

The Austin-based bachelor/bachelorette parties are done (and were such fun!), and tomorrow, Nick and I are SO EXCITED to attend their wedding as guests! We’ll be dancing the night away celebrating our good, good friends start this new chapter in life. Congratulations, Tanner and Kim!!!

Obligatory plug to say we’ve still got some Fall availability this year and would love to document your love!
