Meegan and Brenda’s Engagement Session

I am so happy to finally share Meegan and Brenda’s engagement photos! When I first met with Meegan and Brenda, I almost instantly felt like we were all kindred spirits. These two are so obviously smitten with each other, and truly care about the world we all live in and are both active members of Human Rights Campaign.

We opted to take their photos at Whiskey Ranch in Fort Worth, Texas, as this is where their wedding reception will be taking place.

We are very excited to work their wedding coming up very soon!

I loved that they wanted at least one photo in their HRC shirts! As a LGBTQ+ friendly photographer this made my heart and soul so happy. Any chance I can get to support my fellow activists, I take.

Getting married in 2020? Let’s talk!

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.

Yazmine and Preston’s Wedding – Hidden Pines Highland Village

Yazmine and Preston’s wedding at Hidden Pines Highland Village took place one week ago today. (Happy one week anniversary, you two!) We were so honored to capture this truly special day.

These two avid Texas Rangers fans were surrounded by close to 300 of their friends and family and celebrated the start of this new chapter of their lives with a taco bar, cheesecake bites (yum!), and an excellent dance party. To top it off, Yazmine’s mom and grandmother also created all of the beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets.

Katie and Greg’s Wedding

It has been such a joy working with Katie and Greg as they’ve been planning their Plano wedding. Katie and I go way back: all the way to high school when both of my parents were her band teachers! I first met Greg at their engagement session and couldn’t be happier for the two of them. They adore each other, they’re both such creative spirits (Greg is a professional music composer, and Katie is an artist), and they definitely have a bit of fun goofiness together as well.

The wedding day finally arrived on a surprisingly pleasant, summer day. Venia Flowers provided stunning details that were such a sophisticated touch. I also had so much fun getting to know (and to catch up with) Katie and Greg’s friends. Congratulations to the happy couple!
