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)

Merry Christmas, Baby (ft Leon Bridges)

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!

Lola and Armando’s Trinity River Audubon Center Wedding

Lola and Armando’s Trinity River Audubon Center wedding was simple and personal. They are a very outdoorsy couple, and are big fans of outer space and science (aka 100% my people). We had a little different routine for their wedding day in that we started immediately with their first look and portraits, rather than “getting ready” and at a venue like theirs, we had plenty of gorgeous light and scenery for portraits. They also had a couple of nerdy touches – such as the Game of Thrones inspired signs on their head table and a galaxy photo backdrop for their guests to use.

Another lovely personal touch was their use of a wish tree from their home. Guests were invited to write notes of wishes for Lola and Armando as they start this new chapter of their lives together. I managed to take a photo of Lola’s wish – “To grow old with Armando.”

Their ceremony was short and sweet, with handwritten vows and pledging to journey through life as equals. We are 100% here for #MissiontoMartinez! Congratulations to the lovely couple – we so enjoyed being your photographers.

Emily and Nick’s Durango, Colorado Photo Session

We met up with Emily and Nick at Baker’s Bridge in Durango, CO for a photo session. (My) Nick and I try to make it up to Colorado once a year during the summer months to escape the Texas heat, unwind, and become inspired by the mountains and lifestyle. Emily and I go way back knowing each other through mutual friends. It was so great to catch up while also capturing the two of them in their element: outside in the mountains with their two pups.

Our fingers are crossed to make it up to Colorado again soon! It’s always bittersweet to see mountains in the rear view mirror. We love adventures and road trips and are always up for a journey! You can view our couple’s portfolio here. If you’re a Texan wanting to escape the summer heat, let’s chat about booking a portrait session or elopement in the mountains :)

Meghan and Piotr’s Rooftop Event Spot Wedding

Meghan and Piotr’s wedding at Rooftop Event Spot was simple and no fuss, but that definitely didn’t detract from how fun it was! It’s always a great experience when couples stay true to themselves, and it was an honor to be asked to photograph this wedding. Piotr is a local Dallas videographer, and I love getting to work with fellow creatives.

One aspect that made this wedding special was featuring Piotr’s Polish family traditions during the reception! It made for such a lively dance party – so be sure to scroll down and see some moments from their reception!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Mokry! We are so happy for y’all.

I love photographing at Rooftop Event Spot for multiple reasons: it’s a gorgeous venue perfect for an intimate wedding; I’m from Plano; and having spent so much time working in Downtown Plano in my teenage years, it’s always interesting to reflect on where I am now compared to then. We are so glad to see Downtown Plano booming and are grateful to call DFW home!

We still have 2019 availability! Let’s talk about how we can preserve your memories today.
