Gabby and Brandon’s engagement photos were taken at the same garden where Brandon proposed! Brandon and Gabby showed up completely authentic and true to themselves for the session: they wore their favorite band t-shirt and ate a sushi picnic from their favorite restaurant, complete with a champagne toast. Capturing people in those moments right as […]

I have been spoiled with the most incredible circle of friends – Sarah Jane (SJ) and Zach are part of my bubble, and they’re just the best people. SJ has dreamed her whole life of owning a horse…and she made that dream come true (all while working her tail off in PA school – get […]

These two chose to spend […]

Speaking of outfits – Stephanie and Michael embraced their quirky style for this engagement session in the Magnolia area of Fort […]

Emily and Nick graciously offered to pose for portraits on our trip to Durango, CO. I’m always inspired by visiting new places with different landscapes from DFW, Texas!
