Dramatic title much? If you know me, that’s kind of my MO. I’m a sensitive type 4 on the enneagram personality type, so I have BIG FEELINGS. And when COVID hit and sent my industry into a tailspin, I definitely had the terrible, helpless feeling that so many others had. I don’t remember where I […]

I started my business five years ago this spring. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to photograph many weddings of couples who are crazy about each other. During the wedding planning process, it’s not only a joy to get to know couples but their families as well! I believe that wedding days are important, yes, […]

The Texas Wedding Season is about to be upon us! I’m lucky enough to be very busy coming up in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please enjoy some photographs from our recent trip to Durango, Colorado. There aren’t enough words to convey how truly majestic the landscape is or how wonderful this trip with […]

We did it! On December 19, 2015, Nick and I officially tied the knot at the Old Bedford School! After helping our wonderful couples plan their weddings (and absorbing some of their knowledge and experience), our day honestly went off without any major hiccups! Besides me being incredibly sleep deprived due to a combination of […]

Labor Day weekend was spent visiting New York City. This was my first time visiting, and I was completely awe struck the entire time. Nick’s sister, Rachel, and her boyfriend, Nate, were the best tour guides ever. I couldn’t help saying (multiple times), “This is just like the movies!” We were so lucky to experience […]

Nick and I had the amazing opportunity to spend a week in Durango, Colorado over the summer! It was the perfect retreat from the Texas heat while also being an epic adventure. After driving over 2,000 miles, it became pretty clear that we make excellent road trip partners! Our first stop was at Cadillac Ranch […]

 2015 is already off to a great start with my brand new website theme! I want to embrace simplicity and let the photographs speak for themselves. It’s still a work in progress, but I have a very good feeling about the direction it’s headed. We ended 2014 with several delightful family sessions :) The Penn […]

This past year, I have had the joy and privilege to work with wonderful couples, their families, and their friends on one of the most important and memorable days of their lives. Sometimes, when out shooting these joyous events, Nick and I capture candid photographs of each other. Sometimes it’s just to perform a task […]

Nothing says it’s Saturday afternoon like a post from the archives! For the first week of 2012, Nick, Gary (his dad), Rachel (his sister), and I had the amazing opportunity to visit the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii. Nick’s mom, Beki, had been living there for six months interning at the Surfing Goat Dairy. If […]

Here is a little appreciation post about our cat, Niles.  He showed up in front of our apartment complex two years ago, and a neighbor caught him and put him in a kennel by the front office asking for a home. The very first moment we saw him, he essentially adopted us. This photo was […]
