I love weddings of all sizes and styles…but my heart beats just a little bit faster for intentional, heartfelt elopements. There’s just something about an intimate wedding that makes so much sense to me. Much less fuss, much more focus on what really matters: connection. Shanna and Caitlyn eloped at The Vintage Rail, a super […]

Judy and Britney met up with me early one morning to take their engagement photos, and while I had so much fun working with them, it turned out to be quite a learning experience for me! When Judy first contacted me, she let me know that her and her fiancé, Britney, are both deaf. With […]

Today I’m excited to be sharing this very merry un-wedding! This Alice in Wonderland themed wedding was unreal.  Megan and Patricia – two wildly delightful women – were married at The Grove in Aubrey, surrounded by loving people, lively colors, and a sea of quirky decor. It may have been rainy outside, but indoors? All […]

When clients book me for their engagement session, I’m immediately asked: where is the best place in DFW for photos? For Jarvis and Bethany, they really had the answers themselves: start the shoot at their brand-new home, then visit nearby Adriatica Village, nestled in the heart of McKinney.  I love when clients invite me into […]

Mandy and Kristin’s Harmony Chapel wedding took place on a perfect, 70 degree January day at Harmony Chapel in Aubrey, Texas. It was our first wedding of 2019 and was an absolutely wonderful way to start the year! Some of my favorite aspects of this wedding were: Mandy gifting Kristin a book of love letters […]

Ashley and Kristyn’s wedding at the Venue at 400 North Ervay was a truly memorable wedding day. They contacted me about a month ago and were planning their wedding quickly with the goal of starting a family in sight. And who doesn’t love last minute bookings? I’ve greatly enjoyed getting to know them these past […]

I don’t have a “favorite” type of wedding based any certain elements: size, location, expense, theme, etc. My favorite weddings are weddings that stay true to the couple. Susan and Kathy’s wedding day was truly an expression of their life, their love, and their families all coming together to celebrate their new union. It’s always […]

Olivia and Jessie’s engagement session took place the week after history was made, and marriage equality became the law of the land! On June 26, 2015, they joined countless other couples at the courthouse and are now legally married! They are having a ceremony and reception next year, so I think this can still be […]
