Chris and Nick’s Dallas Elopement took place at a park in Arlington called the Drying Beds. They take frequent trips there to walk and let their dog (and honorary bridal party member) Caju run around and play freely. I love that they chose such a personal location – so when they return they always have […]

Lindsay and Mariano’s Magnolia Terrace Wedding took place on Friday the 13th. For most people, this date symbolizes bad luck, but to Lindsay and Mariano, it’s actually a date that is meaningful and special to them. Now, it’s officially their anniversary! Their wedding day was simple, vibrant, and had a touch of a whimsical charm. […]

McKinney Flour Mill

Lora and Allan’s wedding ceremony took place at the Church of Christ on McDermott Road, and their reception was held at The McKinney Flour Mill in Mckinney, TX. Allan’s love of cat shirts and Lora’s love of Parks & Recreation and 30 Rock made it into their wedding vows which, as an appreciator of all […]

Bella Donna Chapel

Bella Donna Chapel McKinney is a lovely wedding venue located in McKinney, TX, a northern Dallas suburb. Leilani and Kevin had already had a pre-wedding photo session with me, but that didn’t take away any of the specialness of their wedding day. When Leilani initially met with me, she told me they were planning on […]

Lora and Allan’s Deep Ellum engagement session took place on a foggy February morning earlier this year. They were absolute troopers meeting up with me so early on a Sunday morning! I am not a morning person but Deep Ellum is one of those places where it’s worth it to meet up early. For one […]

It’s an absolutely stunning venue to get married in, especially if you want to experience what feels like a European-style chapel right here in North Texas. Leilani and Kevin decided to do a pre-wedding session with me when we first met since their […]

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, […]

A Perot Museum wedding. When Evelyn initially contacted me, I was so excited at the prospect of photographing a wedding at this amazing museum. I’m a huge fan of science and found that when we visited this museum it brought back the joyful feeling of being a kid. Why NOT get married there? Evelyn and […]

I have really loved living close to Denton and also be a Denton Wedding Photographer. Amie and Joe’s laid back, no frills wedding day started out at Oak Street Drafthouse (one of our favorite places) for a beer and a few photos around the Denton square! We then made our way back to their close […]
