bride with green hair and groom in front of smoke bomb

When I saw the mood board for this shootout I was hooked. Bohemian disco theme? Tattoos? A gorgeous model with green hair? Something a little different from the cookie cutter wedding inspiration we usually see? Sign me up! Styled shoots are a bit of a mixed bag for me. I don’t want to perpetuate unrealistic […]

Cross Creek Ranch TX Wedding

Casey and Mike’s Cross Creek Ranch Texas Wedding took place on a frigid November day, but it was OK because we all like the cold! I have greatly enjoyed working with them over this past year, and it seems like every time these two come to town, the weather cools itself off. We ended up […]

Alyssa and Nick’s Dallas Elopement took place at Hub Streat in Plano, TX, after six years together. Three of those years were spent being engaged, and when I talked with Alyssa on the phone, she said they were ready to do this thing! There were so many lovely, heartfelt moments to capture throughout this day: […]

Molly and Dustin’s Room on Main wedding day was absolute perfection! In true Texas Spring fashion, we had a forecast of 100% rain, so we were prepared with several different backup plans and my trusty Dark Sky app on my watch. Luckily, their pre-wedding preparations were taking place in a penthouse at the iconic Joule […]

Molly and Dustin’s Bishop Arts Engagement session was an adventure! I’m a fan of cold winter weather, but I’m not going to complain that Dallas, TX decided to provide us with beautiful 75 degree weather in December! With Christmas decorations going up it provided for a great and festive backdrop for their portraits. There are […]

River Legacy Park is, hands down, one of my top 10 favorite parks in Dallas/Fort Worth. I used to go exploring there at my time while studying photography at UTA. There are many trails and views of the Trinity River that make the perfect background for photos. Lindsey and Brett met up with me to […]

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 […]

deep ellum engagement

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 […]

Bella Donna Chapel McKinney TX

Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney, TX could practically be in another country! 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, […]
