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 […]

I first learned about David Bowie around junior year of high school. That was in 2004, and it was all the rage to make CD mixes for friends and significant others. I received one of these mixes and Starman was one of the songs. Sure, I had seen Labyrinth as a kid and knew who […]

Heather and Jason’s Tarrant County Courthouse elopement took place on their 18 year dating anniversary on their lunch break from work. This was the first time it was just me and the couple working together! I was struck at how even though it was just a casual, laid back wedding, it was still very emotional […]

Hey y’all. This is a crazy stressful time right now, and none of us know if or when or how it’s going to get better. It’s cheesy but these are uncharted waters and we are in it together. Quick update: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we are not accepting bookings with more than 30 […]

Jillian and John’s wedding day was a crisp, outdoor, November evening at Sanford House in Arlington, Texas. I always love working with fellow UTA Alumni, and venturing back to the town where I met my friends and became independent. We opted to take all bride and groom portraits after dark, so be sure to scroll […]

Lola and Armando had a little bit nerdy wedding at one of the most stunning venues in DFW – Trinity River Audubon Center. They incorporated a few Game of Thrones references, and also wanted to highlight being fans of outer space. I can’t help but be reminded of this quote: “For small creatures such as […]

Rachel and Robert’s Aristide Flower Mound wedding day had absolutely perfect weather, despite the fact that the morning of their wedding all of DFW was woken up by a crazy loud hail storm. You have to love Texas Spring! But by the afternoon (and when it was time for Rachel and Robert’s portraits), the sun […]

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 […]

Abilene Wedding Photographer

Sarah and Nick, what can I say? They are two glass blowing artists completely meant for each other. (My) Nick and I ventured out to Abilene, TX last weekend to document their wedding day. They fully embraced the Christmas decorations at their church that they also attend. Sarah and I go way back from painting […]

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 […]
