Mercy and Steve’s Gilley’s Dallas Wedding took place at The Loft at Gilley’s and perfectly fit Mercy’s modern, industrial vibe that she was going for! A little backstory: Mercy and I were neighbors back at our time at UT Arlington. In the years since, she’s started a thriving hair styling business, and we’ve remained friends […]

Garden of the Gods Elopement

 Jessica and Derek’s Garden of the Gods Elopement in Colorado Springs was an adventure for the books! Jessica contacted me earlier this year via Instagram and asked if I travel for elopements. (The answer to that question is always yes!) Our consultation was two hours long, and I left worrying about if I revealed too […]

piazza in the village

Elise and Scott’s Piazza in the Village wedding had so many small, personal touches and a knockout color palette! I met Elise at the Piazza in the Village Open House (it was my first open house ever, and I won’t lie – I was a ball of NERVES!), but after meeting and working with her, […]

engagement

Sarah and Nick met up with me at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano, TX early last Sunday morning for their engagement photos. They met while studying glass blowing at UTA, and now they both work as professional glass blowers! How cool is that? Sarah and I go way back – all the way […]

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 […]

Ariel and Matt tied the knot with a beautiful Marty Leonard Chapel wedding ceremony and intimate wedding reception at Matt’s parent’s home.  It was such a treat to photograph for a group of friends we’ve already worked with in the past (see Evelyn and Mike’s Perot Museum Wedding here). So when Ariel reached out about […]

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 […]

tarrant county courthouse

Marsha and Tony’s Tarrant County Courthouse wedding day was a special one! Marsha shared with me that she was an nontraditional bride and even reserved an adorable Air bNb with plenty of natural light to get ready together with Tony and a couple of their close friends. We then made our way to the Fort […]

Averi and Prince’s Joe T. Garcia’s Wedding Reception started off at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens, and the celebration continued at the famous Joe T. Garcia’s with delicious fajitas, margaritas, and dancing the night away. Check out the simply romantic first part of their wedding day here! I wanted to highlight the benefit of hiring […]

Averi and Prince’s Fort Worth Botanic Garden wedding: what can I say except that they were an absolutely delightful couple to work with throughout their whole journey. Their wedding day started out with a forecast of rain but magically stopped every time we planned on taking photos outside and for their ceremony! Averi reserved the […]
