It was a warm, humid spring day. Anticipation was in the air, and smiles came easily to everyone’s faces. The moment we had been waiting for was finally here. I had watched Ethan search for his future wife for years. He had waited patiently to meet Audrey, and from the moment I first saw them […]

My first job in high school was as a waitress at a local all-you-can-eat cafe. I was in charge of filling (and refilling) drinks, bussing tables and running the cash register. It was a lot of work, but I loved it. I’d end the day exhausted and my feet would be killing me, but there […]

In Texas, taking pictures with the bluebonnets is more than just a fun photo op. It’s something that we HAVE to do. Like how you close your eyes when you sneeze. Or when you have to clap after hearing “the stars at night are big and bright”. It’s engrained in our blood. So you can […]

John drove around to three different locations before finally proposing to Hannah. First the park he has originally planned on going to was closed. Then there was no parking at the Margaret Hunt Bridge. […]

I’ve always been interested in pregnancy and births. When I was younger I loved watching “A Birth Story” on TLC, and my interest only grew when I became pregnant with my sweet baby boy. While I navigated the nine months of carrying James, I watched so many birthing videos, read article after article about labor, […]

I invited over 400 guests to my wedding. It’s one of my favorite things to share with couples when we meet for wedding consultations. The look of shock that crosses their face always makes me laugh. It’s still hard to believe we had such a large wedding after shooting so many over the past couple […]

As Mason read his vows to Stachia, I had to wipe a tear from my eye. He was beaming. His eyes were full of his love and adoration for his bride. And he was so excited to finally call her his wife. After four years of dating, friendship had turned to romance, and they were […]

Growing up, I loved Beauty and the Beast. I think it’s because I felt like I could relate so much to Belle. She was quiet, yet strong willed. Her head was always buried in a book. And she loved her dad so much. So when Stachia told me she was using Beauty and the Beast […]
