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 […]

It’s been a year. 365 days since I did one of the scariest things of my life. And 8,760 hours of following my dreams. Because a year ago I officially began my photography business. A year ago I had no idea what I was doing, but I did it. A year ago a sweet family […]

His hand trembled as he gripped the microphone. The voices around the room died down, and all eyes turned to the stage as the best man smiled at the new bride and groom. He took a deep breath, and then he began: “Trap, I have never been so happy for you”. His voice cracked, but he […]

The Dallas Arboretum is absolutely beautiful during the fall. From the bright flowers are always in full bloom, the golden sunlight that warms the place, and the pumpkins that are everywhere, it’s the perfect place to visit this time of year. Kids love seeing all the different things they have set up for each year’s […]

From the minute I met Tiffany and Chris, I knew they were going to be a fun couple to work with. They couldn’t stop smiling at each other, and I think Chris’ goal for the day was to keep Tiffany laughing the entire time. And y’all, he did. It was such an uplifting way to […]
