I recently had a client ask me how I ensure authenticity in my work and it was actually something I’ve never been asked before — certainly nothing I really put concrete words to! A few weeks ago, I asked my Instagram tribe to give me three words they thought best described my photography and authenticity […]

5 ways to ensure authenticity in your photos

August 8, 2017

I’m not even sure what to say about this shoot. It started as just a small labor of love, wanting to do an inspirational shoot in my hometown last summer. I found this gorgeous model, Maria, who has now become a good friend, and teamed up with a few other local artists to pull this […]

Engagement sessions seem to be the first thing people want to cut from their wedding photography budget. They wonder what on earth they’ll do with all those photos of them when the true photo-sharing event is on the horizon: their wedding. Or they have a a friend with a nice camera and think they’ll just […]

4 reasons to do an engagement shoot

July 18, 2017

We all know there is a wealth (er, overabundance) of wedding-planning information out there for brides on sites like The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Wedding Wire, Martha Stewart, Brides … the list goes on and on. If you’ve been a bride for more than five minutes, you know how overwhelming it can be to sift […]

5 questions to ask your wedding photographer

July 12, 2017

Back in the spring, I had the extreme honor of doing an editorial shoot with BenBella, a publishing company based in Dallas. I love food and food styling, cooking (of course!), and eating plant-based so this project was right up my alley. I thought it’d be a fun way to kick off the weekend by […]

Foodie Friday: BenBella Vegan

July 7, 2017

  Jen is one of those brides who I knew from our early emails that we would hit it off. She was upbeat, kind, and ready to share she and Ben’s story with me! One of the reasons I do what I do is to tell the story of the beginning of marriages and Jen […]

June 30, 2017

I have a crazy goal this year. I’m going to read 50 books. Let me explain. This is not a New Years resolution. I didn’t write this on my 2017 goals on December 31 and then carefully plan out which books I was going to read and how I was going to conquer it all. […]

  Courtney and Andy were some of the most laid-back and easy-to-talk-to clients I’ve had so far this year. Their late April wedding took place at the DEC on Dragon in the Dallas Design District against sweeping views of the Dallas skyline. These two planned a heck of a party and it was so clear […]

A modern spring wedding in the Dallas Design District | Mr. & Mrs. Sholl

June 23, 2017

The temperatures are rising, skin is browning (or burning!), and vacations planned in the long cold months of winter are finally on the horizon! Summer is such a glorious time, is it not? What is it about summer that makes us want to live life a little slower and shrug off all the “have to […]

Summer 2017 playlist

June 20, 2017

I remember planning my wedding in the spring/summertime and being so frustrated that all the blogs were showing spring/summer weddings. How on earth was I supposed to find inspiration for a winter wedding?! Thankfully, I managed but I do wish the wedding inspiration world operated a bit more like the fashion industry. Alas, here is […]
