It’s hard to believe I’ve been making seasonal playlists for almost four years. Well, I actually did it a lot in college before the advent of Spotify but then life gets busy and it’s not as easy to listen to free music and playlists don’t happen. I love me some Pandora but Spotify is one […]

Winter 2018 playlist

OK, I’m calling this an engagement session because technically Shannon and Micheal were not married when we did the shoot … Though their wedding was just a few hours after! You might remember that I almost didn’t go on an international trip last year but because of this girl’s wedding, we had an amazing opportunity […]

SHANNON & MICHEAL | Engagement session | BARCELONA

Jan 26, 2018

I’ve had so much fun writing about engagement sessions this month for all my blog readers. The hardest thing about engagement sessions — and what I get asked about the MOST from my clients — is deciding what to wear. These are photos you will have for the rest of your life; they’ll live on […]

What to wear for your engagement session

Jan 23, 2018

Trent and Nicole are high school sweethearts and very talented athletes. Both played baseball/softball at UTSA in college and now that they’ve graduated, they’re moving onto the big leagues of marriage (OK, I couldn’t help myself). They are both so laidback and fun to be around. Their session right before Thanksgiving was a breeze! Unfortunately […]

Ohh Pinterest. I have such a love-hate relationship with you. I love how inspiring you can be but I hate how time-wasting you are and how you can set our expectations way too high. Am I alone in this?? OK, I’m being a bit dramatic but I really do love Pinterest for planning your wedding […]

How to use Pinterest to plan your engagement session

Jan 16, 2018

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is being able to travel to new places and see things you wouldn’t normally see. It also means travel back home and I am so glad I was able to go back to New Hampshire for Steph and Rich’s engagement session at The Falls in Hampton […]

STEPH & RICH | New Hampshire engagement session

Jan 12, 2018

I remember sitting down at the end of 2016 and thinking 2017 was going to be an awesome year. 2016 was rough. I worked full-time for three quarters of the year while trying to run my business, have a healthy marriage, see my friends and family, and finish paying off my student loan debt. But […]

What I did in 2017 … and what I’m planning to do in 2018

Jan 9, 2018

2017 was a crazy year. It was my first year as a full-time photographer and I feel like my skills grew so much over the past 12 months. I got to travel to a lot of different places and when I look back, most of my weddings were outside of Dallas proper! From Austin to […]

2017 RECAP: Weddings

Jan 3, 2018

At the end of each year, I like to sit down and look at my body of work from the previous 365 days. I love reliving memories of weddings and fun engagement sessions, and I love seeing how I’ve grown in my skills, tried new things, and pushed myself. First up in my series of […]

2017 RECAP: Engagement sessions

Jan 2, 2018

Emily and Michael are the type of people who make others happier just being around them. Their joy was so contagious that I left the session in great mood, smiling ear to ear. The two college sweethearts were engaged over Labor Day weekend at Lakeside Park in Dallas so it only made sense to head […]
