The weather forecast for the day of Stephanie and Rich‘s wedding did not look good: Rainy, cold, windy. Such is fall in New Hampshire. We crossed our fingers and hoped for the best and I silently prayed for good weather the night before. And, as luck would have it, the rain cleared up by noon […]

A colorful fall New England wedding

May 8, 2019

If you’ve planned a wedding before (or been close to someone who’s planned a wedding), you’ve probably heard someone say, ‘everyone has their wedding story.’ By “wedding story,” people mean the thing — or two, if your luck is really bad — that went awry on the wedding day. I love when people ask this […]

Our wedding story: Icemageddon 2013 | Dallas, TX

Dec 7, 2018

Jill and Ryan’s wedding was one for the books. It was a warm spring day in April at the Stone Crest Venue in McKinney, filled with friends and family who came to celebrate their marriage. Their day was filled with love and a lot of celebrating. Jill was the epitome of classic bridal elegance in […]

It’s with mixed emotions I bring to you the last installment in my summer vendor spotlight series. We’ve been chatting with some of my favorite Dallas and Fort Worth wedding planners, florists, makeup artists, and calligraphers to find more about who they are, what they do, and how they love and serve their clients so […]

I am so excited to share with you my summer vendor spotlight series! I’ve had this idea in my head for a long time and maternity leave seemed like the perfect time to do it. Over the next few months, you’ll be meeting some of my favorite Dallas and Fort Worth wedding planners, florists, makeup […]

VENDOR SPOTLIGHT | Karli Jones of Ivory and Vine Event Co.

Jun 15, 2018

This past weekend, I was shooting a wedding with a friend and the videographer asked if, with how good cell phone cameras are getting, we thought we’d be replaced by them. It’s an interesting question and honestly one that’s circled around for awhile. I cringe every time I see the Apple commercials that make everyone […]

Why professional photography is still worth the investment

Apr 17, 2018

Emily and Michael’s winter wedding at First Baptist Dallas and the Hall on Dragon was such an intimate and joyful celebration if I’ve ever seen one. The day was frigid with an off-and-on drizzle but that didn’t stop the pair from enjoying the heck out of their day. They were both so relaxed and peaceful, […]

I don’t even know where to start with Danielle and TJ’s beautiful summer wedding at Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa in Lake Arrowhead, California. These college sweethearts live in Dallas but Danielle’s family has a lake house on Lake Arrowhead so it only made sense for them to tie the knot overlooking the gorgeous water. […]

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

I’m often asked why wedding pros do styled shoots. Brides can often feel misled when they see an amazing photo on Instagram, thinking it’s a real wedding, and then being disappointed to find out that not only was it a planned shoot but it’s something they could never afford. It’s a great question and honestly, […]
