Jamie & Casey

Jamie & Casey were married at the amazing St. Thomas Aquinas church in Dallas. Something about this church is so beautiful!

This couple is so warm and comfortable together, and I really enjoyed finding that their big Italian families are the same way. We really loved our evening with you documenting your big day!

Congrats to you guys!

Mary & Michael

Something about Mary and Michael's wedding day was truly unique to them. Sure there was a tux, and a white dress, and a big beautiful church (Lovers Lane Methodist). There was cake, and champagne, and some dancing (at the Starlight Room), but still it was different. I'm still not sure I can put my finger on exactly what made this day stand out to me, but it did. Everything done traditionally, but with a twist that was indicative of Mary and Michael's love, sense of humor, and outlook on life. Hmmm, is that all vague enough for you? Oh well, here's a snippet of their day!

Nicole & Tristan

We traveled to Austin to document Nicole and Tristan's wedding at the beautiful Vintage Villas on Lake Travis. These two have such an emotional connection it was infectious. I cried along with them at least 3 times that day. Just being there to capture their love for each other sucked me in. sniffsniff...I love my job.

A big shout-out to Michelle Peyronet Porter with Peyronet Photography for being my second shooter this day!

Sasha & Chris

Sasha and Chris were married at one of our favorite "unfound" locations... The Garden Manor B&B in downtown Grapevine. They decided to have a "first sight" before the ceremony so we could get all the pictures done while there was still good sunlight. We had some great playtime b/c of it and I know Sasha would tell you it really helped her nerves!

You guys are so obviously meant to be, we were just honored to capture it all for you!

Jenna & Brennan

Jenna and Brennan were married at the beautiful Royal Lane Baptist Church and partied the night away at Bent Tree Country Club. This couple is surrounded by so much love and support from their family and friends, it was hard not to get caught up in it ourselves! Everyone made us feel like part of the family and it really allowed us to get in there and capture the true emotion of their day. Congrats to you all!

Belinda & Robert

I think one of the most unique aspects of Belinda & Robert's wedding certainly had to be the ceremony. Almost a full hour in length and spanning 2 levels of the Gaylord Atrium, it was a memorable and emotional occasion. Belinda wanted to be sure she had time to enjoy the moments, and not have one of those 15 minute ceremonies that is over before it began. Oh no, she had a ceremony they will remember for years! A true celebration of their union! We loved capturing it all for you guys.... congrats!

Meredith & John

Meredith and John opted for a casual daytime wedding and reception at First Baptist Dallas. This couple loves to have fun and laugh, and their love for each other and God is so contagious! I found my own cheeks tired by days end from smiling with them all day long. This day was truly a joyous occasion, I don't think anyone could disagree with that. Besides, how can you not love a woman who looks as amazing as she does in that dress and headpiece?

Kristin & Stoney

The Rockwall Wedding Chapel was the scene of much joy and revelry in August. After toying with the idea of a destination wedding, Kristin and Stoney decided to just make it a rowdy family affair in their hometown.

Everyone present loved being there, you could tell. From the chuckles shared during the ceremony, to the auctioning off of the bride to the highest bidder, the evening was full of fun and family. Thanks guys, we had such fun being a part of it all!

Jennifer and Trace

Jennifer and Trace held their ceremony and reception at the El Dorado Country Club in McKinney. This was the first time I had been there and it was so great! The rugged feel of the club TOTALLY fit with Jennifer and Trace's style, and selfishly... it made for some great pictures!

All their rowdy A&M buddies made for a great party and everyone had a blast! Thanks to Wendy Kidd with Each and Every Detail for making a flawless day!

Jaylynn & Ryan

This day gave new meaning to "hot fun in the summertime"... The wedding took place at the super-cute "Maple Manor" in Dallas. The ceremony was outdoors and the interior was all set up for the reception so the only place for portraits was... you guessed it... outdoors. You'd never know it was 100 degrees. That glow is definitely the glow of love! :) You guys were such fun, and we enjoyed it all... hot or not!

Emily & Andrew

Emily booked with me so long ago now I feel like she's almost family! We've done Bridals, Engagements, and now finally the big day! With this couple there is no denying that everything was "right". Everyone was so at peace with this day. It's was like it was the culmination of a commitment made long ago, and everyone knew it was just, well... "right"! It was such fun to be there with you all on such a great day!

Suzanne & Chris in Tyler...

We traveled to Tyler for the awesome wedding of Suzanne and Chris. I just adore this couple. So at ease in front of the camera, and so in love! They have so much passion for each other and for their friends and family. You guys are a joy to know, and an absolute pleasure to photograph!
