Valerie & Randal, Engagements

When I got together with Valerie to figure out engagements… she got slightly nervous…

“How do you feel about driving two hours away? Randal and I have a very special place to us outside of the city where we go to do motocross.”

“I’m in.”- I said. AND OH MAN… this session turned out to be truly one of the most adventurous, beautiful, and fun engagements I have ever had the pleasure of shooting. When I drove in to Red River Motorcycle Trails… I was blown away by the beauty of the rock formations, the saturation of the red river, the kindness of all the friends that drove me around on a four wheeler (so I wouldn’t die), other friends who helped with the drones, motocross bikes, and so much more.

Mr. & Mrs. Silva, McKinney Texas

So fun fact. I have know Jamie since we were in second grade. When I moved away, we lost touch until this past year when she reached out to me to shoot her wedding. I had already been able to really get to know Ryan and Jamie as a couple because of the engagement session, but it could not have even been matched to how fun their wedding day was. First off, yall. This venue is amazing. It is a beautiful white barn in McKinney, with clean, crisp walls, open spaces, and beautiful places to capture different backgrounds. The ceremony was beautiful as the sun set over they spoke their vows and it clothed around them during their portrait session. The flowers and details were exquisite, and the donut wall, well… enough said about that. Not only that, but Jamie and Ryan were both so in love and so happy. They were present, relaxed, and joyful. There was no better way to be on your wedding that. What a beautiful celebration of love. Thank you for honoring me with capturing your special day. Here are some of my favorite shots from one of the most important days in history.

Elyse & Keaton, Engagements

I have known Elyse and Keaton for a while now. I remember YEARS ago, I looked at Keaton and said... "if you are ready to make the plunge... think of me." Even all that time ago, Elyse and Keaton were bound to end up together. They were always loving, kind, and a joyful towards each other and to their friends. They always manage to be silly and comfortable and real. And every time I see them their presence brings a light to the party. Love you both, and enjoy your sneak peek!

"It may not always be easy, but you're the love of my life. My heart is riding on a runaway train, you are the love of my life. Through all the pleasure and pain, from the moment I first saw you, I knew it right away. I knew that you were the love of my life. Simply the love of my life, you are the love. The great love of my life." -Carly Simon

Mr. & Mrs. Dunn, Parker Texas

I have known Molly since the good ole' days where we would have Bachelor watching nights and laugh as we watched people attempt to find love. I actually remember when Molly started talking about this boy she met on Coffee Meets Bagel, and her glowing smile as she would talk about their time together. Turns out, God had plans of His own to find her love! Flash forward two years and Molly & Andrew celebrated their big day. It was such a perfect day nestled between the cold winter. Thankfully, the sun was shining, their family was celebrating, and the Dunn's love officially started on this marvelous wedding day. Molly & Andrew, I hope you enjoy your sneak peak!

I have gotten the opportunity to be a part of Brian & Lindsay's story from the beginning of their engagement through the day they said "I Do." Their wedding was the perfect mix of classic, classy & fun. I mean, have you SEEN Lindsay's dress? How about the sunset ceremony? Or the bubble send off? Everyone was loving, graceful and joyous on this perfect day! Brian & Lindsay, thank you for trusting me to capture this day. Enjoy your sneak peek!
