A few months back I received an email from Jackie who said she was referred to me by someone she waited on at a restaurant in Dallas she worked at. It turned out to be Audrey, a lovely lady who was recently married in Dallas and I had the honor of photographing her wedding. Audrey and Brett were out to dinner one evening and she noticed Jackie's stunning engagement ring and gave her my information. I was so flattered and always feel so honored when someone refers me, it really means the world to me. I was so glad when Jackie and Nathan decided to book me for their upcoming wedding. They are such a fun and easy going couple, working with them was a breeze. We had some rain on our scheduled day but were able to get some beautiful shots then took more the following day when the sun was out. Nathan picked her up in some cute and different ways, I just love the pick up shots! Here's a little peek at their engagement session and I can't wait for the wedding!

I've known Steven for a while now and when he told me he was getting married I was really happy for him. I have gotten to know Margarita and she's a lot of fun, super nice, and always the first one to volunteer to help someone. It's clear they're totally nuts about each other. There are definitely adjustments when one ends up in a wheelchair but it doesn't seem to slow Steven down much (in fact he was the one who was early to the wedding, go figure, LOL) and Margarita takes such good care of him. It's not an easy thing but neither of them complain and they really have a great relationship and a lot of fun together. They always have smiles on their faces and Steven giggles a lot, he's so happy! Congratulations to you both and best wishes.

Deborah emailed me regarding her upcoming wedding and we got to talking. I met with her and we had a lot of fun chatting. She's a paralegal and incredibly knowledgeable in the legal field so it was a fascinating conversation, plus she's super funny, she had me in stitches. Her hubby to be is in the military and she wanted to have an engagement session before booking her wedding which I think is a great idea. You really get to know your photographer that way. We shot in downtown Plano, which if you haven't been there you should check it out. I used to take my son to the park there to play, it's really quite nice. I enjoyed the shoot a lot and it's so apparent that Thomas is very smitten with her, he loves her so much and the two of them seem incredibly happy and in love. Thomas retires soon, not too much more to go. Thomas, thank you so much for your service, what a sacrifice you have made for us so thank you again. I'm looking forward to their big day.

2016 turned out to be a GREAT year! I was surprised at just how incredibly blessed I was this year. I booked up solid and feel so grateful. It's not easy closing a successful business in one state, and opening it up in another, and getting back to the amount of bookings and momentum one once had but I managed to do it. I'm just so happy things went so well this past year, and if 2017 is half as good I will be very happy. Thank you to all of my wonderful couples and all of the other people who hired me, I appreciate it and you more than you know. Please stay in touch as I have come to like all of you so very much, and getting to know you really enriched my life. I really do get the best people coming in my life! Here's to 2017 and Happy New Year Everyone!

I met Katelyn's maid of honor at the Dallas Bridal Show and she was looking for a photographer for her very good friend. She told me the wedding was going to be the following winter in a barn. Sign me up! I practically grew up in a barn riding horses and my dream home would be a fully renovated beautiful barn with my horse's stall attached. I was so excited for the location that I was really hoping Katelyn would like me and my work. I finally got to meet Katelyn and talk more about her wedding. She was so sweet and I could barely contain my excitement for her big day. I hadn't met Cesar yet but was able to when I shot a wedding in New Mexico and they both made the trip from Amarillo for engagement pictures. I got to spend a little time with them before the wedding. I was pretty blown away he drove all the way from Amarillo to Albuquerque, especially with his long work hours, but you could tell how much he loves her and didn't mind making the trip. The Milestone is a beautiful venue and they do an amazing job. Katelyn's winter wedding was so warm and personable and I had a wonderful time. Congratulations Cesar and Katelyn and all the very best to you both.

I met Audrey at the Dallas Bridal Show last January. I've met so many nice people at that show and am looking forward to the next one. I met with her and Brett and we talked more about her wedding. Audrey was so excited, and organized the big event all by herself. She was detailed and willing to listen to good ideas. I found her to be incredibly open minded and super kind. She knew how she wanted the wedding to go, and with her busy job was able to pull off a magical day. It's clear she and Brett are a great team and love each other very much. Of all my years in wedding photography, I can remember about 5 dresses that are my all time favorites and Audrey's is one of them! I absolutely fell in love with her dress, it was magical, like a fairy tale and forever timeless. She looked just flawless! Congratulations to Brett and Audrey, all the very best to you both.
