Thomas and Deborah Bowers Wedding / Bella Donna Chapel, McKinney, TX

I met Deborah at the Dallas Bridal Show and she came to talk with me about her wedding. First we did engagement photos in Plano at one of her favorite locations. We got to know each other and that's where I got to meet her fiancee Thomas. We had a great time and she loved her photos so she hired me for her big day. I nearly fell out of my socks when I saw her wedding venue, WOW! Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney, Texas is modeled after a 16th Century Church in Czechoslovakia and it's just stunning. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was a blast! Deborah went all out and people were having so much fun they didn't stop dancing all night. Congratulations to Thomas and Deborah and thank you to Thomas for his amazing service to our country and congratulations on your almost retirement. Best wishes and congratulations again!

Josh and Aly Wedding in McKinney, Texas

Here's just a small sample of this beautiful wedding. I met Aly at the Dallas Bridal Show and after that she and Josh met with me and we got to talk about their wedding and get to know each other. They are such a sweet couple and I was really looking forward to their wedding. They're both musicians and they wanted to have photos with their instruments which I thought was a wonderful idea. Anytime you can incorporate who you are and what you do, into your wedding, it makes it all the more special. The location was absolutely stunning! What a gorgeous drive and when I arrived I felt like I was right at home. A beautiful chapel nestled on a hill and a reception hall just a few steps away. It was a bit windy that day but the light was beautiful. Everything went well until right after dinner Josh fell ill and had to be taken to the emergency room. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get most of the reception festivities, but I was glad to learn the next day from Aly's mom that he would be okay. Josh and Aly are a wonderful couple and I wish them all the happiness in the world. Congratulations to you both and best wishes!

Nathan and Jackie Engagement Photos / Rockwall, Texas

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!

Steven and Margarita Mesquite, Texas 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.

Thomas and Deborah Engagement Session Plano, Texas

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.
