Lacy got my information at the Dallas Bridal Show and we had been emailing each other back and forth for quite a while and I enjoyed talking with her. She's super busy and hadn't quite nailed down a wedding date yet when we first started talking. She described the location of her wedding and I really wanted to do it so I hoped she would choose me. When we met at Starbucks in person she was telling me about her interest in having engagement photos that told a little bit about them as a couple. They like to go duck hunting together and I love stylized engagement sessions. Stylized engagement sessions are sessions where the couple will show in the photographs an activity they like to do together or tells a little something about them as a couple. Whatever you like do do as a couple can be incorporated into your images. Regular sessions are great too but I just loved the ideas she had so I was super excited when she chose me! She's so photogenic, just can't take a bad photo of her. When I drove out to the location it was GORGEOUS! I hope to live out that way someday further into the country, it was so peaceful and quiet and all that nature was wonderful, I didn't want to leave. I can't wait for the wedding!
I met Tiffany in a mom's group a few years ago and think she's just the nicest person. Just such a sweet family and their girls are adorable. We had a session last year but it was a bit windy so a little more challenging. This year it was perfect and I just love that golden hour of light. I think we got some great images.

I first met John when we bought our house and he gave me his card and showed me some serious issues with my lawn. Our lawn was about 85% full of weeds, UGH! He recommended weed treatment and fertilizer to help the grass. So I scheduled to have Green Lawn come the following day. After just one treatment I couldn't believe my eyes, a huge amount of the weeds were already gone! I was struggling to get the timer on my sprinkler system working and he went out of his way to get it up and running for me so I could water at the appropriate times. I got to meet his daughter who played with my son and our turtle Speedy (she thought Speedy was pretty cool) one day while John worked on the yard. It was nice getting to know people since we were brand new to the neighborhood. So time went by and treatment after treatment and my lawn looked AMAZING, wow what a huge difference, I couldn't believe it! I can't recommend them enough. Randi his lovely wife handles the invoices and when I replied to one of her emails describing the mean weeds that bite, she and I had a good laugh about "weeds with teeth," (don't step on one of those babies without shoes!) and we just kind of hit it off. Well the weeds with teeth are completely gone but a nice friendship has bloomed. I got an unexpected call a year later from Randi regarding her wedding and I was completely thrilled to be a part of their special day. Randi is super fun and I had an amazing time. I liked the backdrop they made for the ceremony so much that I am going to be getting some old fence and doing one for myself for family photos. I was blown away with the decorations and the twinkle lights, that backdrop is incredible! Thank you so much John and Randi for letting me be a part of your special day and congratulations, best wishes to you all. PS The food was amazing, YUM!

Here's a very small peek at some engagement sessions I have done lately. I have enjoyed getting to know these wonderful couples and have had so much fun working with them. Just such sweet people and I am so happy with the results of their sessions. An engagement session is a great time before your wedding to get more comfortable having your pictures taken and have some fun. Congratulations to these amazing couples!

I met Jackie in a very interesting way. I got an email from her saying she met Audrey (a wonderful bride I had the previous year) and that she had recommended me. Jackie was a waitress at a restaurant that Audrey and Brett had been at and Audrey noticed her stunning ring and said they were recently married and gave Jackie my information. Jackie came to my home office and we talked a little bit and I got to know her, she's super nice and easy going. Nathan was out of state working so when engagement time came a few months later I got to meet him. I got a favorite shot of him holding her upside down during their engagement session, just love that shot! We had a little rain that day so we did some more photos the following day when the sun came out. Finally wedding day came and I just love Terrell and the Springs is such a great place for a wedding, so pretty! Congratulations Nathan and Jackie on the move a few hours away and your marriage, I wish you both all the very best.

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!
