John and Randi Wedding in Rockwall, Texas

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!

Nathan and Jackie Crow / The Springs, Terrell, TX

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.

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!
