LOVE THESE PEOPLE! After Kim and Richard’s wedding, I talked about how sad it can be that I don’t get to see clients again until they’re having a baby. Kim emailed me telling me we need to plan the next session with a winky face. I didn’t want to jump to conclusions and thought maybe she was just being nice like she wanted to see me again (HA), so I just let it go without saying anything. THRILLED to find out it was because they were pregnant and that I’d get to capture some amazing moments for them again! And especially exciting that I’d also be pregnant with my first. So fun to share in that together.

So I hopped on over to the hospital the day they gave birth and it always feels SO special to be one of the first to meet a new baby! Kim and Richard were so chill and in love and I hope that’s what my day looks like after birth. Then a week later I spent a few hours at their house snapping Raegan’s newborn photos, watching her pee on dad several times, and collectively sighing with disappointment at Amazon’s overhyped Prime day. BUT it was so fun and despite Raegan not loving being posed, we got some great stuff!

Congrats Salazars! Thanks for keeping me around.:)

This one was Dad’s request. I thought my husband was obsessed with Jeeps until I met Richard! This man LOOOOOVES his Jeep! So naturally – why not combine loves?!:)

FIRST OF ALL. Let me just say that Rachel and Blair ended their night with a dance (complete with lift) to “(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life”. And I had no idea. It was the best surprise and the most adorable last dance I’ve ever seen. Almost like they hired performers, the way we were all captivated! Y’all, I thought the whole thing was choreographed – and it WASN’T – just the bride and groom doing their thing! High five, guys – that was awesome!

Despite rain changing their plans, their day went so smoothly, the hair and makeup was flawless, the venue was fantastic to work with, and when you have Lupe Tortilla for dinner – there’s not much better. Choosing the right vendors makes all the difference in the world! And it showed on Rachel & Blair’s big day.

After taking their engagements and her bridals, I’m so thrilled to share these images from their wedding! Despite rain and heat, I’m so in love with this Texas summer wedding! Congrats you guys – hope you love these photos as much as I loved taking them!

Special shout out to Lida of Lida Mathews Photography for second shooting and doing a phenomenal job!

Just gorgeous!!

This was a wonderful event!!! Awesome couple, friends, and family to spend an evening with……to Mr. & Mrs. James!

Cyrah and Wesley got married last month on friend’s land near Magnolia, Texas. It was awesome. Cyrah was the MOST chill bride I’ve ever experienced. There were storms on the the forecast (both the wedding and reception were outside) and when I asked Cyrah what her plan was she just shrugged her shoulders and said “I guess we’ll dance in the rain!” As a former bride who got married in the pouring rain I was instantly in love with that! Thankfully the storm came and went early in the day so we could enjoy the ceremony and reception with the normal Texas heat/humidity!:)WHICH – I must mention – her entire family and friends were SUCH troopers! You would have never thought it was hot with how little they cared. Really – this was such a fantastic, selfless wedding party!

And I’ve gotta say – this was one of the best receptions I’ve photographed. I filled up two large memory cards in the first hour of dancing. SO much party! My favorite.

One last shout out – the men in uniform! Thank y’all so much for your service and for bringing sabers to the wedding.:)

Congrats you two – hope you had a fantastic honeymoon and are loving the newlywed life!
