I am incredibly lucky when friends from way back hire me to shoot their wedding. Jessica and I went to college together and were both friends and sorority sisters. She is getting married in May but I had the pleasure of flying out to her home, Las Vegas Nevada, to shoot her engagement photos beforehand. This was my first time to meet her fiancee and it was a pleasure. I actually shot for several days, more a documentary style, to capture what life is like in their home right now on an ordinary day. It gave me the chance to get to know them as a couple and hang out with what turned out to be the coolest pack of dogs ever. (There were only 4 and a bossy cat, but still a pack…) Halfway through my visit we went out and took a traditional engagement session. I am in love with the entire collection but especially these images. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding coming up soon!

Mansion by the Sea is a great wedding venue and I love the images from this wedding! Jackie and Kyle had a gorgeous wedding on the water, with sand under their guests’ feet, and then a fun and relaxed reception just steps away. These sunset portraits were kinda awesome. Want a photo with a giant boat behind you? Done and done. PS – If you have a Mansion by the Sea wedding your guests can enjoy looking at… lemurs! Surprise!

Meg and Kyle had a beautiful day for their Happy H Ranch wedding in Comfort Texas. The sky was blue, the grass was green and it was the perfect temperature. They got married overlooking the hill country and then guests enjoyed food and dancing just steps away inside the huge open air reception hall. I have so many wonderful things to to say about this wedding, this bride and the venue but for now you’ll just have to enjoy the photos.:)

Tiffany and Derek are planning their wedding at the family ranch in Mathis Texas. We decided the ranch would be the perfect location to take engagement photos! We chose the day and of course it rained for three days straight before hand. We went ahead and braved the mud with everyone wearing huge boots. The weather was beautiful and the session was fun despite the mud (and I kept my equipment clean!)
