Highlights: 10 months of love and marriage

Just as with my family post, I’m sparing you once again.  Here’s a few of my favorites from the past 10 months sans blog.

1. How about an adorable wedding downtown Frisco with an elated bride and groom? Yes, please.

2.  This sweet day included a lot of very excited children in the wedding party, which meant shooting at 36 weeks pregnant was actually really fun!

3.  The English tea-inspired bridal session couldn’t have been more beautiful, and the fact that the bride and groom had the most adorable matchy-matchy names (Eric & Erica) made my heart happy!



4.  Yet, another wonderful name–Lemmons!  I couldn’t have been happier to photograph engagements, bridals, and a wedding, full of citrusy goodness!

*Side-note: I just had to include the “exit” photo because it had to be one of my all-time favorite memories at a wedding.  To continue with my goal to be brief, let’s just say that a man lit about 40 sparklers…and you can imagine how that turned out!

5.  To understand how amazing their love story is, you must realize that Jaimie is a cancer survivor.  The day was filled with praises and tears because of  the story the Lord had so beautifully written for them!

6.  Can you see the giddiness?  Melissa and Will’s day could not have been more beautiful!






7.  Though I’m no golfer, I adored this golf-inspired engagement, as well as Megan’s glamorous bridal session in Fort Worth and wedding in Waco!  They are such a beautiful couple with beautiful families!

8.  Willing to go biking, hiking, and even kayaking, had they been open on weekdays, this couple was loads of fun!  Just wait until you see their fun wedding!

9.  These TCU fans bleed purple!  What a joy it was to photograph such a wonderful couple!

Coelho Family: 10 Years and Counting!

They met in 4th grade.  They got married at 18.  They had 3 kids.  She finally got her dream wedding dress 10 years later.  It was one of the sappiest love stories I’ve ever heard.   Thank you, Coelho’s for the faithful testimony of young love grown strong through the guidance and grace of the God who loves without measure.

Be on the lookout for

  • The “first look.”  Yes, I was tearing up just watching them!
  • Vows renewed
  • A little boy entranced by the horses
  • An old picture book from 4th grade and a wedding day photo
  • Swingset, a sentimental place for 4th grade friends turned sweethearts

Angela, Bridals

So my sister-in-law (and her mom who was with us, for that matter)  gets the prize  for being the best “trooper.”  Angela and Andy were to be married just a couple weeks after we did this session, so we really had no time to move it to another date.

…and it rained…

I will never forget Angela’s mom praying over the rain as we took just a few inside the Denton courthouse before it closed.  Sure enough, the rain was at a standstill for a few moments, and when it started sprinkling, Angela posed up against walls with the tiniest overhanging roofs as I had an umbrella held over my head.  I should have taken a photo of that!  Angela stayed beautiful…no rain could ruin that!

Love you, sister!  Thanks for trusting me!

I HAD to include a few of these.  Andy proposed with a cookbook.  I could devote a whole blog to share all the romantic details, but I’m just going to share how we used the books in the photos for a reception table.

Sarah, Bridals

Yet another beautiful bride!  Over the planning process, I got to know Sarah, and she is one of the sweetest, most genuine people.  She truly cares for others, loves God, and is head over heels in love with her new husband.  Her wedding will be posted soon, but until then, check out a few bridals!
