Tatiana & Tristan

As a child, my father's side of the family was very close. I knew all of my cousins, aunts, and uncles very well. However, as with most families, time caused us to drift apart. Most of my family moved away and started living their own lives.

Now, there is nothing wrong with that at all. I feel like relationships with people should always be treated as temporary. Because most of them are, and that makes them even more special. This is why I was so excited to shoot my cousin Tatiana's wedding. We haven't reconnected (other than on social media) in over ten years. While I had very little time to catch up with her in between shooting the wedding photos, it was very refreshing to see how happy and excited she was to get married! 

Enjoy the photos!

Lauren & Kody

Because I'm finishing up my degree in chemistry, I don't usually advertise my ability to travel very much. I will definitely do it though, but because of my lack of outreach, I don't do it often!

However when Lauren & Kody approached me at a local wedding show, I knew I just had to shoot their wedding. We just immediately hit it off, and I could sense the strong connection they had with each other, even through all of the overwhelming stress that comes with wedding planning. I feel like wedding planning is the first major test in a relationship. If you can handle that, then there is little you ca't handle together!!!

Lucky for me, they hired me to shoot their wedding at the absolutely gorgeous Inspiring Oaks Ranch in Wimberley, TX. Let me just say something, wow at that place! You get to stay at this really nice house in what feels like the middle of nowhere surrounded by hills and trees. They had an excellent ceremony spot and and an equally amazing reception spot. They didn't pay me to say this hehe, I just loved it!

Anyway, I loved shooting this wedding! The weather and lighting were perfect. Lauren and Kody were obviously deeply in love. The ceremony was perfect. And the reception? I swear they hacked my spotify playlist and copied my favorite songs! haha

Okay I'll stop talking and get to the photos now! Enjoy!!!!

Heather and Brant

On March 5th I shot a very special wedding. It was my first wedding to shoot at Villa di Felicita. It was also probably the shortest ceremony I've ever shot!

So what people may not realize is that when I meet a client for a pre-wedding consultation, I'm not only being "interviewed" for a job, but I'm also deciding if I want to accept the job. It doesn't happen often, but sometimes I meet people who I don't really feel a good connection with and I'll recommend them to another photographer.

Why am I writing about all of this? Well I got to meet Heather and Brant at The Foundry Coffee House a few months back and almost instantly decided that I wanted to work with them! It usually takes me a few minutes to the entire meeting before I make my decision, but they had such a good positive energy that it took almost no time at all.

So anyway, I'll stop talking and get to the photos. Congrats Heather and Brant! Your wedding was awesome and I loved the venue you chose!
