Jennifer: A Bride + Her Pups

Jennifer + Dylan Forsythe are married, which means I can finally share these photos!

This bridal session was unlike any other: Jennifer brought her beautiful pups along with her to shoot her portraits. Riley and Cali looked so stunning and regal with their flower collars, and their momma was a vision in her wedding gown!

Congratulations to Jennifer + Dylan on officially taking their vows and becoming one (large and animal-filled) family!

Haleigh + Glenn | Anniversary

I love love love this sweet couple! Haleigh and Glenn's FIRST anniversary is today, and the last time I was in Texas, they asked me to do a special anniversary shoot for them. The two of them got dressed in the clothes they wore on their wedding day, and we had a fun, gorgeous session overlooking the lake. 

The water, the rocks, these lovebirds...everything about this session was flawless. It's been SO DIFFICULT sitting on these for the last few months, so I'm thrilled to finally be able to share them!

Happy anniversary, you two! 

Jennifer + Dylan

Jennifer and Dylan were my last engagement session while I was home in Dallas a few weeks ago...and goodness were they showstoppers! We met at White Rock Lake and explored the area with their two Aussies, Riley and Cali. If you know me you know I am OBSESSED with dogs, so these sweethearts had me on cloud 9!

It was an overcast day, but the sun peeked through at the PERFECT time, and we were able to get incredible photos with sunbeams streaming through the trees. 

This stunning couple was nothing but smiles and laughs, and their love for each other (and their entire little family) was radiating our entire session. I'm so pumped to finally be sharing these (it was so hard picking just a few to post!)

Congratulations on your engagement, Jennifer and Dylan...I can't WAIT for your wedding next year! 

The Tucker Wedding

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone...to celebrate, here's a bit of magic from my last wedding of the year!

Hannah and Andrew got married last week at the absolutely GORGEOUS Stone Crest Venue in McKinney, TX. After everyone got ready, the two saw each other for their first look...and Andrew's expressions were absolutely priceless! Although it was freezing (literally--it was 27 degrees outside!), the bridal party braved the cold for some photos. 

Before they separated, Andrew read a letter expressing his love and devotion to his soon-to-be-wife. The proceeding ceremony was short and sweet, and there wasn't a dry eye in the room when Hannah and Andrew officially became man and wife! We were thinking it would be dark by the time the ceremony was over, but a stunning sunset appeared and we HAD to get a few shots!

The reception was a blast, and guests packed the dance floor all night. Near the end of the party, the DJ sent everyone but Hannah and Andrew out of the room. For the first time since they were wed, the Tuckers danced together in the candlelight, with no one else around. It was beautiful and intimate, and led into the stunning sparkler exit perfectly.

Congratulations again, Hannah and Andrew Tucker! I wish you all the love and happiness in your future!

Ellen + Raul

Last night was seriously a DREAM! Raul and Ellen got engaged in the Bishop Arts District in Dallas underneath a canopy of Christmas lights. Raul contacted me a couple weeks ago about shooting their proposal, and put together a gorgeous display of lights and flowers for his girlfriend (now...FIANCÉE!!) to find. 

As the two walked up, guitarists played "I Can't Help Falling In Love" and Ellen realized what was happening. She got to the table and flipped over the marquee sign that read, "Will You Marry Me?" and when she turned around, Raul was down on one knee!

He spoke from the heart, and she said yes. 

Congrats on your engagement, Raul and Ellen (and Merry Christmas, you filthy animals!)
