I can’t even begin to tell you how many newly-engaged girls have reached out to me for their wedding photography and shared that they’re feeling super overwhelmed by the planning process. Maybe they don’t have the time to figure everything out on their own, or maybe they don’t even know where to begin!

When I first heard about the “first look” trend several years ago, I was pretty strongly against it. I’m a pretty traditional gal in a lot of ways, so I immediately wrote it off as something I would NEVER do once my wedding day finally arrived. Haha, I was wrong. As I’m writing this post, […]

One of my favorite things to experience at a wedding is witnessing firsthand how God has shaped the lives of the bride and groom and brought them together. These two have been together for over SIX YEARS now, and it’s so evident that they are truly meant to be. Listening to them share their vows with one another then participate in communion as their first act as husband and wife brought me SO much joy! Marriage truly is a picture of the Gospel, and I loved that Bre & Lukas reminded everyone celebrating with them on their special day of the love, joy, grace, and forgiveness that is found in Jesus.

This wedding was truly so special. I met Libby through our church in Waco, and I was just so excited when she reached about having me photograph her wedding. When we first met up for coffee to talk about her vision for her wedding day, I just knew it was going to be absolutely perfect! […]

Bre and Luke’s engagement session was an absolute DREAM! I was so excited to get home and start editing these images after their shoot! We were pretty worried about the rain, but the sun even came out for awhile during their session, so it was absolutely perfect! They also drove all the way from Georgetown […]

From the moment I met Alyssa & Adam, they were both so warm, kind, and welcoming. They’ve been together for a super long time, and everyone at the wedding was so excited that they were finally getting married! Even though I just met them that day, I may or may not have been tearing up during the ceremony because I was so happy for them 🙂

Nice to meet you! I'm a wedding photographer, wife, believer, and proud dog mom. I grew my business in my tiny college dorm room and took it full time when I graduated. I now live in Dallas, Texas, with my husband, Hudson, and our golden retriever, Brighton! I survive on coffee & chocolate, always have a podcast playing, and use way too many exclamation points!

Though my love of photography began at age 13, my desire to serve couples on their wedding day began when Hudson and I got engaged! Getting to celebrate with my couples (and provide lots of wedding planning tips + tricks along the way) brings me so much joy!
