Jake and Emily:Engagement-Photos-Photographer-Denton-TX-Square

Jake and Emily

This was a fun shoot at the beautiful Denton Square. We stopped by the coffee shop where they had their very first date; West Oak Coffee Bar (my wife and I also had our first date at a coffee shop). They both made each other laugh a lot and didn’t mind getting close in front of the walking crowds. Brave. The weather was just fantastic, though very windy. Very honored to have this opportunity to take your engagement photos in Denton, TX, Jake and Emily. Enjoy the pics everyone, and please go to West Oak Coffee Bar if you haven’t.

Maddie and Byron

Ok, so who doesn’t want to take wedding photos on a family ranch in East Texas? What made this day even better was their amazing personalities and laid-back demeanors. Plus, they are as cool as they look.

I had two weddings this past weekend, and both days had just wonderful weather. The beautiful sun-shining day really made the countryside look all the more idyllic. The wedding was wonderful with friends and family sitting around a huge tree in front of Maddie’s grandparent’s house, surrounded by tall pine trees. There was celebration and really good food from the food truck. At the end of the celebration, we drove down their road and finished off the photos with some shots in the pine trees, a regular place where Maddie and family would explore and play in. So awesome. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it. Enjoy.

Congrats Maddie and Byron!

Manuel and Erica:Wedding-Photography-Photographer-Belltower-Chapel-Fort Worth-TX

Manuel and Erica

I had the pleasure of meeting Manuel and Erica at Starbucks 3 months ago on a dreary day. They were easy to talk with and are very genuinely loving people. I had a lot of fun shooting their engagement photos and it made me more excited to work with them on the wedding. The day was just fantastic. The weather was cool and breezy, but not too breezy. They were both anxious when they first arrived, but in an excited way. They knew that this is a true commitment to love one another in a true Christ-like manner, and they were all in. This was a wonderful wedding to photograph at the beautiful Bell Tower Chapel in Ft. Worth, TX with a loving group of people. Fun night, fun people.

Congrats Manuel and Erica!!!

Kawika and Josey

I was so happy when Kawika and Josey came up to my booth at the Dallas Bridal Show last month and announced that they had one the free engagement giveaway I offered for the bridal show. They are both so incredibly sweet and awesome that I was more than happy to have them win it. The mentioned doing the shoot at the Fort Worth Water Gardens, and I had never heard of the location. COOL PLACE!!! The location definitely feel both of their artistic styles and personalities and the place had a lot to offer for such a small proximity in the middle of a huge city. Well Josey and Kawika, excellent job. I didn’t really have to direct much because they are both so comfortable around each other and made each other laugh a lot. Fun times. Enjoy the engagement photos.

Tons of laughing. Enjoy the engagement photos from Arlington, TX.

They are going to just be fantastic parents. Congrats you two.

John and Carla

 

I met John and Carla for the first time at their engagement shoot at the beautiful garden area at Texas Woman’s University. They were incredibly easy to work with because all they did was smile and look awesome. Well, they did the exact same thing on their wedding day, except for longer. It was VERY cold on their wedding day and the sudden drop in temperature made the plans change from outdoor shots to indoor only. But they didn’t seem fazed at all and the whole evening was full of family members meeting and greeting and lots of laughter during the reception toasts. Plus, I think everyone invited knew how to dance like pros. A wonderful time!

Thank you John and Carla for letting me to take your wedding photos and CONGRATS!!!!!

Cody and Delia:Wedding-Photography-Photographer-Destination-Florence-AZ-The Windmill Winery

Cody and Delia

I was really excited when I first got the opportunity to work with both Cody and Delia with the engagement shoot in Frisco at Arbor Hills. They did a wonderful job and were truly comfortable with each other, which made it really easy to take pics of them both. Then it happened, they invited me to photograph their wedding in Arizona. I was freaking excited and honored to the moon. Thank you both so much for letting be have such a privilege. This was my first time in Arizona doing a wedding, and what a way to start that trend.

They first had a beautiful evening dinner with family and friends at the Vintage 95. This was a hip/fancy restaurant in Phoenix with really good food. There were tons of laughs, hugs, and deep felt speeches by friends and family that are mostly from Texas. The fact that the majority of their guest were from Texas and they all sacrificed the drive or plane flight to get there to see them both get married says a lot about this couple.

The wedding was at The Windmill Winery and this was one of the most fantastic and plentiful venues I’ve ever photographed at. I seriously could have spent all day photographing at the various spots around their venue. The weather was absolutely incredible and it was a wonderful night.

Congrats to Cody and Delia!
