Jonathan and Sandra Sneak Peek- TWU Little Chapel in the Woods -Denton, TX

 

Jonathan and Sandra’s Sneak Peek

Jonathan and Sandra had a wonderful wedding today at TWU’s Little Chapel in the Woods. Sandra was so incredibly welcoming the first moment I met her and her family. As they were getting ready, I swept in to get some shots of the guys getting ready and they, too, were friendly and congenial. It was a beautiful wedding in the Chapel and there were tons of smiles during the ceremony. They both handled the cold (Texas cold) weather like pros for some fun photos outside after the ceremony. I honestly don’t think I met an unfriendly guest at the reception and they finished the night off with a bubble exit. Fun times at the Hilton Garden Inn. Thank you both for letting me be a part of your wedding day and I hope the very best for your futures. Enjoy the honeymoon in Las Vegas!!!

15 in 2015

This has been a BIG year.

First off, I am so thankful with what God has done this year with this business. I asked a BIG prayer in the Spring, which was “I want 15 weddings, please”. I got 15, but one dropped out in December because of plans changing. So I think that is an answered prayer, but it has been such a blessing with the 14. Also, I’m so thankful to have such a wonderful wife who always supports me in all this. She’s simply amazing!

Secondly, thank you to everyone that let me be a part of your celebration. It is such an honor to be chosen to take pictures of each of your weddings/families/anything. There are a lot of photographers out there, and I am so thankful that each of y’all for choosing me to capture your sweet moments. Thank you so much.

Here are some pics of this year’s fun times. Hope you enjoy and that your year is really blessed and wonderful.

P.S. I’m praying for 30 weddings this year, so get ready!!!

Matt and Terez Engagements: McKinney, TX

First of all, it was a beautiful day today and I am so thankful to have met Mattand Terez a couple of months ago at West Oak Coffee here in Denton. They are both very laid back and were open for some cool shots when we talked about taking their pictures at an airport (Ethan has a pilot’s license). It was a fun day today, and we ended up finishing at TWU. Thank you both for this opportunity. Enjoy.

Secondly, I GOT TO TAKE ENGAGEMENTS AT AN AIRPORT!

Ethan and Whitney: Denton Courthouse Wedding

It was cold with fall leaves all around the Denton Courthouse. I walked over to meet Ethan and Whitney, both smiling for the big moment approaching. They were so approachable and nice that it was easy to start chatting and taking a couple of pics in front of the courthouse while the judge arrived. It was a very sweet ceremony with tons of love in the room. I loved working with you both and thank you for the opportunity. Enjoy.

Tito and Sarah Wedding: The Milestone in Aubrey, TX

I had the honor of photographing and getting to know Tito and Sarah on Oct. 18th, 2015. The day of their wedding could not have had better weather, with the nice cool front and light breeze that came through Aubrey, TX. Everyone was in high spirits and both families celebrated with the newly married couple. It was a wonderful day and thank you both for letting me be a part of your wedding day. Enjoy.

P.S. I was especially honored that Jamie Reiman, mother of the bride, referred me because she is such a great woman and has had a big impact on my wife’s life.
