Clare & Mark’s Winter Engagement

posted in: Engagements | 0

I am beyond excited to share these pictures of my gorgeous sister and her awesome fiance! While visiting home this Christmas, I jumped at the chance to take engagement photos of Clare and Mark against the backdrop of beautiful Montana. This was definitely the most extreme photo shoot I have ever done! Mark and Clare braved the cold (in Clare’s case in heels!), hiked a snowy mountain, and looked good doing it! It meant a lot to me to be able to take these photos. If you know Mark and Clare, you probably had the same reaction as I did when these two started dating: “FINALLY!”. Clare is beautiful inside and out and passionate about helping others. I have known Mark for years and I am so thrilled that this dapper, genuine, kind, smart, guy is joining our family. These two are the most adorable couple and–as I think you can tell from the photos–crazy about each other to boot! Congratulations you crazy kids!

Gabe & Katie’s Engagement

I love how Gabe and Katie planned the details of their engagement session to create something meaningful and unique to them. It was so fun hanging out with these two as they had a tea party picnic, did a little bit of light reading, and shared the stories of how they met and got engaged. These two are the real deal, everyone, and I couldn’t be happier for them! Congratulations, Katie and Gabe!

Zach & Luci’s Wedding

posted in: Weddings | 0
    Zach and Luci’s wedding was such a blast! I really enjoyed witnessing the commitment made by this amazing couple with the support and love of their family and friends. Luci and Zach said their vows during a beautiful ceremony at St. Anne’s in Coppell. The reception that followed was full of laughter and merriment, and perfect down to the mini apple pie wedding favors which represented one of the couple’s first dates. The best man gave a great speech in which he recalled what it was like growing up with Zach, and said that Zach is the kind of guy that makes you want to be a better version of yourself. Luci’s three sisters gave a charming shared speech in which they extolled Luci’s virtue and meticulous planning skills. Everyone had a good laugh when the three sisters brought up an old list by Luci of must-have qualities of her future husband. From the looks on Zach’s face, I’m guessing he didn’t quite meet all the qualifications (must love Bollywood, must be a good dancer). But when it came to what matters, the girls assured us that Luci had found her perfect man. The speeches were capped off with Dr. Pepper toasts (a nod to Zach and Luci’s Baylor/Waco roots). The bride and bridesmaids kicked off a lively night of dancing with a surprise choreographed dance. Zach and Luci ended the party with a private dance, followed by their exit through a tunnel of smiling faces. I am so happy for these two! I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from the beautiful day below!

     

Adam & Lisa’s Wedding

posted in: Weddings | 1

Adam and Lisa are an amazing couple. I was so honored to photography their beautiful wedding day, full or friends, family, laughter and love. When two big awesome families such as these are joined together, I would expect nothing less! The ceremony was awe-inspiring, encompassing the beauty of their shared Catholic faith, and when Adam and Lisa said their vows-all the feels! These two are so in love, you guys! The reception was a blast: barbecue, games, kids, babies and a crazy fun dance party–doesn’t get much better than that! One of my favorite parts was the he said/she said game. Adam and Lisa sat back to back and were asked a series of questions (such as “Who knew they wanted to get married first?”, “Who is the better cook?”) to which they lifted up her shoe or his. The results had the whole room laughing. Lisa and Adam are such a lovely couple, it is no wonder that this day was just all around amazing. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

John & Kelly’s Wedding

posted in: Weddings | 0

I was so honored to be a part of John and Kelly’s wedding. What a beautiful day filled with so much love between family and friends! I first met this stunning bride in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been–her home country of Ireland. Kelly is the sister of a dear friend of mine who I was visiting and I couldn’t get over how warm, welcoming and charming their whole family was. Of course I jumped at the chance to photograph Kelly’s wedding. Kelly and John’s wedding took place in a much different, but also very beautiful place: Phoenix, Arizona. John’s family were such gracious hosts–it’s no wonder that both families got along so well! Kelly and John were introduced by a mutual friend, Fr. Scott, who informed John about twelve time “This is Kelly, she’s from Ireland”. The two could not stop thinking about each other since that day, and the rest is history. John and Kelly are both such loving, kind and generous people. During their vows, they held a small crucifix as a symbol of the sacrificial love of marriage. What a beautiful witnesses to power of the sacrament of marriage. To borrow a line from the father of the bride’s moving speech, they are “the real deal”. What a wonderful couple, and what an amazing day! Congratulations, you two!
