Phil and Veronica are such a classy and fun couple! I really enjoyed hanging out with them in downtown Dallas while taking engagement photos. Phil is the philosopher, always ready to whip up a clarifying syllogism or contemplate a deep philosophical truth. Chic and stylish Veronica is literary-minded, and can recommend a good book anytime. Both appreciate the value of good friends, a good conversation, and a good scotch. The always-classy Veronica is originally from the west coast, and Phil hails from the east coast. How fitting that they met in the middle here in Texas! I can’t wait to see what the future brings them! Congratulations, you two!
Jordan & Raphael
I’m so excited for my cousin, Raphael, and his beautiful fiance, Jordan. I really enjoyed shooting this mountainous engagement session in Helena, Montana. This is one legit American couple; they love shooting, beer, bald eagles and freedom. Raph is hilariously sarcastic, and Jordan can dish it right back to him! They are getting married this winter, and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding!
Dorothy & Michael
Dorothy and Michael are so in sync, it’s like they have been married for years. Their story is classic; they have known each other since they were about 12. I asked them once if it was love at first sight, to which Dorothy responded with a smirk that when they first met she thought Michael was short. This kind of playful levity is characteristic of their dynamic. In addition, they share a peacefulness that is a testimony to the stability of their relationship. These two are meant to be! Congratulations, Dorothy and Michael!
Eric & Sarah Are Having a Baby!
There is so much I could say about Eric and Sarah! They are good friends of mine, and such a wonderful couple! I have been friends with Sarah since 9th grade, back when she went by “Smack” (short for “Smackanackapacky”…long story). All these years she has been my good friend, confidant, and work buddy–we’ve worked at four different jobs together. Eric is a man of many talents: a journalist, singer/songwriter and guitar player in a band, and a talented photographer. In fact, Eric is my photography mentor. He played a large part in encouraging me to become a photographer. It really meant a lot to me to take these photos while back home in Helena, Montana this Christmas.
Sarah and Eric, you two are great together! Thanks for your friendship, encouragement, and kindness. I can’t wait to meet your baby!
Dana & Eric & Baby Makes Three!
Dana and Eric are hands down the most adorable couple I know, so I am expecting this baby to be pretty darn cute! We were driving through Dallas last month looking for a good place to take a few pictures and came upon this nice little park in the middle of the city, so we pulled over and plopped my baby into the umbrella stroller. Eric was nice enough to push while I dragged them all over the park!
These two are going to make such great parents. Dana has always been sweet and caring, while not taking baloney from anyone. Eric is kind, loyal, and a solid guy. This is one lucky baby on the way!
