a groovy little place to get inspired

If there’s one word to describe Dre + Kyle, it’s fun. Proof is below, but hang with me for a second while I tell you about them. First off, Dre is one of the most kind people I’ve ever met. She’s full of spunk, will welcome you right in and make you feel at home. […]

I have a special place in my heart for this little family. When I first met Ali (we had followed each other on Instagram and decided to meet for coffee at Radio Coffee in Austin), she told me that she had endometriosis and her chances for having a baby were slim. BUT she was pregnant. […]

Traveling alone is one of my very favorite things. Every time I’ve set out to explore somewhere solo, it’s been an eye opening experience. I love feeling small in a big place. I love going places where no one knows my name. When my parents told me they were visiting New York City this summer, […]

Oh, Tulum. It had been a little over a year since I shot Celbi + Gabe’s wedding in this magical place. I was both excited and nervous to go back. Excited to meet Manuela + Philip and document their day, but nervous because I’ve felt a lot of pressure since that first Tulum wedding. After […]

I like the sky before a storm. It’s crazy romantic: the clouds just waiting to burst and fill the earth with goodness. — It was 65 degrees in Los Angeles this Wednesday. I remember it vividly because I was upset that it was 80 back home in Texas — I’m not one for the cold […]

If you’ve creeped on me enough, you know I cherish every one of my couples. They are my friends. And I love every one of them. DJ + Maci are no exception — except, in a way they are. Not every couple texts you on their honeymoon and says they miss you. They did. Not […]

What do you love most about each other? Marissa: “I am a very fast paced person…. I overcommit myself, overbook myself and take on too much all of the time. Lou slows me down and balances me out in the most beautiful way. When we are together, I am reminded to slow down and enjoy […]

I’m (finally) blogging this wedding in the heat of July in Texas, but this day was nothing short of the perfect winter day — in my opinion, at least. The trees were orange, red and yellow and the weather was perfect for an outdoor event. I remember discussing the day with Jess almost a year before. […]

DJ + Maci | This SMOKING HOT couple has quickly formed a special little place in my heart. From the moment I met DJ and Maci at Mudsmith (a rad little coffee shop + bar in Lower Greenville), I just knew we’d be friends. I’ve had so much fun chatting with Maci about all the […]

Olivia + Ian My babes. I have known these two’s love story since DAY ONE. It’s not often I get to say that about any of my weddings — actually, I’ve never been able to say that about my weddings. Olivia and I were roommates our freshman and sophomore year of college. Freshman year Ian […]

Kat + Andrew These. Two. Y’all. When I first met Kat + Andrew they had driven 4+ hours to the Texas Hill Country for their engagement session at Pedernales Falls State Park. I knew I’d like them for that reason alone (give me all the adventure sessions), but I didn’t know they’d be the most […]

Whitney + Chris I have been waiting for forever to meet + capture Whitney and Chris! We booked their wedding almost a year ago, and it was so much fun to explore downtown Houston with them for their engagement session. Fun fact: We weren’t originally planning on shooting at the parking garage—I just happened to […]

Kaki + Josh I feel like I start every blog post by saying how much I love the couple. Well, I love Kaki + Josh, too. They are some of the sweetest, most fun humans I’ve met! And they are SO IN LOVE. Like really—if you need an example of love led by God, it’s […]

Krista + Jon I’ve known Krista since college; we were in the same sorority and always shared a love for creative things + we were both in mass communication program. She’s one of the most kind, full-of-life people I know & oh my goodness so is Jon! I could not think of a better match […]

Chelsea + Matt My sweet, sweet Chelsea + Matt. I really love these two. Chelsea and I first met for coffee at one of my favorite little spots in Austin, Quacks Bakery — if you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend this little Hyde Park gem. After chatting with her about a million ideas […]

CELBI + GABE M a g i c a l. That’s truly the best way to describe Celbi + Gabe’s wedding in Tulum. From getting to hang out with them the day before, to the energy at Gitano for their rehearsal dinner and, of course, the most wonderful wedding day at Papaya Playa Project—this seriously […]

Airey + Jack I feel like I need to start this blog post by saying, “hot damn!” Because that is what I think every time I look at this stunna of a couple. Airey was introduced to me through one of my sweet brides, Celbi. I was traveling to Nashville for one of my best […]

Mr. + Mrs. Cordova I’ll never forget meeting Molly at my favorite coffee shop in San Marcos, TX to chat about her big day. The way she talked about Stephen + their love truly gave me chills. After getting to know them during their engagement session, and then more over the months leading up to […]

CHELSEA + MATT Chelsea + Matt. These two are some of the coolest people to photograph. From the way they look at each other to the fact that they were literally down for anything (including laying on rocks and dirt to get the badass shot above), this shoot was simply perfect in every way. We […]
