Tears just started to well up in my eyes as I put my fingers to the keyboard and begin writing this blog post. Sarah + Kody’s day was one that left a huge, beautiful print on my heart. Some might assume it was because of the perfect fall weather or the Texas Hill Country that […]

“What kind of tacos do you like?” This is the text I got from Diana on the morning of her wedding day. I think I may have teared up at her thoughtfulness. And definitely jumped on the chance to eat Velvet Taco (a Dallas favorite) when arriving at the hotel she was getting ready at. […]

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. […]

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. […]

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 […]
