Hailey & Tyler wanted to take engagement pictures in my hometown of Palestine, Texas.  The thing is, they are from a little town in Nebraska.  That little town just happens to be maybe 15 minutes away from where a close friend of mine grew up…such a small world!

So, they are currently located in Palestine of all places for Tyler’s job!  I was super honored to have been able to capture their engagement pictures before they tie the knot back home.  They even brought their ADORABLE and very excitable labradoodle, Loki. Isn’t he precious?  I really love when couples include their pets (aka children) in pictures.

Thank you both so much for asking me to capture this time in your lives <3

Being a first time Mom is overwhelming, I’m sure.  You can read the books and you can nest and try to prepare, but until you’ve experienced it, there’s no real answer book.

All of that to say that baby Amelia was actually a month when we did her newborn photos.  It took some cuddling, feeding, patting and gripe water to finally get her to her resting state, but we got it done!  She did so well, and it was so cool to capture this brand new family in the early stages of bonding.

Love you guys.

The vision of taking engagement pictures in a red flowing dress among the mountains has long been in Stephanie’s head.  When her Dad put me in touch with Garrett, I learned that he wanted to propose in Colorado.

They would be taking their boy Whiskey with them to see snow for the first time!  While the proposal would take place without her knowledge, we planned a surprise engagement session in Estes Park with guess what…a red dress!

It was **freezing**.

Literally.  We are talking 10°.  Yeah.

Like, I was cold, but I was also swarmed in coats and scarves.  These two brave souls did a fantastic job of not looking like they couldn’t feel their hands, but we had to take several breaks so that Steph could warm her hands in where else?  -Her boobs.  Ladies, sometimes we gotta do what we gotta do, you know?

The time I spent location scouting for this shoot is crazy.  When you can’t just take a drive, you have to rely on Google, and it’s a beautiful thing.  Thank God for the internet.  All of that said, this was maybe a week into the government shutdown.  The day before, the news showed that you couldn’t even get IN to Rocky Mountain National Park let alone get down the road I needed.

Luck was on our side when we drove up two days later.  The snow had thawed and the park was open, but our road was still closed.  So you do what you do best, you handle shit like a boss.  We froze, but it was still so fun, and afterward we all found a Thai restaurant where we warmed up with tea, soup and some great food.  I love Colorado, but I especially love Estes Park and the Rocky Mountains.  What an incredible place to take in.

I’d like to give some love to Shannon of The Olive and Poppy for working with me long distance on this vision and doing a beautiful job on the bouquet.  If you’re looking for a florist in Denver, she’s your girl.  Also, Stephanie would probably not have returned from Colorado had our friend Caitlyn not lent me the white stole from her own wedding.  It was the only thing Steph had to protect her from the cold!!  Love you, Caitlyn!!

Steph & Garrett plan to get married on their anniversary, which just happens to be a leap year!  Really looking forward to witnessing such a special couple take their vows.

Love you guys!

What you need to know about Kaley and Brandon is that they are MAYJAH Green Bay Packers fans.  They are from Wisconsin, so I’d expect no less, and in true yankee fashion, the day we took these pictures just so happened to be that FREEZING Sunday morning in January…you remember that one.  The happy couple is getting married this summer in Punta Cana…swoon!  Below is a small account of our time together.  

I truly hope that you Packers fans appreciate their homage to non other than quarterback Aaron Rodgers!!!  There was even a guy who passed us as we were shooting and as he came by he threw the deuce and said, “A-A-Ron!”  So even though football is finally behind us for the year, we can still pay our respects to the greatest sport of all!

Below is an account of my shenanigans in Colorado right before the new year. Yes…Garrett planned a surprise proposal in Colorado for his girlfriend, where they were planning a fun little trip to take Whiskey, their dog and play in the snow. But the plot thickens…his girlfriend, Stephanie, we go way back…just about 10 years, to when she was a high school senior.

If you care to see this adorable said senior, check her out here. Gorgeous, right?? Then there was her college graduation shoot, so you get the point…I love her. Anyway, we’ve kept in touch all this time and if you and I met at the bridal show, chances are, you’ve met her too 😉

Garrett was generous enough to include me in his plan to propose to Stephanie, so we went back and forth incognito (under a fake name and all) to plan out the logistics. It was SO fun and absolutely incredible to watch take place…After he proposed, he let her in on the other surprise, a fun shoot for the two of them up north in Estes Park, Colorado.

That shoot will be posted soon, but until then, enjoy this sweet proposal including Whiskey and his cute little paw protectors, because it was TEN degrees. Poor sweet boy was such a joy and I’m so glad that he was included on this special day.  A super special shout out to Steph’s Dad for also helping  all of this come together.  The Colello family has long been part of our lives and I’m so grateful for them all!

Also, mayjah shout to myself for waking up at 2:30 in the morning to catch the (what’s the opposite of red-eye?) 5AM flight to Colorado – great job, me!

November weddings in Houston, Texas…it really doesn’t get any better than that. I love November, always have. The weather is cool and crisp (when it isn’t being funny), the air smells of wood burning, the colors turn and the holidays begin. I now have more reason to love it because of this incredibly lovely couple.

The first thing I noticed about Elizabeth was her smile. She’s got a smile for days. I met both she and her mom and I immediately found myself hoping that I would be the one lucky enough to capture the wedding day. Upon meeting Michael, I realized why Liz had picked him. He’s such a gentleman, and is so sweet with her.

This gorgeous day unfolded with traditions carried and continued for centuries and across seas. Witnessing and capturing this wedding was incredible! It went perfectly, and the only absence felt by everyone was Elizabeth’s Dad. Though nothing can replace the loss of a parent, he was fully present and he had the best seat in the house to see it all.

Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Strohmann!

This is the story of two people who had the most perfect wedding day. God blessed this man and woman with wonderful friends and family who all came together to celebrate them vowing to one another their undivided love and devotion.

 I am THE luckiest girl, because they chose ME out of this saturated market where they had their pick of anyone they wanted. Two major things you should know about Shannon and Chris: 1) Shannon’s smile is one that could warm the coldest day. Her eyes light up and her cheeks flush pink. Her soul is pure and beautiful. 2) Chris is probably the most cheerful, happy and goofy groom I’ve ever photographed. During our engagement session, he greeted me with a huge grin. He was fun and playful and not afraid to be a little silly. After meeting his Mom, I see where he gets that BIG grin. Such a breath of fresh air <3. I loved the energy in the room during their beautiful ceremony. 

Their wedding day was seriously perfect. The weather, the sun, the wedding party and families…all amazing!  And the flower girls/ring bearers!  Wait until you see these little girls and boys…so precious!

I would photograph this day again in a heartbeat, but I’m SO glad to finally show you these two who have snuggled right into the core of my heart. Thank you both for giving me so much joy!

This wedding at ZaZa was LIT, y’all!

Steph and Charlie are such an awesome couple. They told me that their friends and family would be closing the night down with partying till the very end, but what these two failed to mention was that pretty much ALL of their friends are performers of some sort!  There were theatre majors, singers, contortionists, dancers, you name it!

So THAT’S why you’ll see a ton of reception shots in this story. There were just too many fun moments!  They were in the air, on the floor and all around. Something Steph failed to mention was that she can SANG!  All of the sudden, she hijacks the mic from the DJ and lays it DOWN.

One of the highlights was watching literally the whole guest list on the floor in full choreography mode acting out to Time Warp from The Rocky Horror Picture Show!  It was a top night!!

Of course the night wouldn’t be complete without all of their foster kitties turned family. They have 5 cats and a few more fosters that they made adorable Popsicle photo props with. I really loved how their day was an exact reflection of who they are and what they’re about. No put-ons and ZFG <3
