In 2010, I was four years out of college with no direction, but with a huge desire to do something meaningful. I decided to enroll in culinary school and met my future husband on the very first day! After opening a bakery in South Texas, I stumbled upon the wedding industry and absolutely fell in love. When my husband and I decided to move to Dallas, I closed up the bakery, and went back into the corporate world. But, let's be honest, I REALLY missed weddings! After growing up with a photographer father, one day I just decided "I'm going to go be a wedding photographer!". It was my Elle Woods moment. I knew absolutely nothing, but it was the best decision for me! I get to be a part of the most important day of a couple's life and give them memories to look back on. After losing some important people, I truly value the images I have of them. Photos are how we keep loved ones alive, and I always feel so honored when I get to provide that for others.

Every time I look through our pictures (which is all the time!) I am brought back to the best day of our lives in a very visceral way. She captured all of the little details, the moments shared between our friends, my dad’s hidden tears, and kisses snuck on the dancefloor.

No celebration is complete without some bubbly, am I right?? And by celebration, I mean Thursday.

ARE WE THE PERFECT FIT?
The moments you don't even realize are happening. Your groom's face as he sees you for the first time. Your dad wiping that lone tear as you recess down the aisle. This. This is what gives me life!

Life has a funny way of unfolding, doesn't it? I truly believe that photos are how we keep our memories (and our loved ones) alive. Whether in an album, or a framed print, these special moments are all we have once the cake is eaten and the bouquet is tossed.

When I got married in 2012, photography was my biggest budget item. I didn't quite understand why at that point, but I just knew it was important. When I looked through my wedding photos, there were some great images. Some I fell in love with right away. Some I thought were cute, but they didn't evoke an emotion at that time. One in particular was an image of my (maternal) grandfather dancing. He was dancing with my (paternal) grandmother. It was a cute image, but not something that "meant" something.
Flash forward 4 years. My grandfather had passed away, and I remember randomly going back through my wedding images. I stumbled upon that image. I cried. Legit ugly cried in the middle of my floor. Because life had happened, that image meant SO much more to me now. It occurred to me that these images would mean something different to me throughout my life, and that is what drives me now that I'm a wedding photographer. I want that for my couples. BTW, that image is still sitting in a frame in my office to this day.
