Dallas wedding photographer

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.

Left my engineering job to pursue photography full-time and never looked back!

Flash forward four years.  My grandfather had passed away.  I was randomly going through my box of prints and came across that image.  I immediately broke down and cried.  It was such a simple, candid image, but it showed so much happiness and life.  I could feel how they were feeling in that moment.  I could almost transport myself right to that moment.  It occurred to me that images are how we keep our loved ones alive.  When the cake is eaten, and life has managed to unfold, these images are what's left to build a legacy.

When I got married in 2012, I didn't know the impact my wedding images would have on me.  I knew investing in these memories was important, but didn't understand the gravity at that moment.  From the moment I received my images from our photographer, I was instantly drawn to the portraits of my new husband and me (which is totally understandable given I was a new wife!), but the candids just kind of fell to the wayside.  One of those images was a picture of my grandparents dancing, smiling, and having the best time.
