Bre + Lukas’ Lone Oak Barn Wedding

Rustic Barn Wedding in Round Rock, Texas One of my favorite things to experience at a wedding is witnessing firsthand how God has shaped the lives of the bride and groom and brought them together. These two have been together for over SIX YEARS now, and it’s so evident that they are truly meant to […]

Kate & Zach’s White Rock Lake Engagement

Y’ALL. I don’t think I’ve EVER been more obsessed with an engagement session! I met Kate through our sorority at Baylor (go Tri Delta), and I was so excited when she reached out to me about shooting their wedding! We met up for coffee and it was so great getting to know her better and hearing […]

Hanah & Keon’s Plano Engagement Session

These two are the SWEETEST!! Hanah & Keon are both Baylor grads (sic ’em!) and it was so much fun to finally meet them during their engagement session at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano! They endured some pretty brutal Texas heat and still managed to look like models the whole time. I’ve also […]

Tips for Shooting in Manual Mode

Up until about my sophomore year of high school, I shot in either Automatic mode or Aperture priority mode on my camera. I was happy enough with my final images, but I could never get my images to look great straight out of the camera. I knew the only way to fix that was to learn how […]

Meredith & Brandon’s Firefly Gardens Wedding

This summer has been a little bit slow for me, because I intentionally decided not to book a bunch of weddings and sessions until I knew where I’d be living after graduation (life update: I’m officially in Dallas and in the process of moving into my new apartment! Yay!!). I’m in several online photography groups […]

Favorite Summer Engagement Session Dresses

Something I hear from a lot of my clients is that they don’t know what to wear for their session! And trust me, I get it! Even as a photographer who knows what looks good on camera, I still struggled to find the perfect outfit! Since I’m a big fan of online shopping and also […]

Liz reached out to me several months ago and said her friend Courtney had found super cheap plane tickets to Iceland. Then they asked if I wanted to go, and of course, I […]
