Molly and Dustin’s Bishop Arts Engagement session was an adventure! I’m a fan of cold winter weather, but I’m not going to complain that Dallas, TX decided to provide us with beautiful 75 degree weather in December! With Christmas decorations going up it provided for a great and festive backdrop for their portraits. There are many fun murals to photograph in the area as well. It’s an artsy, funky place (which is kind of my jam).
I’m beyond excited to photograph their upcoming wedding at The Room on Main this Spring. One of my favorite venues :)

Chris and Nick’s Dallas Elopement took place at a park in Arlington called the Drying Beds. They take frequent trips there to walk and let their dog (and honorary bridal party member) Caju run around and play freely. I love that they chose such a personal location – so when they return they always have the memory of their wedding to look back on. They have several animals including Fredrick the bearded dragon (who was their ring bearer) and Norman the tortise! They make an absolutely adorable family and I couldn’t have been more honored to document their day.
I absolutely love photographing elopements! Are you getting married at the courthouse or in a place significant to you and your partner? Let’s talk!
Chris and Nick’s wedding was beautifully officiated by Weddings by Tina.
Lindsay and Mariano’s Magnolia Terrace Wedding took place on Friday the 13th. For most people, this date symbolizes bad luck, but to Lindsay and Mariano, it’s actually a date that is meaningful and special to them. Now, it’s officially their anniversary! Their wedding day was simple, vibrant, and had a touch of a whimsical charm. The best part about my job is the new friendships I’ve been able to make, both with wedding vendors and my wonderful clients. It’s been very special getting to know Lindsay throughout the planning process, and I’m so thrilled to have made a new friend after all of this!

Matt’s Dallas proposal to Maria yesterday at Prairie Creek Park was a true labor of love! Matt sent Maria on a scavenger hunt all over Plano with Maria’s best friend, Melanie. At the same time, he was setting up paintings (painted by Matt and Maria!), a “Will You Marry Me?” banner, and scouting out the best possible location to pop the question.
It was quite a successful hunt because Maria did say YES! It was heartwarming and quite an honor witnessing these two go from boyfriend and girlfriend to engaged. It’s so rare to see such a transformation in person. Matt, you did good!
Engagement season is coming. I’ve got a spiffy new contact form up and running. Let’s talk about how we can preserve your wedding day memories over coffee or happy hour!
River Legacy Park is, hands down, one of my top 10 favorite parks in Dallas/Fort Worth. I used to go exploring there at my time while studying photography at UTA. There are many trails and views of the Trinity River that make the perfect background for photos. Lindsey and Brett met up with me to go exploring around some of my favorite spots. I may sound redundant but I’m truly lucky to have the opportunity to serve couples like them.
If you’re wondering why to take engagement photos, here are several great reasons:
- We can get to know each other! If you’re more introverted (like I am) or feel awkward in front of the camera (like I do!) it’s a great way to break the ice and learn posing outside the inevitable scramble of your wedding day.
- You can do a “test run” with your makeup artist to ensure you love their style!
- You’ll have beautiful portraits to display in your home and at your wedding! Which, in my opinion, is a win-win.
