A Target engagement session? You bet! When Jessica texted me saying, “Soooo how do you feel about photos at Target?”, my answer obviously had to be, “Love it!” We then started brainstorming ideas for an additional location meaningful to them as a couple. Derek proposed at Sundance Square, and they met and fell in love working at Target. I’m so happy they chose both of these locations. I really enjoyed getting to know the both of them and their sweet pup Oreo. (I mean, LOOK at his bow tie! Obsessed!)
I’m counting down the weeks until it’s time to head to Colorado Springs to photograph their elopement this summer. We are beyond excited!
Now I can cross a Target engagement session off of my list. This has been a very good year so far!! Curious about my past work? You can view my past engagement photo work here.
Molly and Dustin’s Room on Main wedding day was absolute perfection! In true Texas Spring fashion, we had a forecast of 100% rain, so we were prepared with several different backup plans and my trusty Dark Sky app on my watch. Luckily, their pre-wedding preparations were taking place in a penthouse at the iconic Joule Hotel in Downtown Dallas – AND the rain held off right when we needed it to!
Molly and Dustin’s wedding style had a modern, quirky vibe with bridesmaids rocking beautiful white dresses (seriously – this needs to be more of a trend!) The flowers emphasized greenery and the white balloons were the perfect unique ceremony touch. Also, anyone who has their officiant add Method Man lyrics to their ceremony script is A++ in my book! It was an absolute honor and pleasure to photograph this wedding and work with them throughout the process. Be sure to scroll down to see the vendors who helped make their wedding day happen!
Molly and Dustin, congratulations again. We are so over the moon for you two! Have the best honeymoon ever!
Casey and Mike’s The Lumen Room engagement session was actually a second round of their engagement photos due to cold weather and living out of town! We photographed our first round quickly with a mini session (in the freezing cold and a bit of rain) at Prairie Creek Park, and I didn’t yet have my blogging-immediately-to-share-sneak-peek routine down – so that post will be coming up later on :)
Casey and Mike live up in Seattle – so when yesterday’s forecast was an unseasonably 35 degrees with 20MPH winds in April, we opted to book an indoor studio space instead. I LOVE the results and am very grateful for the variety of natural light studio spaces that are available all around Dallas. If you’re a photographer looking for a beautiful space – definitely check out The Lumen Room!
I think it goes without saying that I am so looking forward to their wedding at Cross Creek Ranch later this year.
You guys make cold weather look good. Shoutout to Texas weather for being typically unpredictable – we will make it work regardless!
Are you recently engaged? I’d love to talk about why you should consider booking an engagement session with me before your wedding. View my engagement portfolio and shoot me an email if you’d like to chat!
Rachel and Matt had an absolutely lovely 809 at Vickery Wedding and we’re just a few days away from their one year anniversary! Enough time has passed that we even got to meet up with them in their neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY for coffee, which was a treat to say the least! Their wedding day was extra special in that Matt’s family is mostly from New Jersey, so a lot of his relatives were visiting Texas. In my opinion, it doesn’t get much more Texan than Fort Worth! The weather was beautiful (even if it was a little bit windy – we went with it and it totally worked in our favor) and their celebration perfectly reflected how they are as a couple.
I’m so thankful to have a job where I don’t simply document moments and milestones, I make friends along the way.
Enjoy all the classic details and loving candid moments below.
This moment below is my why. Matt’s priceless expression, and Rachel’s reaction.
This was such a treat – introducing Rachel and Matt to my sister in law and fiance (who happen to live in the same NYC neighborhood!) and getting coffee on New Year’s Day :)

Ariel and Matt tied the knot with a beautiful Marty Leonard Chapel wedding ceremony and intimate wedding reception at Matt’s parent’s home. It was such a treat to photograph for a group of friends we’ve already worked with in the past (see Evelyn and Mike’s Perot Museum Wedding here). So when Ariel reached out about us photographing her and Matt’s wedding, I was beyond excited! They kept it simple and intimate with 60 guests in attendance but were sure to make plenty of time for portraits. The ceremony was accompanied by a pianist, and they were announced down the aisle with the theme from “Up” playing – Nick liked it so much he came home and figured it out on the piano while I was backing up their files! Their reception was laid back with a brunch theme – who doesn’t love a brunch wedding? They served sweet and savory crepes from Whisk&Eggs, and you know Nick and I got down with those!
I hope you enjoy their wedding day preview photos as much as we loved taking them.
Ariel and Matt, it was an absolute honor to photograph your simply perfect wedding day!
