Whitney, Dallas Bridals

Hands down, Whitney is one of the most thoughtful brides I've ever had the pleasure of working with. This sweet girl booked me a year before her wedding and within the past 12 months I feel like we have become more friends than colleagues. Whitney is such a genuine spirit and always goes out of her way to make sure I feel appreciated. She is no doubt my most organized bride and made each of our collaborations effortless and fun. I was honored to photograph her wedding this past weekend, and cannot wait to share the beautiful images soon!! Whitney, I'm so sad you're no longer a Texas girl, but I know we will stay in touch for years to come. You are a true joy and I'm so incredibly thankful we've crossed paths. Thanks for being you.

Bonus!! I LOVED that Whitney brought her mom's vintage wedding dress to her bridal shoot. Check out her precious boho bridals in her mom's dress below, just for fun!

Sarah + Brendon, Dallas Wedding

Sarah and Brendon's big day was one of the most lovely, fall festive, and heartfelt weddings I've had the pleasure of photographing.

Best wishes to you Brendon and Sarah, and cheers to this new chapter in your lives.

I've been so excited for this particular day since I first met sweet Liz. She careful crafted and planned the most beautiful wedding- and with the amazing talents of Stems of Dallas, Caroline Fair Events & Lindsey Zamora- the day was absolutely flawless. The reception took place at the Room on Main, which is one of my new personal favorites, the space is magical! Not even the rain could put a damper on Liz and Travis' wedding, as it set a perfect backdrop of yummy light and freshness all around. Liz and Travis are exactly the match I love to photograph; fun, totally in love, and down to earth, the perfect combination. Bless you guys and thanks so much for sharing this incredible moment with us.

Kat + Paul, Dallas Wedding Photography

Kat and Paul are hands down one of the funniest and most candid couples I've worked with!! Their personalities are so dynamic and fit one another just perfectly. I knew when I worked with them for their engagement session that their wedding day would not disappoint!! These two intricately choreographed the most hysterical first dance, which actually showcased some pretty awesome technical skill!! Their wedding day was such a joy and was flawlessly coordinated by the fabulous DFW Events, Inc. Stems of Dallas provided the lovely florals, and the adoooorable Amanda Marie of Amanda Marie Portraits accompanied me as a phenomenal second shooter. Kat & Paul, thank you for trusting us with your day, it was such a joy.

Allison + Matt, the wedding.

Allison & Matt are celebrating their newlywed bliss and I am so happy to share this sneak peek of their wedding day. Allison is as sweet and ladylike as she looks and I just loved how organized and prepared she was for her wedding. Her vision of soft pinks and greens paired with vintage silver serving pieces came to life beautifully at her timeless wedding reception. Be sure to check out the adorable wedding favors displayed on vintage cake stands, which the bride collects!!  Too sweet I tell ya!! Enjoy!

A big thanks to this cute lady for second shooting!!

Native Texas Styled Shoot with Lindsey Zamora featured on Ruffled!

I'm so excited to share that HAD&P and Lindsey Zamora have been featured on Ruffled today!! Go over and check it out to see this amazing shoot styled and creatively directed by the ultimate creative genius, Lindsey Zamora. Lindsey and I worked hard to create a shoot that encompassed raw Texas landscape infused with hints of native influence. The shoot exhibits classic refined elements paired with an edgy and southwestern concept, appropriately on trend. We had a blast working together on every detail of the creative design and became fast friends on our weekend getaway to our family ranch in Post, Texas where we photographed the setup. Lindsey's amazing husband Robert Zamora provided the intricate wood work you see throughout the shoot. This dynamic couple designed the cake stand and table topper out of wood to be modularly placed underneath the fine china, creating the most perfect juxtaposition. I'm so thankful to all of our fantastic vendors who collaborated with us on this shoot. Kelly Marble of College Flowers out of Lubbock Texas supplied us with the most beautiful blend of soft unique florals with touches of succulents and dusty miller. One of our favorite surprises was the unexpected and oversized agave leaf he used as the center piece of the table scape. Lauren Essl of Blue Eye Brown Eye supplied us with the most unique calligraphy and vintage stamps. Her wonderful penmanship is an art form we were thankful to incorporate as it gave the shoot an underlying elegance paired with the graphic letterpress designs by Bella Figura. My sweet friend Traci Robinette and her husband Clay volunteered to be our models and did a fantastic job despite the unseasonable chilly weather! Traci's mom Marla Felton from Lubbock designed the beautiful wedding cake and is one talented lady with baked goods!! Thanks to Suite 206 for lending us the ahhhhh-mazing lucite ghost chairs and Gloss Luxury Rentals for the copper cake table. We love love love this shoot and hope you do to!!

Elizabeth + Ryan, East Texas Wedding Photography

Understated elegance is what comes to mind when I think of the new Mrs. Ryan Baumgardner. She is a class act and a dear KKG sister of mine. My heart always melts when sweet friends from my past ask me to photograph their weddings. There is no greater compliment than knowing they trust me to capture the love and emotion of the most special day of their life. Elizabeth and Ryan are truly a perfect match and accent one another in such a wonderful way. I've loved getting to watch these two navigate their wedding bliss as I've had the pleasure of documenting their engagement, bridals, and now this lovely east Texas wedding. Godspeed you two.

Thanks to my sweet friends Brittany Jones for second shooting!! You are too much fun to work with and I appreciate your hard work more than you know!!

Paul + Kat, Dallas Engagement

I'm so excited to be photographing Kat & Paul's wedding festivities this coming June!! These two are so much fun and Paul certainly gets the award for funniest groom yet. He had us laughing the entire afternoon. Kat & Paul are certainly in for a future full of laughter and fun!! I'm so thankful to have reconnected with sweet Kat, she is a gem and I adore everything about her! Enjoy their fun & flirty engagement session!!

HAD&P Weddings of 2012

It is officially March 1st and I'm finally getting a second to take a look back and reflect on all the beautiful HAD&P weddings of 2012!! Whew, what a year it was. Between having a baby, moving, and re-establishing in a new town, there was no time to spare! 2012 was a year full of change and growth and I cannot wait to use what I've learned and apply it to all the new and upcoming ventures of 2013. Below is a quick glance back at the weddings of 2012.  I am beyond humbled and eternally grateful to have played a small role in each one of these beautiful occasions. Thank you to all the wonderful couples who have trusted me to document their precious weddings.

Sarah + Matthew, a Dallas Wedding

This wedding was lovely in every way. I'm currently a big fan of succulents, earth tone linens, and shades of poppy splashed with Tiffany blue. Sarah and Matthew are a match made in heaven. In fact, Matthew is the cousin to one of my best childhood friends, Meg. We used to always joke about the Hall brothers who happened to be twins and whose pictures were displayed on their family fridge. Since 7th grade, all of our friends secretly had imaginary weddings planned with one of the two. When Sarah asked me to photograph her wedding I had never met the groom. We had our initial meeting and she showed me a picture of Matt and I just knew he looked so familiar. Ha, little did I know he was the man behind that very refrigerator picture at Meg's house from so many years ago!! It is such a small world and I feel so fortunate to know Sarah. She and my brother were friends all through school and she is a true gem of a bride. She is so soft spoken and as sweet as she looks. It was a joy to be at their ceremony, as it was one of the sweetest I've seen yet. Thank you both for including me on your wedding day and best wishes in the future!

Caroline + Jerad, the wedding

This wedding was a photographer's dream come true. Simply put it was chic, elegant, and classic from start to finish. Caroline and her adorable mom did a fantastic job planning this wedding and every detail literally had me "ewwwing and ahhing". The bride actually bedazzled her shoes with rhinestones, one by one, now that's attention to detail. Amy-Rose and I were slightly obsessed. Caroline and Jerad are one of those couples who even when the camera isn't on them, are completely immersed in one another. I had to literally drag them off the dance floor to get a few fun images at the reception (for which they were total sports!!). Truly October 22nd was one of those days where the stars aligned; a bride I adore, a totally classic setting, and my absolute favorite second shooter, Amy-Rose King. I may refer to her as my second shooter for some weddings, but let's not kid ourselves.... Amy-Rose is seriously the most amazing friend and mentor I could ever ask for. In fact most of the awesome shots involving flash below are compliments of Amy-Rose. She is teaching me new tricks and I love her for that!! The weekend was a blast and our road trip to Dallas was full of fun. We even had a chance run-in with fellow photographer Linda Schilberg in Sweetwater! It's a small world, and I'm thankful for that. If it wasn't for this small world Caroline & I would have never met and I would have never gotten to photograph this amazing event. A big thanks to everyone involved. I hope you all enjoy, I know I did!!

Amy-Rose & I looking slightly worn out by this point. There was a pretty commical montage leading up to this picture, but for the sake of appearing professional I limited it to just one.

Life's a flash, capture accordingly.
