Taylor + Craig

This sweet couple makes me so happy. Craig and my husband Ryan went to medical school together back in Lubbock and were fast friends. Between their love for sports, orthopedics, and all things masculine I could never really get a word in edgewise. Craig lived with us for a short time while he was here in Fort Worth for a rotation last fall and would talk about his sweet Taylor frequently. I was so thrilled when our subject matter shifted from ESPN to his love for this girl!! When I got the news that they were engaged to be married I was so excited!! You guys are seriously adorable. Can't wait for many more memories to come!!

Amanda + Reid Engagements

Amanda and I have known each other since before junior high. You can imagine knowing someone that long that we've gone through many awkward adolescent stages together!! I recently came across some pretty comical junior high hand written notes that we sent back and forth to each other no doubt during important classroom time. We even played on the same basketball team which was coached by her dad!! The Booher family is seriously one of my favorites and I just love Amanda to pieces. I'm so excited to be involved with her wedding this spring and am thrilled to share these adorable engagement images from my trip to Lubbock a few weeks back. Amanda and Reid are such a sweet pair and I can't wait to watch their story unfold!!

Neely + Cody

I simply adore this couple!! Neely and Cody are just as sweet as they look, and I'm so excited to be photographing their Hill Country wedding at the end of October. Their engagement session was such a breath of fresh air and I cannot wait to see what this beautiful couple has in store for their big day. Until then, enjoy this very romantic engagement session.

Britney + Brandon

Britney & Brandon are an adorable Lubbock couple who I got to spend time with this past fall. Ironically enough, Britney and I worked together for a very short time at a cute boutique while in high school maaaany moons ago. Luckily we've been able to stay in touch here in there through the years and I was thrilled when she called me for her engagement session. Next on the agenda, her bridals, which are coming soon, but once again....you'll have to wait!! Enjoy.

Emily + Stephen

I'm aware that it's a major give away how behind I am on blogging when it's the dead of winter &  I post pictures with beautiful green ivy & lush golden light. I may be backed up on blogging, but it's somewhat of a blessing because it's reminding me of that beautiful time of year that's just right around the corner! Looking through these images is sparking my inspiration for new ideas this spring and I catch myself day dreaming of sunny evenings with greener pastures. Emily & Stephen are high on love and it's so adorable to watch. Emily and I were fellow Kappa's together at Tech and it was so much fun to reconnect through our photography session. Her bridals are just around the corner and I can't wait to see this girl in her beautiful dress... of course you guys will have to wait until AFTER the wedding day...but for now enjoy these two love birds from their sunny engagement session from back this fall.

Chris + Shannon

Chris, Shannon & I go WAY back. Chris and I are practically brother and sister...and I mean that literally. We love each other but somehow manage to bicker like cats & dogs. When I transferred back to TTU from UT my Jr. year, I was instantly part of the "boys" club. It was Ryan (my now husband), Chris, Brady & me. We had the BEST time and I seriously considered writing a sit-com during those days. The things I saw and heard were pretty unimaginable, and I was thankful I was raised with a brother for preparation. You guys can only imagine how THRILLED I was when Chris started dating Shannon and I had a fellow lady in the group!! Shannon and I talked fashion in place of football which was a refreshing topic change from the normal meathead discussions I had become so accustomed to having! She was someone I could roll my eyes and laugh with and who definitely understood that it wasn't normal to drink an entire keg of  beer between 7 people in one day. Shannon is one of my favorite people in the world and I'm SO excited to watch her and Chris start their lives together. They are getting married this coming March, and it will be one heck of a celebration!! I can't wait! Love you guys!!

Lindsey + Colton = Engagement

Lindsey and Colton are  a fabulous match. I actually went to high school with Lindsey (many moons ago) and although we were never in the same class, we still managed to keep in touch all these years! I was so flattered when she asked me to be part of her wedding & all that it entails. I've had fun getting to spend more time with her during our Olive Garden dates and various shoots. The day of our engagement session when I met her fiance Colton, I mentioned to him that I might call him Clayton on accident. My best friend dates a "Clayton" and it just seemed to fit. After being completely immersed in my camera & working through the technical aspects of the shoot, I looked up and sure enough said "Clayton, can you move to the left". After that it was a self fulfilling prophecy and my mind block was set in stone. I referred to him as Clayton 3 more times, and after my inadequate name calling he finally played back calling me Hannah. I was ok with it and admired the quick whit. So "Clayton", I promise to get it right on your wedding day, thanks for putting up with me and my shenanigans. You guys are great and I had a blast during our shoot!!

Cori + Josh

I had an blast with Cori & Josh during their engagement session a couple weeks back. Josh has a house near Lake Allen Henry so we decided to meet in Post, Texas. We captured some cute small-town shots then ventured out to the lake. Once we were in the blazing heat and all dressed up, we found ourselves wishing we had our bathing suits, a boat, and a cooler of beer. I was so pumped when Cori mentioned the lake, because even just seeing water was a treat in this awful drought! These two are set to get married in Amarillo this December for a beautiful winter wedding. It's so funny, because Cori was good friends with some of my good friends growing up, and finally we put 2 & 2 together at the end of our shoot and discovered the connection! Everyone in Texas is somehow connected I swear, and I'm happy to now be connected to this adorable couple! Meet Cori & Josh. Life's a flash, capture accordingly.

Traci + Clay

What better way to start out 2011 than with one seriously fabulous couple. Traci & Clay are set to be married next June and asked me to take some formal (yet fun) engagements pictures of the two of them. We had a quick mini- session with one outfit and two locations, but got a lot of really great images in our short time together... seriously, how could anyone not with this cute of a pair? Traci and I have always been acquaintances, but have never spent much time together... I've absolutely LOVED getting to know this girl better over the past couple of weeks and have to say that this is a prime example of why I love my job, getting to know people and making new relationships!! Traci sells Stella & Dot jewelry, which if you haven't checked it out, you should- it's fabulous! I have these earings (thanks to my awesome mother-in-law).

and desperately want this necklace- please someone tell my husband.

Any-who, if you like this jewelry hit up Traci Felton to buy it! You can find her on facebook. Now, onto the images! ahhhh, love...

Stacy + Brandon

I have been antsy to share these pictures from Stacy & Brandon's engagement session but have waited because I wanted them to be the first images shown on my new blog! Stacy called me recently to inquire about a wedding photographer and we ended up clicking (yes. pun intended!) like we had been friends all along. I'm super excited to photograph their wedding this coming summer and am having a blast getting to know them in the meantime. Stacy and Brandon are seriously one hot couple. Yes, I know it is so cliche to say "Oh, their so in love, blah blah blah.... but seriously, the way these two look at each other is enough to make a girl crave a good Reese Witherspoon romantic comedy! Stacy is a hoot and I can only imagine the fun we are going to have getting ready for the wedding. I'm so pumped to be a part of this amazing time in their lives, and am even more grateful to have two new friends. Enjoy! life's a flash, capture accordingly
