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!!

The Knot Texas

Being published in print is something that fulfills every photographer to no end. We spend countless hours behind the camera and computer composing subjects & tweaking images until we are blue in the face. We wear many hats so it feels great when that hard work and diligence is recognized and duly noted. I was ecstatic when The Knot Texas contacted me saying they stumbled across my blog and wanted to feature Lane & Alan's wedding in their Fall/Winter edition. The magazine should hit shelves soon, so make sure and grab a copy to support all the wonderful vendors who collaborated on this lovely wedding.

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.

Garza + Warren. San Antonio, Texas

Grant + Hall. Dallas, Texas.

Jones + Keller. Boerne, Texas.

Pickering + Stone. Fort Worth, Texas

Casanova + Jaynes. New Orleans, Louisiana.

Sheets + McArdle. Dallas, Texas

Brittney + Matt. McKinney, Texas. Second Shooter for Jess Barfield.

Roley + Goetz. Lubbock, Texas

Holder + Pender. Lubbock, Texas.

Pickens + Vann. College Station, Texas.

Felton + Nahoum. Lubbock, Texas.

Lane + Alan, the wedding.

Alan and Lane were practically made for each other. They're both fun loving people who define the party wherever they go. Just check out the groom busting some sweet moves on the dance floor below and you'll know exactly what I mean! Their wedding was a throw back to our TTU college years and almost felt like a Kappa/ Phi Delt reunion!! I loved every minute of shooting their big day, especially since I could reconnect with Lane and so many of my KKG sisters!! Wishing all the best to you and Alan, & judging by the tone of your wedding, you've got a very fun life ahead of you!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful occasion, xo.

Lindsey + Jackson, the wedding.

Lindsey and Jackson are one of those couples you look at and basically wish you could know. They are fun, obviously beautiful, but most importantly unconditionally kind. I can't even tell you how many times working with Lindsey, she asked me what I needed or what she could do to help me. You know you've hit the jackpot with a bride when she genuinely wants you to be comfortable and happy on HER wedding day. It's obvious where these two learned their "good home training", as both sets of parents are just as sweet. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree in this case, and I enjoyed getting to know their families throughout the wedding festivities as well. I can honestly say, this is one of those weddings that just gives you a warm fuzzy all over. A big thanks to the team at College Flowers for preparing such a wonderful event!! Please meet and fall in love with the new Mr. and Mrs. Jackson Nahoum. Best wishes to a long life full of happiness and love. Cheers!

Elizabeth + Ben. The Wedding.

Elizabeth and I are old acquaintances from back in day of firecracker bangs and Keds tennis shoes. After growing up in Lubbock, we both went to UT the same year and saw each other at the occasional mixer enabling us to stay in touch. I've always loved Elizabeth's eclectic taste and just knew her wedding would reflect her unique and amazing style. She got married this past weekend here in Lubbock at Lakeridge Methodist Church followed by a beautiful Lubbock Country Club reception adorned by the floral geniuses at College Flowers. As always, I must thank the fabulous Amy-Rose King for shooting this wedding along side me, she's truly the best. Having been at UT the same time as Elizabeth is was a treat to see so many of my old Austin friends and even more fun to watch everyone having an absolute blast on the dance floor. The Don Caldwell Band made the reception complete and definitely was the hit of the night. Elizabeth & Ben, you are an adorable couple, thanks so much for including me in your big day. Happy Honeymoon!!

Natasha + Russell

Meet Natasha & Russell, a fabulous Lubbock couple. I had a great time shooting their wedding. Russell served time in Iraq and the two tied the knot shortly after Veterans' Day which made the union even more special. Many of his marine friends traveled from corners of the country to participate in the excitement, just validating the brother-like bond that so many of our troops share. It was a special event, and I was very proud to be a part of it all. Thanks you two and I wish you a lifetime of happiness! Life's a flash, capture accordingly.

Kellyn + Carey, the wedding.

As promised here is Carey & Kellyn's adorable wedding post. Their wedding took place at the Lubbock Windmill Museum and was infused with lots of quaint West Texas flair. Their wedding was a great time and since Carey and I are from the same high school, I got to catch up with a number of old acquaintances I hadn't seen in a while! I really got to know Carey and Kellyn through their engagement session & Kellyn's bridal session and wish them a life full of happiness. Congratulations you two!!

Lindsey + Colton. The Wedding.

Lindsey and Colton Glasscock tied the knot a few weeks ago, and I'm sure glad they invited me to be a part of their big event! My amazing second shooter for the day, Therese Barrett, and I had a blast capturing the details and emotions that the day had to offer. Therese was fabulous and has such an eye for capturing little ones (which is her forte, check out her website). My job never gets old, as each new event offers fresh and exciting moments to photograph. The bride's sister Lauren is a creative type as well, and set up an awesome time lapse of the wedding & reception. I totally want to learn how to do this, it's great! With no further adieu, let's get to the images & let them do the talking! Enjoy.

Carly + Travis: The Wedding

Carly and Travis are one of those couples you catch yourself staring at adoringly. Maybe it's because they are so darn cute together, or perhaps how contagious their love is for one another. Looking back through these images, I can't help but smile at the way Travis looks at Carly. As the story goes, Travis fell hard for Carly when she wasn't available and was already dating someone else. Apparently this didn't phase Travis, and he waited years for his chance to sweep her off her feet. Needless to say, he got his long awaited opportunity and the rest is history. It's stories like this that make my heart melt, and it's people like Carly and Travis that make my job so addicting! Thank you both for letting me be a part of your big day. Also, a big thanks to my sweet mom, Candy Thames, for coming along to this wedding as my second shooter (and moral supporter!). If you get a chance, go check out Clayton Stringer's video from this wedding. He just recently started a new videography business and is very talented and a pleasure to work with! Carly & Travis, you two have a beautiful future full of love and happiness. I wish you ALL the best. Thanks again.

Brandon + Stacy: The Wedding

I was so honored and thrilled to be a part of Brandon & Stacy's big day on May 7th, 2011 at the Historic Baker Building of Lubbock. I got to know these lovebirds back in the fall when we initially met for their engagement session. Needless to say, these two are easy going AND easy on the eyes! I just love how in love they are. I'm feeling especially mushy tonight, partly because I'm holding my brand new beautiful baby niece in my lap as I type this, and partly because it's 4:00am and I can't sleep in this stiff chair they call the "visitor's bed" here at the hospital. Enough of my baby babbling, I'll be posting MUCH more about Miss Madeley Marie McDowell later this week, but as for now this post is about the beautiful newlyweds. Stacy & Brandon! Their wedding was perfect from every angle and the reception was a hoot. They are surrounded by such fun family & friends. By the end of the reception I had picked up a few new dance moves, thanks to some of the more distinguished groomsmen! Also, a big thanks to my old friend & second shooter Brittany Jones of Brit Jones Photography. She and I had so much fun together and she really helped me to capture the details of the big day. Hope you all enjoy.
