I truly cannot wait for Lindsey and Justin's Fort Worth wedding this fall!! Lindsey and I went to college together, and I just love that we've recently reconnected! She is in the midst of starting her own event styling company Blah Blah Blush and I couldn't be more excited for her!! I adore her taste, and even more, I adore her!!
This stunning Fort Worth wedding was such an honor to be a part of. Being new to the area, I feel so blessed to have met and worked with some of Fort Worth's finest families. The Oswalds and the Motherals could not have been more graceful in hosting such a beautiful wedding weekend and I'm so grateful I was able to share. It rained & it poured, but no amount of downfall could dampen such a splendid occasion. Martha and Paxton congrats on your beautiful wedding, you guys are wonderful together.

This charming Brownwood wedding was such a sweet occasion. I'm still reminiscing over the lovely historical home where the bride dressed, seriously so quaint and only in a small town. Kelcey and I were (you guessed it) KKG's together and I'm so excited to share her beautiful wedding day. Best wishes to Kelcey and Bart, we'll see you in Cowtown!
Also, a very big thank you to the sweetest second shooter, Sammie Culpepper you are such a hard worker and a true genuine talent!!
This love is real, this love is genuine, and this love has been handcrafted & intricately created for these two amazing people. I am so honored to know Lindsay and Garrett. They are the type of couple you're lucky to meet at least once in your life. Hearing the speeches given at their rehearsal dinner, I was truly awestruck and moved to learn their story and how incredibly intentional the Lord has been in their relationship.
Their wedding fell on the most magical January day you could wish for…warm, golden light, and overflowing love from every corner. These two families are filled with such incredible spirits and it was truly uplifting to document such a perfect union. Lindsay and Garrett, you guys are so right for each other and I cannot wait to see what's in store for your future together. You two will do amazing things. Thank you for allowing me to play a role in your wedding day, it was such an honor.
Sarah and Brendon's big day was one of the most lovely, fall festive, and heartfelt weddings I've had the pleasure of photographing. I've loved getting to know Sarah throughout the past few months and can't help but be in awe of her captivating spirit and genuine heart. Best wishes to you Brendon and Sarah, and cheers to this new chapter in your lives.

I'm was so honored when The Knot Texas contacted me to feature Emily and Russ's beautiful Hill Country Wedding in PRINT!! Their magical day filled with whimsical yellow, natural kraft, and bold black & white stripes has left an imprint on my heart ever since last June. This classic occasion is still one of my very favorite weddings I've photographed and I'm so thankful The Knot Texas felt that same appeal. I'm forever grateful to the sweet bride Emily for her wonderful design eye and precious personality. A favorite for sure. Enjoy!
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.
A very heartfelt thanks to my sweet friend and the most talented wedding stylist I know, Lindsey Zamora. You truly are a creative genius. Any brides who are looking for someone to give a cohesive, unique, and upscale vision to your wedding styling, contact Lindsey. She's also available for "day of styling". Just look at her tool belt below, the girl isn't joking.
Also, thanks to my second shooter and adorable office assistant Vanessa Anderson for her endless enthusiasm for photography, love you friend!

Ashton and Matt got married on a gorgeous July afternoon. These two are a stunning couple and I loved getting to see Ashton, a former KKG sister of mine, so incredibly happy. The reception was at Joe T's, here in Fort Worth, and was one of the most laid-back and joyous weddings I've been a part of. The margaritas were flowing and I even got to take part in the festivities a bit! Every time I've gone to Joe T's I leave thinking how beautiful it would be for a photography backdrop, and I'm so thankful Ashton made it a reality! Ashton & Matt, all the best to your very bright future. Enjoy.
This incredible wedding was such a breath of fresh air. Emily and I were KKGs together back in college and have known each other for quite some time. When she asked me to be a part of her lovely La Cantera wedding weekend, I couldn't resist!! Ever since I got her adorable invitation in the mail (great work White Sparrow Design), I was hooked on this wedding scheme. I'm a sucker for black and white stripes, and the hints of yellow & gold sealed the deal. It was a recipe for success! Emily & Russ are as thoughtful as they come. They made us feel like we were part of the wedding and constantly shared their appreciation. I'm so incredibly blessed to have clients and friends with such substance. You guys are very loved and it was a complete honor to share this day with you. All the best!!
Thanks to the fun and fabulous Carmen Evans for traveling as my second shooter.
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 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!!
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!!
Sarah & Carter tied the knot this past February in OKC. You may recall it was a beautiful wedding and one heck of a party!! In lieu of bridal portraits beforehand, Sarah & Carter decided on a very clever "second look" post wedding option. I think this is a brilliant idea for traditional brides who oppose the "first look" idea and opt not to see your groom before the wedding on your big day. This option allows for the traditional wedding approach, yet enables you to document your newlywed bliss in your bridal attire without the stress of the wedding day. Carter played along (as every good groom should), dressing up alongside Sarah for a post wedding second look. I just love these two new friends and I'm obsessed with this idea.
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.

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!!
Words cannot describe the kind heart of this precious bride. Elizabeth and I were Kappas together in college and I was beyond thrilled to share in her joyous wedding day this past weekend in East Texas. I've been holding these beautiful images until today and now am proud to present the new Mrs. Ryan Baumgardner. You are a class act Elizabeth. Thanks for thinking of me to be part of your wonderful wedding. Sneak peek to come very soon!
