It has been quite some time since I have posted to my blog. Without many details, life has been running at a fast pace and I think I’m getting my bearings back. This is a boutique glimpse into the lovely weddings I was honored to photograph in 2016. Each couple is so very unique and special! Enjoy taking in the magic and loveliness of their beautiful matrimony. – Liz

Haley and Phillip’s wedding day has found them at the beautiful setting of Christ the King church in Dallas. There, these two shared a First Look, getting to see and embrace each other before they exchange their vows in a secluded courtyard garden enclosed by flowers and church bells and their love for each other.
We are brought to their reception at the W Hotel with VIP entrances, red carpets, pictures of the newlyweds on display as we all make that elevator journey to the 33rd floor – the Altitude, where toasts were lovingly made with twists of humor, and savory bites were relished, all in celebration of the love these two share.
Haley – you were, you are the beautiful, classic and gracious bride. Phillip – you are the kind man that holds her kite string as she soars in the sky. Thank you both for entrusting me to be a part of your day! It truly is a great honor! – Liz

Chelsey and Jake attended the same high school. Their lives collided again years after those school days and turned into a unforgettable romance. That romance led to this special day, overlooking beautiful White Rock Lake on a small hill at the Dallas Arboretum, surrounded by friends and family and some impossible Texas heat, which only commemorates the warmth and beauty of their love and their lives together! Chelsey and Jake – thank you both so much for the opportunity to photograph your beautiful ceremony. It is an honor to have a small role in your day! – Liz

These cuties are my neighbors. Meet Jackie and Nathan. Their love affair is an international one. Beginning in Germany, with a mix of military deployments, nursing school, language learning and some cute puppy dogs – then you get this amazing couple! I met Jackie on my door step. She was a gal on a mission of getting to know her neighborhood. My house was in the beginning phases of installing new floors in our dining room. Our conversation started with cordial neighborly exchange and ended in the hot mess express of my living room as I explain to her that ‘we don’t live like this; we are renovating a little.’
All that to say, on that day, I met a neighbor and a kindred heart and soul with these two.
Check out their fun and beautiful session in downtown. I see Jackie and the man she loves and Nathan, the man who loves her! – Liz

In most cases it really is about ‘Who You Know’; at least for Darrein and Travis. Their connection began at a mutual friend’s party and they are thanking the heavens for that night! This sweet couple loves to attend concerts, country dance, hang out with friends and crack a ton of jokes with eachother. This summer they will share their wedding vows with family and friends.

I so look forward to photographing their upcoming nuptials! For now, take a peek at their engagement session by beautiful White Rock Lake in Dallas! – Liz

I’ve always said there’s something about browned-eyed girls! Now that’s quite self serving for me, but Evie is no exception to that rule! Evie married her high school sweetheart over the weekend. For now, a peek into her bridal session gives a glimpse into this beautiful brunette’s world! You can revisit their engagement session here. – Liz

Allie and Chris are two major book readers. Not just any old book will do. Deep, intellectual stuff. The kinda stuff where my mind checks out and starts daydreaming about the CareBears (I would definitely be named Shares A Lot, by the way). Anyways, they have spent many hours in Denton and in particular, at their favorite book shop as students and lovebirds! So, I tagged along with them in Denton Square and captured some fun moments under the Texas sun! :) Denton is a great place to Hipster-watch too. Nonetheless, see their special and fun love below!! – Liz

Shaina’s dreams are coming true. Having recently passed her tests, she is now qualified to give aid to Ben’s heart which aches with love for her. Pass Nursing Exams – check, Get Married to Ben – check! :) Shaina and Ben exchanged wedding vows in front of a sweet assembly of friends and family at River Legacy Park. Ben’s childhood friend married them, their delicious reception was catered by both sides of the family with Filipino and Mexican dishes and after toasts were made with glasses held high, the much anticipated cake samplings, a romantic dance, they were sent off into a wintry gray evening.
Ben and Shaina, it was a great honor and pleasure to photograph your beautiful wedding day. May God smile upon your union and future together. With love – Liz

Her hair, her dress, the ring, her make-up.. coupled with our time at Lee Park, made for a smashing bridal session.
There’s nothing more beautiful than a bride in her dress – awaiting her day! See Shaina below and revisit her engagement session with Ben.. – Liz

She’s outnumbered 3 to 1 and wouldn’t have it any other way! Cortney lives in the land of Monsters Inc. toys, karate lessons, homework, running her Etsy Shop and making killer meals for her guys!
