Ashton and Emma | Wedding

There is nothing I can say in this paragraph here that would encompass Ashton and Emma’s wedding day adequately. They had a beautiful day. It was such a peaceful and joyful day as everyone gathered around.

I photograph over 20 weddings a year; each special in their own way. I am often so caught up in working and photographing that I don’t slow down enough to feel. But on this day… every single one of us as witness could feel it. The joy. The love. The celebration.

and it just makes my job and life so fulfilling

In case any of you are wondering if a first look makes that “reveal” moment any less emotional or magical… Ashton and Emma. It has been a true joy and honor to know you. To photograph you. To celebrate you. And to love you. Thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer and for including me in your lives. This day will remain a highlight of my career. I am excited to see how you do marriage and life and family and can only hope that i’m along to document the ride!

be infinitely blessed

Bella | Ballet Portraits

Ballet, for me, is an expression. I often refer to it as “poetry in motion.” Any time anyone comes to me wanting to incorporate ballet into their portrait sessions, I clap uncontrollably like a kid on Christmas morning.

Bella showed up with this pancake tutu and I literally almost fell over from excitement!

Bella – you are a doll and I love getting to know you and cannot wait for more and more memories and photos with you!

Cardwell Family

It always brings a new level of happiness when I get to photograph clients that have shared their journey and memories with me through the years. Zac and Chelsi have brought me into their celebrations and milestones as they grow as a family.

I could not be more honored or humbled to continue to highlight their lives through photos.

as always, I have so much love for you all and am excited to meet this new little addition to your family!

Hagen and Taylor | Palo Duro Canyon Engagement

High school sweethearts. Hagen and Taylor are the two sweetest and most loving people I have had the good fortune to photograph. Their entire engagement session was filled with laughter and joy as we hiked to their favorite spots in the canyon. They spend a lot of time climbing and in the outdoors so they wanted to incorporate that into their session since it is such a big part of who they are as a couple.

The truth is…. Taylor only picked up Hagen’s love for climbing because she was hoping to impress him. But now, it is one of their favorite ways to bond with each other.

taylor…. you have no idea how much joy it brings me to see you THIS happy!

Hagen and Taylor…. I am beyond humbled to be on this journey with you still! it has been a complete joy to witness your relationship through the years. I love you both so very dearly and cannot wait to celebrate you next year!

Ellie | Class of 2018

I met this beautiful young lady a couple of years ago when she asked if she could shadow me. Since then, i have been so fascinated by her personality and the hard work she puts in to her future. She is officially a published photographer and surely has a great future ahead of her.

We met for her graduate session a few weeks ago and while i could never ever everrrrrr translate into photos how beautiful she is…. I had a great time photographing her!

Ellie! thank you so much for choosing me to highlight your senior year. but also, i truly appreciate what you bring to my life and how you inspire me to live and love. You should know that you are a true light to others, even if you aren’t always aware of it or know that they are even observing. I trust that you have a promising and adventurous future ahead of you and that you will do great things in this world!

be infinitely blessed!
