the Thomas Family | Amarillo Family Photographer

Did you know that i offer special pricing for a select group of people? Single Parents, Military, First Responders and families battling illness. Take me up on it! There are few things that i enjoy more than giving back to other who serve or those that are in need. Photography should not be a luxury. Want to know if you can get special pricing? Read more HERE

Now what the business is out of the way… can we take a second to gawk at this family? Yes??? ok great! Trent, Cali and their children are a beautiful family. Cali makes like 5000% of their clothing (her pink jumper as an example). Which blows my mind! But the best part of meeting these people is being able to hang out with them and laugh with them. We always have the best of times.

Dillan and Alex | Married

I first met Alex and Dillan a couple of years ago. And while our time together was brief, it was easy to see how much they cared about each other and how much Dillan loved this woman. There is something very sweet and tender about their relationship.

Fast forward to their wedding day. The day began just as any wedding – people hurrying about, the nervous excitement, the anxious glances out the window… but in the quiet moments before their wedding, they read letters from each other and everything came back to this centripetal force at the core of their relationship, and now marriage.

This day was a day full of joy and celebration. And one that i will never forget.

bGlendenning000bGlendenning001Let’s talk about this wedding gown! Alex’s mom, Kim, mad this dress.  I have never seen anything like this and was completely in awe!bGlendenning002bGlendenning003bGlendenning004bGlendenning005bGlendenning006bGlendenning007bGlendenning008bGlendenning009bGlendenning010bGlendenning011I have had the honor of knowing this family for years. When Alex told me she wanted to have a first look with her brothers, I could feel how important it was to her. This is one of my most favorite moments of this entire day. bGlendenning012bGlendenning013bGlendenning014bGlendenning015bGlendenning016bGlendenning017bGlendenning018but this is my favorite moment. Dillan read vows to Aubrey that were so heartfelt and stunning that the entire crowd was in tears. bGlendenning019bGlendenning020bGlendenning021bGlendenning022bGlendenning023bGlendenning024bGlendenning025bGlendenning026bGlendenning027bGlendenning028bGlendenning029bGlendenning030bGlendenning031bGlendenning032bGlendenning033bGlendenning034bGlendenning035bGlendenning036bGlendenning037bGlendenning038bGlendenning039bGlendenning040bGlendenning041bGlendenning042bGlendenning043Dillan and Alex – i have never met a more amazing couple. You are both so ambitious and strong. I have no doubt that you will both accomplish so much individually and as a family. It was a complete honor to photograph this part of your lives together. I am so excited to see what unfolds for all of you!

Oliver turns 3!

So this little guy… he is one of the most hipster toddlers i know. is that a thing? if not… he’s made it a thing.

anyway… he turns three soon. and is just the cutest little guy in suspenders ever. I always enjoy photographing this family because it is basically like a play date. We hang out, play, laugh, listen to Jimmy’s dad jokes and chase oliver around. true story
