my name is chriselda. i'm a portrait and wedding photographer in Texas and absolutely LOVE my job as your photographer. There is nothing that i love more than getting to know my clients on a personal level and helping them create images that are unique to them. i truly adore each and every person that sits before me and trusts me with their smile, personality and heart.
“there are very few good surprises in life… this is one of them!” i recently explained when asked why i enjoyed photographing proposals.
When Reece first contacted me about photographing his proposal to Elizabeth, i was thrilled. He explained that he would be taking her down to the cabin that overlooks the Canyon where a private chef would prepare a special meal for them. He would take her out to the overlook and then ask her to be his.
this makes me beyond happy!Reece and Elizabeth – congratulations on a lifetime together. i am so humbled to have been there to photograph your beginning memories as a couple together! thank you from the best parts of me!
this momma. and her three boys. trust me – you will be hard pressed to find a better looking bunch. i don’t think you can call it work when you spend the entire session laughing with these boys.
amanda – your boys are such good kids. i literally could take them all home with me and call them mine forever. thanks for spending an evening with us. i am so so soooo blessed to have such a good momy like you as a friend. i am impressed with your ability to do all that you do and have the best kids around.
the day was perfect! there was a calm excitement in the air as Leslyn sat down for her makeup and hair. She honestly never stopped beaming about marrying brandon. In fact, Leslyn carries a sort of happiness that she just wants everyone around her to have as well.
the most beautiful thing about the way brandon and leslyn love each other is this: they are both willing to give each other that which the other might break.
we spent the entire car ride down to and from Palo Duro Canyon talking about how they met and fell in love and what the other means to them. A few days later, Leslyn sent me another message beaming about her husband and her marriage and what he brings out in her and how he had made her feel complete.
i am so honored to have been one of the few witnesses to the moment they exchanged their vows… but i realize now that the greatest blessing is being able to know them even more so as friends. Now, i realize how happy their family and friends are for them. How much they encourage and support them. And just how very special this first evening of their marriage really is.
Brandon and Leslyn kept their wedding day very intimate. The four of us quietly made our way through the Canyon hiking trails where the ceremony would be.when we were discussing a possible location for their wedding ceremony, i was quite surprised that they let me pick the spot. Many times i’ve hiked this trail and love to come sit at this edge and just think. it’s so quiet and peaceful. i always thought that would be the perfect place for a wedding ceremony… and here we werebrandon and leslyn – i’m speechless. cannot think of one single way to thank you for allowing me insight to what makes your relationship and love for each other so so special. thank you. thank you. that’s really all i can say.
“Knowing Callie all this time, i thought she could never find anyone that is as great as she is. And then… I met Drew. And now, honestly – i don’t know which one of you is the luckier one”
this bridesmaid speech sums up this wedding day and this couple perfectly. I have really enjoyed getting to know Drew and Callie this last year. they are so good to one another. they are invested. they care and nurture their union. I knew from the very beginning that these two would have a beautiful wedding day truly surrounded with love and encouragement. People often stopped what they were doing to talk about how happy they were. Or comment on how great they were together. It was a wedding day that i could photograph again and again.
this tender moment made me tear up. Callie was so excited to marry her best friend.Drew and Callie – i have cherished every moment of getting to know the two of you. i your wedding day was as lovely as your relationship is and i’m excited for all the future has in store for the two of you. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your journey.
