These two are so effortlessly awesome and the absolute nicest people to be around and I have been actively looking forward to their three-day August wedding ALL YEAR LONG.
Funny story, I actually first sat down to meet with Misbah and Ali about shooting their wedding two days before my daughter was born (WORTH IT, THOUGH). I can still remember Ali’s aghast face when I told him I was only a few days out from my due date and he genuinely was like, “WE COULD HAVE WAITED TO MEET!!” He was so immediately concerned about me, because he’s just that kind. And Misbah I’ve adored since I photographed her sister’s wedding almost three years back because this girl is PURE SUNSHINE CONCENTRATE.
Nine years of that same kindness and that same sunshine have already been poured into their relationship so it’s no wonder these two had so much to smile about at their Deep Ellum engagement session back in March.
I love documenting people who feel deeply. It will never ever ever ever get old to me.
Nicole + Taylor held each other close ALL DAY LONG at their Dallas Arboretum wedding in March and as far as I could tell never intend to stop. You two do a dang good job of it too.
Many thanks to Nicole and Taylor for entrusting their wedding documentation to me.
Thank you also to the talented Jacob Daniels (otherwise known as my little bro) for second shooting with me this day and doing a dang good job.
All I really want from my couples at their engagement session is for them to genuinely enjoy spending that time together. It’s important to me that this session not be a show or a series of poses but for it to be
you + your most favorite person
with space for y’all to remember how much you very much would like to spend the entire rest of your lives side by side.
I had a bride text me after her engagement shoot last week that the time we were shooting felt like a stress reliever in the midst of wedding planning and I was like, “YES. THAT’S WHAT I WANT FOR YOU.”
Emma and Collin, y’all are so good at enjoying each other. Way to go, you guys. WAY TO GO.

You guys, I’m obsessed with Rachel and Dan’s engagement session. We met up one Sunday in April and went all over South Congress before heading over to their go-to dive bar and ended up splashing around in Bull Creek. Something I love about these two is that they DON’T STOP MOVING. Like, ever. As someone who will always choose photographing motion and real interactions over a pose here and a pose there let’s just say having these two in front of my camera had me like a kid in a candy store — we didn’t stop shooting until the sun was down.
It just seems like you should have a good time when you’re with the person you’re going to marry and let me tell you Rachel and Dan are nonstop smiles together — kind of like me when I look at these photos from their Austin engagement session. Enjoy!
