Here’s the thing — Chelsey is one of the most wonderful people in the entire world. I wish I could enumerate all the ways she is wonderful, but it would be too many to count and also I just know I would forget some major points so you’re all just going to have to take my word for it. The girl is wonderful in all the most important ways, and in all the most surprising ways, plus she knows all my favorite movie and television quotes and she has the best vocabulary and phrasing out of all the other speakers on this planet and did I mention that she is SWEET AS ALL GET OUT? (That last sentence accidentally turned into a list. For this I apologize.) She’s a favorite for sure and has been for about seven years now. Having her in my life has been such a gift.
And one day we get a text about this boy named Colby. And then the Instagram hashtag #boyfran started showing up on her feed. And then she brought him to Denton for us to lovingly interrogate. And then we found him to be outstanding as well, (not that she needed confirmation of this fact). And then #boyfran changed to #boyfranforlife and then I drove to Canton to take their engagement photos and to shout about how happy I was for them.
Enjoy a few of my favorites of Chelsey and Colby, her #boyfran #boyfranforlife #husbandof4days.
I try not to keep it a secret that I love to travel and shoot in new spaces and places. But even more that exploring New York City, I so enjoyed spending time with Lauren and Phil — two of the coolest, most-laid back people I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. They’re even surprisingly chill when it comes to braving the masses at Grand Central and dodging bikes on the Brooklyn Bridge, so lots of gold stars for these guys.
Enjoy a few of my favorites from Lauren and Phil’s NYC engagement session.

This particular session makes me thankful for:
couples who laugh together
Sunny days that aren’t too hot
empty downtown streets
Jen Rios Weddings for trusting me with this sweet couple of hers
Beauty and the Blush for highlighting Kimberly’s naturally gorgeous hair and face like POP BAM WOW
a pretty horse named, Dakota
Kimberly has long been involved in the world of equestrian competition and so it was an absolute must to include pretty little Dakota in some of their portraits as well!
This sweet baby foal wasn’t allowed out, but LOOK HOW CUTE!!
Kimberly and Travis, y’all are some kind of stunning together. September cannot get here fast enough!
