wichita mountain engagement photographer_01

I feel strongly about couples like Natalie and Kevin, about sessions like this one. And when I say “I feel strongly” I mean I want to wrap them up in a great big hug, squealing about how much I love them and not let go until well, ever. They had considered eloping in the mountains before eventually deciding on a wedding in Dallas this summer after all, so when it came time to brainstorm location ideas for their engagement photos, I wanted to give these two the closest thing to mountains as we could get. A three hour drive later we met up in the Wichita mountains of Oklahoma and basically just played together for hours. The scenery was gorgeous, the weather perfect, and Natalie and Kevin settled so comfortably into just being themselves  — there was no second guessing, they just went wholeheartedly for everything I threw at them. And that’s all my lil photographer heart could ever hope for — for people to feel like a true version of themselves in front of my camera.

Natalie and Kevin, thank you for being so real in front of my camera. Thank you for trusting me with that. I’m up for an uncomfortably long group hug at the wedding in May if y’all are.

Hannah is an avid laugh-out-loud-er and Jonathan is one for witty comments with an sly smirk. Hannah is warm, outgoing and over the top expressive while Jonathan is all about that deadpan delivery. Hannah is a small town girl who fully embraces her East Texas twang and Jonathan, well, he has a pretty impressive tattoo sleeve. Let’s just say they might not be the first person you’d think to set the other up with on a blind date. Well turns out they didn’t need your lame blind-date set-up because they met through choir practice at church SO TAKE THAT, MATCHMAKERS!

  People who have Hannah and Jonathan in their lives are blessed by this, better for knowing them — myself included. Here are some of my favorites from their chilly January engagement session in good ‘ole Denton, Texas.

I find so much inspiration in photographing people who aren’t afraid to feel deeply — people who very much enjoy life and and the person they most want to share it with. Hannah and Jonathan, I’m inspired by you.

Thank you for that.

Nicole and Taylor, oh me oh my.

These high school sweethearts are easy as pie.

Their love so deep, so warm, to have and to hold,

the leaves fall around them to make their world gold.

My darling Hollye — my sparkling, adventurous, beautiful friend — is marrying her French beau tomorrow.

I couldn’t be happier to celebrate these two and from the looks of the smiles all over their faces I’d venture to say they couldn’t be happier either.
