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.

My first wedding of the year was Jenna and Harrison’s and I can’t think of any sweeter way to kick off my 2016 weddings than with these two. The excitement for this marriage could be felt in every room of that venue, seen in every family member, bridal party, guests’ face and just emanated from Jenna and Harrison. No, this was not “just another wedding” to anyone involved, this was a day worthy of much celebration, commemoration and confetti — the day Harrison became Jenna’s and Jenna became Harrison’s forever and ever amen.

One thing I always want to tell my brides is this: just be you, yo.

Be hilarious you.

Be comfortably quiet you.

Be awkward giggling you.

Be confident you.

Be your favorite you.

There is just about nothing that makes me happier than photographing a bride who embraces herself, owns it and refuses to apologize for it. Hannah does just that and it’s one of the many (many) reasons I love her.

Enjoy a few of my favorites from Hannah’s bridal session. Many thanks to Sydney for Hannah’s incredible hair and makeup + Gathered Floral Design for that beauty of a bouquet.

Basically I’m obsessed with Alia + Ronnie and everyone who comes along with them. I’ll admit that over and over and over again. They’re both so warm and genuine and make loving each other look as easy as breathing. I thoroughly enjoy and find so much inspiration in photographing Indian weddings so I was super-excited that Alia and Ronnie planned to do a mix of Indian and American wedding traditions to celebrate their marriage. The very first time I sat down with them over coffee to discuss wedding photography they told me they were going the destination route because they didn’t want a stressful wedding day like so many others they had been to (I’ll say yes and amen to every single bride and groom who ever says this to me) — so a relaxed wedding weekend out in beautiful Riviera Maya was their plan, and that weekend felt as effortless and easy as their love for each other.

Saturday: Pithi + Sangeet

Before their evening of Indian wedding festivities we took a few minutes to document this bride-groom attire because WOWZA THEY LOOKED GOOD.

Can I just take a quick second to point out how well lit their reception was? Because they had stringed lights across the entire area I didn’t have to break out my flash and could lean into documenting with available lighting which resulted in warm, natural reception photos without adding any distracting flash to the ambiance. This is my favorite favorite favorite way to shoot.
