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.
I love the Smiths. And I freakin love how these photos turned out of them in their home right after welcoming baby Canon into the world. My aim in every single session is for the photos to fit the people inside them — that’s more important to me than a pretty photo or even a well-composed shot, the honesty is what I’m going for.
Ah, February — the month of love and chocolate hearts, but for this wedding photographer, the month of catching up on all the back-blogging I never got around the posting last year in the flurry of keeping up with shoots, edits, e-mails and ya know, growing and giving birth to a tiny human. Part of me wanted to start fresh with only blogging work from 2016 but I’m a deeply nostalgic soul (see any instagrams of my daughter . . . um, basically my entire feed, for reference) and some things I just can’t allow to get lost in my hard-drives, not properly memorialized on my blog for me to come back to over and over again and remember how incredibly blessed I felt to witness and document such momentous days in brides and grooms’ — in sons and daughters and mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters and lifelong best friends’ — lives.
Marissa and Matt perhaps had more fun on their wedding day than just about anyone I’ve seen. I love watching people feel deeply, and that is what these two did on that Saturday in May. Enjoy looking through some of my favorites.
All my love to the Driscolls!
Many thanks to my second shooter and little bro, Jacob, for helping me document this day.
