Sunil literally arrived at his ceremony riding a white horse, with all of his friends and family dancing down the road before him.

I just don’t know how much better it can get than that.

I had to break this wedding day into two blogposts because it was TOO much fun (and wayyyy too many photos) for a single post. Enjoy some of my favorites from the first half of Tamara + Sunil’s fusion wedding day at Pecan Springs Ranch.

Y’all. Just LOOK at how giddy Sunil’s mom is for their wedding. It’s one of my favorite things.

In this next portion of the ceremony the Pandit said that whoever sits down first rules the relationship — it looked like a pretty close call but you can tell from their reactions who won 🙂

Next up will be Tamara + Sunil’s second wedding ceremony + following reception — so check back soon for post II!

So, I can’t really put how wonderful Brenna and Forrest are into words. Instead I’m just going to give you a tiny snippet of the e-mail Brenna sent me the day after their engagement session to give you a general idea of what basically ALL our e-mail correspondence has been like since day one:

“If I could send you an auditorium of people all slow clapping and shouting things like “YOU ARE AWESOME,” “WAY TO BE GREAT,” “GOD BLESS AMERICA!” I TOTALLY would. Because that is how I feel about yesterday and you and the whole process of everything. “

Who WOULDN’T love receiving e-mails like that??

Brenna, I’ve loved loved loved bonding with you over tacos, Jesus and how cute Juniper is (duh). Forrest, thank you for taking such crazy-good care of/being the best fit ever for my favorite e-mail pen pal. I adore y’all and can’t wait to meet up for your wedding Friday — WOO!


Always, always, always more backyard weddings in the trees + stealing away from the buzzing reception for some sunset portraits, just you and your love and the calm that comes with being married-so-married + floral ceremony archways + tender moments with mommas and fathers + campfires and s’mores under the Texas sky.

Always more of these things.

This is Scott and his dental school buddies — when I told them I wanted to document a photo that defined their relationship they gave the groom a good pretend teeth cleaning.


Tamara + Sunil — making winter in Texas look REAL REAL GOOD since 2017.

The day of their session was not only my first time t0 visit Hamilton Pool (aka MARS), but also my first time to meet Tamara + Sunil in person because they were living in London last year. How cool is that?? Every time one of Tamara’s Instagram posts popped into my feed they were in a different country (This is us in Morocco! Oh hey, Barcelona is pretty neat. And on and on, you get the picture).  But let me just tell you, turns out they’re all the more awesome face-to-face than even the Internet made them seem.

I cannot, cannot wait for their Austin wedding next month. But I guess I’ll have to because, ya know, time travel doesn’t exist yet.
