Taylor & Charlie | Industrial Spring Wedding

Taylor & Charlie

Taylor & Charlie are FUN. They are always laughing; and they are avid adventurers (Charlie planned a surprise honeymoon for Taylor, to New Zealand… AND HAWAII), they ride bikes, they hike, they ski/snowboard, they are up for doing it all. At their wedding, not only did they dance and enjoy themselves but they also made time for each and every person that attended the wedding. Every one really felt like one big happy family, and they welcomed us in to that with open arms! And, ya’ll. When Charlie saw Taylor walking down the aisle, the BIGGEST smile spread across his entire face.

You may remember Taylor & Charlie’s engagements here and Taylor’s bridals here!

Chelsea & Evan | Outdoor Texas Wedding

Chelsea & Evan

Chelsea & Evan actually both live in Puerto Rico and work as Marine Scientists (which is quite possibly one of the coolest things ever), amongst just generally doing awesome and adventurous things every single day. Evan also works as a dive instructor and says he spends every single day in the water and Chelsea not only writes an incredible blog about their life (Sea Field & Tribe) but she also paddle boards, yogas, dives and is just generally fearless, something I could tell about her pretty instantly. They are both so passionate about what they do and each other and it just radiates off them.

The entire week of the wedding, there was pretty damn near 100% chance of severe thunderstorms for the entire day, so they moved the reception indoors due to mud at the private ranch where they got married. But, we were all still a little anxious about whether or not the beautiful outdoor ceremony would still be able to happen. Well, the stars aligned and it was the most beautiful, sunny afternoon… up until the minute the wedding ended where their came a HUGE lighting storm with torrential rains and tornadoes. But, hey, without all that rain – the grass wouldn’t have been so vibrantly and captivatingly green.

Fun note, the photo immediately below this one was named one of Brides.com Top 10 Wedding Instagrams the week that I posted it on our Instagram account! AH!

Liberty & Stephen | foggy San Francisco engagements

Liberty & Stephen

Okay, San Francisco. We get it. You’re foggy and windy and beautiful, you can stop showing off now.

Liberty & Stephen are both in medical school, in San Fran and Philly respectively. The day before we took their engagements, Liberty graduated from Stanford (yeah, um what? Kudos!) and got a residency in Philly a few weeks prior to and will be moving mid-June. So, our trip over to the coast was so serendipitous, because it got to be a small “goodbye” to the city that Liberty holds so dear and that has housed many fond memories of her and Stephen’s relationship blossoming. Also, we woke up to a very typical fog (#karlthefog anyone?) and it was DREAMY. Gosh dang I love the West Coast.

Leigh | Southern bridals

Leigh

Now that Leigh is MRS. BEASLEY, we can finally share her bridals – oh, happy day!! Leigh truly has a heart of gold, she is the person that walks in to a room and you just want to be her best friend. Like immediately. She has such a gift for making people feel comfortable and she is always first to ask how you are, what you’ve been up to and specific questions about your life. After she received her bridals, she emailed me that they made her tear up because it was the first time she had felt like a bride. I don’t even have the words to express how happy that makes me, how lucky I am that I got to make this GORGEOUS girl feel like a bride for the first time in this magical season of her life.

Huge shoutouts to The Beauty & The Blush on hair/makeup and The Southern Table on florals!

Bethany | Spring bridals

Bethany

Bethany & Ryan had a beautiful outdoor wedding a couple of weekends ago (where the sun actually shined) and now that she is married, we can share her beautiful rose garden bridal session! I have never seen blooms this big in my life, not to mention actually been there with a stunning bride to photograph in them so this was a dream come true!

Nora & Jon | Engagements

Nora & Jon

Nora & Jon have been together for 8 years and they are getting married this Sunday at Fair Market! We couldn’t be more thrilled to know these two. I absolutely love this engagement session, we started at their house and followed their nightly summer routine (drinks and books on the patio, making dinner together) and then headed to their neighborhood park a few blocks away and enjoyed the late spring late and each other’s company.

While We Were Away: Portland, OR

This was our third trip to Portland, and by far our favorite yet. We had four shoots while we were in town for five days and got to see some incredible locations. We hiked SO much, like at least 7-8 miles per day, and it was heaven. We saw so many beautiful flowers, hiked to a secret waterfalls, hiked in the Portland woods, visited the exceptionally beautiful Oregon coast for the second time, ate biscuits as much as we possibly could, saw live music, walked on fallen trees that acted as bridges over rushing creeks, saw so many waterfalls, and met some really wonderful kindred spirits (and met up with one of our past bride & grooms that just moved to Portland)! It was such a fulfilling and relaxing week. I always feel so creatively renewed when I’m in Oregon. I do wish we had taken more photos on our trip, but we’ll be back so soon!

You can see more of our travel photography here or here!

We will be back in Portland and Seattle this August & September for weddings, so if you’re interested in a session with us while we’re in town, shoot us an email!

Pamela & Greg | Southern Wedding

Pamela & Greg

What a most perfect Spring day this was. Pam and Greg had a perfect mix of Southern hospitality and classic elegance at their wedding, and it truly could not have been more them. They got married at the Milestone outside of Denton, had the most stunning bright florals done by The Southern Table and Pam had her hair and makeup done by our great friend Natalia Issa.

See their super fun engagements here (think Kate Spade, croquet, and the cutest Pug alive) , and Pam’s classic outdoor bridals here.

Vanessa & Jeff | Portland Engagement Session

Vanessa & Jeff

These guys are troopers. Talon and I took them on a 5 mile hike through the Portland woods, where we all talked about board games, movies and our favorites of the many restaurants our favorite city has to offer. Those trees! The mossy rocks! The ferns! It makes my heart swoon every time.

We will be back in Portland and Seattle this August & September for weddings, so if you’re interested in a session with us while we’re in town, shoot us an email!

Amy & Russell | Newlyweds in Portland

Amy & Russell

The day before we left for Portland, we posted on Instagram that we had one Saturday session spot still open (despite the high chance of rain). Somebody tagged Amy in the post and so we reached out to her via email, scheduled the shoot for Saturday and it was set! Talon and I had been hiking out at Hoyt Arboretum before we scheduled the shoot with Amy and Russell and I was saying, probably every five minutes, “WHY can’t I just have a gorgeous and in love couple to photograph right in this spot?!!?” And, seriously guys, all my Portland session dreams totally came true. I am SO grateful that we got the opportunity to meet these two, I can definitely said we made some Portland friends out of this shoot. Amy & Russell got married in January but wanted a few more photos of themselves in their wedding attire to really celebrate this part of their life! I totally recommend this kind of Newlywed shoot to all of our couples! It’s like getting to relive your wedding day, without the stress and without the to-do lists and without all of the time crunches!

ALSO, I totally made the bouquet guys!!! It was my first one ever.

We will be back in Portland and Seattle this August & September for weddings, so if you’re interested in a session with us while we’re in town, shoot us an email!

Myriam & Hunter Newlywed Session| Arizona wedding photography

Myriam & Hunter

We had this sunrise day-after session scheduled for Myriam & Hunter from the minute they booked us; when time allows for destination weddings, we love doing a session while on location. Now, admittedly, I am really not a morning person usually. I really really really want to be, and I really try to be. But, getting up at 6AM the morning after a late night wedding and only a few hours before a flight back to Dallas for another wedding (on my birthday no less) seemed overwhelming, so I was a little intimidated and worried that I wouldn’t make the shoot as good as I wanted it to be.
But, honestly, if I had a sunrise day-after session in the Arizona mountains every day, I would become a morning person really freaking fast. 

These images bring me so much joy, traveling (well, and sunlight) is really just an endless well of inspiration for Talon and I (I know I say that like every 2.2 seconds but a truer sentence has never escaped from my lips… or keyboard). Myriam decided to wear one of her bridesmaids dresses (you can see their wedding in the post below) from Two Birds Bridesmaids because she wanted more movement than what her wedding dress offered (I love working with fellow creatives!) and it was such a great decision; I love when brides are unafraid to stray from the norm! The air was crisp and chilly, but in a warm, spring-y way. The sun seemed to freeze right behind the mountains which created this perfect glow that seemed to slow time. It was magic. Plus, not only are Myriam & Hunter one of the most attractive couples ever, they were also completely up for anything including climbing boulders. All of the boulders. Well, and scheduling a sunrise session the morning after their wedding.

Immediately after this, I grabbed a venti iced caramel macchiato, we hopped on a plane (edited these images the whole way) and landed in Dallas for another beautiful spring wedding which is coming next week. Best. Birthday. Ever.
