Wedding

Las Colinas Country Club Wedding | Dallas Wedding Photographer | Kathy & Ruben

Kathy and Ruben’s wedding was perfection. They are, by far, the most laid back couple that I’ve had the pleasure of photographing and the main goal for their special day: for everyone to have fun - and I think they accomplished just that! Kathy is sweet and lighthearted, yet grounded. Ruben is the life of the party, cracking jokes and making sure everyone around him is smiling.

Nicki Gazlay got the day started with gorgeous hair and makeup for the bride. The beautiful bride walked down the softly lit candelabra lined aisle at the Las Colinas Country Club which provided a perfect intimate location for these two to tie the knot. The reception hall overlooked the golf course which provided a stunning view of downtown Dallas and Jaime Chavez with Ambience Entertainment kept everyone dancing the night away! Congratulations Kathy and Ruben, I am honored to be included in your celebration!

Bridals in Venice | Workshop Review Part I

As many of you know, I had an amazing opportunity to take a workshop in Italy this past May with Scott Johnson and Paul Fowler. A year ago, my dear friend Cate sent me a text: We should go to this. My initial thought: No. I can’t possibly travel halfway across the world for a workshop. The last few educational seminars and workshops I had attended had fallen short (by a mile) of my expectations, so I was hesitant to commit to something so big and so far away. But continuing education is SO important to me - it helps me to stay motivated, creative, and to push myself to do my absolute best work.

I’ve been a photographer for a long time, coming up on 18 years, and I work HARD. So, an hour later I replied: Ok, I’m in!

I went into it not really knowing what to expect, but knew that regardless, I would be able to enjoy a great trip to Italy (I’d never been to Europe!), the opportunity to photograph on some gorgeous backdrops, and a nice getaway with my husband and photog bestie. This workshop, however, far exceeded my expectations. I walked away with so many new ideas and inspired to continually push myself to the next level.

We have been so busy this summer, between vacation and trying to work with a kiddo at home, that I’ve hardly even had time to really hash through all of the images I took, so I thought I’d break down into different parts to share bits of our trip and experience! I’ll start with the first part our session in Venice. We began at sunrise at Piazza San Marco and it was nothing short of magical. If you’ve ever been to Venice, you know that cruise ships begin dropping off thousands of visitors quite early in the day. We started at 6am and there was hardly anyone else out and about, to see the square empty and so quiet was quite surreal!

Uyen & Gordon 25th Anniversary Celebration! | Dallas Wedding Photographer | Flower Mound Photographer

A couple of years ago, Uyen's sister in law reached out to me to schedule portraits for Uyen and Gordon.  Uyen had been sick and wasn't sure that she was going to make it to see her 25th wedding anniversary, so she was throwing a surprise anniversary party for her husband Gordon.  Fast forward two years later, and Uyen reached out and told me that she did in fact fight through her illness and they wanted to throw a huge celebration, to not only celebrate their 25 years together, but to celebrate marriage in general and enjoy an evening with friends and family from all around the world.  Uyen and Gordon are two of the kindest, most hospitable and generous couples I've had the pleasure of meeting and I am so happy that I was given the opportunity to participate in their event and create some beautiful portraits for them!
