You bring the love, I'll bring the camera

I’ve been married to my college sweetheart since 2011. Brandon is the most lovable guy I’ve ever met. He does his share of housework, opens doors, pulls out chairs and shares his fries with me! What more can a girl ask for? Brandon's love for me continues to amaze me as we grow closer together over the years. I feel so blessed to know and share everything I own with this man. He's always supporting my goals and reminding me that things aren't as bad as my nerves have persuaded me to believe. It's because of the happiness I share with him on the daily basis that I decided to document the love stories of other people. After many prayers and encouraging conversations with my husband, I established my LLC. March 31st, 2016 was my last day working in a corporate cubicle. I’ve been free to collaborate with awesome couples locally and abroad ever since.

Good times, our journey together and gratitude.

These are the values where everything in my life and business stems from. It's so important that we set aside our busy schedules to make room for good times. Date nights, road trips, local events and cozy nights at home can give you the energy you need to face the world every day. That's why Brandon and I have promised each other that we'll never be too busy to stop everything for the sake of a hug, conversation or spontaneous adventure. Sometimes we even create videos while we're out having fun together. This way, we get to relive these fun times together over and over again. Seeing moments like these remind us that we have an amazing life and no matter what random issues pop up, we have something wonderful to be grateful for. That's what I want my photographs to do for you and the one you love.

My hope is that you find a deeper love for each other every time you look at your photographs from your lovers lifestyle session, intimate wedding or elopement. I will do everything in my power to create images that reflect the radiance of the day. Getting to know you is my first priority. The better I understand who you are as a couple, the better I’ll be at taking photos that resonate with your hearts desires. The first time I shot a lovers lifestyle session was when Andrea, one of my sweet brides, asked me if I could take photos of her and Chris while they explored a carnival that had pulled into town. On the day of the session, I drove an hour from my little apartment in North Texas to meet them in Fort Worth. It was worth the drive! I loved following them around with my camera as they played carnival games, slide down the huge whimsical slide and shared kisses on the Ferris Wheel. After that, I knew I'd found my spark.

I want to photograph real moments of people in love across the nation and beyond. If you have an out of the box, adventurous or romantic idea for a photography session with the love of your life, send me a message.  Let's get away from the typical city park or botanical garden shoot and capture real moments in places that have meaning to you.
