The Wedding~Kelsey & Steve


Ok, so THIS is the reason I went to Utah two weeks ago. My dear friend/”little sister” got married!  About 7 years ago, I was her youth leader at church, and we became really close and have stayed in regular contact.  I have included lots and lots of pictures in this post, for the sake of her and her family, so feel free to skim over if you’d like;) I’ll start with our little girls… Continue Reading

Julie & Dylan~Married!

My hubby’s youngest sister got married which spurred a cross country road trip for our little family. It is always wonderful to share in the joy as people I love begin a marriage.  I got to sit this one out as the photographer and just take pictures for fun! Imagine that?! Julie has gotten into photography recently and I think she did well to have a non family member be in charge of capturing her… Continue Reading

Spring Break Extravaganza

We just got back from a 10 day drive from Austin to Salt Lake City, Utah. My 4 kids did AWESOME and it was actually quite fun! Don’t ask me to do it again for at least a year though. We saw lots of scenery and of course I took tons and tons of pictures. I will just post a few of the bridals I took for my sister in law (hubby’s little sis) for… Continue Reading

I wanna Dance~I heart faces

I’ve got lots of crazy dancing images from wedding receptions, but I just love the romance and the beauty in this shot taken at an engagement session. It is the same couple as I posted below, but since I didn’t actually submit that image last week, I figured it would work out to submit it this week. They really love to dance together, so I took a few of them in their element dancing as… Continue Reading

Justin & Kily

My friend Kiliana went with her husband and sweet little boy, Joshua, to be sealed in the San Antonio LDS temple. I knew her when she was a newlywed and fresh from Brasil. She didn’t have a photographer when they first got married, so she wanted me to document this special day for her. I felt honored to have been asked to document this memorable time in their lives. Their little guy had a long… Continue Reading

Joanna & Jaren~California Wedding

I flew out to Northern California last week for the wedding of my husband’s sister. She and I got really close in college, but now seem to catch up just at the family gatherings. She is a no frills kinda gal (a Harley lover) so it was so much fun to see her all fancied up! She was the most beautiful bride, it was an honor to capture her and her husband on their weddidng… Continue Reading

Odessa and Sergio

From San Diego to San Antonio in the span of 1 week I shot 2 friends weddings in 2 different states. Even though I technically DON’T DO WEDDINGS! Ironic, isn’t it?I had one solid hour all alone with this couple and that was SO glorious! Every photographers dream. We got so many fun shots, and this is the very narrowed down version of some that I loved. I love this one….moody and serious with the… Continue Reading

The Wedding

I got to fly to Washington for Diane & Taylor’s wedding and had a lot of fun! Here are a few wedding/reception shots. The day was a bit chilly for my Texas blood and VERY VERY windy! After about 10 minutes of taking pictures on the Columbia River Temple grounds, it started to snow with full sun. We ducked for cover and took a few more picts when it stopped, then headed out to the… Continue Reading

A few Bridals

Diane said I could post a few Bridals, because her fiance probably wouldn’t check and if he did, he’s been very anxious to see them. She wanted to hide her dress until the big day from him, but he couldn’t stand not to see some shots of his soon to be wife…so I’ll share a few that don’t show the entire dress. I’ll post the rest either when she says her fiance has seen them… Continue Reading
