liesl + caleb: intimate starlit wedding || mansfield, tx

Liesl + Caleb.

It was only their closest friends and family. Homemade desserts. Bridesmaids all in white. Ceremony under the stars. 

Everything this couple did was purposeful and meaningful for them. I've literally never taken so many detail shots, and I just kept on snappin' because every little item was darn sweet and thoughtful and each thing had a story behind it. This was a day of pure romance. And it was beautiful. 

Side story: this was the third wedding of mine in a triple header wedding weekend. I had acute bronchitis, and I woke up thinking there was absolutely no way I could get through this day, much less do well. BUT YOU GUYS. There's a magic to working a job you love this much, because I cruised on through. Thanks to some steroid shots + so so many thanks to my always reliable hubs/second shooter and the kind, incredibly helpful and talented Elizabeth Bristol for their support and the comfort they gave me in knowing that if I passed out mid-ceremony, the whole shebang would be left in able, talented hands. >> PTL, my legs and consciousness did not give out on me hehe.

anyways: scroll + enjoy this romantic day.

Megan plus Austin.

This was one for the books. Unplugged ceremony. Hanging florals. Perfectly matching mismatched everyyyything. Emotional first look. Choreographed groomsmen dance. Vows that make even your photog cry. AND DAT DRESS THOUGH.

Could not get enough of this day--it hit me right in the feels, and inspired me in all the right, meaningful ways.

I remember when I was told during a mentor session that the main, best thing to look for in clients is couples completely, crazy in love. I thought, yeah...that's definitely ideal, but how do you really know? How can you really tell if they're really super in love? 

YOU CAN SO TELL.

Megan and Austin have it. They ooze it. And I can't help but love 'em for it.

AND they gave me tonssssss of time for their portraits! Ideal client alert times ten! It's so worth it you guys...give me time to let you get all comfy and cozy and romantic, and we will make some magicccc.

rachel + tyler: white rock lake || dallas, tx

I shot this sweet little married sesh literally hours before I was heading off on my trip to Portland with my BFF. The travel-hype was in full gear, I was giddy, and my little inner creative was in her happy place. 

This didn't even feel like work a little tiny bit. Not only was I in the flow, but I've known these two since high school, so it was just traipsing through the park, chatting, laughing, and me squealing intermittently over that pretty pretty oh-so pretty summer golden hour.

P.S. They're even more in love now than they were then, and it's so perfectly presh, I could die.
