i love telling the story of a couple with their ring shots.  it’s one of my favorite parts of the day.  sometimes i find elements from their wedding day, sometimes i have a plan going into the day from their back story.  other times i’m totally not sure what to do but by the end of the night the perfect location has appeared.  here is a little background on the ring photos you are voting on.

jessica likes fancy things.  nothing says fancy like jimmy choo.  (this one was too easy.)


christa and jeff read their vows from their phones and actually updated their facebook status BEFORE kissing as man and wife.

chesley and andy kinda have this thing for collecting pennies.now they can collect them forever.  together.  as man and wife.

i love how denise and josh worked so many elements of their journey into their wedding day.  it had to be a part of their ring shot. (plus aggies are always wanting more photos of their “real” rings.)

audrey actually won an old camp truck in a contest for cody.  this was part of the engine.

the girls at lindsey’s wedding got ready at a house with a fancy toilet.  it sprayed water.  the girls found it funny.  so did i.

kay and wayman had this guy named joe nichols come and sing at their reception.  he is kinda a country star.  we were all impresed.

ashley and chadd had these matchbooks at their reception.  (i didn’t ask permission to light the rings on fire.)

this is a page from karen’s diary.  where she wrote about the man she was going to marry.  28 years before she married him.  (this may be my favorite one ever.)

lisa and rory met at a hospital where both of them work.  they listened to their hearts and now they are married.  :)

you know a place is super fancy when you don’t know how to pronounce the name.  chateau cocomar is that kinda place.  i’ve shot in many many venues.  some of them cool, some of them less than cool.  this place made my jaw drop.  it’s like time traveling to a mansion in france.  can’t wait to shoot there again.  (hint hint ladies.)

this fireplace was unreal.


just to prove grace was a real person in texas we took a “normal” picture. :)

Ashley & Blake | Henderson, TX Engagement Photographer

it would be impossible for me to love ashley and blake more.  these two have such a realness about them.  i loved their story and can’t wait to share more of it with you.  it was a little chilly when we shot, but their love managed to keep them both warm. ;)


engagement session on the land you grew up on with your grandmother’s quilt near the hay your boyfriend proposed to you at?  check.

i love how much blake makes ashley smile and laugh.

part of their story involves how they met at atm and then blake moved to california to become a fancy schmancy animator. (you’ve seen boardwalk empire right?  he basically makes each episode all on his own.)  anyway, every so often he comes all the way in from california to hug ashley.  it looks like this.
(give it time to load.)


thanks for sharing your awesomeness with me.
