about us

My story doesn't begin with a lifelong pursuit of art.  It begins with love.  Starting with a camera and my sweet newborn daughter, I got behind the lens in 2012 to capture beautiful photos to share with family. I took to the camera and my hobby soon became a source of happiness. With my husband’s encouragement and by the grace of God, I have now photographed weddings for four years and continue to share that joy with countless couples and their families.

As a Dallas wedding photographer, I work with couples seeking genuine and joyful emotion in their images.

A marriage of skills has allowed me to capture the true essence of a marriage of two people.  In our home, we laugh until we cry and never take ourselves too seriously - and that's just how I love relating with my couples!  You see, while we like to imagine a wedding day as a moment in time for just the bride and groom, the truth is that I am their third wheel, capturing the love and preserving the memories of their special day.  For me, the moment I deliver the finished product to the newlyweds is truly joyful. To witness them view their relationship represented in their photos and their timeless connection captured is love manifested!

Passionate about marriage and family, wedding photography is one of my greatest callings outside of my home. Home is where my husband and children live, where faith is my foundation, and just so happens to be the great state of Texas.  I work to provide photos that pass the test of time and grace your own home for years to come!

    y style is romantic and timeless and my approach is personal and professional.

I always cry during anniversary dances.

My family and I are Disney addicts.

As a matter of fact, photographing a wedding at the Magic Kingdom is at the top of my bucket list.

I once got actual, live ants in my pants during an engagement session.

I love keeping fit through
