Maryann | Astin Mansion Bridal Session


One of my favorite things about southern weddings are when you get to do a bridal session with the bride before the wedding day. Not only do I get a sneak peek of the bride, but I also love the celebration of this amazing time in a woman’s life. Not only because she’s beautiful and wearing a dress she’s dreamed about since childhood, but also the celebration of her new role as a wife. It’s an awesome thing!

We photographed Maryann’s bridals at the Astin Mansion. Maryann is also a wedding photographer, and we both love the Astin Mansion and the uniqueness that it has in our wedding market in Bryan/College Station. The old world charm and glamour beautifully mirrored Maryann’s dress and hairstyle, and I mean come on.. isn’t she just so dang gorgeous?! What a blast it was to be able to hangout and photograph a fellow creative. I can’t wait to share the images from her wedding very soon!


Amber & Jason | College Station Engagement Session

Amber and Jason got married nearly two weeks ago, but I couldn’t not share their gorgeous engagement session. We did their engagements in the heat of the Texas summer at one of my favorite spots in College Station, it was real hot y’all. But these two are not phased by anything. I had such a great time with them. I love engagements because it gives me a chance to get to know both my bride and my groom.. and it gives you guys an opportunity to get to know me a little bit and see how I work. It also makes for an easier wedding day because you kind of a have an idea of what I’m going to tell you to do!

I think the thing about Amber and Jason that I noticed right off the bat was how great of listeners they were. They truly wanted to hear what I had to say, and they took my direction with ease. I won’t share too much about their wedding day quite yet (because it is definitely coming to the blog very soon), but it was so sweet and I could just see how much they loved each other and cared for one another in the way they listened and loved on each other. Their engagement session was just the same. Eep!! I hope you guys enjoy these photos. Congrats, Amber & Jason! I’m so happy for you guys.

Ashley | The Vine at New Ulm Bridal Session


So excited to be sharing Ashley’s gorgeous bridal session at The Vine at New Ulm. When Ashley told me about where she and Ben would be getting married, I hadn’t heard of it before because it was a brand new venue about an hour and a half south of College Station, but when I looked into it more, I grew more and more excited about their wedding day there. When Ash said she wanted to do her bridals at the Vine, I was happy to have the opportunity to explore a bit and see the venue for myself. It didn’t disappoint! Nor did Ashley in her gorgeous, gorgeous wedding gown and that veil! Ashley called it a bit extra, but it was so perfectly made for her in that dress! Happy to finally be able to share these gorgeous images of such a stunning bride!


Madison | Texas A&M Bridal Session

Beautiful Madison got married this past weekend to her high school sweetheart, Ruben! While I wasn't able to photograph their wedding, I was so happy to have been apart of their journey as an engaged couple! I'm so excited to share Madison's bridal session at Texas A&M!
