I really cannot get enough of Hailey and Chad's gorgeous wedding at Wind Dancer Retreat in Bryan. It was my first time out there, and I was soooo in love with the beautiful light that came through the trees while we were taking their bride and groom portraits. Talk about romantic. These two are such passionate people in their own separate lives, it's no wonder their love for Christ and each other runs so strongly. I loved meeting with Hailey throughout her wedding planning process and getting to see more of her sweet heart and learning about her love for Chad. I'm just so happy they had a gorgeous spring day to celebrate that love! I didn't get to stay through the entire wedding day, but I'm so thankful to have captured some really important moments for them to look back on for a lifetime.
Dallas Wedding Photography
Last summer I had the opportunity to attend the Amanda Watson Workshop in Dallas. Over the course of three days, we photographed beautifully designed shoots in amazing locations. This was my second time at Aristide, the first being a wedding in the spring of 2016. I loved the moody, yet colorful feeling of this shoot. I shot all film, which was pretty terrifying but liberating all at the same time. These photos are a mix of Fuji 400H and Portra 400 shot on my Pentax 645n and Canon 1V.

Nate and Margot's wedding was one of those weddings that sticks in my memory really, really well. It was such a joyful day that I got a bit teary-eyed while putting this blog post together. From the first moment I met Nate and Margot at a coffee shop in Bryan, I knew three things: they had servant's hearts, they loved each other with a passion that was obvious, and their wedding was something I wanted to be a part of. They told me their love story in detail, which isn't something I always get to hear (pro tip: I love hearing about your story, so please, don't hesitate to ramble). But not only that, they wanted to get to know me, to hear my story, and it just reaffirmed the feeling I had when they first walked into the room. Nate and Margot had a quick engagement and were married on a beautiful February day at the White Sparrow Barn in Quilan, Texas. If you've never seen this place before.. well, it's something special. The detail and love that went into designing and building it is amazing, and it was the perfect place for a wonderful couple like these two to get married in. Those windows have the same effect as a beautiful chapel. They're just my favorite. So much love went into this wedding day, and I hope I was able to capture it in the way God intended me to because it was a truly wonderful day. So, I preset to you without further ado.. Nate and Margot's wedding day!
