It's been so cold here in Texas lately. Seriously, I'm fairly convinced it's one of the coldest winters I've lived through! Since I've been longing for sunnier, and perhaps a bit warmer, days over here, I thought I'd finally share some of my favs from Kelsie's session from last January! It was a perfect evening for bridals and the Vineyard at Florence made for the most beautiful backdrop. Kelsie was absolutely glowing! I just loved everything about what she chose to wear on her wedding day, and her pup.. so precious! Kelsie and her hubby are coming up on their first wedding anniversary, so congratulations you guys!

My best friend, Courtney, is getting married this weekend! I can't believe how fast her and Dillon's engagement has flown, but I am so, so excited that they found each other all those years ago and are committing their lives to one another. In March, we planned out their engagement session at a couple of really great locations outside of Waco. As a photographer living in Texas, when you come along and find locations that look like the one below, you get rather excited and proceed to pray for really awesome sunshine, which is what we got. I had so much fun with Dillon and Courtney that evening. They're just the cutest and sweetest together, and I'm proud of Dillon for fully embracing all the odd things I make people do during engagement sessions, hehe. I'm so excited for this Saturday and all the joy and excitement it will hold! Until then, enjoy some of my favorite photos from their engagement session.
Summer bridals are generally full of lots of sunshine, smiles, and the inevitable Texas heat. Melanie's bridal session at the Carleen Bright Arboretum was just that, but so much more because she got to share the special moment of transforming into a bride by putting on her dress with her full hair, makeup, and bridal bouquet with her mom and two sisters. I don't often get to shoot weddings or session for people I know personally, so when the opportunity arises, I am oh so thankful for the sweet memories I get to share with people that are dear to my heart, too! This past weekend, Melanie married her love, Barrett and it was an awesome ceremony showcasing God's love for us and the ways He brings the perfect person into our lives. Can't wait to share their sweet wedding day on the blog!
**Shout out to a former bride of mine and Melanie's sis-in-law, Sara for being awesome and holding branches out of the way so we could get in the perfect position with just the right amount of gorgeous light. And to Megan, Pam, and Sara for being the best cheerleaders and making Melanie feel like a princess. You can't even tell it was 100 degrees!
Tomorrow is Melanie and Barrett's wedding day, and I am so excited to head to Waco and celebrate them and their two families coming together as one! For their engagement session, mother nature decided it was going to be the rainiest weekend of all time, so we had to find an alternative plan for where to take their photos. I think we ended up with some pretty awesome locations! These two are so sweet together, and you can just see the love they have for one another instantly. It was so awesome to have the kiddos come along for part of the session and be a special addition to the photos. I can't wait to see what's in store Melanie and Barrett as they start their lives together tomorrow!
