Shelby is one of my dear friends, and when she asked if I could photograph her for some new head shots for her website and blog, I couldn't say yes fast enough. She is the photographer and inspiration behind Shelby Tsika Photography, and her passion for her sweet clients and food and product photography constantly blows me away. I met Shelby a couple of years ago now (even though it feels like a lifetime at this point), and we connected over our mutual love for photography, our high school sweetheart love stories, and our introverted nature. Funny thing about being an introvert, you're drawn to other ones and when you find the right one, I'm pretty sure you can talk endlessly with them about anything and everything. Shelby is definitely one of those people for me. Her openness, kind nature, and sweet soul make her one of my favorite people, and I'm so thankful to have met her through an amazing creative community. Here are some of my favorites from her session at The West Studios in Houston!
First off, can I just say how much I love this couple? Haley and Dennis are two of the kindest souls you will ever meet, and their love for each other and the Lord is so, so apparent in every single thing they do. To top it off, they have amazing families that will make you feel like you’re apart of theirs’ in an instant. Walking into a wedding day as somewhat of an outsider that then has to spend an entire day with people you’ve just met for the most part can be somewhat challenging at times, especially when stress levels are high, but I never felt out of place with these amazing folks. I absolutely loved photographing this fun, bright wedding day out at Moore Ranch last April. Haley and Dennis got married on April Fool’s Day and it definitely fit their fun-loving personalities. But their marriage is no joke, and their wedding day was so amazing! Here is a peek into that beautiful day last April…

Traveling to Austin for sessions and weddings is always so much fun. Brooke and Kameron's session at Laguna Gloria was no exception! Their sun-filled session captured their relationship perfectly. These two are college sweethearts and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding next month at Geronimo Oaks. Enjoy some of my favorites!
My first session back from maternity leave was Stephanie's gorgeous session at Traditions Golf Club in Bryan, and I couldn't imagine a more perfect to start back with! This girl is the sweetest soul, and I had so much fun with her and her momma during the session. Her wedding was also my first wedding back, and I cannot wait to share her and Jordan's beautiful day!
