Lauren & Nathan’s wedding previews

From the groom ~

Lauren and I met while we were both attending law school at LSU in¬†Baton Rouge. From the moment I first saw her in those leopard¬†leggings during my Employment Discrimination exam (somehow it¬†ended up being my lowest grade that semester), I knew she was the¬†one. After deploying some super smooth tactics, including pretending¬†like I didn‚Äôt know who she was, I somehow convinced her to study with¬†me at the library. Eventually, after buying her countless smoothies¬†during our study breaks, she finally agreed to go on a date with me!¬†We decided that we would go to the movies for our first date and I¬†even let her choose the movie thinking she would choose some boring¬†chick flick, but to my surprise, she chose Mad Max Fury Road. Once we¬†got to the movies, I offered to buy some snacks expecting that she¬†would choose popcorn and candy, but again to my surprise, she chose¬†a pickle…yes, a pickle. It was at that moment that I knew two things: 1) this was not your typical girl; and 2) I had to make her mine. There¬†was really just one more test for Lauren to pass at this point ‚Äď meeting¬†my now 10 year old golden retriever, Marley. Lauren and Marley¬†became best friends immediately upon meeting each other. In fact, the¬†first time Lauren met Marley, they rolled around on the ground¬†together for at least 15 minutes.¬†After I graduated and moved to Shreveport to start my job at Bradley¬†Murchison Kelly & Shea, our future seemed a little uncertain as Lauren¬†was set to take the Texas bar exam in May of 2016 and planned to move back home to Dallas, where she all but had a job lined up at a prominent oil and gas firm. To my surprise, Lauren told me she was fully committed to me and was going to take the Louisiana bar exam and search for job opportunities in Shreveport. When Lauren told me this, it was one of the happiest days of my life. Shortly thereafter, Lauren accepted a job with the twenty-sixth judicial district court for Bossier and Webster Parishes, where upon graduating and passing the bar she clerked for the Honorable Parker Self and the Honorable Michael Nerren. In December of 2016, Lauren met her new best friend in this world ‚Äď a tiny miniature longhair cream Dachshund named Nash, who is as ornery as he is cute (Lauren would kill me if I somehow didn‚Äôt mention Nash during this whole thing). During the summer of her clerkship, Lauren took and passed the Texas bar exam. After Lauren‚Äôs clerkship, she accepted a position as an associate attorney with Langley, Parks, Horton & Maxwell in Shreveport. We closed on our new home in Shreveport on August 4, 2017. On that same day, Lauren made me the happiest man in the world by agreeing to marry me after I got down on one knee in our empty new home filled with candles and rose petals. We then shared a picnic of her favorite food (spaghetti) and celebrated with champagne and chardonnay (her favorite white wine). We have been celebrating ever since and are excited beyond words to become husband and wife. We cannot wait to celebrate with our closest friends and family on October 13, 2018 in Dallas, Texas.

Emily & Tristan are getting married next year at THE SPRINGS Event Venues with some of my favorite top vendors in the industry! I cannot wait for this wedding 

Today I shot their engagements at the beautiful Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden and although it was cloudy and muggy, they were rock stars!

Jessie and James lakeside engagements

This most adorable couple has been together 7 years, now they are engaged to be married in September at Avalon Legacy Ranch in McKinney, TX.

We originally planned on shooting at Arbor Hills but due to my recent chigger attack out there I begged them to change locations, she was more than fine with that! Her friend suggested White Rock Lake so we headed out to this secluded part of the lake and well, the photos speak for themselves. I will definitely be shooting there again!

Any engaged couples looking for a great location for photos? Let’s chat about how fun this area can be!

Haley & Travis Fruit – wedding previews

Travis & Haley were so much fun to work with! They are both very outgoing and just wanted to document the day as it was, natural, fun and in the moment. The venue they chose was such a sweet little place perfect for a smaller scale wedding or event. The floral and bouquets were absolutely breathtaking and the cake was to die for!

From the bride:

We met on Tinder. Our first date was a movie and dinner on August 28, 2016. Travis proposed to me on January 5, 2018. He surprised me at school with a video including my second grade students in the video.

Engagement session at the Dallas Arboretum – Courtnie & Jonathan

I will be photographing¬†Courtnie & Jonathan’s wedding in July at the¬†Las Colinas Country Club. This morning we met at the Dallas Arboretum. I¬†actually prefer to shoot in overcast rather than sunlight so I was thrilled when I looked outside this morning as I was preparing to leave.

If you have not been to the Arboretum during their Dallas Blooms, you must go, gorgeous tulips and flowers all over the garden! You still have until April 8, 2018 to do so 

Here are some of the best shots from the session!
