Jimmy & Cristina Lee’s wedding previews

From the groom –

We met online through Coffee Meets Bagel. Our first date was a breakfast ate, we had coffee no bagels. I proposed using the game speak out and our boys held up a sign asking her to join our family. When she saw the sign she cried and said yes! Now we are here.

39th birthday celebration at Ferris Wheelers Backyard BBQ

Last night I shot a 39th surprise birthday for Jonathan Rosen at Ferris Wheelers Backyard & BBQ

It was a party of around 30+ friends and family put on by his girlfriend Jordan, my favorite monkey you ever did see was there to surprise him! Miki the Monkey LOVES his dum dum suckers and helping blow out birthday candles!! The birthday boy was surrounded by friends and family who had such an amazing time! Some of the guests got on the big ferris wheel which always makes for great photos!

I have said it before, this is the BEST BBQ I have ever tasted! If you have not yet been you must try this place out! Great atmosphere, they have plenty of room for parties, events, they even have bands (big stage out back) and let’s not forget the ferris wheel.

Owner Doug Pickering was there greeting guests as usual, hung out with Miki the Monkey and served up the best BBQ in Texas!! Ferris Wheelers Backyard BBQ is located at 1950 Market Center Blvd. On the menu, you can expect “Texas staples such as brisket, ribs, house-made sausage, honey-brined smoked turkey breast and Carolina-style pork shoulder,” according to a press release. “The Southern-influenced sides include smoked BBQ beans, smoked green beans, BBQ mac & cheese, jalapeño bacon cole slaw and Southwestern potato salad.”

Lindsey & Andrew’s wedding previews

Lindsey & Andrew were married on 9/2/18 at Rustic Grace Estate.

Happily Ever After –

They met in 2014 after love at first text when Lindsey agreed to join Drew for a Mexican dinner at La Vista.. Despite Lindsey’s best efforts of poisoning Drew with guacamole on their first date due to a severe allergy, they both survived the nerve-racking first date jitters. Shortly after, we began dating and living with one another. Because of our unique situation, with both of us having kids from previous relationships, our journey took off a bit faster than we could have imagined. The laughs and cries we shared together, paired with our daughters sisterly love for one another, made this unorthodox fairy tale, a dream come true. Without skipping a beat, we began living life as a four person family and selflessly devoting our love, time and effort to each other. Now, three years later, after the fine dining of nachos and margaritas, Drew took a leap of faith and got down on one knee. We have decided to vow our love to each other until death do us part, and we cannot think of any better way to do it than with our amazing family and friends.

The Connerly family studio previews

One of my favorite studios is the Lumen Room, so when the Connerly family booked me for a family session but did not want to be out in this awful Summer heat, I knew the perfect place!

This sweet couple has been married two years and share a daughter together but each have children from previous marriages. They make a beautiful combined family and the older kids have become the best of friends 🙂 The session was super quick but so much fun as you can see in the photos below.

Caitlin & Donnie at The Springs!

From the bride:

We met through my partner teacher who knew Donnie from grade school. It took me a month before I let her give him my number, and she gave it to Darla instead! So she forwarded my number to him. He texted me and we immediately hit it off, we made plans for that weekend to go to an FC Dallas game. Everything after just fell into place.

Donnie, Kiersten, and my mom planned an impromptu family house warming for my new apartment. Donnie proceeded to carry a cart of goodies up my 3 flights of stairs in the heat of July. He was a nervous wreck. Donnie asked me to open up mail he “received” that was a baseball card. He said he got a surprise card and he wanted me to open it for luck that it would be a good card. When I opened it it was a baseball card that had a picture of us on it and it said “Will you marry me?” Next thing I know he is on his knee and he asked and of course I could only say YES!!

Ashley & Alan’s wedding previews in Glen Rose, TX

From the bride:

Alan & I met through my sister Krista, who was a coworker and friend of his. When I was looking to move to the Austin area Krista said to reach out to Alan because he had been looking for a roommate. I had met Alan before in social settings, so I reached out and moved in with him in August of 2012.  My plan was to live with him for about six months before getting my own place, but as it turns out there was much more in store for us and we are very excited to start our next chapter as husband and wife.

The wedding took place on Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 6:30 PM on the family property in Glen Rose, TX, Alan’s mom found all vendors who did a phenomenal job, as soon as I have that list I will add them.

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.
