Jamie & Chris’s engagement previews

I photographed my sweet couple Jamie & Chris with their THREE fur babies in downtown Rockwall  I will be photographing their wedding this December at THE SPRINGS Event Venues

It was windy and cloudy but that did not stop us from getting great shots. Calling their names and doing my special dog whistle just wasn’t working after a while so at one point I simply said “treat” and all three dogs simultaneously looked right at me, ears perked up and smiled. Seriously can’t get any better than that! (Don’t worry, they got their treats) 🙂

Kara & Hamid’s wedding previews

From the bride ~

Our first date (suppose to be just dinner) turned into 5 hours of us talking and laughing . We had instant chemistry. Over the following weeks, my heart told me I had found the man I wanted to marry. I knew within two weeks I was in love. I confided in my MOH Becca’s MOH that I felt it strongly. She too knew within weeks when she met the one, and although I never ever believed in that – deep down I knew. Hamid slipped up and told me he loved me on our 6th date. My shocked expression said it all, “too soon!?” He asked,”too soon” I responded. On that drive home I realized in fact, it didn’t feel too soon. It felt right. Over the coming months between his final year of his PhD and immense struggles within my family, we grew stronger. The adversity made us realize we were great life partners. We got engaged just after Christmas. Setting our date for almost 2 years out. Upon my moms cancer diagnosis, we moved the wedding to the time window doctors advised. We have received so much generosity, love and support. We thank you for being on this this journey with us!

Kara’s mother was diagnosed May 1st, 2018 with a brain tumor and as of May 7th, diagnosed with Stage IV Glioblastoma (or GMB), with the tumor in her left temporal lobe (the area of the brain affecting speech and cognition). A majority of the vendors listed below were brought in by Brandi McComb Photography and every vendor either donated their services free or offered very generous discounts for the family.

Emily & Tristan’s engagement previews!

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!

Marissa & Jared’s preview blog – Engagement session in Deep Ellum

Marissa & Jared very recently got engaged and are starting the wedding planning as we speak.

Originally she wanted outdoors and nature but after I provided her with a list of my favorite locations they decided on Deep Ellum. There are many murals in Deep Ellum I absolutely love, some have just gone up in recent months so I was excited to see what was new.

Here are my favorites from today’s session 🙂

Wedding previews – Rebecca & Joseph

Rebecca & Joseph were married this morning at Bob Woodruff Park in Plano, TX under the most amazing large trees and surrounded by family and close friends. It was short and sweet, such a perfect day!

Note from the bride:

Joseph and I are childhood best friends. We’ve know each other 20+ years now but didn’t start dating until about 4 years ago. This is his first wedding and will be my 2nd/last. It truly is awesome that somehow we fell in love with our best friends. We are a goofy and our family is a little quirky but we are super easy going and like to have fun so this should be an easy shoot.
