From the bride…
We met on a plane…I was his flight attendant. He was headed to Texas to see some friends. Little did he know that this would be the trip of his lifetime! He tried to get my attention a few times, and I made casual conversation, but was more focused on working. Finally when I had a break, I went to the back of the plane to sit down. He asked me to sit down and watch Duck Dynasty with him. So, I did, and that was it! 20 minutes later we were both smitten, and 2 weeks later he took me out on our first date. We just clicked and knew right off the bat this was “it”. Eight months later he proposed and six months after that we got married! What a wonderful whirlwind the past year & a half has been. Our wedding was near Athens, Georgia in a cute barn. Antique Acres was the name of the venue. When planning our wedding we knew we needed to incorporate my favorite colors, our cowboy boots, and Seth’s beloved coca-cola! We added personal touches such as having cookie cakes because I have always preferred cookies to cake. Everything went together better than we could imagine and it turned out perfectly!

Jennifer Vera of Action Rentals was asked to design a styled shoot for the Baylor Club at Baylor University's McLane Stadium, and we were all excited and honored to be the first official non-sporting event to be photographed on the field. The ballroom at the Baylor Club is a true thing of beauty for any couple who are Baylor Fans! The color palette is an elegant version of the University's green and gold. Jennifer picked two gowns from Georgio's Bridal, and the vendor line up is truly a Who's Who in Central Texas!

For this bridal session, our aim is high fashion, with a destination feel. The location is a unique rocky landscape at a beach, located within Whytecliff Park, in West Vancouver, BC, and is perfect for our concept.
We used soft bridal colors, like pastel pink and white, with darker colors like purple and black, to produce a more dramatic and fashion theme. The pastry, invitation, and floral designers worked together to make our concept come to life.
The wedding gowns were provided by Clara Couture Bridal. One model was wearing a stunning designer mermaid gown, with an asymmetrical sweetheart neckline, and ruffled skirt; the other gown is from the new 2015 Pronovias collection, which showcases a beautiful low-cut semi-sheer back, with mother of pearl gemstone embroidery. The soft pink and the black sequins evening gowns were used create a contrast between the soft destination look, and the modern glamour style.

I was contacted by this couples daughter, Theresa. She knew her parents 52nd wedding anniversary was coming up. What better gift to give them… a photo session. This couple was so adorable. They love the outdoors and still remain extremely active. They braved the mangrove swamps, rocky shoreline and boardwalks with me.

Sydney and Hunter are so perfect together! They’re both beautiful people inside and out! The weathermen were calling for rain on their big day and it held out for their first look and some gorgeous portraits of the two of them…the storm clouds that were rolling in made for a beautiful backdrop. Unfortunately, those clouds opened up 15 minutes before the ceremony was set to begin! Sydney remained calm during the whole thing and decided to move her ceremony from outdoors to inside the barn, where the reception was already set up. The barn made for a perfect setting for their ceremony since all of the girls had on their cowboy boots! Sydney’s mother outdid herself with putting everything together! So much detail and love went into every little thing! I was so happy to be a part of this day with people who, like me, just go with the flow!

Ryan and Nathalie met while Ryan was working in Florida as a missionary for the Mormon Church. They fell in love and really the rest is history. They are both completing school this year in Utah and plan to wed this December at the Orlando, Florida Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The couple had flown into town for Ryan to meet Nathalie’s family before their wedding in December and to have their engagement photos taken. Nathalie had her heart set on a vintage style shoot with lots of glowy sunset photos…but of course the afternoon was nothing but overcast and rainy. Right as the session was wrapping up the sun came out and afforded us the chance for a few incredible images to go along with Nathalie’s goal of glowy romantic photos!
