garnett + audrey • wedding • the watson building

Garnett and Audrey were married at one of my favorite venues in downtown Lubbock- the Watson building. One of the best things about the Watson is the huge windows they have in the second floor area. Garnett + Audrey did their first look there, and it was flooded with gorgeous fall light. These two were perfectly smitten with each other on their wedding day- which was such a pleasure to capture. They are clearly a team, and have a deep respect and appreciation for each other- all excellent beginnings to a great marriage. Southern Elegance Design totally knocked it out of the park on the florals, food and decor. Thanks for letting us tag along and capture it all, guys! 

2015 Christmas Card Templates

I always love creating custom Christmas cards for my clients- there is just something so special about a tactile card you can hold in your hand. The ones we receive stay on our fridge all year long!

These are the template designs I'll be using this year- of course, wording, colors and shape of the card can all be customized to fit the images you choose from your photoshoot!




PLEASE NOTE: These designs do not feature gold foiling, but they look like it :). 

ethan + haley • engagement

I had such a wonderful morning with these two- and I can't wait for their wedding this spring! This shoot definitely had more of a "fall" feel, which was exactly what we wanted. I loved the outfits Haley put together, and though it was chilly that day, the clouds gave us all sorts of soft light. Congrats you two!

taylor • tascosa high school graduate

Ya'll, this is Taylor. She's gorgeous, smart, and has a plan for her future. Taylor is confident and comfortable with herself- unafraid to pose next to a cool old car we saw in a questionable alleyway...she's basically who I wish I would have been as a senior in high school :). I'm so glad she drove from Amarillo to let me shoot her senior portraits. Taylor, you are awesome, and congrats!

tj + stephanie • wedding • the historic baker building

I loved so many things about this wedding- how the historic, stately Baker Building transformed into this cozy, elegant space on a rainy day in October, how gorgeous those plums and purples from the bridesmaids' dresses and florals were- how incredibly thoughtful and kind and unselfish TJ and Stephanie were on their wedding day. It was such a pleasure to photograph this wedding. I had more than a few favorites- can't get over that rich combination of navy and gold! I hope you are ready! Thanks so much to the incredible vendors who made all the pretty I got to photograph.

trevor + megan • wedding • lubbock, tx

Shawn and I were so honored to shoot Trevor and Megan's wedding last month. These two are the kind of people you need to know. They are fun, easygoing, completely dependable and caring- and just straight up nice. Plus, they love Jesus and each other. Their wedding day was full of quirks and funny moments, which made it fun for everyone (including their photographers!)- and we loved getting to photograph it all. Here are some of my favorite images!

And here's this one, just because we love you guys...

kirby + shiane • engagement • south plains fair

When Shiane told me she'd considered shooting their engagement session at the South Plains Fair, I was ALL. IN. YESSS! The colors- food-excitement- perfect for an engagement session. And so perfect for this fun couple. These two smiled the entire time, and I loved photographing it. Thank you guys for an amazing time!

evan + winmarie • wedding • the legacy, lubbock, tx

I felt so honored to get to photograph Evan and Winmarie's wedding day. When I met with them last year, I could tell that hiring me had been something they really thought over and did with intention- which totally makes me want to work my tail off! It was so much fun to get to see them start their marriage. The Legacy was a perfect venue, as always, and many traveled from far away to see them say their vows. Thanks so much for having us, you guys! Congrats!

chris + bethany • lubbock, tx

Chris and Bethany are some of our dear friends with whom we've had the privilege lege of going through many stages of life together. I grew up across the street from Bethany, lived in neighboring apartment complexes just after Shawn and I got married, and then she married Chris, who played in a band with Shawn. I am so thankful that we still get to do life with them. These two are truly servant-hearted and just plain cool.

I hadn't photographed them in SEVEN years (wow!)- since their wedding- so it was time for some updated photos that included Max, their bulldog, and Chris's trucks- another large part of their lives. I love shooting with these two because they are no-fuss and always up for adventures. BB- you only get prettier. Love you guys!
