Sooo, yesterday I asked for travel tips to Peru - keep 'em coming! But today, I just wanted to reflect on the past couple months: I'm incredibly thankful for everything the Lord has blessed me with & lucky to have a wonderful husband, @bigdanno24 who let's me book a random trip to Iceland with @notoriouszbs & @Audrr in between a girls vacation to Peru with @allisondavisweddings & @somanyamandamillers and a trip I booked for an engagement session to Nashville that Allison & I are turning into a road trip. He doesn't think I work during any trip, but I promise I do - maybe I should insta-story that more often?! 😉 Anyway, I'm super pumped for this month of travels ahead and am excited for the weddings I have after I get back and stay back for a good while. No travel for a while once October hits - I promise, Daniel. 😅⠀ 📷: @anm_photo
Gearing up for my first trip to (a new continent for me!) South America & I'm so excited & also a bit overwhelmed knowing I have SO much to do before I leave! Prayers I can accomplish everything I need to do before I leave with a little bit of time left for packing! ;) So far, today was productive & successful, I'm hoping I can push through the week the same way! PS does anyone have any tips for traveling in Peru or any tips on productivity & staying on task? I have a system, but send all the tips my way!
This super sweet couple gets married today & I can't wait to photograph their wedding at two of my favorite venues in DFW: @hpumcweddings & @arlingtonhalloaklawnpark
Is anyone else obsessed with air plants?! I found out at these things when at @magnolia a couple years ago and thought they were fake, but when I looked closer, I found that they were real! Wanna know the best part? You BARELY have to water them! I know that even when I'm gone for two weeks, I won't come home to another dead plant (like how half of my succulents over the years have died). ⠀ REAL LIFE TALK >>>⠀ I haven't posted here in 2+ weeks & it actually felt a bit refreshing coming back after a recharge! In the back of my mind, I always felt a little bad that I wasn't posting recent things. But who am I kidding, not a lot has happened in this crazy TX summer heat. Thank goodness I haven't passed out this summer - hah! That's because I left & went to Portland & CO for the month of July to shoot in cooler weather.⠀ Anyway, for a little update & why I haven't posted: I had 12 weddings back to back in 8 weeks + being a bridesmaid in my brother-in-laws wedding (making that 13 I guess). Wait, I photographed 12 weddings in 8 weeks?! Yea, a few double header weekends AND days. During that last double header day (two weddings in ONE day) I actually lost my voice entirely for a full week! @bigdanno24 was probably relieved he didn't have to listed to me, haha! 😂 All joking aside, I exerted my self a bit much in that short amount of time - one of those few times I've pushed my limits & worked myself a tad too much (probably 80+ hours/week for a few weeks (but I wasn't going to count hours!)), staying up editing through the night, just to get every wedding sent out in under two weeks before I left town. In all honesty, I absolutely loved capturing EVERY single wedding & wouldn't have had it any other way because I thoroughly enjoy getting to know all of my amazing couples & capture each of their perfect days + getting to be in @benji_hargrave & @erineiler’s wedding was the cherry on top! ❤️ Next to-do list item: there’s so much to do & I can’t do it all myself so I’m looking for someone amazing to outsource a few more things in the MSP office! Know anyone in DFW who wants some extra hours? Seriously! Tag a friend who might be a great fit or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
What better time to get away than when Texas had highs in the 110’s!? BUT, I'm LOVING this current 90 degree weather here! This Garden of the Gods engagement session went so well – Sarah & Kole are naturals and I loved getting to photograph them! This sweet couple has been together for 6 years now and are getting married next Spring at Firefly Gardens! I’m super excited about their wedding because I’ve been DYING to shoot at this venue since it opened – it’s so beautiful here & I LOVE all the natural light. They are such a fun couple & I loved getting to know them better during their engagements! Congrats you two!

Y'all! If anyone ever wants to do a session here - I'm your girl! I was in awe of the beauty in Oregon and can't wait to someday go back!! ⠀ One of my favorite sessions is on the blog - Amanda & Jarrod, thank y'all for this incredible time in Portland! I'm so happy we did your engagement session in one of the most beautiful places!⠀
This photo makes be smaile every time I see it! These two were THE sweetest and most adorable couple ever. I never stopped hearing sweet compliments from them about each other and everyone else around them on their wedding day. It's moments like these that really show a couple who they are together.
Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul. -Luther Burbank ⠀
I'll be in Colorado soon! I had a spot for a shoot open up, so if anyone is there these dates (July 22-24), let me know & we'll meet up and take some beautiful photos & have a fun adventure together!
