Caitlin + Jackson | Lake Tyler Petroleum Club | Texas Wedding Photographer

(disclaimer: Caitlin + Jackson's wedding was last June, so I am OBVI so behind with blogging. But here's to celebrating their first anni!! lol. Send help.)

Just so y'all know, I am down for a lakeside wedding ANY DAY. Caitlin + Jackson's wedding was my second time shooting at Lake Tyler Petroleum club, and I genuinely adore this venue. The space is so serene and the views of the lake are stunning. It was an overcast day, but the clouds graciously decided to hold in the rain for us. Lemme tell ya, these two know how to throw a party. Their bridal party was tons of fun and kept us laughing all day long! Caitlin put so much thought and care into the details of her wedding. The color palette was a summer dream and the centerpieces were elegant and lovely. So gorgeous!! The pier on the lake is one of my favorite locations I've ever shot at. It is the absolute perfect setting for first married photos. Toooo dreamy!

Caitlin + Jackson met at SFA and dated throughout college, and their relationship blossomed throughout undergrad. From frat parties to graduation, they fell in love! At their wedding, they were surrounded by family and friends who covered them in love and so obviously adore them. I enjoyed every minute of my time getting to know Caitlin + Jackson and their sweet, silly love. Happy Anniversary, lovebirds!! Thank you for trusting me with your big day! 

p.s. Caitlin is a supa fun n trendy fashion blogger and wrote some blogs about her wedding planning experience! I love the wisdom she shared, and it is definitely worth a read for all you brides out there! You can find it here: http://keepingitcaitlin.com/
 (and I'm just so thankful for all the unreal kind words she said about me *tears*)

Lauren + Harrison | Pecan Springs Ranch, Dripping Springs, TX | Texas Wedding Photographer

Can you say....GOAAAAALS?!?! Cause this wedding is all of them. All of the dreamy, heart-melting, magical goals. Narrowing this blog down was quite possibly the hardest thing I did in 2017. I adore every image and moment that came from Lauren + Harrison's big day. I can't say enough about how sweet and kind Lauren + Harrison were to me through the whole process, from shooting their engagements to delivering their photos. Clients like them make me so incredibly thankful that this job allows me to meet so many amazing couples and celebrate their love in these seasons. It is an honor that I will never take for granted. 

On this gorgeous summer day, they vowed themselves to one another for life. The elegant florals and romantic candle lit reception were the perfect backdrops, to balance the rustic charm of Pecan Springs Ranch. To start the day, Lauren + Harrison shared the slow getting ready hours with their friends and family, exchanging heartfelt sentiments and last moments of singleness with the people they love, until they finally got to see each other during an amazing first look. As the sun began to lower, it was time for the big moment. The vows. The ethereal, glowing scene was out of a storybook of my dreams. Their gorgeous wedding quickly became a summer garden party as kids played games in the lawn, guests mingled in the sunset, and we danced our booties off under string lights. It was the party of a lifetime!

My favorite moments of the day: 1) Shooting getting ready photos in the dreamiest all-white room of the bridal suite! The light was heavenly, and Lauren had the sweetest moment reading Harrison's letter to her, making the scene simply perfect. 2) My most favorite recessional EVER. You will die. 3) DONKEYS...you'll have to scroll through the blog for more on that one ;)

Lauren + Harrison, thank you for sharing your love with everyone around you. It is a joy to see the way you adore and care for each other and a dream come true to have been your photographer! All my love!!

Kathleen + Steven | Enchanted Rock Engagement Session | Texas Wedding Photographer

Wowww, I don't know if e-sessions get any dreamier than Enchanted Rock with these lovebirds. This session included all of my fave things: ultimate chill, playfulness, movement, and the two best times of day, golden hour, and blue hour. Also, no session better shows how much I love walking shots LOL (a little too much maybe??). If you haven't been to Enchanted Rock, you're in for quite a hike to the top, but it is oh so worth the sunset view. This was my first session at ER, which I was all too excited for because I had my own engagement photos done there!! Kathleen, Steven, and I played around at the bottom of the rock for the first half of the shoot, not anticipating how hot it turned out to be that day (hello, sweat). But nothing got these two down!!! They were as sweet and natural in front of the camera as it gets. Helps that Steven absolutely adores Kathleen. I mean, these two are just. so. in. looove. Ah, the cutest. When it started to cool down and was 45 min. to sunset, we began the (hella steep) mile hike to the top. I had an idea of what I wanted to shoot when the sun hit perfectly on the horizon, but when we got there, the light blew me away. Seriously, it may be in my top five favorite sunsets ever. I just began shooting every angle and second I could, shot a little video, and just let these two play and dance until we couldn't see the sun anymore. No plans. No stress. No rigid posing. Just soaking in the love and sun-drenched goodness all around us. It was one of the most magical moments of my career yet.

Can't wait for your big day, lovebirds!!
