All week long the forecast was grim. It was going to rain on Trevor and Julia’s big day. I was bummed to tell you the truth. However, Julia never faltered. She prayed everyday for their wedding day. She had her friends and family pray for God’s will to be. Whatever it was. Rain, shine, snow or fire. She wanted it just as God had intended. As we walked into the bridal suite Julia’s smile lit up the room and her laugh filled the air…and it wasn’t raining. Then as we had our time with the bridal party for photos we laughed and ooed and awed over Julia’s amazing dress and how beautiful she looked…and still no rain. Then as we all prepared for the ceremony it started to drizzle. Julia, her sweet soon to be husband Trevor and all of their friends gathered together in prayer. Prayer for them as the started their marriage. A prayer of thanks for the rain. And a prayer that the whole day be to God’s glory. Umbrellas up. Cue the music. Julia and her teary eyed Dad stood arm and arm as the doors opened and she saw Trevor. Her smile beamed, his eyes teared, and the rain stopped. The ceremony was gorgeous, so sweet and filled with emotion and I kept looking over at Ben in amazement at this little miracle we were a part of. It was incredible and I just loved every frame. After the ceremony these two were total models during portrait time and then as soon as we got them into the reception the skies opened and it rained. It rained the rest of the night as the new bride and groom danced the night away. Trevor, Julia, you guys are one of a kind. We are so honored to have been a part of such a magical day. Enjoy!

Colton and Allie were married at Poetry Springs on the last day of fall in Texas. Quite literally the leaves were falling around us as the gorgeous warm sun peeked through the trees. It was MAGICAL. I remember all day saying “Y’all! This is the most beautiful fall day I’ve ever shot!” and it was. From the first moment we arrived to the first glance Colton got of his sweet bride it was a super sweet and emotional day. We loved every minute. Winters, we love ya! Thanks so much to you and your families for adopting us for the day and for being so sweet! Enjoy some of our faves!

The day we met Shelbi and Adam we literally took up their entire night chatting. I felt so bad afterward but time flies when you’re having fun ha! Shelbi is hilarious and we instantly bonded over our love for The Pioneer Woman, Jimmy Fallon and all things about their amazing wedding next fall! You guys, they’re blocking off the whole square in her hometown for the reception. COOLEST. You can follow her planning process and read more about them over at her blog Sincerely Shelbi! Go. Read it. You’re welcome. We shot their engagement photos a few days ago and it was cold. Like really cold. But these two never faltered. They did AMAZING and I’m so excited to share their downtown Dallas engagement photos with you. austinengagementphotos_2426austinengagementphotos_2427austinengagementphotos_2428austinengagementphotos_2429austinengagementphotos_2430austinengagementphotos_2431austinengagementphotos_2432austinengagementphotos_2433austinengagementphotos_2434austinengagementphotos_2436austinengagementphotos_2437austinengagementphotos_2439austinengagementphotos_2440austinengagementphotos_2441

I wrote a post like this on my old blog and was pretty much preaching to the crowd because the only people that read it were my mom, Sarah, and my siblings HA! But now there may be a few of you that don’t know anything about me except that I shoot weddings, love my husband and have two wrinkly faced bulldogs. Well well, y’all there’s much more to be told.

austinengagementphotos_2425

1)I’m deathly afraid of scary movies…and masks. Can’t watch them in theaters. Can’t watch them at home. Can’t even watch the trailers, y’all. It’s bad. One time, I was slumber partying with my BFF Sarah and her big sister Kate and we watched Hocus Pocus. You know the DISNEY movie with a talking cat and witches that looked more like Christmas elves? Yeah. Scared me so bad that I had to go home and sleep in my mom and dads bed. #wussiestofthewusses
2) Everytime Ben and I are out of town we buy a coffee cup from that city. We started it about 3 years ago during a trip to LA and it just sort of stuck. Now we have a cabinet full and every time we have our morning coffee we get to go on a little vacation and it’s pretty awesome:) I can’t choose a favorite but this Central Perk cup is pretty high on the list. We got it while we were in California for Shelby and Mike’s wedding. We toured Warner Brothers and literally sat where Ross and Rachel sat. I was dying. Since you all know my obsession with Friends you know how crazy awesome this was :)
3)I never learned how to ride a bike. It’s super embarrassing. Super ridiculous. But it’s just one of those things I guess. HA!
4) I’m obsessed with Volcano candles from Anthro. Our sweet bride, Hayden bought me one for Christmas last year and I’ve been hooked ever since!
5)I played softball in college. More importantly I pitched. Some of it was awesome. Some of it was hard. But all in all I learned a lot and it was a great season of life for me. It’s how I met Ben. I got to play with my best friend for the majority of it. So I chalk it up as a win.
6) I have an online shopping problem. I think it’s more about getting mail than anything else because I usually don’t but anything super awesome but package day makes my life!
7) I’ve got one brother and two sisters of which I’m the oldest. My parents had me and took a 7 year baby hiatus then decided their nest needed three more birdies in it. These kids, y’all. They make my life. Dakota is a volleyball player in high school. She sets. She’s aweseome and unabashedly honest. Makayla is a thespian and a singer and is one of the most talented people I’ve ever met. She’s on her way to New York City for school in the fall. I’m PUMPED to say the least. And Colton…oh Colton the best kid brother a girl could ask for. He’s heading off to college in January and I’m just sad…I wish they all would go back to being in elementary school so we could slumber party in my room again. #memories
8) If I were a millionaire I would have a daily throw pillow rotation. I LOVE them and I think they make a room. Ben totally agrees…(shakes head in disagreement). He may or may not have had to give me a budget for them so I don’t spend our whole savings on couch adornments. DUMB.
9) I LOVE The Pioneer Woman. Like love her. I have all of her cookbooks, read her blog and watch her show every Saturday while I get ready for weddings. Ben thinks I’m a creep but I 100% just want her to be my friend so we can hang out and I can show her my cinnamon bun making skills and talk about cows. #fangirl
10) I’ve been to Disney land more than six flags. My sweet family lives in LA and we go out there to visit quite a bit. More when I was younger unfortunately:(BUT we always made at least one trip to The Happiest Place On Earth when we visit. It’s one of my favorite things on the planet and they’re some of my favorite memories ever. Ben hasn’t taken me yet and I may or may not big him about it at least every other day. Mickey Ears and It’ A Small World, people. It’s ways dreams are made of.

When Ben and I were planning our wedding Sadie and Gerry were doing the same. We got married five days apart and weeks before Sadie and I cooked up the idea that I would take their bride and groom portraits the morning after their big day. IT. WAS. AWESOME. So awesome in fact that it’s now a yearly tradition. This year is extra special though because Murphdog is now in their life! If you know us at all you KNOW that we are dog people so when they became a 8 legged family we were tickled to death. Sadie, Gerry, you always bring your model A game when I see you and I’m just blown away! You guys are so special to us and we love getting to celebrate with you year after year! Here’s to year three for both of us!
