Spring Wedding at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin

Gosh, what can I say about Cody and Chuck that will do them justice? The first thing I think when I look back on their wedding is how genuinely positive and optimistic they were, despite some things not going quite as planned.

Tender Engagement Session at Grosse Point Lighthouse in Evanston, Illinois

Every so often, you’re lucky enough to meet a couple like Brenda and Kevin, full of vibrant joy and enthusiasm for one another. People often ask me how best to pose for engagement photos…but really, the answer is to not “pose” or focus so heavily on it – portraits like this sing when you can let loose […]

Vineyard Wedding Inspiration in the Texas Hill Country

The rolling hills of central Texas are near and dear to my heart, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when my friend Coley, from 3 of Cups Design + Florals, asked me to photograph a styled shoot at Spicewood Vineyards earlier this September.

Dreamy Outdoor Ceremony at the Wind Point Lighthouse

I first met Marisa and Jim in a small coffee shop on the East side of Austin. It was serendipitous that this beautiful couple, who was engaged in Texas, was moving up to Milwaukee in the summer and planned to marry there as well. I’m so happy our schedules aligned so I was able to photograph […]

After two flights and three hours of driving through barren […]
