Conroe TX Engagement Photos: Stephanie + Daniel

Daniel + Stephanie have been going to the same school since middle school but they never knew each other. They officially meet through his cousin, which is a friend of Stephanie’s, when she was in her senior year of high school. He took her to her senior prom and after that they started dating.  April 25, 2008 to be exact!  7 years later on April 25, 2015, the two tied the knot at Olde Dobbin Station.  You can view their wedding here.

Ruston LA Bridal Portraits | Jessica

I’ve known this gorgeous girl since she was probably around 8.  I had the honor of taking her bridal portraits one weekend in Louisiana and I couldn’t be more proud of how they turned out.  Jess, you have grown into a beautiful woman and I am blessed to call you family!  Thanks for including me in your big day with Grant!  Love you!


Now, without further ado…check out Jessica’s bridals!





Olde Dobbin Station Wedding | Richard + Emily

This love story was told so many different ways the night of their wedding.  I believe, if I have my math correct, it was told 12 times…but each story was different.  It was like each story was a puzzle piece and if you put them all together you got Richard + Emily’s love story.  They started dating while in college…she was an Aggie, he was a Red Raider.  They fell in love, she moved to Lubbock and became a Red Raider, too!  He’s funny, she’s witty and smart…they make the perfect pair.  I could have listened to their friends and family talk about them all night.  It was the longest yet sweetest round of toasts I have ever witnessed:)

Richard + Emily, thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your special day at Old Dobbin Station!  I feel like I am part of the family and totally in with your crew.:) I had a great time!

Montgomery TX Engagements : Brad + Kelli

“She stood in the storm, + when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails.” -Elizabeth Edwards

I have searched for the words to describe how beautiful this love story is and I keep coming up short.  Kelli lost her first husband to a motorcycle accident, and some, how years later, Brad came along and as much as Kelli tried to push him away…he stayed.  Eventually, Kelli let this gentle giant in and they fell in love.  He proposed in February and they will be saying “I do!” in April at Hodge Podge Lodge!  I am beyond honored to document this love story!

Shonda - Amazing! The love they have for one another is truly captured in these photographs. I’ve known Kelli for about 10 years or so, and I’m so happy she found Brad!! She means a lot to me, and it’s so good to see her smile again :)
