brooke & ben

So we had a blast taking photos. As one lady said, "What do you think you're doing?? Oh, no you're not!" Brooke and Ben did an amazing job scouting Abilene and found some perfect new locations. Not many people are aware of a sign and kitchen appliances grave yard! Such greatness, it was almost overwhelming! :D

Here are some of my favorites. I posted other's on facebook.

This is the first shoot that I am starting to slowly love my Canon. I never thought I would say that! I can really tell the difference in clarity, color, and true definition.... yikes! It hurts to admit it, but I'm happy with the switch.

Jason and Hannah

This past weekend, Caroline Joy and I had the amazing blessing to photo Hannah and Jason's wedding in Galveston. Despite the 7 hr drive (one-way), the wedding was blissful. I have always felt that the Texas coast was not something to be desired, but it was surprisingly beautiful and has permanently changed my mind about Galveston's attractions. The weather was perfect, bright skies, light wind, and about 75 degrees; I hope my wedding has those conditions!! The wedding and reception were beautiful, and the most impressive part is the entire event went smoothly and without complication.

So, great work ladies! :D And way to go Brian for driving to North Houston for the flowers!
Here are my favorites. I love how vibrant the colors are!

I think this was my favorite moment from the wedding ceremony...that and when Adam would ask me to take some "crazy" photos with him...aka, hilarious facial expressions....

I had to limit myself to how many I posted, but those are my fav's! Let me know what you think :)
Hope you guys had a blast on your honeymoon!! I emailed Nomers more photos for you to have a more thorough sneak-peak!

so, do you need anything else?

So Kelli and I have been trying to take these photos for months! And I'm really excited by how great the weather was... Before you look at them, keep in mind that this is my first time to take photos with large animals, and as fun as it fun, it was pretty tricky! Looking back on the photos I realize, if there is a next time, there are some obvious things I need to change. For one, get a few shots with the entire horse in the photo. Second, get the horse to smile. Just kidding...haha. Anyways, I hope you like them and  Kelli and let me know if we should schedule another session :D And, thanks Alison for being the best assistant EVER!

partly cloudy and 85 degrees

I love taking photos. This afternoon was an absolute blast. I was so blessed to take photos of Brooke and Cade. It's always such a strange experience meeting a couple that I have so much in common with...I feel as though I should have known you two! I don't know what was better, knowing I'm not the only non-exercise girl out there that is engaged to a pro-fit guy or dating for what seems like forever (about 4 years!! ouch!).

They had the amazing idea to use Cade's old yellow truck...the colors were so vibrant! Then we drove out to Buffalo Gap and snapped photos till we were too fatigued to smile. One would think taking photos is simple and relaxing...but man, I'm almost always sore the next day...meaning, a nice workout! (And Brad... that's why I don't need to go to the gym....haha, it's an extenuating circumstance :D).

I'm going to stop while I'm ahead...haha

Here are my favorites! It's hard to pick which ones to show... the weather was perfect and the model's were great!

the perfect subjects

I had a blast with Shelbie and Kalum at their engagement session...first off, they are so kind, comfortable with one another, and willing to try out my hair-brained ideas. So, thanks for making the session easy :D. Despite no sun, I really like how their photos turned out. I kinda wish it would have rained like the last 30 minutes so we could have gotten some amazing rain photos...soo, any couples out there that is willing to try out some rain photos, let me know!

We started on S1st and then kept finding random locations of greatness. I am trying to avoid saying the word amazing...poor Shelbie and Kalum, I probably said it about 100 times, at least.... ouch!

Enjoy :D
