John & Anh’s San Francisco Engagement Session

July 3, 2014

Back in April, I flew out to San Francisco to hang with John and Anh and shoot some engagement photos. This was such a fun day for several reasons. First of all, it was a great way to see and photograph the city. We stopped at Potrero Hill, the Sutro Baths, Sausalito, Pier 7 on the Embarcadero, a couple of beaches, the Golden Gate Bridge, Mill Valley, Muir Woods (although we weren’t able to shoot there). Having the opportunity to shoot engagement photos at a location like this is so much fun since most of the time when we travel, all I say is “I really want to do a shoot here!” I actually got to this time!

It was also fun because I learned that the Chinese food I had been eating my whole life was complete garbage. John and Anh schooled me on some authentic Chinese food and took me to this little hidden gem in the city where I ate way too many dumplings. As a proclaimed Chinese food lover, I was basically on cloud nine (and a little embarrassed to think that I had been living a lie up until this point… A LIE!).

Anyways… anyone want to go to San Francisco?

Clint & Lottie’s Spontaneous Roadside Colorado Photo Shoot

April 16, 2014

Earlier this year, we went to Colorado for a ski trip with our friends Clint & Lottie (of Grit + Gold & Bowtie Vintage Classics). On our way back from the mountains to the airport, we had planned on stopping at a few different places to get some photos, have lunch, and take in some of the scenery. Unfortunately, a blizzard decided to drop in on us, turning what should’ve been a 2 hour drive into an 8 hour drive and ruining all of our plans for the day. Right as the snow started to let up a little, we spotted a rest stop with a pretty awesome view. We jumped out, grabbed a couple photos, jumped back in, and headed home.

Travis & Jahneen’s Arbor Hills Engagement Session

April 16, 2014

I was pretty pumped to shoot Travis & Jahneen’s engagement session. Jahneen and my sister grew up together and she has been a SixFourteen fan since the beginning, so I was pretty much stoked when these two booked me to shoot their wedding. We started out in Frisco around the Heritage Museum and then ended up at Arbor Hills Nature Reserve in Plano. By the way, when you hear photographers talk about the “golden hour”, the shots towards the end are what they are referring to. That golden warm sunlight! It made for some awesome images.

JB and Missy’s Dallas Engagement Session

March 17, 2014

Do JB & Missy look cold in these photos? I’m asking because it was negative 47 degrees when these photos were taken. Obviously I’m exagerating… that was just the wind chill. Seriously though, if Missy looks like she’s snuggling up to JB for warmth, that’s because she is. It was so cold that a hitchhiker was holding out a picture of a thumb (thanks for the joke, Google). Have I done a good enough job describing how cold it was that day? Because dang…

Alright, I’m going to be honest… these two were crazy nervous about being photographed. I was pumped, but they were nervous. But did they really need to be? I mean… c’mon! They killed it! And they were brave! Check out the image in the middle of the busy road! I loved that they were down for that one.

Andy & Nikki’s Arbor Hill Engagement Session

August 16, 2013

I met up with Andy and Nikki for a jaunt around Arbor Hills Nature Reserve in Plano and then a trip to the West End for their engagement session. They chose Arbor Hills because this is where Andy proposed to Nikki, so it was especially significant to them. So, while jaunting, I was attacked by mosquitos (which my web browser is currently telling me is misspelled due to the fact that I refuse to capitalize the word out of spite), chiggers and a tiny little vicious rock that thought it would be funny to split my toe open (which I now believe is broken as well). But who cares about all that! We got some killer images! So we headed downtown, and while shooting around the West End, we spotted the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge about 5 minutes from sundown, and decided to race over there to shoot some photos on it. We were able to get some good ones, but got kicked off by the police. Over all, the main 2 words that come to mind when I think about this shoot… Worth it!
