Rachel and David couldn’t be more perfect together. I love the way their jokes and “I love yous” seamlessly weave in and out of their conversations. Belly laughs turn into hand holding and hugs in one blink and you can’t help but feel joyful and thankful that God is thoughtful and intentional enough to dream up two people who fit together as well as these two do. Their Highland Park session couldn’t have been more beautiful!
Holly and Paden tied the knot last Saturday, which means I don’t have to keep her bridal session at the Bella Donna Chapel a secret anymore! YAY!! You’ll understand why that was so difficult for me in about 3 seconds…
Ladies and gents, prepare to fall in love. Beau and Si are one of those couples that make it easy to fall in love with them. Laughter is more natural than breathing, it seems, when these two are together. I can’t get enough of their playful banter, mixed with loving compliments. They are a perfect match and I am so blessed to be a part of this amazing chapter in their love story.
On top of all of their wonderful qualities, like it could get any better, they are creative as all get out. Ok, maybe Beau is the creative one and Si just rides along on the journey but his muscles sure did help on our shoot! Just kidding Si, I know you’re pretty creative too…right? I LOVE couples who come to me with vision and dreams, even more than that I get so much joy in helping their vision come to life. So, when Beau started to describe her idea of a “bohemian engagement” session, I was sold. This shoot was one of those “this is why I love my job” days.
Nicole, you are beautiful. Your idea for a ballerina senior session was perfect! If capturing your grace, kindness, compassion, integrity, intention and beauty is even possible, I couldn’t be more grateful that you chose me to try! I don’t know anyone else who could have executed her form so perfectly on an icy dock in 39 degree weather.
I met Nicole when I was her camp counselor at Pine Cove and if you’d have told me 5 years ago, that I would be taking her senior pictures, I would have never believed it. I knew Nicole was a prize, even back then. She was kind, genuine and loving…these traits are only more evident now and I can’t wait to see the big plans God has for her at Baylor next fall!
The rest of her senior session will be on the blog a little later, I felt like this session deserved a post of it’s own.
I don’t know a girl who wasn’t jealous of Annie Banks when the snow began to fall as she played basketball with her dad the night before her wedding day. Father Of The Bride set the precedent for all wedding envy early in the 90s and it still does. When Morgan saw the forecast of 2 inches of ICE for her wedding this past Saturday, she had 2 choices, be upset, or be excited. Thankfully, she chose the latter and took everything in beautiful stride. There are few couples who can withstand the pressure of planning a wedding, and re-planning the weekend before, but I know a few and Morgan and Cody are now all star members of our elite group. Whats more, is the amount of grace they gave to everyone throughout the weekend. Through their love, smiles, hugs and tears you could feel they were thankful, grateful for every soul who sled their way to their big day. Their hearts were full, and it was truly beautiful.
I don’t know anyone else, besides the Lord (not even Franck Eggelhoffer) who could pull of setting a wedding atmosphere like this. He showed off in some incredible ways for this STUNNING winter wedding. Icicles catching light and complementing the beautiful chandeliers , the 2 inches on the ground with their ripples that matched Morgans gown and veil perfectly, and the uncanny way that 18 degrees just makes you want to be that much closer to the ones you love. Take that, Annie Banks! Now, grab a cup of hot cocoa, your favorite blanket and enjoy this gorgeous Gather Mckinney wedding.
Leave some love for the couple in a comment below, and I’ll be sure to send you a link to the full gallery later this week!
