Maddie and David
Dreamy Ranch Engagement Session
Y’all… meet Maddie and David! After dating for almost 3 years .. David asked Maddie to be his forever and ever 🙂 and of course… she said YES! David proposed to Maddie at white rock lake in Dallas. He surprised her with a picnic in the park with snacks and wine! Seriously, how cute is that?!! They spent the rest of the evening celebrating with a surprise (A surprise for Maddie) engagement dinner party! I loved the connection these 2 have with each other. They were both so much fun!
Let’s talk locations… because I think its so important to pick a location that fits who y’all are. Maddie and David wanted an open field style– and I have a few locations that I love to use! In the end we picked this beautiful park that had so many options… and this location is quickly becoming one of my favorite! This location was a perfect fit for Maddie and David!
Here are a few of my favorite images from their engagement session…
field of flowers + Texas golden sun + Maddie and David = <3 <3 lots and lots of LOVE

I love Maddie’s engagement ring… and love that its yellow gold!
I have way too many favorite images from this engagement session! Congratulations to Maddie + David on their engagement! I am so excited for their upcoming wedding and cannot wait to capture it all!! Thank you for trusting me with documenting one of the most important days of your life (and the little in-betweens along the way)

The Grande Hall at Hofmann Ranch Castroville, TX
This beautiful Texas Hill Country wedding venue is quickly becoming one of my favorite wedding venues! I love that couples have the option to use the indoor venue, outdoors and the open air venue. This location is so peaceful and romantic.
I loved the soft romantic tones of this wedding… this wedding had a romantic + classic + timeless feel. I loved that Jessica added hints of Navy to the decor to add that little pop of color.
Here are a few of my favorite images…..
Bridals before the first look. Jessica… you are a gorgeous bride!
Jessica’s + Jessica’s wedding dress is complete perfection!

Gruene Estate Wedding Venue New Braunfels, TX
This gorgeous wedding venue in New Braunfels, TX has quickly become one of my favorite! From the open air chapel to the rustic reception area… this venue has so much to offer. I was so happy when Kim and Matthew decided to have their wedding portraits taken here! Kim started off with hair and makeup with Stephanie | Vanity Eiland then headed to the venue for “Day after” wedding portraits.
Day after wedding sessions are the best! Let me tell you why……… you do not have to worry about a timeline– You can take your time getting ready… you can spend the day pampering yourself… and a HUGE plus—- You both will be way more relaxed!! You can end the evening with a nice relaxing dinner out. Plus, who doesn’t want to get back into their wedding dress again?!! On wedding day…there is so much going on. Your day will go by so fast! Trust me…. at the end of the night— you’re going to wonder where the day went.
Here are a few of my favorites for Kim and Matthews session… I love this chapel!
We decided to take a moment and reflect… and I think it turned out perfectly.
loving this sun flare… and of course this sweet laughter.
I love Kim’s Augusta Jones Wedding dress! Kim picked up this amazing dress at Kleinfeld’s in New York City.
I seriously have way too many favorites from this session! Congratulation to Matthew and Kim! I can’t wait to see these two again!

Hidden Falls, Spring Branch, TX
It’s no secret… I love photographing wedding at Hidden Falls. I love the moss tree’s..the waterfall… that this venue is tucked away (literally…lol) in the Texas Hill County.

These are probably some of my favorite moments of the wedding day! This is when it really hits that it’s FINALLY wedding day….!! You’ll start to feel those butterflies — the nerves start to kick in.. all the excitement + joy + happiness! It’s so awesome to see all of these emotions unfold!

Hidden Falls Spring Branch, TX
An elegant wedding at Hidden Falls in Spring Branch, TX ! This was such a dream to photograph! I love the variety of location options this gorgeous wedding venue has to offer. From the open outdoor locations (open fields, waterfalls, trees, etc) to the gorgeous indoor locations. Not only did Felicia have her beautiful bridals here… she also had her amazing wedding here!
Felicia + Derrick
After 4 beautiful years of dating, Derrick asked Felicia to be his forever… and of course, she said YES! This is how it all went down… January 29th was the day. Derrick had been secretly planning this amazing night for months (Only their family and close friends were in on the secret). He rented a room at the Westin Downtown River walk Hotel (if you have never been to this hotel… please check it out. Its pretty amazing).
How he Asked
The hotel room had an amazing view and was filled with roses + the sweetest love letter…. Derrick got down on one knee and asked Felicia to be his forever and ever. Hello…. Best best proposal ever?!! And… it doesn’t end here…. later that evening they went to dinner at Paesanos on the River walk where they celebrated with their family and close friends. I think its safe to say that this was BEST night of their life… well, except for the wedding day! 🙂
Felicia and Derrick’s wedding day was filled with so much joy + happiness + love. Here are a few of my favorite images from the wedding day… (trying to narrow down my favorites when I love them all… was so hard)
When your dress is amazing… and the train is long… you will need all of your amazing Bridesmaids to help steam it!
I loved this little detail Felicia added to her bridal bouquet!
Getting ready for the first look with Dad. I love these little moments.
Sweet love between father and daughter is one to be cherished.
Dad gives a “Thumbs Up” and we agree!
And now meet the Groom!
Flowers by Brenda Fry always does an amazing job!
I love this ceremony site! There’s so many options here!
We decided to venture away from the waterfalls for Bride + Groom portraits.. and I am so glad we did!
The Bride + Groom portraits were photographed with a mix of Medium Formal Film (Fuji400) and Digital.
We had just the right amount of light + sun flare….
Sweet laughter and kisses…
Goodness.. this cake was amazing!!!! Creations cake did an awesome job!
You see this cake… well, steam really came out of that tube!
The first dance!
Yes, she changed dresses… how amazing is this dress!
Wedding tip: Allow me to clear your wedding venue out before your exit (this gives everyone time to get their sparklers, etc) and have a last dance. You wont regret it! Its so Romantic—-!! Plus… this dance only takes about 1.5-3 minutes– you’d just be standing around anyway waiting for everyone outside to get ready 🙂
Time for the exit!
Congratulations to Felicia and Derrick!
