The fairytale began for Adrianna and Christopher the day they met online. Christopher wrote another chapter in that fairytale when he proposed on a September day during a visit to Fredericksburg. I fell in love with their engagement photos instantly and can’t wait for their wedding day!
Proposing at the Top of Enchanted Rock
He popped the question at the top of Enchanted Rock, appropriately named for such a romantic event. Seeing Christopher pull out a ring while taking in the view took Adrianna by complete surprise. She very quickly and emphatically said, “Yes!” The couple has said that Fredericksburg is one of their favorite places to visit and now they’ve added one more reason why they love it there. They also have a wonderful, new memory of that location remember the start of their engagement in all their years together to come.
Mutual Love for Education and Date Nights in San Antonio
Even though they lived in San Antonio, one of the largest cities in the U.S., they lived down the street from each other for an entire year before they even met. Education is important to both Adrianna and Christopher and, when they finish graduate school, they will have an impressive six degrees between them. While Christopher admires Adrianna’s open-mindedness and kind spirit, Adrianna appreciates Christopher’s beautiful smile and self-titled funniest man in the room moniker.
For date nights, they love trying new and interesting restaurants and admit they love going to the movies a little too much! When they really want to get away from it all they enjoy traveling to The Cove, The Pearl, pretty much any state park, and, of course, Fredericksburg. Tbilisi, Georgia is a dream location for the couple to travel to together since Christopher taught there for several months and wants to share this amazing location with Adrianna some day.
Gorgeous Natural Lighting for Sunset Engagement
Since the couple loves the outdoors, we held their engagement photos session at a beautiful location with great lighting. With the perfect backdrop provided by Mother Nature, I was able to capture the full extent of Adrianna and Christopher’s love for one another along with their playful nature. Posing in an open field, amongst the trees, and along the water, Adrianna and Christopher were able to help me preserve some light-hearted and romantic moments that are uniquely them.
Looking ahead to Adrianna and Christopher’s wedding day, I am excited and honored to help them write yet another chapter in the love story as they become husband and wife.

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!

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!
