Rebecca and David are Married!

I just got home from Rebecca and David's gorgeous wedding and I just had to share a few photos of their wonderful wedding day :)
Rebecca and David did a first look before their wedding and it was so sweet. I love the way he looks at her.
 And her at him...they are truly in love.
Immediately a hug.
 Pure joy on Rebecca's face.
A little practice of their first dance.
 The happy couple.
 Royal Avenue Baptist Church is so pretty. We took a few photos outside before the ceremony in front of the church and in the brick arches.
 And a few more inside afterward.
Congratulations Rebecca and David! I'll have the rest of your photos edited soon.

Kailey's Senior Portraits

Let me tell you a story about Kailey. I met her on her birthday. Literally, on her birth day. Way back in Lubbock in the 90's. She's graduating from high school this year and I was honored to get to photograph her today to commemorate this life milestone as well. It's pretty amazing to get to be a small part of someone's life...I love my job and the wonderful people who allow me to capture the big things, the small things and all the little in between things that we call memories. Today was a happy day.

Here's a peek at the beautiful young lady that I photographed on her "birthday" all those years ago. Congratulations Kailey, you are amazing.
 She plays the trumpet.
 and softball.
 Kailey can totally rock the "game" face and the smile.
 Love this one.
 So pretty!
Finally a few with her letter jacket.
 I hope you love them! I'll have the rest edited for you soon.

Michelle and Roatha are Married!

Today Michelle and Roatha got married at Lost Oaks Winery in Burleson, Texas. Superstition says that if it rains on your wedding day you will be lucky. Well...Michelle and Roatha are very lucky indeed. Lucky they found each other, lucky they have a sweet beautiful little girl together and lucky to have such wonderful friends and family to celebrate their love with. I don't usually cry at weddings...but today I shed a few tears of joy for this lucky couple who got married on a rainy Sunday. Congrats Michelle and Roatha, love you both!
 Michelle, Roatha and their beautiful little girl.
The rings.
They had this pretty little box for the ring bearer to carry.
A few of Michelle's details.
 It's wedding time. I love that moment when dad looks at his daughter when walking her in. Roatha was all smiles.
Because of the rain they had to move their ceremony indoors and their wasn't really an aisle for the processional, but that's OK. I love this view of Michelle looking at Roatha and Kiri. Everyone had a nice view of everyone walking in and of the ceremony.
 The wedding party.
 Love the way they look at each other.
 So Roatha gave Kiri the rose from his boutonniere...and is ended up being such a funny moment.
 The kiss!
 Picture time!
 The whole wedding party during a quick break in the rain.
 The handsome guys.
 The beautiful ladies.
 Michelle and Roatha and I walked to the area where their ceremony was supposed to be...and it was so worth it. Such a pretty little place to take photos.
 Such a fun couple.
 First Dance.
 Michelle's dance with her dad.
 So this is where I lost it. While Michelle was dancing with her daddy...Kiri got to dance with her daddy too. Sweetest moment ever.
 So they had a grilled cheese food truck to serve food and of course wine. I'm calling this the perfect paring...and it's so fun too.
 Their cake. YUM! Michelle love penguins so the cake was topped with three penguin. So cute!
 Party time. DJ P Love kept everyone dancing all afternoon.
 And he even took a selfie with some of my Summit Peeps.
 The anniversary dance. It's never more perfect than when I can get both the bride and grooms parents dancing in the same shot as the happy couple. :)
 She loves him :)
 Last dance.
 Love that smile.
 Time to go! Bubbles and love for the send off.
 Congratulations Roatha and Michelle!
