Wedding at Chapel at Ana Villa Details



Hey everybody!

I have such a stunning wedding to share with y'all over the next few days. The mother of the bride created such a masterpiece vision and with the help of Todd Events in Dallas, the Chapel at Ana Villa was transformed into a floral wedding wonderland. Here are some of my favorite floral details. In-Cred-Ible!

Mallori's Fayetteville Bridal Portraits



Hey everybody!

I know I'm not supposed to have favorites, but Mallori is absolutely one of the kindest Benny Brides of all-time. We're in Dallas photographing her wedding with Zach (also kind!) so I'm excited that I finally get to share these bridal portraits with y'all!  We photographed these bridal portraits at Pratt Place Inn in Fayetteville.

Review: Canon 200mm f/2



Hey everybody!

I recently had the opportunity to shoot the Canon 200mm f/2 lens and thought I'd post a few thoughts on what I liked and didn't like about the lens...

First off, I LOVE the hokeh of the lens.  The background melts away into pretty much nothing.  Second, it's much lighter than the previous f1.8 version and I can even hand hold it for the entire portrait session (see an image below shot with the lens). The downside is obviously price and it's difficult to fit in my shootsac (I turned it upside down and it fit in, but I was sweating the entire time that it would fall out).  Overall, I really want to buy this lens and add it to my repertoire. For low-light ceremonies in Catholic church, it would be my saving grace (pun intended). Haha!

Benny Booth: Now Offering On-site Printing!



Hey everybody!

This is cool... I love shooting in the Benny Booth, and now I'm able to print 4x6s right at the event! For just a little add-on to the wedding packages, I can set up a printer at the reception that prints out pretty much immediately (less than 30 seconds!), allowing wedding guests to have a great souvenir from the event. So fun, right?

Hilton Family Portraits



Hey everybody!

I've known Wade for more than a decade. He's a photographer himself and I've always been impressed with his eye (he was one of my college photography students). Now, look at his sweet family!  His girls are blessings. :)

Celebrate Magazine Feature: Katie and Ethan



Hey everybody!

Gahhhh.... how fun is this? I recently found out that Katie and Ethan's wedding was featured in Celebrate Magazine!  It's such an honor that not only my couples trust me to photograph their big day, but that I have the coolest and most stylish clients that magazines want to publish their weddings. I'm so thankful! Wow wow wow!

Here's the feature...

Sloane + Zach Hocker: More Wedding Portraits



Hey everybody!

I can't quit these two.  I know it's because they're just as beautiful inside as they are outside (seriously... I became such good friends with these two during their wedding weekend).  But also, it's because the light and location were BOMB - Sassafras Springs Vineyard is a rockin' spot for a wedding.  Enjoy this mega post of portraits, and know that I had pretty much nothing to do with how pretty they came out. :)
