Becca & John’s Nature Engagement Session

Becca & John’s Nature Engagement Session

I’m so excited to share these pictures with you! Becca and John are so great! I’ve known Becca and John for around 2 years now. Becca came to me right after John proposed and asked me to shoot her engagement photos. I was ecstatic to shoot some of their engagement photos! I went scouting for locations a week before and found some places I thought reflected them as a couple. Not only did I find the perfect locations, but they were perfect with Becca’s idea for her Save the Dates she made from the photos!

Becca is one of the craftiest people I know! I knew going into her session she was going to have the best props and ideas! I’ve got to give John some credit though. He did come up with the concept of one of my favorite images from the session (the one with “Save the Date” and 6.16.12 written on the chalkboards). With Becca and John’s ideas combined, it was a fun and creative engagement session!
















Have a great weekend!


Josh & Amberle Downtown Fayetteville Engagement Session

Josh & Amberle Downtown Fayetteville Engagement Session

What can you say when your clients are also your best friends? I think it’s the biggest honor to have my friends ask me to shoot their wedding…and pay me for it! It’s the best compliment, and to boot, I get to work with my best friends on and leading up to their happiest day!

Amberle & Josh are amazing! I knew them before they knew each other and I can’t believe the amazingness of them finding each other and falling in love. It’s a true love story!

Amberle and I both come from small towns pretty close to each other. We met at church and got closer when we took some English literature classes together. We took African-American Literature together and she was my discussion partner. I’m pretty sure we never really discussed Beloved or Uncle Tom’s Cabin, because I was reading Twilight at the time and that’s all I wanted to talk about. Then, our friendship was taken to a whole different level when we decided to live together! She was the best roommate I could ask for! On Sunday afternoons, when I was working on homework, I would yell out Amber-LEE! What am I doing with my life? She was always there to remind me you’re a photographer, you’re a student, you’re going to be an amazing teacher. She just is the best person to be around and I’m so excited to be apart of Amberle and Josh’s wedding.

Josh handed over the keys (keyboard keys) to me when he left Transfer youth group and worship band. I went with him and some other members of theLink college ministry to Bolivia in 2007. He’s brilliant and creative and someone I never want to get in a debate with when it comes to music or literature. He will win and I know it.

They go perfect together! Hugos in downtown Fayetteville was their very first date. So it’s only appropriate we returned to shoot their engagement session there.

I would always have Amberle check my blogs before I posted. I hope she likes this one!

Have a great day!!!


Sarah & James Springfield, Missouri Engagement Session

Sarah & James Springfield, Missouri Engagement Session

I’m back with photos!!!

I’ve known Sarah since the ninth grade. She’s a doll! Anyone that meets her, can’t say a single bad word about her. I mean come on, she’s a kindergarten teacher. She came with me and my family to Hawaii and stood up with us when my mom got married. She drove 2 hours to surprise me one night in my dorm room freshman year. We’ve had tons of laughs and cries for the 10 years we’ve been friends.

James is one lucky man to get my best friend! He’s not too bad himself. I went to youth group with him in high school. I guess he can have her!

They live in Springfield, Missouri, and I went up to visit them and take their engagement pictures several weeks ago. They will be going to Jamaica to tie the knot June 16th!!!

I know you are going to fall in love with them after you see their lovely pictures!

Jennifer and Jacob’s Engagement Session at Battlefield State Park Prairie Grove, Arkansas

Jennifer and Jacob’s Engagement Session at Battlefield State Park Prairie Grove, Arkansas

Ok, I’m a little beyond excited to post these pictures. These two people mean the world to me. Jennifer has been my best friend for four years and we’ve done some pretty cool things together. We served in Transfer youth ministry together (that’s where we met) and have made some of my favorite memories. We’ve had some fun trips to Colorado, Dallas, Nashville, camping and other places. I know I always have a friend by my side for Harry Potter and Twilight nerdiness.  She’s an irreplaceable best friend.

Ever since I’ve known Jenn, she’s been with Jacob. It has been so cool to see these two people grow as a couple and into the people that God created them to be. Now they will become husband and wife May 26th, 2011! I couldn’t be more excited for them!

I love you friends and I’m so thankful for you!

Oh and blog readers…I love comments!

Have a great Thanksgiving!


Holly & Todd’s Fayetteville, Arkansas Engagement Session

Holly & Todd’s Fayetteville, Arkansas Engagement Session

So Holly and Todd are the best because they not only braved the rain once, but twice! The first time we met for their pictures and low and behold and it rains. So we shoot a few pictures and then decide just to reschedule. So we reschedule for the next week, and what does it do, it rains. Of course. Then we reschedule it for a few days later and it seems like its going to be clear skies. Nope. It pours. So we go with it! They were destined to have a rainy photo session. Don’t think for a second though that it was a bad thing to have it rain. It gave us beautiful pictures, and it was so much fun for all of us!
