Hi! Thanks for stopping by to check out my work!
A little about me……
Professionally :: Before I began shooting weddings full time, I worked in the accounting field for 8 years. I was pulling double duty as a full time office manager and shooting whenever I could. I started specializing in weddings in 2006. I worked with some amazing photographers in the Dallas area who’s work I admire and respect. Learning from some of the best wedding photographers in the Dallas area helped pave the way for where I am today. We had our own wedding in 2007 and shortly after, we were expecting our son, Sam. In 2008, Sam made his debut into the world and we have been a party of 3 since then. My first full year as a full-time wedding photographer was 2009. I am proud to say by the end of that year, I was nationally published in Southern Weddings Magazine. By the end of 2010 I had 3 magazine covers, a fashion editorial in Texas Wedding Guide, and many wonderful couples to call friends. I also run a wedding resource with one of my past brides, Tamra. We started Groom Sold Separately at the end of 2009 and have been excited to watch it grow. This resource serves as a daily blog, a wedding professional guide, and inspiration for weddings. Be sure to check it out.
Personally :: I grew up in Dallas watching my Grandmother paint wonderful portraits of families. As a little girl I was fascinated with her work and I regularly would sneak into her back room where she painted and I sat in amazement of her skill. All the easels, brushes, and portraits lying about only added excitement and intrigue to what she did. It was then that I knew I would follow in her foot steps and be an artist. I wound up taking drawing and painting classes in college to advance my own skills. Then, I took a photography course and it all changed. Once I discovered you could paint with light, it was all over, I wanted to be photographer! The way that one can manipulate their art with the proper photographic techniques had me hooked from the beginning. Photography had me at “hello”. My dear and wonderful husband Jon encouraged and pushed to me to follow my passion for the lens. As a result I get to do what I love every day! It continues to be more and more rewarding and satisfying with every press of the shutter. It only makes it more special that I get to enjoy my passion for photography with all of you!
