Delilah2

These two were awesome! Delilah and I have been friends since middle school and I’ve known Paul since high school, so naturally, there was zero pressure on this shoot. Due in about a month, Delilah looked stunning and I think a blind person could tell how excited Paul was to be a dad soon. Here are some favorites from our shoot in Adriatica in McKinney, Texas.

I had the great pleasure of covering my good friend Kristin’s wedding in Colorado. I’ve know Kristin since early high school, and when she asked me to come to Colorado to shoot her wedding, I didn’t hesitate one bit to be there for her big day. I had spoken with Kristin and her now husband, Alan, several times over the phone regarding what they wanted for their images. They had a few very special people in attendance, so they wanted …
