    Hey everybody!

    One of my favorite NWA families keep growing!  Afton and Ryan now have TWO sweet boys.  And by "sweet" I mean SWEET!  I'd seriously step in and babysit any day!  We found (and played with) some gorgeous fall leaves and snuggled up for some sweet pictures.  A few of my favorites are below!

    Hey everybody!

    Having a wedding in November definitely has a bunch of advantages, and they all have to do with color! If it's not gorgeous fall leaves, it's the Christmas lights!  I got to use them for some portraits of Morgan and Craig on their wedding day/night. I love them so much!

    Hey everybody!

    El Dorado has grown on me! I've only been to this quaint Arkansas town one other town and while I loved the couple and wedding I didn't get to explore because of the weather. However, for Morgan and Craig's wedding, the weather was literally perfect. A perfect Fall day is my favorite time to shoot. Morgan and Craig had a beautiful wedding with beautiful details, as you'll see below.





    This flower girl omg.
    My brother Steven, who 2nd shoots for me, rocked the balcony shots for this. I love the birds eye view of this big wedding party.


    They came to get down!

    I thought this would be the perfect image to end this perfect day. Congratulations Morgan and Craig!

    Hey everybody!

    I haven't posted a Benny Booth blog in awhile, and Morgan's wedding was so fun that I thought it would be the perfect reminder of how great this can be for a bride's wedding guests. Look at the silliness! If you're a Benny Bride and want to add a Benny Booth to your package, let me know so I can get it reserved. This comes with the full resolution files so your guests can print them as large as they want!

    Hey everybody!

    Morgan has classic beauty that radiates even brighter because of her inner beauty. Her love for the Lord is my favorite thing about her, and I'm so happy she has found a man who loves Him as much as she does. I couldn't be more excited to see them grow even closer over the coming years.

    Hey everybody!

    Over the Thanksgiving Holiday I got to spend a lot of time with my brother an this family in Joplin, MO. He has an incredible family and I always enjoy my time there being Uncle Dale. This time, I brought my camera and shot a few pictures of the family for their Christmas card. My favorite images are below...

    Hey everybody!

    I recently had a mini-modeling session with Shannon in Los Angeles. She wanted a specific black and white look that I think we grabbed pretty perfectly.  Shannon was a total sweetheart and look forward to shooting her again in the future!

    Hey everybody!

    Morgan and Jon (I shot their wedding at Woodland Hills Country Club earlier this year) recent met up with me and brought their friends for some fun family pictures in Sherman Oaks. We did a great little family portrait session and Carissa and Calvin surprised Morgan and Jon at the end of the session with a formal proposal to have the newlyweds be the Godparents of their baby girl. So sweet! I was honored to be able to capture the moment and shoot the family portraits. If you're in the LA area and would like to set up a portrait session, I've got trips planned to the area just about every month, and would happily add you to the schedule calendar!

    Hey everybody!
    I'm in Lake Village today photographing the wedding of Mary Ashleigh and Zac which means I get to show off her gorgeous bridal portraits we took at the Governor's Mansion in Little Rock. Yay! She's such a classically stunning bride, don't you agree?

    Hey everybody!

    Andrea Hunt and I recently teamed up again for another fashion photo shoot. This time we did some in her fitness and yoga fashion... it was a first for me but I enjoyed it! We again kept with her instagram aesthetic - my new specialty, haha! We shot these around West Hollywood / Beverly which is such a cool area of L.A. Here are some favorites...

  • 12/14/16--19:16: How I Shot It: Photo Trick


  • Hey everybody!

    I'm about to unveil a killer wedding in Lake Village for y'all, but I thought I'd show you a little secret (behind the scenes shot by my 2nd shooter/brother) to how I got the final shot below. Using the Christmas lights, I pulled the end right up to my lens to create some interesting light and framed the bokeh lights around my scenery subject. So fun! Hopefully I'll get to share more photography tips with you soon! (Oh, and this works with any camera!)

    Hey everybody!

    It's the MOOOOOOST WONNNNNDERFULLLL TIIIIIIME of the YEEEEEAAAAARRR!  This Christmas season is so special, and Mary Ashleigh and Zac are going to remember it forever because they used it to enter into marriage.  They had the most wonderful winter wedding details and my brother and I did our best to capture it beautifully and creatively. Here are some of my favorite wedding details...

    Hey everybody!

    Not gonna lie... imagining the sun setting before getting to shoot gorgeous wedding portraits of Mary Ashleigh and Zac give me a little anxiety. I love getting gorgeous couple portraits the bride and groom will treasure forever, and lighting is my best friend for those. However, I found lighting in all the fun Christmas lights hanging from trees and covering arched doorways. I love the romantic feel of these wedding portraits... I hope you do too!

    Hey everybody!

    It's time for a MEGA post because I have to start nominating the Benny Awards (YESSS!).  Steven and I (my brother and 2nd shooter) split up for most of the day to shoot Mary Ashleigh and Zac's wedding day - he stayed with the boys who started the day on the shooting range, and I stayed with the girls who enjoyed champagne cocktails and a gorgeous brunch over makeup and hair appointments.

    You've seen Mary Ashleigh's gorgeous winter wedding details and portraits (if you haven't, scroll down the previous days' posts for some wonderful winter wedding inspiration), and today we get to re-live their beautiful wedding filled with sweet moments.

    These girls in their robes are just so beautiful...



    And of course our macho men, guns in hand...


    I feel like this is my signature self-portrait, haha!

    I love this moment where Mary Ashleigh's dad first sees his gorgeous daughter in that stunning dress.

    Haha... I little behind the scenes shot of yours truly snagging the getaway shot.

    One of my favorite moments from the reception was when the flower girl serenaded the huge crowd with Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.  So sweet.  She came up to me afterward and asked if I had seen her up there. I replied, "yeah! you were really great" and then she said, "thanks... I don't know if you could tell, but I was FREAKING OUT on the inside." Awwwww!

    Hey everybody!

    I've got a bonus post to share form Mary Ashleigh and Zac's wedding weekend in Lake Village. MA asked if I could come shoot her rehearsal dinner and bring the Benny Booth (my fun take on the photo booth) and it was a total hit at the party.  I got there about an hour early (because I'm a freak like that) and no one was there yet so I shot some details of the rehearsal dinner room.  It was so gorgeous. Also... side note... completely obsessed with the leather bags given as groomsmen gifts. OMG.  Want one. Bad.
