Frisco, Texas Wedding Proposal Photography

Last week, I had the honor of documenting a beautiful wedding proposal on a hiking trail in Frisco, Texas. Michel pulled together a truly magical setting for popping the question, with twinkle lights, lanterns, a candlelit path, and romantic Disney movie references scattered throughout. He also arranged to have all of their closest friends and family waiting in the dark around the candlelit proposal site, all eagerly prepared to congratulate the happy couple. Andria seemed genuinely surprised and overjoyed by every heartfelt detail of Michel's proposal, and I love that I got to play a role in their special day!

Downtown Denton & Recycled Books Engagement Portraits: Caty & Will

Caty has been telling me for years that she would one day hire me to photograph her wedding. Mission accomplished! I'm so looking forward to capturing Caty & Will's wedding next year, especially after having so much fun with their engagement session in downtown Denton earlier this month. We wandered the storefronts and alleys around the historic downtown square on a quiet weekday morning, and wandered into Recycled Books (with advance permission) for some fun photos in one of this couple's favorite stores. I don't make it over to Denton for any occasion other than work very often, but next time I'm in the area and have any time to play, I'll definitely be visiting Recycled Books again and leaving with a big haul of new-to-me used books. It had been a while since I'd photographed downtown Denton, and it was nice to get back out there! There are so many great backdrops to work with. I'd love to work there more often.

Downtown McKinney Family Portraits: The Boltons

I love watching this family grow! I've been working with them a few times a year since their eldest turned 1. This was my first time to meet the newest addition, and I'm smitten. He's not camera-shy at all at 6-months-old, and was certainly more on board with the session than his two-year-old big brother! It may seem odd, but toddlers are actually my favorite age group to photograph. Their personalities are huge, and I love capturing that stage. It requires lots of running around in a crouched position and playing peekaboo. This little guy wasn't exactly won over by my charm, but I love the photos of him Not Having Any of This.

Extended Family Portraits in Plano: The Hoffmans

The Hoffmans have graced this blog many times in one way or another over the years. Allison's bridal portrait session was my very first. I've also captured Hoffman senior portraits, birthday parties, and family portraits. We've done one other big group family session, back in 2012. Their family has seen a new grandbaby, a marriage, engagements, and several high school graduations since then. Needless to say, the "kids" are no longer little! There are a few new faces since the last session as well, so the group has grown. I love doing big sessions like these. They can be crazy, but I enjoy the challenge. Allison is a costume designer, so I know I can always count on her family to have outfits that coordinate well. This session is definitely going in my folder of inspiration for clients who need a little help deciding what to wear.

Nisa's Austin College Bridal Portraits in Sherman, Texas

Nisa was a joy to work with! She planned her wedding from California, but we still managed to fit in a bridal portrait session on the campus of our shared alma mater. I worked toward my undergraduate degree at Austin College, though I ultimately transferred and finished elsewhere after switching degree programs from business toward art. Nevertheless, AC was always the school where I felt most at home. It felt like a homecoming to wander around campus with Nisa and her mother, and see how much looked exactly the same, and how much had changed! It was an incredibly hot Texas summer day, so we made use of as much air conditioned space as we could. Nisa holds her PhD in Inorganic Chemistry, so it made sense to start the session in the IDEA Center, Austin College's fancy new science building. I look forward to sharing Nisa's wedding -- the science theme continued there, with an experiment taking the place of a unity ceremony, and beakers and test tubes used throughout their decor. Nisa's a pretty awesome gal, if you haven't already figured that out.
