Old News…

Hi Everyone! This is now my “old blog.”
Yes, things just keep getting better and better around here. I know have a new website and blog in one!! So hit the main website button or head on over to

Alli & Jason’s Wedding Day

Alli and Jason are married!! The day began at The Padre Hotel where the stage was set for some pre-ceremony portraits and of course the first look between the bride and groom. This time, we opted to surprise Jason and not let him know the first look was officially happening. So, while the oh-so-handsome groom posed for some portraits, Alli sneaked to the top of the stairs where her husband-to-be would see her for the first time in her wedding gown. Alli looked stunning!

The day then continued at The Bayou for ceremony and reception. This was my first time at the Bayou as a photographer and I gotta say, I really loved it. The colors created by the trees and the deep blue ceiling really replicate the night sky. The mother of the bride made a beautiful cake, and the tables were decorated with wine themed decor because “like good wine, love too grows stronger as it grows older.” During the ceremony, even a few non-traditional situations could not take the attention from this lovely couple. When you see the look on their faces when they look at each other…. oh… it just melts my heart.  I know this may sound cheesy but it really was a beautiful day full of friends, laughter and love. Congratulations Alli and Jason!! Thank you for asking me to capture these beautiful memories for you.

The Mathews

Jessica and Tony will welcome baby Whitley this January. How do you celebrate and document the beautiful arrival of your first baby? With a picnic of course! Complete with apple cider and cupcakes from Frosting Inc. Jessica and Tony are just so adorable and sweet! With parents like this, I can’t wait to meet the little one. Oh and don’t worry, she will be making another appearance here on the blog as soon as she arrives!

The Mendiburu Family

You may recognize a few of these faces from a recent wedding I posted in October. I was very honored to be asked back into their home, this time to capture their beautiful family. My favorite things about this session are the expressions and the laughter. I’m not sure what else to say about this adorable family that the pictures cannot say for themselves.

November 12, 2010 - 10:54 am Jessica Frey - These are great! What a joyfull family and you've captured their love for one another really well!

November 12, 2010 - 12:45 pm gma - What a beautiful family. Photo's are wonderful.

Love & After…

For these images, I set out on a collaborative journey with a very special person in front of my camera. It was a very unique session and a very special opportunity for me to push my creativity. We all want love to be a constant in our lives. Yet sometimes love changes, and we are forced to take steps into territory we never imagined finding ourselves. Through out the day we had three words in our head, Freedom, Healing, and Beauty…This is what we came up with…

Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it. — Tori Amos

The beginning of the journey.
The first step is always the hardest…
to be continued…
