Dallas Wedding PhotographersHello from California! These days, we’re in California for a week (or a month!) and then back to Texas for another week (or another month!).

I just want to take a moment to acknowledge, and thank, all of my clients who’ve helped me launch my business. When I first started shooting weddings in 2012, I never dreamed of being where I am today. So much has happened, so quickly.

And it’s because of you — all of you — who’ve put your trust in me. Today, I’m thankful and excited to actually be able to say that my 2015 calendar is already filling up. I never dreamed in 2012 that I could look into the future and feel a sense of excitement and certainty.

To all of you who’ve worked with me in the past, and to all of you who will work with me in the future: Thank you for sharing your lives with me.

Wedding Flowers Ideas

Yesterday, I went to my UPS mail box. And I received my first ever gift from a client! She sent me a box of chocolates from Hawaii!! And inside the envelope were two cards, each separately sealed. One for Justin. One for me. I nearly cried.

It’s why I take weeks of practice and preparation before each wedding I shoot. It’s why I get up at 5:00 am and start replying to client emails. I do all this because I want to give my clients the best memories I am capable of.

And yesterday, when I opened the box of chocolates, my heart melted (well, so did the chocolate — it’s only like a 100 million degrees hot in Texas right now). But I knew, with that box of chocolates, that my bride from last March was as thankful for me as I am for her. And that is what keeps me going. Keeps me practicing. Keeps me on my toes to keep giving my life for this job.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Justin and I are headed down to the Santa Monica Pier. Then?! Back to the airport. I get to document a wonderful friend’s wedding this next week.

Bon Week-end!  xo
