Kellie + Craig | Hot Springs Arkansas Proposal Photographer

On March 17, 2017 I had the honor of photographing the most stunning proposal I have ever witnessed. There were thousands of flowers, dozens of candles, and live music playing on a lake terrace for this perfect moment!  Kellie was absolutely surprised! Her fiancee, Craig, lives in Boston and she thought was simply coming home from a day of fun with her sweet kids. Little did she know what was waiting for her! Great job to all the fantastic vendors who came together in just a few days to pull this off! 
Kellie and Craig, congratulations to all four of you! I hope this beautiful beginning is just that, a beautiful beginning to lifelong adventures together!

Kevin + Ang | Hot Springs Wedding Proposal

I received Kevin's initial inquiry about photographing his proposal while I was still in Romania this summer. I was intrigued from the beginning, and the more that I heard about their story, the more excited I was to meet them in person and watch the sweet event unfold! Funny story, I am from the same suburb of Dallas that they are! They both love the outdoors so Kevin opted to propose at the Mountain Tower overlook area--on a beautiful August afternoon that was surprisingly not blazing hot! Kevin had mailed me a rustic piece of reclaimed wood that was special to the two of them and had prepped it with a message to Ang. My job was to plant it on the overlook rock and then camp out and wait for them. Everything went without a hitch, and this is where they not having met me came in handy! Talk about being incognito in broad daylight! Ang and most of her family were there with Kevin. They walked up to the area and he led her down the rock. The rest is history! She was absolutely shocked that he would propose somewhere in a state other than Texas, and the ring was an obvious success!

Congratulations, Ang and Kevin! It was an absolute honor to capture these moments for you both! I know your wedding is going to be amazing! God's blessings on your new life together!  

Amy + Tristan | Hot Springs Wedding Photographer

The majority of the time my wedding inquiries are from the bride to be, however this wedding was unique from the start as I was initially contacted by Amy's mom, Christine. I kept in contact with Christine and later Amy, and immediately fell in love with the entire family when we met in person about 3 weeks before the wedding! They are originally from the great state of Texas (which instantly gave us something in common), and were planning an intimate destination wedding at the lovely Fordyce Ricks Estate in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Amy is a natural beauty with a boisterous smile and tons of personality wrapped up in such a cute petite frame! Tristan is about a foot taller than his bride, but they compliment each other as well in personality as they do in height. The weather was absolutely perfect for their outdoor ceremony and their day was complete with one of the sweetest Father/Daughter dances ever. Amy later told me that it was the first time she had ever seen her Dad cry, and I'm pretty sure there wasn't a dry eye during their dance! It was absolutely precious. Amy and Tristan, thanks so much for trusting me with your day and allowing me to witness and archive it for you! You guys make such an amazing pair, best wishes to your new life together! 

Huge thank you to my second shooter, Samantha Pascoe, who captured several of the candid shots featured above!
