Tyffanie and Wade's Seattle Wedding Story

Hey everybody!

While I was off gallivanting and shooting in Mexico, our other team (Jessica and Lauren) was in Seattle for Tyffanie and Wade's wedding.  It looked really fun, and the location was SUPER dreamy!

Boys and their Seattle Socks (and tattoos)...

Seriously... this view.

Our darling bride...

Look closely... Tyffanie is getting a little choked up as she heads down the aisle. I love that!

We're going to have more from this wedding tomorrow! Come on back!

Talk to you soon,

Ellie Turns TEN!

Hey everybody!

My little baby turns 10 years old today.
Double digits.
How is this possible?

We've started the shaving/nairing stage of life, and I tell you what... I am NOT ready for it! Ellie is still so sweet, nurturing, thoughtless, loves to cuddle and snuggle, and thinks I'm the best guy in the world (which is mostly true...haha). For so long I've clung on to her sweet temperament, affection, and innocence. Now that she's been around for a decade, I wonder how much longer I can count on snuggle nights in front of a movie screen, cooking dinner together in the kitchen, and photo shoots any time I want.

Hopefully, for a long long time.

Sarah and Eric's Mexico Anniversary Portraits

Hey everybody!

A long long time ago, I received an email from Sarah about a portrait session, but we could never align our schedules. Then one day, I received an email from her that went a little something like this:
I just saw from Mere's instagram that you're at Excellence Playa Mujeres... we're going to arrive there on Saturday and would love for you to photograph Eric and me!
Shooting weddings or portrait sessions at Excellence is totally a dream, so of course we were immediately on board! Here are some of our favorites from the session...

{if you're heading to to Mexico and are looking for a portrait session at Excellence Playa Mujeres, you should totally hit us up!}

Nickie and Josh's Excellence Playa Mujeres Wedding Portraits

Hey everybody!

Does it get better than wedding portraits at Excellence Playa Mujeres? I think not! Not only do we have a great view and great light, ALWAYS, but we have this adorable couple who are so in love!

Nickie is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!! And she's just darling-sweet, and a teacher (so you know she has the patience of a saint!).

Here's my other favorite thing about photographing weddings at Excellence Playa Mujeres, we have this whole other location to shoot portraits, so not ALL the portraits are just beach portraits (not that there's anything wrong with THAT!). :)

Probably my favorite little series was when we got in close and it was just these two loving on each other.

Nickie and Josh, y'all are a DREAM! I can't wait to see y'all again (ahem... maybe we head back for your anniversary every 4th of July?  Haha!) XOXO!

Nickie and Josh's Mexico Wedding Story

Hey everybody!

Mere and I were so happy to be back in Mexico to photograph Josh and Nickie's Excellence Playa Mujeres wedding. Nickie and Josh are truly, truly a sincere and caring couple (which you'll easily see below), so I wanted their wedding to be perfect!  To me, it was a perfect day... though, we had to move the wedding 30 minutes later due to a little weather - it actually made the temperature amazing! As if I didn't love weddings at Excellence Playa Mujeres enough, I really loved seeing how the staff at EPM kick in to gear to make the wedding special (they even re-dried and covered all the guests' seats!

Anyway, look at some of my favorite moments from Nickie and Josh's beach wedding!  Here is our GORGEOUS bride putting the finishing touches on before she set out for the beach.

One of my favorite parts of shooting weddings at Excellence Playa Mujeres is that the lighting is always amazing because of the way the resort it laid out.  It suits our love for backlight perfectly!
Here comes the bride!

LOVE Josh's look here.  He's BEAMING!

The first kiss! (sorry about the videographer - he wasn't interested in planning ahead... I think his English wasn't so good???)  Love this scene nonetheless!

And here, look at how Nickie is looking at Josh.  SUCH a perfect moment!  (and how cool that the palm trees are chillin' in the background!)

More fun emotion (and cool light) during the couple's cake cutting...

Nickie and Josh's first dance was 50% adorable and 50% endearing.

I had to end on this really sweet moment. Ahhh! My heart explodes for this!

Y'all... I can't wait to show you their beach portraits tomorrow!  Get ready!

Katie's Dallas Bridal Portraits

Hey everybody!

We're branching out stylistically today - in a good way! We photographed Katie's bridals on a rainy night in Dallas at the Aloft Hotel, and though it's not our typical style, I LOVE the way the images came out! Katie is of course drop dead gorgeous, so it probably didn't matter where we shot them... they were going to be beautiful!

Wedding Portraits on a Boat of Jennifer and Ryan

Hey everybody!

We had so much fun at Jennifer and Ryan's Joplin wedding, and they've become such good friends over the past couple years, that we talked them into putting on their wedding attire and doing a portrait session on their boat (not that it took much convincing for either of them... haha!).

So have a look at a few of my favorite boat portraits. I love the way they turned out!

Talk to you soon,
