Marcus + Bekah Engaged

It all started with a bike ride over the dam at joe pool lake, romance that is. Marcus asked Bekah to take a ride with him and she's never left his side since. These two are over the top in love and it's contagious!! This past November Marcus asked Bekah to take a bike ride again... but this time outlined in chalk were the surprise words "will you marry me?" How could she say no? 

We had a blast hanging out with Marcus and Bekah last week in Ft. Worth, and we can't wait until their July wedding!

gosh Bekah, you're stunning!

I told you... it was contagious! kisses and giggles all afternoon!

Snead Family

I met the Snead family back in August, both Katelyn and Joel were in Brittni & McCauley's wedding. So, naturally I was excited when Katelyn contacted me last fall about family photos! I knew that they would be a blast to work with and be up for anything. Who doesn't love a family shoot in Deep Ellum?

Thanks to Mike, Karen, Joel, and Katelyn for a fun Saturday morning filled with laughs!

Meet Katelyn, Karen, Mike, and Joel!


Gotta love parents that are still in love!!!

Mexico Part I: 5th Avenue

Finally... finally I'm back to blogging after a few crazy weeks. It all started off on Monday, March 2nd when "the recession" really hit home. I went in to work like any normal Monday and immediately realized something was wrong. Things had been tense around the office -- I'm sure many of you have felt this in your work place as well -- but I had remained optimistic. This morning something was strangely different. Around 9:30 I was informed that it was "black Monday." It was my last day at Korn/Ferry. It was a bittersweet day, I liked my job, my friends, even my boss... but as you know photography is my passion! So, it's official... I'm a full time photographer!!

We started off my new adventure with a week long trip to Mexico. My Mom, Dad, Beto and I had planned this trip during the holidays and it was the perfect time to getaway! We enjoyed 7 nights at Barcelo, an all inclusive resort. The weather was perfect except one rainy day, and the time spent with family will be cherished for years to come. I am so thankful for our week away... our week together!!

For blog part I of our trip I thought I would share a few shots from our trip to 5th Avenue in Playa. Enjoy!

Yum! Who doesn't love a little fresh fruit??

It's a tough decision, but someone had to make it...

Mango and Coconut, dang good, did not disappoint!

Haha, I love this shot! Beto hasn't owned a pair of sunglasses since he was like 13 or something... He finally found a pair that fit! Gotta love some purple Prada's. Notice all of us in the shot? :)

I love all the color!

No explanation needed!!

Resort food isn't exactly the real deal we crave... so we HAD to stop and get tacos. mmmm... pastor, my fav!!

Pretty sure I need to blow this up and hang it in my office! I love the next series using this wall!!

Adding to the collection!

I want to go back!!

Check out facebook for more shots on 5th Aveune!!
