The Mode Wedding | Diamond H3 Ranch | Weatherford, Tx

Let’s start from the beginning here, Shana contacted me early this summer for her wedding photography. She was sweet and asked a lot of questions, which was fine because it’s a once in a lifetime day. You want it to be perfect and I want to do everything I can to help with that. I want to  make sure you feel like you’re making the best decision when it comes to your wedding photography. After a few emails back and forth, we were set! All booked for October 15, 2016 for Shana and Cameron, the soon to be Mr. and Mrs Mode.

The engagement session was perfect. Bright and early on a Sunday morning in July. Aren’t they adorable?

Before we all knew it, it was the big day. The weather was beautiful, just a little windy but nothing could ruin this for these two love birds. The wedding venue was to die for. A beautiful rustic location in Weatherford called the Diamond H3 Ranch set on top of an amazing hilltop with a view to match. Shana got ready with all of her ladies upstairs and Cameron was downstairs with the fellas.

The wedding went off without a hitch. The bride smiling and laughing all the way down the isle. The ceremony was short and sweet and then it was off to party! Well…first we had to get some epic sunset shots because who could resist that view and that sky. It was a tight schedule but those photos are so important and always magical. Finally…the reception which was fantastic! Everyone there was so full of joy for this genuine and loving couple. I was so happy to be a part of it that I was actually sad to say goodbye at the end of the long day.

I wish the new Mode family a wonderful and happy life together. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it!

P.S. – Look who it is!

Baby Martinez | Maternity Session | Dallas, Tx

Okay I want to confess something. This never happens, I swear, but I was running late to this session. Forgetting every memory card I own, I had to haul butt to the closest CVS to pick one up. Luckily the had some! Overpriced but my saving grace! Let me tell you, my checklist is on point just because of this day. Haha!

This was my first time meeting Madeline and her adorable baby bump. She was a sweet heart of course. Just like her mama, Patti, who I also had the pleasure of meeting at this session. Maddy was a beauty like no other. A mix between Kylie Jenner and Rachel Weisz, she was a dream to shoot. Every little pose and movement, perfection. Her round belly, carrying baby boy Mateo, was like an accessory she was always meant to have. Of course, we had to take some photos of her in overalls. She said they were basically her entire wardrobe during her pregnancy. When she talked about being a mother and her son, you could see the overwhelming love and maternal instinct that was so natural to her. This maternity session is probably my absolute favorite to date. There’s something about a beautiful pregnant woman in a lace dress and the perfect creek setting.

Here are some of my favorites from that day…

Mateo was born on August 1st and is loved unconditionally by his amazing mommy and family. Congratulations Madeline!
