Been holding on to this one for a long while! Spring of 2019 was a crazy busy time for us and we worked with some of the most wonderful people so I’m so sad that I wasn’t able to share all of their gorgeous weddings, but today you at least will get a peek into Elissa and Jonathan’s simple spring wedding day! When you have a venue that’s nestled in the pecan trees of the…

Sometimes you meet some of the best people on the internet who become your friends that cheer you on and support your business. Melanie is one of those people. Being a photographer herself… she knows how to hype a girl up. She is sweet and kind and obviously beautiful because once you see her bridals… your jaw might drop. She tied the knot this past weekend and let me tell ya… Jonathan is a lucky…

One of my favorite parts of wedding photography and even family photography is ALBUMS! They are the perfect addition for telling the story of your big day or to create your family’s legacy. Look at me… being all cheesy and what not. Pregnancy hormones in full affect while writing this. 🙂 Although albums are beautiful and so fun to look at, the process can be intimidating! Choosing the perfect pictures for your wedding album is…

Welcome to the blog — home to all of the goodness I capture from both weddings and portraits. It’s the little things, I’m tellin’ ya.

MEET Maddie

We can all say that it’s been quite the year. We can also all say that none of us know what’s going to happen next at this point and Callie and Grayson can definitely concur. These two were set to be married this October, but since the world continues to be unpredictable… they decided to switch things up and get married sooner rather than later! Let me tell you that Callie’s sweet mama, Amy, got…

I held my breath a couple of weeks before this wedding. As COVID cases spiked in Texas, some states surrounding us were implementing travel bans and quarantining measures and I prayed daily that Wyoming would still let us in. Thankfully, everything worked out and we were able to hop on a plane and head to cooler weather to celebrate with Hailey + Gavyn! When we arrived on Thursday, we got to shoot some beautiful engagements…

Walking up to the bridal suite… I could hear a voice squealing “Baby bump, baby bump, baby bump” through the door!! That was how Chandler greeted me! Her bridesmaids shared a collective “awwww” and I don’t think I’ve ever felt more loved!! Seriously! We met Chandler and Sam at one of our local coffee shops last winter to discuss their wedding day so they were one of the first couples who knew we were pregnant!…

On a rare breezy and actually kind of cool summer day in Texas, Madi and Austin tied the knot! These two couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend for their wedding to take place. It almost felt like the last few months haven’t even happened! Corona who? When Cody and I arrived in the afternoon the whole venue was filled with their family and friends and everyone was well… calm and collected. I immediately…

The last couple of months have left my little business in state of what I like to call “Corona Chaos” – catchy right? Shuffling around weddings and session dates has been quite the wild ride. I mean there’s only so many Saturdays in a year and my poor brides have been fighting hard to get married! Colby + Kali’s wedding was rescheduled to a day we had already previously booked with another sweet couple who…


"Maddie’s ability to capture the beauty and innocence of love and life is truly a God-given talent. She is always fun and easy going even when dealing with stressed out parents and wild toddlers. Every time we’ve gotten our pictures back there’s moments she has captured that I never even saw."

"Her work is priceless - you will be blessed by her talents!"

Sierra and Hunter

Choosing Maddie for our wedding pictures was hands down the BEST decision! She is not only AMAZING at what she does, but you can tell through her work that is her passion! She is a joy to work with and her energy makes everyone excited about taking pictures (even my stubborn honey had a great time)!

"We had a blast during our time with her, which made it easy for her to capture US!"

MADDIE and Zachary

"She guides the shoot and makes it about whoever the subject is with such comfort and ease. I never doubted her and we have beautiful pictures to prove it!! I truly enjoyed our shoot and I hope we have more in the future."

"Maddie has a wonderful personality!"
