Engagement Photographer Dallas

Ryan grabbed her waist and pulled her in close. . .

He whispered words into his new bride’s ear, words that were only meant for her to hear - he then sealed them with a kiss before gliding back onto the dance floor. Jackie stood there beaming as the room melted away around her... she took a deep breath in, as tears of joy built up in her eyes, and whispered quietly to herself: “...I can’t believe he’s mine.

My journey into photography began as a young girl after my family's first big trip. We came home from this incredible adventure with absolutely nothing to show for it. I was gutted - and so quickly took it upon myself to become the "family photographer".

Fast forward and I have been lucky enough to be a Dallas engagement photographer, documenting countless families, for just under a decade now.

There are a handful of things to consider when planning for your Dallas engagement photography. My goal is to take as much stress off your plate as I can. So, aside from Step 2, we will also spend time diving into all things photography prep as well. I'll help you narrow down a location, decide on the best time of day, give you advice on outfit selections and cover all the important details in advance so that, come your session, you can be fully present and just enjoy yourself!

Strategically Plan For Less Stress + Peace Of Mind

In order to best capture you + your relationship and document your love story authentically, it is so important that you first feel seen and understood! So, we'll spend time diving into who you are, what you love about each other, what you value most - and much more. This way, come your engagement session, you can arrive feeling fully confident that your photographer is capturing you and your love as authentically as possible.

Dive Deep Into Your Unique Story, Relationship + Values

The very first step is to connect so that I can learn more about you and your vision for your engagement session. I also want to make sure we're vibing! It's so important that you feel comfortable with and connected to your photographer! At the end of the day, that is going to make a huge difference in how genuine and authentic your images will look and feel.

Connect + Understand Your Specific Vision

There are so many ways to use your engagement images! Use your favorite(s) on your Save the Dates! Print out stunning artwork to display around your reception - and your home! Create a gorgeous book to display at your wedding reception for your guests to sign. Or custom create an engagement album to preserve and treasure your memories for a lifetime. Whichever you choose, let me help you preserve your story in the most beautiful way.
Because, yours is a love story worth preserving.

Print, Share + Preserve Your Memories

By this point, you have done everything you could to plan + prepare. Now, your only job left is to simply show up and have fun! My job is to guide you through the session. I'll be right there prompting and directing you through the entire session! No uncomfortable silences or awkward deer-in-headlight-stares here. Just a fun night out with the love of your life!
