Your hair is a lot longer now and my hair is a lot shorter now (we really need some new photos) but I think we will look at each other like this until the day we die. 🥰 ⠀ Although it seems impossible, I am learning to love myself as much as you love me. I think that’s important. I love you, my sweet Valentine. 🖤🖤🖤
No, this photo was not taken in Europe! Can you believe it was taken in Tulsa, Oklahoma?? 🤯😍 ⠀ ⠀ I absolutely love destination weddings and traveling to Europe, it’s no secret. Among other things, I love European design and of course I love European architecture. But listen, guys. You can create a European aesthetic to your wedding without going over the pond. ✈️✈️✈️ EVEN IN OKLAHOMA!! It’s completely possible. Along with handpicked details and tasteful design to support you, you can fool your guests into thinking they’ve traveled across the world to see you wed. 🌍 ⠀ ⠀ Would you be interested in a guide to European style venues in Oklahoma and Texas? I’m thinking of concocting such a guide. Let me know in the comments! Do you like the European style?

I’m at an enneagram workshop all day today in Dallas and I’m so excited to dive into more self discovery! I know there is a lot of skepticism with the enneagram, and I totally resisted at first too. ⠀ ⠀ But the enneagram is a great tool for a higher self awareness and knowing how to interact with others in work and personal settings. I’m learning there’s a lot more to the enneagram, not just wings, but subtypes and it only helps me further understand my motivations, how I communicate, and learn how to utilize my strengths as a strong 8 🖤💪🏼⠀ ⠀ I’m so curious... what’s your enneagram number? Has it helped you at all?

Paris balconies in the fall. 🖤 I’m planning all the trips for this year, meeting with couples and planners, updating my website, creating custom proposals, timelines, and giving all the client gifts. 🍾⠀ ⠀ I’m so excited for all the opportunities to photograph some incredible people and some incredible places! Is this your year to get photographed? Don’t put it off because your life doesn’t look perfect right now. You ARE incredible and whatever stage in life you’re in right now deserves to be documented. I know I have done it for too long myself—but this year I will get professional photos of me and @tannerbentley ⠀ ⠀ I would love to make your photo dreams a reality this year! I still have several weekends open for weddings and shoots! Let’s make some magic ✨
Celebrating 2019 and heading into 2020 excited 🖤🎉🥂⠀ ⠀ While there were many difficult and challenging times during 2019, I have conquered, loved, learned, traveled, photographed, adventured and dreamed a lot this year. I’m grateful for both the hard times and the good. I am ready for the new year, the new decade! ⠀ ⠀ Thank you to everyone who made this year so incredible. My family and friends who have always supported me and my couples and clients who have trusted me with capturing some of their 2019 memories. ✨⠀these are some of my favorites! ⠀ Happy New Year! 🎊
Happy 25th Birthday to my favorite travel companion, my best friend, my love. 🖤🎉⠀ ⠀ You have made this year so much fun and I’m so lucky I get to live life with you. I know next year will be full of even more big memories, road trips, film photos, heavy suitcases, dance parties, and really good food. Thank you for always being up for an adventure with me! 🖤 I hope 25 is the best year yet.
