I had the absolute pleasure to photograph the marriage of a woman near and dear to my heart. If you’ve been following my blog, you probably saw the Engagement Shoot of Courtney and Kyle, where I go on to explain our days of Sim Farm in the 90’s and other middle schooler escapades. We met at a Mr. Gatti’s in Abilene, Texas with our parents who were good friends. Geezus, I never thought I would be photographing her beautiful wedding with her beautiful family in Montgomery Texas more than fifteen years later. I would have made her give me all the tickets she won on the …

As my site will allude to, as well as my profession, I love photography and eclectic beautiful things. I’ve been spending some deep headspace internalizing the idea of what it means to be free and I’ve decided to collaborate a #freedom Instagram meetup with three beautiful minds, Jessica (model, shown below – @jbwd), Ryan Barker (@crcbarker) and Edi (@edicaves). I have ordered colored smoke flares, red, white and blue, that we will hold in our hands and walk along the beach with. I’m going to do a freedom themed photoshoot with anyone who shows up. It is my hope that other creatives in the worlds of photography, Instagram and video will join …

A Dominican Republic Wedding

December 1, 2014

For the first time in a very long time, I feel like there aren’t enough photos in the world to depict the beauty of this place I was recently in to photograph the Tobaben Wedding. Awestruck around every corner, I couldn’t get enough of all the details around me.

Brooke and I met some time back when she had seen photos of a bridal shoot I’d done for a friend of hers and pulled me in to do a shoot with a dog that she and Travis had had for a long time, Babe. Babe had, at the time, recently been diagnosed with kidney failure and wasn’t expected …

Chris, my good friend who is a beautiful mind in graphic design for the Houston Astros called me up a couple of months ago. I had been lucky enough to shoot for him before and he said he had a new project that he could use me for.

As always with this cat, like when I shot his MLC Conference, I said I was down before he even told me what the project was. He explained that they would need a series of lifestyle photographs for a line of baseball caps that the Astros, New Era and Bun B were collaborating on together to sell in Academy stores. He knows …
