We had such an amazing time photographing Bill and Nicole’s Fall wedding here in Eureka Springs, AR. They were married at the always stunning Thorncrown Chapel and had a reception following at the Basin Park Hotel. We LOVED everything about this wedding from Nicole’s GORGEOUS dress, to the blind-folded prayer before the ceremony, to the great band, to the lovely decor at the reception. Here are a few of our favorite portraits from their special day!! Enjoy!
A few years back, we had the privilege of shooting Michelle’s sister’s wedding in Altus, AR. So, of course, when Michelle contacted me about shooting her wedding this winter, we were SUPER excited!! Chris and Michelle live in Dallas, so naturally, the bridal session and wedding were held there as well.
We ended up shooting this beautiful session with Michelle at the end of December at the Dallas Arboretum. It was a chilly 40 something degrees outside, but Michelle was a trooper! We had so much fun wandering the grounds getting amazing shots of Michelle, who is absolutely STUNNING in every way. We are so honored she and Chris chose us to capture these images as well as their special day. We love our clients!
Here are a few of our favorites from our Dallas bridal session with Michelle. Enjoy!!
Is there really anyone on the planet who doesn’t love Garvan Gardens?? After Tom and Tingting’s wedding – the answer is probably not! They had family from both sides of the globe come to Hot Springs’ Garvan Woodland Gardens for their beautiful wedding. Afterwards, there was an elegant reception in the ballroom of the Arlington Hotel. I have to say, Dad and I sincerely enjoyed this entire day. Tom and Tingting were fun and easy to work with, even in the crazy August heat, and we loved meeting and photographing their wonderful families. We are so blessed to have such great clients!

I’m sure everyone already knows this, but Blue Springs Heritage Center in Eureka Springs, AR holds a special place in my heart. I was married to the love of my life there 2 1/2 years ago! So, of course, I was thrilled when Ross and Gloria hired us to photograph their elopement there towards the end of Summer. It was an early morning wedding, and the weather was completely perfect. I loved the bright Summer colors and how they made Gloria’s sweet red dress pop in all of the portraits. The three of us had such a fun morning roaming the gardens. Beautiful couple + perfect Summer day = happy wedding photographer.
Here are some of my favorites from their big day – enjoy!!
Matthew and Alyssa were such a sweet couple. They had the perfect intimate Summer wedding in Eureka Springs, AR. Their ceremony was at the gorgeous Thorncrown Chapel, and they had a reception following at the Sky Ridge Pavilion.
I have to say, when I saw Alyssa’s dress, I was totally floored! I loved the dress and cathedral veil combo – so so gorgeous. Matthew and Alyssa also had some super cool cakes featuring fairy-tales and books. They had such a fun style!

I was actually lucky enough to meet Gizelle long before her wedding and chat with her about what she was envisioning for her big day. We had a great time getting to know each other over coffee, so I was totally thrilled when she booked us for her wedding. Once it arrived, it was a gorgeous Spring day with plenty of sunshine and a lot of wonderful family and friends who traveled thousands of miles to see Brendan and Gizelle marry. The wedding and the following reception were both held at St. Anthony’s on the Creek in Lowell, AR. This is such a beautiful venue!! We were excited to be able to shoot there when everything was in full bloom! And of course, Brendan and Gizelle were such a sweet couple to work with. We are just so blessed to have such great clients. Enjoy!

I don’t even know where to begin with Sean and Lexy – they are SO FUN! They came down to Eureka Springs last Fall for their engagement session and we had a blast running around half the county taking portraits. We knew then that we were going to love shooting their wedding in the Spring. When it came time, the weather was gorgeous, Sean and Lexy looked amazing, and the day went perfectly. They had their ceremony at Thorncrown Chapel and a reception following at the Inn of the Ozarks. Enjoy!!
We had the privilege of shooting Spencer and Amanda’s wedding on a blazing hot Spring day in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. It was sunny and gorgeous and they were so much fun to work with! Having never been to Walnut Ridge before, we were more than pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the chapel at William’s Baptist College was. The receptions was held afterwards at the First Baptist Church nearby, and it was gorgeous as well! We especially loved all of the fun decor they chose for the reception – lots of little birds, crystal white birdhouses, and bright blue accents.
First, let me just say that I absolutely LOVE this couple. I was introduced to Sammie about 3 years ago by our company’s Children’s/Family photographer, Nicona Jones. We all went out to dinner, where I also met Sammie’s boyfriend at the time – Wesley. They were such a fun couple! Not long after, Sammie asked me to do a portrait session for her. She ended up loving those portraits, and later hired me to do a couple’s session for her and Wesley. Fast forward a few years, and I had the privilege of shooting their engagement session, Sammie’s maternity session, AND FINALLY they’re BEAUTIFUL wedding. I have to say, I love building relationships like this one with my clients. Dad and I continue to be blessed with lifelong clients who include us in all of the big events of their lives. They trust us wholeheartedly to capture all of the wonderful moments and phases they want to remember and be remembered for. And, of course, we are always honored to do so.
Now, on to the wedding! Wesley and Sammie were married and held their reception at The Garden Room in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I have to say, I love this venue. The people there are polite and gracious, and the atmosphere is that of a beautiful vintage/rustic backyard wedding (in a super GORGEOUS backyard ;). It was a warm late Spring day and it was sunny and perfect. Can’t get much better than that!
First off, let me say that Dan and Sara are SUCH a great couple! We met them last November at the Iron Horse Coffee Company in Rogers (LOVE that place btw!). After chatting and laughing for at least an hour, we knew that we were going to have a blast shooting their wedding. Of course, we had no idea that this year Spring was going to hide out and wait for Summer! lol They planned their gorgeous outdoor wedding for May 4th, which is guaranteed to be one of the most beautiful weekends out of the whole year for this part of the country. But this glorious year, Winter stayed around FOREVER, and tried to torment us on their wedding day. It was raining the whole way there – and COLD…like in the 50′s! God blessed us, though, by stopping the rain and giving us a beautiful afternoon and evening for the ceremony, and even the night wasn’t frigid. Woohoo!
Here are some of our faves from their awesome day!
