Eric and Laura were such an awesome couple!! They came up from Texas to have their wedding at Laura’s parents’ house in Little Rock. It was such a lovely Victorian home – it was the perfect venue for a small Fall wedding. I have to say, I was in love with the details of this wedding. The moss, the deer, the flowers – *sigh* – perfect! After the ceremony, we headed to the Mark Twain Riverboat for a casual reception and short river tour. Our groom is licensed to drive these awesome boats, so he got to steer for a while! So cool! :)
*Sigh*…this wedding was so gorgeous. It took place at the perfect time of day, during a beautiful time of year, at a stunning location, in to-die-for light. :) Stephen and Ashley had their lovely tiny wedding ceremony at St. Catherine’s at Bell Gable in Fayetteville, AR. Their informal reception followed at the Cedar Lodge in Bella Vista, AR. The day was just so picturesque from start to finish. If only all weddings were this easy! ;) One of my favorite things from their wedding was the replica of the chapel Ashley’s grandfather made them as a wedding gift. He made it by hand, and her mother painted it. It brought tears to my eyes when they opened it!!
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!
Here are a few of our favorites from their special day – Enjoy!! :)
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!
Here are some of our favorites from their special day. Enjoy! :)
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. :)
