Tomorrow, Tammy and Manoj will be husband and wife! To celebrate, here’s a look back at their engagement session in Deep Ellum earlier this year.  The colorful murals served as beautiful backdrops for these two who are just as vibrant and fun.  Congratulations to the happy couple!

Love is in the air!  Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!  In November, I had the opportunity to photograph my very first wedding!  It was an honor to witness these two as they said their I Do’s in front of their close family and friends.  They were supposed to be wed in Puerto Rico but due to the hurricane, they had to make some quick changes to their plans.  It turned out to be a beautiful day for a fall wedding and they picked such a beautiful venue (Hidden Waters Event Venue).  With successfully planning a wedding in such a short time (a month and a half, to be exact), I think they can get through any obstacle that life throws at them.  Wishing Kalyn and Carl the very best on a wonderful life together.  Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!

PS.  Here’s a look back at their engagement pics that I posted exactly a year ago today!

I had a great evening getting to know this newly engaged couple.  They’re gorgeous, fun and very much in love.  Originally from Alaska, White Rock Lake was a great spot to showcase their current city.  Later this year, they will be celebrating their love with close family and friends at a destination wedding in Florida.  Best wishes on the start of a beautiful life together!

krismackee-85wmThis couple recently celebrated 15 years together.  Pretty impressive considering not a lot of married couples can say the same.  This year is extra special because they will finally become husband and wife.  Visiting from New York, I was so happy they asked me to take some engagement pictures for them while they were in town.  Here are a few of my favorites from our morning.krismackee-2wm krismackee-9wmBut first, coffee!
