Hi there! Welcome to the blog where we share weddings, tips, and photos from recent shoots! Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm Kelly!


One hot summer day on the river in New Braunfels, Texas,  a starry-eyed Caylie mustered up the courage to say hello to a cute boy named Jake.  She lead off with the most classic of classic lines: “Hey, how old are you?”.  Instant chemistry.  A few weeks later,  Caylie took a trip to visit him in his hometown of Hondo, Texas, and the two felt a spark.  A few years down the road,  Caylie and Jake are road tripping to West Texas.  To cap off the first day, the two spent the evening outside of their yurt waiting for the mysterious Marfa Lights to appear on the horizon.  Jake was planning on waiting until later in the trip to propose to Caylie, but decided that the moment was right.  Under the endless expanse of twinkling stars in the sky,  Jake knelt down and held his heart out in his hand, or rather, a stunning engagement ring.  Caylie said yes!!

We had the opportunity to go on a short road trip to Jake’s family’s 100 year heirloom plot out in Hondo, Texas for their engagement session.  With rolling thunder clouds in the distance,  it made the shoot feel all the more epic and unpredictable. Thankfully, the rain went around us and even cooled us off just a tad. Caylie and Jake were very much in their element as we rode down to the creek, wandered the woods, and caught an amazing Texas sunset in the field. 

Caylie and Jake, thank you so much for choosing us as your engagement photographers. We loved being out in the country taking in the fresh air with you both while taking some gorgeous photos. We seriously can not wait for your wedding next April!
