Mercedes and CollinThis session is definitely a throwback and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share it with you!

Would you believe we took Mercedes and Collin’s engagement photos last June?! I know, I know, but I wasn’t exactly blogging back then and better late than never, right?

Especially since these two are finally tying the knot this weekend!

Whoop whoop!

I’m hesitant to admit this but this was the first session where I felt like I had finally come into my own. I had never been as thrilled with a set of images like I had been with this one. Which is probably why it remains one of my FAVORITE sessions to this day.

I remember being incredibly nervous because Mercedes is definitely a girl who knows what she wants (we could all benefit from being a bit more like her in this sense). And I, of course, wanted to exceed her expectations. I wanted her and Collin to be thrilled with the images and confident in the photographer they had chosen to document such an important time in their lives.

I’m pretty sure I succeeded in all of the above.

Wedding Bells.

Knowing the people that Mercedes and Collin are I can tell you that their upcoming wedding is going to be one for the books. It’s going to be GORGEOUS, eventful, and so much freaking fun. I sincerely cannot wait.

But since I cannot yet overshare what I expect to be one of the best weddings of the year here are a few of my favorite images from their engagement session!

More Than Just a Photographer

As a mom and a business owner, I understand the power of a moment, the story behind a smile. Photography for me is a bridge – connecting hearts, capturing the unspoken. It’s about creating an experience that’s as enjoyable as the final product. Your ideas, your story, your essence – I’m here to bring them to life through my lens.
