Back in June we were flying to Playa del Carmen and experienced what can only be described as horrendous travel delays. We were stuck in DFW for eight hours and were put on 4 flights that were canceled. We were lucky though, eight hours was NOTHING on this particular day. People had been there for 24 hours and there were lines of hundreds (literally HUNDREDS) of people who were trying to change their flights, get on other flights, you get the picture. As you can imagine, this was a little thrilling for me as there were people passed out everywhere. At times I was one of them and this made me pause and take pity of my fellow travelers. They were so exhausted and frustrated. The last thing they wanted was to end up on the world wide web. SO…..I just photographed the people around me. I’m sorry, strangers sitting next to me. I only have so much restraint when it comes to people sleeping in public.

By the way, notice the chairs that their sitting in. If you find yourself in the international terminal of the DFW airport, seek out these chairs. They’re so comfortable and makes painful travel experiences much easier to deal with.

Gina & Travis

Gina and Travis were high school sweethearts. For his wedding day gift to her, he gave her a box filled with every single note and love letter that she had ever written him. I believe they’ve been together for eight years. That’s a LOT of love letters!

The many faces of Gina D’Amore

I have but two words to describe Gina, my July 4th bride: Happy and Hilarious. She pulled so many faces while getting dressed that it had me in stitches.

Remember ladies, beauty is pain….

Most brides have dreamy looks on their faces when they put their dresses on (or some version of that). But not our Gina!

I’m posting her wedding later on today. It’s a beauty!

Have a good one – it’s Hump Day y’all,

Rain Rain Go Away.

That’s what we were thinking when Laura and Eagle’s outdoor wedding was moved inside. Now, we’d get anything to have that rain again as Austin is in the middle of a pretty serious drought.

Dirty, dirty dancing feet:

Dancing Wedding entrance

I saw this on Cup of Jo today and I had to share it with you. It’s a fantastic way to walk down the aisle. In fact, if I ever walk down the aisle (God willing, says my mother), this is probably how I would do it!


P.S. Sorry I haven’t been blogging lately. But I’m coming to the end of high season and will have more time now.

Yes, I’ve missed you too.

The bride’s little sister served as maid of honor in this wedding. This particular maid of honor had just turned 18 and graduated from high school all in the same week! Look how moved she is by watching her sister say her vows.

I love moments like these.

The show will consist of 15 large scale first edition prints, limited edition posters, and a booklet as a show accompaniment.
