What an amazing day with an amazing couple. These two were nothing but a delight to work with!

I met up with Tiffany a couple weeks ago to talk over some wedding details, and she told me one of the most awful stories I’ve ever heard… All of their wedding stuff (I mean… ALL of it) was stacked up in boxes in their house, and they got robbed. Yes, you read that correctly. Everything was gone. Everything from her veil to wedding shower gifts and even Charlie’s laptop (which contained his thesis, and had to rewrite!!!). I mean, seriously tragic. Not to mention that Tiffany is one of the most organized, on top of things brides I’ve ever had, so of course, every wedding detail was finished and sitting in one of those boxes.

While she was telling her story, I was looking at her through my teary eyes, probably rehearsing what kinds of hateful things I would say to whoever stole their belongings, and then the amazingness happened. Her and Charlie went to church two days after they were robbed, and the sermon was something about not holding to tightly to material possessions. DANG.

So, long story short (okay maybe it’s still a little long), God did some amazing stuff in Tiffany and Charlie and allowed them to move on and forgive and have an awesome wedding anyway. I was super encouraged by the whole ordeal, and learned so much from the way they handled that situation with grace.

And another thing. Tiffany is one of the most grateful people I’ve ever met. For example. We were taking pictures of Tiffany and Charlie before the wedding, and a couple of her friends drove by. She immediately started tearing up and said, “oh my goodness, they’re so sweet for coming! i can’t wait to see them!!” That happened at least three times while taking pictures. Haha. It was flat out adorable. And then Charlie. He cares SO MUCH for Tiffany, and he’s just a sweet, sweet guy. Get this. He packed their bags for their honeymoon to Hawaii, and Tiffany was 100% confident that he would take care of it. Wowza.

Also, the lovely Courtney Ryburn shot this wedding with me. Check out her blog for some more highlights from the wedding!

Oh my, I need to post some pictures! Here we go.

Remember the lovely ladies at Lullaby Lubbock? (yes, i love me some alliteration)

Kristen, Jeff and their three kiddos are peacin’ out of Lubbock this week. Jeff is officially a Doctor, and he’s going to do his residency in Tyler.

It’s been so fun to see how close Allison and Kristen’s kiddos have gotten. I mean, they’re like for real best friends, and they do everything together. So, of course we had to have a BFF session before they leave Lubbock. I get a good amount of sad thinking about it, so I can’t even imagine what Allison and Kristen are going through, but let’s just not go there :)

Onto the cuteness overload!

May 17, 2010

I got a call from Kyle the week before Mother’s Day, and we talked over some top secret stuff. He wanted to surprise his wifey, and I was totally on board.

So I met Kyle and Isaiah at the golf course. We had the shortest session known to man, and had some cute overload fo sho.

Needless to say, Janae was surprised :)

When we got back from Guatemala, life picked up so fast and got so crazy that I completely forgot I didn’t blog our whole trip. How could I forget our day in quaint, beautiful, historic Antigua!

This was the view from on top of our hotel.

I love meeting new people. I love getting to spend time with them, and by the end of the session, feeling like we’re pretty good buds. And in the middle of all that, finding out how many mutual friends we have. That always blows my mind!

Anyhow, Haley was a joy to be around, and we enjoyed the springtime sunshine like crazy.

bekah – senior

May 4, 2010

Bekah is GORGEOUS. Seriously… can anyone else out there believe she’s a senior in high school? No way, jose.

She’s kind of a big deal in the sports department of life – she’s going to run track at Wayland in the fall.

Here’s some favorites from our super fun session on the prettiest day of the year!
