Mia Jade is a little girl who is currently growing inside one of my best friends, Katie . She’s entirely and incredibly loved, adored, cherished, protected, and has the genes to be extremely good looking thanks to her parents .
I’m so excited to meet the new babe, but until then .. I’ll continue to watch Katie glow and grow .
Love warms us and inspires us . It gives us something to always have hope in and fight for . Love doesn’t rationalize, it defends and protects without second thought . Love surrounds and engulfs . Him for her, her for him . Love luring them on to live fully and deeply, forever and on .
I’m so excited for Fall to be in full swing, but I had such awesome shoots this past Summer so I want to share them!
Starting with these two babes . We had so much fun photographing their engagements and I can’t wait until their wedding next Spring!
these two . good lord .
so pretty . so much fun . i shot their engagement session back in the fall and then had the wonderful opportunity to document their big day back in August .
i’m currently in Copenhagen, Denmark .. sitting in a coffee shop/cafe/bar that i’ve visited about 6 times since arriving here a few days ago . candles on every table, Agnes Obel playing in the background, french presses poured and re-poured, 52 degrees and breezy outside, bundled up and enjoying this time to be in awe of the place i’m in in life . thankful . truly .
so its time to play catch up .
i love blogging and sharing my work and the wonderful clients i work with . but i also absolutely suck at blogging . it’s so time consuming and seemingly pointless at the time of doing it .. but it always proves to be worth it when a new client finds me due to the fact i blogged! so that keeps me going . sort of . i’m still really bad it .
but i’ve found some time to sit and commit, here at Cafe Bopa .
a big cheers to this couple i’m blogging – bryan & deborah . two ridiculously pretty people with contagious smiles and laughs . it was such a joy getting to document this exciting time in their lives .
and just like that, i’m speechless .
from the day i shot their engagement shoot, i was enthralled by them . their effortless joy and love . her beauty, him captivated . his charm and way to ease her, her subtle strength and humbleness . everything alluring .
So when Josh & I got to document their wedding in Austin, TX, I was in a trance . Mesmerized . Unable to do anything else than what I was made to do . to document . to photograph this love that God has made in order to help remind and soothe and relinquish joy whenever the images are looked at years and decades from now .
A Sunday morning wedding . Close family and friends gathered . A moment to worship, followed by a moment to witness the union of two souls . All smiles, lots of pictures, mimosas and donuts, some sweet toasts and a lot of dancing . This wedding is one for the books .
WARNING: photo overload .. in the best way .
its a good good feeling to be proud of the work you create .

Andy & Meghan’s wedding was so beautiful . Their style is impeccable and I seriously couldn’t take my eyes off Meghan, she made the most beautiful bride .
I love writing stories with my photos, and their wedding was no different . But for this blog post, maybe due to my obsession with the style and colors of this wedding, I’m highlighting some of my personal favorite captures of the day . It might not write a story as much as usual, but for me, they simply just sing of beauty .
