Zach + Ashley | Caprock Canyons Engagement Session

Oops, I did it again, and no, not like Brittany. I have neglected showing you beautiful faces, but I have to break my silence with these two!! Meet my friends Zach and Ashley. They're a quirky, comfortable, genuine, GIVING, and creative couple that become instant friends because they're just that awesome. It's such an honor I got to do their engagement session because Ashley is a fellow photographer that is KICKING BUTT AND TAKING NAMES. Check her out, people!! She's the real deal. 

Ash + Zach were so easy-going as we ran through canyon cracks and chased bison while dodging their little presents-- if ya know what I mean. But the sweetest part was watching the babies learn from their mommas and daddies. It was squeal-worthy. Ash + Zach went out to Caprock Canyons early before their session to set up a dreamy tent for us to photograph them in, then that night, they camped out with their 3 pups! What a perfect way to finish engagement photos. Doing what you love with the one you love. I really like this couple, and I think you will, too.

HEY, SISTA! DAY 2

HEY, SISTA! Day 2- Joshua Tree

UGH WHAT IS THIS LIFE?? Let me tell you how small this world is by how I know this bombshell blonde, Ciara. So, the night before our second day of HEY, SISTA!, Our other Mother Sister, the remarkable Lauren Apel, showed us an image of our models for her live shoot, and it just so happens Ciara and I have been Instagram friends for the last several years but have never met! What? Was I finally about to meet my mega, Alabama babe girl crush in the flesh? I was, and meeting her fly as heck boo thang named Ty was just icing on the cake. 

I don't have many words to do justice to what that evening held. The chemistry between Ciara & Ty was undeniable. Several times I just stopped shooting and watched them. The desert dust was lightly kicked up while howls from the excitement of creativity filled the evening sky. It's weird group shooting and trying to get the compositions that are in your head, but that learning curve was the best teacher and challenge. Also the fact I was shooting with some broken beer bottle, but that's beside the point. It was definitely a "you had to be there" moment, so I hope I can bring you there through some of these images. This day made history in my book. Take a peep.

HEY, SISTA! Day 1

HEY, SISTA! Changed my life. 

No, Like really. I'm not even being dramatic right now. It's changed my perspective on where I am in my business and who I am as a creative and my trajectory into my future. Changed my life. 

Oh, I'm sorry. What's HEY, SISTA! you might ask? Well, it's a 4 day part photo workshop/part retreat where you go and get to learn from the best of the best in all things photo, floral, and makeup. It's a time to get out of your element, go somewhere new, and meet new boss ladies you create forever friendships with. I got the privilege to go on this most recent trip to Palm Springs, Cali-for-nia, and get a heaping dose of that GOOOOD light in the desert. Dead. I'm so excited to share the content I created over the week, and even more excited to be back home creating from this fresh, new version of me. Enjoy this day 1 shoot lead by THE lover girl Allison Harp (A Mother Sister of), and her beautiful couple Shelby & Andrew. 

Also, I couldn't possibly forget the incredible brains behind these looks- Meagan Bechtel served some serious looks with her incredible makeup and hair styling. Check her out for any makeup artist needs!

#OnCloudBermea | Megan + Isaac's Wedding

Megan came to me a little over a year ago asking me to shoot her wedding, and the last thing I was going to do was say no. Megan is such a creative and spunky person, so all of her wedding details and plans seemed intentional and dripping with beauty. The party started when they wanted to do their first look a few weeks before their wedding as a styled shoot in Palo Duro Canyon. Jaw-dropper. It was so intimate and just downright fun. I got to meet her boo, Isaac, that day, and they just made sense. He's a laid back and goofy musician that makes sure those around him are taken care of. On their wedding day, it was so fun to see them connect and laugh. Seriously, laughing-until-tears laughing. They're more than right for each other. And I just can't wait to go to Italy with them next year for their one year anniversary! <------- Let's make that happen!!! ;)

Mr. & Mrs. Bermea- October 14, 2017

Scott + Bianca | Proposal

Scott + Bianca | Proposal

You guys, it's a real thing. Scott + Bianca are getting married and the heavens have opened and the trumpets are sounding and the tears are flowing over this. Here's the little story of this tender couple.

Okay, I got a message on Insta from a friend saying he had a buddy that was going to propose to his girlfriend, and he needed a photographer.
Cue me. Duh, I love proposals, so I was super excited.
I got Scott on the phone and he told me it was their anniversary coming up, and he was going to plan a little date for them that would turn into him proposing. He had a general idea of how it would go, so I helped nail down specifics when we met at the lookout spot where he planned to pop the question. Our game plan was that I would be out there "on a shoot" with someone while he had a picnic date with his boo, Bianca. Well Bianca and Scott love throwing the baseball together, (cute, right?) so he planned to go back to his car to get the baseball and glove aka THE RING and ask her to be his wife. 
It worked flawlessly. They ate pizza while watching the sun set over the canyon and the unsuspecting Bianca quickly became a fiancée. It was perfect. There were tears and exclamations of praise and lots of exhales of, "I love you." 

Scott + Bianca. You're getting married, finally.

Hi, this is Morgan. She's kind-hearted and super hard working. She's an architecture student at Texas Tech University and I've had the privilege to know her for around 4 years now. Wow. 
Well, Morgan helped me with a super special proposal in Ransom Canyon a couple weeks ago. Our plan was that I would be "on a shoot" while the couple, Scott & Bianca, arrived to the cliff for a picnic, and when Scott popped the question, I'd creep in and get the magical moment. SCORE. It worked and it was perfect. But here's the couple shots I got of Morgan while "on the shoot." These are simple portraits-- no bells and whistles, but I loved the minimalistic aspect of it. It's just a simple portrait session, and it's just as beautiful and important as a styled shoot or a wedding. If you can't nail the basics, then how will you succeed in the bigger sessions?
She's the essence of beauty. Enjoy this simplicity.

You guys, Britt and Jesse.

I ship them. Do tweens still say that? I'm saying that right now because these two are seriously WONDERFUL. They are kind and gentle towards each other. They're those people who have that quiet spirit about them, but together they are unstoppable. Their August wedding can't get here quick enough. So much admiration for these two. You're kicking long-distance in the hiney.
