Candace & Jeff | Engagement Session Grapevine, TX

Jeff and Candace drove from Houston to meet me on a bright morning at Grapevine Lake.  I’d spoken with Candace several times, but this was the first time in person.  Immediately, I felt so comfortable with them both, like we were old friends.  I had every suspicion it would be this way.  When inquiries come in, I’ll ask questions to get to know the couple and see if we’d be a good fit.  That’s important to me, because I don’t take jobs.  I don’t think any couple should entrust their once in a lifetime wedding day to someone who treats it like a “job.”  I’m there to serve a couple, to the best of my ability… and in doing that, I will work to photograph their story with authenticity.  Beauty.  Love.  But it’s much more than a job.  I’m the one who stands in their shadow and creates their first heirloom as husband and wife.
This, is a sacred trust.

When I asked Candace to describe Jeff in 3 words, she did.  I often hear amazing things.  Beautiful descriptives.  Her reply?
He is home.
That set me back on my heels and made me stop.
I admit, I thought about that all day… and for many days since.

Marriage is a great many things.  Requiring a great many things.
But if someone always makes you feel like you’ve come home, well… there’s not really anything better than that.

Candace and Jeff, you blew me away and I cannot wait to celebrate your wedding at The Vineyard at Florence.  I plan to do an Irish dance or two with you (Candace?), and hear what you decide about those Norwegian vows.  Maybe you can thumb war it out.  🙂  You two are truly special… and one of a kind.

Thank you for such a joy filled morning.
We’re going to have so much fun this October!

With gratitude,


let's tell your story
