Mark and Tallula have been planning this beautiful day for a very long time.  If you know Tallula, you will know that she had each and every detail planned and documented.  I had the pleasure of meeting Tallula right at the time she needed to choose a photographer.  I was honored to document their day and the love that surrounded them.

The day started off threatening rain.  I’m pretty certain we all did a “no rain” dance.  Thankfully, it passed right by and only dropped a few small rain drops.  Tallula and Mark both arrived at the venue to prepare for their day. Surrounded by love and laughter.


The amazing Sonya Sawyer transformed Tallula into the absolutely stunning bride that radiated all day and evening!


We only had just a few moments for bridals prior to time to tuck Tallula away before the guests arrived.  Tallula is an absolutely beautiful woman, but on this day, she was the definition of beautiful.

The little details of the day are so important and often over looked.  Every bride spends hours pouring over and planning the little details of the day.  It is little things that most people don’t give much thought to.  She did a phenomenal job.

The ceremony was beautiful.  Tallula and Mark were surrounded by a bridal party that absolutely rocked the day.  Beautiful and full of laughter. This day couldn’t have been any more perfect for this Tallula to marry her love.

The moment the groom sees his bride is always a precious moment

Congratulations on a BEAUTIFUL ceremony…. just a few stolen moments before the hustle and bustle of the reception.


and now… let the party begin!


One sweet last dance, alone, in the quiet of the room while everyone waited outside.


Congratulations Mark & Tallula.  I hope and pray that you spend many years as in love as you were on this day.


The wedding and reception were held at A&M Gardens in Azle, TX.  This venue is stunning beyond words.  It’s a photographers paradise.  The amazing coordinator, Cindy, walked me around and with every new area she took me to, it took my breath away.  Cindy was a godsend, every single bride needs a Cindy for the wedding.  She, and her counterpart Kelly, took care of every detail and ensured that the wedding remained on schedule.
