joshua + madison

I had the honor of photographing one of my good friends from DBU, Joshua, propose to his future bride, Madison a few weeks ago at White Rock Lake in Dallas! It’s been so evident, even from afar, that these two are pretty crazy about one another and love each other well. I live with Joshua’s sister and can honestly say, his family is incredible. Madison is lucky to be added to their crew. Also, could they be more beautiful together? I’m excited for all the Lord has for you two, Joshua & Madison!

julie + stafford

I loved getting to photograph Julie and Stafford’s wedding day in August alongside some amazing vendors at Ashton Gardens.

Julie met Stafford’s parents her freshman year of college at Texas A&M. They mentored her throughout school before she ever met their son, Stafford. I mean c’mon.. what a story!!

These two are some of the kindest people I have met and they truly are radiant together.

Julie immediately told me, when we first spoke, that she had been praying for a photographer and was really excited to find me through the referral of another photographer in town. I was bewildered when we first met. How can a couple be so kind, genuine and also beautiful. But here they are.. the new Mr. & Mrs. 2018-09-12_00352018-09-12_00312018-09-12_00162018-09-12_00172018-09-12_00362018-09-12_00152018-09-12_00182018-09-12_00142018-09-12_00192018-09-12_00202018-09-12_00402018-09-12_00422018-09-12_00412018-09-12_00452018-09-12_00432018-09-12_00442018-09-12_00522018-09-12_00462018-09-12_00472018-09-12_00482018-09-12_00492018-09-12_00512018-09-12_00342018-09-12_00332018-09-12_00322018-09-12_00072018-09-12_00012018-09-12_00082018-09-12_00092018-09-12_00102018-09-12_00062018-09-12_00132018-09-12_00122018-09-12_00112018-09-12_00022018-09-12_00032018-09-12_00052018-09-12_00282018-09-12_00272018-09-12_00212018-09-12_00222018-09-12_00302018-09-12_00232018-09-12_00242018-09-12_00252018-09-12_00262018-09-12_00372018-09-12_00382018-09-12_00392018-09-12_00502018-09-12_00542018-09-12_00552018-09-12_00562018-09-12_00572018-09-12_00582018-09-12_00592018-09-12_00602018-09-12_00612018-09-12_00622018-09-12_00632018-09-12_00642018-09-12_00662018-09-12_00672018-09-12_00682018-09-12_00692018-09-12_00702018-09-12_00712018-09-12_00722018-09-12_0073

Abby + John Michael

In June, I had the opportunity to photograph Abby and John Michael say “I do” right outside of Nashville, TN at Long Hollow Gardens Center. I was welcomed to Nash for a few days prior to the wedding by the kindest friends and hosts, making it truly just the sweetest stay! I felt as if I lived there.

Abby was on summer staff with me at Pinecove last year and she is absolutely incredible. Her and John Michael were high school sweethearts and went to UT together. (Go vols?!) Abby talked so highly of JM last summer that I knew he must be awesome and a man of stand up character. All these things were affirmed as I sat at their rehearsal dinner hearing story after story of how incredible and loved they truly are by one of the coolest communities of other high school sweethearts. Apparently their youth group breaded young lifelong sweethearts. haha

Abby, thank you for asking me to be a part of your GORGEOUS wedding day. You are a fearless, confident and beautiful women who reflects Jesus in all you do and I am so proud of you and can’t wait to see you kill it as the regional director for Delight ministries. You also make one stunning bride and are going to be such an amazing help mate for John Michael. This is is way I really love capturing stories, because God designed each of them and He is really good at it.

alice + curt

Alice and Curt were married at Brake and Clutch Warehouse just east of downtown Dallas in Deep Ellum.  They had friends and family travel in to town from all over to celebrate their beautiful wedding. I was able to attend their rehearsal dinner the night before and heard so many toasts and stories of how much this couple is loved and how well they love and care for their people. It was such a treat! It goes without saying that these two know how to have a party. They are both unbelievably kind and I had so much fun getting to photograph their wedding with some of the most incredible vendors in Dallas.

Matt+Faith

I still remember Faith coming into my room telling me Matt asked her on a date. They were leaders together at church so naturally she had been trying to avoid him for awhile, but really I think it’s just sweet that they were such good friends before dating. I had a front row seat at their dating relationship and got to watch Matt pursue Faith well. I really am such a fan of these two and cannot wait to see how they continue to be an example of God’s love for His people because of the way they demonstrate love towards one another. Also, how incredibly gorgeous is Faith and how “Faith+Matt” are these photos!?!www.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comMatt+Faith-121www.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.com

julie + stafford

Their story is one of a kind and it’s the type of story little girls dream of.  Julie was mentored by Stafford’s parents throughout college after meeting them at a local church in aggieland. She didn’t really know much about Stafford through the years because the parents devotion was to her, rather than their own personal lives. However, Julie and Stafford eventually met and now they are engaged to be wed. These two are obviously beautiful together, but you just have to trust me when I tell you their kindness and genuine affection for the Lord is even more beautiful. It’s such an honor to be able to capture their wedding this August! engagements-228engagements-233engagements-214engagements-196engagements-176engagements-148engagements-133engagements-121engagements-111engagements-101engagements-88engagements-74engagements-62engagements-55engagements-48engagements-36engagements-30engagements-5
