The hardest part of taking bridal photos is keeping them under wraps until after the Big Day.  Chelsea spends a lot of time at the beautiful Big Cedar Lodge, so it was only fitting to do her bridal session there.big-cedar-bridal-portraits-4 big-cedar-bridal-portraits-6 big-cedar-bridal-portraits-7 big-cedar-bridal-portraits-8 big-cedar-bridal-portraits-9 big-cedar-bridal-portraits-10 big-cedar-bridal-portraits-11 big-cedar-bridal-portraits-12 big-cedar-bridal-portraits-13

Chelsea and Chris had a beautiful wedding at the most quaint venue.  Creekwood Gardens was the perfect setting for this sweet couple.

When Jackie called me from Louisiana to book her wedding, she was simply giddy.  She explained that she and her fiance, Kirby, were “sneaking off” to get married, but that her family would kill her if she didn’t bring back some great wedding pictures.  I have to say these two were the sweetest couple! Their ceremony was held at the beautiful Beaver Lakefront Cabins.  It was a beautiful winter day in Eureka Springs.

As soon as those pretty little rings are unwrapped on Christmas, my phone starts ringing and my email goes nuts.  Here it is January 9, and I have booked 14 weddings for 2014.  I think I’m liking the number 14.

As I sit here looking out at the ice-covered ground, Spring seems like a long way off. Can’t wait to photograph this cute couple in May.



Hayley and David are a photographer’s dream.  They look like they walked off the set of a Hollywood film, which is fitting since David is a videographer from California.  Hayley is a sweet little Southern Belle with roots in New Orleans.  Their wedding was held at Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas followed by an elegant reception at The Barefoot Ballroom in the Basin Park Hotel.I expect a happy ending from this love story.bridal-thorncrown-chapel bride-and-mother-thorncrown-chapel bride-thorncrown-chapel first-dance-basin-park-hotel reception-basin-park-hotel-eureka-springs reception-cupcakes-ricks-bakery-fayetteville-arkansas thorncrown-chapel-eureka thorncrown-chapel-wedding thorncrown-wedding wedding-bouquet wedding-couple-thorncrown-chapel-eureka-springs wedding-photographer-thorncrown-chapel-arkansas wedding-photographer-thorncrown-chapel groom-thorncrown-chapel

Tiffany and Kevin traveled from Oklahoma for a destination wedding at The Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs.  What a pretty, pretty little family they make with  Mr. Jaxon.

I often meet my clients for the first time on the day of their wedding since Eureka Springs is a destination wedding spot.  It’s always such a surprise to meet the people I have been talking with for months prior to their wedding.  Let me just say, I was super excited when I met these two gorgeous people.  What a sweet couple!  Love their simple, private wedding on the lawn of The Crescent Hotel.

It is quite an honor to have one of my weddings featured on Arkansas Bride.  I love their blog and magazine and so do my brides!
