From the moment I read Allison's first email, I was captivated by her story. I was eager to get to know her and be a part of her and Matthew's love journey.

Throughout the process, from our initial phone call to their beautiful wedding at Dry Creek Gathering, these two were filled with love and joy. They were a dream to work with, always wearing smiles on their faces. The bridal party was equally as affectionate, showering them with love and support.

Allison and Matthew, your wedding was truly unforgettable! The love and support from your families and friends was evident, and I encourage you to lean on them during both the good times and the challenging ones. It was an honor to be entrusted with capturing your special day, and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness.

Let's take a moment to reflect on how their love story started. Allison discovered Matthew on Instagram, where she stumbled upon a video of him playing guitar and singing. Intrigued by his talent, she decided to follow him. Matthew found Allison cute and decided to message her. Their first date took place on the beautiful beaches of Galveston, where Matt set up a charming picnic, complete with a bottle of whiskey. Since then, they have been inseparable.

Matthew's proposal was a true surprise. After being apart for a month due to work, he realized how much he never wanted to be away from Allison. When she picked him up from the airport, he popped the question right there! Little did she know, he had planned a surprise engagement party at one of their favorite bars in Galveston. Friends and family from all over were waiting to celebrate with them until the early hours of the morning.

Allison had a clear vision for their wedding style. She wanted a vintage and boho feel, something timeless and classy while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. Above all, she wanted everyone to have fun and be able to laugh off any unexpected hiccups along the way.

As a photographer, my goal was to capture the warmth, romance, and relaxed nature of their special day. From the candid moments to the intimate poses, I aimed to reflect their fun-loving personalities and the joyous atmosphere they created. It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of such a beautiful celebration of love.
