One of my first gigs in Texas was for Hues of Man featuring Gucci in creating a stylized retelling of Bonnie and Clyde. The editorial film Bang Bang, directed by Nina Hawkins and Alan Ballesteross, re-imagines the story of Texas’s very own featuring Gucci collection pieces from Pre-Fall16, FW16, and Cruise 2017. These are my favorites, a lot of the highlighting the “Trouble Gang.” You can see the full editorial piece on Hues of Man.

Add another week in Sedona with Mom to list of our great adventures together! Three years ago I fell in love with this place. It was awesome to be back and experience entirely different weather. We hiked through and were hit in the eyeballs with rain, sleet, hail and snow but it somehow still managed to be incredibly magical. Seeing the red rocks with snow on them was something my Mom always wanted to experience, and little did I know how much I’d be captivated by it as well. All photographs taken with my trusty and true buddy, the Fuji X100T.
Stephen and Rachael had the most intimate Christmas Eve morning wedding in a 246 year old church. It was so special to be a part of and was the perfect way to wrap up my 2016 work year! I’m such a fan of these two.
Jamil and Sara’s very cold and misty hill country wedding. Despite it, they were all smiles and happy tears. These two were so dang excited to marry each other that I think they would’ve done it in a hurricane and it would’ve been just as gorgeous.

Kevin, Emily and Mary Finley. So fun to be back in Houston and reconnect with old friends who now have beautiful families like this. He and I were next door neighbors growing up and until this shoot, hadn’t seen each other in eight years. Emily is the exact coolness I’d assume he’d marry and their daughter is, as you can see, just freakin’ adorable.

I knew I’d love Jarryd and Lea’s wedding solely based on her inquiry. She reminded me that we’d met at after a Penny and Sparrow concert where we drank in a group of mutual friends at the glorious Brick Store Pub in Decatur, GA. She ended the email by saying “I’m marrying a wonderful, one-legged, Paralympian man in Athens, Georgia in October 2016.” I had to be there.
Jarryd represented the U.S. in Rio in the 2016 Olympics and Lea is a teacher with Teach For America. Power couple, much? They’re just as kind as they are passionate and it was truly such a joy to witness their marriage. After their wedding, I shared a king bed with two friends in Athens and then woke up and started my drive to Texas. Kind an amazing last night in Georgia if I do say so myself.

I will never forget my first long conversation with Megan a few years ago when Mark and I were their Intern Coordinators at SharpTop Cove. Mark asked everyone what some of their dreams in life were. Megan, with no hesitation, said “to fill all the cracks in the world with beads and buttons.” I fell in love with her right then and there. She’s so oddly unique that you can’t not be crazy about her. Tripp struck gold, as did she. He’s kind and caring and compliments her wonderfully. You’re fantastic together, Mazzuccos! We’re big fans.
One of Megan’s dreams for her wedding day was to get ready in an Airstream. Of course it was, and of course she made it happen. This thing was empty when it was delivered to Tripp’s grandparent’s home and she decked it out with furniture from The Nester in true Megan fashion.

Flowers – The handiwork of her sister Morgan and friend Anna!
I already miss date nights and weekends away with this buddy. Anna has one of the most contagious spirits of joy I know and, simply put, she’s one of the coolest girls I’ve ever met. I experience deep freedom in being my authentic self when near this friend. Love you, brave little toaster.
And her boo Matt bridesmaid and wedding guesting it.
