Morgan and Jessica were a dream to work with and it was inevitable that these two were made to be together! Morgan and Jessica met when they were kids and these two even played little league baseball together along with her 2 brothers. Morgan and Jessica went to different high schools and only ran into each other at the local dancehall when they visited their hometown.. The only time they ever saw each other was when they would go out to dance.. Who would have ever thought that very thing called “dance” would be a big part of who they are today!
Jessica looked like a radiant royal princess and did it Kate Middleton style in her Elizabeth Lee Bridal gown. She held her composure and hid her nerves with such elegance for her forever day with her bride tribe and beautiful mother while they got dolled up on the second floor of the gorgeous venue The Reserve at Dancing Elk. (Did I mention I saw a camel there!?) I learned through our time together that Jessica and her mother Shelly have one of the strongest mother / daughter bonds I have ever seen. Every time Shelly would look at Jessica, she beamed with that proud mom glow!
Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and had such a humble confidence about him as if he had been preparing himself for this very moment all his life… He waited patiently with his best buds in the grooms room at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church while he slipped on his boots and threw on his tux jacket cool calm and collective before the minutes dropped down to the final few before the clock strikes 3..
I’ll let the photos speak for themselves next! I can’t wait to share their love story through my lens!

All I have to say is “WOW”! This couple is one of the sweetest, most in-love couples I’ve had the pleasure of knowing in my 8 years of business! Both Hailey & William are from Dallas so most of our communication has been through cell and email but, when I met them.. I felt like I knew them all my life. They were so welcoming and had so much confidence in my team and I capturing such an important day in their lives!
William & Hailey both met their very first day of college at Texas State University. They were part of the same STEM scholarship group. Hailey majored in Applied Mathematics and Will majored in Mechanical Engineering Technology. They both lived in the same dorm and quickly became close friends not knowing that they were developing these unexplained feelings. 4 1/2 years later.. they are united as one and have a beautiful tricolored Corgi as their fur baby!
Their wedding day was absolutely stunning and all of their closest friends and family were so welcoming! The music had all of us swinging our hips and the food melted in our mouths! My only complaint.. the Texas heat! Other than that.. pure perfection! Here is just a sneak peek of some of my favorite moments on their forever day!
Will + Hailey, always communicate, keep each other and your faith first in everything you do… cherish every second you are given together.. never go to bed angry. There will be ups and downs but just as long as you keep those things in mind.. You will get through anything! Thank you for choosing Captured Moments by Christine to capture your life’s most beautiful moments!

Through these COVID times, I love to see my couples push through all the chaos to make their forever day happen.. I got to spend a lot of time communicating with Syndal and her mother Dolly through our journey and really got to see the strength and golden heart in these two! Syndal is such a strong woman and not only beautiful on the inside but on the outside as well! With so many obstacles along the way the day finally came for her and her forever to unit as one in front of their closest friends and family. These two both remained tough through complicated storms of events but never let anything get in the way.
When I walked into Spring Creek Venue I couldn’t believe how gorgeous it looked! It was literally breathtaking.. We started off with all of the detail shots and finally got to hang out with Syndal and her ladies! The bond between all of them was obvious and the emotions also had Denise and I in tears. Time was flowing perfectly and Syndal staying calm and radiant the whole time! Well, she’s good at hiding it anyway if she was LOL.
The time came for her moment to walk down the isle with her hand wrapped around her fathers arm and it felt like time stood still. Through chaos and the tropical storm outside, it was the perfect ceremony. It was the perfect wedding… Here’s sneak peek of my day with Syndal & Randy Morris! But first… my message to you two..
Syndal & Randy, always communicate, keep each other and your faith first in everything you do… cherish every second you are given together.. never go to bed angry. There will be ups and downs but just as long as you keep those things in mind.. You will get through anything! Thank you for choosing Captured Moments by Christine to capture your life’s most beautiful moments!

Where do I even begin with these two! Sarah reached out to me about doing her wedding just before their lil guy was born. She wasn’t sure when, or exactly where.. but she knew it was going to be small, intimate and everything she ever wanted… When Sarah finally set a date, I had other obligations but wasn’t going to miss it for the world! I rearranged my schedule, paused moving from one studio to the other and made it happen. Why wouldn’t I!?! I wanted to be the one to capture this beautiful couple and witness such a unique love. I adore Sarah & John!
Friday, July 24, 2020 at 2 PM, all of their closest friends and family were at the Gazebo downtown waiting patiently and luckily there was a nice subtle breeze that made that afternoon very pleasant. Once they arrived and took their places, the tears already started rolling for John. It brought on the water works just to see him tear up before she even walked down the isle, but it also shows the happiness and overwhelming feeling he felt in that moment. She looked beautiful, like a Goddess… I can sit here and write more into detail as to what happened after that, but why? I’m a photographer.. I’ll let the photos do the talking and tell the story. Here’s just a sneak peek of my time with John & Sarah…
Happy birthday Sarah!
