Jared and Chris’s Couple’s Portrait Session

DFW Engagement PhotographerOver seven years ago, on a bit of a whim, I started my journey in photographing complete strangers that, in turn, became familiar faces. It’s been an arduous voyage that’s taken me through many hurdles, both good and bad. I’ve been able to meet so many amazing people, have been given so many great experiences, and through capturing other people’s moments, were able to make my own at the same time. But it’s been a lonely road. And we all know that everything is more fun when you have someone to share it with.

After moving to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, I met Jared, a fellow photographer with a spunky attitude and a lively laugh. We hit it off pretty quickly and I knew we would make a great team. That is why I am excited to announce that Jared is our newest addition to Paper Ban Photography team!

I had the pleasure of photographing him and his partner Chris one afternoon, and they are such goofballs when they’re together, as you can see. In so many ways, they are such opposites. But you know what they say – opposites attract!

Kristina and Brandon’s San Francisco Engagement Portraits

Palace of Fine Arts Engagement PortraitRight off the bat, Kristina and Brandon’s chemistry was strong. She is the talker, and he is the quiet one. She knew what she wanted, and he went with the flow. It was adorable to witness how well they worked as a couple – his yin to her yang.

As residents of San Diego, they decided to take a trip to San Francisco for their engagement portraits. We made two stops – one at the Palace of Fine Arts and one at Muir Woods. Both locations were just stunning, and they looked amazing in both!

I seriously can’t wait to shoot their Palm Springs wedding next month!
