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!

Hilda and Luis

Los Angeles Wedding Photographer


When Hilda opened her hotel room door, she was as calm as a butterfly. She had already gotten her hair done and was sorting out the guest table name cards for the reception. When Luis opened his hotel room door, he was a bit less calm. But that didn’t stop the guys from watching a bit of sports.

Keeping to traditions, Hilda and Luis never laid eyes until the grand entrance of the Bride at the Church. It was clear how must Luis loves Hilda in that instant, as his eyes instantly began to water. And no wonder, for Hilda looked gorgeous in her dress!

Thank you, Hilda and Luis, for having me photograph your wedding day!
