I can’t believe it’s been well over a year since I sat down with Jazmine and Erik to talk about their wedding at The Eagle Historic Warehouse in Hillsboro, Texas. I instantly loved the way they interact with each other, their love story, and how much they both adore animals. They both have extremely good hearts and I knew working with them would be a pleasure.
I had the absolute best time with them during their engagement session at Lake Ray Roberts - even when Jaz hurt her ankle near the beginning of the session and we decided to keep the rest of it limited to the spot we had landed without too much movement on her part when it came to posing. They both aced it and were so natural together.
Their wedding day came and went so quickly, but it was truly one of the highlights of my year. Their venue has some fantastic lighting, I’m obsessed with the brick inside the ceremony and reception space, and it’s nestled in the heart of some gorgeous old buildings all surrounded by unique alleyways with fantastic little spots for shooting. I can’t describe how wonderful (and hysterical!) their wedding party was and how sweet their families were - I seriously had the best time. My favorite part of the day was their first look because, after dancing around excitedly after seeing his gorgeous bride, Erik let out a loud “WHOOP!",” which was just the most genuine and awesome reaction. And then I cried because it was such a perfectly “Erik and Jaz” moment.
And I have to send a special shoutout to my girl, Nikki Lair, who acted as their planner and day of coordinator - she did a phenomenal job. And a second shoutout to John Bowman with Rock the Planet DJ. Chris and I hired John and his wife for our wedding and have been recommending them to everyone since then - working with them is such a blast because they really keep the party going and know how to read the room. (So, hire them!)
