When I graduated from Texas Tech University, I swiftly moved out west in my pursuit of acting. It’s often hard to believe here I am, a decade later, in this wonderfully unexpected career.

I found myself quietly visiting West Texas a handful of times this year. When Cam messaged me about capturing his engagement to Kendall and it aligned with my most recent trip, I was thrilled!

Cam + I met playing trumpet in the Tech ‘Goin’ Band from Raiderland’. We had kept up on the socials. He proposed to Kendall this summer on a dreamy cliffside lookout during a cycling ride.

For their engagement photos, Kendall suggested incorporating their bikes + shared passion for riding. The two showed up in full kits and we went for it. We caught some other beautiful locations around Ransom Canyon, including an insane tree tunnel, before heading down to the lake.

It was cloudy + chilly but I loved spending time with these spirited adventurers. I’m not sure I have any images of Kendall where she wasn’t glowing from ear to ear. Happy to share some of my favorites from my first Lubbock engagement session!
