Anything else, would love for you to ask!

This shoot was part of my senior photos taken by the talented Katie Lamb. As a photographer she is my absolute idol. She has such an eye so if you are in the Dallas area I highly recommend her. It was so special taking my senior photos at Chateau Cocomar. This castle is special to me in so many ways. One being the wedding venue Ted and I exchanged our vows in front of 350 guests in 2012. The people that work in the castle along with the owner, Karen Martin, are my family. They invested in me, believed in me, and taught me everything I know. It was where I would spend my weekends in College as opposed to the normal senior kid at football games. I can go on and on about this castle. Cocomar will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart.
