Kamryn + Derrick | Cozy Christmas Wedding

I don't even know where to start with this greatness. 

Kamryn has been one of my best friends since Junior High. She's has the sweetest soul. So genuine. Beautiful. Funny. Talented. (Her voice is amazing and i've always been obsessed with her ok like strawberry wine obsessed. (kamryn, you member.)) We took on Europe together, we celebrated our first halloween together in like 6th grade, I made her myspace when we were too young to have one, she trusted me to take her pictures years and years ago when I didn't have a clue, she sang as I walked down the aisle on my own wedding day, etc. etc.

I love this girl and was absolutely honored to capture her and Derricks wedding day. Take the friendship I have with the bride and mix these bomb decorations and I was officially the happiest wedding photographer ever. Kamryn's love for Christmas has always been so extreme (in a good way), that I wouldn't have expected her wedding to be any different. It was GORGEOUS. Oh and they had an endless amount of wine and by wine I mean Lavaca Bluffs. Which is still wine, but the heavenly version. 

I wish you two the absolute best. Thanks for including me on the best day ever. Scroll down for the list of everyone who helped make this day so beautiful. Enjoy.

Brandon + Brooke | Beautiful Southern Engagement in Edna, Texas

These two were a dream to shoot. They were the winners of my engagement giveaway and I couldn't be happier with my pick. The love between these two is undeniably real, which makes my job so easy, yet so rewarding. They also had a little surprise for me...they're expecting their first child in March! Another reason these photos were filled with real joy. They're so excited for whats to come and it shows in every single photo! 

From the bride:

We always "knew of eachother" and were always at the same events, but never ran into eachother. One day I gained the courage to Facebook message him & we hit it off. We went on our first date on July 30, 2015 and I knew from that moment he was "the one". He proposed on Thursday, August 25, 2016.

Kayla + Dennis | Edna, Texas Engagement Session

Sharing an engagement session that I can't get enough of! (PS. I'm blogging again, yay!)

This couple is EVERYTHING. Nothing gets me quite as excited as getting to photograph a couple that has so much love for each other. Real laughs, real smiles...so real I actually had to tell Dennis to be serious a few times. Which I don't mind one bit!  I kept repeating myself over and over "You guys are making my job so easy." They'd laugh and go back to doing their thing like they do this everyday.  I don't see that as often.  You can tell by the photos how genuinely happy these two are. 

 Dennis and I went to school together from Junior High until we graduated. He was and still is one of my absolute best friends. Best friends are those that don't talk for years, but meet up for an engagement session and pick up where we left off Summer of 2010 like its been a few days. I'm so happy for these two. This was my first time meeting Kayla and I definitely, 100% approve. :) Such a sweet, beautiful bride to be! 

Enjoy!

Rocksbox It Girl Review + Your First Month FREE! | Laraina Hase

Rocksbox It Girl Opening + Review + FREE Box

Exciting stuff! I teamed up with Rocksbox and i'm now an It Girl! Even better, you can become an Insider and get your first month FREE using my code: 'larainahasexoxo' If you haven't heard already, Rocksbox is an amazing subscription based jewelry rental that sends 3 designer pieces styled just for you! Each box is worth up to $200. Your box can be exchanged for a new one as many times a month as you please for a set price of $19/month.

When Rocksbox contacted me asking if I was interested to be an It Girl, I shrieked. I had been following them on Instagram for a while and had been wanting to sign up, I just honestly couldn't decide which subscription box to give up to make room for another. One way or the other, eventually, I was GOING to get my hands on a box! Somehow I got really lucky and they reached out to me first! 

My first box is amazing. There wasn't one thing that I don't love or wear (everyday). I was almost nervous that there would be something in every box that I couldn't let go of, and my fear was right on point! I can't say goodbye to the amazing Jenny Bird Moonstone Cuff! I can't. I won't. 

I'm the girl who LOVES shopping, all things fashion, designer jewelry....BUT i'm also the type that has a hard time spending loads of money on an expensive pair of earrings that I know I won't get a good use out of. This is perfect for girls like me or girls who don't have a hard time spending! Did I mention you can buy the jewelry from your box that you can't let go for a discounted price? (insert praise hands emoji)

All in all, i'm hooked! Try it for your first month FREE using my code: 'larainahasexoxo'.
