Crystal and Kendrick met at church, and this past spring became a blended family when they married on May 1, 2016. They're both full of personality, and I love the way they lovingly teased each other during the shoot. We had their shoot in the Arts District in Downtown Dallas, just walking around the area.

Meet Amber Knowles: My photography journey behind the camera didn’t begin until I finished college. Moving to the Big Apple was a lifelong dream, and college gave me the opportunity to leave behind my native Los Angeles. I attended NYU, and after graduation, I decided to attend the Salt Institute in Portland, Maine to study documentary photography. I came back to New York, assisted some amazing photographers, and put what I had recently learned into action. During that time, I was exposed to all types of photography, shooting everything from bar mitzvahs to a music festival in Lagos, Nigeria. But when it came time to choose a specialty, I realized that the process of love and marriage was the one piece of the human experience for which I had a true passion. I wanted to spend my time capturing the union of two people, and all the emotions that manifest in the process.
