Meet Our Photographers
Hi there! Convey Studios is proud to work with several professional, lead photographers and videographers. We’re very excited to get to meet you! Here are some fun details so you can get a head start and meet our photographers.
Sesha has been photographing weddings since 1998. She has so many favorite things from photographing weddings that she can’t pick just one: the bride’s mom helping her daughter get her wedding dress on, the first time a groom sees the bride and he tries to hold back tears. Or that moment when a bride takes a deep breath, and the doors are opened before her and her dad and they take that first step in the procession. When the vows are exchanged and the couple can hardly believe they’re really standing there.
Sesha currently lives in Euless, Texas (but her heart will always be in Springfield, Missouri!) with her husband and answered prayer, Nick. They currently have no kids, but they are super-excited to be parents some day. Sesha loves Nick’s Christ-likeness, patience and leadership. “I prayed for him for 15 years and while I had times of doubt that God was even hearing me, I’ll always be grateful that he heard those small and big requests that I had and chose to give me Nick.”
Several things compose Sesha’s bucket list, including “Traveling to Bhutan, paying for someone’s college education, and finally telling Matthew Perry from Friends what I was supposed to back in 1999. 🙂 Insert one of my most embarrassing moments in front of a celebrity.”
Sesha has several great memories from her wedding. “Man oh man, what a fun day! Being in the ER the morning of and giving decorating instructions, seeing my hubs for the first time and just being in awe of God’s kindness to bring us together, holding back tears and laughing through my vows, sharing a look with my BFFs during the ceremony, and my mom’s hugs throughout the day. Oh I can’t forget the great sparkler explosion of 2011!!”
Sesha’s advice for couples on their wedding day is to “take deep breaths and keep it simple. So many times I see couples get carried away with crazy big weddings, but so many of them don’t remember their day or the bride is on the verge of a breakdown before she gets her wedding dress on.”
Ashley, who lives in Denton, photographed her first wedding in the summer of 2010. It was a last-minute request from a couple whose original photographer canceled on them a week before the big day. Ashley had worked in photojournalism, but she’d never done a wedding before. “They told me they wanted something different, so I brought four different film cameras and one digital for their unique, Steampunk-themed wedding,” she says. “The photos turned out great, and I knew I had a knack for shooting weddings.”
One of her favorite things about photographing weddings is seeing how each ceremony reflects the characteristics of the couple. “I love knowing how they met and seeing the love the two of them share. I love being trusted to capture the intimate moments and emotions of one of the most significant days in someone’s life.”
As for her own significant other, Ben, Ashley says she loves his passion for life. In addition, “he is my rock and my love and I am blessed to have him by my side. I love that he is who he is without much influence from the people and cultures around him. He’s a genuine person.”
When she’s not working, Ashley enjoys strength training, running and kickboxing. She also loves spending time with her American Staffordshire Terrior, Grimm. Someday, she plans to publish a book of interviews with strangers she meets across the United States.
Her best advice for couples on their wedding day: “Relax as much as possible and try to take in the moments and go with the flow of the day. It can be a whirlwind and sometimes unpredictable, so I think it’s important to just remember to take it in as much as possible and remember they are marrying the love of their life. They have worked so hard to reach this point, so enjoy it as much as possible.”
Yesenia describes her wedding photography style as “raw candid moments.” She’s been photographing weddings since 2012. Her favorite part? “The emotions! That doesn’t mean I expect tears at every wedding, but I love to see how each person expresses their love and emotions that day.”
I am married with an incredible man. Alan has been my rock through every obstacle I have gone through from the day we met. We married when I was only 17 years old and we have been married for a bit over 8 years now. I can honestly say that we have grown so much together.” Alan and Yesenia live in Lake Worth with their two “very spirited boys,” ages 7 and 6.
Coffee is one of Yesenia’s favorite things! She loves “coffee, wine, books, plants, cuddles with our two German shepherds and COFFEE.” She’d love to live in Guanajuato, Mexico for a year, which she describes as “the most colorful place I have seen!”
Yesenia’s advice for couples on their wedding day is “Focus on the one who matters the most, your partner. If you focus on each other, even if something doesn’t go exactly as planned, it won’t even matter. Remember that the most important thing is the reason why you both are there, to start your journey together, so soak it all in.”
Cindy lives in Arlington, TX with her husband, Alan. She loves Alan’s kind heart, humor, and dependability. They have two adult children, Cassidy and Cory, and two grandchildren who are 3 and 1. She plans to share her love of travel with her grandkids when they’re older and, in her spare time, she enjoys 20-mile bike rides with her hubby and remodeling flip-homes.
Cindy has been photographing weddings since 2009. She remembers “how wonderful it felt to be behind-the-scenes, to witness all of the anticipation as plans unfolded that had been dreamed of for so long, to experience first-hand all of the loving emotions, and realizing my passion for wanting all of those special moments to be captured for all time.
Illustrative and artsy, with a fun flair are how Cindy describes her photographic style. Her advice to couples on their wedding day is to remember that “A wedding is a celebration, not a performance. If at the end of the day, you’re married to the one you love, then everything went perfectly.”
Evgeniy has been photographing weddings since 2011 and describes his style as dramatic, classic, and fun. His favorite part of photographing weddings? “I love capturing the raw emotions. Emotions that can be cherished forever via photos.”
Fort Worth, TX is where Evgeniy lives with his wife, Katia, and their two children. He fondly remembers his own wedding, when he carried Katia on slippery ice from the church to the hall.
In his free time, Evgeniy enjoys making YouTube videos, and he hopes to one day visit Jerusalem. His motto for life: “After every storm there is a rainbow.”
Suad has been photographing weddings since 1998 and loves being a part of such an important journey from the beginning. She describes her photo style as candid, intimate, and artistic.
In Whitewright, TX, Suad lives with her husband Pete and her two step sons, André and Nate. She loves Pete’s heart for God and his sense of humor. Her favorite memory from her own wedding was taking communion with her new husband at the altar.
Traveling the world eating and taking photos is on Suad’s bucket list as something she’d love to do someday! She says, “photography is both my career and hobby.”
Her advice to couples on their wedding day? “Always remember your spouse is on your team and is your best friend.”
Turk lives in Dallas, TX with his wife, Jenny, and their two girls, Maggie and Willow. He loves how intuitive Jenny is. Turk and Jenny eloped, and one of his favorite memories from his wedding was driving to the hotel. “Jenny and I got married 30 days after we met so we laughed our way to our room.”
One of Turk’s hobbies is riding his bicycle, and he says that one item on his bucket list is “a dangerous expedition.” His motto in life? Choose light. Choose love.
Turk has been photographing weddings since 2001 and describes his style as honest, emotional, and engaging. His recommendation for brides and grooms is to “Listen with your heart.”
Berenice has been photographing weddings since 2011 and describes her style as illustrative and modern. She loves several things about photographing weddings: “Capturing the unique connection each couple shares with each other. Seeing family and friends get together to celebrate the couple. Listening to personalized, heartfelt vows.”
Berenice lives in Dallas, Texas. Kayaking, camping, going to the movies, travel, and antique shopping are some of her favorite activities. One item on her bucket list is “to take a month-long Eurotrip with stops in Venice, London, Paris, Rome, Greece, and Barcelona.”
Her motto is, “Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. Believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance – take it; if it changes your life – let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.”
Berenice’s advice to couples on their wedding day is to “give special priority to the power of communication.”
A Dallas resident, Scott describes his photography style as “unique journalistic portraiture.”
He knows he has a very special job to do on behalf of the couples, and he approaches it with a passion:
“With weddings, there is a constant stream of activity all around you. As a photographer, you’re often outside all of that activity, able to see it happening without having to partake in it. It’s similar to watching a movie, except that you have to pay such explicit attention to all of the infinite details and be ready to photograph a moment which could last all of a half-second. I get to see things so many miss, and I get to immortalize that moment by literally capturing the light of it. That’s sort of an unreal power to possess.”
When he’s not working, Scott enjoys going to live shows “and I’m sure to partake in nightlife as often as I can.” He dreams of one day going backpacking through Nepal.
His advice for couples on their wedding day? “Accept that things won’t go as planned, and roll with it. The day is about the memories, so don’t give yourself stressful memories!”
Stephen’s favorite part of photographing weddings is “Getting to see how each couple and family expresses love.” He has been photographing weddings since 2007 and describes his style as vintage, glamour, and fashion.
Fort Worth, TX is where Stephen resides with his wife Jeanene and their two-year-old son Christian. One of his favorite memories from his wedding was “The frog in the throat moment where my wife couldn’t talk during our vows because she was so choked up.”
Spending time with his wife and son is one of Stephen’s favorite things to do, and he also hopes to one day go on an African Safari. His motto is “Never stress over what you can’t control.”
Stephen has this piece of advice for couple’s on their wedding day: “Take it one breath at a time, at the end of the day you’ll be married to your best friend so don’t sweat the little things.”
Copeland lives in Denton, TX with his wife Lauren. His favorite quality about Lauren is that she “loves, listens to, follows and trusts the Lord.” They have three children together: Lila, Greyson, and Copeland.
Modern, traditional, and elegant is how Copeland describes his wedding photography style. He has been photographing weddings since 2001. This is what he had to say when asked about his favorite part of photographing weddings: “The party! The excitement! The fun!”
Mountain bike riding is one of Copeland’s favorite hobbies and one of the items on his bucket list is to one day go sky diving. His motto for life? “We are not in control…Let go and let God!”
A resident of Dallas, Texas, Jacque has been photographing weddings since 2010. He describes his wedding photography style as “elegant, natural, and emotional.” He loves “having the opportunity to witness and document such a magical day in people’s lives.”
One of Jacque’s hobbies is restoring vintage motorcycles, and an item on his bucket list is to “ride a motorcycle south, all the way to Panama.” His motto is to “follow your bliss.”
Jacque’s advice to couples on their wedding day is simple: “Always remember the love you felt on this day.”

Kendall, who began photographing weddings in 2014, says she enjoys “watching the progression of the day and being able to capture special moments that will last forever.” She describes her photography style as natural, personal and romantic.
The Denton resident has studied art for more than 10 years, taking classes in drawing, painting and sculpting. She now utilizes those skills in both graphic design and photography.
Kendall has a passion for travel and has a goal to visit every continent in the world — and she’s already halfway there.
“I love being immersed in new cultures and new experiences,” she adds. “One of my favorite places I’ve been to is Bulembu, Swaziland. It’s a small town in the mountains of southern Africa that is dedicated to the orphans of Swaziland, and they all live in multicolored houses on the side of a hill. I’ll never forget watching the sunrise over that hill.”
Her motto? “My goal is to be a light in the world.”
