I Am Elizabeth Couch.

I create bold, beautiful, romantic & timeless images for lovebirds worldwide. 

Beyond photography, I am wife to Ryan, the most patient and loving man on earth. We are both fur parents to Archer, Leia & Darby. Our family is passionate about life-long learning (he is a teacher and I work full-time in higher education), art, comedy and what we categorize as "nerd stuff" (that means I can talk about Star Wars for hours).

Professional Journey

I was born in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, but grew up in Oklahoma City.

Although I had always been fascinated with photographs and cameras, it wasn't until 2007 when I picked up a DSLR for the first time. A photo from my first assignment at a journalism workshop at The University of Oklahoma went on to win a national competition hosted by the Dow Jones News Fund.

In 2011, I earned a B.A. in Mass Communications with cum laude honors from Oklahoma City University (OCU). While at OCU, I served as a photographer and an editor for Student Publications

While still in college, I accepted a full-time producer position at Telemundo Oklahoma, where I produced the only Spanish-language newscast in the state.

Following graduation, I joined KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City as a news producer where I was involved in coverage of multiple severe weather events (including the deadly May 20, 2013 tornado) and two Children’s Miracle Network telethons.

In 2014, I joined KXTX-TV in Dallas as a news producer, where I earned four Lone Star Emmy Awards for coverage of various topics, including breaking news coverage of the July 7, 2016 Downtown Dallas police ambush.

I currently serve as an Assistant Director of Media Relations at The University of Texas at Arlington where I have received various accolades including the 2019 Mujeres Legendarias de Ford Motor Company Award and the 2020 CASE District IV Bronze Award for News Writing.

“It's not enough to just own a camera. Everyone owns a camera. To be a photographer, you must understand, appreciate, and harness the power you hold!”

Are We Meant To Be? Let's Seal The Deal!

What else should we know about you?

My goal is to always have fun with the couples I photograph. I try my hardest to get to know everyone I photograph, this allows me to capture their true essence. I strive to reflect a chill and laid back vibe, because no one wants a stressed out person around them on their special day. Stress is contagious!

Seriously, what else?

Things to know about me as a person:
1. I love dogs. My husband and I have 3 fur babies!
2. I have healthy obsessions about the following: Star Wars, The Office, Unicorns, Tacos and Asian Food (ALL. OF. IT).
3. When you bring me on as part of your wedding entourage, I will dedicate all of my energy to make your special day the best possible.
4. My favorite quote: "There has never been a sadness that can’t been cured by breakfast food." -Ron Swanson.
5. Did I mention I love dogs? (Just checking!)
