Sara and Matt – Wedding Reception at The Petroleum ClubFort Worth, TX

After the ceremony we headed downtown to the Petroleum Club where everyone was anxiously waiting the newlyweds.  The room was washed a beautiful purple with white and purple floral pieces by The Perfect Plan Events.  The bride and groom had their first dance as husband and wife and Sara had a special daddy daughter dance that was sung by her uncles.  Sara and Matt then joined all of their friends and family out on the dance floor and man do they have some mad dance skills!  You could tell everyone was having a blast and was sad to see the night end.  But it did have to end and we sent the Sara and Matt off to their honeymoon with a streamer farewell!  It has been such an honor getting to work with Sara, Matt and their friends and family.  I absolutely have loved getting to know them and I can’t wait to watch as they continue to grow their love and family!  Congratulations to Sara and Matt!

Sara and Matt – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at First United Methodist ChurchFort Worth, TX

What a perfect beginning to 2017!  I absolutely adore Sara and Matt and I am so glad that they were my first wedding of the year!  These two Horned Frogs were married at First United Methodist Church in Fort Worth.  Sara and her girls were a hoot during getting ready and it took almost all of them to hold up the front of her dress while putting on her garter.  Once they got Sara in her dress and all ready to go, it was time for her to see her future husband for the first time.  While Matt and I were waiting for Sara to join us in the courtyard, I asked what he thought her dress looked like.  He guessed that it would be big and poofy. He was right!  Sara made an absolutely stunning bride and I think Matt had a little trouble holding back the tears.  When taking in the vision that was his bride, he noticed that a strand of her hair was blue!  Sara says that when she was younger she used to dye her hair blue and so this was a fun way for her to bring that part of her to her wedding day and it was also her something blue!  It may have been a little chilly outside but boy did we have a fun time with all of Sara & Matt’s family and bridal party.  They were having fun making their “fake candid” photos as they liked to call them which made me laugh.  At last it was time to walk down the aisle.  Sara was escorted down the aisle by her sweet daddy and he gave her away to Matt.  They exchanged beautiful vows and officially became husband and wife!  It brings me so much joy to be able to share these images with everyone and show the love and happiness that this couple and their families possess.  Please check back soon for the rockin’ reception!

Brigit & Lucas – Engagement SessionKlyde Warren Park & The Arts Bishop District


Brigit and Lucas are such a fun and sweet couple! They are having an intimate wedding next month at Reata (yum!).  I enjoyed getting to know them as we walked around Dallas and explored the areas around Klyde Warren Park.  Brigit has a great smile and looked great (shout out to Fallon from Love + Pout Makeup).  For our second location we went to the Bishop Arts District and Brigit wore a fun pair of red shoes!  I can’t wait for their wedding!  Check out a few of my favorite moments from their shoot.

Jessica & Sidney – Engagement SessionFort Worth Botanic Gardens and Dowtown Fort Worth

Jessica and Sidney were such a fun couple!  We were lucky and got not only beautiful weather but also fall color in December!  We started off our session at the Botanic Gardens and then moved to Sundance Square to get some fun photos.  Their sweet dog made an appearance as well for a few photos.  I can’t for their wedding next year!  Enjoy some of my favorite moments from their session!

Lauren and Russell – Engagement SessionWhite Rock Lake - Dallas, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

I just can’t get over how cute these two are!  I met up with Lauren and Russell over at White Rock Lake and the day turned out to be gorgeous.  We thought we might have some trouble with the wind at first, but as we all know the weather never actually does what they say it will do.  I had so much fun photographing these guys.  Lauren is a hoot and even though Russell started out a little hesitant, he started to show is true goofy colors and I loved it!  I love when I can laugh with my couples and they certainly kept me laughing the whole time.  I am so happy to share their engagement session and cannot wait for their wedding in June!

Jeanette and JB – Engagement SessionStockyards and Downtown Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

How cute are these two?!?  I love it when you can see a couple’s chemistry come through the camera and Jeanette and JB definitely have that kind of chemistry.  We started out with a more rustic look over at the stockyards before heading out to downtown for some cool night photos.  It was so great getting to hang out and know these two!  Can’t wait for their big day in October!

Molly and Sha – Wedding ReceptionWildcatter Ranch - Graham, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.comI’ve said it multiple times already but let me say it just one more time.  I absolutely adore Molly and Sha!  It always makes me so happy when I can consider my couples, my friends and I truly consider these two my friends.  They have a beautiful love and aren’t afraid to show it off in front of the camera.  It makes me one happy photographer when I can just capture moments and boy did they give me a ton of moments!  Before they began their first dance we were able to sneak away and get a few amazing photos that show off the gorgeous nature surrounding us.  Megan and I were squealing with joy at the beauty we were able to capture.  That’s how you know we love our job so much!  Molly and Sha began their first dance as husband and wife and it was as if they were the only two people out there.  They just soak each other up and forget about the world around them and that is one of the things I love so much about them.  I am so excited that I had the privilege of photographing their big day!  Congratulations Molly and Sha!

Kendall and Kyle – Engagement SessionTCU and Japanese Gardens - Fort Worth, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

I am super excited to share this engagement session!  We all know I get really excited for my TCU couples and when I get to photograph them on campus.  But I don’t often get to photograph on the field when it is prepped for game day!  Kendall and Kyle are TCU alumni like myself and flew in from Oregon for the game and to have their engagement photos done.  I loved getting to hang out with them and talk about our days at TCU.  It turns out that I was in a few classes with Kyle’s older sister!  Small world!  I so wish I was able to photograph their wedding, but unfortunately for me they will not be getting married here.  Congratulations Kendall and Kyle!

Lisa and John – Wedding ReceptionCity Club - Fort Worth, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.comAfter the ceremony we headed over to City Club for the reception that was held in the beautiful Oak Room.  The room was beautifully lit accenting the gorgeous centerpieces by Bridal Blooms with a stunning view of Downtown Fort Worth.  It was the perfect backdrop and atmosphere for their celebration!  Lisa and John danced the night away with their friends and family and you could tell they were having the time of their lives!  I think I may have learned a few new dance moves from some of the bridesmaids!  It truly was a magical night that ended with Lisa and John holding each other during a private dance before their send off.  They were sent off to begin their new life together through a tunnel of flutter-fetti and drove away in a horse and carriage.  It was such a great day and I couldn’t be happier that I was able to share it with this beautiful couple and their wonderful family.  Congratulations to Lisa and John!
