Cecilia & Boyd Ceremony and Reception at Stonebridge Ranch Country Club

Lightly Photography 2014  http://lightlyphoto.com

I loved Cecilia and Boyd’s intimate wedding at Stonebridge Ranch Country Club because it was filled with so much love and emotion.  The minute Cecilia turned the corner and saw Boyd both of their eyes filled with tears. Immediately after the ceremony Cecilia and Boyd embraced for mintes. That is one of my favorite times is after the ceremony when the bride and groom take a moment to take in that they are now married. Here are some of my favorites from their McKinney Wedding.

Melissa & Josh {Engaged} at Fort Worth Public Library and Botanic Gardens





I am so excited to share these photos of Melissa and Josh.   They really enjoy reading and Melissa loves to write as well, so naturally the Fort Worth Public Library was a perfect place for them.  They were so cute as they read random books to each other and Melissa tried to teach Josh a few things on the piano that we found upstairs at the library.   We had such a great time during their session and they were cracking me up the whole time.  Melissa and Josh will be getting married in Houston, where Melissa’s family is, in August.  I am so glad that I had the opportunity to shoot this amazing couple’s engagement photos.  Please enjoy some of my favorite images from their engagement session.

Amy & Jared {Engaged} at Cedar Hill State Park, Penn Farm

Amy & Jared are a very country couple from Midland, Texas.  They will be getting married at River Ranch in the Fort Worth Stockyards in August and I can’t wait to photograph their country wedding.  When I first spoke with Amy she told me that it was important for there to be some green in their engagement photos, because being from Midland all they see is brown all the time.  Penn Farm at Cedar Hill State Park turned out to be pretty much the perfect place for them.  Not only did we get a lot of green like they wanted we even got lucky and found a big field of bluebonnets, which they seemed pretty excited about.  Amy and Jared were so cute together and I had a great time getting to know them.  Enjoy some of my favorite images from their Engagement Session.

I am so excited to share Sarah & John’s wedding!  They were married this last Saturday at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens.  It was a small and intimate ceremony in the Fuller Gardens that included just them and their family.  The ceremony was beautiful and you could feel all the love they have for each other as they said their vows and were constantly exchanging little looks and smiles to one another.  John’s two daughters, Olivia and Isabella, were the lovely bridesmaids and had big smiles on their faces throughout the whole ceremony.  I have so enjoyed getting to know this amazing couple and their family.  They are a blast to be around and I had a wonderful time with them while photographing their engagement and now their wedding.  Please enjoy some of my favorite images from their wedding day.

Lauren & Darren {Engaged} in Downtown Fort Worth





I was so excited to get to photograph Lauren and Darren.  They are such a wonderful couple who like to laugh and have fun. They met at the University of Texas at Austin and are both talented musicians.  Darren proposed at Lauren’s family Christmas party by tying the ring onto an ornament and of course she said YES!  They will be getting married in Lauren’s hometown of Waco, Tx in November.   Lauren and Darren were a blast to photograph and we had some good laughs along the way.  Please enjoy some of my favorite images from their engagement session.

Audra & Matt {Holiday} Portraits!





Audra & Matt are another one of our couple’s who will be celebrating their first year as a married couple. They were married earlier this year in April, their wedding photographed by Tracy, and when I photographed them last week they were excited because they were hosting Thanksgiving at their house the next day.  I loved that Audra came to me with some fun ideas of using cute holiday signs and for her and Matt to be wrapped in Christmas lights. Here are some of my favorites from their holiday portraits.
