Sara – Bridal Portraits at the Japanese GardensFort Worth, TX

I am so excited to finally share Sara’s bridal portraits!  Sara was married this past weekend and was an absolutely stunning bride.  She wore lace sleeves over her gown for her church ceremony and removed them for the reception.  I love trains, and Sara’s train was so much fun to work with!  Check back soon for her gorgeous wedding photos!

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!

Baby Mia is Sitting Up!Botanic Gardens of Fort Worth

Sweet little Mia is sitting up! Look at how precious she is!  Now, I am a little partial as I have been good friends with her Daddy for over 15 years now but still – look at that smile!  I love big toothy grins and she is working on a perfect one.  Mia is pretty in pink but just as adorable in her Star Wars dress!  For all you nerds out there this star wars layette dress is where it is at!  A must have for any future jedi princess.  🙂

After Bryanna and Charles emotion filled ceremony we went around the garden for some romantic portraits before heading over to the Chateau of Forest Park where Bryanna and Charles made sure they greeted every guest. Here are some of my favorites from the second part of their day.

Bryanna & Charles-Wedding CeremonyCeremony at Fort Worth Botanic Gardens

Lightly Photography 2016

I just absolutely adored Bryanna & Charles wedding day. They had one of my favorite around the corner note exchanges I have ever seen. They both teared up as they read each other’s letters and when Bryanna opened her gift from Charles the tears really started to flow. They kept saying how they wanted to kiss each other from around the corner so at their ceremony they couldn’t wait and right as Bryanna and Charles had joined arms they immediately went into the that kiss. Here are some of my favorites from the first part of their day.

Natalie & Robert – Engagement SessionDowntown Fort Worth and Botanic Gardens - Fort Worth, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

I am so excited to share Natalie and Robert’s engagement session!  Goodness gracious these two could be models.  They were worried about being awkward, but they couldn’t have been more natural in front of the camera!  They absolutely nailed it.  Natalie and Robert have known each other for quite a while.  They met in high school but started dating in college.  They have amazing chemistry and you can just feel it when you’re around them and you can’t help but smile. I had so much fun hanging out with them downtown and at the gardens! I cannot wait to photograph their wedding next year!

Katherine and Ryan – Engagement SessionTrinity Park and Botanic Gardens - Fort Worth, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

I say this all of the time and this time is definitely no different that I LOVE my couples.  I had so much fun with Katherine, Ryan and their two dogs, Pedro and Julio.  We had a ton of laughs trying to get Pedro and Julio to cooperate.  They just did not want to have their picture taken and would turn their backs to me or roll over ever chance they got.  It was so funny.  I’m sure I sounded ridiculous making all of these sounds trying to get their attention, but you gotta do what you gotta do.  Katherine and Ryan are such a great match.  I loved getting to joke and laugh with them throughout their session.  They were cracking me up!  Ryan kept trying to go into some GQ like poses so of course I had to do at least one set up for him.  They were being so cute just having fun and laughing together the whole time.  Thanks guys for letting me photograph your engagements!

Kailey & Sam-Engagement SessionFort Worth, TX at Stockyards and Botanic Gardens

Lightly Photography 2016

I loved getting to spend some time with Kailey and Sam before their September wedding. We started their session in the Fort Worth Stockyards where they had dinner on the night they got engaged. We then went to the gardens and it was so nice bc we practically had the place to ourselves. Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session.

Ellis Turns 3!

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightllyphoto.comSweet Ellis turned three this year, so of course we had to take some photos to show off how much she has grown since last year!  She has quite the personality!  She explored in the Botanic Gardens in Fort Worth, looked at flowers, and even played in some water.  She had an opinion on each outfit, but loved her hot pink tights the most.  We loved getting to photograph this sweet girl.  Happy Birthday Ellis!
