Chandler Bridal Portraits – McKinney Cotton MillMcKinney, Texas

Oh my!  Chandler killed this bridal shoot!  Chandler just married her sweetheart a few weeks ago, so now I can post her bridals!  She wore a gorgeous fur shawl that was perfect for her winter wedding which complimented her beautiful gown from Mockingbird Bridal.  Check out a few of my favorite pictures from her session!  The gorgeous flowers were designed by the wonderful Holly Viles.

Amber- Bridal Portrait Session in Grassy Field in Fort Worth

Amber was married earlier this year here in Fort Worth to a very lucky man, Austin. She is incredibly sweet, adorable, and my personal favorite- goofy. I enjoyed our session as it was full of laughter, her reminiscing over her wedding day, and telling me of their future plans as a couple. She loves to have fun and just enjoy a carefree life so her post-wedding bridals had to be in a field full of whimsy and light. Here are some of my favorites from the day.

I had the pleasure of photographing Ashley & Austin for a Romantics Session here in Fort Worth not too long ago. When Ashley told me about her sweet lace dress and their love for the outdoors, I knew we had to go to Van Zandt Cottage and Trinity Park. I love the fun atmosphere that they create with each other and how that translates through the camera.  And look at Ashley’s smile! That girl can really light up a room. I truly enjoyed my time with these two and I look forward to the next chapter in their life. These are some of my favorites of the day.

Heather {Model Bride}at Thistle Hill





I am so excited to be able to share these photos I took earlier in August of Heather. She got married this past weekend at A&M Gardens. We went to Thistle Hill to escape the record temperatures and I loved how her dress from Bliss Bridal Salon looked in the historical home. Here are some of my favorites from her Fort Worth Bridal portrait.

Maria & John a Bridal Session at the Ft. Worth Japanese Gardens





 

Last week I met up with Maria and John for a little nontraditional Bridal session. These two skipped out on tradition and wanted a session with just the two of them before the wedding day in a beautiful location like the Japanese Gardens in Ft. Worth. Maria got her lovely, flowy dress at Bliss Bridal in Ft. Worth. Maria and John will tie the knot next month with a traditional Vietnamese ceremony in the morning, and a rockin reception at night.

I’m so excited to finally share these! Janie & Kelly were married last weekend at the First United Methodist Church in Ft. Worth and then had their reception at YWCA. This gorgeous bride bought her dress at one of my favorite bridal salons, Bliss Bridal. We showed off her fabulous dress at the historic Thistle Hill Mansion. Here are a few of my favorites…stay tuned for their wedding photos!
