Rachel & Jonathan – Wedding at Chandor GardensWeatherford, TX

Rachel and Jonathan had a beautiful, sunny day perfect for their Alice in Wonderland themed wedding!  They had a small and intimate wedding and reception at Chandor Gardens out in Weatherford and it was the perfect setting for what they were wanting.  Not only was the weather, day and location perfect but this sweet new family had so much beautiful emotion, I couldn’t help but tear up myself!  During the ceremony, Rachel and Jonathan both said vows to each other’s children and it was just the sweetest thing.  I loved witnessing this new family being formed.  After the ceremony we had the chance to go around the gardens for some fun photos where we got to get a little bit wet under the waterfall! I think some of my favorite moments (besides the vows) happened during the daddy daughter dances.  Rachel and her dad & Jonathan and his daughter.  Together with all of their closest friends and family, Rachel and Jonathan celebrated their marriage and their new family and when the night came to an end, the exited through a tunnel of sparklers underneath hanging teacups that decorated the pathway.  Congratulations Rachel and Jonathan!!

Leslie and Nick – Engagement Session at Chandor Gardens

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightlyphoto.com

I had so much fun photography Leslie and Nick for their engagement session. It was such a gorgeous day and the lighting was amazing it just made me such a happy photographer. These two are so silly and goofy and I love it!  I think at first they were a little camera shy (who isn’t?) but they soon broke out of their shell, especially for the second part of the day where they decided to something just a little different and throw powdered paint at each other.  It was the cutest thing and they really showed their true colors (pun intended).  I really had so much fun photographing Leslie and Nick and am really looking forward to their wedding in June!

Amy and Brian – Engagement Session at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford

I met up with Amy and Brian out in Weatherford at Chandor Gardens last week for their engagement session.  It’s always so fun when I can spend the whole time laughing and joking with my couples.  I love being able to have them be sarcastic with me and me with them.  I don’t know why but I think it makes the session just a little more fun!  I loved that Brian would give me a hard time and then Amy would just roll her eyes.  They were too cute and just so much fun to hang out with.  I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this coming October!  Check out some of my favorite photos from their Weatherford engagement session.

Bridal Portraits Chandor Gardens Bridal Blooms Amanda McCollum Lightly Photography Courtney-0009Oh boy oh boy!  This beautiful bride was married this past Saturday and so that means I get to finally share her gorgeous bridal portraits!  I absolutely love Chandor Gardens and Courtney’s dress just fit the location perfectly. I feel like she should be the cover of some sort of novel!  The whole look was completed with the pop of color from her beautiful cascading bouquet full of her favorite flowers, daisy’s,  by Kelly Norvell of Bridal Blooms.  I also wanted to share a few images from their wedding this past weekend since I will be heading out of town this week.  Please enjoy and check back soon for the rest of their beautiful wedding!

Andrea and Cole – Engagement Session at Chandor Gardens and Grassy Fields

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.comOh my gosh, how I loved this session and this couple! Not only were Andrea and Cole troopers through the muggy heat, but they were so cute and sweet with each other the whole time.  I love when couples take what I ask them to do and then make it their own.  There were a few times when I would catch Andrea peeking over at Cole to make sure he was smiling and those turned out to be a few of my favorite images!  Talk about a dream couple to photograph.   I had such a great time photographing these two beautiful people in two beautiful locations.  I can’t wait until their wedding day next March!  Please enjoy a few of my favorite images from their engagement session.

Mr. & Mrs. Levi Stowe – Wedding at Chandor Gardens, Weatherford, TX





Last weekend was Kelly & Levi’s North Texas Wedding out at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford.   We were very nervous about the storms that were coming through that day and that it would rain on Kelly’s dream day. We got very blessed and it rained for only a bit prior to the ceremony. The ceremony was held on the Bowling Green at the gardens and followed by a rocking indoors reception with entertainment provided by Phil Hamilton and the Backroad Drifters.

Kelly and Levi are such an adorable couple and my favorite part of the day was seeing how excited they got when they saw each other for the first time as Kelly walked down the aisle. Levi appreciated how amazing Kelly looked  in her dress from Bliss Bridal .  Here are some of my favorites from their day.
