Celine & Wesley Engagement – Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, TX

These two made the drive from west Texas to do this morning session!  We went to the Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake for some nature which is perfect since they will be saying “I Do” at the Texas Discovery Garden.   These two met at Texas Tech and wore their jersey’s for the second part of their session.  How fun!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their session!

Sarah & Matthew – First Look & Ceremony at the Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

I had the opportunity to get to know these two during their engagement session a few months back in Dallas.  Engagement sessions are a great time for me to get to know my couples, how they met, and what they do for fun but during their session they kept asking questions about ME!  This blew me away and was just the start of getting to know their sweet and generous characters.  I knew their wedding day would be one full of laughter and joy!  These two chose to do a first look in one of the gardens at the Arboretum, and it was nothing short of great!  We had a lot of fun snapping some pictures before the wedding around some of the pretty places in the Arboretum.  They said “I Do” under a beautiful arbor decorated with flowers that one of their dad’s made.  The sun setting, the arbor, and the lush garden set the scene for their happy ceremony.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Janey and Collin – Engagement Session at Dallas Arboretum and White Rock LakeDallas, TX

With all of the threat of rain and having to reschedule once before, I was a little worried we would have to postpone again!  Luckily everything cleared and up and I met up with Janey and Collin at the Arboretum and it was a beautiful day!  I loved getting to hang out with these two.  They are the cutest and so incredibly happy.  It is a difficult thing not to smile when you are around them! Their love and happiness is definitely infections, my face hurt after their session from all of the smiling!  After the Arboretum, we headed over to White Rock Lake which is where Collin proposed to Janey when he told her that he wanted to take her to look at a sailboat.  Janey and Collin are a genuinely sweet couple and I am beyond excited to photograph their wedding this September!

Stephanie and Patrick – Engagement Session at The Dallas Arboretum and White Rock LakeDallas, TX

I am so excited to share Stephanie and Patrick’s engagement session!  I met up with these two at the Dallas Arboretum for the first part of their session.  We thought we were going to have bad weather, but luckily the sun started to pop out as we started and it was absolutely gorgeous by the time we got to the lake.  Stephanie is a TCU Horned Frog like me and Patrick has just moved here to Texas from New York, and I have never been so aware of how many times I say the word, Y’all.  I love when I can joke and poke fun with my couples.  It makes everything just a little bit more fun!  Stephanie and Patrick will be getting married in September and I can’t wait!

Last week I got to spend the early hours of the morning with Melissa and Cody!  These two are troopers.  Not only did they both travel from different cities but they also got up at the crack of dawn (8:00 is the crack of dawn to me) for their session.  It may have been quite early, but man did it feel fabulous outside!  Being around Melissa and Cody, you can just tell how they are meant for each other!  They will be getting married in June at The Orchard and it is going to be one amazing day!  Can’t wait!

Laura Jean and Branden – Engagement SessionDallas Arboretum & White Rock Lake - Dallas, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

I had so much fun hanging out with Laura Jean and Branden last week.  With all the weird weather we’ve been having lately you just never know what each day will bring, but this day turned out to be gorgeous.  We met up at the Dallas Arboretum which is where Branden proposed to Laura Jean!  We re-visited the exact spot and were able to get some great reflection photos!  I loved getting to know them as a couple and watching them interact.  Branden is so good at making Laura Jean laugh, it was totally infectious and I found myself laughing right along with them even though I had no idea what he was saying to her.  We then headed out to White Rock Lake where they just continued to be their cute selves and started acting goofy and adorable.  I absolutely loved it!  It makes me so happy to see and photograph such blissfully happy couples!  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their Dallas engagement session!

Alyssa and Blake – Engaged at Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightlyphoto.comI am so excited to share this engagement session.  I met up with Alyssa and Blake in Dallas at the Arboretum where it turned out to be a gorgeous day at the end of a stormy week.  I love the chemistry between these two and how sweet they are together.  I love when couples are as excited as Alyssa and Blake were to have their engagements done.  Alyssa was just cracking me up with how much more excited she was getting the longer the session went.  She even told me that their goal was to make it onto our website.  I think they will probably achieve that goal!  I am so excited to be photographing their wedding in October at the beautiful Ashton Depot!

Kacie & Justin- Dallas Engagement at Arboretum & White Rock Lake

As I have said before I always love finding connections between me and my couples. Kacie brought one of her bridesmaids to her meeting and I had gone to a very small private elementary school with two of her bridesmaids. I met Kacie and Justin out in Dallas last week and had fun with them at the Arboretum and by white rock lake. They brought their two dogs Kirby and Sam. Here are some of my favorites from our Dallas engagement session.

Melissa & Wes-Engagement at Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake

It was such a pleasure for me to get to know Melissa & Wes.  We started our session at the Dallas Arboretum and then headed to White Rock Lake. They are getting married next year in a destination wedding in Puerto Rico so I wanted to incorporate water into the session. We also had fun playing with bubbles.  Here are some of my favorites from their Dallas engagement session.

Murphy Family – Scott, Trish, Finley & Eden at The Dallas Arboretum

I am always excited to see the Murphy’s!  I have gotten to follow this crew from marriage to twin little babes to now some very big 2 year olds!  Eden and Finley are perfect in every way and SO 2 that I am proud of these parents for keeping up with such energetic kiddo’s.  2 is a magical age (I really mean it) because they grow so much in their understanding.  I have loved 2 with my son Alex and I know this family has a great year in store for them.  Thanks for trusting me again to capture your little ones and your changing lives.  Love you guys!
