Jenn & Mitch – Wedding Reception at The Warwick Melrose HotelDallas, TX

Man oh man Jenn and Mitch know how to have a good time!  They, along with all of their guests, barely left the dance floor.  The moment (or moments I should say) of the night was when Mitch’s favorite song was being played.  I would have never guessed that “Like a Prayer” by Madonna, would have been it but man was it a hit!  Everyone got into it, so much so that for the encore/last song of the night it was played again!  I’ve never seen so many people get so excited to hear a song.  Everyone, including me, was singing and dancing to it!  It was just a fun day all around!  I am so honored to have been able to capture it. Congratulations to Jenn and Mitch!

Jenn & Mitch – Wedding Ceremony at Holy Trinity Catholic ChurchDallas, TX

What a fun day!  Jenn and Mitch were married at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Dallas.  It was a beautiful ceremony and they both just had the biggest smiles on their faces all the way back up the aisle, so happy to finally be husband and wife.  After the ceremony we had the chance to take the party bus around Dallas for some fun photos!  Jenn and Mitch and their wedding party were such a blast just on the bus, I knew the reception was going to be pretty epic, and I was right!  Check back for their crazy fun dance party!

Laura Jean and Branden – Wedding Reception at Tower ClubDallas, Texas

After they were pronounced husband and wife no time was wasted and we hopped onto the party bus and headed toward the reception.  I always love riding on the bus with the bridal party, there is never a dull moment!  We arrived at Tower Club Dallas and Laura Jean and Branden were introduced and went into their first dance with Downtown Dallas behind them as a perfect backdrop.  The dance floor was packed all night long as everyone enjoyed the music from the Signed Sealed Delivered Band.  Laura Jean and Branden ended the night with a bang dancing and singing on stage with the band!  As the night ended we sent the newlyweds off on their honeymoon through a tunnel of gold pom poms to the elevators.  It was a fun day and I’m so glad that they chose me to capture their special moments!  Congratulations Laura Jean and Branden!

Allison and Logan – Engagement SessionKlyde Warren Park & White Rock Lake - Dallas, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

I am just in love with Allison and Logan’s session!  I had so much fun hanging out with them in Dallas last week.  We started out over at Klyde Warren Park where you get that perfect combination of city and nature.  Allison & Logan met at a bar here in Texas but ended up meeting each other again at a Ranger’s game not long after.  I guess you could say it was meant to be! They now live in Seattle but will be getting married here in McKinney in March.  I loved getting to know this super sweet couple and I cannot wait for their big day!

Ashley & Mike – Wedding Reception at Rosewood Crescent Club Dallas

WeddingCeremonyReceptionCrescentClubCrescentHotelDallasTexasAmandaMcCollumLightlyPhotography-0044

 

After their ceremony we went across the club to their rockin’ reception directed by the fabulous Brian Prescott of Simply Music Events.  Ashley & Mike, along with their families danced their socks off all night long.  I don’t think I remember very many moments when they weren’t on the dance floor.  Now, Mike and his family is from Serbia, so they did several Serbian dances which look like so much fun but so tiring to me! I have loved getting to know Ashley & Mike and having the chance to photograph them on their wedding day.  Congratulations guys! I can’t wait to see what the future brings for you!

Ashley & Mike – Wedding Ceremony at Rosewood Crescent Club

WeddingCeremonyReceptionCrescentClubCrescentHotelDallasTexasAmandaMcCollumLightlyPhotography-0039I’m very excited to share this wedding.  Ashley & Mike are so much fun and every time I have gotten to photograph them has been such a wonderful experience.  We started the day just chilling and getting ready over at the Crescent Hotel.  Ashley was so excited because she had a very special surprise in store for Mike.  She sent a singing telegram to his room before the ceremony who quizzed the bridal party on some Mike Trivia, made him sing his favorite song, Wagon Wheel, and also made some pretty impressive balloon animals.  The ceremony was up in the Crescent Club in front of the beautiful window where we could see the lights of Downtown Dallas.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their getting ready and the ceremony and check back soon for photos from the reception!

Casseday & Kevin {Engaged} in Dallas at White Rock Lake and Private Residence!





Lightly_Photography_by_Sarah_Rizy_Dallas_Engagement_White_Rock_Lake_Dog_Sunset_Nighttime_Downtown

 

I am so excited to share these photos from Casseday and Kevin’s engagement session. Casseday came to me wanting to do something a little different for their session. We started the day at White Rock Lake in an area that she and Kevin frequent quite often with their dog Olsen who they brought along for some photos.  We then went to one of her friends apartments in downtown Dallas that had an amazing view over looking the city. They then ended their session with a cigar and wine by the fire. Here are some of my favorites from their Dallas engagement session.
