Sara and Matt – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at First United Methodist ChurchFort Worth, TX

What a perfect beginning to 2017!  I absolutely adore Sara and Matt and I am so glad that they were my first wedding of the year!  These two Horned Frogs were married at First United Methodist Church in Fort Worth.  Sara and her girls were a hoot during getting ready and it took almost all of them to hold up the front of her dress while putting on her garter.  Once they got Sara in her dress and all ready to go, it was time for her to see her future husband for the first time.  While Matt and I were waiting for Sara to join us in the courtyard, I asked what he thought her dress looked like.  He guessed that it would be big and poofy. He was right!  Sara made an absolutely stunning bride and I think Matt had a little trouble holding back the tears.  When taking in the vision that was his bride, he noticed that a strand of her hair was blue!  Sara says that when she was younger she used to dye her hair blue and so this was a fun way for her to bring that part of her to her wedding day and it was also her something blue!  It may have been a little chilly outside but boy did we have a fun time with all of Sara & Matt’s family and bridal party.  They were having fun making their “fake candid” photos as they liked to call them which made me laugh.  At last it was time to walk down the aisle.  Sara was escorted down the aisle by her sweet daddy and he gave her away to Matt.  They exchanged beautiful vows and officially became husband and wife!  It brings me so much joy to be able to share these images with everyone and show the love and happiness that this couple and their families possess.  Please check back soon for the rockin’ reception!

Elizabeth & Carlos-Wedding ReceptionWedding Reception at Fort Worth Club

Lightly Photography 2016There are some many different aspects of the wedding day that I just love. I love the emotion of the first part of the day where tears flow while getting dressed or seeing each other for the first time or saying the vows that make you man and wife. But I absolutely adore the reception when everyone can cut loose and everyone dances with anyone. Whether they’ve know each other their whole lives or met for the first time that night. Elizabeth and Carlos reception was one where everyone was instantly family.  I loved stealing Elizabeth and Carlos away for a few stolen moments in the middle of their reception and my favorite photo from the day is above from their hallway smooches.

Elizabeth & Carlos-Wedding CeremonyCeremony at First United Methodist Church

Lightly Photography 2016

I absolutely adore first looks and Elizabeth and Carlos’s first look is one I will always treasure. Carlos smile was so massive when he saw Elizabeth you couldn’t help but grin and I loved how Elizabeth teared up when Carlos turned around to see her. They then had a beautiful intimate ceremony at First United Methodist Church in their chapel. Here are some of my favorites from the first part of their day.

Kristin and Woody – Wedding Ceremony at First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.comWhat a way to end the year!  I have been so excited for Kristin and Woody’s wedding and it proved to be the icing on top of an amazing year.  You could tell during getting ready that both Kristin and Woody were so anxious to finally see each other.  Kristin sent a little gift over to Woody before the ceremony and since Woody knows how much Kristin absolutely hates guns, he was totally surprised when he went to open his gift to find one.  Kristin told me that she hates guns so much that should couldn’t event touch the one she bought for him. They were married that evening at The First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth.   During the ceremony they exchanged vows they had written themselves and you could just feel their love for one another and I do believe that I teared up a little bit behind the camera.  I love feeling so connected to a couple that I am able to get emotional right along with them.  They are such a beautiful couple and I couldn’t be happier to have had the privilege of photographing their day.  Check back soon for their gorgeous reception at City Club Fort Worth!

Sabrina & Drake {Engaged} at Dallas Arboretum and Arts District!

I spent a beautiful afternoon in Dallas recently with Sabrina and Drake walking around the Arboretum and the Dallas Arts District. It is the perfect time of year when the leaves are changing colors and it’s not too cold or hot. Sabrina and Drake chose to have part of their session in the Arts District since the church her parents and grandparents got married in was right downtown. We of course had to do some photos in front of their church to honor her family. Here are some of my favorites from their Dallas engagement session.
