Leah & Grant – Ceremony at St. Patrick CathedralFort Worth, Texas

Leah and Grant got married on a very chilly winter day!  I had a chance to get to know this couple before the wedding during their engagement session, and was anticipating this wedding!  Leah and Grant are incredibly sweet together and even better… they are Aggies! Whoop!  They tied the knot at the beautiful St. Patrick Cathedral in downtown Fort Worth surrounded by friends and family and then headed to the City Club for their reception!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Marisa & Lance – First Look & Ceremony at the Marquis on MagnoliaFort Worth, Texas

This wedding was unique in that it completely took place in the Fairmount neighborhood which happens to be where our office is located as well as where I live!  This couple wanted to use local vendors and even had guests stay in local airbnb homes to get the full experience. Preparations for the day started at their adorable historic home surrounded by friends and their cute cats.  Before the ceremony they did a first look on the front porch and then we hung around for more pictures.  One of my favorite images from the day is when one of their cats photo bombed them!  He wanted to be a part of the day too!

Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Emily and Tyler are genuinely some of the nicest people I have met.  Their story is sweet, special, and uniquely theirs.  One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to know my couples stories and sharing in their excitement about their big day.  The day was filled with love as they surrounded themselves with friends and family from near and far.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Daniella & Stephen – Getting Ready and First Look at the Worthington HotelFort Worth, Texas

Get ready folks for the cutest couple!  Daniella and Stephen are not only adorable together, but they are some of the sweetest people.  These two currently live in New York (yes please!) but chose to get married at St. Patrick Cathedral with a reception at the Ashton Depot!  These two got ready at the Worthington Hotel and chose to have their first look on the rooftop before the ceremony.  Let me tell you, I don’t think any of us had dry eyes!  We also had the opportunity to take a pit stop at the Kimbell Art Museum for some fun wedding party photos!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Celine & Wesley – Ceremony at Texas Discovery GardenDallas, Texas

I had the pleasure of getting to know Celine and Wesley at their engagement session and was super excited for their big day!  They got married in front of the fountain at the Texas Discovery Gardens with gorgeous evening light streaming through the trees.  Celine is from Hawaii so there were fun little hints of Hawaii throughout their day.  Their wedding party was definitely a fun group and I had a feeling it would be a dancing crowd.  They didn’t disappoint!  Stay tuned for their reception!

I have a special place in my heart for Aggies, and let me tell you, there were a lot of Aggies at this wedding!  Abbey’s eyes lit up when she talked about how her and Ben met in College Station and about how much she loves him.  Their first look was filled with smiles and total sweetness!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

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!

Shelby & Clifton – Ceremony at St. Patrick’s CathedralFort Worth Wedding

From the first time I met Shelby I knew I would enjoy photographing this wedding.  Shelby and Clifton grew up around Fort Worth and have known each other for quite a while.  They both attended A&M (Whoop!) and had many aggies in attendance.   The ladies got ready at the wonderful Brik Venue (speaking of Brik, check out some of her gorgeous bridal portraits here!) and then we headed to St. Patrick’s Cathedral for the ceremony.  Shelby chose some gorgeous colors for the wedding and the bridesmaids wore long beaded gowns that complimented Shelby in her dress.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Lauren & Tyson – Wedding Ceremony at The Fort Worth Club


Lauren & Tyson were married this past weekend at The Fort Worth Club.  They currently live in New York but wanted to celebrate their marriage here in Texas.  Their ceremony was full of beautiful moments of tears and giggles and laughter.  It was made even more special because it was officiated by not only their good friend but he is also the man who introduced them.  I know that Lauren & Tyson were so happy to share their love with all of their friends and family who were able to attend.  It was a beautiful ceremony that transitioned into a crazy fun party.  Check back for some of my favorites from their hoppin’ reception.
