Lauren & CJ – Engagement Session at Japanese Gardens and TCUFort Worth, TX

I cannot get over how adorable Lauren and CJ are!!  From the moment I met with them I knew they were going to be a blast to photograph.  Lauren and CJ are both TCU alum and Lauren was a Showgirl at TCU, so of course we had to hit up campus for one of their locations! Being a TCU grad myself, I always love having a chance to go back to campus and talk about “the good ole days” with my couples.  These two are so precious and have such amazing chemistry, I couldn’t decide on which images to show!   Lauren and CJ  will be getting married next year at Classic Oaks and I cannot wait!

Lindsay and Keith – Engagement Portraits at Japanese Gardens and Kimbell Art MuseumFort Worth, TX

I love it when couples are not shy or afraid to be themselves in front of the camera!  It’s a hard thing to do but Lindsay and Keith nailed it!  They currently live in New York City but are getting married here in Fort Worth so we had a chance to do their engagement photos while they were in town.  I love that Keith wore the same suit that he wore on their first date.  I think it makes the photos that much more meaningful.  Lindsay and Keith cracked me up.  It is always a blast when we can all just joke around and laugh together, like when I caught Keith smelling Lindsay’s hair which is apparently an inside joke that has to do with one of their first dates.  I don’t know that I’m going to be able to let go of that one and will probably mention it and use it on their wedding day haha!  I am so excited for their big day in December.  It is going to be so much fun! Please enjoy some of my favorites from their Fort Worth engagement session.

Sara – Bridal Portraits at the Japanese GardensFort Worth, TX

I am so excited to finally share Sara’s bridal portraits!  Sara was married this past weekend and was an absolutely stunning bride.  She wore lace sleeves over her gown for her church ceremony and removed them for the reception.  I love trains, and Sara’s train was so much fun to work with!  Check back soon for her gorgeous wedding photos!

Kendall and Kyle – Engagement SessionTCU and Japanese Gardens - Fort Worth, TX

I am super excited to share this engagement session!  We all know I get really excited for my TCU couples and when I get to photograph them on campus.  But I don’t often get to photograph on the field when it is prepped for game day!  Kendall and Kyle are TCU alumni like myself and flew in from Oregon for the game and to have their engagement photos done.  I loved getting to hang out with them and talk about our days at TCU.  It turns out that I was in a few classes with Kyle’s older sister!  Small world!  I so wish I was able to photograph their wedding, but unfortunately for me they will not be getting married here.  Congratulations Kendall and Kyle!

I am excited to share Katie and Cantey’s engagement photos!  It was a beautiful day and we began over in the Japanese Gardens and then headed over to the Kimbell Art Museum.  After all of the rain we’ve had, everything was beautifully green and it was not too warm out.  I love days like this.  Katie and Cantey were just too cute and their wedding is going to be so much fun!  They will be getting married in October at a little chapel on Cantey’s parent’s property.  I absolutely cannot wait for their wedding day!

Sara & Robert Engagement at Japanese Gardens & T&P Station

Lightly Photography 2015

I am so excited to share these photos from Sara & Robert’s session last week in Fort Worth. we were finally able to meet up after rescheduling due to the crazy weather we have been having and were blessed with clear skies.  I always love engagement sessions and learning their story. One of my favorite things I learned on their session was that the ring Robert proposed with has been made over several generations with some of the stones dating back to his great grandfather. Here are some of my favorite photos from their Fort Worth Session.

Sarah and Patrick – Engagement Session at Japanese Gardens and Downtown Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.comI am excited to share this engagement session!  Sarah and Patrick are some of the sweetest people and it was so much fun to get to run around Fort Worth with them last week.  We started out at the Japanese gardens where the leaves have turned a beautiful shade of red, perfect for some fall portraits.  It was just too cute when Sarah got really excited when she learned that she would get to hug and kiss on Patrick throughout the entire session.  Sarah and Patrick met at TCU’s “Frog Camp”, where incoming freshmen go before starting school to meet other students and get to do some really cool activities.  Although, they did not start dating until just a couple of years ago.  I am so excited to get to work with them, especially because I am also getting to photograph Sarah’s brother’s wedding in January.  I absolutely love getting to photograph multiple weddings within one family.  I cannot wait for these guys to tie the knot in June!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Lauren and Clint – Day After Session at T&P Station and Fort Worth Japanese Gardens

Lightly Photography 2014 http://lightllyphoto.comDay after sessions are so much fun!  In this case it was more like a month after but I loved getting to hang out with Lauren and Clint again!  They were married in October and their reception was at T&P station, so we went back and did some photos when the building was empty.  They brought a couple of suitcases as props which I loved and thought was super cute, kind of like they were waiting on the train to leave on their honeymoon.  I wish more couples would do day after sessions.  How often do you get to wear your wedding dress after your wedding?  Anyway, I’m so excited to share these photos and hope everyone enjoys them!

He surprised her when she was touring their old school one day and got down on one knee in their old gym. Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session.
