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!

Brittney and Cory – Engagement Session at White Rock Lake and Klyde Warren Park in Dallas

Lightly Photography 2015 http://lightllyphoto.com

Every year there is that one couple that gets the bad weather curse and must reschedule multiple times.  Well unfortunately that was the case with Brittney and Cory, but luckily the nasty Texas winter and rain stopped long enough for us to finally get to do their engagement session last week!  We met up at White Rock Lake and I got to meet Brittney’s son Brody for the first time.  Brody is the cutest kid and so incredibly goofy.  He did not appreciate me asking his mom and Cory to kiss.  He absolutely loves their dog Layla and I’ve heard that he loves to dance so I can’t wait to witness that on their wedding day.  I love that Brittney and Cory brought Brody because I think it is so important to have photos documenting becoming a family.  And what a cute little family they are too!  They are so sweet with one another and I can’t wait for their wedding next month.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their Dallas engagement session.

Jenna & Jonathan Wedding at Bella Donna Chapel and Stonebridge Ranch Country Club

 

 

Jenna & Jonathan were married this past weekend at the beautiful Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney.  They had just recently taken a trip to Israel and were actually officially married there first but still wanted their friends and family to be able to be part of their day.  We then moved on to Stonebridge Ranch Country Club for the reception, where they enjoyed getting to talk with their guests and also do some dancing!  Please take a look at some of my favorites from their beautiful wedding.

Amy & Matt Engagement at Fair Park and White Rock Lake in Dallas

I had so much fun last week hanging out with Amy & Matt for their Dallas Engagement Session. We started out in the Fair Park area and then went to White Rock Lake near their home where they like to take walks.  I am so excited about their wedding this upcoming October. It will b e down in the hill country and it’s always fun to be somewhere new and different. Here are some of my favorites.

Stephanie, Robert, Rivers & Haskell at Cedar Hill State Park





Stephanie & Robert are some of our past wedding clients who came back for us for their family portraits this fall. Being a huge dog person myself I love that they wanted to include their dogs Rivers and Haskell in the family portraits. They decided to have them done at Cedar Hill State park which is an amazing park where Robert works. Here are some of my favorites from their family session.

Tessa & Lance Married at Paradise Cove!





Tessa and Lance were married recently in a beautiful ceremony at Paradise Cove in Southlake.  While we are used to Texas heat, this past weekend it was 10 degrees hotter than normal this time of year. Luckily being by the lake gave us a nice breeze.  I met Tessa and Lance about a year ago and could not wait for their wedding. One of my favorite things about them is the nickname Tessa has for Lance is “Pants.” The day was complete with many of the details handmade by Tessa and the flowers provided by A Rose in Bloom.  The reception was kept rocking by a classic rock band Long Shot but for their first dance and the parent dances Tessa and Lance had their close friends sing for them. Here are some of my favorites from their Southlake Wedding.

Scott Family – A Fort Worth portrait at Eagle Mountain Park

I met up with the Scott Family this past weekend at Eagle Mountain Park in north Fort Worth.  Lana & Michael’s kids are all grown up but soon Johnathan, Jeremy and Julianne will be getting married and the family will grow so Lana wanted to capture them as a group before the next stage of their lives.  I had so much fun getting to know them and hope that I get to capture some moments in the future with them (like when they all get married….in a very long time from now.)  🙂

Here are a few favorites of their Fort Worth Family Portraits and a big THANK YOU to Lana for scouting out this location and even going to check on it and look at lighting before our session.  A++ for excellent location scouting for the the Scott family!
