Kristen & Preston – Engagement Portraits at Waterfall and Art MuseumsFort Worth, TX

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kristen and Preston.  They are so incredibly precious and I had such a fun time getting to know them and their sweet pups!  Since Preston plays baseball, it gives them the opportunity to travel and go on little adventures to create great memories.  I love how they describe their relationship and how they spend their time together.

“While we are together during the baseball season, we love to find local places to eat as well as fun little trips to trails or beaches. At home in Fort Worth we still spend a lot of time going to our favorite spots to eat and fostering dogs. I did not grow up with dogs in my house so I used to have kind of a superficial understand of dogs and their behavior (good or bad). But now through the work we do and the dogs we meet, I see lots of dogs that open up and love life in the right situation.
We have been to Cabo, Breckenridge, and a cruise through the Caribbean for vacations!” -Preston

“I agree with everything Preston said! I have traveled to over 12 states watching Preston play baseball so we have gotten really good at Yelp. We have found so many fun little places to adventure to. Those are some of the best memories I have with him. We took our dogs to the beach in Michigan one summer. Looking back on it, it is so random but that is what minor league life gives you on an off day. When we are in Fort Worth, Preston is incredible about helping me follow my life long dream to help rescue homeless dogs. He supports the dogs and me in so many ways. He is the best foster dad! We also love a good night with all our dogs, netflix, and a bottle of wine!” – Kristen

I am so excited for their wedding in November.  It is sure to be absolutely amazing!

Lindsay & Keith – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, TX

Lindsay and Keith had their reception at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.  The Modern is absolutely one of my favorite places and their reception was made even more special with some personal touches like Lindsay’s sister and brother-in-law singing their first dance song.

“My sister and brother-in-law (Liz and Parker or “The Double Whiskey Straits”) played our first dance song (Queen’s You’re my best friend) and did a mini-set later on in the night. It was really awesome to continue the sister tradition of choosing a Queen song for a first dance (Liz & Parker had Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls as their first dance) and special because they are so musically talented and it was fun to show em off.”

One thing I always love about the Modern is getting to spend some alone time with my couples in the gallery.  It makes for some amazing photos and some well deserved alone time for Lindsay and Keith.  They were also such troopers by letting me take them outside in the freezing cold to get some photos with the twinkles lights in the trees. The rest of the night was spent catching up with friends and dancing like crazy people on the dance floor.

We had so much fun celebrating with Lindsay, Keith and their families.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their Modern reception.  Congratulations Lindsay and Keith!

Lindsay & Keith – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, TX

I absolutely love this couple.  Lindsay and Keith are so much fun and know how to make you laugh.  A few minutes with them will brighten your day significantly.  Back when I photographed their engagement session they told me the story of how they met and it is one of the best I’ve heard in a long time! Since I would not be able to do their story justice, Lindsay describes it in her own words:

“Keith and I met at orientation for new jobs at RSM in November of 2014 (Keith in cyber security consulting and me in international tax). Keith introduced himself to me by saying “Hi, I’m Keith Swiat. Not to be confused with Keith Sweat, the R&B singer.” It was 8 in the morning and I had no idea who Keith Sweat was. I sat as far away from him as possible at orientation.  Finally, his resilience and my piqued interest led to a friendly lunch outing where all of our interactions culminated in him: 1) forgetting his umbrella and accepting my offer to share 2) him not realizing he should carry it until I pointed out my arm going numb and my calves cramping from standing on my tiptoes to hold it over his head and 3) Keith informing me he felt like an encased meat as he took the first bite of his meatball sub at my favorite lunch spot (Park Italian). I wasn’t quite sure I liked him until I caught him sniffing me in the coffee shop a week later. His boldness and put himself out there attitude is what I really love about him. Our relationship is built on questionable social behavior and both of us having a great sense of humor.”

Let’s be honest, you know you have met the woman you’re going to marry when she catches you sniffing her and finds it charming.  It was love at first sniff.  Anyway, I was so happy that they chose me to photograph their big day and that I had the chance to get to know this amazing couple!

Wendy & Aaron – Engagement Session at Airfield Waterfall and Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, TX

I’ve known Aaron & Wendy for a little while now and I’ve been able to see their relationship grow from the start. With that said, I was super excited when they told me they were engaged and even more excited when they asked me to take their engagement photos. They are a perfect pair! They were great together when adventuring down rock walls and through cold water with me (to get the right shot!), even though it was pretty chilly outside. I am looking forward to photographing them on their wedding day!

Brianna & Ross – Portraits at TCU Campus and Reception at the Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, Texas

Brianna & Ross got married in Hawaii (yes please!) and chose to have a reception here in Fort Worth for friends and family who couldn’t make it.  These two cuties met at TCU, so of course we had to go there to get some photos before the reception.  Let me tell you, these two are troopers!  It was a hot day, and by hot I mean Texas hot but they still walked around campus to get some photos!  We were able to explore the galleries at the Modern Art Museum, which is one of my favorite places here in Fort Worth.  They had a beautiful, candlelight dinner with some toasts and cake cutting to finish up the night.  I am so thankful these two allowed me to be a part of their day!
