Celine & Wesley – Reception at Texas Discovery GardenDallas, Texas

At their reception they had a special family Kimono displayed as well as 1,000 paper cranes that Celine’s mother made for the wedding.  Like I said, the dancing did not disappoint!  As soon as the music was turned up people started dancing!  I enjoyed being able to capture this special day for Celine & Wesley!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their reception.

Caitlin & Eric – Reception at BRIKFort Worth, Texas

We were able to slip outside during dinner for a few minutes to capture some fun photos of just Caitlin and Eric just before sunset. They are seriously so cute!  Instead of a cake, these two chose to serve custard which is a fun twist to the normal tradition.  After their sweet first dance and dinner, the open dancing started and the dance floor stayed packed the whole night.  Here are some of my favorite moments from their reception!

Abbey & Ben – Reception at the Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

After their beautiful ceremony, they headed to the Ashton Depot for their reception.  As the guests arrived to the reception they enjoyed signature cocktails, a mariachi band, hand-rolled cigars, and a picture booth with a beer burro! Inside, the space was transformed with beautiful pink uplighting and lush florals.  Don’t even get me started on the groom’s cake!  Chocolate covered cake balls lined a replica Texas A& M Kyle Field Football Stadium while the brides cake was decorated in pretty pink flowers.  I mean, does it get any better?  The bride and groom entered and went into a fun and sassy dance before a starting a slow dance as their first dance as husband and wife.  As a gift to the father of the bride, the couple brought out a birthday cake and sang to him since his birthday fell on that special day! Then, the dance party got started with a surprise drumline and didn’t stop until the couple left in style in a vintage car.  Check out some of my favorite moments!

I had the pleasure of photographing Ashley & Austin for a Romantics Session here in Fort Worth not too long ago. When Ashley told me about her sweet lace dress and their love for the outdoors, I knew we had to go to Van Zandt Cottage and Trinity Park. I love the fun atmosphere that they create with each other and how that translates through the camera.  And look at Ashley’s smile! That girl can really light up a room. I truly enjoyed my time with these two and I look forward to the next chapter in their life. These are some of my favorites of the day.

Tara & Michael Married at Fort Worth Botanic Gardens

I loved being able to be a part of this intimate ceremony for Tara & Michael at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens. We found a nice quiet spot in the Trial Gardens for them to exchange their vows before we strolled through the other gardens for some great romantic shots. I adore the symbolism that the Trial Gardens brought to the day. It is where all new types of plants are planted to give them a chance to take root before they are transplanted to other locations on the grounds. For me, it is where Tara & Michael took root in their new life together. These are some of the images I enjoy the most from the day.

Justine and David had a rocking party in Dallas. Here we are at a Trinity River lookout between the ceremony and reception.

I always love catching kisses of bride and grooms during the partying. This one between Casseday and Kevin is a fantastic one

Lauren and Devin had a beautiful wedding at Fort Worth Club. Devin is from Louisiana so he brought alot of the Louisiana flair to their reception.

This look between Brooke and Nicholas after they were married is priceless.

MK and Charlie are one probably the only couple that seemed to skip after getting married. I love the joy on their faces here.

 I love how Trevor constantly made each other laugh and how they just enjoyed being goofy together.

Cassie and Billy had a beautiful spring wedding at Mira Vista country club with white flowers and purple accents

Keshia & Jason can’t get close enough to each other during their first dance.

Andrea and Garhett were some fierce dancers at their wedding. They both tore up the dance floor all night long.

This is Janel and Samuel during their first look. I love how Samuel is wiping off Janel’s tears here.

Megan and Samuel had an intimate wedding out at OW Ranch. They chose to invite a small group of their closest friends and family to pledge their love to one another in front of.

Sweet moment between Carson and Megan as he kisses her hand during the first dance.

Tyler and Brian chose to do a first look. This was taken moments after their first look and I love how they can’t take their eyes of one another.

Sabrina and Drake view all their friends and family who came to celebrate their marriage at The Tribute

Katherine and Connor got married in a beautiful night time ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel. Their wedding was in December and I love how she incorporated red into her wedding colors.

Sara and Brad made each other laugh constantly and here they are having fun cutting the cake before smashing it into each other’s faces.

Sarah and Aaron are cracking up at the many embarrassing stories told about them during toasts

Kristin and Brandon enjoyed a private last dance before heading out. They were able to have a moment alone to take in their whole amazing day.

From the cowboy hats all the way down to the bride’s custom made boots, Amy and Jared’s wedding was pure country.

Bailey and Ryan’s wedding was beautifully country chic with all of their fall and rustic inspired details.

Chandler & Will had a December wedding. Incorporating Christmas into their decorations, their wedding was simply beautiful and classic.

Katie and Leo had a blast with all of their family and friends. Their day wouldn’t have been complete without the very fun, big red trolley that took them around throughout the day.

A favorite moment during the ring exchange as D.B. gently touches Lori’s face and gazes into her eyes.

Melanie and Kyle are completely lost in the moment during their first dance.

Riley & James had a very small and intimate ceremony that included only family. It was absolutely perfect.

Sarah and John are so incredibly happy right after saying their vows. They were so excited to become husband and wife.

Tara and Dan had a beautiful outdoor wedding beside a small pond on their property. It was the perfect setting.

Photos our clients love to love {and we love them too!}





 

“I also really liked the one in the courtyard with him wrapping his arms around me from behind, I felt so happy and safe with my husband.” – Jessica

So often when we am photographing we immediately love an image.  We are right in the thick of the emotion and sometimes a photo is what will trigger that memory, moment and feeling forever.  We wanted to take some time out this Valentines Day to share some of our wedding clients favorite images from 2011.  We asked brides to tell us about their favorite images and why they love them.  It was awesome to see what they chose and to hear their kind words and fond memories.  We are excited about all the LOVELY photos we will be taking in the year ahead!

Allison & Joe {Married} Part 2 Romantics and Reception





 

Allison and Joe had some great romantic moments. One of my favorite shots was on a swing that the two of them had made together. Another great moment was during Joe’s toast. Joe is a silly guy, and so he made us all laugh with his jokes. But the thing that stuck out the most to me was when he toasted his bride, Allison. He spoke of her beauty both inside and out. It definitely made me tear up. Here are some of my favorite moments from their day. I hope they are having a blast on their honeymoon!
