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!

RoseAnn & Ross – Wedding Reception at The Renaissance WorthingtonFort Worth, TX

RoseAnn and Ross are now husband and wife and it is time to party!  After the ceremony all of their family and bridal party greeted and congratulated them while guests cleared the chapel.  We had some time for Ross and RoseAnn to be alone for the first time as a married couple and then it was on to the reception!  They had a few more special moments up their sleeves for the reception.  RoseAnn changed into her special red boots and her daddy helped her put them on before going into their father daughter dance.  Ross and his mom then shared a dance together and RoseAnn reserved a special dance with her brother.  I just love how close they all are!  Ross had a cake shaped like the Ole’ Miss football field and it was fun to hear them scream their chant.  Guests enjoyed dancing all night to the musical talents of It’s Your Night Entertainment’s Jeremiah Brinckley.  Not only is he a fabulous DJ, but he sings too!!  It was a fabulous night but all good things must come to an end.  While all of their family and friends gathered in the hall to see them off, Ross and RoseAnn shared one last private dance together.  They then were sent off to their honeymoon through a tunnel of shimmering red pom poms!  Congratulations to RoseAnn and Ross!

RoseAnn & Ross – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, TX

It seems like just yesterday that I was meeting RoseAnn and taking her bridal portraits, and now she is married!  When I first talked with RoseAnn about her wedding day and her plans, she told me about how she is very sentimental and about the meaningful things that would be happening.  I, also being a very sentimental person, got really excited.  RoseAnn is very close with her family and so she had many things at her wedding that had special meaning to her and different family members. Her shoes were her wedding colors and had their names and wedding date printed on the inside. She wore her grandmother’s jewelry.  Her brother gave her a beautiful charm bracelet that he placed on her wrist before they left for the church.  As she walked down the aisle arm in arm with her dad, she held a bouquet of yellow roses because her dad calls her “his yellow rose of Texas”.  How sweet is all of that?    Don’t worry!  She didn’t leave her new hubby out.  She had a brand new perfume specifically for her wedding day and anniversaries that she wore.  They say that you can associate memories with certain smells and what better way to remind you of your wedding day than a new scent?  She also wrote Ross a letter that he read right before the ceremony that he can always have and look back on.  I could go on and on but I think I’ll let the photos finish telling the story from here.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their special day and check back soon for their reception!

Caitlin & Eric – Getting Ready and Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, Texas

I had the chance to get to know Caitlin during her bridals (stay tuned for those!) and knew that whoever she was marrying had to be as sweet as she was.  Caitlin & Eric met at work, and they really are such a great couple together.  They chose to do a first look outside at BRIK and Eric’s reaction is priceless!  We took some fun wedding party photos at BRIK before heading over to Robert Carr Chapel for the couple to say “I Do.”  Check out some of my favorite moments from the beginning of their day!

Kelly & Chris – Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel Reception at Historic 512Fort Worth, Texas

Kelly and Chris are as sweet as they come.  This day was filled with so many special moments with friends and family.  Kelly’s father walked her down the aisle at the beautiful Robert Carr Chapel and you can just see the look of love on Chris’ face!  Their reception was held at the Historic 512 and featured a fun swing band.  There was not a single dry eye in the venue after Kelly’s father gave a toast welcoming Chris into the family!  Thanks for letting me capture your sweet day!

Natalie and Robert – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, TX

After the ceremony everyone headed over to Fort Worth Club for the reception.  Robert’s brother and Natalie’s sister gave some very sweet toasts about the kind of amazing people that Natalie and Robert are and you could definitely feel how much love they all have for one another.  After toasts it was time to party,  and what a party it was!  Thanks to the musical talents of the Limelight band,  the dance floor was constantly full.  And who knew that Robert could dance like that?  I sure didn’t!  These two, along with all of the friends and family, danced up a storm and had an absolute blast.  I am so sad that their day has come and gone, but I am so excited to be able to share their day with everyone.  I cannot wait to see what the future holds for these two.  Thanks for letting me part of your special day! Congratulations to Natalie & Robert!

Natalie and Robert – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel at TCUFort Worth, TX

I don’t think that I can truly describe the amount of emotion that Natalie and Robert’s big day actually had.  Not only for them and their families but for me as well!  I’ll just give you a hint by saying how excited I have been all year to photograph their engagements, then Natalie’s bridal and finally their wedding!  I was tearing up and full of emotion all day and then incredibly sad when it was over.  Now I am getting excited all over again because I get to share their amazing photos with the world!  Natalie and Robert are the kind of people that when you meet them, you are automatically friends.  I can’t tell you how happy it made me to talk to Natalie on the phone or through e-mail throughout the process of planning her wedding.  They both have this way of making everyone feel so special and loved, which made my job incredibly easy and more fun than it already is.  Natalie had the biggest smile on her face from the moment I arrived (and I’m sure before) to the moment they rode away in the carriage at the end of the night.  I know it was so hard for both of them to have to wait all day for the ceremony.  They both were so overcome with emotion, just waiting to finally get to see each other and become husband and wife.  Before the ceremony, the exchanged letters around a door.  As I placed Robert behind the door and told him I was going to get Natalie, he began to tear up knowing it was just minutes before he’d get to see her walk down the aisle.  As they finished reading each other’s notes, Natalie just started jumping up and down grinning ear to ear, so excited that the moment had finally arrived.  I don’t think I’ll ever forget the pure joy that was felt during their entire ceremony.  Afterward as they walked back up the aisle and out the chapel doors they just beamed at each other, jumping up and down, kissing, hugging and showing off their rings.  I cannot fully express how excited I am for these two.  Please enjoy my favorites from their Robert Carr ceremony and check back soon for their fun reception at The Fort Worth Club!

Diana & Kylan – First Look and Wedding at University Christian ChurchFort Worth, Texas

Diana & Kylan got married on a chilly winter day at the beautiful University Christian Church.  These two met while Kylan was finishing up Grad School at TCU so of course we had to take some photos on campus.  I had a great time getting to know this couple before their wedding and was excited that their day had finally come!  Diana looked stunning in her dress surrounded by her girls who wore gorgeous purple dresses.  Check out some of my favorite moments!

Diana & Kylan – Engagement SessionTCU Campus & Bass Hall

I had the pleasure of photographing Diana’s bridal before her engagement, so I knew I would have a great time getting to know her special guy, Kylan.  These two met at TCU so of course we had to take some photos on campus.  We had some beautiful weather and were able to snap some photos with their sweet pups, Dottie and Dash.  After, we went to the Bass Hall that was beautifully decorated for Christmas.  Diana wore a gorgeous red dress the complimented her surroundings.  I can’t wait for their wedding!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their session.

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

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

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!
