Janey & Collin – Wedding Reception at The Carlisle RoomDallas, TX

After the ceremony everyone headed down to the Carlisle Room for the reception.  Janey and Collin shared their first dance and then Janey and her dad shared a sweet father daughter dance together.  Then it was time for the party to start!  Janey and Collin were able to spend the evening dancing and chatting with the people who mean the most to them.  They even had a big group of friends gathered on the dance floor watching the last bit of the UT game on an iphone!  There were some happy Longhorns on that dance floor and I think the fight song was played about 3 or 4 times.  At the end of the night Janey and Collin shared a private last dance and enjoyed a little time alone in their reception room just soaking up the day.  We then sent them on their way through a tunnel of sparklers!  It was a beautiful and perfect day and I am so grateful that they chose me to capture it and spend the day with them.  Congrats Janey and Collin!

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.

Kelly & Chris – Engagement Session at the Botanic Garden and Downtown Fort WorthFort Worth, TX

I loved getting to know Kelly and Chris during their engagement session.  These two met at church here in Fort Worth and love biking and being out in nature.  We chose the Botanic Garden to take some photos and then headed over to the water gardens.  They tie the knot this summer at the Historic 512 (also known as the YWCA).  Can’t wait!  Here are a few of my favorites from their session.

Cati & Jeff – Ceremony & Reception at MopacFort Worth, Texas

From the beginning it was made known to me that Cati shared a special bond with her sisters (known as the Hall Girls).   Their parents are no longer with them, but let me tell you, that did not put a damper on this day.  These girls share a huge bond, and it was such a sweet moment when her sisters walked Cati down the aisle.  Cati & Jeff said “I Do” at Mopac Event Center which is a venue that opened last year.  Here are some of my favorite moments from their day!

Allison and Logan – Wedding Reception at Piazza on the GreenMcKinney, TX

And the magic continues!!  Allison and Logan were introduced into their reception and went straight into their first dance as husband and wife.  Sticking with this Disney theme that we’ve started, it was like the ballroom scene right out of Beauty & The Beast with all of the warm lighting and chandeliers.  A true fairy tale moment!  They danced all night long and at one point Logan and his groomsmen did a surprise dance to the YMCA.  It was truly an enchanting night and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple.  Thanks Allison and Logan for choosing me to capture your special day!

Allison and Logan – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Piazza on the GreenMcKinney, TX

When I think of Allison & Logan I think of the perfect couple comparable to a Disney prince and princess, so it was incredibly fitting that when I showed up to the venue that Allison was wearing her Mini Mouse house shoes.  I almost expected little woodland creatures to come and help her put on her wedding dress!   She was so incredibly excited and just full of joy and absolutely radiant!  When I asked what Disney couple they would most relate to, she said Anna and Krsitoff from Frozen and I can totally see it!  Their first look may have been a little windy but they were just too precious and so happy to see each other that a little wind was nothing.  They are just the kind of people that you can’t help but smile when you’re around them!  Their happiness is definitely contagious and you could tell during the ceremony how true that really is.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony – you won’t be able to keep yourself from grinning!

Janey and Collin – Engagement Session at Dallas Arboretum and White Rock LakeDallas, TX

With all of the threat of rain and having to reschedule once before, I was a little worried we would have to postpone again!  Luckily everything cleared and up and I met up with Janey and Collin at the Arboretum and it was a beautiful day!  I loved getting to hang out with these two.  They are the cutest and so incredibly happy.  It is a difficult thing not to smile when you are around them! Their love and happiness is definitely infections, my face hurt after their session from all of the smiling!  After the Arboretum, we headed over to White Rock Lake which is where Collin proposed to Janey when he told her that he wanted to take her to look at a sailboat.  Janey and Collin are a genuinely sweet couple and I am beyond excited to photograph their wedding this September!

Jess and Bobby – Engagement Session at Globe Life ParkArlington, TX

ATTENTION ALL BASEBALL FANS!!!  It is finally baseball season and with Jess and Bobby there was no other place than the Texas Rangers Stadium (Globe Life Park) for their engagement portraits.  Bobby proposed to Jess during a tour of the stadium, so I loved that they wanted to have their photos done there.  Being a big baseball fan myself, this was such a treat!  Not only are Jess and Bobby big Rangers fans, but they are the sweetest and kindest people! They are so much fun to be around and we had a blast hanging out around the empty stadium.  Our tour guide, Dick, also provided us with a fun time, a little Rangers history and added entertainment!  If you haven’t taken a tour, you definitely should!  I think the ballpark might be one of my favorite places to photograph.  Congratulations to Jess and Bobby!  Hope to you see you at a game soon! (Also, a special shout out to the tour coordinator, Billie, at the ball park!  She was absolutely wonderful to work with!)

Stephanie and Patrick – Engagement Session at The Dallas Arboretum and White Rock LakeDallas, TX

I am so excited to share Stephanie and Patrick’s engagement session!  I met up with these two at the Dallas Arboretum for the first part of their session.  We thought we were going to have bad weather, but luckily the sun started to pop out as we started and it was absolutely gorgeous by the time we got to the lake.  Stephanie is a TCU Horned Frog like me and Patrick has just moved here to Texas from New York, and I have never been so aware of how many times I say the word, Y’all.  I love when I can joke and poke fun with my couples.  It makes everything just a little bit more fun!  Stephanie and Patrick will be getting married in September and I can’t wait!
