Brittany & Rich – Engagement Session at the Kimbell Art Museum & Trinity ParkFort Worth, Texas

Brittany and Rich are just about as cute as it gets!  When we rolled up to the Kimbell Art Museum for the first part of our session, the weather was not looking so hot, but we stuck it out and it turned out to be perfect!

Here is how these two met:

“Rich and I met at the University of Oklahoma. Although we were friends and ran in the same circles, we did not date during our time there. Rich graduated and went on to law school while I was in my senior year. That December in 2013, OU went to the Sugar Bowl and played Alabama in New Orleans. We ran into each other there and the spark ignited. From then on, we were talking constantly.
Once summer rolled around, I went home to Coppell and Rich came home to Fort Worth. Rich was very persistent about getting to know me better and that’s when we started officially dating. That whole summer we were inseparable, fell in love quickly, and the rest is history.”

I loved getting to know them during their session and can’t wait for their wedding next year!

Allison & Jacob – Engagement Session at The Kimbell Art Museum and Fort Worth Botanic GardensFort Worth, TX

Oh my goodness gracious!  These two are just so precious I just can’t even begin to explain just how cute they are!  Allison and Jacob met at OU and had a few classes together and ran with the same group of friends before getting together.  I love how Allison describes the proposal:

It was OU vs TCU weekend in Norman. Being from Fort Worth, my parents are big TCU fans so every time the two schools play each other we make sure we are in FW or Norman for the game. This year the game was in Oklahoma so I knew my parents and little sister who just recently graduated from OU as well were coming in town for the game. We had dinner plans at a fancy steak place downtown so I was all dressed up for that. Jacob had told me his parents had a banquet in Norman to go to so we were meeting up with them for drinks near campus. A little background here is that his parents don’t get out of the house often because they prefer to stay home and his mom is a great cook. His mom also works on campus so the fact that they were planning on attending a banquet on a Friday night presented a rare opportunity for us to meet up with them for a drink before going to dinner with my family. We drove to campus, parked, and then started walking. I got wrapped up in a story (you can probably already tell that I tend to ramble!) and just kept talking and walking. All of a sudden, Jacob stops and grabs my hands. All I can remember that he said was “This is where we met. This is where we fell in love. And this is where I ask you to be my wife.” and got down on one knee. And to top it all off, he had hired a photographer to capture the moment for us. I thought it was so sweet of him to do that because he knows how important stuff like that is to me. We ended up taking a mini photo shoot with this photographer around campus and then we were starving! The dinner at the steakhouse downtown hadn’t been real all along – we ended up at this cute local restaurant in Norman where he had rented out a room and coordinated for both of our families to be there for snacks and champagne to celebrate! He knocked it out of the park. It was everything I could have hoped for and more – the perfect place that will always hold a special meaning to both of us, someone there to sneakily capture the moment, both of our families, champagne, and frosted sugar cookies! Literally the best night of my life so far 🙂

Allison and Jacob lucked out with the perfect day for their engagement session and were so giggly and sweet.  I absolutely cannot wait for their big day this fall!


Katie & Keegan – Engagement Session at the Kimbell Art Musuem & Magnolia AreaFort Worth, TX

“Keegan and I went to high school together; he actually asked me out once but I was grounded! Fast forward to right after college and we ran into each other at a party and reconnected. He lived in Austin and I was in Arlington but we became good friends and kept in touch over the years. We started dating in February of 2016 and did long distance. I moved to Austin in November 2016 and we got engaged in April of 2017” – Katie

These two get married this summer and I am pumped!  Here are some of my favorite moments from their session!


Alexis & Jesse – Engagement Session at The Art Museums & Downtown Fort WorthFort Worth, TX

Alexis and Jesse are so much fun and they are absolutely perfect for each other.  Jesse knew just what to say to get some giggles out of Alexis by whispering sweetly in her ear that she smelled like Chick-Fil-A.  I mean, there are worse things to smell like, right?  These two have known each other for most of their lives, so they know each other pretty well.  Alexis tells us in her own words about how they met and got together:

“Jesse and I have been together for two and half years, however I have known him since I was six. I met Jesse as a child when he moved in with my aunt to finish high school. It was not until three years ago when really reconnected when we were both in my cousin’s wedding. That night we talked all night at the rehearsal dinner and then went for drinks later which then lead to dancing all night long at a wedding the following day. Jesse and I dated a month before we became official, but that was easy because we were already attached at the hip.”

I loved getting to know these two and I am so excited to photograph their big day this November!



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!


Thanks to Jennifer Trotter with Lip Service Makeup for doing such an amazing job with Kristen’s hair and makeup!

Daniella & Stephen – Getting Ready and First Look at the Worthington HotelFort Worth, Texas

Get ready folks for the cutest couple!  Daniella and Stephen are not only adorable together, but they are some of the sweetest people.  These two currently live in New York (yes please!) but chose to get married at St. Patrick Cathedral with a reception at the Ashton Depot!  These two got ready at the Worthington Hotel and chose to have their first look on the rooftop before the ceremony.  Let me tell you, I don’t think any of us had dry eyes!  We also had the opportunity to take a pit stop at the Kimbell Art Museum for some fun wedding party photos!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!


Special thanks to all the vendors!

Lizzie & Caleb – Engagement Session at the Kimbell Art Museum & Magnolia StreetFort Worth, TX

Lizzie and Caleb were such a fun couple and kept me laughing their entire session.  We explored the Kimbell Art Museum and the Magnolia area (with a little side trip to Kent & Co.) and ended with a fun champagne shot!  I mean seriously, how cute are they together?!  Check out a few of my favorite moments from their session!  Can’t wait for their big day!


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.


Diana – Bridal at the KimbellFort Worth, TX

Clint, Kim and Collins – Family Portraits

Lightly Photography 2016 https://lightlyphoto.com

We are so happy to share these photos of this beautiful family!  Sweet Collins is 4 years old and has already conquered cancer once, but she is facing that battle once more.  Collins has the sweetest spirit and is just so precious.  We were able to get in some family portraits before she gets too far in her treatments and she was such a trooper.  She didn’t feel very good, but you’d never know it!  She showed us her very cool fringed boots and we talked about her favorite Disney Princess, Belle.  Collins has a sweet smile, but when she laughs it is incredibly infectious!  We love getting photograph Collins and her parents, Clint and Kim.  We ask for prayers for their family as they go through this tough journey with Collins.  We can’t wait to photograph them again as soon as she is feeling much better!
