AshleyMattEng 0173 Ashley & Matt Engaged!

Perfect couple + amazing blue sky = very happy photographer

Ashley and Matt were in town this week from Oklahoma for some wedding tasks so we got together in Grapevine for a vintage small town feel.  We played on some trains and ended at Lake Grapevine.  Matt was such a gentlemen and carried Ashley through some damp grass to get to the spots I wanted to shoot at so her heels wouldn’t sink into the ground.  It was great fun seeing them both and I know their wedding in May at Maple Manor and City Club Dallas is going to be a blast.

These two won me over before the session started because they let me pick their location!  Some of my couples have ideas about spots to shoot but others will tell me a feel they want and let me play.  The best thing about that is I get to select a new place or some where I haven’t been to in awhile so that it feels fresh and exciting to me.  Gotta love that!

SrPortBlog Caelan   Class of 2010

Sweet, Silly, Attitude and just Gorgeous!

Caelan is a super sweet young lady from San Antonio who came up to Fort Worth for her senior portraits.  We had so much fun exploring some of my favorite locations for her many outfits.  We even spotlighted her field uniform for drill team at the Kimball Art Museum.  Her family joined in for the beginning of the shoot which you can see some pics of here but these are my favorite of Caelan as well as her slide show.

When I showed this pic on the back of my camera to her brother he said she looked like she could be in a magazine and I agree. Definitley editorial material.

Favorite from the shoot! Texture, love and a very vintage feel.

At the beginning of the session Ryan was giving Lauren a hard time, with love of course, and at that moment he had me for sure.  I adore couples who are playful with each other and comfortable and these two are for sure.  I of course had to give Ryan a bit of a hard time too especially when he forgot to take off his first outfit when changing into his second.  He put a second collared shirt on over his first and we just shot away until it was time for wardrobe change number two and there was his first polo again!  I told him he failed the engagement session but I was lying because these two rocked it!  We shot at one of my new favorite spots in Fort Worth that has a very country feel but is right down town.  We also visited a few walls by the studio and the Fort Worth Water Gardens.

I hung out with Lauren on that dreary Saturday last week as well for her bridals but no peeking on those until the wedding.  See you guys in May!

I adore the way Ryan takes Lauren's arm when they walk together. They did through out the whole session as we went from spot to spot so we had to get a shot of it. So natural and loving.

Perfect wind making this moment have even more energy.

These two headed up last week from Austin for some wedding planning and errands.  So many of our couples live out of the area and I have so much respect for them as it is hard work to plan a wedding from a distance.  I was excited to take the opportunity to hang out with these two and get to know them on  a Saturday morning before they day really took off with tastings and meeting their officiant.

I had not shot at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens in ages so it was neat to play there before hitting a new spot, a cute cottage I recently found.  Jeff is so sweet to Laura and they really were just adorable.  Their wedding is coming up fast in early May so I will see you guys soon!
