Brides of North Texas {Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Gown Shoot} Dreamy dresses, elegant bride, handsome groom and vintage detailing

I do have a true love story with brides and wedding dresses.  One of the main reasons I am passionate about shooting weddings is that I love the fairy tale, the excitement and the uniqueness that surrounds each wedding gown and the bride that chooses it.  When the owners of Brides of North Texas Magazine approached me about this dreamy vintage shoot I was on board from the  moment I saw the inspiration board.  It was completely up my alley as I love all things that are soft, natural, vintage and romantic.  It stood out to me as different as well from other gown editorials as we were going to throw into the mix a good looking young man, some designer suiting, a table-scape, detail shots and a boudoir look!  I was completely taken a back as well as I thought, little old me, shoot a gown editorial?  I knew I could do it but I also think that a degree of humbleness and wanting to improve is essential to any artists growth.  This shoot humbled me, wowed me and when I finally held the magazine in my hands I was in awe of what I created.  I actually looked at my staff and said I can’t believe these are my photos!  I am so in love with each image and the Brides of North Texas staff so blessed me with this opportunity.  I can’t wait for the projects I will shoot with them in the future!  Later this Fall I will share some more images from the shoot that are not in the magazine as well as a few behind the scenes moments.

Brides of North Texas Spring 2011 Issue

Have you seen the latest Brides of North Texas Magazine?  We have and L O V E it, like really love.  In my opinion it is the ultimate in planning for the North Texas area.  What makes this publication unique is their approach to content.  In so many magazines you see ad’s and stock photography or weddings from other parts of the state and country.  Not here, everything is local from the first page to the last.  We are so excited to be a part of this publication and can’t wait to see how we can contribute to the next issue.  Below are some samples of my work featured through out the magazine.  You can also check out in the Engagement announcements my couple, Lindsey & Jason (They also grace the first page of that section!!)  In wedding announcements Stacey & Brent’s wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel & Ashton Depot is smashing.  If you haven’t seen the magazine yourself pick one up at Barnes & Noble, Central Market an upcoming bridal show or stop by and see us, we would love to give you one.
