Ashlea & Mark – Engagement Portraits in ChicagoDestination Photo Shoot

Chicago was an amazing city to explore with Ashlea and Mark.  Ashlea is a Texas girl at heart but life and schooling took her North to Chicago where she met Mark!  Now these two have made a home for themselves outside the city they love and they invited me to experience a day with them!  These two love being home – doing some yoga, working out in their home gym and enjoying some snuggling and cooking side by side.  Even though they may live in one of the coolest cities in the US their home is their sanctuary so we had to kick of the photo shoot there.  Ashlea and Mark showed off some Yoga poses and moves before playing in their yard and just getting cozy on the sofa.  As we headed into the city we stopped off at United Center – the home of the Chicago Bulls for some sports inspired photos.  Mark loves sports but most of all he loves Ashlea – he proposed to her over the holidays with an engagement ring tied to a new pair of kicks she had been eyeing.  She was so excited about the shoes she almost missed the ring!  After some playful photos it was time to get glam at the Chicago Theater.  Ashlea has a background in dance and is a dance therapist so she is amazing at knowing her body and I loved that she threw some dance inspired poses into our session.  From the alley’s of Chicago to the beach at sunset we laughed the entire day.  These two know how to live, love and laugh together well!  At sunset we caught the lights of the city behind them and the beauty of Lake Michigan.  I loved Chicago and getting to know this fabulous couple and can’t wait for their 2018 wedding here in Texas!

Congrats Ashlea & Mark and can’t wait to see you here in Fort Worth!

Kyndall & Cole – Wedding Reception at TCU Champions ClubFort Worth, Texas

This wedding reception at The Champion Club overlooking Amon Carter Stadium at TCU was purple and full of sparkle!  Kyndall and Cole let the purple stand out in linen’s, up-lighting and floral touches.  Oh but the sparkle – they had the coolest dance floor I have ever seen – a silver glitter dance floor!  I loved the way the light reflected off it through out the night!  And once glitter dance floor isn’t enough so their cake had its own glitter floor drop too!  With yummy food by Bonnell’s and sweet treat’s from J Rae’s this wedding had every fine Fort Worth detail!

We had a blast on the dance floor with Kyndall & Cole and special guest super frog!  TCU will always be a part of their love story and their reception was truly a love filled evening.  Congrats to you both!  Thank you for inviting us to share this day with you, to capture all the laughter and joy.  It was perfect in every way!

Thank you to every vendor that made this day so special!

Kyndall & Cole – Wedding Portraits at Texas Christian UniversityFort Worth, Texas

They say rain is good luck on a wedding day and if that is true Kyndall and Cole will walk through their marriage with luck at their side!  We all expect July weddings to be hot but on this day a surprise summer storm popped up just as these two were about to say I do!  The rain was outside so we played inside!  The new renovations at Robert Carr Chapel look awesome and you can see how crisp and beautiful this classic chapel is in these photos.  The rain just wouldn’t let up but we didn’t let that stop us from getting some photos in the Horned Frog Football Stadium!  At the Amon Carter Stadium it was drizzly and humid but we embraced the day and the humidity for some super cute photos for these TCU alumni.

 

Thank you to the vendors who made Kyndall & Cole’s day so beautiful!

Kyndall & Cole – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelTCU in Fort Worth, Texas

This TCU wedding was perfect in every way!  This couple met at TCU and it is now the place they said I do!  When they met Cole immediately knew that Kyndall was special and he pursued her as a friend and eventually a girlfriend.  I think his hard work paid off as Kyndall could not be more in love with Cole.  The excitement leading up to the ceremony was at a 10!  Both, ready to see each other and SO ready to be married!  We met up with these guys at the Fort Worth Omni Hotel for the preparations for the wedding at Texas Christian University.  As Kyndall dressed her Mom looked on with pride and love for her little girl.  When Daddy came into the room to see his daughter, a bride, it was perfect – the hugs, the laughter and a little bit of tears.   So sweet as they exchanged gifts and words before heading off to walk his daughter down the aisle.  Cole and his guys had a good time pre-ceremony with toasts of Whiskey, laughter and fun to ease his nerves and get him ready for the biggest “game day” of his life.  I was truly blessed to watch these two vow to one another love, devotion and respect and I know that God will carry them and their marriage through the life ahead.  Congrats you two!

 

Kyndall & Cole’s wedding vendor team was perfection!  Huge thanks to:

Kristin & Michael – Wedding Reception at Dove Ridge VineyardFort Worth, Texas

Kristin & Michael’s wedding was so much fun!  I love how they used the entire space at Dove Ridge Vineyard as guests danced, mingled under the stars and enjoyed delicious food!  They were adorable as Michael spun Kristin and held her tight through out their first dance.  As the sun set, God painted a fabulous backdrop for them outside that guests and the couple enjoyed as they drank cocktails and mingled under the setting sun.  The amazing views are even visible inside with the floor to ceiling windows on both sides of the hall.  These two really value their friends and family and they took so much time to really connect with everyone at their wedding.

 

Big shout out to all the vendors who made this day beautiful!

Kristin & Michael – Portraits at Dove Ridge VineyardFort Worth, Texas

Check out those sunset hues!  This is why Kristin & Michael selected Dove Ridge Vineyard for their wedding – the stunning hilltop views at this ranch like location are stunning.  These two are so sweet together and were ultra lovey and cute on this rather blustery day.  As the sun set we stole away a few moments for sunset photos twice!  The sky slowly changed and as it did we had to get a photo with these golden and blue hues.

I can’t wait to photograph out here again as the vines in the vineyard below begin to mature and grow!  This place is perfect already and it is only going to get better!

Kristin & Michael – Wedding Ceremony at Dove Ridge VineyardFort Worth, Texas

When a couple walks out of their ceremony just smiling and looking at each other it is the best thing ever!  I love how much Kristin and Michael are into each other!  During this ceremony there were so many smiles, stollen glances and sweet moments.  Dove Ridge is situated on top of a hill with amazing views and this outdoor covered space is the perfect place to have your ceremony out of the bright summer sun!

Thanks to the fab vendor team!

Kristin & Michael – Wedding Preparations at Dove Ridge VineyardFort Worth, Texas

Kristin & Michael are married!!  This lovely day kicked off with preparations on site at Dove Ridge Vineyard.  Kristin, surrounded by her friends, Mom and family dressed and primped for the big day.  There were so many special moments from Mom standing by her side as she dressed to Kristin’s reveal with her Daddy.  Dad came in the room and immediately laid hands on his daughter and prayed over the day, her marriage and it brought me to tears!  Both Kristin and Michael were a little emotional reading each others notes pre-ceremony.  Michael included in his not the receipt from their first date – the moment Kristin saw it she was all tears and smiles and some laughter too!  These two and their families love deeply and are not afraid to show it and that is the best combination EVER!

Always love working with amazing vendors and this wedding was no different:

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

This wedding reception is one I will likely never forget.  At the end of the night I told Tyler that he is one of the coolest and most fun groom’s I have ever worked with.  Tyler and Bethany both are a joy to be around and they made the best of their 4 hour reception.  I am pretty sure they danced, hugged, talked and laughed with at least every guest they had.  From the moment they walked in the tone was set for a killer night – as the doors opened and the band announced the Mr & Mrs and played “All I do is Win”  these two entered the reception arms in the air and tore up the dance floor before their first dance had even begun.  Their entrance was epic and it didn’t stop there.  Reception’s are about more than the couple – they are about all the invited guest and loved ones.  During this party I loved watching the parents interact with one another and their children.  We caught Tyler hugging Bethany’s parents, chatting up his Dad and brother and being a little crazy on the stage with the band.  Bethany sang with the band from the dance floor, had fun dancing beside her husband and stole lots of kisses from him all night.

To top all of that – Bethany and Tyler are my 4th couple in a group of friends I have been so lucky to photograph.  Having 3 of my past couples dancing along side me as I captured this night was priceless.  Building relationships with my couples and seeing them time and again at other friends weddings is such a huge reward.  I’m looking forward to sharing the dance floor with all 8 of them next year at another one!

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelTCU Fort Worth, Texas

Hey!  Look at this beautifully remodeled and fresh new look at Robert Carr Chapel!  The iconic church on the campus of Texas Christian University just finished a long renovation earlier this month and I was SO excited to see it finished.  I love the updated color palette, new floors, expanded altar and all the amazing amenities they have added.  Can’t wait for all  my upcoming weddings here!

Okay, enough about the new look at Robert Carr – back to Bethany & Tyler!  Before walking down the aisle Bethany’s friends laid hands on her and prayed over her, the wedding and her life ahead as a Mrs.  It was so sweet!  During the ceremony these two were all smiles and I can’t blame them – I was too!  Their pastor was hilarious – he gave a challenging word of inspiration.  Pushing them to seek after a marriage that was full, overflowing and rich in all things – like a big gulp!  Yes, a big gulp, and he had the cup to drive the point home as a prop!  After saying I do, embracing the idea of a marriage that is MORE they kissed and it was done!  They were married!

Robert Carr isn’t just gorgeous inside, it is outside as well and we took some beautiful photos of these two on the steps and around the chapel.
