Katie & Allen’s vibrant colored wedding reception at Piazza in the Village in Colleyville was beautiful.

Brooklyn & Eric – Wedding Reception at Bass Hall – Van CliburnFort Worth, Texas

I am SOOOO in love with the photos from Brooklyn & Eric’s wedding – these two just LOVE each other fiercely and when they are together you can see it clearly.  As I hadn’t met Eric before the wedding this was my first chance to see these two together.  All night long he kept her in his arms, smiles on their faces and LOTS of kisses.  For romantic portraits of the two of them we headed to a nearby outdoor spot where we had great architectural lines and some greenery.  As the party got under way Brooklyn and her Daddy’s special dance stole the show – their choreographed fun routine showed off not only their mad dance moves but how much he cherishes his little girl.  During the reception everyone danced and had a festive time.

Taylor & Tyler – Wedding Reception at City Club Fort WorthTexas

Taylor & Tyler’s wedding reception was beautiful in pinks and naturals at The City Club of Fort Worth!  The ballroom there always sparkles and there is something else I love about this venue – it is always a GREAT PARTY!  The atmosphere is just perfect for dancing all night, an amazing band and lots of fun!  Before we got to into the evening we snuck away for some night time photos not he balcony overlooking downtown Fort Worth.  I loved the TCU Purple lights on the buildings.  As the night went on these two danced, found themselves on the stage a few times and had a great time celebrating with their friends.  We had so much fun celebrating with you two – I can’t wait to see all the future holds!


Thank you to the wedding vendors who executed Taylor’s vision and made her day so fun!

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!

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!

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!

Liz & Thomas – Wedding Ceremony & Reception at Omni HotelFort Worth, Texas

Liz & Thomas have a love story that is full of hope!  I love these two and getting to know them, their children and friends made my heart so full!  God most definitely brought these two together, living in the same neighborhood and attending the same parish for years these two had never met.  Until one morning Liz was having a house emergency with a major water leak – and Thomas who just happens to own a plumbing company strolled by.  An offer of help, an exchange of a card, an invitation for a glass of wine and now they have fulfilled each others hopes for a soulmate and life partner!  They know how to live life to the fullest and love fiercely – not just each other but every person in their lives.  Hearing the sweet words of their children as they toasted their parents at the reception brought tears to my eyes.  I was an emotion filled day – as you can see from the photo above when Thomas first saw Liz during their first look – but it was overflowing with FUN too!


Thank you both for trusting me to be with you, for sharing your family with me and most of all for being such a great fulfillment of the promise of God’s timing and plan.  I know He has great things in store for you and your families!


Shout out to the awesome team of vendors that made this party a PARTY!

Jennifer & Stephen – Wedding Reception at La Cantera ResortSan Antonio, Texas

Jennifer & Stephen had such a fun party with their friends!  The reception was the end of a great week pool side, partying and loving life with their most loved.  Having a wedding that is destination – no matter how far – always makes for a special event.  At the reception everyone danced the night away – had too much fun in the mirror me photo booth and ate yummy cake, ice cream and treats!  It was perfect!  Not sure if these guys were serious about dancing?  Check out Jennifer’s kicks!  She had some awesome gold sparkly kate spade shoes to rock at the reception while all the other ladies threw on some fun gold polka dot chuck taylors.


This weekend was truly phenomenal.  We so enjoyed being there with you both and I can’t wait to see all that the future holds for you two!  Shout out to the amazing vendor team Jennifer lined up for their big day!
