Dallas Engagement Session Arlington Hall The Crescent SMU Perkins Chapel 00011 Shannon & Geoff   Dallas Engagement Portraits at SMU and Crescent

 

Shannon and Geoff are SO darn cute!  Oh my.  SO this couple is the ultimate in cool.  They didn’t want just ONE engagement, they wanted TWO sessions!  I love that!  SO we met up in the fall for their first session you can see HERE at The Las Colinas Canals and Grapevine Botanical Gardens.  It was super fabulous!  So this time we went a completely other route.  We headed to Dallas to hang out at SMU and also The Crescent.  We shared some coffee and cupcakes as a nod to where this couple first met, a coffee shop!  Shannon brought along some sweet cupcakes (I know, I ate them with my kids afterwards!)  Their wedding this June is going to be so phenomenal, can’t wait!!!

-Tracy

See more of their sweet shoot!

Fort Worth engagement photographer Magnolia ave salon star wars lightsabers 0011 Brandi & TJ {Engaged Part 2} Filled with lightsaber fights and hairdressing!

I think Part 2 of Brandi & TJ”s engagement session may include some of my favorite photos from their day.  They are filled with themes and a little silly, like the couple.  Having a theme at your engagement session is in no way a requirement.  In fact very few of my couples like to bring in specific props and view points.  When they do it gives me a road map to play with though and I always enjoy that.   It is also artistically a challenge as I have to find a way to bring their concepts to life.

Brandi & TJ both love the movies and specifically Star Wars.  From the very start they joked about lightsabers but I fully encouraged it and they were bought and a duel did ensue at their session.  These two met with Brandi in TJ’s chair as he was (and always will be) her hairdresser.  They wanted to play on that and do a switch – a roo with her holding the scissors for a change.  We shot this role reversing scene at Magnolia Ave Salon where TJ styles hair.  I created a one of a kind Entertainment Weekly magazine cover featuring their favorite movie and a save the date and we just played!

I love you both and can’t wait to photograph you again…..oh and TJ, my hair badly needs to be done.  icon smile Brandi & TJ {Engaged Part 2} Filled with lightsaber fights and hairdressing!   See you Wednesday for my hair appointment!  (I trust you more than  Brandi with those scissors.)

Fort Worth engagement photographer the usual bar urban city coffee 0010 Brandi & TJ {Engaged Part 1} Urban fun with a cup o joe

This session was Fun with a major capital F because I just adored each and every moment of it.  I have know the groom, TJ, for about a decade.  He started cutting my hair when I was in college (back then it was super short and very Audrey Hepburn) and I have always loved his off the wall personality.  I was so glad to hear he had found his perfect match in Brandi.  She matches him in quirkiness and has a love for movies (including Star Wars) so when they called about their wedding photography I was jumping up and down with joy.

Last week I finally got to hang out with them and we did tons of super neat stuff.   We started their session with an urban vibe and then celebrated their love of coffee at The Usual.  I know, that is not a coffee shop but a bar but it had the perfect vibe and atmosphere.  If you are ever on Magnolia Ave and in need of a cocktail I highly recommend it.  More from their session soon!
