I have been dying to share this bridal portrait. Jackie is so super sweet, I just love spending time with her and her entire wedding day look was just stunning. Jackie found her dress at Stanley Korshak and it was designed by Isabelle Armstrong. I love the bold lace details, edging and fitted bodice. It is light and airy and ever so intricate. Her textured bouquet with anemone’s and pops of pink by Tami Winn brought in a bit of depth to her look. I always love photographing at the Meyerson – the light bright and airy feel of this venue is a favorite and it’s modern clean lines were the perfect backdrop to Jacqueline’s dress.

Bass Hall was the perfect location for Brooklyn’s bridal portraits as her wedding was just across the street at McDavid Studio and the Van Cleburne Recital Hall. The light bright whites of the space made her detailed gown with textured skirt stand out. Brooklyn is a gorgeous girl with a big heart and a stunning smile. She came to work with me through a friends referral and although we only chatted on the phone before her bridal session I already felt so connected to her. It was awesome to meet her in person and get to know her a bit before her wedding day. She found her wedding dress at Bliss Bridal Salon in Fort Worth.
Amy was a stunning bride! I loved her airy and soft skirted gown with corseted detailing on the top. Amy and Bryce’s wedding will be hitting the blog this week but as I put the finishing touches on her wedding images I had to share these gorgeous bridals. Amy looked amazing thanks to Rayven with Beauty and the Blush – she always does such a beautiful job on hair and makeup for my clients. One of my faves! Amy’s cascading bouquet by A Stylish Soiree with greenery and some loose leaves and textured floral perfectly accented the shape and feel of her gown. We photographed her bridals at Union Station – the location of her wedding reception and I just adore this outdoor terrace area there. It is so pretty!
Check back later this week for more from Amy’s wedding!
Shelby along with her Mom and Sister met up with me at Lone Star Mansion in Burleson earlier this spring for her bridal session before the wedding at the Ashton Depot. Shelby was about to run off for a bachelorette weekend in Vegas and we had a great time chatting about the fun to come and all her excitement for the wedding. Shelby was gorgeous thanks to Grand Slam Glam and her sweet and classic gown from Ivory Bridal Atelie. I loved the flowers made by Sage Fine Florals as well. Lone Star has beautiful big columns that are so reminiscent of classic Southern architecture – it is a great place for portraits.

Kyndall’s bridal portraits at Chandor Gardens were so fun to photograph! I love her classic lace gown with a beaded belt from the Neiman Marcus Bridal Salon. We had so much fun laughing and playing in the gardens. Her family owns Lilium Flowers and the provided her lush all white bouquet. Her long blonde tresses were perfect thanks to Fallon Farmer with Love & Pout.

I have been waiting to share these – Annie is on my team with Lightly Photography. She is one of my associate photography team and is a sweet friend whom I love like a little sis. We arranged for a special location for her bridal session – The Modern Art Museum. It is typically not available for sessions due to the restrictions of the artwork and insurers so if you are crushing on these photos I hate to tell you that your only ticket into this museum for photos is to have your wedding there. Annie loves the clean lines and modern architecture of the building with the soaring glass windows. We played with reflections and movement and used natural light to capture these bridal portraits. Annie purchased her gown at Classy Concepts in Mansfield and her Bouquet is by her Mother – Bridal Blooms & Justine’s Flowers. Hair and makeup by Fallon Farmer with Love & Pout.
Britny is a stunner – like I am super jealous of her flawless skin and gorgeous eyes! Britny and Aman had a 2 day wedding event with a traditional Indian wedding followed by a more contemporary ceremony the next day. Britny looked like a princess both days though and I love her Lace cap sleeved gown from Bliss Bridal with cathedral length veil. Her hair, pulled to one side, just made her look feel like old hollywood and oh so glamourous. Her bright and colorful bouquet had so much texture and reflected the fun and elegant vibe that her wedding had. Tami Winn always knocks it out of the park on flowers! For her bridals we selected the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas for its light bright and airy architecture with clean and modern lines. Although a contemporary space it is elegant and classic and one of my very favorite places to photograph brides! Even on a rainy day this place is heaven inside for light!

Megan was a GORGEOUS bride and as her wedding just hit the newsstands in the newest Brides of North Texas Magazine I thought it was perfect timing to share her garden bridal session from last summer. Megan is a sweetie and oh so fun to be around – her dress definitely showed off her personality with it sweet and sparkly detailing and volume filled skirt with attitude! This mixture of classic and modern clean lines complimented her wedding to Dylan at Robert Carr Chapel on the TCU campus with a reception at The Modern Art Museum. The open back dress with sparkly straps was purchased at Nordstrom Wedding Suite.

Nicole was a gorgeous bride with a big heart, lovely smile and a happiness that is infectious. Her wedding last year at the Adolphus was fun filled and I so loved getting to know her parents and Kyle’s family. I always get the blues after weddings are over because I really build such a closeness with my brides that I want to have excuses to see them forever. Today I am revisiting this lovely lady and sharing her bridal portraits. Photographed last spring at the Dallas Arboretum. Nicole found her dress at the Bridal Boutique of Lewisville and her flowers are by Fleurs & Events. It was super HOT this day and she brought the best crew of ladies to help her out. With cousins and bridesmaids at her side they brought mini fans to keep Nicole cool, carried things are cracked us al up. A wedding is made special by the couple but it is furthered by those close to them that they choose to include – Nicole definitely has great people in her life and that mad her bridal session a day I will not forget!
Hardest part of my job hands down is sitting on images that I can’t share. Now that wedding season is coming to a close be prepared for an influx of beautiful bridal portraits! Caitlin’s bridal session was at The Crescent Hotel, a Rosewood Property, in Dallas. Her sleek and stunning gown with lace detailing, illusion mid-drift and neckline are the perfect mixture of alluring and elegant. The clean lines and greenery of the Crescen’ts outdoor spaces played well with the subtle organic nature of her gown and the indoor spaces added some drama. Caitlin’s look was pulled together with some help of some amazing vendors:
