Stacy & Brent Engaged in Fort Worth – Art Museums and Trinity Park

Engagement Photo Fort Worth Art Museum Modern Kimball Tracy Autem Wedding

I told him to just hang on her and this happened.....perfection.

Stacy and Brent are getting married next month at Marty Leonard Chapel here in Fort Worth.  I met Stacy several months ago as she was beginning to plan her Texas wedding after deciding not to get married in Mexico.  This girl is going to be a wedding expert after all is said and done because she essentially planned 2 weddings!  I am glad she decided to tie the knot here because that means I get to spend it with them!  Her and Brent are such sweet hearts and I had a great time getting to know them and their pup.  See you guys in a few weeks on the big day!

Mr & Mrs Ryan Batla – First United & City Club Fort Worth

Bride and Groom Portrait in courtyard of First United Methodist Church Fort Worth

Lauren and Ryan were married on May 8th at First United Methodist of Fort Worth where Lauren’s Mom, Sandy, works.  It made it so special that it has been her family church and it is also one of the most gorgeous churches in down town.  I just love my Fort Worth weddings and this was no exception as we had perfect weather and had a fun filled day.  From the special moments with Lauren and her sister Mellisa to the revealing of the outrageous life sized deer cake for Ryan we had a great time.  The reception at City Club of Fort Worth was full of dancing, great times and amazing comfort food from macaroni and cheese to sliders.  I know these two had a fabulous time on their honeymoon in St. Lucia and I bet they are dying to see some photos so with out further ado here are some favorite images from their wedding.

Jesse – Class of 2010!

Jesse is a sweet teen who was referred to us by one of her favorite teachers, Meredy Russell who is one of our brides from last year.  Jess is a fun girl who has played a variety of sports and is looking forward to heading off to college in the Fall.  With just weeks to go before graduation she had to squeeze in her photo session to commemorate this special time in her life.  Congrats Jessica on all your hard work and we wish you luck in the fall!  Here are some of my favorite photos from her session.

Tiffany & Matthew Engaged!

Steamy and perfect, Tiffany & Mat are such a HOT couple!

Tiffany &  Matthew are getting married this coming October at Hotel ZaZa & Marc Events in Dallas.  These two met in the Fort Worth Stockyards at the Neon Moon Saloon when a concert they both hoped to attend was sold out at Billy Bob’s.  Good thing they couldn’t get those tickets because other wise these two may have never been paired up.  We hit some of my favorite Fort Worth spots as well as the Stockyards to give a nice juxtaposition to the Dallas wedding they are planning.

Tiffany & Matt had these awesome jeans with matching pockets!

Adore this.

Adore This.

mmmmm, perfection

Tiffany has the cutest smile and how could I not love how Matt cuddles with her.

This entire series in the grass blew my socks off. Love it!

Tiffany & Matthew first met at Neon Moon so we had to take a few photos outside it for the memories.

Country rock stars!

I said "make a shape with your bodies in the door" and I got this, I think they did GOOD.

I love taking family photos especially when they are my family!  This crew is my step brother, Eric with his wife Kelly and kids.  We were actually shooting Caelan’s senior photos that afternoon but I thought it would be fun to get some family shots and of course a few of her brother Liam before we really got started.  I will be posting more on Caelan later this week but here are some fun photos from their mini session!

They look like a family band.  :)

We won't say what Eric was doing to get this genuine smile out of his son but it was worth it.

So serene and peacefull, in love!

Katy and Tyler were sent to me earlier this year by way of her Matron of honor, Lacie.  Lacie and Matt were one of my fabulous couples last year and Katy was in their wedding.  It is so much fun to work with past clients and their friends!  Another couple of mine was also present at their wedding and it was so nice to see them all and how great their new lives are going.

These two are the type of couple where from the moment you see them together you know they have something special.  The way he looks at her, how she laughs when he does, it all equals perfection.  Their wedding day was filled with joyful tears from all (including myself) and fun filled moments.  From their wedding at her home church in Weatherford to the reception at the Fort Worth Stockyards it was a rocking day.  Great music, food and fun all night long!  Here are some of my favorite parts of their wedding day.

Love the light kissing her face is this shot at Tyler nuzzles her neck, Hot!

The Kiss!

MerillWeddingBlog_0007

Triptic

My absolute favorite part of every wedding, the moment the bride and groom make it out the door and have a private moment alone. It is that first "We are married!" moment and they are finally away from all the eyes of thier guests. It is so special and usually couples are like magnets and can't help but kiss, laugh or just beam at one another.

Katy is a singer and man was I impressed, she sang a heart wrenching song with absolute perfection that brought Tyler and all of us to tears.

off to the honeymoon!

 


Katy & Tyler Engaged!





HORSES! That is what I have to say about this shoot, it was like being a little kid because I got to play with horses!

Katy and Tyler met on horse back and horses are Tyler’s life so we couldn’t think of a better thing to do for their engagement session. We met out in Weatherford and explored the old train depot and downtown before heading to Katy’s parents place where they jumped on horse back and played. I love how Tyler had to re-enact his first interaction with Katy but of course he added a kiss as he leaned on her saddle. The light was scrumptious and the horses behaved and I honestly could not have asked for more.

I looking forward to their wedding and country elegant wedding at the stockyards in September.
