Melanie Jane & Dave {Engaged} Grapevine historic trains and botanic gardens

Miss Melanie Jane is just adorable and I was extremely excited to photograph her engagement session and get to meet her fiance, Dave.  My couples always give me some feedback and ideas about what they want their engagement session to feel like.  Melanie gave me the best description ever….I want to be in front of things.  That just made me laugh and I thought I can definitely do that!  Dave was a pure pleasure as he knew exactly how to be sweet in front of the camera and also ridiculous to get some great laughs out of Melanie.  Their wedding is next May at Robert Carr Chapel and Fort Worth Club, I am going to have an amazing year of weddings next year with couples like these two!

Ashley & Matt Engaged!

Perfect couple + amazing blue sky = very happy photographer

Perfect couple + amazing blue sky = very happy photographer

Ashley and Matt were in town this week from Oklahoma for some wedding tasks so we got together in Grapevine for a vintage small town feel.  We played on some trains and ended at Lake Grapevine.  Matt was such a gentlemen and carried Ashley through some damp grass to get to the spots I wanted to shoot at so her heels wouldn’t sink into the ground.  It was great fun seeing them both and I know their wedding in May at Maple Manor and City Club Dallas is going to be a blast.

These two won me over before the session started because they let me pick their location!  Some of my couples have ideas about spots to shoot but others will tell me a feel they want and let me play.  The best thing about that is I get to select a new place or some where I haven’t been to in awhile so that it feels fresh and exciting to me.  Gotta love that!

Adore!!

Adore!!

We have had SO much wind lately and we have been trying to use it to our advantage.  I think this worked the wind.

Laura & Jeff

Perfect wind making this moment have even more energy.

These two headed up last week from Austin for some wedding planning and errands.  So many of our couples live out of the area and I have so much respect for them as it is hard work to plan a wedding from a distance.  I was excited to take the opportunity to hang out with these two and get to know them on  a Saturday morning before they day really took off with tastings and meeting their officiant.

I had not shot at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens in ages so it was neat to play there before hitting a new spot, a cute cottage I recently found.  Jeff is so sweet to Laura and they really were just adorable.  Their wedding is coming up fast in early May so I will see you guys soon!

February was a cold month here in Texas but Lacy & Gabe met up with me on one of the nicer days for their engagement session at the Fort Worth Stockyards.  These two are getting married in May out in Sulphur Springs and are having a very relaxed and fun Texas wedding.  Here are some favorites from their shoot along with their engagement slide show.

So I like it when guys snuggle on girls too.  So sweet!

Diana & Jared Engaged!

Diana & Jared are having a destination wedding in Cabo later next year and although I won’t be able to join them for their wedding Diana really wanted some photos here at home prior to their day.  Diana is friends with one of my brides from this year so I was super excited to get to know them and hang out for their shoot last week.  We explored some of my favorite urban hang outs and a few new places.

Jennifer & Max Engaged!





JenMaxSS-52This weekend I had so much fun with Jennifer and Max.  We ran into some obstacles with some keys accidentally getting locked in the trunk where all our changes of clothes were but luckily Jennifers super sweet Dad came to our rescue with a spare key.  The extra time we spent just chatting while we waited on him was well worth it as I love hanging with my couples even when we aren’t taking any photos.   These two met on a blind date and whoever set that up did a great job as they are a perfect match.  Jennifer is a lawyer in Dallas and Max is finishing up medical school.  I loved Max’s dry sense of humor and his second love, his new sports coat that really he didn’t want to take off.  He was convinced that it was the jacket making the photos look so good but I disagree, it was my in love subjects.  Here are some favorites from the Japanese Gardens, Kimball Art Museum and a lovely field down town.

Robin & Corey – Engaged!





RobinCorey_EngBlog_0019

I am so lucky to get to work with the greatest girls.  My favorite weddings are often past bridesmaids and friends of my brides.  Robin was a bridesmaid earlier this year in Megan & Austin’s wedding so we already had hung out and I had a feel for her in front of the camera.  Corey and I hadn’t really met but he was just the sweetest thing and super fun as the three of us explored some new locations.  These guys were brave from homeless men coming up to us to the discovery of a giant wasp nest during thier shoot.  I think the risks paid off as we laughed and got some killer images.  Here are some favorites and I  can’t wait to make more beautiful images with these two at their wedding on October 17th!

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.
