Eugenia & Michael {Married Part 3 – Details & Reception} Fort Worth Modern Art Museum & Botanic Gardens

The reception is when the FUN happens and it is also where we get to see the hard work of Eugenia & Michael’s team.  I fell completely in love with the purple motif created in the grand lobby and cafe modern by Philip Combs Designs, Dayna Tooley Events, Specialty Sound & MM Special Events.  The floral was smart and crisp and the repetition of the sliver branches that mimicked the sculpture on the grounds was ingenious.  The lounge furniture and purple up-lighting gave the cafe the ultimate swanky feeling.  The food by The Modern was delicious as always and Eugenia, Michael and their guests and a fabulous time dancing the night away.  The yummy cake was by Creme de la Creme.

Eugenia & Michael {Married Part 2 – First Look & Portraits} Fort Worth Modern Art Museum & Botanic Gardens

There are two things I  LOVE, love, LOVE to photograph.  Breathtaking romantic portraits and moments that happen once and give me goose bumps.  First looks make both these things happen and are there fore my favorite thing.  NOW, they are not for everyone.  In fact most of my brides and grooms are quite traditional and opt to see each other for the first time when her Daddy gives her away.  For my brides that are a bit modern and don’t feel married to tradition it is an opportunity like no other.  Complete privacy when she is unveiled as a bride and time to talk, hug, kiss and be excited with no prying eyes (except my lens.)  Eugenia and Michael choose to see each other behind the Rose Garden at the Botanic Garden on a less traveled path for some intimacy.  I just glowed, almost as much as Micheal, when they embraced and cheesed it up at each other.  What happened after was ample time to play in the gardens, photograph the families and bridal party as well time at the Fort Worth Modern.  The Modern is truly a treat to photograph at, how can it not be?  Surrounded by world class architecture and modern works of art… is definitely my cup of tea.  It is also a one of a kind shoot as ONLY couples having their wedding reception are allowed to take photos in the galleries.  Come back by tomorrow to see their highlights slide show as well as their details and reception blog!

Eugenia & Michael – Engaged in Fort Worth!

Last Monday I spent the morning with this fantastic couple.  Usually we do engagement sessions in the afternoon but Eugenia and Michael are planning their wedding under special circumstances and this was absolutely the ONLY time I could ever get them in to the studio.  These two are both officers in the military currently stationed at Fort Hood.  They have enlisted the help of wedding planner, Dayna Tooley, so that planning from afar would be easier for Eugenia.  They came in town last weekend for another whirlwind planning weekend and met with me on Saturday, booked on Sunday then we shot engagement photos on Monday.  They also nailed down their cake, DJ did a tasting at The Modern and a few other things.  Michael is moving on to his next assignment, far from Texas, so these two will only see each other a few more times between now and their April wedding.  I just adored them, their goofy sense of humors and how they love on one another.  Here are some of my favorites and I can’t wait for the Fort Worth Wedding at The Modern next year!

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

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!

Allison – Model Bride in Fort Worth

When I think of brides laying in the grass I usually think sweet, this image does have that but also has some major power and strength in those eyes!

This weekend Allison and James were married at Robert Carr in Fort Worth so I can FINALLY share some of her delicious bridal portraits.  In the spring we played at the Art Museums in Fort Worth as well as a few of my favorite urban spots and a field.  I just love them, here are her Fort Worth Bridal Portraits.  Wedding photos to come soon!

Callie & Jason Engaged!

Callie and Jason are such a fun couple.  I knew from the moment I met Callie at the Best in Bridal Show in Fort Worth that this girl would be awesome to work with.  She proved me right at her engagement session as shooting her, Jason and their adorable little boy topped my list of fun for last week.  Jason, like many grooms, claims to not be so good in front of the camera but he really did so great!  I find most guys relax just loving on their favorite people and he melted at moments with Callie and Brady.  Their little boy stole my heart and made me even more excited about my little boy who is coming in a few weeks.  You two were so hot and I know the wedding in April is going to be a blast, see you guys soon and I can’t wait to see how big Brady is by the wedding!

So beautiful and in love.

Dawn & Josh were married at University Christian Church in Fort Worth with a smashing reception to follow at The Modern.  Great couple, great food, great band (Trey & the Tritones) and the list goes on = a fun filled day of fabulous photos.  From the moment I met Dawn I knew her wedding would be a beautiful day and I was so excited to get to be a part of it.  Dawn and Josh live out in Lubbock so they did all their planning on short trips home and relied are their awesome Mom’s to help along the way with all the details.  Here are some of my favorite moments and details from their wedding day!

Christina & Andrew had an AWESOME wedding on August 8th at the Robert Carr Chapel and City Club Fort Worth.  We started off the day hanging out at the Ashton Hotel in down town Fort Worth where Christina prepped in their presidential suite.  This room was to die for (especially the bath) so if you are looking for a place to spend your wedding night I highly suggest this posh room.  The light was amazing and her flower girl and juinior bridesmaid made me laugh non stop with their antics.

Once at the church and the dress by Bliss Bridal was on, Christina and Andrew had their first look in the sanctuary.  They were so excited to see each other and exchange gifts and spend some time one on one before their vows.  Robert Carr is such a pretty church with great big windows that make the wedding photos in my opinion, their ceremony was special because of the the personal vows they wrote each other.  Sorry Andrew, Christina’s were funnier than yours.

On our way to City Club we stopped by the Fort Worth Modern for a few quick romantic shots before they headed into their party leed by the fabulous MC, Randall Stout.  The food, signature cocktails and all the service by City Club was top notch and the floral by A Magic Moment was perfect.  The whole night was a smashing success and I am so thrilled to share some of their fabulous details and special moments from their day.

I love her gown by Bliss Bridal hanging in the amazing bath room at The Ashton, so posh!

I love when my couples have fun on their way out of the church, enjoying each other and for the first time looking around to see who is there.
