Alexandra & Zane – Wedding Prep & First LookFort Worth Club & Kimbell Art Museum

Alexandra and Zane had the sweetest first look at Fort Worth Club.  Zane was already crying before he turned around to see Alexandra – he had me crying too!  It was the cutest!  Zane really loves her and you can tell in every action and word he speaks.  Alexandra looked gorgeous in her lace gown with illusion back and sides.  We had a blast after their reveal at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth for photos with the bridal party, family and of course some romantics.  God was watching out for us as this day was forecast for tons and tons of rain – yet – I wore my red rain boots and the sun came out and just the right time for outdoor photos!  Sometimes I think the more prepared I am for rainy weather the less it rains.

Thanks to the vendor team who made this day so special:

Sara & Brock – Engagement Session at Botanic Gardens & Art MuseumsFort Worth, Texas

Brock and Sara have known one another a long time, they met in high school youth group but never really hung out.  Later though as they both choose University of Texas at Austin for college they were reconnected at one of Brock’s fraternity parties.  He asked her to the Texas – Oklahoma game sophomore year and now they have been dating 7 years!  They were engaged on their 7th anniversary, here is their proposal story:

“It was our 7 year anniversary and Brock told me we were going to get drinks and then go to dinner. So we were all dressed up and we show up and what I discovered was an apartment complex, and he said we were getting drinks on the roof. When we get to the top, he had pictures of us throughout the years lined up on the railing, and an aisle of candles with a sign at the end that said Brock and Sara. We were on top of South Side lofts, so we had a perfect view of the Dallas skyline, and he hired a photographer to take pictures while he was talking. Once he proposed our families popped out from hiding behind the side of the building!”

 

Their wedding next year at the Omni in Dallas with Meredith Commender of Significant Events is going to be amazing and I can’t wait!  This weekend 1 year to the day before they say I Do my team will be photographing their engagement party!

Megan & Dylan – First Look & PortraitsWedding Day in Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016

Just look at that!  See!  I am in love with this day and all the feelings that just bubbled over from start to finish.  Megan and Dylan chose to see each other before their TCU Robert Carr Chapel wedding ceremony.  We set up Dylan on the deck at The Omni Hotel Fort Worth as he awaited his bride.  He was so ready to see her and just before he turned around to see Megan I asked him what he thought her dress looked like, he nailed it!  Dylan knows his sweet Megan well, he said her gown was big and sparkly.  🙂 Love that!  When he turned these two both just burst out in tears of joy – their day had finally arrived!!!

After some emotion, hugging it out and catching up on their day we took some romantic portraits before heading over to the Kimbell Art Museum with the bridesmaids and groomsmen for some fun photo ops.  The clean lines and bright light colors of the architecture outside there perfectly balanced the reception space at The Modern Art Museum.  I really could just photograph these two for hours alone – they were so adorable.  But, they kind of needed to get to the chapel and get married so I had to let them go.

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!

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!

Kendall & Jason Engaged

Engagement Photo Urban Alley Fort Worth TexasKendall and Jason are getting married later this winter at Robert Carr Chapel and City Club of Fort Worth.  I was so excited to finally shoot their engagement session a few weeks ago as I got to know Jason and their fabulous cat, Cadbury.  Pets often take part in sessions but it was a whole new experience with this “model” cat.  Cadbury can be seen in Pier 1 ads on on several cat products.  He is an expert in front of the camera and he did much better than most animals.  Besides hanging out with Cadbury we visited the Kimball Art Museum, some of my favorite urban spots and TCU.  My favorite part of any session is when the groom makes any statement of enjoyment because most guys don’t LOVE time in front of the camera.  30 minutes in to the session Jason let me know that it wasn’t bad like he expected and it was easy just hanging out and loving on his girl.  Our shoots are not your boring old studio sessions and I am glad that Jason enjoyed it as I definitely did!  Here are some photos from their Fort Worth Engagement Session!

Caelan – Class of 2010

Sweet, Silly, Attitude and just Gorgeous!

Sweet, Silly, Attitude and just Gorgeous!

Caelan is a super sweet young lady from San Antonio who came up to Fort Worth for her senior portraits.  We had so much fun exploring some of my favorite locations for her many outfits.  We even spotlighted her field uniform for drill team at the Kimball Art Museum.  Her family joined in for the beginning of the shoot which you can see some pics of here but these are my favorite of Caelan as well as her slide show.

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.
