We shot Lexie and Jonathan’s engagement session at sunrise in Southlake last weekend. They flew in for the weekend just for this session and of course the weather forecast was predicting doom and gloom for the whole week leading up to the session. Cue freak out! I had a wedding the night before we were scheduled to shoot and when I got home and checked the weather for the next morning it was calling for thunderstorms at 8am, which would have seriously rained on our parade. Thankfully, the rain held out, and we even got a little bit of sun at the end! These two were so much fun that I’m pretty sure we could have rocked these photos even if it was storming! I don’t know that I’ve laughed that much before 9am….well, ever. I even found myself smiling again as I was uploading the photos once I got home because their smiles are so contagious!

Rachel and Jason were married in an outdoor ceremony in the Japanese Gardens at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens in Fort Worth. Their ceremony was at twilight and was so sweet and personal since Jason’s dad did the ceremony. Rachel looked like she stepped straight out of a fairy tale with her loose blonde cascading curls, her TO DIE FOR scalloped lace backless dress designed by Robert Bullock, and the most perfect “something blue” with her killer navy sparkly Louboutin pumps! Everyone from friends, family, and my fellow awesome vendors worked so great together to make this night amazing and it’s not a wedding that I will soon forget! As you look through these photos, I dare you not to fall in love with these two and their amazing family and friends. Theses people sure know how to celebrate a bride and groom!

There was a lot of suspense leading up to Melissa and Chad’s big day! At the beginning of the summer north Texas got more rain that we’ve seen in my lifetime. Lakes that used to be dry and cracked where all of the sudden so full that they were flooding roadways, and as it would turn out, they flooded Melissa and Chad’s original venue! After planning for months and months, they had to start over from scratch about two months before their wedding date once it was obvious the place they originally booked wasn’t going to be ready. To see how perfectly things turned out, nobody would have guessed it! Everything was absolutely perfect from the flowers, to the gorgeous rustic venue filled with twinkle lights.

Amanda and Steve’s wedding was one of the most heartfelt, laid back, sincere, awesome days. Not only are they two of the coolest people you’ll meet, but their family and friends that surrounded them that day were just as great! There was no stress, no fuss. Just plenty of love, craft beer, a gourmet food truck, a rocking old timey band, and a big white tent nestled between centuries old oak trees at the French Legation Museum. When storms literally blew in and knocked the power out at the end of their reception, everyone was still joyous and on a high from the love the witnessed and celebrated that day. To top it all off, I got to have one of my favorite people ever there to second shoot for me. Nikki has many super powers, but the greatest one is that she can read minds and knows exactly where to be at what moment to get shots that are so great, they make me want to throw my camera in the trash!

I’ve been waiting 4 years for the chance to take these photos of my sweet cousin, Jennifer. That’s how long it took for this little miracle baby girl to happen and I just can’t wait for her to be born next month! We shot these gorgeous maternity photos at one of my favorite locations in Southlake. After stressing for a while on what to wear, it turns out I had a dress already hanging in my closet that wasn’t even a maternity dress that looked perfect! Jennifer has great style so she was able to accessorize it perfectly and we were both so happy with how the look came together. So, ladies, if you’re stressing over what to wear for your maternity photos, think outside the box. You might already have something perfect in your closet or you might be able to find something perfect in the regular ladies section that doesn’t carry the crazy mark up that a lot of nice maternity dresses do. This way you can even wear the dress still after you have your baby!
