A Dallas bridal photography session at this stunning chapel was a dream come true! The high wooden beams throughout and the floor to ceiling windows are a huge bonus. The windows facing out to the woods really creates a surreal feeling in the chapel. Bringing the best of both worlds, nature and architecture. Soft greens behind a bride creates really pretty contrast in images. The architecture in chapels can really help bring some drama to bridal photography. I am especially fond of getting wide shots where the bride is centered in the shot.
There are so many benefits to booking a bridal session! I really enjoy when a bride wants to shoot her bridal session in the same venue that the wedding will be taking place. Booking a bridal photography session is a blessing to your photographer! They give us the chance to master our settings based on the venue before the wedding. I also really enjoy the consistent loo it brings to all of your wedding day related galleries.
Benefits of a bridal session
Having a bridal session is a great way to really cherish the moments you get to wear your wedding dress! The actual wedding day can go by so quickly, it is worth it to have an entire session dedicated to the dress of your dreams. Many little girls dream of their wedding dress and wonder what it will look like, it just isn’t fair to only wear it on one day. A bridal session can also be a great opportunity for a final hair and makeup trial before the big day. It is so helpful to be able to see the hair and makeup as it appears on camera ahead of time!
Mrs. Fender’s bridal session took place at Rosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek in Dallas. The Rosewood Mansion is a breathtaking space with incredible floor to ceiling windows, and timeless charm. With a huge variety of areas to take photos, from gorgeous hallways to the outdoor spaces, Mrs. Fender’s bridal session was a photographers dream come true! The mansion was an amazing spot for Sara’s bridal session to take place, she radiates classic beauty and is the sweetest southern belle. With her simple and stunning bridal gown, Sara looked like an old Hollywood movie star in her wedding dress. I couldn’t think of a more fitting venue for Sara’s bridal session and wedding. I have to admit, I felt a little under dressed showing up in my normal photographer attire of leggings and nikes haha!
I love learning about my couples and how they got engaged! Sara and Nick’s engagement story is a cute one! Nick proposed to Sara at Branch and Bird in Downtown Fort Worth in late June of 2019. The proposal itself wasn’t a surprise, but the timing of it was! Sara had planned to have a group date night at Bass Hall with her friends, where vendors were to be serving all kinds of unlimited desserts. Nick asked Sara out to get appetizers before her friend date, and when it was just about time for them to leave the restaurant, Nick asked Sara to go check out the views. Branch and Bird is on the 12th floor of Frost Tower in downtown Fort Worth, so there are so great views! Nick then knelt down on one knee and asked the question! Sara said yes, and she told me she knew she would be happy when it happened, but had no idea the extent of the joy that she would feel!
I just love their proposal story, it fits them and you can tell how much they adore each other. I cannot wait to share more about Sara and Nick’s love story when I post their wedding blog soon!
I have been waiting on pins and needles to share sweet Kenzie’s bridal session. I knew from her adorable personality and love for details that she would pick an amazing dress and have a few extra things to make her bridals super special. I definitely wasn’t disappointed! Her gorgeous, lace, fitted gown from Providence Place fit her like a glove. She also brought along the perfect boho hat and cathedral veil. I added the peacock chair and we were good to go.
The woodsy park complimented her session beautifully and even went perfectly with the theme of her wedding (it was yesterday and utterly gorgeous, I can’t wait to share).
I always recommend bridal sessions to my future brides! I love them! I know it’s more of a southern thing and sometime we don’t always want all the attention on just us but it’s so magical being able to get all dolled up in your gown more than once and feel like a princess.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from the session.
I have been dying to share Hayley’s stunning bridal session at the The Springs Rockwall Manor since I drove away from the venue. Of course, I had to be patient and now that Mr. and Mrs. Grisham are finally officially married (the wedding was gorgeous by the way, I will 100% be sharing once it’s done) I can finally show off these bridals!
Here are some of my favorite shots of the new Mrs. Grisham’s session…
Mr. and Mrs. Walker finally said their vows this weekend in a beautiful, intimate ceremony at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden in Dallas, Tx. Even though it rained 90% of the day, as soon as Samantha saw Stephen at the end of that isle nothing else mattered. Her words exactly.
Now that the wedding is over, I can finally share this gorgeous bridal session I shot with Samantha and her two girls, Kaylee and Teagan, last month at the same venue.
Here’s are a few of my favorite photos from the new Mrs. Walker’s bridal session. Stay tuned for the wedding blog in a few weeks!
