Megan and Christian’s Bishop Arts engagement session in Dallas was a total blast! Megan and Christian knew they wanted to shoot in the Bishop Arts District since it was where they had their very first date. I loved this idea and was so stoked to shoot in this eclectic area of Dallas. Megan and Christian are the sweetest couple! They will be getting married in Puerto Rico this June, which sounds absolutely incredible!
why bishop arts is so great for sessions
The Bishop Arts District in Dallas is a unique place! Several streets of fun bars, unique shops and picture perfect sidewalks. This area is booming during the weekend. I would definitely suggest shooting here on weekdays when possible. There are several insta-famous spots in Bishop Arts for photos. We had to shoot at a few of these spots! One of the best known spots in the Bishop Arts District is the “me + you = love” wall. I cannot express how perfect this spot is for engagement photos! This wall is always my go to for a fun loving couple. Especially if they are looking for something that will stand out and screams Dallas.
Nothing can beat the sidewalks in this district, each of the buildings is so picturesque and make for great backdrops without being too distracting. We got lucky with a gorgeous sunset for Megan and Christian’s engagement session, I love how well the sun comes through in this area! Sunsets can be hard to really get the best of in some urban environments, this area allows it to really shine through.
A small detail that I love about shooting in this part of Dallas is the trees lined with twinkle lights on the Main Street. When the sun starts to set and we move into blue hour, they make for the prettiest backdrop in images.
The Flores Fort Worth wedding at Four Eleven wedding Venue was one for the books! I really enjoy shooting at this venue as it is perfect for couples who want a one stop shop for their big day. Four Eleven has space for the ceremony and reception all in one. This venue has a unique vibe that couples and vendors alike fall in love with.
Christopher and Desiree
Christopher and Desiree got engaged in Rome, Italy in December of 2018. Talk about an absolute dream proposal! Desiree had been learning Italian prior to their Italy trip, so Christopher knew this would be a memorable place to ask her to be his forever. Christopher and Desiree had been out sightseeing and after getting a bit carried away wine tasting, headed to a romantic dinner. Christopher had placed coasters on the table that said “Desiree will you marry me!” in Italian! I think their proposal story is just the cutest, what a creative move on Christopher’s part!
Desiree and Christopher love soccer, true crime, Scotch, bowling, breweries and traveling together. I love that they are a couple that shares their passions with each other! This close bond is obvious to everyone around them and makes them such an easy couple to love.
For their wedding day, they chose a color scheme of black and navy with gold accents. Such a unique and stunning combination of colors for their decor! It is fun for me when I get to document a wedding day with so many special details. One of my favorite details from the Flores wedding are Desiree sparkly wedding shoes! These shoes were such a playful touch and not to mention so much more comfortable than traditional heels. I also really loved the embroidered handkerchief with their initials and wedding date.
Desiree and Christopher did a phenomenal job making their wedding day one to remember!
