Mrs. Grisham | Bridal Session | The Springs Rockwall Manor

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…

John + Carolyn | Engagement Session | Flower Mound, Tx

Here in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex we have had almost nonstop rain lately. Good for the greenery, bad for photographers who like to shoot in the yummy outdoor sunlight. Funny thing is, it was consistently on the weekend. Like the weather knew that’s when all photographers are the busiest. Thanks Mother Nature!

So when the rain cleared up, it was finally time to shoot John and Carolyn’s engagement session. The session went perfectly and I think I will require everyone to wear sequins because OMG SO GORGEOUS!

I cannot wait for their wedding at the Marty Leonard Chapel later this month! That venue is on my photographers bucket list and I’m over the moon about the opportunity to shoot there.

Here are some of my favorite shots from John and Carolyn’s beautiful sunset engagement session in Flower Mound, Texas.

The Walker Wedding | Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden| Dallas, Tx

Some weddings aren’t big at all and that’s just fine. You only really need a handful of things. An officiant, a witness or two, and a couple that’s ready to spend their lives together. This wedding had all of those plus a little bit more.

It seems only fitting that since I’ve been with them from the very beginning, from the maternity to the bridals,  that I would be there for Stephen and Samantha’s beginning as man and wife.

They say that rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck, well if that’s true, then these two are set forever.

Here are some of my favorite moments from the Walker wedding on August 11, 2018 at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.

Congratulation y’all!

The Lucas Wedding | Cross Creek Ranch | Parker, Tx

My second wedding of my 2018 super, crazy, busy wedding season was for Kristen and Jack. The most adorable couple you’ll ever meet.

These two love birds met at Christ Churches youth group when they were in high school, fell in love, spent every moment together, until finally Jack proposed to Kristen under the Century Tree on the Texas A&M campus in September of 2017.

The ceremony was held at Christ Church Plano on July 28, 2018. It was a beautiful sunny day and the church was full of light. Like the whole world was smiling just for these two. They both agreed that saying our vows was the most memorable moment of the entire day and at that venue, it was definitely breathtaking.

After the ceremony the entire party met at the gorgeous Cross Creek Ranch in Parker, Texas for some food, fun, and lots of dancing. I’ve never seen a group so excited to dance to the song Africa. I loved it! Jack and Kristen never left each others side for a moment. You couldn’t help but smile at how in love they are.

Thank you and congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Lucas! I was so honored to be a part of your big day.

Mrs. Walker | Bridal Session | Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden

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!

The Davis Wedding | The Springs Event Venue | Weatherford, Tx

The end of 2017 was insanity. So many sessions, so much editing, and so many WEDDINGS! Not to mention being super pregnant at the time definitely made it a tad bit more challenging. Now that we are well into 2018, and Baby Daphne is finally here, I can enjoy a little breather and blogging time!

Sandy and Joshua were married at The Springs Event Venue in Weatherford, Tx. It had been rainy and cold the week before but this particular Sunday was sunny, gorgeous, with a little bit of a chill in the air.

Pulling up to the venue, I was immediately excited because of how beautiful it was. The decorations were perfect for a winter wedding. A little rustic but oh so chic and whimsical. The bride and groom, looked like two lovebirds out of a fairy tale.

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Davis! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your big day!

The Ayala Wedding | Oak Water Ranch | Granbury, Tx

 

It was the perfect October day for a wedding at the gorgeous Oak Water Ranch in Granbury, Tx. I was so excited that the day had finally come for Alexis and Edric, the sweetest couple imaginable. I arrived early to scope out the place and saw all of the wonderful engagement photos we took together back in January displayed on every table in the room. You can see that adorable session here actually! We had a blast on that super cold morning.

All of the flowers, decorations, and tiny details were perfect. The greens and reds were beautiful together. The bouquet…to die for! And OMG, that DRESS! (Alexis, you were gorgeous).

The wedding went off without a hitch, minus some crazy winds earlier in the day. From the first look to the last dance. The ceremony was traditional but sweet and afterwards everyone had so much fun partying the night away under the stars. The perfect day. Congratulations you to the new Mr. and Mrs. Ayala! It was such an honor to play a small part of your love story!

Here are some of my favorite moments from that day…
