Jessie and Aaron – Fort Worth Wedding

The day started with me meeting Jessie down at the Courtyard by Marriott in Fort Worth.  Her hair and make up artist had just started to get her prepped so we had some time to get some nice shots beforehand.  Brides often ask me for advice on whether to get a hair and makeup artist and I always emphatically tell them, yes.  It’s one less thing to stress about and it gives you time to relax and take in your thoughts, so to all soon-to-be-brides, get a professional Hair and Makeup Artist.  I have a few that I work with that are top-notch with wonderful personalities.

Back to the wedding, after working with Jessie at the hotel, I headed over to Art Space 111.  It’s small art gallery that can handle small events and it’s a really cool,  unique place.  The ceremony was really nice with both Jessie and Aaron saying their, very well thought out and touching vows.   Aaron did I really good job for a Pittsburgh fan.  I really didn’t expect much but he did do well.  (Me and Aaron still talk quite a bit and I annually hand him losses in our fantasy football and baseball leagues. )

After the ceremony we headed downtown and got some really great shots despite it being around 20 outside.  I stopped traffic for a few and we ran into Santa Claus for a quick photo-op.  So glad they were both game to take the time and brave the elements for some terrific shots.

Diane and Jake – Denton Wedding

This was a really sweet and close knit wedding.  Diane and Jake’s ceremony was at the really nice church in Denton followed by a small intimate  reception, with close friends and family at Art 6 coffee house.  One of the reoccurring themes I continually run in to is when the bride and groom some how incorporate where their first date or a favorite spot is incorporated into their wedding or engagement photos.  I think it’s a great idea and I often encourage couples to do this.  The wedding day is about you two and your special bond.  Any place that can tie that in is always a good idea.  Art 6 coffee shop has since closed but the earlier memories of Jake & Diane’s gatherings there and the images I took of their reception, will always remind them of those special days.

Juli & Matthew – Dallas Tower Club Wedding

Juli and Matt had a really large wedding party.  To date, the largest I’ve ever covered, 26 total!  The Bridesmaids wore purple while the Groomsmen wore traditional tuxedos with Airwalk sneakers.  I had a ton of fun covering their day and the reception at the Dallas Tower Club was phenomenal!

Monique & Joe – Shops of Legacy engagements

No, Monique and Joe are not professional models, just a beautiful couple that as you can see are very much in love.  I had never shot at the Shops of Legacy so I didn’t know what to expect.  It’s a place where Monique and Joe like to go on dates and just hang out with friends, so it was a special place to them.  I always encourage couples to photograph at places that are meaningful to them.  It helps with easing the nerves of having their picture taken and makes them more comfortable with the whole process.   We had a great time and finished off the session with a great glass of riesling.
