Corlee & Michael – Wedding at The Carlisle Room

Corlee & Michael are an awesome couple and have been so much fun to work with! They met in class at Texas Tech Univeristy in Lubbock, Texas. Their wedding preparation was at the Magnolia Hotel in downtown Dallas (which has wonderful natural light), their ceremony was at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, and their reception was at The Carlisle Room. Holy Trinity is absolutely lovely inside with it’s stained glass windows and beautiful architecture. Built in the 1920’s, The Carlisle Room exhibits stunning art deco motifs. The centerpieces from Posh Floral Design were a wonderful compliment to the space and theme. Walter Fuentes created a fresh & romantic look for Corlee’s makeup and I just LOVE how he incorporated her perfect natural curls in her updo. As you can see from the reception images below, DJ Dylan kept the dancefloor packed with revelers all night long. It was an incredible event and I’m so happy for Corlee & Michael!

Shanna & Brandon – Maternity Photography

There is no bigger honor than receiving a request from a past bride & groom to document their maternity session. When I documented Shanna & Brandon’s wedding almost 5 years ago, I was around 36 – 37 weeks pregnant (we had a back up plan in case my little one arrived early) and their wedding was spectacular! Their love for each other was evident from the moment I met them and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to see these two still in love and still able to make each other (and me!) laugh. Congratulations on your little one, Shanna & Brandon! I’m so happy for you guys!

Beth + Chad – Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens

There are so many reasons I’m thankful for being a Dallas based wedding photographer and one reason is for the unique and gorgeous wedding venues we have all over the DFW area. One of my many favorites is Marie Gabrielle Restaurant & Gardens which is a lovely garden situated 4 floors up between downtown & uptown. Their food is incredible, their staff is superb, and the views… So Much Pretty!! To top off this gorgeous wedding, Beth & Chad included a really cool handmade alter, stunning florals from Petals Couture, a soft blush Maggie Sottero wedding dress, and Mike Mahnich kept the dance floor packed all night long.

I absolutely adored getting to know Beth & Chad, as well as their wonderful friends & family members. They’re a delightful couple and it was an honor to document this monumental time in their lives. I wish them all the love & happiness possible!

Theresa + John – Poetry Garden Wedding in the Dallas Arboretum

This was one of the sweetest, intimate weddings that I’ve documented in quite a long time! I may or may not have teared up during the ceremony. 😉

Theresa & John were married this past Friday in the Poetry Garden at the Dallas Arboretum. Theresa wore a gorgeous blue dress and her hair and make up were done by the oh-so-talented Walter Fuentes. Their ceremony was perfectly officiated by Rev. Al Taylor with Love Notes Weddings. It was a pleasure documenting this special day for such a wonderful couple!

Megan + Kyle – Modern Downtown Wedding

I just adore Megan & Kyle! We had a blast during their engagement session and, again, while shooting Megan’s gorgeous bridal session. I knew their entire wedding day would be filled with laughter, happy tears, sweet moments, and prettiness all over the place.  And it totally was.

Mega-thanks to Robyne of Southern Affairs for going the extra mile!
