Family & Maternity Session at White Rock Lake

I’m a bit late in posting my spring & summer photography sessions as work and life have been SO hectic, but I’m pleased to admit that no one’s turnaround time for receiving their images have suffered – only my little blog!

 

With that being said, there’s no greater honor than my couples returning to me time and again for their milestone sessions; from engagement, boudoir, bridal, wedding, and on.. We decided to combine some family portraits along with some maternity photos and do a mix of candid and traditional pictures. As for the  location, we had shot their engagement session in the fall several years ago at White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas and, knowing that the wildflowers would be blooming, it was an obvious choice for sentimental value along with natural beauty. We were also fortunate to have gorgeous, fluffy clouds for our backdrop which gave us a pretty epic sunset. I hope you enjoy!

 

Brooke & Kaleb’s Pop-up Carnival Engagement Session

You know those cute, little  carnivals and fairs that pop-up around the Dallas Fort Worth area? Well, they make a pretty fantastic location for fun, playful, & unique engagement sessions! I was thrilled when Brooke & Kaleb emailed me saying they wanted something a little different for their engagement session. I had so much fun with them and I can’t wait for their wedding in 2019!

 

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!
