How do a Texas girl and a Scottish boy fall in love? A great ocean divides them. This couple’s start occurred when they met on a mission trip. From that first meeting they kept in touch long distance. Eventually, the groom moved to Texas to be with his love. Their time together grew from there and here they are celebrating a wedding!

The groom’s family traveled from Scotland to take part in this special day. All of the groomsmen sported kilts and received lessons on how to wear “skirts.” It was pretty comical hearing the do’s and don’ts! DO sit with your knees together! DON’T spread your legs when you sit.

We also received lessons about Scotland, like a “bunnet” is a type of hat. It can be any hat, even a cowboy “bunnet!” Also, the men’s socks are hiding a small dagger, or pocket knife. Another fun thing to learn was that the father of the groom far preferred Scottish whiskey over Texas whiskey! It was really honoring to see two cultures unite. Parents from two countries joined to celebrate their children’s wedding.

The ceremony was performed in a gorgeous chapel with vibrant stain glass windows and cathedral ceilings. It was breathtaking! This little chapel sits on the campus of TWU next to a beautiful garden and green house. The location is nestled between college buildings and is a bit of a scavenger hunt to locate! That makes it the best location for a wedding, hidden and secluded.

Don’t you adore their matching shoes! I love how brides and grooms choose footwear to compliment their personality and help tell their story. These two chose wisely with comfortable tennis shoes!

Portrait Photography DFW- Year in Review 2019

So many wonderful experiences occurred this past year! My hope is that every year brings new opportunities, and 2019 definitely brought many adventures.

To start, I helped launch the Flower Mound Lakeside magazine’s first three issues by providing the front cover photography. This was exciting because, in my mailbox I received a printed material that I helped create! I also met notable people in the Flower Mound community.

Texas wildflowers are some of my favorite photography sessions. These beautiful blooms start appearing in late March. Different varieties emerge from March through July. Bluebonnets bloom first, followed by Indian Paintbrushes, and then black eyed Susans. If you are interested in wildflower sessions, I start posting about them in February / March! They go fast!

High school seniors! This year I photographed several seniors whom attended the elementary school where I taught! I even taught one of the seniors I photographed! It is hard to believe that much time has flown by! I know it is a trite saying, but it is so true. Time does fly!

Sun, sand, and salty air! I traveled to my home state of Florida to visit family and friends. While there I captured beach sunset sessions. Each evening the sky brings something new and beautiful. Also, the adrenaline gets going because most summer afternoons bring thunderstorms. They quickly pass and leave a vibrant sky in their trail.

Hear comes the bride! Yes, I expanded my wedding portfolio! Weddings are so fun to photograph. I love witnessing and documenting the stream of emotions at these events. Photographing the first look and bride and groom portraits are my favorite. Such raw feelings evolve from these moments.

Back to school sessions were a hit! Many kindergarten parents captured their child getting ready to start their school journey!

Starting in September, I began photographing “fall” sessions! This was a wonderful season filled with return clients as well as many new ones! I held designated dates for mini sessions, and also kept busy with full sessions. September through November is the busiest time of the year. I am so grateful to all the families who trusted me!

December slowed down, so I had an opportunity to photograph my own children. We even visited the very best Santa “Pappy” Clause in Plano. In addition, I photographed a sweet newborn baby, daughter of a female pastor. I am so in awe of watching this young mother and preacher set an example for women in leadership.

Senior portraits are great during the months of September through November, which means they compete with fall portraits! Spring senior photography is great from March through early May.

I had a wonderful time capturing the wedding of E and T. They were married at an adorable chapel in Denton. The greenery and woods surrounding it were perfect for natural light portraits.

We started with the “first look” between the bride and groom. It is a sweet time for them to calm their nerves before the hubbub of the wedding day. True emotions really prevail during this intimate time. I love seeing the bride and groom together during the first look.

What a special ceremony in a beautiful chapel. I captured these images from the balcony with my telephoto lens. I can take intimate portraits but still be far away to not distract from the beauty of the moment.

Wedding reception portraits are some of my favorites! The bride and groom have said their “I dos” and have eaten dinner. Their nerves are more relaxed!

What a fun reception! The glow wands made it really fun to photograph. Also, the dj provided a live accompaniment during a song! That was a cool way to pump up the energy.

The private last dance is a special moment between the bride and groom. They can enjoy time to themselves after constant adrenaline rushes from earlier in the day.

Wedding exits are so fun! The energy is contagious! This couple used streamers that pop out of tubes for their wedding exit. This makes it easier to clean up! They are quite fun, because everyone gets a little tangled in them, including the bride and groom!

Other exits I have seen include sparklers, paper airplanes, and LED wands! So fun!
