D Weddings Tablescape Favorites I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season! Aynsley and I were fortunate enough to catch our breath for a few days before getting the New Year underway, and we are so excited to see what 2013 has in store! There are a few built-in bits of excitement, such as the birth of our first child!

Dallas Wedding Photography: Allison & Spencer's Wedding Hey guys, I wanted to share one of my recent weddings with you all. Allison and Spencer were married at Highland Park United Methodist Church in Dallas, and had their reception at City Club Dallas. They are a great couple to be around, are super relaxed and easygoing, and were very fun to photograph for this Dallas wedding photographer.

Ashlee & Josh's Wedding at the DMA Ashlee and Josh were such a fun and beautiful couple to photograph. Their wedding story began at the Dallas Museum of Art with their engagement session, and a few months later they would say “I do” at the same location. 

Amanda & Chad's Wedding! This wedding was different than most I have photographed as a Dallas wedding photographer. The ceremony was at 11:00 AM and the reception began at 7:00 PM that evening. Amanda and Chad wanted their wedding ceremony and reception at those particular locations so to make it all work they had to have some downtime in between. 

Dallas Wedding Photography: Andrew and Lane As you all may know, the summer is the time for weddings, and being a Dallas wedding photographer, I absolutely love it! I hang out with cool couples and make memories, it really is (almost) that simple! 

Beautiful Wedding Photography at the Dallas Arboretum Josh and Tabby’s wedding at the Dallas Arboretum was in the Woman’s Garden, which is set right below the incredibly DeGolyer House. Everything from the reflecting pools to the fountains, to the great view of White Rock Lake help add to the serenity and calm of this spot, and add such beauty to an already beautiful occasion.

Dallas Wedding Photographer, A Modern Wedding I am a wedding photographer in Dallas, but often get to make my way west for Fort Worth wedding photography. Haylie and James were one such wedding. Haylie loves everything modern, so the Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth was a natural choice to suit her tastes.

Dallas Wedding Photographer, Unique Bridal Bouquet Well, in today’s Dallas wedding photographer blog, I am going to show you all my bridal bouquet. My bouquet looks the exact same way it did nearly three years ago on my wedding day. No, I did not use fake flowers.

Official Wedding Photographer for Royal Wedding As I mentioned the bride and groom selected Hugo Burnand as their official wedding photographer. Not only was he shooting the Royal family but Kate herself is an avid photographer.

Dallas Wedding Photographer, Leah and Andrew! One of my favorite images from the day was the moment right before Leah walked down the aisle. All of the emotions hit right at that moment, and I just loved how she was laughing/crying while all of her bridesmaids whirled around to take care of her.

Dallas Wedding Photographer, Wedding Reception Food of 2010 Ahh, food. This may be one of my favorite categories to write about, simply because I am a total foodie and do quite a bit of editorial food photography. Weddings contain so many beautiful details, and one of the most important is certainly the food.

Dallas Wedding Photographer, Wedding Dresses of 2010 With the close of 2010 Dallas wedding photographer Jason Kindig and I thought it would be fun to take a look back over weddings from the past year. As we looked over weddings from 2010 we wanted to focus on some of our favorites from various categories. Today we are moving on to the centerpiece of weddings: the bride and her gown.

Dallas Wedding Photographer, Wedding Cakes of 2010 The wedding cake is another critical component to the reception. Upon arriving at the reception, wedding guests are first greeted by the beautiful bridal portrait and then they are ushered into the reception where the cake is one of the featured items.

Dallas Wedding Photographer, Wedding Flower Arrangements of 2010 While there are a few exceptions to the rule, most weddings you attend are bursting with beautiful flowers from the moment you enter the church to the last goodbyes at the wedding reception. Flowers are a big deal when it comes to weddings!

Dallas Wedding Photographer, Favorites from 2010 As an artist and Dallas wedding photographer, one of my favorite aspects of weddings is the creativity that fully captures the couple’s personality. There is nothing like walking into a room and seeing how the décor, flowers, color choices and more are a tangible expression of the bride and groom.

Dallas Wedding Photographer, Danny & Heather! One of the greatest things about being a Dallas wedding photographer is the opportunity to hang out with people that are incredibly happy for eight to ten hours straight. Everyone looks perfect, the venue and decorations are gorgeous, and everyone dances like crazy.

Dallas Wedding Photographer & Joy and Adam’s Wedding! We had the opportunity to photograph Joy and Adam’s beautiful Austin wedding, and thought you guys might like to see the images! With all of the beautiful scenery surrounded us, the only thing we had to worry about was the 103+ degree heat outside! 

Fort Worth Wedding Photography, Marcia and Seth! Marcia and Seth had their wedding at the historic Hilton Fort Worth. Though I am a Dallas wedding photographer, I do several weddings in Fort Worth in addition to magazine and commercial work, so shooting out in Cowtown is definitely familiar territory for me.

Dallas Wedding Photography, Beautiful Moments On Their Special Day There are so many great moments from this wedding from the elegant bridal session outside of the church to the quiet moments of the bride as she prepares to walk down the aisle.

Wedding Photography, Whats On Your Menu The wedding menu is a big deal. Couples spend a lot of time coming up with what they want to serve their guests that not only tastes great but also captures their personalities. Lately, the wedding menu has gotten more creative, fun and exciting.

Wedding Photography, A Warning to All of You Brides to Be This morning started off like any other. I woke up and got on my computer to catch up on the day’s events. While looking over the headlines the words “frustrated brides”caught my eye. The article was talking about a bride’s worst nightmare: Never receiving her wedding photography.

Ashlee's Lovely Bridal Portraits In meeting with Ashlee for her bridal portraits she told me what she was looking for and then I came up with location ideas for her. Since she was an out of town bride, she needed my help to find the perfect location. She was looking for a large space, preferably a warehouse style space.

Dallas Bridal Portraits at the Lake As with all of our brides, I like to sit down and have a discussion with my brides, be it face to face or over the phone, so that I know exactly where they want to be photographed, and the look they are going for. 

Bridal Portraits at The Dallas Arboretum Tabby was going to have her wedding at the Dallas Arboretum, so it was a natural choice to photograph her bridals there as well. She wanted more of a classic look, so we kept things simple and elegant. 

Dallas Wedding Photographer: 6 Tips For Flawless Bridal Portraits There are two times in your life that you will be the beautiful blushing bride. One will be the most magical day of your life, the day which you walk down the aisle before all of your friends and family. 

Dallas Wedding Photographer, Leah’s Bridals! When discussing ideas for locations, several thoughts flew around, one of which was her father’s boat. Though it didn’t seem like the boat idea would work out, we decided it would be fun to keep going with the boat/water/nature theme for her bridals.

Dallas Bridal Portraits at Hotel ZaZa As a Dallas wedding photographer, I did her bridal session on the day of her wedding after she had just received a stunning gift from her husband-to-be. He surprised her with a yellow diamond necklace which he had specially designed for his bride.

Dallas Bridal Session, Slithering Snakes with a Bride on the Rocks In typical fashion Jason and I arrived early for Katie’s bridal photography to scout for perfect locations to photograph the beautiful bride. We were shooting in a beautiful set of gardens, which have a lush landscape that is perfect for bridals.

Bridal Photography, From Bridals to Fashion Shoot Caroline is the type of bride you dream of photographing, so when she asked Jason to photograph her bridal we both knew we were in for some fun. You see the second Caroline put on her wedding dress she instantly transformed into a model and a beautiful model at that!

Dallas Bridal Portraits, Joy! As is the case with many of our brides, Joy was not used to being professionally photographed, but by the end she was definitely getting her moves down, and introducing a lot of sassiness (is that a word?) into the scene.

Dallas Bridal Portraits: Bird Dogs + Birds + Shotgun = ? When we arrived at the lake there was entire entourage of people on hand for this bridal production. Her best friends were there along with her three very lively labs. The dogs were going wild as we were at one of their favorite locations, a lake full of ducks ready to be retrieved!

Dallas Bridal Photography, Meets Bridal Fashion Then there are the times that I do fashion photography of professional models, my favorite of which being when bridals and fashion intersect. Fashion shoots are great, because you have a talented set of hair and makeup artists present, art directors, and assistants flying all over the place to adjust lighting and grip equipment.

Dallas Engagement Portraits: Brian and Monica! As always, I cannot say it enough: engagement portraits are the best. Most couples don’t have much experience in front of the camera, and these portraits are a great warm-up. It also allows me to get to know the couple and observe how they interact.

Ashlee & Josh's Engagement Portraits at the DMA As a Dallas wedding photographer I have found that the way to photograph as successful engagement session is to just let the couple be themselves. The most beautiful engagement portraits come from capturing a couple’s natural chemistry. 

Dallas Engagement Portraits in an Urban Oasis! I am a Dallas wedding photographer, which means that I have the incredible opportunity to work with so many great couples that are in love, and love to have fun! Lane and Andrew definitely fit the bill, as they are so dedicated to each other, and are also equally dedicated to cracking themselves up and having a blast.

Dallas Wedding Photographer, Lane and Andrew are Engaged! It was the perfect plan. After all, everyone was unavailable, it was an incredibly inconvenient weekend, and there was no way to get friends and family together for any kind of event, much less a wedding proposal. At least it seemed as such on the surface.

Dallas Engagement Photography, Love on a Trolley When we met Leah and Andrew there was an immediate connection. It is always amazing when you get to work with such a wonderful and fun couple! Leah was one of the brides that had pretty much everything under control. When it came time for her Dallas engagement photography and bridal sessions, she wanted a little help in pulling her ideas together.
