he’s her lobster | fort worth wedding photography

I asked these two what there expectations were for their wedding photography, and they said, “Our engagement pictures speak for themselves.” Working with these two from start to finish was smooth and easy. These two have serious chemistry. And, wow on the night before at their rehearsal dinner at Joe T. Garcia’s, it was clear how much their friends love and adore them. Cheers to a lifetime of happiness, Julia & Tim.

Remember that Friends reference: “He’s her lobster.” Well, Tim is Julia’s lobster.

University Christian Church is serious about the sanctity of marriage. Many thanks to my team up in the balcony who were second and third shooting.

I always like to carve out a few minutes between the wedding and the reception for the couple. How grounding before you party with hundreds of your closest friends!

winery wedding | Walla Walla, Washington destination wedding

I’d not heard of Walla Walla, Washington until this couple asked me to travel to photograph their wedding. It’s a region close to their wine loving hearts. Just a few hours east of Portland, the drive along the Columbia River was absolutely stunning. Maybe someday I’ll blog the photos from that journey. And the town has as much charm as Napa. A must see for wine lovers. This couple has been together for nearly nine years. They waited for their kids to grow up to marry. What fun! And their kids are super sweet and supportive. They’ll celebrate their nuptials in their hometown in less than a couple weeks.

a courthouse wedding | fort worth elopement

They contacted me to take some photos at the Fort Worth Water Gardens – after they eloped. And, I was happy to oblige, but I confessed, “I’ve always wanted to photograph a courthouse wedding.” They agreed, and I was so grateful. I don’t think I slept much the night before. The Fort Worth Courthouse is so beautiful, inside and out – as are these two. She’s a Lululemon yogini. He’s a crossfitting litigator. They met by chance – or was it divine design? – in Dallas. Together, they recently moved to the Fort. And on a beautiful Friday morning, they married, with me as their witness. What a dream!

moondance : a ranch engagement | fort worth wedding photographer

I get a bad rap from my friends about my obsession with Van Morrison. I just love his songs – like all of them…even the obscure ones you’ve never heard. And as I was editing this stunning ranch engagement, I thought of the song, “Moondance.” Many of my yoga friends follow the astrology patterns and moon phases with fervor. I’m more apt to stay up all night writing or editing photos and then realize as dawn breaks, “Oh, it’s a full moon…that explains it.”

We had to reschedule this shoot a couple times due to the weather, but I’m so glad we got the day we did. That light. That moon. This beautiful couple. All of it alchemized to create some amazing art.

He’s a 5th grade teacher. Isn’t that cute? And anybody who’s spent any stretch of time in a public school, hospital, institution of any sort knows that the crazies come out to play on a full moon. What a blessing to spend an evening with these two – who are anything but crazy…except in love. They’ll marry in June. Clearly, the dogs are excited. And I can’t wait.
