Eric's Bar Mitzvah

Last night I had the pleasure of photographing Eric's Bar Mitzvah at Temple Emanu-El. What a fun family! Jeffery from Spice of Life Catering was awesome to work with and he turned the recemtion hall into pure Emazing. Yes, I said Emazing...the Eric's Emazing Evening. Here's a peek.
Eric and the Torah
 Love this one with the shadow that shows his profile.
 We had lots of time before the service so we we able to get everyone up on the Bimah for a beautiful family photo.
 Eric and his awesome mom.
We took some traditional photos but they wanted to do some fun ones too. I love the stained glass at temple Emanu-El, it's one of my favorite backgrounds.
Mom wanted to try a serious face pose and they nailed it.
 One more non-traditional family photo. This one in the seats. Its puts the focus on Eric...Perfect.
  Now on to the gorgeous reception. The lighting in the room was out of this world. The tables are custom built with lights inside them, I've never seen anything quite like this.
 The adult tables had white flowers in vases on silver pedestals.
And the Kids side of the height lit tables with cylinders of fish. The fish were swimming in lit up water...super cool!
 I've got lots of party photos to edit but I wanted to share the Hora ones with you today. I love that it worked out that Eric's brother and dad were right in the front of  this photo.
 Last one...fist pump. You did it Eric! Fabulous job today.

You know I love to photograph sports and it's been a busy few weeks. Here are a few highlights.
Last night's Dunbar vs Birdville game was lead on DFW Varsity
 with a nice little slideshow as well.
The team photo I took of TCU volleyball was on the home page of last week.
 Until they started their weekend tournament and then they replaced it with an action photo from the game.
 There was a nice little slideshow as well. This team is so much fun to photograph.
 and I saw a few old photos form Dallas Cowboys games I shot show up in the internet.
Lower Hudson used a photo from last year's Cowboys Giants game.
and News Oklahoma used a photos from the Cowboys vs Bengals game this preseason.
Thanks for looking. I'll be on the Sports beat again next week and weekend. TCU volleyball has a big game against Texas Wednesday...go out and watch a game, it's a great atmosphere!

Carly's a cutie!

Today I got to meet the sweetest little 8-day-old sweetie, Carly. I photographed her parent's wedding last year and now they are a perfect little family of three :)
She really is just precious laying on a handmade quilt.
 Both of her parents are Aggies so we did a few with their Aggie rings and a maroon and white tutu. We also listened to Robert Earl Keene through the whole session and I'm pretty sure if Robert Earl Keene is your lullaby you are a future Aggie...Carly loved it.
 With mommy...
...and Daddy
 love these two as well. The pink and grey is so calm and pretty.
 A perfect sleepy baby and perfect little toes.
Finally, I remembered their bedroom form the day I shot Adrienne getting ready for her wedding and I knew I wanted to photograph them with the baby on the bed reflected in this mirror in the corner of the room...they are simply perfect.
Congratulations Adrienne and Jordan! Carly is beautiful.

Megan + Brady = Love

Last night I had the pleasure of photographing Megan and Brady's wedding at Sanford House in Arlington. When I say they were a fun wedding party...I mean it! They danced down the aisle and wore yellow sunglasses for their photos. We had so much fin at their wedding. Here's a peek.
 Megan and Brady have so much fun together. I love this candid moment from their post ceremony portraits. Aren't they adorable?
 The bling!
So they really did dance in...I wasn't kidding about that. It was awesome!
 Wearing yellow sunglasses and checkered Vans, Brady waits for his bride, and she was all smiles when she saw him. Love!
 The Sanford House is a gorgeous outdoor venue.
 The best man "lost" the ring. And as a twist on the usual the last groomsman walked up and did the magic trick where he pulled the ring from behind the best man's ear. Awesome! I also love the ring bearer just running around. He's their super cute two-year-old son. He didn't hang with us for very many photos but the ones we did get of him are priceless.
...Like this one. Hello everyone, I know there are some people getting married back there but look at me :) Cute!
 Laughter and Love. That's what it's all about.
 And they danced back down the aisle :)
 The wedding party...
 ...was awesome!
And Megan and Brady are perfect.
 Congratulations Megan and Brady. I'll have the rest of your photos edited soon!

Lori and Ron

Last Sunday Lori and Ron got married. It was a beautiful intimate ceremony at the Northeast Wedding Chapel. Here's a peek.
 Aren't they gorgeous?
She was standing outside the door waiting to come in and they made eye contact. It was so sweet.
...and then she came in, stunning.
Its so easy to work at the Northeast Wedding Chapel and we were able to get both their faces as the looked at each other during the ceremony. Check out that banner too. Lori made it herself, she told me she colored each letter in with Sharpie, now that is a labor of love! It was the perfect backdrop for their wedding.
They had the best man and matron of honor pray with them. Love this!
The kiss!
 Finally a few family photos. Ron has five daughters and they were game to have a little fun with the photos. What a super cute family :)
 Congratulations Lori and Ron! I'll have the rest of your wedding edited soon.
