Kristen and Brett

Kristen and Brett are getting married! We took a few engagement photos today and I just have to share.
They are such a happy beautiful couple and I love that they are from my Red Raider Nation :)
 We started out at a pretty little park I had never been to before with a great gazebo.
Then we took one of their bikes and went to Lakeside park.
 I love the bridge at Lakeside park and it's funny we were all looking on the internet for engagement ideas with a bicycle and we all found this particular idea independently so we had to see what we could do. I like it.
and I like this too :)
 A few at the park without the bike, so sweet.
 Finally we went to the site of their first date. I love trying to incorporate a special place into engagement photos so that they are more than just pretty pictures. I don't think Kristen and Brett will ever forget their first date nor will they forget the hecklers that were telling them how to pose for photos from the patio of the restaurant. One lady even got up and came into the street to give us some "advice". We didn't take her advice, but I think we did pretty good ;)
Congratulations Kristen and Brett! I can't wait for your wedding!

Stephanie and Chris are married!

Last night I had the honor of photographing Stephanie and Chris' amazing wedding at the Hickory Street Annex in Fort Worth. They are such a wonderful couple and I am lucky enough that I've known Stephanie for about 8 years now. She was one of my students, moved to New York, went to college, met Chris and they moved back Texas to start their journey as husband and wife together. I love being a part of my students lives beyond the day they leave my classroom. Stephanie's a special one and she found the perfect man for her. Here's a peek at happiness...
The beautiful couple. I love them.
 We took a little time before the ceremony to photograph each of them alone. Steph's photos were inside because it started to rain but we got lucky after that and the rain went away and we were able to take all the rest of the photos outside. Yay!
 Chris and Stephanie's brothers show off their matching socks.
 The ceremony was held upstairs in front of a wall of windows. It was stunning. I love this moment right after the kiss..their expressions are priceless.
And this moment...makes me cry. It's just the sweetest.
 Picture time and the flower girl wanted nothing to do with it. I think it's super cute anyway. The ring bearer...he's all about the photos though. Look at that grin.
The gorgeous girls.
 The amazing guys.
 The whole faboulous wedding party.
Some alone time for Chris and Stephanie. Stephanie's matron of honor was awesome. I asked her to go intot he reception and grab me the "B" and the state pictures from the entry and she sprinted off in heels. Rachel, can you come to every wedding with me?
First dance under the Japanese lanterns.
Congratulations Chris and Stephanie. I love you guys! I'll get the rest of your photos edited soon.
