Two Caucasian brides holding hands, raising their opposite hands in celebration, and cheering in front of an outdoor painted mural at Artspace 111 in Fort Worth, Texas. One bride is wearing a detailed, floral, white wedding dress, a floral hairpiece, and a pearl necklace. The other bride is wearing a pink suit, white dress shirt, jeweled necklace, and a jeweled watch. The mural is of birds and flowers painted onto red brick.

Natalie and Taunya got married at Artspace 111, one of my absolute favorite venues in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  With 40 guests, they had a wonderfully small wedding under the stars, complete with a tree illuminated with twinkling lights. The whole day felt a little magical: a butterfly landed on Taunya’s head during portraits, and […]

Caucasian bride and groom processing down the aisle and smiling during their wedding ceremony at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas. The bride is wearing a detailed white wedding dress, a flowing white veil, and glittery heels. The groom is wearing a blue suit, white dress shirt, brown dress shoes, and boutonniere. Their officiant is standing behind them and off to the side and is wearing a black dress with black platform shoes. Wedding guests celebrate and watch on in the foreground while the bride and groom are backed by floral arrangements and trees.

Carolina and Stephen’s luxury elopement really showcased the qualities of weddings I love to photograph: small, personal, and full of love.  The ceremony and reception took place at the historic Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas and was full of sweet, beautiful details. From the white peonies and orchids in Carolina’s bouquet to the […]

Asian bride and groom walking down the aisle after the conclusion of their wedding ceremony. They are both smiling and celebrating while holding hands and reaching up into the air. The bride is wearing a detailed white dress, a floral hair piece, and holds a bouquet of white roses. The groom is wearing a blue suit, white dress shirt, pale pink tie, and boutonniere. They are surrounded by wedding guests who are also celebrating. In the background is the wedding officiant and large wooden wedding arch covered in flowers in front of a wooded background.

Toni Rose and Brian tied the knot in April 2021 at Arrowwood Events. It was a hot and humid Texas spring day that still turned out beautifully and very them, in keeping with their progressive and anti-racist ideals.  Their wedding was small and personal, with only close friends and family in attendance. The whole day […]

Gabby and Brandon, like many couples, had to adjust their plans thanks to a global pandemic. They’d originally postponed their courthouse wedding, but at the last minute they decided to go ahead and get married at the same park where we took their engagement shots—and where Brandon proposed! I had so much fun with Gabby […]

Valerie and Andrew’s courthouse wedding perfectly combined the intimacy of a small courthouse ceremony and a celebration with their wider circle of friends and family. They decided to be flexible in their planning, something I totally admire as we all navigate this time of uncertainty.      Valerie and Andrew are high school sweethearts. They’d lost […]
