It seems lately that whenever we plan a portrait session around sunset, we end up with a boring dull sky with no color and no clouds. Well, last weekend the odds were in our favor – we had an amazing sunset at the Dallas Arboretum for Anika & Frank’s sunset wedding!
Congratulations to Meredith & Joe’s who were married in a beautiful sunset ceremony on Saturday!
We’ve had a fabulous week of working vacation and we topped it off with photographing the beautiful wedding or Sydney & Kurt at Alhambra Hall in Mount Pleasant SC (Charleston area). Hope you enjoy this sneak peek!
A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate to take a week long workshop at the Texas School of Photography and as usual, it was fun-filled and hectic week! One of my favorite activities was the morning we spent at the McKinney Cotton Mill with 3 professional ballet dancers. Here are some of my favorite images – hope you enjoy!
Last fall we got to travel to one of our favorite places to shoot weddings – New Orleans! Bill and Angelica live in the Dallas area but share a deep love for New Orleans, so when they started planning their dream wedding it only made sense that they plan a destination wedding in their dream location – St Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square! They worked hard to make sure all of the guests received a true feel for the city – from traditional Second Line walk through the French Quarter to the King’s cake at the reception, they did it all.
You may have already seen Angelica and her sisters on our blog a couple of months ago and you can read a lot more about Bill & Angelica’s wedding in the current Star-Telegram Bridal Section (we’re anxiously awaiting the online version to go live!(

I don’t remember what song was playing, but I’d be willing to bet that it was either Journey’s or Bon Jovi – they get the best air guitar and lip syncing at most weddings.
