We love Friday weddings so we were super excited to spend last night at the Ashton Depot photographing Leslie & Jimmy’s special day.  The weather was perfect, the sun was shining when we needed it, and every last details was absolutely beautiful. The star of the show, however, was Leslie & Jimmy’s shining love for each other – they are so perfect for each other that I just can’t come up with the words to accurately describe it.  Jimmy probably said it best – immediately after the ceremony, he told Leslie “Babe, I’m a complete mess without you”.  Thank you for letting us share such a special moment with you, we know you will have an amazing life together!

Samantha & Austin were married last night in a beautiful sunset ceremony at the Dallas Arboretum.  Everything was perfect – from the weather to the flowers to the vintage Bentley that whisked them away at the end of the night.  We know that Samantha and Austin will have a life filled with love and laughter and we wish them all the best.  Thank you for making us part of your amazing day!

And a wedding sneak peek would not be complete without a photobooth photo!

We had a great time at last weekend’s bridal show and we want to thank everyone who stopped by to see us!  It is always so much fun to talk to so many excited brides and grooms (and moms and dads).  It felt like we talked to hundreds of people but I’m sure we missed a few people who came by while we were busy, so please feel free to give us a call or drop us an email if you didn’t have a chance to talk to us.

We would also like to congratulate the winner of our door prize – Jodi who’s wedding is yet to be determined, has won a free engagement, bridal or boudoir session!

When we first met Lindsey she told us that a big, formal wedding was not their style at all – she and Evan wanted a casual, western feel to their day and most of all, they wanted everyone to just sit back, relax and enjoy being together. They decided the perfect place for them to do this was at the Stockyard Hotel and I don’t think they could have found a more perfect setting!  As their ceremony approach the sky clouded over just enough so nobody was melting during their outdoor ceremony, and we even had time to sneak Lindsey and Evan to one of our favorite spots in Fort Worth for photos before dinner.

Allyson and Chris got married back in 2011 (on 11-11-11, actually) and they got a quick sneak peek on the blog but their wedding hasn’t quite made it on the blog yet.  Yes, I am THAT far behind on blogging.  Well, they just recently added a very sweet baby boy to their family so I figured the least I could do was put some of their photobooth fun on the blog so when baby Brady gets older, mommy and daddy can show him how silly them and their family and friends were on the day they got married.  Congratulations – we couldn’t be happier for you!

Jessica & Dallas got married a couple months ago already, and since Jessica was a bridesmaid at last night’s wedding (more about Randi & Ryan’s fabulous vintage wedding at a later date), we figured we really needed to share their engagement session.

When Jessica & Dallas are together they can’t help smiling ridiculously big, and that type of happiness is contagious so we found ourselves smiling and laughing the entire time we were with them.  Try as we might, we could not catch either of them NOT smiling. My cheeks actually hurt a little by the end of their session, but it was worth it because we got some amazing images!  Hope you enjoy.
