I just like Alia and Ronnie a whole big bunch — I really don’t know any other way to say it. I love that Alia and I were able to bond over our mutual appreciation of Taylor Swift and that she gave me recommendations for cute puppy instagram accounts to follow. I love that Ronnie has such an easy-going, while at the same time distinctly confident, way about him. I love that these two laugh easily around each other and never second-guessed any instruction I gave them during the shoot. Yep, I like these two a whole big bunch.
We started out nice and easy at their alma mater, SMU, which also happens to be the place they met. And then we kicked things up a notch at the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge and the resulting photos we got there make me wiggle my eyebrows in satisfaction.
Alia and Ronnie, these outfit choices are ON POINT.
We were having so much fun together that even the sun going down didn’t stop us. Alia and Ronnie, I am SO EXCITED to meet back up with y’all next month for wedding festivities, you have no idea.
All this rainy weather we’ve been having lately keeps reminding me I need to get Carson and Preston’s November wedding up on the blog (finally). So that’s what I’m doing today.
A few days before their wedding I get an e-mail from Carson that said, “It does look like it’s going to rain on Saturday. I’m actually not worried at all! Just so you know we have bubble umbrellas and rain boots for cute-ness and Preston and I are super flexible and excited either way.” ‘Atta girl, Carson. ‘Atta girl.
And rain it did that Saturday. But worry we did not. Some of the photos below were taken in the rain, some were taken between showers, plus a storm hit during the ceremony and even flooded part of the aisle. Still, every single person there was excited either way.
There is just something about shooting with natural light indoors that gets me all kinds of giddy about shooting portraits — particularly of individuals. This space fit Kari so well. She’s an absolute doll and as sweet as can be so if anyone needed bridals taken with floral wallpaper as a backdrop, it was this red-lipped beauty. Enjoy a few of my favorites from her session on this fine Monday evening!
When you’re a florist it should be no surprise for you to show up at your engagement session with not one but two floral crowns + your adorable bulldog complete with her own wreath to wear that you made yourself. Holly did just that (**insert photographer googly eyes here**) and I had so much fun with her, John and their lil pup Gertie Grace during their Fort Worth engagement session last fall. And SPEAKING OF FUN, I have been counting down the days to their Fort Worth Zoo wedding this Saturday. Y’all, a wedding at the ZOO! From everything I know about Holly, John, their wedding planner/designer and their vendor line-up I can say with assurance that it’s gonna be epic.
Holly and John, looking forward to meeting up with you two again real, real soon!
p.s. hair and make-up by the always amazing Beauty & the Blush. Rayven can seriously do no wrong in my book — hire her :))
