I barely even had time to look forward to Christina and Jeff’s Old Red Courthouse wedding. Within three months of Christina’s initial e-mail to me we had met up at a coffee shop, taken engagement pictures and were now meeting back up together the morning of their wedding for the big event!

These pictures of Christina getting ready all-smiles are a true reflection of her sweet, cheery disposition.

The getting ready process finished up just in time to squeeze in a few pictures of Christina with her bridesmaids and Jeff with his groomsmen before the ceremony began.

I love these emotion-filled images James captured of Christina and her dad right before the doors opened to the ceremony.

Sweet, sweet just married smiles.

After wiping away some happy tears, we took some time for some bride-groom portraits before heading into the reception.

Because Christina and Jeff’s venue was just crawling with photographic opportunities, they opted to take a few minutes to sneak out of the reception for a few more bride-groom portraits around the Old Red Courthouse.

 Christina and Jeff, it was nothing but a pleasure to work with y’all.

James and I don’t have a single doubt in our minds that y’all are



for each other.

Hello, blog. It’s been a while since I did a full photo post but I’m SO excited to be back and I’m picking up right where I left off! I’m glad to be back with such a lovely, lovely wedding for a lovely, lovely couple.

I first met Jessica and Matt my freshman year of college. They were both older than me and had started dating the summer before I got there. Did I know this information because Jessica and/or Matt had personally confided this in me? Nope. I knew it because everyone was talking about what an ADORABLE couple they were together.

This was my first impression of the two of them.

And that is my current impression of them as a couple to this very day. They’re perfect for each other.

We started off the day at First Baptist Lewisville with some detail shots of the lovely birdcage flower arrangements and some final prep shots of the bride and groom.

Matt and Jessica opted to do a first look before their wedding ceremony and I have to say that Matt has had the best first look reaction I’ve ever had the privilege to witness.

After it was completed James ran over to me with his camera and said, “Look! He looks like a little kid in a candy store.”

And I’d say that is a perfectly accurate description.

(Jessica, you had a GREAT reaction too.)

Get it, guys.

Jessica, you are just radiant. Radiant.

After a sweet moment with her dad, Jessica and the girls headed outside to start the wedding party photos off right — lots and lots of laughing.

All of Jessica’s bridesmaids donned handmade necklaces that one of our super-talented metalsmith friends, Chelsey, created!

I can’t remember at exactly which point in the ceremony that I caught my eyes tearing up. I was overjoyed that these two — these two individuals that I couldn’t imagine ever fitting quite as nicely with anyone else, ever, than the person they were standing next to up on that stage — were becoming husband and wife.

After the ceremony it was off to the Bridlewood Golf Club for a reception filled with some of the sweetest centerpieces imaginable.

After cutting the cake, James and I snuck Jessica and Matt out of the reception for a few minutes to take a few more bride and groom portraits on the beautiful grounds of Bridlewood Golf Club. I love to make the most of every moment I have alone with the bride and groom on their wedding day because I luuuuuuuuuuuuurve taking bride-groom portraits.


Garter toss.


 And there you have it.

Jessica and Matt. Married. Perfectly.
