Allison’s wedding was hands down one of the the most beautiful affairs I’ve ever seen.. The first time I met Allison I knew our design styles were a perfect match (she, her bridesmaid, and I all showed up to the consultation in matching ivory and khaki dresses), and she had an amazing team working on her wedding decor, so I was anxiously awaiting her wedding and it definitely did not disappoint! I’m still working on the wedding photos, but in the meantime, here are some of my favorites from her session at the Dallas Arboretum!
Courtney Paul just became Courtney Cleveland, so I’m pumped to show off these beautiful bridals of hers!!
Sommer is my complete kindred spirit, aesthetically speaking. Her style is so romantic, feminine, classic, with just a touch of vintage. Her wedding, which I just shot this past weekend at Butler’s Courtyard near Houston, had some of the most beautiful florals and general decor I’ve ever seen. I wanted to steal all of her centerpieces and bouquets and take them home! Sommer herself is such a classic beauty, it’s pretty much impossible to take a bad photo of her, so this bridal session was easy as pie. Here are a few of my favorites:
I love the title of this post, because I feel like it fits Abby perfectly. If I had to describe Abby’s style in two words, it would be “rustic couture.” On the surface, Abby is a typical Texas country girl. She owns a horse, she wears her cowboy boots regularly, she attended a university known for its agricultural history, she competed on an equestrian team, and I’m fairly sure she would feel right at home on a four-wheeler bumping down an old gravel road. That said, she’s also one of the most stylish brides I’ve ever had. She’s got a great sense of fashion and style, and put together a truly smoking hot look for her wedding day. She’s a great catch – a down home country girl who also knows how to work it in a pair of Louboutins! She also happens to be a real trooper when it comes to photos. Her bridal session was FREEEEEZING (and her Day After session in snowy Paris was even colder) but she never complained once. Here are a few of my faves:
In true Deziree fashion, we shot her bridal session at two fabulous locations. We started off at Iron Bed at the Shops at Legacy, which is quite possibly the most beautiful home decorating store of all time. They specialize in iron bedframes, but they also offer high end bedding, home decor, and bath accessories. Jason knows that he can never take me near The Iron Bed because I MUST go in, I MUST lay on one of the amazing beds, I MUST try out some of their perfumes, body sprays, and lotions, and I MUST buy a ridiculously cute throw pillow. I simply must. The second location was the NYLO hotel, which I have been dying to shoot at for months now. The NYLO has the most unique decor of any hotel I have ever been to, with a really trendy, modern, loft-y vibe. I could have shot Deziree at these locations for days! Here are a few highlights:
Now that Autumn is married, I can finally show off her bridals! I adore Autumn, especially when she’s in front of my camera. Her bone structure paired with those amazing blue-green eyes, not to mention how PERFECT her dress is, made my job incredibly easy. Here are a few of my favorites from her session at the Arboretum:
Autumn was generous enough to model a few of my new bridal headpieces for me. I collect all things bridal related – veils, headpieces, sashes, brooches, and anything else that can be used to adorn a bride. I’m not quite sure why I do this, but every time I see an amazing bridal accoutrement, I have to buy it! If you’re one of my brides and you’d like to use either of these pieces (or any from this session) in your bridal session, let me know!
I have had the pleasure of knowing Lisa for many years now, but somehow I don’t think I had ever had the chance to see her all dolled up.. That is, until her bridal session. Since Lisa and I were involved in a camp organization together as counselors, we were used to seeing each other in typical college and nature wear – shorts, jeans, t-shirts, flip flips, etc. When she walked up in her dress (which perfectly shows off her envy-inspiring silhouette) and her three – yes, THREE – veils, I was floored. What a stunner! I can only imagine what was going through Grant’s mind when he saw her for the first time, but I can imagine that he was thinking about what a lucky man he was to have such a stunning bride. Here are some of my favorite images from her session at the Dallas Arboretum:
