Following our time in the downtown Dallas area, Kaylyn and Marcus changed into their formals for a magical Dallas Arboretum engagement session to finish off their beautiful gallery. We had a gorgeous day at the gardens...everything was just right including a little girl visiting the gardens who gasped, "Mommy! She's a princess!" when she saw Kaylyn! I love to have a time of playfulness in my engagement sessions and with Kaylyn and Marcus we played a bit of Scrabble where they had to come up with one word to describe the other. Scroll down to see what they chose...you won't be disappointed!
Kaylyn and Marcus met at college their freshman year and have dated all throughout their college years. They will be married early summer in a formal ceremony with guests flying in from all over the globe. Marcus came to the states for his college experience and he and Kaylyn have had many adventures traveling over the pond to his home. Their love for each other can be easily seen after spending only a few moments with them. I so enjoyed capturing their connection and relationship in their engagement photos! This post highlights the first location for their session...Downtown Dallas at the Winspear Opera House.

The Big Fake Wedding visited Dallas, TX this October at the picturesque venue, The Laurel. I was honored to be a featured vendor for the event and enjoyed every moment capturing this vow renewal ceremony complete with the dress, the details, the "I Do's" and the party! Vendors from the DFW area joined forces to put on this fabulous ceremony and Ashley + Carrington stole the show with their beautiful LOVE story! Take a look below for some highlights from this special day.
Melanie is a picture of perfection. Her bridals took place on a beautiful late summer day at the picturesque Chandler's Gardens. You would almost think you were in Italy when you begin exploring this stunning property complete with rolling hillsides, rose gardens, arbors, majestic oaks, picturesque lake and green as far as the eye can see. Melanie's wedding dress was a delicate fit and flare that was perfection! The delicate lace cap sleeves, the sheer lace back detail was topped off with the flowing lace train. See the highlights of Melanie's Garden Bridals below!
