Brandon and Megan Engagements Sneak Peek (Denton, TX)

Brandon & Megan Engagements

 

I met Megan a couple of weeks ago at West Oak Coffee Bar (an incredible coffee bar) and we prepared for the engagements at Old Alton Bridge. It went back and forth on wether yesterday was going to be raining or clear, but it ended up being cloudy and moody (great for cool photos). We had a lot of fun taking the engagement pictures at Old Alton Bridge yesterday, and the dogs did great too. Enjoy the pics!

Loving the Ricoh

Before Christmas, I bought a used Ricoh GR1s (I was feeling the itch to do some film work again). I love it and really enjoy using a point and shoot that has a fixed focal length of 28mm; which forces me to really think about where I’m going to stand and shoot from to get the image I’m wanting. It’s just so fun having such a small camera that actually fits in my pocket. Here are some pics from around the house. Enjoy.

Jeff and Kathryn’s Sneak Peek Wedding Photographs: Fate, TX

It was wonderful getting the chance to photograph Jeff and Kathryn. I’ve known Jeff for over ten years because he is my parents’ best friend’s son (I had to reread this a couple of times to make sure I typed that correctly). I haven’t met Kathryn before, but when I did I immediately saw how awesome and kind she is. They love each other deeply and both had a lot of fun together, which something I can’t create in editing, it’s just there. This celebration was a lot of fun and the Amenity Center was turned into something very beautiful and romantic and I was blown away at just how creative the families were in decorating. Great job!

Here is a sneak peek of the wedding that was last night. Enjoy and please feel free to comment or contact me. Have a great Sunday!

We love y’all LeGrands

Lauren and Don Engagements

Hey met three years ago at a party and crossed paths through friends. They talked a week later and have been having fun together since then. It was wonderful working with both of them today because of how nice they were and just how easy it was for them to make each other laugh. It was a great day! Also, the weather was INCREDIBLE; a huge blessing. Enjoy and always feel free to leave comments. Have a great evening.

I’ve known Keli and Derek since college, and it’s been so cool to see them get married and grow as a family.

Jonathan and Sandra Sneak Peek- TWU Little Chapel in the Woods -Denton, TX

 

Jonathan and Sandra’s Sneak Peek

Jonathan and Sandra had a wonderful wedding today at TWU’s Little Chapel in the Woods. Sandra was so incredibly welcoming the first moment I met her and her family. As they were getting ready, I swept in to get some shots of the guys getting ready and they, too, were friendly and congenial. It was a beautiful wedding in the Chapel and there were tons of smiles during the ceremony. They both handled the cold (Texas cold) weather like pros for some fun photos outside after the ceremony. I honestly don’t think I met an unfriendly guest at the reception and they finished the night off with a bubble exit. Fun times at the Hilton Garden Inn. Thank you both for letting me be a part of your wedding day and I hope the very best for your futures. Enjoy the honeymoon in Las Vegas!!!

15 in 2015

This has been a BIG year.

First off, I am so thankful with what God has done this year with this business. I asked a BIG prayer in the Spring, which was “I want 15 weddings, please”. I got 15, but one dropped out in December because of plans changing. So I think that is an answered prayer, but it has been such a blessing with the 14. Also, I’m so thankful to have such a wonderful wife who always supports me in all this. She’s simply amazing!

Secondly, thank you to everyone that let me be a part of your celebration. It is such an honor to be chosen to take pictures of each of your weddings/families/anything. There are a lot of photographers out there, and I am so thankful that each of y’all for choosing me to capture your sweet moments. Thank you so much.

Here are some pics of this year’s fun times. Hope you enjoy and that your year is really blessed and wonderful.

P.S. I’m praying for 30 weddings this year, so get ready!!!

Matt and Terez Engagements: McKinney, TX

First of all, it was a beautiful day today and I am so thankful to have met Mattand Terez a couple of months ago at West Oak Coffee here in Denton. They are both very laid back and were open for some cool shots when we talked about taking their pictures at an airport (Ethan has a pilot’s license). It was a fun day today, and we ended up finishing at TWU. Thank you both for this opportunity. Enjoy.

Secondly, I GOT TO TAKE ENGAGEMENTS AT AN AIRPORT!
