I met Mick over a year ago at Borman Elementary when he was kind enough to come and speak to my Art students and shared what it means to be an artist. He is a man of patience and excellence at what he does, Murals. You might have seen some of his amazing murals around Denton, like the murals on the Scrap, Creative Art Studio, and Denton Camera Exchange. This morning, I was honored to photograph him working on some last details of a mural on the Greater Denton Arts Council building off Bell. The weather was completely different than the day before, so thankfully I had some warm coffee (West Oak Coffee Bar) because it was cold and I wasn’t prepared (Mick offered his spare jacket several times). Enjoy.
Chris and Susan
It was a very rainy and windy week leading up to their wedding, but by God’s grace, the rain was gone and the weather was absolutely phenomenal. I pulled up to the barn and there were literally birds chirping in the morning rays. The family was getting all the centerpieces ready for the upcoming celebration in the cool morning with smiles on all their faces. Really friendly people. Susan and Chris were both getting ready, with Chris helping the family out. I was able to chat with Chris, as well as the rest of the family and friends on both sides, and the whole setup was just wonderful and warm hearted. Susan and her daughter were getting ready upstairs in a really cool light blue room upstair in the barn and the whole place just had a lot of cool character that was fun to play around with while taking pictures. The whole day was great and the low key wedding really fit the venue well and the cool, breezy day perfectly. They were both easy to pose and make smile because they loved each other a lot and their daughter, Lily, seemed as if it was just another day of hanging out with her parents, eating awesome cake.
Thank you both for letting me photography your wedding day and enjoy the pics, Chris and Susan.Fun times.
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!
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.
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. They are incredible people that love Jesus and show that love every time I come in contact with them. I was honored that they let me take their maternity photos. The weather honestly could not have been better. Beautiful family, wonderful. day. Enjoy the pics.
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!!!
