Terez and Matt: Ashton Gardens, Denton, TX

Terez and Matt

I was lucky enough to take Matt and Terez’s engagements months ago at TWU and an airport, yes an airport. It was awesome and totally fit their style. After working with them on that day, I was excited to photograph their wedding day. There was a chance of rain, but thankfully God blessed us with a great day with no rain and a cool breeze. Ashton Gardens is  such a wonderful venue and very easy to take great pictures at because of all the natural light the streams in from their large windows in the chapel and reception areas. Both families were incredible to work with. Matt teared up whenever Terez came down the isle, and that is a very good sign of a love filled marriage. The food was wonderful and the dancing was sweet. I hope the best of the both of you and congrats!

Mike and Heather Sneak Peek: Hidden Pines Chapel (Highland Village, TX)

Mike and Heather

I had the honor of meeting Heather and Ali (Maid of Honor) about a year ago at Panera. We had a good time talking about the upcoming wedding and I was excited to find out she wanted me to photograph the wedding. Not only is she nice, Heather is also very selfless. We scheduled to do a bridal shoot the same day (my fault) as the Denton Bridal Show and she was kind enough to schedule it early so that we could do the shoot and I could manage my booth. It was wonderful to meet and talk with Mike and his groomsmen Friday before everything became fast-paced and wild, as it usually does on a wedding day. Beautiful ceremony and happy friends. Hidden Pines Chapel is a very beautiful venue with wonderful staff and easy to shoot a wedding in. I was excited that everyone had a lot of fun and that the celebration was extravagant. Congrats Heather and Mike! Enjoy the sneak peak of your wedding pictures.

Cody and Delia Engagements: Arbor Hills Nature Preserve

Cody and Delia

The weather was just spectacular yesterday when we were taking engagements at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano, TX (I highly recommend checking this place out). Cody and Delia were so easy to work with because they really fit great together and were natural in front of the camera. I’m also very thankful that they were flexible, and because of this, we were able to try out so cool spots that were a little difficult to hike to. Thank you so much for being amazing Cody and Delia!

Mick Burson

Mick Burson

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.IMG_0212IMG_0191IMG_0195IMG_0209IMG_0229IMG_0239IMG_0332IMG_0359IMG_0292

Chris and Susan Sneak Peek Wedding Photos: Lakeside, TX

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.

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.

Processed with VSCOcam with c7 preset

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
