Maggie & Matt’s wedding previews – March 31, 2018

Maggie and Matt’s Story

Matt and Maggie met in 2013. They had their first date at Giuseppe’s in Denton and talked until the restaurant closed. They didn’t talk for awhile after that, but eventually they found each other again and the rest is history! They ended up spending a lot of time with each other and enjoy hiking, reading and relaxing together. In the summer of 2015, they adopted a weenie dog named Sawyer to serve as a little brother to Maggie’s pup, Hector. They moved in together in the fall of 2015 and decided to buy a house in 2017. Now they’re beginning their happily-ever-after.
The Proposal

On a family vacation to New Jersey with Maggie’s extended family, Matt decided to pop the question under the fireworks on the 4th of July. The beach, family time, and now a fiance, it was a vacation to remember!

Katy & Dennis – March 29, 2018 at The Springs Rockwall

Katy and Dennis were married at The Springs Event Venue in Rockwall, TX.

Dennis and Katy grew up in the small towns of Princeton and Farmersville and went to rival high schools. Dennis was very active in sports and dance and Katy was involved in cheerleading and dance. They had never met until a mutual friend suggested that they had similar interests. Once their paths crossed  junior year of high school, the rest was history! They moved to Los Angeles after graduation and have been pursuing the fitness and entertainment industry ever since. Their dance background plays a huge role in how they met and they continue to share that passion with each other. They also enjoy travel and adventure, and they have exciting things planned for their future together. March 29th, 2018 will be their 5th anniversary.

Dennis proposed to Katy on Christmas Eve in 2016, he surprised her along with friends and family on her way home from the airport for the holidays. A link to the proposal video is attached below.

Katy’s bridals at the Dallas Arboretum

I can finally show off Katy’s gorgeous bridals we did at the Dallas Arboretum a couple of months ago. She was stunning in her gown from Leann’s Bridal and her mother’s original veil. The beautiful bouquet from Petals & Pearls Unique Designs complimented everything so nicely.

Katy & Dennis were married last night at The Springs Venue in Terrell, TX

Emily & Miles tied the knot on March 11, 2018!

Emily & Miles are the sweetest couple but they also have a very comic side.

The ceremony was held at the gorgeous Cross of Christ Lutheran Church with reception at The Manderely both located in DeSoto, TX. I was in love with the colors she chose for her bridesmaids dresses and the way the beautiful bouquets tied in so nicely. I spotted some purple trees at the venue and was able to come up with some photo ideas that turned out just beautiful.

It was such a great day and evening, everything was wonderful down to the catering, decor and even the adorable little cupcakes. Take a look at the previews below ~

Mykie & Samantha’s very unique LGBT wedding at the The Quixotic World

I have shot many sessions in Deep Ellum over the years from senior portraits to couples, Modeling, etc, and I always stop at this building because I love the red and black on the outside for my sessions. I have always wondered what they have done to the inside since the name change, back in the 90’s I would see bands play there.

I was so excited when I booked this LGBT wedding and on NYE!! (During the afternoon though), however, when my 2nd shooter and I arrived it was SNOWING!!!! We walked in from such a bright and freezing situation outside to a dark and almost Willie Wonka like scene inside, it was awesome! I was in photography heaven, some photographers may have walked in and been in panic mode because if you do not know how to shoot in low light and I mean almost dark, well then you are in trouble. I have years of experience so I was not worried, I was very excited!

Here are some of my favorites from the ceremony and reception, I absolutely love how this venue looks now and the creative touch the brides added. This venue holds all types of events, you really need to check them out. https://www.thequixoticworld.com/dallasweddingvenue/

Drake & Kelsey’s wedding previews – October 29, 2017

From the bride:

Drake and I knew each other in high school and ran in similar circles for a little while, but never dated. As college wore on, we both dated different people, but that didn’t work out for either of us.

The summer leading into our junior year of college, I was spending time with my friend Victoria (she spoke at the wedding), who happened to be good friends with Drake at the time.

Anyways, Drake hadn’t seen her for a while and knew she was about to leave for school, so he invited both of us to hang out with him and a group of friends. As soon as we showed up, Drake will tell you “that was that.” We hung out all summer and even a couple months into the school year before he asked me to be his girlfriend (he had just gotten out of a serious relationship and didn’t want to risk moving too quickly).

Our engagement story isn’t the most traditional, but basically we both decided we were ready and went to pick out a ring together. We drove home unengaged, walked in the door to Drake’s apartment, where he proposed to me. It was very intimate, one of my fondest memories.

After 15 months of planning, the wedding day came together perfectly. I can’t imagine it having gone better, and I have several friends, family members, and people like yourself to thank for it — would not have been possible without y’all.
