White Sparrow Barn Bridal Photography: The Story

While brainstorming ideas and locations with this beautiful client of mine we came up with the genius idea to do a boudoir and bridal combo shoot at White Sparrow. The idea of a combo photoshoot was so perfect I kept thinking why haven’t I thought of this before? The scene was set for this bride-to-be to transition seamlessly from her gorgeous lingerie and vintage veil into her wedding dress. A wonderful ah-ha moment. And best of all this concept falls right in line with my story telling approach. Just think of the unique album this will make!

So now I am calling all brave brides-to-be because I am really looking forward to more boudoir and bridal sessions like this!

Belmont Hotel Dallas Engagement Photography Session

I have wanted to do an engagement session, photoshoot or wedding at The Belmont for ages and I finally decided to take matters into my own hands by styling this shoot with the best looking couple in Dallas! By the way, if you are ever in Dallas you must stay at The Belmont. It is like walking into a mid-century modern time capsule. I just love it! If you have a minute check out their website to read about their history, too.

The Belmont Hotel had a lot to do with the inspiration of this shoot. I guess you could say the Belmont is the third subject in the photos. Ashley and TJ loved the concept of using the hotel and we went with styling that had just a hint of retro. It was important for their clothing to compliment the environment yet still have a modern, timeless look. Ashley did a great job with her own hair and makeup and looked gorg in the sheer lavender dress from Gossamer. The two-toned silk wrap dress was from my personal collection and TJ pulled off the ‘Mad Men’ look we were going for effortlessly. What a tall drink of water he is. AMIRIGHT? ; ) We had the best time exploring all that The Belmont had to offer and I can’t wait to shoot here again!

Rockwall Castle Wedding Photography Texas Featuring Fine Art Styling

I am lucky to be part of Haystack , a fun community of film photographers in Dallas, who occasionally get together and have styled “shoot outs”. It’s a way we can all meet fellow film nerds, work with talented wedding vendors and shoot something pretty. The only rule is, no digital! You must shoot all film.

This shootout took place at The Rockwall Castle venue, and was styled by Dallas wedding planner Meggie Francisco. From Meggie: “A palette of emerald, sage, and pale mint combined with warm grays and mixed metals to evoke a regal yet relaxed feeling. The design was built for a refined, artsy bride who wants to wrap her guests in true modern comfort..”

My favorite part was the different shades of green. Hmm..or maybe the mucho flower girls! Not to mention that bouquet by Jackson Durham. Holy moly. Is it just me or are bouquets bigger these days!? Quit possibly the largest bouquet I’ve seen, yet simple in design using only white flowers and greenery. So gorgeous! All around it was a unique concept including the model’s very daring, futuristic makeup by Wendy Zerrudo. So fun!
