Children Photography Ideas with Carrie, Grace and Ashley
Stacia and I met up with Carrie and the girls for a quick family shoot this evening. They were passing through Dallas on their way up to Tulsa, and Carrie needed a few shots to put on a purse. Yes, that’s right, I said purse. I didn’t even know you could do such a thing, but...
Wales Manor Vineyard Wedding with Angela & Jon
Angela and Jon asked us to shoot their wedding at the Wales Manor Vineyard up in McKinney, TX. We had a wonderful time. I love the shots with the horses, who were all to eager to pose for us. They literally ran over to the fence to get in the frame. It was pretty funny!
Congratulations guys, enjoy...
Visiting an Old Friend
I just returned from the UK where I was able to take a break from the Arsenal Futbol Religious Experience (more on that in a future post) and visit an old friend in Wales. My friend Mark died on the 16th of April in 2003, at 29. Mark and I share the same birthday, May 25th, so it was fitting that I was able to be over there for it. I was able to stop by and refresh his cache of American flags that Kristel, his wife (or I guess widow, which is still hard for me to say) sent over with me. I took these shots of where he now rests, which is just across the street from the house he grew up in. Here is his beautiful view of the Welsh...
Whitney and Michael's Wedding in the Rain
A little rain couldn’t lessen this wonderful day. Whitney and Michael tied the knot at the Surrey House, and invited us to be their photographers. We had a wonderful time doing it, and it was a lovely wedding, rain and all. Congrats guys, and thanks again for having...
Dancing Ashley and Nathan Wed
We shot Ashley and Nathan’s nuptials at Chestnut Square this weekend. It was a perfect day, all the way around. The sky kept threatening to open up on us, but it thankfully never did, and everything went according to plan. Nathan even laughed (a little) at Stacia’s Brother’s joke, “Everything went off without a hitch, except the one!”. Thanks again guys for having us, we really enjoyed it...
DART Train Dallas Engagement Pictures with Rachel and Rob
One of my best friends and teammate Rob is getting hitched in San Antonio this October. I am not shooting their wedding because I will be in it. Their leaving that honor to Chris over at CMI Photography. I am not too sure how I feel about being on that side of the lens, but I am sure it will be fine. I hope Chris has some resilient equipment, my ugly mug might just break his stuff! Check out his work, he’s GOOOD!
Stacia and I were able to talk them into the Dallas version of their engagement shoot, since they do live here and all. Rob initially wanted to go to the park, but we nixed his idea and went for the West End instead. The shots turned out great. They really like the long exposure dart shot…
Southlake Town Square Jessica's Senior Picture Ideas
Here we are introducing Arlington’s Martin High School Senior Jessica. We met up with her and both mom and dad at the Southlake Town Square. Her bubbly personality, willingness to try new things and her sassy attitude made this shoot unforgettable. She was so fun to photograph. We put both mom and dad to work on this shoot. It was a bit breezy, blocking wind was their goal, so that we could focus on getting images with tamed hair. Jessica will be heading off to Sam Houston College to major in Criminal Justice. Best of luck...
Heather and Robert's Wedding Day
On the afternoon of March 28, 2009, we arrived at the Oakmont Country Club in Corinth, Texas to photograph the celebration of marriage between Heather and Robert. We captured the bride and her maids while hair and make-up was being done, along with the groom and his men hanging out, telling jokes and doing what guys do. While the guys were goofing off, the ladies we making sure that Heather looked her best, with a few...

Heather’s Bridal Shoot
We met up with Heather on the TWU campus today to shoot her bridals. It was a perfect morning, well maybe just a bit windy but otherwise a very nice day to be outside shooting. Heather you look amazing! We can't wait to photograph...
Mara and Kyle Get Married!
This is sure to be a wedding we will never forget. One thing a photographer must have in order to capture great images is…..LIGHT! The afternoon of this wedding, we arrived a little earlier than normal, and it’s a good thing we did. The country club had lost power, along with the surrounding neighborhoods. Thankfully, all of the posed pictures were being taken prior to the ceremony. The deck just off of the location of the ceremony turned out to be a great place to photograph the wedding party, friends and family. The late afternoon light was perfect for capturing moments that will last a lifetime for this bride and groom.
As we were taking posed pictures, we were beginning to panic about the lighting for the ceremony, but we were not alone. There was a band that needed power for keyboards and lights for the dance floor. A fully staffed kitchen that had food that was to be prepared, not to mention, how would anyone see the ceremony, as it would be dark? The country club staff had sent out employees to purchase massive amounts of candles and holders of sorts to create light inside where the ceremony was to take place. We strategized about where we could set up remote lights to ensure we captured at least some images...
Mara and Kyle's Goofy Engagement Session
Kyle is a good friend of mine and coincidently, is one of many reasons that I am a professional photographer; you can read more on that at “about us”. Stacia and I met up with Kyle and Mara at the Prestonwood Country Club, The Hills, in Plano, Texas for their engagement shoot. It seemed to be an appropriate location, as the wedding is to be held here just over a month.
This cute and fun loving couple, frolicked through the golf greens, up and down the hills, and down by the water. While they were playful, we captured moments of laughter and love. As the sun set, we caught some true “Kyle & Mara” moments, them, being themselves...
