jenny + david | arlington wedding 

Jenny and David got married this past Saturday and it was spectacular.  The ceremony and reception were at the Mediterranean Villa in Arlington, TX.  It happens to be one of my favorite reception rooms!  There are nice tall ceilings, ample windows and big beautiful chandeliers. 

This couple was so loved by their many friends and family.  It was evidenced by the people present, but also from the thought and attention that was given to make this day so great.  Jenny has excellent taste (as you will soon see from the many amazing details!!), but more than that, she has a huge heart.  

I'm so happy for this couple, they seem to compliment each other so well.  One example to demonstrate this couple's sweetness was that the weather forecast called for thunderstorms throughout the entire afternoon. This means in the morning they had to make the call to do the ceremony either inside or outside.  Well, the decision was made and they chose to move it inside just to be safe.  But, by 2 o'clock in the afternoon, it was just about completely clear skies and sunny.  Jenny and David didn't let it phase them one bit.  They maintained their great, positive attitudes, and they were all smiles and no complaints.  Very admirable :D

A huge thank you to each family member for being so helpful and flexible throughout the entire day.  And Jenny and David, I hope you both find many photos you love. 

God bless!

ashlee + jared | engagements

I met Ashlee and Jared last Thursday for their sweet session!  We met in Ft. Worth and drove around to a variety of parks, eventually finding ourselves in an empty stadium (jackpot!).  We capped it off with listening to Jared play his guitar.  A great day's work :)

Ashley is a registered nurse and works with patients that have just received new organs, especially hearts. How amazing is that?  Just to be around people who have faced such odds would be something to watch every day.  Jared is a sales representative for a wholesale distributer that sells glass.  He gets to travel all over the place!  They met while attending community college in the summer, and then dated long term as they finished out their semesters at the University of North Texas and Texas Tech

Thank you both for asking me to take your photos, talk about a great day.  Perfect weather combined with such a great couple makes my job a little too easy!

jaci + josh | engagements

Jaci and Josh drove up to sunny Ft Worth for their engagements.  I was so thrilled because not only was the weather cooperating, but we were able to use some locations I spotted a while back.  Heck yessss!

Jaci is an editor (quite fun) and Josh works for a company that tutors kids.  Such the intelligent couple :D. They met while attending Abilene Christian University, but didn't start dating until after college.  I actually think their story is amazing.  At the time Jaci was living in Colorado Springs, Josh found an apartment in the area to basically win her over and to marry him.  How romantic is that?!?!

They are getting married this July in the great state of Oregon and I cannot wait to photograph it!  It sounds so beautiful and natural with a bright splash of color :).  And the cool part, it happens to fall on the Fourth of July!  Bring on the pinwheels :D.

Hope you find some you love!

Above:  This little park was adjacent to this little historical site of old cabins!  I thought, "JACKPOT".  We went to ask if we could use it... they said sure, for a $5 entrance fee of course.  Then they mentioned there is a giant school bus full of kids coming, and there is another $75 fee for taking photos.  Really???  I think they just made up that last one since the other two weren't going to deter us!

morgan + jeffrey | dallas engagements 

Morgan and Jeffrey have it all: Great senses of humor, loving demeanors, an ability and desire to work hard, an orientation to details, flexibility, and outward beauty.  Most importantly, they are crazy about God and each other.  In my humble opinion, it's a blue ribbon recipe for getting married :).  They graduated from Abilene Christian University and both moved to the Dallas area.  They started dating after they met at church.

Currently, they live in the North Dallas area.  Morgan studied finance and is working her way to becoming a middle school math teacher.  Talk about being a saint already ;).  Jeffrey works for a company called Halo, and serves as Vice President, Government Relations and Compliance.  For the layperson (me), this means he makes sure subsidiary branches are in compliance with government regulations.  So cool right?

They are getting married this summer and I can only imagine how beautiful the occasion will be.  I wish you two the best for your bright life together!

As I look through these images I'm reminded of what little work I had to do!  They were such naturals with each other, and just knew what looks good.  So, a huge thank you for making this easy for me :D.
