Deep Ellum Dallas Texas Laura and Amy’s Engagement Photography Session

This particular Engagement Session is a special one. Amy and Laura are renewing their vows in November and wanted to do everything from Engagement Photography session to rehearsal dinner photography and of course wedding day photography. This photo session included their adorable dog and also served as a save the date photography session as well. Their story is so super sweet and embodies “Soul Mate” material. I asked for their story in their words and this is what Laura and Amy shared – (Must read – to awesome not to!)

It’s hard to contain all of our greatness in a short paragraph :)))))))) let me know what you think. I can condense if you need me to:

Amy and I met (for the first time), about 4 years ago at the resort I worked at in San Antonio. She was a frequent guest of ours, coming and staying for months at a time. I had always known her, as did everyone at the hotel. She was easy to talk to, down to earth, and a breath of fresh air compared to other guests. There was always something about her, I felt. She had this energy that drew you in like the strongest magnet possible and I was a little paper clip, always coming towards her a little at a time. What I didn’t know is that 4 years later I would be higher up in management, and I just happened to be in charge of guests like her, VIP’s we called them. As time went on Amy and I began a working relationship. She would need a room at the last minute, and I would make sure we had it open for her. Amy was dedicated to her job, and just knew me as Laura from the hotel, until that faithful night; I was to take her on a business dinner.

As the stars aligned and God had his way, Amy and I had dinner every night after that. I never imagined I would have a soul mate, let alone find mine to be so amazingly wonderful. We dated for a month…well…45 days as Amy likes to say before we decided to get married in San Francisco on November 22, 2013.

The day we got married was very intimate, it was just her and I and a limo driver that we hired for the day. I wore white, she wore navy and I carried flowers that she picked up from a downtown street flower vendor. It was just about us that day, two soul mates making an everlasting commitment to each other.

This year, on our one year anniversary we will be having the wedding of our dreams. All of our family and all of our friends are so excited to be a part of something so meaningful to us. The ceremony will be held at The Little Chapel In The Woods at the TWU campus (where Amy’s mother and aunt got married), and the reception will be at Ashton Gardens.

Every night, after the day has passed Amy leans over to me and says, “I would marry you again today, would you say yes?” And I respond “In a heartbeat.”

To prepare for this photo session, they both had a great makeup and hair stylist for this photo shoot -

Dallas Texas Artistic Engagement Photography Session for Lauren and Brian and their Dogs

Lauren and Brian are engaged to be married. We got together with their two amazing dogs to share in their very special artistic engagement photography session. We wandered through the streets of the Bishop Arts District in Dallas Texas to use the artistic surroundings of the neighborhood. This area is one of Dallas’s iconic areas and that is what Lauren and Brian were looking for as a backdrop for their photos. Take a look at how adorable these pictures came out.

Engagement Photography Session McKinney Texas Airport and Bella Donna Chapel

Raven and Jerome are engaged to be married. This adorable couple has traveled to many beautiful locations and were engaged in Paris. So it made sense to arrange their engagement photography session at an airport. We had the privilege of using a very cool retro 1948 Cessna airplane as backdrop for the occasion at the McKinney Texas airport. We then went over to the beautiful Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney to complete the photos in a different setting! The Bella Donna Chapel is set in a wonderful location that gives the feeling as though you are in Italy. I love it and am so happy to shoot at this exquisite spot. Here are some great shots from our session. I am looking forward to Raven and Jerome’s upcoming wedding day!

Relay For Life Race and Survivor Dinner – Rockwall Texas 2014

This year I focused on joining the committee for Relay for Life Race held at the Cain Middle School in Rockwall Texas and the Survivor dinner that was held at the Mesquite Convention Center in Mesquite Texas. In the fight against cancer, silence is the last thing we need. Your local American Cancer Society Relay For Life event is a great place to take action and make noise. The Relay For Life movement features community and campus events that offer an inspiring opportunity to honor cancer survivors, promote how individuals can reduce their cancer risk, and raise money to help end cancer. Today, with the support of thousands of volunteers, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day. And we won’t stop until we finish the fight against cancer! Many donators supported this cause and were incredibly giving in their time, energy, money, love and kindness. My heart was full from being able to get to know some of my fellow survivors and families, team participants and generous supporters of this disease. My wish is that one day we are not able to do a function like this and have found a treatment that will help everyone that we love to heal and not leave our sides. I myself am a cancer survivor and I also have people that are very very close to my heart that have fought this awful epidemic. I am so grateful to everyone that teamed up with us to aid in this cure. Keep strong and fight long! Please find a list after the images of the vendors that gave their time and products for support of our survivors to give them a fabulous night of “Celebrating them”!
