Dickerson Wedding at The Springs in Weatherford, Texas

Emily and Rico is a one of a kind couple. Their love and passion for Christ was not sold short on their beautiful wedding day.  Everything they did was a reflection of Christ, including when they sang praise and worship during their ceremony. It was extremely cold, on their wedding day. They faced the cold and now have rewarding wedding portraits! Even with shaking hands and blue lips, their bridal party stayed with it to celebrate the two. Their wedding was at the beautiful venue, The Springs in Weatherford, Texas! I have shot as many of The Springs Venues, and this one was just perfect for their day.  The ceremony took place inside, due to the cold weather, but became a space where family and friends shared an intimate moment of celebration. It was a special time to share with them and I can’t wait to see how the rest of their love story continues.

7. The Springs

Darlington House Wedding

Michelle + Brian

The gorgeous wedding, at the Darlington House, was absolutely stunning!  Brian and Michelle were my wedding photography giveaway couple, for 2015, and I am so glad they were.  The wedding was on a sunny California day.  Located in San Diego, the Darlington House was the perfect venue for this lovely couple.  This fall garden wedding was saturated with lots of love, laughter, and joyful tears.  With shades of burgundy and gold, every corner was adorned with greenery.  Every detail had meaning and showed Brian and Michelle’s style.  Their wedding day was shared with many family and friends and with a love so deep.

White Rock Lake Engagement

Carolyn and Ken were dressed perfectly for their beautiful engagement session! Carolyn had on an Allison Paris gown.  Any dress with tulle, has me in love! Their White Rock Lake engagement moved to a more cozy and fall theme. Gabriel and I had nothing but fun getting to spend time with these two.  We took them out to one of our favorite places.  White Rock Lake never disappoints! The day was windy but perfect for their fall engagement.  Ken being a native to Michigan and Carolyn a native from North Carolina, these two made the travel to the great state of Texas!  Best wishes to these two, as they continue their journey, towards marriage.White Rock Lake EngagementWhite Rock Lake EngagementWhite Rock Lake EngagementWhite Rock Lake EngagementWhite Rock Lake Engagement
