By far, the coolest thing about this job is the people I get to shoot. The Clients. All of their emotions. The strength and the vulnerability. And the love. God Bless the Love!
This session was so much fun. Angela and I went to high school together and became even better friends years later through social media. She worked hard to get in shape and was ready to strut her stuff.
Engagement Sessions usually overflow with love and affection, and this was no exception. Just look at these two souls. They can hardly wait to say “I do” to each other.
Her man, Damon, is awesome. It’s been such a pleasure getting to know him better with each new photoshoot.
He’s got his hands full, for sure, but this guy’s cool and confident. No worries here.
Move along. Nothing more to see here. XOXOXO
It’s so obvious with these two – they seem to have found each other at the perfect time.
I can’t say enough about Downtown Grapevine either. How fantastic is this place?
Shop windows, brick facades, wrought iron benches, beautiful planters and festive lights galore.
This is a couple with everything in front of them. The future is their’s to create.
Now we just have to figure out how to get them to stop kissing . . .
One of the coolest things about this job is that you never know where a shoot will take you and who each session is going to bring into your professional life.
Neisha and I chatted a bit about the photography for her Wedding Reception months ago, but circumstances where such that she knew other photographers and ultimately decided to hire someone else. I was a bit bummed, but that’s the business and I totally understood and appreciated her decision.
Imagine my surprise when, the night before it was to take place, I got a call asking if I would like to shoot their Wedding Reception. Events had conspired against them and for whatever reason, they were now without a photographer at the reception. Naturally, I jumped at the opportunity.
As you can see, the venue they had chosen was gorgeous. The Turner House is a beautiful old house in Oak Cliff that has been restored and is now used for all types of events.
As a photographer, I fell in love with the place the moment I laid eyes upon it. I could have spent the entire evening just taking pictures of the house. Some locations just benefit from truly authentic charm and character.
Working with Neisha and Marc was a dream as well. Just look at the love they share for each other. All I had to do was stand in the right place and push the right button.
Their family and friends were a treat to photograph as well. It was all I could do to keep up with the fun and excitement that was bouncing off the walls in that place.
They danced and danced and then danced a little bit more. I’m pretty sure they were still dancing long after I had gone home.
Thank you, Marc and Neisha, for allowing me to participate in your Reception and for trusting me to capture and preserve some of your first, special memories together.
