Guess I am trying to make up for lost time after not posting for a month straight. I got plenty of stuff to share so please just keep on coming back for more great stuff!
I have had the pleasure of second shooting some weddings with some pretty awesome photographers, I love being able to second shoot with others, just makes for some fun times. This particular wedding I shot with Mr.Luke Edmonson himself and we captured the uniting of Clay and Whitney Jones at the Piazza in the Village in Colleyville, TX. I got to hang out with the guys before the ceremony which was awesome, and I ended up knowing a couple guys, which was a small world. This was such a beautiful wedding, Piazza in the Village is a wonderful place to shoot a wedding! Both families seemed to have a love and passion for music, Whitney and her father sang and danced with each other during their first dance, while Clay and his mother played a song together (Clay was on the guitar while his mother sang). It was such a fun wedding and so happy I was able to capture it with Luke. Here are some of my favorite images from the day and I’ll be sure to share a slideshow as well! Enjoy.
Boy do I love me an engagement session, ha. One of the reasons why I love being a Wedding Photographer in Dallas is because I get the pleasure (most of the time) to be able to also shoot an engagement session for the couple. Typically before a session begins I like to sit, relax and just talk to the couple and get to know them a little better. I think it helps us all relax and get comfortable with each other and it helps me figure out how to capture who they are as a couple. I already knew Amanda from high school but I had not met Jon before so it was great to finally meet him and just get to talk a little about their relationship. We spent this session walking around White Rock Lake in Dallas, although you would not know because I didn’t take any pictures of the actually lake this time around, haha. I had such a good time walking around with these two in the evening heat, they were troopers during the session and didn’t complain one bit! I really enjoyed the Black and White photos for this session as you will see below, enjoy some of my favorites!
In other news, you will notice that I added the facebook “like” button on the end of all my posts. So if you “like” what you see feel free to share it with your friends. I sure would “like” you for it!
It is FINALLY time to share this super fun family session with you, I have been dying to edit these ever since I took them but I had several sessions to edit before I could start on these! This is the wonderful Harisis Family and this is not the first time for me to photograph their session and I am sure it won’t be my last. I have the pleasure of being related to this fun family, these are all my cousins
We met up in the old downtown Mesquite Square for this session and I was so excited for this session because I knew we would all have fun. I had already pre-planned the first shot on this post before it started and knew it would be a cute picture if I could get what I had in my head on camera. In my head though I pictured a happy, fun, smiling family willing to do whatever I wanted them to do, I wasn’t counting on one tiny member of the family not willing to cooperate with me. This tiny member of the family, who shall remain nameless, didn’t want anything to do with my picture and didn’t want to even lay on the ground, so he (or she) started to throw a little fit (anyone with little ones know the kind), after a little bit of persuasion from Pappa Bear we were at least able to get everyone on the ground. Everyone was ready to go, having a good time, and smiling, except that one! But I didn’t let that stop me, we started taking pictures and everyone who wanted to smile for the camera did, but I still didn’t want just one person crying in the picture so I had an idea, why not have everyone start crying in the picture! So that is exactly what we did, we had everyone in the picture pretend to cry so that everyone would have the same expression, and I am so happy we did it because this has ended up being one of my favorite family portraits to date.
I loved so many of the images from this session so I hope you take the time to click the link at the end of this post to see all my favorites. I have one more story to share as well to give you some insight on some photos. Xander is the smallest one of the bunch and he was cracking me up during this session because one of the ways we were able to keep his attention was to play music through an iphone, but we aren’t talking about some kind of kid music, we are talking hard-core heavy metal, think along the lines of Slip Knot, hahaha! I thought it was the funniest thing that this hard-core music would calm him down, he would start singing and playing some air drums and all would be well with the world. The family also loves to play games such as Rock Band so I thought it would be appropriate to get a family shot of everyone pretending to be rocking out, I am talking air drums, air guitar, air singing, whatever they wanted to do to bring out their inner-rock star. So I included one image of them rocking out and then I added a little animation putting their frames together so you could get the full effect of the whole family rocking out.
Enjoy these fun images!
