What I like about Jennifer and Lloyd is that they seem to be game for anything, always ready to have fun and they don’t take themselves too seriously…. and that makes for a really fun and relaxed wedding day. They had their ceremony at Marty Leonard Chapel which has such beautiful lines and gorgeous window light for photography.. definitely a favorite for photography and they had their reception in the clean and modern ballroom of McDavid studio just across the street from Bass Hall.

A few moments from this wedding are going to be very hard to forget… First was the moment Jennifer’s dad came into the room to see her in the dress. I’m always anticipating making photos of that part of the day but this was one really sweet and beautiful moment. Another funny and memorable moment was just minutes later when we jumped outside into the cold on the rooftop to attempt  some portraits…  it was a shoot first talk later kind of moment as it had to be somewhere in the 20s up there. And the last moment I’ll mention was getting to ride in the getaway carriage with them toward downtown Fort Worth, I felt invisible for a moment as they took in the holiday lights and held a fleece blanket tightly around themselves.

Love,

Stephanie and Joe

Truthfully, color images are my default since I often don’t want to draw attention to decisions that I’ve made which might interrupt someone from thinking about the content of an image but when an image really works as a black and white it’s like I can’t see it any other way.

Here are two examples where I feel like the lack of color really helps…

In this image (above) I found the color of the walls and background distracted from the story and leading the eye thought the frame. In black and white it’s stronger emotionally and that is what this image is all about.

The reason for this black and white conversion for me is all about design, the marble and chrome lines just sing in black and white leading the viewer right to the beautiful couple. Color in this case detracts from the structure and framing which again causes the eye to wander and seems far less striking.

Just a couple of thoughts on this very gray morning…

 

Best,

I knew we were in for a truly spectacular day even before I arrived at Emily’s family home but when I saw all of their plans come together in the garden where they were married I was speechless and thankful to be a photographer because I can show you what we witnessed in images instead of words. Emily and Michael are truly two of the most fun, giving, adventurous and loving people and it was really a beautiful thing to watch them commit to one another.

My favorite moment on the wedding day… following Emily and Michael after the ceremony with the last light of day pouring over the treetops and watching them pass holding hands under a vine covered arch having been married only two minutes prior. It really felt like the beginning of a new chapter.

Thank you to both families, we were honored to be a part of this day.

Also a special thank you to the entire team we worked with at this wedding (links at the end of this post) but especially the maestro Wendy Kidd from Each and Every Detail and Clint and Lauren at Candelight Films, you can see their preview here.

Best,

Stephanie and Joe

One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to capture in pictures all of the love a couple pours into making their day beautiful and memorable.  For Karlie and Jonathan it started with an ideal location in the oh so gorgeous gardens of Marie Gabrielle which is tucked away on a sunlit deck in downtown Dallas. Right from the moment we arrived we were blown away by all of the unique touches and little places where they really elevated the experience of the event. I’ve tried to show a number of those things in the photos below (it’s only a fraction of what we captured) but if you’re planning a wedding this is an awesome place to start for some inspiration.

Two favorite moments from the day: First it was just moments before the ceremony and Karlie and her dad were just trying to stay calm and wait out the procession before their big entrance when her dad gently pulled Karlie to him, they closed their eyes and he whispered something to her, maybe it was a prayer or just ‘I love you’ but either way it is a perfect moment and photograph to me. Second actually came earlier in the day, and you can’t miss it in the images below, it was the classic moment during a first look as Jonathan was blown away when he first turned to see Karlie… just awesome.

Thank you to both families for having us, it was such an honor to be there with you.

Best,

Stephanie and Joe

P.S. I’m almost finished with the wedding… the whole shebang should be online soon.. stay tuned
