Ben and Cassidy’s Wedding at The Milestone

Posted by Melissa Claire Photography on April 5, 2017 in Weddings | No Comments

Ben and Cassidy’s wedding at The Milestone was a wonderfully wintry, black tie affair. The Milestone is a mansion venue located in Krum, TX. Cassidy wanted a 100% traditional wedding day and had been dreaming of the moment of Ben’s reaction when she was walked down the aisle. Be sure to scroll down and see one of my favorite groom reactions to date. Their wedding colors were black and gold, which was so unique but perfectly complimented their wintry wedding. The color scheme also added a timeless element to their day. The wedding day went by incredibly smoothly, and we had many opportunities to utilize the beautiful lighting that occurs at The Milestone.

They were both surrounded by so much love from both their friends and family all day that it was contagious.

Cassidy was such a beautiful bride, and it was wonderful getting to know her and her family as we took these portraits! Her mom, Lori, said they’re a bunch of fun, silly people, and we really loved getting to shoot this wedding for them. Stay tuned for Cassidy and Ben’s wedding coming up on the blog soon!

Kassie’s Bridal Session at Grapevine Botanical Gardens

Posted by Melissa Claire Photography on March 21, 2017 in Bridal | No Comments

The Grapevine Botanical Gardens are a wonderful location for photography at any time of year. Kassie was such a trooper for meeting me early in the morning on a Saturday to take her photos. One of my sweet former brides, Kim, even did her hair and makeup! Stay tuned for Kassie and Scott’s wedding in the Rio Grande Valley coming up soon. In the meantime, please enjoy some of my favorite photos from her bridal session.

Don’t you love the vibrant blue flower in her hair?

If you’re on the fence for whether to do a bridal session or not, keep in mind they are always so much fun! If you’re having a hair/makeup trial run with your artist, you may as well treat yourself and have another opportunity to wear “The Dress” after all. I always love helping my brides feel confident and am not beyond helping you into your dress or offering pep talks!

I am a Dallas/Fort Worth/Denton Texas based wedding photographer. I specialize in photographing weddings for bold and free spirited couples.

Best Of 2017 – Thank You!!

Posted by Melissa Claire Photography on March 15, 2017 in Personal, Weddings | No Comments

I started my business five years ago this spring. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to photograph many weddings of couples who are crazy about each other. During the wedding planning process, it’s not only a joy to get to know couples but their families as well! I believe that wedding days are important, yes, but it’s not “The Most Important Day Of Your Life.” I believe all of the days after your wedding day are what matters. When life gets you down, there is nothing better than having a loving and supportive partner by your side. I’ve also been lucky enough to get to photograph most weddings with my husband, Nick! We can’t wait to see what the future holds. THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to write us reviews and for trusting us to preserve your memories. Here’s to another wonderful year!

Sarah and Kyler’s Wedding at Piazza in the Village

Posted by Melissa Claire Photography on March 8, 2017 in Weddings | No Comments

Piazza in the Village is a lovely wedding venue in Colleyville, TX. Sarah and Kyler’s wedding day had a truly laid back but classic vibe. The wedding planning and coordinating was mainly done with Sarah’s mom, Debra, who was an absolutely delightful person to work with, and I was so honored to be the one documenting this special day for them.

Sarah and Kyler were the kind of couple I love photographing: fun-loving, adventurous, and totally trusting of me and my vision (and tendency to lead people down alleyways!).

Additionally, it was a huge treat to get to work with DJ Rob Williams again! It was a total coincidence getting to work with him twice in one season. Brides, if you’re looking for a great DJ guaranteed to get your guests up and dancing, don’t hesitate to contact him.

I hope y’all enjoy these photos as much as we loved taking them.
