Jeni and Cory’s Slate Venues at II Creeks Wedding

Jeni and Cory’s Slate Venues at II Creeks wedding day was short and sweet for us, but that didn’t mean I didn’t have the opportunity to capture beautiful moments when they happened. Our day started just a bit before the wedding ceremony began to take some quick getting ready photos. After the ceremony, we took family and bridal party portraits at Prairie Creek Park, and then stayed to photograph the reception until the formal events were over. Be sure to scroll down to see some of the moments with the newlyweds in Cory’s dad’s fancy red Cadillac!

Jeni and Cory actually met back in high school and dated for a few months, and then each went their own way after things didn’t work out. Then, out of the blue several years later, they connected online via Facebook messenger and officially became a couple in 2013. Cory then proposed at Reunion Tower in 2018 with their friends by their side. And now, in 2019, they’ve made it official! We are so happy for these two and can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Tanner and Kim’s Fort Worth Engagement Session

Tanner and Kim’s Fort Worth engagement session – where should I start? I met them both working my first official photography job after graduating college with my BFA. Tanner and I worked in a large warehouse that processed marathon race photos. My job was to color correct photos for printing day in and day out, and I eventually upgraded to advanced Photoshop retouching along with a bit of graphic design. Tanner was technically my supervisor, but he and I became friends because we both shared the same taste in music and sense of humor. I also met Kim towards the beginning of working that job as well via Tanner’s and her group of amazing friends. At the time, I remember Tanner being super excited for her to move back to Fort Worth after she finished her degree in Austin. Additionally, I feel like we all became close friends when Tanner drummed for Nick’s band, Lindby, for awhile. These days, we all consider Tanner an honorary Lindby member since he occasionally provides AWESOME remixes, electronic collaborations, and production for them!

Here are links to a couple of my favorite tracks that Tanner worked on (this is not required listening – I’m just so proud and excited for my musically inclined friends)

When I first branched out on my own and decided to make this whole photography business thing work, Tanner and Kim were one of the first couples I ever photographed! So when it came time to celebrate their engagement, I reached out to see if they’d let me have the honor of taking their engagement photos. (They said yes!) We meandered around Fort Worth looking for the best light and then headed over to Trinity Park for some family portraits with their pup, Adelaide.

The Austin-based bachelor/bachelorette parties are done (and were such fun!), and tomorrow, Nick and I are SO EXCITED to attend their wedding as guests! We’ll be dancing the night away celebrating our good, good friends start this new chapter in life. Congratulations, Tanner and Kim!!!

Obligatory plug to say we’ve still got some Fall availability this year and would love to document your love!

Lola and Armando’s Trinity River Audubon Center Wedding

Lola and Armando’s Trinity River Audubon Center wedding was simple and personal. They are a very outdoorsy couple, and are big fans of outer space and science (aka 100% my people). We had a little different routine for their wedding day in that we started immediately with their first look and portraits, rather than “getting ready” and at a venue like theirs, we had plenty of gorgeous light and scenery for portraits. They also had a couple of nerdy touches – such as the Game of Thrones inspired signs on their head table and a galaxy photo backdrop for their guests to use.

Another lovely personal touch was their use of a wish tree from their home. Guests were invited to write notes of wishes for Lola and Armando as they start this new chapter of their lives together. I managed to take a photo of Lola’s wish – “To grow old with Armando.”

Their ceremony was short and sweet, with handwritten vows and pledging to journey through life as equals. We are 100% here for #MissiontoMartinez! Congratulations to the lovely couple – we so enjoyed being your photographers.

It was so great to return to photograph another Trinity River Audubon Center wedding. Whenever I visit I tend to forget we’re in Dallas, TX – the stunning architecture and scenery are unmatched in this area.
