I arrived a little early at the Stockyards so I could park and get prepared but my normal parking lot was blocked off for “staff only”. And the guard/attendant was ensuring that anyone not supposed to be in that parking lot, wasn’t. Crazy! Turned out that the filming for the Yellowstone Prequel, “1883” was underway! So cool! I had no idea that was going on. I’ve never seen Yellowstone but I heard it’s pretty good.

It always blows my mind how small our world is. Shelby and I were first introduced at her sister Mogan’s wedding where Philip and I were their photographers. So exciting when we get to see the whole family again! But then, at the start of our engagement session, Shelby asks me if I had pieced together that she actually went to school with my daughter! What?! That’s nuts! Of course the first thing I did when I got home was tell Alyssa and she went on about how nice Shelby is. And my daughter is right!

There is no doubt how happy Shelby + Zeb are together! Don’t these two make a great pair?! No need to tell these two to smile cause they have that down pact! : ) The cactus garden was the perfect backdrop for Shelby + Zeb. And it wasn’t even too hot! That is a win win!

After our session, we chatted a bit about their wedding day and got to browse the venue a bit (on the phone of course) and holy moly, you guys are in for a treat! It has some pretty spectacular views! You will have to wait until April to see! For now, here are a few of our favorites from Tuesday’s Session in Fort Worth!

After arriving to the Westin Hotel in Downtown Dallas, we took the elevator to the 32 floor where the reception was being held. As soon as the elevator doors opened, the scent of florals greeted us! Crazy because we still had to walk down a hall to get to the room. We were absolutely blown […]

All I can say is… WOW! And that wow goes to all the things! First off, who knew that there was this beautiful winery in Weatherford, Texas?! When we were driving up, I was blown away at all of the rows and rows of grapevines. The views are absolutely stunning! When I walked into the […]

Lisa + Mat’s wedding day started and ended with so much joy and all the fun in between! Weston Gardens is such a beautiful backdrop for a wedding and reception. And on this day, we were blessed with all the cloud cover and cool breeze! It made for a pretty magical night! Philip and I […]
