Dallas Arboretum Bridal Photos | Dallas Wedding Photographer

Today I’m sharing these gorgeous bridal portraits photographed at the Dallas Arboretum. Anastasia & Ray were married at the end of September, so that meant that her bridals had to be photographed in the midst of the Texas summer heat. It was a pretty warm day when we shot these, but you would never know! Anastasia’s hair and makeup (and her composure) withstood the intense Texas heat!

I absolutely love the details in Anastasia’s dress - the ruffles, lace, and intricate beading details are so elegant and the fit was amazing! Photographing such a feminine and detailed dress in the garden settings was just a dream. But I’ll leave you to the photos so that you can see for yourself…

Alexa's Bridal Portraits | McKinney Cotton Mill

It’s been so hard to hold on to these bridals and not share them! Alexa and Joseph’s wedding was Saturday, so finally, I get to share her amazing bridal session! We met at the McKinney Cotton Mill at the end of the April for these and I’m just IN LOVE with this session. Her dress, the location, the light, not to mention how gorgeous Alexa is - these all came together to for some stunning bridal portraits.

I can’t recommend bridal portraits enough to my clients. In this particular instance Alexa was able to determine a few little things she wanted to change about her bouquet and she was able to see how her makeup & hair would withstand some warm temperatures. It also saved time on the wedding day and she was able to display some of her favorites at the reception. 

Can you believe this session?! I can’t wait to share my favorites from her gorgeous wedding in a few weeks!

Annie's Bridal Session | Dallas Arboretum

Last Saturday I had the honor of shooting Annie & Eric’s Dallas wedding at St. Thomas Aquinas. It was beautiful wedding and they were surrounded by friends & family to celebrate their love. I’ll be sharing those photos in just a few weeks, but before the wedding, Annie and I meet up for a bridal session at the Dallas Arboretum.

I’m so glad that Annie chose to add a bridal session to her wedding photos, because I’m just in love with how these turned out and I can just imagine her kids & grandkids looking back at how beautiful their grandmother was in her wedding dress (maybe the same dress they’ll wear someday)!

We meet up on a Sunday morning at the Dallas Arboretum. The air was cool and crisp - you couldn’t ask for more perfect weather to shoot bridals portraits. There are just so many beautiful spots at the Arboretum, but the poetry garden is one of my favorites. The old world elegance of the garden coupled with Annie’s classic lace dress is just perfection. And can you believe the details on this dress?! It’s all handmade by a friend of hers. What a beautiful gift from a friend!

This was also a great opportunity to determine if there were any changes needed to the fitting of the dress or to Annie’s makeup or hair, but I think everything was perfect!

And I can’t wait to share the wedding details in a few weeks!
