I recently had the opportunity to visit Texas for the first time to photograph a wedding with a good friend of mine, Jessica Rivard. We had one extra day during my visit with no plans, so we decided it would be a great chance to plan a styled shoot together. So we dreamt up a romantic and whimsical wedding shoot, with touches of lavender hues and lush florals. Seeing this shoot come together was just incredible. From the loveliest off the shoulder gown by Sarah Seven, to the raw gemstone ring, that tied in the colors of the shoot perfectly. Our models, Kailey and Charlie, are a married couple with so much obvious love and chemistry together. It allowed us to just step back and observe them from behind our lenses. The shoot took place at the drop dead gorgeous venue in Dallas, Texas, The Chapel at Ana Villa. From the elegant ballroom to the lovely outdoor area, it was everything you dream about in a wedding venue. It was a great first visit to Texas, I’m already itching to go back!
