This weekend I had the honor of shooting Aubrey and Bryan’s beautiful wedding in Houston, TX. I met Aubrey through a friend a while back and we just became friends. We hung out a few times, and she told me all about Bryan. When he proposed, I was so stoked and couldn’t wait to shoot their photos. We went out to downtown Fort Worth and had such an amazing time that we ended up going for pizza after. Then, a few months later, I headed back to Fort Worth to take Aubrey’s bridal photos. She chose the Dallas arboretum as a location, and since I wanted to best light possible, we were up at 5 am getting ready and driving into Dallas. (And if you know me, you know that I am not a morning person, and I must really really love someone if I’m willing to wake up early for them. Haha) We looked pretty ridiculous, the two of us loaded down with cold rags (it was BLAZING hot by the time the sun came up) and all my gear and touch up stuff… not to mention Aubrey in her huge dress! We had a great time walking around and shooting, and she even showed me right where Bryan proposed to her. (Did I mention that? He proposed at the arboretum. How beautiful, right?) My absolute favorite part of the day happened while walking out. This little girl was holding her mom’s hand and as we walked by she got the widest eyes, pulled her mom’s arm and said, “Look mom! A princess….” She was so cute and in awe. And Aubrey was stunning. But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself….
I can’t wait to share photos from the Schlackman wedding… it was hot and humid and I got bit by fire ants (I’m convinced these creatures are straight from hell. Ugh.) but I got to photograph and be a part of the most beautiful love story, and I’m so grateful for that 🙂
