My journey with this couple started 5 years ago… before they met.
It started when I met Blythe’s family and photographed her older sister’s wedding.
It was my first wedding as the primary photographer.
I was terrified.
The gravity of being responsible for creating a couple’s first heirloom – their wedding day images – kept me from taking the plunge years earlier.
But then… I met Blythe’s family.
They were warm, confident and certain I was the person for Kambree & Russell’s wedding.
Because of their confidence in me,
that was the day I fell in love with photographing love.
And I haven’t looked back since.
Blythe and Austin chose Lost Oak Winery to say I do.
The symbolism isn’t lost on me.
I’m always looking for it.
They chose a vineyard.
A place where vines grow in dry soil, climbing, intertwining, reaching their way toward the sun.
Stretching, they extend, wrapping around each other, toward golden light.
It’s from the fruit they produce together, that wine is made.
No two grapes are the same, but the symphony of flavors form the perfect combination.
Marriage, is a bit like that. Two coming together, promises made, the intertwining of lives.
The weather was warm and the people were warmer.
Blythe and Austin’s outdoor ceremony was beautiful, and together
we discovered pockets of golden light when we photographed their portraits.
It was a perfect.
Russell officiated the wedding, and his wife Kambree (Blythe’s sister) is the beautiful redhead to the left.
Blythe and Austin, thank you. I had so much fun getting to know you both during your engagement session at the Dallas Arboretum (and you’re right, it’s become quite popular for me;). And your wedding day was perfection.
Prayers for a lifetime of joy.
