Pashaei & Nasafat Family Photos in Highland Park

In April, I photographed the Pashaei & Nasafat family at Lakeside Park in Highland Park, Texas. I had a great time photographing this family, and I'm glad we fit their session in while Sepideh's parents were visiting from Iran, and before the family moves out of town (and out of country)! One important focus for this session was to capture photos of the family interacting, and to accomplish that, Hamed was telling plenty of jokes to get the kids laughing. I was sure wishing I understood Farsi! I know I missed out on some good jokes. Enjoy a few of my favorite photos from this session.

Fort Worth Bridal Portraits at TCU: Christen

Last month, I spent a whole day in Fort Worth so that I could capture Christen's bridal portraits in the morning, and then meet up again with Christen and her fiance Joe in the evening for their engagement portraits. We started Christen's bridal session at Saint Patrick Cathedral in downtown. This is the church Christen grew up in. This is where Christen and Joe met, in the choir. This is where Joe proposed. This is where they were married over the weekend, surrounded by their friends and family. After we shot some on the church grounds, we went over to the TCU campus, which is a beautiful backdrop and also Christen's alma mater. Having to wait to share the photos is always the hardest part about bridal portrait sessions! I'm happy to finally share these photos of beautiful Christen with you all.

A Wintry, December Wedding at Ashton Gardens Dallas: Siobhan & Jason

Remember that nasty ice storm we had back in December? Unfortunately it overlapped with Jason and Siobhan's wedding day at Ashton Gardens in Corinth, Texas. It would usually take a little less than an hour for me to get to Ashton Gardens from my home, but after the 2 hours spent de-icing my car, it took me another 3.5 hours on the road in horrible conditions to get to Corinth. I made it though, as did all of the wedding party, all of the other vendors, and some of the guests. Many guests couldn't make it, but those who could were treated to one heck of a gorgeous wedding. I enjoyed using the thick ice as a backdrop for some of my detail shots; it's a bit of a novelty to have something white on the ground here in Texas! I planned ahead and got a hotel room when I saw the forecast, and thankfully had a pull-out couch in my room for some friends at the wedding who realized that the roads would be even more treacherous after dark. There were many things that did not go as planned, but I hope Siobhan and Jason still have fond memories of their wedding day. Happy six month anniversary, you two!

I'm absolutely in love with the florals provided by Petals Couture, the huge, sparkly cake from The Cake Guys, all of Ashton Gardens' chandeliers, and the huge amount of DIY decor put together by Siobhan and her mom. It all came together for one incredibly classy, winter wedding.
