Kelley is a beautiful bride and her personality is just as stunning. You may recognize her from this ultra cool engagement Dallas area Film inspired session we did in Dallas a few weeks back in Turtle Creek, Uptown and the rooftop of Southside on Lamar. If you haven’t seen it, its worth the look.

When we began planning her bridal portraits several months ago, I had no idea when we stepped out and began photographing in that vineyard I would be so inspired by the light and wouldn’t be able to move from the same row the entire shoot. Waiting for what felt like an eternity moved so quickly while we were among the vines and showered with golden sunlight that afternoon. Kate Foley Designs creatively created a beautiful bridal bouquet for Kelley’s session. I had an awesome team to help out that day, Teresa is fantastic and an expert bouncer of light, Kelley’s bridesmaids learned how to lace the wedding dress in record time and ready for whatever the wedding day throws their way. The green chair’s appearance has made it to another one of my bridals. The green chair’s owner is Robin with DiFiori – look for a special project from her soon with the chair.

The owner of the Wales Manor & Vineyard was a real hoot. He drove along the rows of the vineyard in his gator with his trusty sidekick, Vino (the dog) along side him. He couldn’t help but sit with us for the session and I talk to us about his property, Kelley’s dress, and all of the props we had for the session. I brought one of my vintage birdcages, Kelley brought a handful of others including, a violin, some suitcases, bubbles, and even a parasol. It was a great session and an honor to work with such a fun bride. I hope your wedding is gorgeous and I so wish I could be there to cheer you and Matt on for your day! Have fun and may each day be better than the last for you two love birds. You deserve it 🙂
