I love photographing such sweet wedding couples! Meet Melissa and James … I am pumped about their fall wedding in Dallas and can not wait to photograph them again. I first met Melissa at a Dallas wedding show…OUR FIRST BRIDAL show in 7 years. I can’t tell you how nervous we were to do our first bridal show. We were about to be in front of a ton of couples…all looking through our work. Ok, so I was super-pumped about it, but really nervous.Â I saw this red gorgeous hair walk into our booth and said, “We NEED you in front of my camera”. Its true…we (ol’ Canon gal and me)..we needed it!. She had talked me a little more after the show and was still unsure of her wedding date or venue. Once she decided on Hall of State and a date, we were ready to get Melissa and James on the books (and in front of my camera!). She is working with a fantastic wedding planner along the way and I was excited to meet her as well. Kimberly, with Hitched Events….I knew Kimberly and I were going to be great pals when she said “oh, I love your big wedding albums!”. Over coffee, we chatted and I looked at some of Melissa’s artwork as well. Its not every day you meet such an inspiring person. Melissa is a true artist. She has some amazing work and I was in awe of her talent. James is an attorney but quite the artist himself. He proposed to Melissa with a song, that he played on the guitar, and sang….be still my romantic heart! Old 97’s “Question” to be exact… Can it get any sweeter? Well, almost….they brought cupcakes to the session and they were delicious. Not quite as sweet as their story…but certainly yummy! We started the session in the arts district of Dallas and made our way around town finding the most beautiful light.
