I started planning this photography session with Kelley and Matt when Kelley learned about my vintage Canon Super 8. I took it to a Dallas engagement session she was filming….she does amazing work in Dallas Wedding Films. Kelley has been working on a film project for me and we decided to trade sessions. I can not wait to photograph her bridal portraits very soon…she is one of those people that will do what it takes to “get the shot”…people like her and Matt make me love what I do. This weekend was filled with two awesome Dallas pre-Wedding sessions.
They brought lots of props to photograph that afternoon; Deuce…one of the coolest dogs I know, Polaroids, flowers, wooden lips, a red heart balloon, a bowtie for Deuce, the Super 8, a floppy hat, a few outfit changes and shoes that were dangerously cute, and I am sure I am missing some items, but you get the idea. We had lots to play with. Props are great for photography sessions, as long as it flows with the tone of the session or the couple as a whole. Bringing a random item will leave me scratching my head how I can incorporate it into our session. Be sure you coordinate with me so we can be on the same page prior to photography time.
We started in Turtle Creek area of Dallas and made our way onto McKinney Ave in hopes we could catch the Trolley. I haven’t been able to have a session on, near, or remotely close to that thing yet! It never showed itself on the tracks while we waited, so then we completed our fun-filled engagement session very cinematicly on the roof of a building. Southside on Lamar to be exact. Thanks so much for the awesome day guys! I wish you a lifetime full of love and happiness! I wish I could make it to your wedding…I just know its going to be incredible!
