Angela | Samuel Farms Bridal Portrait Session

I first met Angela at her surprise proposal, which I was photographing. I was immediately touched by her genuine personality, and the amount of love that radiates around her, both for her family, and their love for her. There really aren't enough nice words on the planet to describe how much I just love her! And just in case I couldn't love her MORE she wore her mother's wedding dress, the year of her parents' 30 year wedding anniversary. It was absolutely beautifully restored by the folks at Pinstripes in Dallas with custom alterations done by Becky Fowler's Bridal of Irving, Texas.  

Whitney | Arkansas Bridal Portrait Photographer - Petit Jean Mountain

Winter weather in Arkansas is pretty unpredictable. Actually, weather in Arkansas is unpredictable year-round. So when Whitney approached me about doing her bridal portraits in December I knew we had at least a 50/50 chance for beautiful weather. As it got closer to the date for bridal portraits we had crazy rain, cold weather, and 70 degree days, so I had no idea what to expect but the day of her bridal portraits was absolutely, perfectly gorgeous. And of course, the day was no match for Whitney in her exquisitely retro, lace gown. And this was my first bride ever to have a one shoulder gown--I'm in love with them now! We drove up to her hometown of  Morrilton and traipsed around her parent's land and Petit Jean Mountain to capture these lovely bridal portraits. Her wedding bouquet was going to be mostly evergreen so I took the liberty of throwing a bouquet together from what I could find growing outside! Sidenote to say, I have often thought that if I didn't capture photos of weddings I would definitely want to be a floral designer! I heart Whitney is a classic southern beauty through and through and I absolutely adore her and her family! Her classic winter wedding was Saturday, so be looking for that coming soon, but in the meantime enjoy Whitney's wintry, southern bridal portraits! 

Megen's Bridals // Conway Arkansas Portrait Photographer

This session was absolutely a blast, even though we ran into a 2 and a half inch tarantula! First ever I have ever seen in my life! Eeek! However, despite the creepy crawly encounter I had so much fun capturing Megen's beauty amidst Conway's fall scenery and at the Cadron Creek Settlement Park. Megen is absolutely radiant, and I am so happy for her as she celebrated her marriage on Saturday! Louisiana is gaining a treasure! Wishing God's blessings on your marriage!
