State Fair of Texas engagement pictures

State Fair of Texas is back! yLast year I got to enjoy the Dallas State Fair with a camera in one hand and a corn dog in the other. These 2 lovebirds love the fair, so they wanted to do a casual & fun engagement shoot their before their Dallas wedding. So that is exactly what we did: played games, rode the rides, ate the food, discovered new things that can be fried, and said hello to Big Tex…all while taking engagement pictures.

So while some people are at their computer wondering: is the State Fair worth it? How much are tickets at the State Fair? What is the best thing to eat at the State Fair? What is your favorite thing to do at the State Fair? Parking at the State Fair. Hours of the State Fair….and many more things that run through peoples heads….we were out just having a blast and making memories!  So cheers to another great year at Fair Park enjoying Big Tex and all this delicious food.

David and Priscilla | Stone Crest Wedding, take 3

Priscilla and David had perseverance when planning their wedding through the covid pandemic. 
They rescheduled 3 times as they tried their hardest for their international family to be able to celebrate with them. Despite their best efforts, they ended up having to move forward without everyone in attendance. A pandemic that was ongoing and international travel made this a really hard decision. But they were able to finally get married! And that is something to celebrate. 

The had their wedding at Stone Crest Venue in McKinney. Though much smaller than they planned and much later than they planned, it happened! And for those who could make it, it was a celebration to remember! They did it! It was a beautiful wedding. And the vision they had for the wedding came to reality at Stone Crest! Congrats to these two!

Brewery Engagement Session at Intrinsic

Who wouldn’t want to have an engagement session at a brewery like Intrinsic Smokehouse & Brewery? Not only do they have great beer, great food, and a great atmosphere…but then you get to drink at your engagement session! Worried about your nerves at your session? Have a beer! Worried about getting hungry? Have your session at a smokehouse. Worried about the summer heat? Have it inside! Check, check, check! These two found the gold mine of engagement session locations! And there is just something really neat about an empty restaurant and brewery! It was so fun! 

We started off in the tap room, and then took some photos on their outdoor patio and back where the beer is brewed! After a few outfit changes we headed out to the historic downtown square of garland for some more photos. These two are super laid back and we so fun to hang out with! We have another date at a brewry this fall when they become one of the first couples to get married at the new Community Beer location! Get ready folks, this wedding is going to be amazing!

Nasher Sculpture Center Engagement Session in Dallas

An engagement session at the Nasher Sculpture center was the perfect spot for Ryan and Sarah. Ryan and Sarah love the arts. They go to museums and theaters all the time. The truly appreciate the creative side of life. 

With that, they got all dressed up on a hot summer morning to start their session nat Klyde Warren park in Dallas. After the skyline, we had the entire Nasher Sculpture Center to ourselves! The location was perfect for these two, and so different from their rustic wedding they have coming up. The engagements were among art. Their wedding will be among the trees at River Road Chateau.  I am excited for these two!!
