PEAK workshop || editorial bride || the lumen room - dallas, texas

this month, i had the pleasure of attending the PEAK workshop, which was an afternoon full of learning and styled shoots put on by arcadian co. the event was held at the lumen room, which is one of my favorite studio/event spaces in dallas! i love doing my boudoir sessions there, the simple decor and all white space create killer light and fab images.

PEAK was expertly styled with an awesome boho vibe, which i am so drawn to lately. gimme all the boho brides, please! 

i'm going to break up the shoots into four blog posts: editorial bridal, the boho bride, bride and groom, and details. today, we're starting with rebekah, our KILLER boho editorial bridal. with her gold dress and crown headpiece, she definitely brought some edge to the typical bridal look. this part of the shoot really stretched me creatively. as a working model, rebekah was down to experiment with more editorial posing. as a dancer, i always love getting to play with posing and with rebekah's unique (AND GORGEOUS !!!) look, i am really happy with how it turned out!

madison + randy || the milestone mansion || aubrey, texas

madison and randy were my first wedding of 2107 and they kicked off the year in style! this was such a classically gorgeous wedding. the milestone in aubrey is one of my favorite wedding venues in DFW. the decor featured lots of simple, but elegant touches. madison and randy were so relaxed and easy going during the day, which is how i want my couples!

sarah + alton || engaged || fort worth botanical gardens

sarah and alton were a dream to photograph! I was actually on drill team with sarah back in high school, so getting to shoot her engagements (and wedding!) was so awesome. we had fun exploring the botanical gardens in fort worth, which is one of my favorite places to do an an engagement session. enjoy their classic engagement session!

chelsea + chris || dallas arboretum || elopement

so we all know that I am terrible about blogging, right? so nobody will be surprised that this elopement is from LAST summer? okay, good.

i was so excited to shoot chelsea + chris's small elopement at the dallas arboretum. it was my first elopement, and the shorter schedule was so nice! did a few getting ready shots, drove to the venue, and knocked out the ceremony, family formals, and bride and groom shots within an hour and a half! (added bonus: it was a cool 100 degree day, so the quick schedule also kept us all from dying of heat exhaustion.)

i hope you enjoy this small glimpse of chelsea + chris's day!
