I think I must have been living under a rock as when I was asked to photograph Kay and Phil from the hit TV show Duck Dynasty, I had no idea who they were! I posted a status update on Facebook and Twitter and my comments and likes literally EXPLODED! I had NO IDEA that Duck Dynasty had such a huge following!
I then realized it did when I saw that the show had more viewers than American Idol one week.(Which is UNHEARD of since it's a cable show.) So, I watched some episodes to see what all the fuss was about and I have to admit, the show is pretty darn funny! I love how down to earth they seem on the show and found them to be just the same in real life!
The shoot was for the Prestonwood Baptist Pregnancy Center fundraiser headed by my good friend Lisa Freeman. She did an AMAZING job of coordinating the event and pulling it off flawlessly!
It was great meeting everyone and Phil and Kay were the nicest folks ever! Here is a fun shot of me with them after we got done taking all the photos. Consider me a new fan!
My good friend Hiram Trillo and I drove up to Oklahoma City a couple of weeks ago to photograph the wonderful wedding of Stephanie and John Ryan at Castle Falls! There were lots of cool details everywhere we looked and it made for some fantastic photos!
We had so much fun getting to know all of Stephanie and John Ryan's friends and family too as they were all very accommodating and friendly! The day turned out to be absolutely gorgeous and the bride and groom both looked AMAZING! Here are some highlights of the day...Congrats again Stephanie and John Ryan!
I have to admit that I have been to the Sheraton in Arlington a million times and had no idea the outdoor part past the pool area was so GORGEOUS!! It is almost the perfect spot for an outdoor wedding! In fact, when Christy and Dale first showed me the spot, I was completely blown away! The wedding was organized by Donna Kelley and she did a fantastic job of making sure everything went as smoothly as possible! I can't wait to work with her again!
Christy and Dale are such a fun couple, it made my job really easy! As you can see, we got some great photos...
Last week we photographed the Wedding of James and Taylor in Dallas. What a wonderful couple with a great family and awesome friends! My buddy Jeremy Gilliam helped me out along with my assistant Kristina and we all had a fun time hanging out with everyone!
The ceremony took place at Christ the King Catholic Church and the reception at the Dallas Petroleum Club. It was great to work with some good friends like DJ Randall Stout and Colleen at Christ the King as they are simple the best at what they do! Here is a full list of the day's Vendors:
Floral - Garden Gate
DJ - Randall Stout
Ceremony - Christ the King
Reception - Dallas Petroleum Club
Planner - Lisa Dean
Cakes - Panini and Tu Lu's Bakery
Here are a few highlights from the day! Congrats again Taylor and James!
One of my favorite couples ever has to be Brittney and Scott! Ever since I met them, we have simply had nothing but a blast! The photos from their engagement session and Brittney's bridal session were so good, I simply could not wait for the wedding as I knew we would get some great shots!
The wedding ceremony took place at First United Methodist church in Downtown Dallas with the reception at the wonderful Anatole Hotel. Both Brittney and Scott looked amazing and I could tell that all of their guests were had a wonderful time all night.
Here are a few faves from the day...
