Lovely Dallas Engagement Shoot by Blue Scope Photography

POSTED IN Dallas, Engagement Session, Inspiration

This lovely engagement shoot was sent in by Blue Scope Photography. This couple is clearly in love and extremely comfortable in each other’s arms. There are a variety of great poses in these photos that don’t look overly staged. A photographer’s job is to make sure their subjects are relaxed and having fun–and this couple definitely looks like they are having a great time. Choosing a location like the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens gives the photographer a variety of gorgeous backgrounds to choose from. Mixing up wide shots and close up shots of the couple and framing shots around tree branches and water reflections makes sure that the bride and groom-to-be have a variety of photos to cherish for years to come. Check out more photos from this engagement shoot in the gallery.

From Blue Scope Photography…Let’s meet Nicole and Andrew!! These two met while in college. A casual set up from roommates led to these two lovebirds taking their friendship to something a little more than just casual. Since then, these two have been inseparable and their beautiful engagement tells their love story. We met at the Dallas Arboretum Botanical Gardens for their lovely engagement session. It was a cold chilly 30-degree morning but you got no complaints from anyone, especially since Nicole was wearing a dress. If she could tough it out then everyone else sure was going to toughen it out as well. As we were walking around the gorgeous scenery, I simply asked them if there was a particular area at the Arboretum that they wanted to make sure was included in their engagement photos. Nicole simply replied, “Do your thing. We trust you and know you’re going to knock it out the park.” So with that vote of confidence, I took their trust and told their love story. In reality, they did all the work because I just directed them to be themselves and their love will be on display. Congratulations to Nicole and Andrew, I know your wedding this May will be amazing!

Lovely Krum Bridal Shoot by Brandi McComb Photography

POSTED IN Bridals, Fort Worth, Inspiration

This lovely Krum bridal shoot was submitted by Brandi McComb Photography. I love looking at styled wedding shoots. They are a great opportunity to see the imagination of several vendors who can let their imaginations run wild. While many styled shoots have a specific design theme, this one has more of a focus on the venue Hawthorn Hills Ranch. Choosing a venue is hard for anyone – seeing photos of a bride in the space you are looking at is extremely helpful even if your style is completely different than the style in the photos. Standouts in this styled shoot that aren’t focused on the venue include a white wedding cake ringed with fresh rosemary and a modern blue cake. Check out more photos from this bridal shoot in the gallery.

From Brandi McComb PhotographyI love styled shoots! I love even more to work with numerous creative and talented vendors to bring my vision to life. Each year I do many styled shoots and I try to keep each of them different and unique. I reach out to only the top vendors in the industry that I know will do a fantastic job. I first decide on my theme, then what my color palette will be and work from there.

On this particular shoot I already knew it would take place at the new gorgeous venue Hawthorn Hills Ranch. I then reached out to models, hair and makeup, décor, floral, cake, and the dress shop. We literally had only days to pull it off and I could not have been more thrilled with the outcome. We wanted to show future brides this venue with the idea in mind of how a wedding ceremony and reception might look but with our special touch.
