Y’all. I just love these two. I know I say that every time, but I was so fortunate to truly find some kindred spirits in Shannon and Chris when they booked me to photograph their wedding at Jefferson Tower Events in Oak Cliff. I am still not over over how gorgeous that venue is…and how amazing their team of vendors were. Add on the fact that Shannon truly has some of the loveliest taste - it was such a pleasure to be there with them and their loved ones. And please keep in mind that this sneak peek doesn’t even include any of the rooftop sunset photos…BUT THAT WAS A REAL THING.
This was a day that was full of all the best kinds of real emotion. There’s something so sweet about their love. So without pretense. So without judgement. Just absolute tenderness and rock-solid-you-can’t-always-count-on-me-ness at the same time. The stuff that lasting marriages are built on. And now that the pregnancy emotions have gotten to me, I just have to say that it was such an honor to meet these two and to work with them. I really couldn’t have asked for a better experience to tie up some of my last weddings of the year before my maternity leave kicks in.
At any rate, I struggled to select 20-30 images for a sneak peek, so here are a TON of some of my favorites. Trust that there are SO MANY MORE and that it was a real challenge to even narrow it down to some of these. Three more weddings and I’m done for the year, y’all. I can’t believe it, but I’m so grateful to have been able to be a witness to some of the most genuine love ever this year. What a dang gift.
Also, Sergeant Pepper (their dog) is officially my favorite wedding dog ever. Hands down.
