Yay! I can finally share images from this shoot. It was featured last week on Every Last Detail.
A few months ago, I saw that Lauren, editor of Every Last Detail, was looking for submissions for her Style Dictionary. It’s a great resource for brides to see certain styles, so that when they are working with their teams of vendors, they can accurately articulate the type of feeling and vibe they want for their wedding day. Well, I dreamed up the idea of juxtaposing a backyard wedding with some glam. I enlisted the help of Ebony Peoples, whose aesthetic is definitely glam, along with a wonderful team of vendors to bring this concept together. We came up with a perfect balance of glam, while still maintaining a casual ambiance.
After photographing this styled shoot, I think that I can no longer scheduled outdoor photo shoots in the summer. This is from the middle of July, and even around 6pm, it was still super hot, sweaty, and all around miserable. However, in spite of the sweltering heat, we had a great shoot! Many thanks to the talents of Ebony Peoples Events & Design, Doodle Dog Creative, Bows & Arrows, Sugar Bee Sweets, and our awesome models and real-life couple, Adrienne & Brandon.
The shoot was photographed at Centennial Park in Irving, which is a delightful location for an engagement session, bridal session, or a beloved session.
Thanks again to all the vendors who participated in this shoot!

If I said that the models for the Dallas Winter Shootout were good, that would be the understatement of the year. THEY. WERE AWESOME.
In fact, both of our couples weren’t models at all. Our bride and groom are Corbin & Dave of Soulbox Productions. They produce Super 8mm films, so if you’re looking for something different, be sure to check out Soulbox Productions. They totally rocked it out – and would you believe they’ve been married 12 years this year! I asked if they married when they were teenagers
Our engagement couple are newlyweds Jovan & Ebony, and Ebony is owner of Ebony Peoples Events & Design. Much like myself, she’s a transplant to Texas from Michigan and is starting up her event planning firm here in Dallas. She and her hubby Jovan have become fast friends with both Cent and I, and we’re thrilled to have more married friends!
And last but not least, Prianna was our bridal model. For real, this girl, she just made photographing her effortless. With her sweet disposition and readiness to pose as asked, Prianna was awesome. Many thanks to Chelsea of Southern Fried Paper for hooking us up with her!
I love this cake. Heidi of Sugar Bee Sweets made it and it was amazing!
Alicia of bows & arrows designed all the floral. Gorgeous.
