Blair's Getting Married!


Blair and her fiance Steve are getting married next month in Las Vegas, so we made our way down to Las Colinas for a bridal session late this afternoon. She looked fantastic and really let loose and had some fun as the session went on, and I think the images we created are amazing.

Today's session was very cool because I was able to try some new things with a portable flash and softbox. I'm normally au natural when it comes to lighting, but I've been wanting to play with light of the man-made variety, and this evening was the perfect time to try it out as the sun faded behind the horizon. I'm really excited with the results and look forward to doing more of this kind of lighting; it really adds a sense of depth and drama to the images.

Congratulations, Blair and proud mom, Vicki. I can't wait for you guys to see the rest of your images. Stay tuned for a slideshow in a future post!

Matt--
You are a GENIUS!! Thank you so much for the session--Blair loved it! She was not expecting to have so much fun and she was so happy. I can't believe how gorgeous the "sneak peak" pictures are!

I mean, I knew you were very talented which is why I wanted you to take these most important pictures --BUT you are a true artist and we are so blessed to have made this connection.

Thank you again for everything. We look forward to meeting with you to make the more difficult decisions about choosing pictures.

Thanks so much!
Vicki

This is great! I think you should send the one of her under the stairs in to D and advertise-you would get hits like crazy!

You are so talented!

I have to say that I am speechless!! While I looked at your amazing photos along with the fantastic music, I found myself "teary" eyed. I did Blair's hair for the pics and Vicki gave me your website to take a look. I never expected them to be so unbelievable! You are truly gifted and I can't wait to to use your services for my family. Thanks for the inspiring look into other people's lives.
