Affordable & Beautiful Wedding Dresses

Texas Wedding Dress Simply Bridal

Hey guys!  I’m going to PUNISH this 365 project so I want to apologize now for the late post.  Come next week I will have more time to post on a regular basis.  I will also start bringing back Looks of the Week and Top Links as well.  However, I wanted to share with you all some recent work that I have done for my personal portfolio in conjunction with Simply Bridal.

Please check out Simply Bridal for Affordable Wedding Dresses.


If you guys can remember that earlier in the year I had a contest to pick the overall favorite wedding dress for me to shoot.  That winning Dress was Marianne.  This dress is so beautiful because it has a vintage vibe for the modern woman.  I LOVE the opening in the back of the dress.  It’s sexy and subtle.

Now our model is Celina.  She is only 5’2.  I love to hire models who aren’t the “Typical” catwalk-tall-afraid-to-eat types.  Celina was a fucking blast to shoot and I can’t wait to work with her more.  She knew instinctively the look I was going for in the photos.  I plan to work with her more in the future to help build her portfolio along with mine.


Of course the make-up was done by the one and only Jazzy Baptiste.  I LOVE his work.  Since this summer Jazzy and I have worked together on a number of projects and I just about love all of them.  I wanted to make Jazzy a book of all the work we have done together this year, but my external drive crashed on me so I won’t be able to do that for a while =(.

As you guys know I don’t engage in too many weddings.  I actually only do weddings by VERY SPECIAL request.  I am just really laid back and go with the flow.  Weddings are hard, intense, and things RARELY go as planned.  In order for my to shoot a wedding I must really vibe with the bride.  She must have a go with the flow attitude.   In about a couple hours I will be shooting a wedding but I wanted to provide you all with my inspiration.  Just so you know… NONE OF THESE PHOTOS belong to me!

I know!

I know! I have been M.I.A since the 10th.  Last two weeks have been MAD crazy.  Having a full time job, a growing business, placing together production shoots, working with vendors, having a social life, and dealing with a sick dog can drag you into 800 different directions.  I’m not sure if you guys are  aware of this or not, but I actually don’t have internet in my apartment.  I made that choice because I didn’t want to be online all the time… and because I was broke… actually more so because I was broke… So when I use the internet it’s in the business office of my building.  However, I think I may change that in another month.

So what have I been doing?

Planning a DIY Youtube vid that involves these…


I purchased by friends book about running our own small business that you can purchase here!  So I have been doing more reading…

The Small Business Manual

I have been trying to cook more at home…

Paleo Lobster

But I keep being social and getting a lot of  this instead…


And of course drinking A LOT of these…


While hanging  out with this guy…


And attending beautiful ceremonies like these…

Selam's Wedding

So now you guys have a TASTE of what I have been doing… if you guys are interested in wanting to know what it takes to place together a successful photography shoot please let me know in the comments below.  I think it would be great for you guys to see so you know all the effort that goes into one.  It’s never as easy as clicking and shooting.  Especially when you have a full time job!

Even though it’s Memorial Day Weekend I still have a full plate!  Cleaning, helping my friend with his resume, social life, and placing together ANOTHER photography shoot!

Wedding Guest Problems

 Asos Wedding Guest Dresses

In little over a month I will be attending a beautiful wedding in Dallas. You know what I love most about weddings… okay… lets be honest, I love champagne the most. The SECOND thing I love about weddings is it gives me a reason to shop!

In yesterday’s post I mentioned that I am in need of a red dress. I really wanted to wear red to my friend’s wedding.

Then I remembered that I ALREADY own a red dress that I have only rocked twice.

I need to get my cost per wear outta that bad boy and wear it again. Plus, the last time I wore it was November of 2011. I think it’s safe to wear it again.

If I didn’t already own a pretty awesome red outfit then I would have picked one of these beauties showcased above. Yes, I know they aren’t all red… but they were still cute!



Which dress would you wear to a wedding?

I know you guys missed my voice!  LOL!

I haven’t made a Youtube video in a year!  Geez!  Has time really flown that fast?  Making videos takes SOOOOOO much time and I found it to be a lot easier  to just take photos and post.  Since I am working my last round for Simply Bridal I thought it would be a good idea to do a video for it.  I want to TRY and more videos at least twice a month.  What’s funny is that I have TONS of footage, i just don’t take the effort into sitting down and putting everything together because life can be so busy.


Below are additional pictures to all the prospect wedding dresses.  Feel free to leave a comment below with your personal favorite for this contest!

I completed this session about two weeks ago in Castle Hill when I went back home to Austin.  Castle Hill is this dope graffiti park that has actually been approved by the City of Austin.  It’s a great place for street artist to come and showcase beautiful art.  I am a LOVER of graffiti art and if you are as well this is a GREAT place to go.

Even though I’m in Dallas I always love a reason to go back home to Austin.  If you are looking for an engagement lifestyle photographer then I’m your girl!
