I recently visited Fort Worth and while I was there I shot a bridal at the wedding venue known as "The Castle" for rather obvious reasons.

This venue has gorgeous doors (although the windows were lacking a bit. Note to developers, I am here and opinionated if you would like to consult with a photographer before building a wedding venue. ;P) But back to the doors.... They were truly gorgeous!

Isn't her dress lovely? It's very unique and I felt fit the setting.

This is my favorite image from the day. If you click on the picture you can see a larger version which shows the lace details better.

After The Castle, we went to the Dallas Arboretum. I had never been to the Arboretum before and was delighted to have a reason to visit; it truely is a lovely garden. The shoot itself ran very long and it was really hot, but the (future) bride was very patient and her parents were perfect photo-assistants, so we got some really cool shots from this location.

This was one of the last shots of the day. It was about 1:30 and in full sun. This photo follows none of the technical rules but I like it anyway.

Yeah, it's been rough, but my family has had a huge amount of prayer and support, so we're doing well despite the circumstances. I'll have to check out "A Grief Observed", thanks!

Do you live in Texas? The Dallas arboretum is a wonderful place! I got to shoot there for fun about a year ago. What're the professional photography fees like?

You sister must be very cool! ;-)

Oh yes, and these pictures are quite stunning! Love the lace detail and natural framing you used!
