Delen & Kyle are just as sweet a couple as any I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! And Delen has a heart of gold. Last year when Delen called me wanting to book her wedding, I remember thinking “I am so lucky to have the nicest clients!” And when we headed out to Delaney Vineyards in Grapevine, Texas, I was totally unprepared for how gorgeous she looked in her dress, it was a breathtaking moment! Now that Delen & Kyle are married, I can finally share these images! Enjoy!!

The NYLO has an amazing vibe, and was absolutely perfect for this gorgeous bride! Now that Jessica & Aaron and good-n-married, I get to show off her bridal images! YAY!! Their engagement shoot was at Off The Grid in Dallas, with their wedding at the Cathedral de Guadalupe in Dallas and reception at The Hickory Street Annex also in Dallas. So, it was fitting that her bridal give that same “feel” but a little fluffier. The NYLO was just that! And, add in there was a field right next door, we were in LOVE! Jessica & Aaron have been such an incredible joy to work with, I’m so sad their events we get to photograph are now all over!! I’m hoping there will be babies down the road we will be capturing in photos though. Congratulations Aaron & Jessica, your wedding was beautiful, your bridals are amazing, your engagement was so much fun…and we were so honored to be part of this time in your lives.

Dear Da-da (most frequently said with a high-pitched voice, with the “a” drawn out..da-daaaaaaa),
Where do we begin? You know all those times you sit next to our little toddler beds with your hands folded (and ours folded too, eyes clenched closed) and said sweet bedtime prayers to protect us, protect our room, protect our family? That alone makes us love you to the moon and stars, and back. But there is just so much more. The way you let us twirl into your arms before we lay down to sleep. Or how you can’t stand for us to run out of milk, or how you buy us chocolate chip cookies and stash them (where we always find them) and give into us when we ask persistently (and sweetly). Or how your eyes light up when we come downstairs with our morning faces on. How you sing off key to our favorite song Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star…or how you check just “one more time” in the nursery at church to make sure we’re not standing by ourselves worried. The way you laugh when we laugh or do something clever (and mischevious). How you couldn’t hold a grudge for more than a minute before we’re cuddled up in your arms after some wildly ridiculous stunt we’ve pulled (like writing all over ourselves and the walls with a sharpie). For all these things, you deserve all the “beso’s” in the world, all the hugs our little arms could give, all the blessings your prayers offered up for us could bring. For princess sippy cups, a painted pink bedroom, bendy straws just because we love them, and chocolate cake balls just because we asked…you are the best. In ways we could never really say, but in all the ways we show you by how much we trust you, love you, want to be with you, and laugh for you. You’re our best friend, the “funnest” guy we know, the one who keeps us safe, and the one who kisses mommy and makes us smile. Da-da, you are the best and we love with more than “skorrels” (squirrels) and “ecorns” (acorns) and “licious colate” (delicious chocolate). For the ways you love K-ywle, lee-lee & Say-sen, (Kyle, Kaylee & Kasen) talk with them, hang out with them shooting hoops or playing golf, or just talking about life’s lessons in the garage fixing something…how you take them for treats, help them with homework, pray with them, read the Bible with them, hug and laugh with them, and how you provide for all of us…we get to see your loyalty and dedication to our family. Thank you for loving us and loving mommy, and loving Jesus. Happy Da-da’s day. <3
Forever your Madeleine Magee & Elly Belle

Jessica and Aaron’s engagement shoot at Off The Grid, in Dallas! What an awesome place, and totally fit this couple perfectly!
Jessica and Aaron are getting married at the Cathedral de Guadalupe in Dallas, TX. After their ceremony, the reception will be held at the Hickory Street Annex in Downtown Dallas. We have had a wonderful time getting to know them both, and being able to participate in their special day on Saturday June 15th, 2011!

So yes, I’m behind as usual with my blogging, but I’m hoping to play catch-up in the next few weeks! This engagement session was SO much fun, we ran all over Adriatica in Mckinney TX, and used this vintage bike (which needed a bit of cleaning) to make this even more fun!! Adriatica has so many options for photos, and even though they charge a fee to shoot there, it is worth it when it fits your couple perfectly. The light was perfect, the dogs (their fur-babies) were perfect, and the couple just couldn’t be more adorable!! We are SO looking forward to their wedding next month at Tankersley Gardens in Mount Pleasant, TX!
Engagement photos are so important because they give you time with each other, and besides, they are such a blast!! Thank you Erik & Laura for a fun evening, and we are really excited about all the fun that is coming up next month!
