OUR DEAR FRIENDS
My how the time flies! This wedding features two of our very best friends in the world. At the time we met them, Caroline and I weren't married yet, had just started going to Shoreline City (then Shoreline Dallas) and these two lovebirds were trying to plan a wedding in practically two months!
Thankfully, they're the most easy-going, cool people around. But what an answer to prayer when we met them in our pre-marital class and just happen to tell them we're wedding photographers. I remember Aubrey telling us what her first thought was, "Oh that's nice. (but yeah, everyone is a 'photographer' these days)."
A couple hours after meeting them we get a text from Tyler & Aubrey telling us how much they loved our work and how honored they would be for us to be their photographers for their wedding day! We were stoked! Not only did we have new friends, but now we're getting to shoot their wedding, too!
Y'all, there's nothing we love more in the world than getting to spend one of the most important and joyful days in life with a couple and walking away from the day knowing we've made lifelong friends.
Aubrey has one of the most genuine and gentle personalities, and truly radiates love from the inside out. We love this picture of her with the soft, natural light and her calm, peaceful expression. It made for the perfect moment before their first look.
The vow books were custom-made and absolutely beautiful. Totally photo-worthy! Their handwritten vows were exchanged privately first, letting the other read these most sacred words before expressing them publicly in front of their closest friends and family.
Can we talk about the absolutely stunning job Betsy Baldwin did of turning this rooftop in downtown Dallas into a dreamy, unique ceremony space? Tyler & Aubrey wanted their attendees to encircle them, signifying how they expect those who love and support them to remain doing just that throughout the rest of their lives. Betsy took their minimalist vision and executed flawlessly with greenery, pastel florals, and ivory candles.
Did we mention we love first looks? What a special time between a bride and groom!
The light in the early evening in downtown, with sunbeams bouncing off tall glass buildings, provided the perfect backdrop for some fun, intimate portraits of the bride and groom.
We're most proud of the above portrait! Tyler and Aubrey chose to print this as a large portrait and hang in their apartment.
