Kyla's Bridal /Grapevine Texas

Monday, January 25, 2010

This gorgeous winter bride from Colorado just got married at her parents home in Euless Texas.
We were lucky to be able to do her bridals over the holidays in November. Downtown Grapevine is close by and has some the perfect locations- a brick alley way, an old theatre and a train station!
The special tattoo on her foot goes with the one her fiancee Josh has on his arm- both are big fans of children's books and the author Shel Silversteins book " The Giving Tree" ( which symbolizes his close relationship for his mother).
Kyla's cousin Lesley designed the wedding invitation and her tattoo - a lightbulb wrapped around a tree. Kyla said
"I got it when I turned 18 and I fell in love with the idea of creation, what God has given us as his creation of the world, and as an artist, the desire I constantly have to be inventive and create for the rest of my life....whether it's little things or big things. "
Their wedding was just as amazing, so many DIY details to come soon!

katie and kevin engaged!

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

The idea of the perfect day for Katie and Kevin is hanging out Waterloo, eating at Whole Foods, browsing for books at Bookpeople or having a picnic at Mount Bonnell.
The two met at while studying photography at RIT in Rochester but now call Austin home.
Music as well as photography is very important to them,for their engagement book they wanted to use their favorite songs that will be a part of the wedding.
I thought it would be cute to use cartoon bubbles to add the type!
Their wedding in March at the Winfield Inn will be just as fun!

and with our chickens

I'm experimenting with these new Vintage style borders from Design Aglow. I'm making an old school album on black pages with photo corners.

I did this portrait before the holidays- One of our friends from school and her sister.
We've been Buda Elementary parents for over 6 years and this year will be our last-So bittersweet - our babies are off to Middle School next year!
