Rock the Dress Photoshoot

Once upon a time I received a text from a blogger love muffin named Shalyn. While I don't remember the exact dialogue, I do remember it had something to do with her wanting to build her wedding portfolio, me in my wedding dress, Beau in his suit and her taking pictures of us. Quicker than the speed of light I {obviously} agreed. {Per any man's usual demeanor, Beau was less than thrilled to know we'd be taking more wedding photos. Ha!}

After many, many conflicts in our schedules, we finally set a date and a place. We would be heading to my favorite place in this entire world, the Frio River {a place I've literally DREAMED of taking wedding photos at for just about my entire life} and would have our very own wedding photo shoot. 

Dream come true?
Yes.

(I should also mention this would be the first time ever I'd be meeting Shalyn and her husband, the infamous DDHP, so to say I was beyond excited would be the understatement of the year! Read about the entire weekend here.)

Well...lo and behold...that little fancypants Shay has the photoshoot up on her blog and for the first time EVER, I got to see the pictures from that day...

(Yes-that would be Beau lacing up my dress)   :)


Y'all.
I have no words.
 


If I had it to do all over again...there's no doubt Shalyn would be snapping my wedding day. I've never met someone so creative, so fun, so talented and so thoughtful as Shalyn. Coming from someone who's taken wedding photos 3 {yes, THREE...read here and here} times now, she made it so non-awkward, non-stressful and so much fun! Winning!

 
A girl who once cried hysterically over her wedding photos for days on end, now has something to treasure forever...


So thank you, Shalyn, for giving me this opportunity, for making this photoshoot SO much fun, for giving us pictures that we'll be proud to show our grandkids one day and for overall, being such a kind, generous and loving friend!!


(&& thank you, Beau, for putting up with yet another wedding photoshoot. You rock my socks!)

  10. I've commented on Shay's blog AND on Twitter - but these photos are just STUNNING. You can honestly see the love between you and Beau. I've been debating doing another wedding sesh, because I'm not in love with mine. This just put me over the edge! Decision made.
