Bethany | Spring bridals

Bethany

Bethany & Ryan had a beautiful outdoor wedding a couple of weekends ago (where the sun actually shined) and now that she is married, we can share her beautiful rose garden bridal session! I have never seen blooms this big in my life, not to mention actually been there with a stunning bride to photograph in them so this was a dream come true! Bethany’s dress is literally one of my favorite I’ve ever photographed, SO stunning and unique!

Nora & Jon | Engagements

Nora & Jon

Nora & Jon have been together for 8 years and they are getting married this Sunday at Fair Market! We couldn’t be more thrilled to know these two. I absolutely love this engagement session, we started at their house and followed their nightly summer routine (drinks and books on the patio, making dinner together) and then headed to their neighborhood park a few blocks away and enjoyed the late spring late and each other’s company.

While We Were Away: Portland, OR

This was our third trip to Portland, and by far our favorite yet. We had four shoots while we were in town for five days and got to see some incredible locations. We hiked SO much, like at least 7-8 miles per day, and it was heaven. We saw so many beautiful flowers, hiked to a secret waterfalls, hiked in the Portland woods, visited the exceptionally beautiful Oregon coast for the second time, ate biscuits as much as we possibly could, saw live music, walked on fallen trees that acted as bridges over rushing creeks, saw so many waterfalls, and met some really wonderful kindred spirits (and met up with one of our past bride & grooms that just moved to Portland)! It was such a fulfilling and relaxing week. I always feel so creatively renewed when I’m in Oregon. I do wish we had taken more photos on our trip, but we’ll be back so soon!

You can see more of our travel photography here or here!

We will be back in Portland and Seattle this August & September for weddings, so if you’re interested in a session with us while we’re in town, shoot us an email!

Pamela & Greg | Southern Wedding

Pamela & Greg

What a most perfect Spring day this was. Pam and Greg had a perfect mix of Southern hospitality and classic elegance at their wedding, and it truly could not have been more them. They got married at the Milestone outside of Denton, had the most stunning bright florals done by The Southern Table and Pam had her hair and makeup done by our great friend Natalia Issa.

See their super fun engagements here (think Kate Spade, croquet, and the cutest Pug alive) , and Pam’s classic outdoor bridals here.

Vanessa & Jeff | Portland Engagement Session

Vanessa & Jeff

These guys are troopers. Talon and I took them on a 5 mile hike through the Portland woods, where we all talked about board games, movies and our favorites of the many restaurants our favorite city has to offer. Those trees! The mossy rocks! The ferns! It makes my heart swoon every time.

We will be back in Portland and Seattle this August & September for weddings, so if you’re interested in a session with us while we’re in town, shoot us an email!

Amy & Russell | Newlyweds in Portland

Amy & Russell

The day before we left for Portland, we posted on Instagram that we had one Saturday session spot still open (despite the high chance of rain). Somebody tagged Amy in the post and so we reached out to her via email, scheduled the shoot for Saturday and it was set! Talon and I had been hiking out at Hoyt Arboretum before we scheduled the shoot with Amy and Russell and I was saying, probably every five minutes, “WHY can’t I just have a gorgeous and in love couple to photograph right in this spot?!!?” And, seriously guys, all my Portland session dreams totally came true. I am SO grateful that we got the opportunity to meet these two, I can definitely said we made some Portland friends out of this shoot. Amy & Russell got married in January but wanted a few more photos of themselves in their wedding attire to really celebrate this part of their life! I totally recommend this kind of Newlywed shoot to all of our couples! It’s like getting to relive your wedding day, without the stress and without the to-do lists and without all of the time crunches!

ALSO, I totally made the bouquet guys!!! It was my first one ever.

We will be back in Portland and Seattle this August & September for weddings, so if you’re interested in a session with us while we’re in town, shoot us an email!

Myriam & Hunter Newlywed Session| Arizona wedding photography

Myriam & Hunter

We had this sunrise day-after session scheduled for Myriam & Hunter from the minute they booked us; when time allows for destination weddings, we love doing a session while on location. Now, admittedly, I am really not a morning person usually. I really really really want to be, and I really try to be. But, getting up at 6AM the morning after a late night wedding and only a few hours before a flight back to Dallas for another wedding (on my birthday no less) seemed overwhelming, so I was a little intimidated and worried that I wouldn’t make the shoot as good as I wanted it to be.
But, honestly, if I had a sunrise day-after session in the Arizona mountains every day, I would become a morning person really freaking fast. 

These images bring me so much joy, traveling (well, and sunlight) is really just an endless well of inspiration for Talon and I (I know I say that like every 2.2 seconds but a truer sentence has never escaped from my lips… or keyboard). Myriam decided to wear one of her bridesmaids dresses (you can see their wedding in the post below) from Two Birds Bridesmaids because she wanted more movement than what her wedding dress offered (I love working with fellow creatives!) and it was such a great decision; I love when brides are unafraid to stray from the norm! The air was crisp and chilly, but in a warm, spring-y way. The sun seemed to freeze right behind the mountains which created this perfect glow that seemed to slow time. It was magic. Plus, not only are Myriam & Hunter one of the most attractive couples ever, they were also completely up for anything including climbing boulders. All of the boulders. Well, and scheduling a sunrise session the morning after their wedding.

Immediately after this, I grabbed a venti iced caramel macchiato, we hopped on a plane (edited these images the whole way) and landed in Dallas for another beautiful spring wedding which is coming next week. Best. Birthday. Ever.

Myriam & Hunter | Arizona Wedding Photography

Myriam & Hunter

Myriam & Hunter flew us out to Gilbert, AZ for their elegant, fine art wedding at Villa Siena; it was seriously the most beautiful day I’ve ever experienced in AZ – 80 degrees and not a cloud in the sky!  Traveling and getting to connect with new people and new vendors across the country will forever be one of our favorite parts of Feather & Twine. The next day we all woke up at sunrise for a beautiful day-after/newlywed session (on my birthday!), which we’ll be posting tomorrow!

Liana | Personal Project

In case you missed this post, I have been working on shooting editorially this year as a way to explore some new creative outlets!
One of my long-term goals has always been to mix shooting commercially (look-books, advertisements, editorials) with shooting weddings. In my head, the two worlds mix so seamlessly! This was one of those days/weeks where nothing was really going right. Our original model had to cancel the night before the shoot and Liana gracefully stepped in, while I was on my way to dinner, which caused a 5-minute stop at Urban Outfitter where I quickly ransacked the store grabbing anything that caught my eye. My original hair and makeup artist canceled three days before the shoot causing me to email Meagan (I’m sure she sensed the desperation in my email and responded so fast it was like magic) and ask if she could step in two days before shoot. It was madness for a couple of days but I feel like these images are so calm and serene and it feels like everything fell in to place for a reason, I got to meet and work with two new AMAZING women!
