Fort Worth Engagement Session at TCU | Anna Lee + Michael |

Winter can get pretty chilly in Texas. But then there are those days where the sun peeks through, a warm breeze blows in from the south, and everything feels just right for a stroll outside with your most favorite person. Anna Lee and Michael had just that kind of day when they did their engagement session at TCU, where they met as college students. It was just the right blend of Fort Worth charm, TCU purple, and even a splash of color at the end. Their adorable dog Jax even joined the session for a few photos!

We love the idea Anna Lee and Michael had to incorporate some fun and playful shots into their session…with the help of some colored powder, of course!! If you’ve never heard of environmentally friendly Holi powder, you must try some. : )

Colored powder + a fun couple = AWESOME.

She brought a special smile to his face, and you knew he was head over heels by the way he stole glances at her. The chemistry we captured on their engagement session was what we first noticed about them. Next it was their classical approach to life, and their attention to each other. They were in love, and you couldn’t have planned a more perfect match for each other.

Meet Elizabeth and Justin.

We talked about it on the way home from their engagement session. We knew their wedding would be amazing. Timeless, classical, elegant, and romantic…when I saw the proofs from their wedding all together for the first time, I realized that the dream wedding they’d envisioned had come true. It was a perfect celebration of romance and elegance. A wedding that was truly timeless and classical… just like Elizabeth and Justin’s love.

The day started at the gorgeous Adolphus Hotel.

We hope this gorgeous day, when you were surrounded by everyone who loves y’all, is just a glimpse of how magical your future together will be. Best wishes as you start your journey as husband and wife!

Cheers,

Matt and Ivy

Story from the Bride:

Day before the wedding: We rented a 15-passanger van.  Justin drove some of out-of-town family to the Bishop Arts district to have authentic Texas bbq and pie.  They enjoyed it so much, some went back again before they flew home.  Elizabeth and Justin’s wedding day: On the morning of the wedding, Justin played golf with a group, including Elizabeth’s Dad.  Elizabeth, the bridesmaids, and her Mom spent the day getting ready/watching Aggie football.  After this, we were overjoyed to see that our hopes and planning for an elegant wedding had come off without a hitch.  Our favorite splurges included having a live band.  Justin’s favorite part of the day was saying “I do”.  Elizabeth’s favorite part of the day was getting to marry Justin, and sharing that experience with some of our closest friends and family.
