Hi there! I'm Ivy. I am incredibly fortunate to have married my best friend! Matt and I first started talking in a chemistry lab 10 years ago (yes, the 'chemistry' was there from the start!), and before long I was in love with this cute guy who was a science TA. We built a business together while we were dating, then he popped the question, I said YES, and YES!, and our story got started. Now we've been married 8 years, and have a wonderful baby boy (who we're absolutely crazy about!) and two high-energy morkie pups. Faith and family are the most important things in our lives, and we're so thankful to have a business that we love and enjoy.
Photography, art, and fashion are passions of mine. I love bringing out that gorgeous side of you! If you look through our work, you'll see that we chase beautiful light, capture emotions, and channel the fashion-forward side of our clients. Our typical bride loves fashion, romance, and most of all, her groom! Photography is a priority for our clients and they work with us to ensure that the heart and soul of their love stories are captured through the lens. We have wonderful resources for our couples and a talented staff that works with them along the journey of wedding photography.
For me, capturing each facet of a couple, from how they interact to the unique things that they love about each other, is what helps to document their story! I love to get to know you, and keep in touch with you long past your wedding date. Many couples from years ago are now close friends, and we are honored to have been able to document new milestones for our couples through the years.
I started doing photography over 15 years ago. I've been blessed to travel and do photojournalism for remote people groups and humanitarian missions, and receive formal photography training. Matt's background is in commercial and fashion photography. After meeting Matt, and creating our studio, we started catering to a very special clientele. Our brides and grooms are remarkable! Their love for each other is contagious, their weddings are an inspiration to other brides, and they make it a joy to be their personal photographer.
To see more of our work and find out more about our story, feel free to explore more here or head over to the blog. You can also see recent work in some of my favorite magazines, including VOGUE, D Weddings, Modern Luxury Weddings and more, and online, in leading wedding blogs such as Southern Weddings, Ruffled, and Style Me Pretty.
We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our family of Ivy Weddings bride and grooms! Please drop me a line and tell me more about your love story, or schedule an appointment at our luxury downtown Dallas studio. I can't wait to meet you!
