Drove home from Downtown Houston after photographing Ashley + Mac’s wedding listening to Taylor Swift’s “Today Was A Fairytale” because that’s the only way to describe their wedding day! I knew these two were something special when we photographed their Engagement Photo Shoot a few months ago at Buffalo Bayou in Houston. They are so sweet together and I hardly ever had to tell them how to position for a portrait because the look of love is already so natural for them!! Click here to see their Engagement photos!
Ashley and Mac – – I had so much fun capturing your wedding day and hope that you’re able to relive the joy and love you shared with your closest family and friends through these photos! Enjoy 😀
One of my favorite parts of Ashley + Mac’s wedding day was when they shared their first look! I had the two love birds stand about 25 feet apart with Mac facing away from Ashley. Then, when Ashley was ready Mac turned around and the expression on his face was priceless!! His eyes lit up when he saw his bride walking towards him, it was the sweetest thing ever! Ashley’s dress was stunning – the detailed lace and buttons down the back were my absolute favorite. I also loved that Mac used his hanker-chief to wipe away Ashley’s joyful tears moments after they first saw each other. It was such a sweet moment they shared and I am beyond grateful that they trusted me to capture it for them!
The photos coming up are by far some of my favorite moments from the day because I got to capture all of Ashley + Mac’s closest friends – – this group was so much fun to spend time with and photograph! But seriously, my only regret of the day was not getting to their getting ready location sooner so I could have hung out when all of them more, they were a hoot! Note to my future brides, you may just have me getting there the same time you do when getting ready for hair and makeup – lol – it sounds so cliche but I LOVE the fun, loving, chaotic, and joyful vibes wedding days give off!! 🙂
Ashley + Mac tied the knot in front of their closest family and friends next to The Dandelion Fountain in Buffalo Bayou Park in Houston, Texas. It was the sweetest ceremony, you could feel the love in the crowd!
Introducing, Mr. and Mrs. McCarthy!
Don’t even get me started with how absolutely ADORABLE and special Ashley + Mac’s First Dance was!! I’ve never been apart of a First Dance as JOYFUL as this one! We were under one of the most beautiful trees at Houston’s iconic Dandelion Fountain in Buffalo Bayou Park with all of their closest friends and family members surrounding them – it was magical!
Happy Wedding Day, Ashley + Mac! 😀 I feel honored that you chose me to capture one of the most important and happiest days of your lives. You both were a joy to photograph this special season of you life and I wish you both many years of happiness and love in your marriage!! 😀 Love yall!
P.S. I also really enjoyed working with Julia (wedding planner) and Michael (lead videographer)! I think what made hanging out with them the most fun is that they’re just as passionate and dedicated to their craft as I am. Both of them are so hard working, meticulous, and enthusiastic about their work – I highly recommend them for your wedding planner and videographer!
