Lightbox Photography Dallas » Lightbox Photography captures fresh, elegant, and timeless photos of your wedding day.

I feel like I’ve been looking forward to Christmas all year! I absolutely love my job, but the call of my comfy couch, a warm blanket and hot cocoa were just irresistible.  This was a busy year for both me and my husband, which means that family time was extra precious and when we both finally got to have a long stretch of time off for Christmas this year, we’ve really been soaking it up. I could not have planned a more perfect Christmas with family and gifts, lights, good food and to top it off, SNOW!!! YES, SNOW! IN DALLAS, TX! I felt like a little kid I was so giddy for a White Christmas! It was beautiful and magical.:)We even put my camera up on a tripod with the self-timer and got a family photo! So, of course this means I feel like I’m officially an awesome photographer. I took a photo of me and my family with me IN it and it actually looked pretty great! Like a boss. 😉

This Christmas was our most fun yet with our little guy. He’s 3 and a half and finally old enough to really have fun with Christmas and he was just adorable. He asked Santa for a scooter and Mommy and Daddy for a leaf blower. I’ve never seen a child so happy and content.:)I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful little family. I hope you had a wonderful, magical, full Christmas too.:)

    Kim - Great pictures! :) What a beautiful Christmas!ReplyCancel

If I think about my favorite place to do any photo shoot, it’s always somewhere very natural, sunny and just simply beautiful. These bridals are all of those things! I’m a simple girl. I like simple. I think that’s where beauty lies. In the everyday, natural moments, the wide open field untouched by a lawn mower or pruning, just allowed to BE. As I read this (checking for spelling/grammar errors) I’m thinking about how my couples are, just like these words I just typed. They are natural, they allow each other to just BE and love who the other is when they are just being them. That’s what makes me so lucky. Taking beautiful photos is invigorating and I LOVE that, but what makes it so rich for me is working with people who GET what’s really important. Ahhhhh,:)

Shea’s bridals embody all of that, shot at Cedar Hill State Park on a beautiful day with all that simple beauty and rustic feeling. She was so awesome. Laid back, up for anything, even standing in the middle of wild flowers in her dress:)I could not ask for a more awesome girl to work with:)

LuAnne and Roger’s wedding was so beautiful and it was such an honor to be part of this wedding. They got married in her parents back yard, which is just gorgeous! All of their fall decorations were perfect and LuAnne was such a stunning bride.They had a small, intimate ceremony and the personal touch of it being at her parent’s home was perfect. LuAnne and Roger were so obviously in love and all of their sweet glances and each other made the day even more beautiful.

Their family was so welcoming and friendly. Her parents even gave up their seat at dinner for me and my assistant!! I was so touched by their sweet gesture! These are just true Southern, warm people who would genuinely go out of their way to make someone else comfortable. What a wonderful family and I am so so glad I had the chance to work with them!

    Chelsea McGowan - A few things:
    1) Your details are killer here. KILL.ER. Seriously stunning.
    2) I’ve shot that gown four times now, and I never get tired of it. So beautiful.
    3) The in-between moments in this post are my favorites. The little breaths. You captured the truth of their wedding day splendidly.
    Well done Teresa, and congrats to the happy couple!ReplyCancel

    nikki - SO gorgeous! I love all their details… What a gorgeous backdrop for a lovely wedding!ReplyCancel

I never get tired of working with awesome people. It’s what I like most about my business. I’ve been very blessed that every couple I work with has been ideal for me. Everyone is not as lucky as me.  Being able to do what I love AND do it for amazingly wonderful people is a true blessing.

Melanie and Justin came to me from Justin’s brother and wife, whose wedding I photographed last year. They were such a wonderful couple to work with and such a fun, easy going and welcoming family that when I heard from Melanie, I was beyond giddy to work with all of them again! It doesn’t hurt one little bit either that Melanie and Justin are absolutely stunning!! Melanie, like most of my brides, is very laid back and has an easy, effortless style. She’s not fussy over little things like hair, make-up and clothes, she keeps it simple, she’s a natural beauty. So, I knew something very natural and beautiful would be perfect as a setting for their engagement photos. We started the shoot in Downtown Grapevine and moved over to Rockledge Park at Grapevine Lake. The rock cliffs and shoreline were the perfect backdrop for this naturally gorgeous couple.

I couldn’t be more happy with how everything turned out and I can’t wait for this wedding!!!
