Joel and Katie got married on New Year's Eve in Denton (check back for those pictures soon!). Just a few days later, I had the great honor of traveling with them (and my beautiful wife, Sarah) to Hawaii for a Trash the Dress / Post-Wedding destination shoot! Sometimes referred to as a…Continue
STOP! Don't sign that contract!
So you found the venue of your dreams, eh? Now you're ready to sit down, sign the contract, and start planning right? WRONG. You do not want to purchase based on emotion and I know most women do this. Heck, I do this. It's the same thing as having 8 million pairs of shoes in your closet you never wear or a bag you've never touched. It is 'just perfect' when your eyes see it but it goes unused because in the end, it just wasn't…
As a wedding photographer, I love looking at other peoples work. It inspires me to stay up to date on different styles and trends that brides are loving. There has been one that I have seen over and over again and that is the warm vintage fade look. You have seem them before. It has the vintage color feel with a slight haze on the photograph.

You know, the less-is-more kind. You want to minimize your impact, eliminate unnecessary access and prevent tabletop trinkets from getting tossed in the garbage afterward (the real destination of most wedding favors.) So how do you satisfy your mission of leaving no footprint, but still…Continue

1 Elegant Event's blog post are usually full of great pictures, but in light of the airing of the Wedding Confidential special that aired January 18, 2013 on 20/20 that pictured wedding professionals as untrustworthy, price gouging, people out to con more money out of engaged couples we decided to do a blog rebuttal. Don't worry it is very nice and very informative.
