It is said that everything in Texas is bigger… Jenny & Blake’s wedding was no exception. Their love and style is seen throughout their wedding day, with a strong mix of eclectic flair, including a surprise flash mob which was choreographed by the bride, a former Dallas Mavericks Dancer and Director & Choreographer for the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Dancers.

Bride & Groom: Jenny & Blake

Location: Dallas, Texas

Most memorable aspect of this shoot: The bride is a choreographer and most of the bridal party and female guests where all either former or current Mavericks dancers, Rhythm & Blues Dancers or Dallas cowboy cheerleaders. There was a moment right after the cake cutting where a friend walks out like he is a waiter with plastic dishes. Another girl crashes into him and there was a big commotion and then the band kicked in and a flash mob broke out that Jenny had choreographed- all the dancers in the audience came out and rocked the floor… it was a great moment

Style: There are moments that you capture in a photo journalistic way but the majority of the day was spent with intentional shooting. We wanted to capture the beauty of their day in an intentional artistic and creative way that didn’t leave moments that we knew were important to “chance.”

The most important thing to us is light over location; find beautiful light. Highlight special connections like a bride and father’s love for her. Something that you can appreciate today, in ten years you love and in 30 if he was to pass away, you cherish it, not to mention the legacy it provides your daughters one day about what a father’s love looks like. It’s a legacy.

For the groom, we wanted him to be shot like we would want to be shot ourselves. Like a cool guy, James Bond-esque with a little mystery.

Inspiration: In our photography world we have many friends who are our iron sharpening iron…for weddings there’s Luke’s wedding photographer “Jerry Ghionis” and another dear friend of ours “Mike Colon.” Our biggest inspiration comes from shooting together as a father and son-it’s a special opportunity to share in this moment in life together and create something larger than ourselves. Luke’s beautiful wife Bethany and the new life they are creating together and our families inspire us. But the ultimate creativity and inspiration comes from our relationship with our Heavenly Father.
