11 Tips for No-Stress Engagement Photography

Love is in the air—you’re engaged and you’ve decided to hire a Dallas engagement photographer. Whether the portraits are for save-the-date cards, invites, or to display on your website, this is the time to simply be yourself—in the moment, doing what you naturally do when you’re with your sweetheart.

Yes, you’ll receive subtle direction from the engagement photographer, but this is your love story; told through your eye contact, the way you touch each other, in your smile and those quirky moments that make you laugh uncontrollably.  

The engagement photography session is all about capturing expressions of your love and stress is not invited to the party. So, here are 11 tips for No Stress Engagement Photography.

Emotion filled Dallas Engagement Photographer

1.  If you follow any tip on this list, this first tip is huge and non-negotiable. Hiring an engagement photographer who is personable, creative and fun can make all the difference in no-stress engagement photography and stress-filled engagement photography.

You should have a professional yet warm connection with your engagement photographer. If you feel uncomfortable, awkward or nervous, that discomfort will show up in your body language and in your facial expressions. Take some time to search for the best in Dallas engagement photography. This is a special day for you and your fiancé and you’ll have these portraits for a lifetime.

2.  Choose a theme and share your vision with your engagement photographer. Yes, the photographer is the creative master, but having some knowledge of your love story helps the photographer capture the best poses and props to showcase the perfect engagement story book.

3.  Select attire that is comfortable and that complements the other at least 2-3 weeks in advance. The last thing you want is to start your photography session with regret over a last minute, and less flattering purchase. That will certainly bring on the stress.

4.  We’re in awe of the landmarks we’ve seen in Dallas engagement photography, but consider choosing a location that has special meaning to your love story. Being in a familiar environment will help you open up and allow your emotions to flow naturally.

5.  Come prepared to have fun! Remember, your engagement photography is a unique, less formal and playful reflection of your bond and friendship. Soak up the beauty of this special and unrushed time with your sweetheart.

6.  Trust your engagement photographer. Your photographer is the expert. He or she knows how to capture the ideal shots, at the right time and from the most flattering angles. They are keenly aware of appropriate hand placement and poses.

7.  No amount of editing can cover the effects of feeling tired and sleep deprived. So, get a good night sleep. Rest your mind and body so you’re looking and feeling your best for your engagement photography session.

8.  Eat a light breakfast so you’re not feeling weighed down or bloated. It’s better to have not eaten enough than to over eat right before your photo shoot.

9.  Breathe. Sounds obvious, but when you’re mindful of your breathing it will help you relax and release any tension in your body, which can show up in your photos.

10.  Communicate with your engagement photographer. If there’s a special pose or backdrop that you want to capture, share it with your photographer. Your photographer will advise the best approach and you’ll feel more invested in the session knowing your idea was considered or used.

11.  Here’s a simple and effective approach to no-stress engagement photography. Workout together at the gym or go for a brisk run or walk the morning of your shoot. The release of endorphins will have you feeling confident, connected, and maybe a little frisky—the perfect ingredients for no-stress engagement photography.

Congratulations on your engagement! I hope these tips have been helpful. Remember, relax, breathe, and enjoy every moment. As you begin your search for Dallas engagement photographers, choose an engagement photographer who is personable, creative and fun. Cheers!

Better posing for your wedding pictures - Directed Flow Posing


Better Posing For Wedding = Better Wedding Photos

Correct and flattering posing in wedding photography is paramount for successful and attractive wedding photos.

Pease don't tell us that you don't like posed photos, what you don't like is awkward and unflattering photos due to no posing directions or straight out bad posing. Even with the most flattering location, light and angle, direct instructions must be given to the wedding couple. You don't have to be a professional model to improve your photos with better posing from a professional wedding photographer!

But first, let's talk what posing is and most importantly what "good posing " is. For our intentions, the traditional definition of posing is to place the body in a suitable position or attitude for a picture, tableau, or the like, for an artist such a wedding photographer or painter.

At IGOR Photography we don't usually use "traditional posing", since we believe that it can make you look too static and unnatural.

Posing doesn't have to be a static held position, over the top dramatic body position or an unnatural way to stand that makes you feel awkward and uncomfortable.

Directed Flow Posing

A lot of people have a negative idea and feeling about what posing is and feels like. Maybe because what they seen models do on TV, or because of their parents contrived wedding album pictures or due to uncomfortable high school yearbook picture sittings. We all have seen or experience this, so it's understandable that we feel some resistance to being posed in front of a camera.

At IGOR Photography we use a technique that we call " directed flow posing", we direct the subject into a starting pose, and make small adjustments one at the time after that, it's a constant flow, where we encourage subject interaction and movement, the subtle variation from shot to shot is what makes it natural looking, relaxed and more fun.

It's a very natural and organic way of posing, we like to make it fun and relaxed, and it's shows in our photos. We use very subtle directions and adjustments, we let the subject to move and interact with each other, creating a more intimate and organic feeling.

Let's talk about how you can take some of our posing techniques for better posing for wedding photos and make your next photography session or wedding photos much better.

Use the KISS principle - "Keep it simple stupid"

Don't try to do to much with your posing, less is often more when it comes to posing for wedding pictures.

Start with your Feet

Posing starts with the feet. For the bride's posing. Plant one foot slightly in front of the other,  bend the front knee, point your toe to the camera and shift your weight on your back leg and away from the camera. This achieves the classic hourglass silhouette.

For the groom is better to face the camera more or less straight towards the camera and with the feet slightly apart.

"Bend it like Beckham"

Keep the elbows bent and slightly way from the body, this forms a small gap that shows the waistline, the s-curve and slim downs the body. Most of the joints in the body should have a slight bend, it looks softer and more relaxed that way.

Men can keep their arms slightly bent against their body.

Let's Twist it

For the bride, turn your body about 45 degrees away from the camera and put the arm closest to the camera on your hip or slightly bent next to your body. This will make you look slimmer, curvier and it will ensure that the arm will not get flatted against your body.

Men can keep the feet slightly positioned away from the camera and turn their upper body squared against the camera to acentuate broad shoulders and a smaller waist.

Straighten the Spine = Good Posture

You mother probably always said to you as a child, "straighten your back honey", and she was so right. Standing up straight really does make a difference for the health of your back and your physical appearance. Not only will it make you look taller, but it will also give you a look of strength and confidence, which is naturally attractive to both genders.

Be asymmetrical

Bend your joints, dip one shoulder or hip, make sure that your arms are at different heights, or bend one leg a little more than the other.

Remember your hands

Try to keep your hands open and relaxed. it's often best to show the side of your hand. You can also grab a part of your dress or suit with your hands to make it feel and look relaxed. Men can keep their hands in their pockets or hold the jacket or cuffs. 

When the couple is engaging each other its important that hands are either touching each other or holding on into each other. Show intimacy!

Intimacy and "directed flow posing".


Use your tongue

This is a great and weird trick, but it works very well. It might feel strange, but by pressing your tongue on the roof of your mouth while smiling is a great way to help avoid the unflattering double chin, as it elongates your neck and your jawline.

Pull your ears forward

This bring brings the chin forward to create a strong jawline and also minimizes double chin.

Add some movement & Interaction

In directed flow posing we always encourage the subjects to talk and laugh to each other about anything in order to get more emotional and organic photos. We also like to have the couples and wedding party walk, dance and move to create more dynamic lively wedding photos.

Don’t be a follower

In order to get some interesting and great group shots its best to not have the group do the same thing, since it's often looks boring that way, everyone is of different heights and shapes, and it often looks like a forced mishmash" of people. It's better to have everyone stand slightly different.

Don't say cheese

Smiling and looking good in photos is often not that easy as it seems. If you don't smile you risk to look bored or angry, but if you smile to much you often look silly instead. It's best to smile in a relaxed and natural way without overdoing it.

When you smile to much on purpose you face get's tense, you show to much teeth, your eyes squint and you wrinkle up, it's not the look that you want! The key is to smile naturally and in moderation.

I hope that you have learned a few posing techniques and that you realize that posing doesn't have to be awkward, that instead it's a crucial ingredient in obtaining stunning wedding pictures.

IGOR Photography's "Directed Flow Posing" system is a surefire way to obtain those organic and natural looking wedding pictures that we are known for. Being able to quickly come up with a variety of poses that suits the couple and the occasion is an important skill that Dallas wedding photographers develop through practice and experience.

Great and effective posing is an art form that takes a lot of time to master. Make sure that you hire a wedding photographer that has the right posing skills to make you look fantastic!







Proposal Photography at the Enchant Christmas Maze


I love proposal photography, there are always so many raw emotions at display and I really enjoy the anticipation, the planning for the perfect capture and the big surprise. This past Christmas I got the privilege to photograph a beautiful proposal between Michelle and Matt at the perfect Christmas location; The Enchant Christmas Light Maze in Arlington.

Matt contacted me a few weeks before Christmas to plan the shoot, we went through the game plan and agreed to scout out the event in advance in order to find out the best spot for the proposal to take place.

Most proposal photography that I do are shot in true "paparazzi style", the fiancee never knows that there is a photographer until the actual proposal has been made, then I jump into the action and reveal myself and get some close ups shots of the couple, in this occasion I also shot a short portrait session around the Christmas Maze.

This proposal was very fun but presented us with some challenges that we had to take into consideration. It was a cold day before Christmas eve and the event was completely full with people. Another challenge was the proposal shoot had to take place at night, and I didn't want to start using the flash to early and risk to compromise the surprise factor.

But with careful planning, the right photo gear, selection of location and the right timing we got the perfect proposal photos that we are known for at IGOR Photography.

The proposal moment:Did she say yes?, It's pretty safe to say that she did judging by her smile from ear to ear!

Michelle was so surprised and her face lit up in awe and happiness when Matt kneel down, her smile was priceless and the joy and love was at full display. These are the kind of moments that I live for, it makes me so happy to witness and it makes me believe in goodness and in humankind. I always get very emotional and my heart beats fast. It's so exciting!

I continued to shoot through Michelle and Matt's reactions, smiles and laughter. After the proposal, Michelle and Matt walked through the maze, got some hot chocolate in the cold, and I continued to take candid photos of them as they were walking and interacting. We also did a few posed photos when I saw a great backdrop. 

It was the perfect proposal photo session, so much fun and we got some amazing looking photos!

I wish more people would hire a professional proposal photographer in Dallas and Fort Worth, it's such a joyful and important moment to capture properly. 

Contact us today so we can chat about how we can get you unique paparazzi style proposal photos!

"Sin City" a city full of life, energy and with some amazing backdrops for the type of wedding photography that we like to capture. Las Vegas is a perfect complement to our emotional and artistic style of wedding photography.

On this trip to Las Vegas we mainly shot at the famous Las Vegas Strip, both during the day and night, and we captured the beautiful couple in the middle of all the buzzing midday city activities, we wanted to include the walking tourists on the stripe and some famous landmarks such as The Bellagio Hotel and Casino.

This was such a enjoyable shoot, our beautiful couple Charm and Andrey were having a lot of fun at the different locations that we walked to during the photos session, we did a combination of some traditional posed portraits with some stunning architecture and Casinos as a backdrop, and also some lifestyle action shots as they were interacting with each other and enjoying a walk at the famous Las Vegas Strip. It was a very organic and natural way of shooting a bride and groom session, with no awkward or forced posing, this is how we shoot at IGOR Photography.

We can not get enough of one of our favorite venues here in Fort Worth, Texas, it is the Marty Leonard Lena Hope Chapel, this Chapel is definitely a sculpted masterpiece with it's genius architecture, high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows that bring the outdoors and light to indoor.

Marty Leonard Chapel Wedding Photography

Our Bride and Groom Julie & Stanley came to us with their hearts wide and mind open. They love IGOR wedding photography for it's creative takes, angles and lighting. Stanley especially enjoyed the way we played with lines and Julie appreciated that we could showcase romance, love and passion while still being classy and traditional.

You may remember this couple from their beautiful modern engagement session in The Arts District in Dallas, which incorporated their cute fur babies :)

The preparation and getting ready shots were done at the classy Omni Hotel in downtown Fort Worth.

The wedding reception was held at the lovely Historic 512, also known as the YWCA, first founded in 1907, the now wedding venue provides lovely vintage architecture and furniture for your wedding reception, and a two story building with ample space to have a dance floor and separate location for photo booth , which IGOR wedding photography also provides also with custom Instagram cut outs and props !


This wedding was an extremely emotional wedding as we had grown close to our clients, and to see our groom express his love for his beautiful wife was a sight to see! This wedding was also filled with funny moments such as the MacGregor and Mayweather fight that the groom had specifically begged his bride if he could use one of the reception tables to broadcast the fight. At one point during the night, the wedding attendees gathered around a table to watch the fight!

Stay tuned for more beautiful Images from our recent trip to Las Vegas & upcoming weddings.

Beauty and the Boudoir



It's funny when Igor and I decided to branch out into "Boudoir" photography, I don't think either of us really knew the definition. Most people associate these type of photography session with a woman getting all dolled up and wearing sexy little pieces of lingerie that leave little to the imagination.

Although, that is what most of the Boudoir shoots consist of :) We wanted to kind of embody the actual meaning of the word and add some French flair. Boudoir is a French derived word, usually referring to a woman's private sitting room.

There was a man by the name of Marquis de Sade between 1740-1814 who helped develop a reputation to go along with this room in his literary pieces. He talks of small rooms dedicated to the private talk of women, where gossip, scandalous reputations of others and frolicking partakes.

What better way to shoot a Boudoir then to book a session in New Orleans! We choose to shoot the following Boudoir session in the amazing Le Pavillon Hotel.

Bridal boudoir photography, the bride before the shoot, rading a bridal magazine!

Our Bride Rachel is a firecracker who gave us explicit permission to reveal these pictures. She told us " I want every woman to get the opportunity to see how beautiful you made me look and feel during the shoot!".

IGOR wedding photography creates fine art Boudoir session tailored to your comfort, body and style. We can either catch some of the natural light to create a soft serene look, or we can add edgy artificial light to sculpt a women's beautiful curves at night, but wait , don't go yet. Drink some champagne and dim the lights to create Imagery your husband to be won't forget.

Our Boudoir sessions are meant to celebrate your beauty no matter the age or body type. You don't have to be getting married to reserve your session with IGOR wedding photography. Let's capture the sensuality, accentuate curves and show your personality. It's a special treat to your self, from you to you. We are just there to make it happen!




Wildwood Inn Wedding in Denton, Texas


We're revisiting our lovely couple Jennifer and Dennis or as we like to call them Jenny and Denny. Too catchy not too right? We started with their romantic, with a touch of western engagement session in downtown Fort Worth at the Stockyards. You also saw Jennifer in her beautiful wedding dress, barefoot and blissful during her bridals earlier this year.

Now we get to share the beginning of next chapter with you, their beautiful wedding in Denton, TX at the elegant and European inspired The Wildwood Inn.

Jenny and Denny met at a rugby game that Denny was not formally invited too and it was history after that! Their wedding was romantic, and classic while still laid back in a garden setting at the beautiful wedding venue, The Wildwood Inn in Denton. 

We've been to the Wildwood Inn several times and in true Igor wedding photography fashion we like to create something romantic and new each time.


We captured a lot of emotional moments at this wedding, our favorites were when Jenny's dad first saw her after getting ready, we also got some great candid moments of Jenny taking a moment to herself before walking down the aisle.

We always save the best for last, so we stole a few moments from Jenny and her new husband during the reception in order to get some signature night portraits of them in front of the gorgeous venue.

IGOR wedding Photography travels to New Orleans


We didn't recently travel from hometown Dallas, Texas to New Orleans, Louisiana just for the Crawfish, Gumbo and Oysters... Okay, maybe we did! But we also came for the culture, the unique atmosphere and that N'awlins feel, whenever we get an opportunity to shoot a bride or a wedding couple in Nola, we don't hesitate to catch a flight and create some amazing New Orleans wedding photography. New Orleans provided a variety of scenery with it's eclectic residents, the beautiful willow trees, massive oak trees and the southern French charm. We can't wait to our next New Orleans wedding or engagement/bridal shoot to explore more of what New Orleans and create some fantastic wedding photography for our clients.

Before leaving our hotel, the grand Le Pavillion, located on Poydras St., in the heart of everything wonderful about New Orleans we had access to Bourbon St, and the French Quarter within a few minutes of walking ! We had decided to map a game plan of some places or things that are iconic to New Orleans that we wanted to put our signature wedding twist on.

For all our images featured, IGOR wedding photography took a chance and created wedding magic! We didn't plan to stumble on a community of cyclist with decorative bikes or a jazz band for our couple to slow dance too. But we were there for the moments! Just as we are at every wedding IGOR wedding photography are invited to, we strive to be more then just the best New Orleans wedding photographers, we want to provide amazing wedding photos all over the world.

A must have shot for our New Orleans wedding photography was the iconic Streetcars, a common way for the locals to commute and for tourists as well ! It is scenic and comforting to watch the people around you as you see this lively city wiz past you. It was also a great way for us to spot some restaurants we wanted to try later on! We had the perfect bride and groom, all we needed was the perfect romantic moment. IGOR photography uses a journalistic approach when capturing engagement and bridal session and wedding day moments. We us an organic approach with subtle movements to create the perfect wedding Imagery, we are always looking for emotions and joyful moments.

Another location that we found of interest was the majestic City Park in New Orleans, where we shot a beautiful bridal session in the morning sunrise.

It was a beautiful lush park with moss covered oak trees that seem to hold a million years of stories. To see these trees in person, would leave you thinking " If only trees could talk!" it is also a perfect park to host a small intimate wedding, or a engagement session, we could have easily spent all day there.

IGOR photography chose City Park of New Orleans for it's vegetation and the trees that make up so much of the swamp and lake areas in New Orleans, we also chose this park due to a bridge we had found while doing some research prior. It's a steep arched bridge with rounded pebbles to complete it's design. It was a stunning accompaniment to our Naturally beautiful bride and her stunning  wedding gown.

Although, we chose many great locations to shoot while in New Orleans, there is one location we can not go with out mentioning, The French Antique shop, we agreed this one shot was epic, ( Okay and maybe also the delicious Crawfish at The Three Legged dog). The beautiful shop that was so gracious enough to let us use their charming place, a French Antique Shop, established in 1939 with it's otherworldly elegance. The lights, the chandeliers, everything just makes you want to buy the whole store and furnish your entire home!

An elegant wedding photo in a stunning French Antique Shop at the French Quarter

It was enough to have a stunning bride and handsome groom, but to be blessed with a stunning location that was saturated with everything a New Orleans bride could ask for was perfection. This classic little gem was tucked away on Royal St., when we passed it we had to double back and try our luck with asking if we could snap a few pictures, luckily for us they were gracious host, very accommodating and kind!

IGOR wedding photography thanks the entire city of New Orleans for letting us capture the essence of New Orleans wedding photography and to trek through your playground. We have no doubt we will be back to create more artistic wedding photos and shuck some more oysters!

Contact us today for your destination wedding in New Orleans, or to the Bahamas, and back to Texas. IGOR wedding photography provides you with emotional and timeless wedding imagery to last you a lifetime.

1899 FarmHouse wedding Venue, Princeton, TX. Kelly & Phillip


We enjoyed the wedding of our lovely couple Kelly & Phillip at the historic 1899 Farmhouse wedding venue so much. They welcomed us and really made us feel like family, we go over and beyond for all of our wedding clients.

You need wedding photographers who will run with you, climb with you, and explore with you! Igor wedding photography is the best choice for creative wedding photography among all the Dallas & Fort Worth wedding photographers. I think that this Princeton wedding shows the variety of wedding portraits and candid shots that we always get at our weddings.

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
– Maya Angelou

Kelly & Phillip knew they had chosen the best Fort Worth wedding photographers when we shared a genuine interest in the initial consultation about their personal story and allotment of time we needed to create awesome wedding imagery.
In each consultation, Igor and I, try to explain the importance of giving us enough time to help us capture magical moments. Our clients have patience and trust in us that they will receive wedding photos that are fine wedding art from one of the absolute best wedding photographers in Fort Worth.
Kelly & Phillip held their wedding at the charming and folksy 1899 Farmhouse wedding and event center in Princeton, TX.
When we arrived, as usual, we thoroughly scout the wedding venue regardless if we have been
there once or hundreds of times. As any amazing wedding photographer should do. We don't just rely on our talent as seasoned wedding photographers, we want to be prepared wedding photographers!

Our beautiful bohemian bride Kelly, being a photographer major herself really understood the importance of lending us the time we needed to not only capture but to also create stunning wedding Images.
We pride ourselves at IGOR wedding photography, for each and every time doing something a little out of the box when it comes to our craft. We don't want to walk away with one great wedding image we want you to receive a stunning wedding portfolio and album from beginning to end, and to uphold our reputation as being one of the best DFW wedding photographers!

Artistic & Elegant country wedding potraits

It truly gives us a great satisfaction when our wedding clients, appreciate that we
have a vision and allow us the time to recreate whatever is going on in our minds! We mainly shoot photo-journalistic photos during the day to tell the story as it unfolds, but we also take our time to create some fine art images that you are going to want to hang up in your living room.

We literally had Kelly & Phillip running through fields, jumping fences, twirling in circles, swinging on swings, it was so much fun, it shows in the photos.
The time allowed to create images as seen here is not much when you add it all together. We generally need about 45-60 minutes of extra time for family, wedding party and couple portraits. Usually half an hour after the ceremony and another half an hour later on to get a different look, once the daylight has changed!

Brides & Grooms don't be scared to take some time away from your wedding reception to get wedding photos that will last you a lifetime. This is also an important reason to hire a 2nd wedding photographer. They can still be inside your wedding with your guests capturing all the moments and festivities during the "cocktail hour".

Barefoot bride at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, Plano, Texas


She floated down the hill, our "go with the flow", hippie-chic, style-conscience bride. In her blue toms & her friend trailing behind her holding the train of her beautiful bridal gown.


She was a sight to see ! The weather was cooperating with us today as we had moved this very bridal session at least once a week, trying to run from rain showers. We also hadn't quite found the perfect location for her.


Jennifer ( Bride) and I, had brainstormed several locations , 7 different ones to be exact before coming to the final decision of Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, in Plano for her natural bridal session.


It's a special location to her, because her and future hubby go walking at Arbor Hills Trails with their fur babies very often.


With it's combination of earthy lush hills, winding trails, sprawling trees & a few blooming flowers here and there. We figured we couldn't go wrong with this location, we hope to visit there again when the waterfalls & streams are at full capacity, another natural feature of this park.


We started our bridal session at the look-out tower, this gave us some variety from the natural greenery that Arbor hills nature preserve provides. We continued Jennifer's bridal session on a winding path where we found some blooming purple flowers and took the opportunity to capture the glowing natural beauty of our fantastic bride!


Our bride Jennifer, has often mentioned to us that at home she is carefree and barefooted! We definitely took that into account and wanted to see her personality shine in her one of a kind bridal session. She kicked off her shoes and just walked into the setting sun with her bridal gown gathered in her arms, playfully looking back at us with each click. It was easy to get our bride Jen to smile, with just a whisper of her fiancé's name it was all smiles!


We couldn't conclude this bridal session without, letting the orange twilight gently kiss the trees ! As, the sun set, we let our beautiful bride Jen reflect on her upcoming wedding day, as we captured her in a very relaxed state. This bride and her fiancé was also featured a few weeks earlier in their engagement session that we shot at the Fort Wort Stockyards, check out that blog to show you how IGOR wedding photography creates fine art for all of your wedding moments from start to ending .

Kentucky meets Texas, Fort Worth Stockyards Engagement session


Our couple Jennifer & Denny met initially at a Fundraiser rugby game in Minnesota, where the bride was participating.

A mutual friend had brought Denny to the game, our bride Jennifer had explained to us that if you didn’t play rugby and came to this event you were treated as an outsider. So initially Jennifer (Bride) treated Denny as such, and wanted nothing to do with him.

He introduced himself, several times over several gatherings and again Jennifer ignored his efforts.

She finally decided, “I’ve given this guy a rough start and a lot of attitude” and wanted to be nice.

One night, he asked if he could take her to the Toby Keith Bar to hang out, it wasn’t an official date yet.

But when she walked out in a little yellow dress and boots, he said “Boy, I was in trouble” they danced all night in fact they were the only ones 2-stepping on the floor.

They decided to see where this new-found interest would take them, they dated long distance for almost a year before deciding to both settle in Texas.

They have been together for almost 5 years now, and Denny’s romantic proposal was in a hot air balloon on the soon to be brides birthday, as they neared landing there was a banner that read will you marry me!

A Fall Wedding to Remember-Weatherford-Diamond H3 Ranch

You remember the awesome elegant couple (all of our couples are awesome) we wrote about a few weeks ago?

I'll refresh your memory Ellisa is a doctor who occasionally travels to Africa and other countries to help women and children with medical care, and Jason is an architect who also accompanies his now wife to these countries in need to help out as well! Did I mention they are animal lovers and adopt animals too? And of course we are in love with them!

Fine Art Wedding Photography

Well we finally had the highly anticipated wedding day, I am not much a crier well, yes I am ( Igor would probably want me to clarify this is his fiancé writing now lol). Okay I am emotional, but weddings ironically do not usually strike emotion in me since I'm in working mode. But whoa! I had all the feels at this wedding y'all.

The theme spoke to fall! The colors were deep, rich and vibrant. It's hard to get the true feeling of fall in Texas, with our ever so changing weather but our bride nailed it at her wedding. Complete with s'mores, hot cocoa, games for the kids and adults, and tea and blankets to wrap up in with your loved ones.

It is not because we want you to spend all of your money on us (But thank you :) we know that this moment happens once! So we strongly encourage our brides and grooms to opt for video coverage of your wedding day. At IGOR Wedding Photography we have an amazing staff of second wedding photographers and wedding videographers who will ensure you that you will get great coverage and the life's precious moments and stories carefully recorded .

With that being said, I am so very pleased my bride changed her mind and decided to have video coverage because her ceremony couldn't have been more breathtaking. It was not only a joining of two hearts and two lives that day but a whole community. They praised the couple and even sang worship on a hilltop with green pasture views. How's that for wedding goosebumps?

But the wedding day emotions didn't end there, the reception was just as heartfelt. As the maid of honor poured out her love for her best friend and explained to the rest of the guest just what kind of amazing person our bride Ellisa is, and how lucky Jason was to have her.

I can't wait to shoot their anniversary pictures and family to come, again I will say we were fortunate to have this couple choose us to capture this amazing day!

The Tynan's Happily Ever After Wedding-Fort Worth Baptist Church


Sara & Seth were a couple we met almost a year ago to the date and Bride Sara was set on having a fairy tale theme wedding complete with a dress only fit for a princess!

The wedding ceremony took place at the North Fort Worth Baptist Church, and the bride Sara had revealed to us that the most important moment for us to capture would be her entrance down the aisle and the reaction of her groom, we were pleasantly surprised to see the emotion the groom displayed as he saw his bride for the first time in her beautiful ball gown styled wedding dress. Of course the groom teared up and we loved catching those priceless moments!

We have shot hundreds of weddings, and till this day we are never quite sure what to expect, but Sara was by far our giddiest bride! She smiled the entire time down the aisle and while exchanging her vows! She just couldn't contain her joy, it was awesome to see!

After the ceremony we took the formal group shots while the rest of the party headed to the reception at the Radisson Hotel Fort Worth Fossil Creek.

The reception was an intimate group of family and friends, we watched a slideshow of Sara & Seth growing up and their love for each other in pictures slide by!

Sara wanted one last image of everyone who attended the wedding so we ended with a wedding party group shot! These are always fun to do and the couple always love to have a photo of everybody!

It's fortunate for us to have met such a lovely couple who now have become not only lifelong clients but dear friends as well.

Let us capture your fairy tale beginning! Contact us today to schedule a free consultation!




Bridesmaids, Maid of honor, Man of honor, Best woman ..huh?


It's about to be 2017 my people! Unfathomable right ? This year has passed so fast with trends coming and going as fast as the man bun did ( it's a thing, google it).

We tell our couples, that the most important thing is how you feel at your wedding, the love, this day, this whole experience is uniquely yours. Don't try to outdo your sister in laws wedding who had the 50 ft gazebo and chocolate fondue fountain if that is something that doesn't speak to you and your groom. At the end of the day, you want the people you love the most, cherish and admire to be surrounding you as you pledge your love to your soon to be partner .

With this being said a new trend ( if you can call it that) has been swapping out the traditional best man for a "best woman", who says gender rules apply here ? Is your sister your other half and she knows what you are thinking before you speak it? That is the person who should be to the left of you as you make a commitment to your forever and always .

Bride, is your best friend the guy who always had your back in elementary, is it your brother or someone who feels like it, or does he just identify more with being part of the bridesmaids then the groomsmen? That's all perfectly okay too! Your wedding, your rules!

We have brides tell us in confidence that everyone in her bridal party was family from the grooms side or friends she had in college and never really clicked with. Don't sabotage your experience, your memories and most of all your pictures with people who don't mean the world to you standing beside you. Because you might have to frame this photo, you might have to put it in your album or worse you might have to return the favor and stand in their wedding to fill a spot.

Take a moment to think about people you've shared great times with, even if you haven't talked to them in awhile but you still consider each other friends. Let them know they are still special to you & you could use a good pal to stand next to you on an important day.

Then your next call is to IGOR Photography to capture that important day :)




Lights Festival Fine Art Bridal session, Grandview, Tx


It was another day in our Photography studio located in North Fort Worth, Texas and we were itching to do a bridal shoot! At IGOR Photography we are always trying to do something different whether it is at a wedding, portrait session or an event, just a little out of the box with creativity and our own personal style and editing .

It was while scrolling through social media, when my fiancé and I saw this lights festival coming to the Dallas area. Initially we were going to buy tickets for ourselves, it would make for an interesting date night right? Why not make a date night especially tailored for us, a styled bridal shoot it is!

We headed to our favorite bridal boutique located in Burleson, and found the wedding gown and veil that would complete this mini bridal shoot. Featured below: Enza by Maggie Sottero designs. A wedding dress with layered tulle-train and an embezzled belt to accent the waist. To that we added a beautiful cathedral length wedding veil with crystal edge. What a stunning combination!

Now, let's light the Sky! Our bride Sheridan, was a lovely sight to see. The lanterns weren't the only thing to light the sky that night as many people congratulated her with lighted torches and complimented her beauty, we played with perspective & depth of the many lanterns being set a sail to drift in the night air. It was an amazing fairy tale sight, a beautiful experience!

Technically and logistically this light festival bridal shoot was pretty demanding. We had to carefully set up the right flash lighting to light her up at night without overpowering the glowing light from the lanterns, that was important because we didn't want to kill that beautiful and magically lighted mood. Another even harder challenge was to time the exposures while avoiding capturing to many people walking around the bride. Like photographing a wedding, we had to get it right the first time, we really didn't have time to do any retakes, but with careful planning and execution we got exactly the shot that we had envision, and we had so much fun doing it!

This fine art bridal shoot for IGOR wedding photography, was a great way to capture the essence of what we love to do in a structured setting and on your wedding day, there are endless possibilities.
