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!

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".

Contact IGOR wedding photography today to talk to one of the best wedding photographers in Dallas-Fort Worth! Let's set up a private & free consultation at our studio. We can discuss your wedding details, what you envision your images looking like and explain to you how we work & educate you on amazing wedding photography!

A Milestone Mansion wedding in Denton-Ericka & Andrew's Wedding

 

Our beautiful bride Ericka was a classic bride in that she really wanted an understated elegance about every aspect of her wedding.
Starting with the gorgeous venue she chose Milestone Mansion, located in the heart of Krum, near Denton, Texas.
The Milestone Mansion wedding venue is a breathtaking location, it has a classic coastal flair, influenced by the British colonial era and a unique southern charm, it has gorgeous gazebo and dock overlooking a pond. It was a perfect wedding venue for Ericka & Andrew.

Ericka loved her wedding venue so much, that we did both her engagement session and bridal there.

The wedding day began with the bridal party getting ready at a nearby hotel.
We caught the finishing touches at the Milestone Mansion in their spacious bridal suite adorned with crystal chandeliers and several full length mirrors.
Our stunning bride Ericka & our handsome groom Andrew had an amazing evening full of dancing, great food and moments to remember for a lifetime!

We wish them the best and hope to capture pictures of their first anniversary!

Be daring, be different, be a smart bride!

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!

 

We sure are glad Denny was persistent in his efforts with the beautiful Jennifer, we can’t wait to watch you two join as one on April 14th at the beautiful wedding venue Wild Wood Inn in Denton, Texas.

The Engagement session featured with Bride Jennifer and Groom Denny, in Fort Worth, Texas

She mentioned they were both a “little country” with bride being from Kentucky and groom from Texas, so what better way to showcase country love then the famous Fort Worth Stockyards.

Please contact Meaghan or Igor to discuss receiving ,the best Dallas Fort worth wedding photography in Texas for your wedding. we want to give you stunning images for years to last, your love story deserves amazing wedding photographers !

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.

Generational Lifestyle Family Shoot

IGOR Photography loves weddings! But that is not all we specialize in, along with our wedding photography, we like to shoot high fashion, commercial photography as well as personal lifestyle portrait sessions and fine art generational portraits like the photo featured below! We loved working with the Morrison family.

Young Sara, came to us and asked if for her mother’s birthday she could have a candid lifestyle shoot including her mother and grandmother endearingly nicknamed “Maui” (she was a spunky grandma!). She wanted the shoot to include pastime hobbies that were representative of them! Since mom, Sara, and Maui enjoy making cupcakes they decided to bake some while we were shooting (That was incredibly difficult to shoot and smell the aroma of delicious chocolate cupcakes).

We also took time during this shoot to take some relaxed and natural pictures of the trio !

This session was so much fun and can’t wait to capture them with the whole family during the holidays!

Botanical Gardens- Mei & Z

 

We met the lovely Siqi Mei & Zhiqi, whom we called 'Mei & Z' when they inquired through email needing pictures immediately because they were getting married in China in less then a few weeks! We were more then happy to fulfill their request and the deadline.

Our bride didn't want a typical engagement session, since she was getting married in China and had been living in Texas for the last 2 years of her life going to school and studying she wanted to capture her life here with her groom. She decided to dawn a gorgeous bridal gown from Pence & Panache and Z wore a suit from Neiman Marcus .

We began with hair and makeup provided by very talented Destinee Seawolf at our Studio in Fort Worth, Texas. Then we headed to the Fort Worth botanic garden, the bride was adamant about having a lush green scenery with pops of color, she chose the perfect location!

At the botanical gardens in Fort Worth we lucked out in the fact they had just finished a wedding ceremony, it provided the white chairs and gazebo covered in flowers and greenery.

Once the sun started setting, our bride got a little bit cold and we thought it was sweet that our groom kept her warm between each location change, he helped her with her coat, and we thought it would be nice to capture these tender moments we finished with the handsome groom catering to his beautiful bride by placing her coat over her shoulders.

We wish Mei & Z a lifetime of happiness, and a wonderful wedding & life In China & congrats on their expecting a child :)

Let IGOR wedding photography capture each special moment, from your graduation, wedding, family gatherings to first child !

Can we say we met at a coffee shop? Online Dating!

 

We are in a new millennium and what was considered the norm is not norm or standard dating practices anymore. At IGOR wedding photography, one of the first questions we ask our couples to get to know them better is "How did you meet?" we love hearing your love stories !

You would be surprised to hear that about 60-70% of our couples met online! It's funny to ask and then they look at each other unsure of whether to tell us the whole truth or not, and I already know what they are going to say! That they met online, it is nothing to be ashamed of or having to come up with some coffee shop story. Online dating done safely of course, is a great way to meet your potential partner and efficiently weed out the bad eggs .

Engagement Photography at the Dallas Arboretum

And if you are one of those couples who met online when you choose us to be apart of your day as your photographers, we will be sharing one more thing in common as well! Igor & Meaghan met online about 2 years ago, fell in love and the rest is his/her story :)

Contact IGOR photography today to discuss how you envision your wedding day captured, tell us your love story however it began , we love to hear it.

How to dress for an engagement portrait session

 

Your clothing for the engagement session can either break it or make it. It's not enough to just have the best engagement photographer or perfect lighting, the outcome of your engagement pictures also depends of what you and your partner are wearing. What you wear is going to influence how comfortable you are moving around and how you and your fiancé look together.

Wear comfortably and be comfortable

The first and maybe most important consideration when you choose your clothes for your engagement session is to choose a style that reflects who you are and that makes you comfortable. Don't dress up to much if it's not you, it might make you feel uncomfortable during the photo shoot. It doesn't mean that you have to wear the "sweatpants" that your wear every other day, you want to dress up a little bit, just don't overdo it, be yourself and be comfortable.

Try to avoid to go out the day before the engagement session and buy a new outfit in a rush. Make sure that you have worn the outfit a few times before and that you know what it fits right and that it makes you feel good. The day of the engagement shoot is not a day for experimentation.

Look good on your engagement photos!

The Colors and Patterns

Your garments colors and patterns are very important for how good the engagement picture turn out. Choose colors that are solid and not to bright. Avoid complicated patterns or any letters or symbols on your clothes. The key here is to keep it simple. You don't want to wear any clothing that's competing with the person and drawing attention to the clothes instead of the faces of the engaged couple.

The Shoes and the Accessories

Show Off Your Shoes! This is a piece that's very important. Make sure that the are well polished and/or clean. You can have a perfect outfit, but if they shoes are worn out and ugly, it weal break the look of your engagement pictures.

Great accessories and jewelry can give your outfit a very nice touch and it's a great way to show your style, but don't were to much of it, a nice scarf, shirt cuffs and nice watch can go a long way. Make it personal!

Show Off Your Best Assets

If you have a favorite part of your body, go for it and show it off! Have fun with a shorter skirt and and high heels to show off your beautiful legs. then have your photographer capture the perfect photos that best show your long legs.

We often like to color-match what you are wearing with the background!

Dress for the Location and Time of the year

You want to choose a outfit that won't clash with your surroundings and the "theme" of the engagement shoot, this will make sure that the photos look natural and not strangle staged, and of course dress according to the season and weather, nothing kills a shoot quicker than an engagement couple in t-shirts and mini skirts during a cold windy Dallas winter day, believe me I know!!

Alcohol & The Wedding

Weddings !

They are one of the most important and by far joyous moments of our lives. At IGOR wedding photography we have had our fair share of nervous brides and grooms. It is important to remember that this day goes by faster than you would expect and we want you too cherish every moment of it!

It is okay for brides/grooms to feel anxious and have those pre-wedding jitters, It is also more than okay, to partake in one glass of champagne, that can ease the nerves (hand your photographer a glass while you're at it ;) , but in our experience it is best to limit yourself to one glass not a bottle, you have the entire night for celebrating and you still have too make it down the aisle and through your wedding portraits in the best shape possible.

I've unfortunately had my share of inebriated brides, but more often it's the groom who has decided to celebrate a little to early!!! And can barely make it through the ceremony and although at IGOR wedding photography we make sure you get Bride & Groom portraits, it can be difficult when the groom is not coherent, the bride is now stressed out and you still have several hours before the reception is over. So try to not start the drinking to early!

It's important to pace yourself with the drinks! Weddings are meant to be fun and most of all memorable, so please go ahead and enjoy a glass or shot before the wedding if that's what you want, just make sure that you hydrate in between, and then have another glass of your favorite beverage when the toast to your marriage begins with friends and family, and then try to wait for the next drink until all wedding activities such as first dance, cake cutting and bouquet/garter toss and portraits of Groom/Bride have occurred. Then enjoy the rest of the night however you please. Even if that means not remembering your wedding night ;)

If you have a groom..or Bride that likes to party like it's 1999 ( r.i.p prince), It might be a good idea, to let guest or the bar know not to serve him/her alcoholic beverages, or tell the bar to make the drinks not as strong, with half the amount of alcohol servings.

And always make sure guest have a designated driver, if you are providing an open bar, or provide them with a place to lay their head for the night.

Let's start a new trend..

Great party at a Dallas Indian Wedding Reception!

Engagement Session in Downtown Fort Worth

This Fort Worth engagement session featured below was a really fun shoot for IGOR wedding Photography, we love when our couples put thought into their outfit choices and really express their style and personality, it really can complete a picture when effort is put into dressing well!

We started at the Trinity Park located in Fort Worth, we’ve shot here several times before, it’s a good choice for anyone who enjoys what nature has to offer, it includes lush greenery with plenty of trees, a pond with ducks & geese, hidden bridges and train tresses. Our engaged couple chose to bring a prop for us to play around with and it added a great touch to their love story!

Our second engagement session location was at a college campus, also located in downtown Fort Worth, known as the TCC Campus, this was a change from the first site, being more urban, with cool water features, an open walkway, architectural structures and scenic views overlooking a bridge. the TCC campus offered us an opportunity to create a more modern and romantic feeling for our engaged couple as the sun began to set with a styled fashion influence.

Please contact IGOR wedding Photography today for a one of a kind Engagement or Anniversary session!

Bridal Portrait Session at the W Hotel in Dallas

 

I have never shot at the W Hotel before, but while driving in Dallas I had passed this hotel with it's vertical high rising structure and funky, urban features many times before.

This hotel is any photographers dream, or anyone who appreciates cool features like mirrored walls, modern furniture and vibrant up-lighting. This was the perfect location for our fine art bridal sessions!

Our gorgeous bride Julie, featured here had a stunning dress that we really wanted to do justice, as well as capture all of the neat features that W hotel has to provide.

The W hotel has a stairwell, that gives a small ode to Texas with a toy horse & cowboy curtain framing the window in which we got some brilliant natural light.

While waiting for the sunset, we took advantage of the light outside and placed our bride in these cool swinging wicker chairs on W hotel patio area, to capture her natural beauty as well as some detail shots, such as her beautiful shoes.

As the sun started to lower in the sky, we decided too take a ride in the elevator to a level they called 'Altitude' once reaching the floor, I understood why, we were at least 30 stories high and the wind was howling.

Greeted with cloud covered walls, we moved outside to see a blue infinity pool. The winds were probably at their highest this day but Igor Wedding Photography sought this only as a creative challenge, to produce some true Fine Art Images.

Our Bride Julie, mentioned the 33rd floor. We once again got on the elevator, after arriving on the 33rd floor, Julie relayed that this is where she was having her wedding reception. The walls are textured metallic mirrors, and is like a swanky, luxurious club, but the real standout of this room is when you transition to outside, with amazing panoramic views of downtown Dallas.

We choose this area to give our Bride Julie some stunning Bridal Imagery of her dress and encapsulate the scenery of downtown Dallas.

As we were leaving and saying our farewells, the Photographer in me never stops my eyes from wondering to top what I just created, after seeing that I was surrounded by floor to ceiling mirrors, I asked my bride to just look at herself & admire her own beauty in the ceiling mirrors, to create a last look to wrap up this session.
