Matt+Sarah-Valley Ranch Baptist Church Wedding

You may have seen Matt and Sarah a few times here already.  I’ve written about Sarah’s bridal session, their engagement session, the video I made for a her Dad and even a teaser of their wedding.  Now it’s time for the full blog post of their wedding photography.  Their wedding and reception was last month at Valley Ranch Baptist Church in Coppell.

I’m looking for new ways to say great things about the couples I shoot for.  They really are the best.  Matt and Sarah are so kind and gracious, it’s been terrific to get to know them over the last several months.  I was grateful to be a part of their wedding day and wish them the very best in their move to Boston.

Getting ready beforehand.

The shoes…

The bouquet…

…and of course the boots.

Sarah…do you think she’s knows how beautiful she looks?

The girls…

A moment of refuge.

It was hot…really hot.  I told them it was Matt’s fault…the guys were great!

A few moments remaining.

In Sarah’s room getting ready they were listening to tunes.  Gotta have the Glee version of some Journey tunes…a perfect match for the ring shot!

Making the switch for the ceremony…



Matt wasn’t going to let a wheelchair get in the way of dancing with his Mom.  Matt…you are AWESOME!

All of Sarah’s sorority sisters singing…

I posted a version of this one earlier.  This was in the last few minutes before they changed close to exit.

A monochrome rendering of a moment later.

Bye Bye!If you’ve found your way here and are planning your own wedding.  I would love to talk to you about your plans.  It the contact button and let’s talk!
