I'm so excited to share that HAD&P and Lindsey Zamora have been featured on Ruffled today!! Go over and check it out to see this amazing shoot styled and creatively directed by the ultimate creative genius, Lindsey Zamora. Lindsey and I worked hard to create a shoot that encompassed raw Texas landscape infused with hints of native influence. The shoot exhibits classic refined elements paired with an edgy and southwestern concept, appropriately on trend. We had a blast working together on every detail of the creative design and became fast friends on our weekend getaway to our family ranch in Post, Texas where we photographed the setup. Lindsey's amazing husband Robert Zamora provided the intricate wood work you see throughout the shoot. This dynamic couple designed the cake stand and table topper out of wood to be modularly placed underneath the fine china, creating the most perfect juxtaposition. I'm so thankful to all of our fantastic vendors who collaborated with us on this shoot. Kelly Marble of College Flowers out of Lubbock Texas supplied us with the most beautiful blend of soft unique florals with touches of succulents and dusty miller. One of our favorite surprises was the unexpected and oversized agave leaf he used as the center piece of the table scape. Lauren Essl of Blue Eye Brown Eye supplied us with the most unique calligraphy and vintage stamps. Her wonderful penmanship is an art form we were thankful to incorporate as it gave the shoot an underlying elegance paired with the graphic letterpress designs by Bella Figura. My sweet friend Traci Robinette and her husband Clay volunteered to be our models and did a fantastic job despite the unseasonable chilly weather! Traci's mom Marla Felton from Lubbock designed the beautiful wedding cake and is one talented lady with baked goods!! Thanks to Suite 206 for lending us the ahhhhh-mazing lucite ghost chairs and Gloss Luxury Rentals for the copper cake table. We love love love this shoot and hope you do to!!
Moving to Fort Worth has been a blessing in many way. I love our new house, I love the city of Fort Worth, but most of all I love my new friends!!! I met Sarah through my best friend Megan and am so grateful for the connection. She is such a breath of fresh air and has an incredibly sweet disposition. A fellow young entrepreneur herself, Sarah owns an adorable paperie/gift store on Cow Town's most happening boulevard, Camp Bowie. You may remember seeing some of her beautiful merchandise from the Inscriptions on the Blvd blog post back in November. Needless to say I was so humbled and honored when someone with such great taste and high expectations asked me to photograph her wedding!! To refresh your memory, check out Sarah and Carter's adorable engagement session from this past fall.
The wedding took place in Oklahoma City and was a lovely event from start to finish. Sarah styled the day with tasteful whites, subtle purples (for the couples love of TCU) and touches of timeless elegance intertwined with a modern flair. Sarah and Carter have been together all through college and fit one another just perfectly. I loved hearing about their fun background & courtship throughout the weekend, particularly at the rehearsal dinner!! They have a hysterical group of friends who made their way to OKC to help this dynamic duo celebrate their big day. There was never a dull moment and it's one of the most fun weddings I've had the pleasure of shooting. A big thanks to Britt Jones for being my second, you are so much fun my friend! Also, thanks to Sarah and Carter for including me on such a wonderful wedding weekend. I can't wait to make more fun memories now that we all live in the same city!! Wishing you the happiest of marriages you two!
Shanda Hasse is my one of my new favorite people. She's a fun, vivacious, & extremely creative woman and I feel so blessed to have crossed paths with her. She's a fellow entrepreneur and owns a fabulous graphic design and event planning business called White Sparrow Design. She has already taught me so much and has inspired me greatly. She hired me to photograph her daughter Adele's first birthday party this fall and I'm so glad that I was available to capture the memories of the day. Shanda did all the leg work and effortlessly tied each dazzling detail into this perfect event. She truly has a gift for creativity and one beautiful family!! Enjoy-
