Fort Worth Wedding Photographer

Can you believe it guys?!?! Two posts in two days! I think that's a new record for me! Anyway, I was granted permission from this gorgeous bride to post a few of my top pics from her session on the blog. Her husband-to-be is a member of facebook, so I promised not to post any on there. So Mac...if you're reading this, turn away this instant!

So...after driving around the Stockyards in Fort Worth and having no luck finding a spot to shoot (the rodeo was in town and it was CROWDED), we ended up back in Joshua, which is just south of Burleson for those of you who aren't familiar with the "Burbs".

Ashly is such a sweet individual that I've had the honor of knowing for a very long time, and has quite a special story behind the significance of her bridal gown. The dress was originally her mother's gown which she has had reconstructed to suit her own personal style. This is no ordinary "wear your mother's dress" situation. Ashly's mother Angela was diagnosed with Skin Cancer in September of 2003, and passed away in June of 2004. Since her mom is unable to be there with her physically during this special day, this dress will allow Ashly to have a piece of her mother close to her heart when she takes her vows.

As promised, here are a few of the shots from our session. I decided to only post images of her beautiful face, so as not to spoil the surprise of her customized dress. I'll post full length ones in May after the wedding!

Thanks for taking a peek at the blog today, and I'll be posting again very soon! I have a super cute, squishy baby shoot that I know you guys are just dying to see!!!

Ashley Mauldin - Fort Worth Photographer I am officially HORRIBLE at blogging! I know it has been months since my last post, but in my defense, I do have a toddler who keeps me very busy! That aside, the end of 2010 was extremely busy for me. In the month of October, I shot 4 weddings and several family portraits. November and December weren't much different. My schedule has been full of children's portraits, families, card designs, and a few maternity and newborn shoots. Add in a few bridal sessions and you have my last few months in a nutshell!

Over the holidays I spent some time catching up with my editing, and playing with some new equipment I received as gifts. I also recently purchased a new wide-angle lens, and I can't wait until my next opportunity to use it!

Anyway, I thought I would share my favorites from the recent months to catch you all up on what I've been doing while neglecting the blog! :-) I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

Baby Dax

Ugh! I just wanna pinch those cheeks!!!!

McKenzie Family these guys are so awesome! Doug and Natalie are two of our closest friends, and she's also my AMAZING hairdresser! Anyway, here are my faves from their family shoot with their son Greer. By the the midst of all these photoshoots, I managed to design a new logo!

I call this next image "Love Sandwich".

Little Miss Halle

I can't get over this little girl and her dimples! At her session, she was just getting over a nasty cold, but I think we managed to get some pretty cute shots, aside from the runny nose and cough. She was such a trooper!

Ok internet mongers...that is all I have time for now. I have a ton of editing to catch up on this weekend, so I will (hopefully) be posting some more previews in the next couple of days. I have an amazing bridal session that I am working on, so if I can get the bride's permission I'll be sharing a few of those. Anyway...hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and check in soon for more updates!
