Mr. and Mrs. Lopez | October 13th | Classic Oaks Ranch

The first wedding to start the fall season for Cortney Dani Photography! It was THE BEST. Every aspect of this wedding was planned out so perfectly. Daniel and Allison tied the knot at Classic Oaks Ranch on October 13th, just before sunset. It was beautiful. Perfect floral arrangements and gorgeous cranberry colors mixed with navy made my heart sing. Their ceremony time lined up perfectly, the setting sun kissing every photo. Now, to the most important part: Allison and Daniel. These two people are so amazing! They’re so genuine and loving, as their photographer, I have the utmost gratitude, thank you for choosing me! You created a beautiful celebration from the ground up; I know your marriage will reflect the same. Congratulations on starting forever with your best friend (and thank you for having me be a part of it)!

Wedding | Andrew & Shelby | Telico Gin

I captured a heart-warming wedding this past weekend at Telico Gin, just outside of Ennis, TX. This venue is so awesome, they’ve got a rustic barn, brand new wooden chapel and such amazing outdoor views. I have had the opportunity to capture pictures for other branches of this family, but this was my first time capturing pictures for Andrew, his bride and their perfect little Piper! These three just make my heart sing. Piper is as beautiful as her mother, the picture of the two of them below it’s absolutely my favorite. Second in line in the favorites department is the bouquet toss! Oh, my, heavens, the cutest thing ever! Also, the most dramatic (in the best way) win in our wedding history; scroll down to see!
Congratulations on your marriage Andrew and Shelby! May God bless every step you make; you three are a beautiful picture of family. <3

Daniel and Allison’s engagement session at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and Trinity Park in Fort Worth

I have no idea why I got so lucky, but Daniel and Allison picked me as their photographer! How awesome that I have the opportunity to take photos of these beautiful, smart people! They are engaged to be married in October and their venue is Classic Oaks Ranch, I am so excited. I must say though, the best part of it all is them; they’re kind, humble and very generous! They helped me out in their respective fields of work, too, I am forever grateful. I loved capturing this session in the Japanese Gardens at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, not to mention, Allison wore the PERFECT dress for the location! I’m still in love with it months later. After a great time at the garden, we scooted over to Trinity Park to play with their pups! Oh man, they’re energetic for sure, but soooo cute; all them together, family goals y’all. I loved every aspect of this session, the outfits, locations, weather and especially the people. I cannot wait for October.

Kellen & Hannah, are engaged…and now, almost married! Colleyville, TX

These are two of the happiest people you’ll ever meet! It’s true happiness, y’all, that fuels these two! I’m so thrilled they’ve asked me to capture these irreplaceable moments. They’re getting married this next month, so, I figured I should probably blog their awesome engagement session we did several months ago! We captured their engagement photos at the Colleyville Nature Center, at the same time I photographed their family’s photos! I got to meet the whole clan. The family and friends that surround Kellen and Hannah are phenomenal, getting to know all of them, even just a bit, has been such a blessing for me. I can’t wait for all the feels on their wedding day! (I’ll be the one with the camera crying my eyes out.)

Oak Grove Park | Grapevine, TX

Little Preston! We visited Oak Grove Park in January just before sunset; the weather was great considering the time of year and Preston loved grabbing all the nature around him. 🙂 Preston turned one year old this past January (and I’m just now blogging…) and now he’s going to be a big brother! I have been given the amazing privilege of capturing photos for nearly all of Melody’s relatives, sisters, parents, almost the whole clan! It’s the biggest compliment and they have me back for each milestone, it’s so humbling. Your family is precious and you both are amazing parents, Melody and Shawn! I love seeing you grow as a family!

Stone Creek Park | Flower Mound, TX

Andrew and Jessica are two God-fearing, joyful bundles of lightheartedness! Jessica met me at a cafe for our consultation…talking to her was like chatting with a good friend; I loved it! During the engagement session, they kept asking me questions about how my life is going, how they could pray for me, seriously?! They totally turned an engagement session, which is suppose to be all about them, into something completely selfless. I want to be more and more like them everyday. I am so glad that they picked me to capture these special moments, I am truly grateful! I hope you two loved your engagement session, I cannot wait for September. <3

Historic 512 | Fort Worth, TX

Friday was amazing! April 28th, 2017 Cara wed Josh and became Mrs. Thurman!
Josh and Cara celebrated a beautiful day filled with love, laughter and so much fun. Together these two illuminate a room; their smiles are so contagious and their laughter brings everyone joy. Thank you both for having me as your photographer, I am so thankful. Historic 512 is a quaint and perfect venue in the heart of Fort Worth, I just love it! Gigi’s cupcakes rocked it and Bust a Move Entertainment kept the party at a high all night. The best part, to-go hotdogs at the end of the reception; foodie win. Congratulations you two, you’re married! Enjoy that honeymoon.

Little Chapel in the Woods | Greenhouse | Denton, TX

Cara is such a stunning bride, I feel so lucky to have taken these photos for her! This day was beautiful, we captured it just after winter wore off, spring wasn’t in full bloom yet, but you wouldn’t know it! We ventured out to the TWU Greenhouse and Gardens, near Little Chapel in the Woods; a great choice by Cara. I finally get to share them with you because…today I have the privilege of capturing her marriage to Josh! Check back in a day or two for a preview into their beautiful day.
