Engagement photos in the Dallas Arts District with Michelle and Conrad by Dallas wedding photographer Laura Miller.
Meet Conrad and Michelle! These two are a fun couple from Dallas who have hired me to be their Dallas wedding photographer this October for their Chandelier Room wedding. (Yay!) I just got to tour the Chandelier Room with them, Michelle’s beautiful bridesmaids, as well as her parents, and I am SO excited to be their Dallas wedding photographer. Seriously. The venue is spectacular, modern, and just plain gorgeous! They are a couple of hotties, and their love is so apparent when they are together. I have only known them for a few months, and I am seriously so happy for them to tie the knot.
Michelle works at the Joule hotel, which is an interior design dream and that is where we will be taking her (bound to be amazing) Dallas bridal photos; while Conrad is a very talented structural engineer! They live in Deep Ellum (how cool is that?) and spend a lot of time around Downtown Dallas, so their engagement session in those areas was a no brainer. These two are as Dallas as it gets!
Conrad did a fantastic job planning a secret proposal by telling Michelle he was flying her to San Antonio for a trip on her birthday, but popped the question three days later on their 1 year anniversary!! Swoon! You’ve got to give a guy props that can keep something like that secret! haha
We started off their Dallas engagement photos in some Deep Ellum since it was close to home for them, so that we could get some photos of their fur babies, Dioji and Puppy; (who are bilingual, naturally!) They were so good, and with very minimal treat bribing, too! 😉
After we knocked out some colorful Deep Ellum engagement photos we headed to the Arts District, where we encountered the Delorean from Back to the Future, I got attacked by ants, enjoyed the sights of the Dallas skyline, and oh yeah, made some more sweet Dallas engagement photos! Over all, it was a great session, and I hope you will agree when you see the results. It was totally worth the ant bites. 😉
BONUS ROUND! We got together for a few more engagement photos in Dallas at the place where they met, J Black’s Lounge on Henderson. So we knocked out some photos there, so they could have those as well! These two are so natural in front of the camera! I love that we were able to do some photos where their story started! Personalizing sessions like that makes them 100 times better!
