Dallas Wedding Planner Feature

This week one of our couples is featured on the Dallas Wedding Planner Blog for their series called “Love Gives Me Goose Bumps.” It has been such a joy getting to know and work with Erin and Craig this past year and they are such a sweet couple! You can view the feature at the Dallas Wedding Planner Blog which is a great blog for anyone planning a wedding in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Grapevine Wedding

A Garden Wedding

What a beautiful day it was for Megan and Juan Carlos’ Wedding at Katie’s Garden at the historic Heard-Craig House in McKinney. I’ll start off with a couple of photos from Megan’s bridal session.

















































After the ceremony they took a carriage ride through the square to the reception which was at the Grand Ballroom at the Grand Hotel. They were literally stopping traffic!

Winter Wonderland

This winter has brought an unusual amount of snow, but our puppy Ollie has been enjoying it as much as he can. Here is a photo of him having fun. I think there’s more snow on him then there is on the ground!


Texas Wedding Guide Feature

Melissa & Trey’s wedding at the Dallas Arboretum is featured in the newest issue of the Texas Wedding Guide. It’s a wonderful magazine that is a great resource for anyone planning a wedding and we are excited to be in the newest issue. I know Trey & Melissa are too!


Bride’s Choice Award


We are very excited to be honored with WeddingWire.com’s Bride’s Choice Award for the second year in a row! This award recognizes the top five percent of all vendors in the WeddingWire Community. We want to say thank you to all of our clients who helped make this award possible. Here’s to another great year!

Arboretum Weddings

We photographed so many beautiful weddings at the Dallas Arboretum this year and I wanted to post some of the photos from the two most recent weddings. First is Lisa and Brent’s vintage garden themed wedding in the Sunken Garden. And since we had such a blast with their engagement session in historic downtown McKinney I had to share a couple of photos from that session as well.

Melissa and Trey’s Wedding

I just had to share some photos from Melissa and Trey’s wedding at the Dallas Arboretum on March 20th. The ceremony took place at sunset in A Women’s Garden and it was so beautiful! Their reception took place later that evening at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas. The cake, by Le Gateau Cakery, followed with the butterfly theme and was very whimsical (and I heard quite tasty too)!

The next evening they had a big party in their backyard and it was so much fun! They served fries, mini burgers and cupcakes and everyone danced into the wee hours of the night. Congratulations Melissa and Trey!

Tiffany and Jay’s Engagement Photos

I want to share some photos from Tiffany & Jay’s recent engagement session. They are such a sweet couple and you can tell they just adore each other! We have been so lucky getting to know them the past few months and can’t wait to share more photos from their wedding soon at Delaney Vineyards.


Wedding Wire Bride’s Choice Award

I am excited to say Phase 3 Photography was recently awarded a 2009 Bride’s Choice Award from WeddingWire. You can read more about this award in the press release below.


In its inaugural year, the Bride’s Choice Awards recognizes and honors vendors from the WeddingWire Network that demonstrate excellent quality of service, responsiveness, professionalism, value of cost and flexibility. This year’s recipients represent the top three percent of WeddingWire’s vendor community, which includes over 100,000 wedding vendors from across the US. That means Phase 3 Photography is one of the very best.

Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the company, the Bride’s Choice Awards are determined exclusively by recent newlyweds through surveys and reviews.

“We are excited to launch this annual award program to honor high-performing vendors based solely on the experiences of our WeddingWire community,” according to Timothy Chi, WeddingWire’s Chief Executive Officer. “This year’s recipients have set the bar high, exhibiting excellent service and expertise in the wedding industry.”

Phase 3 Photography would like to thank our past clients for speaking on our behalf and helping us win the 2009 Bride’s Choice Award!

Brittany and Ethan’s Wedding

Brittany & Ethan are such a fun and creative couple and we were so excited to photograph their wedding! They wanted to do something unique for their wedding and decided on a Tim Burton theme. Wendy Kidd with Each and Every Detail helped them transform their wedding and reception into something truly beautiful. The most amazing string arrangements played throughout the ceremony and I was blown away! The floral arrangements were done by the amazing Pamm Meyers with Bridal Blooms and Creations and Soulbox Productions did the videography shooting only on 8mm film as requested by Brittany & Ethan.
