Danielle and Bryce got married at GracePoint Community Church, which is their local church in Lumberton with a modest chapel. It was a gorgeous day and the sun shone all day long! The couple exchanged gifts and read each other’s promises to one another. This was a great opportunity to take photos of Bryce reading his future Bride’s vows at the ceremony stage where their union would soon begin.
The service was a beautiful sight in their local church. During the ceremony, the couple had a moment to recognize their family and friends before starting the service. It was a thoughtful way of involving everyone in the ceremony. They decorated the area with floral, lace, and drapes.
AFTER THE CEREMONY
The reception was in the main hall at the IBEW. The couple made their grand entrance in the afternoon and danced in the evening. Everyone laughed and took turns taking shots and of course getting their photos taken while doing so. For dinner they had everyone’s favorite; Casa Ole and the first dance was to their favorite song. They finished off the evening with some cake.
Danielle wore a long tulle dress and Bryce wore a charcoal suit and blue tie and they looked really amazing. It always a pleasure to come back to my hometown in Lumberton, Texas especially for this couple’s special day!

On May 25th Victoria and Samuel exchanged their promise of love to one another at the Book Nook Inn in Lumberton, Texas. I was thrilled when they chose Skys the Limit Production to photograph their wedding day.
Before we get into the classy wine-colored wedding, let’s rewind just for a moment to the day Sam proposed. He had the whole night planned. Both his and Victoria’s family were at one of their favorite steakhouses, and of course, the families knew why they were there. After everyone sat down for dinner in the “party room” together, Sam told a little white lie to Victoria. He said he had to go “grab his camera” out of the car.
At that time, Rachel, the maid of honor was hiding out in the car with one of Sam’s friends. He brought the pair with him inside the restaurant with the ring safely in his pocket. Sam prepared some music and a Skype call, so Victoria’s other maid of honor could be there for the moment as well. After doing all of this planning and even writing a whole note of everything he wanted to say, he became nervous with the number of people in the room. He started speaking a few things from his heart then popped the famous question. In Sam’s own words he said “She said YES right away because she has been waiting for a while for this to happen lol”.
Taking photos of everyone getting ready for the big day was a breeze because of the venue’s layout. The bride and groom’s room on top of one another. We even took the time to snap a photo of the couple together while still holding onto the tradition of the groom waiting to see his bride! Sam wore a dark suit with a wine-colored tie and white shirt. Victoria’s dress had laced see-through sleeves. Her modest train brushed the ground while she walked.
Before the ceremony, my team, the bridesmaids, and Victoria cried out in laughter while trying to position Victoria in a sexy head-turning pose for “Sam’s” photos. All jokes aside, the images turned out pretty good!
The ceremony was held outside of the Book Nook Inn next to the venue’s pond. Everything was beautiful; the bridesmaids wore wine-colored dresses while the groomsmen wore matching ties and vests. Finally, the unity candles were set up on the small dock on the water. During the lighting of the candle, Victoria surprised Sam with a special pocket watch. After exchanging rings and vows, let’s just say the smitten couple gave me more than enough time to photograph their first kiss.
Everyone gathered inside for the reception and cheered as the wedding party danced through the building. The couple showed off their love of the DC Universe by adding a golden Wonder Woman and Superman symbol hidden on the back of the bridal cake.
The sweetest speeches were given; even I couldn’t help but get a little choked up. One of the maids of honor mentioned passing her title as the “best” friend of the bride to the groom. My favorite part of the reception was the big group photo of all the guests; it’s always such a unique wedding photo because you can reflect and be reminded who all attended.
The night ended with a precious private dance for the couple and romantic flying paper lanterns into the sky. If you are looking for a photographer yourself, get in touch!
The last few months have been such a rush and so busy, but right now I would like to take the time to share and reflect on some of the places my work has been featured this year. Skys the Limit Production is involved with the Iman Project by providing videos of the wonderful workshops they have been setting up in Dallas, Texas. Bree Clarke created these workshops and designed them as a way to bring – as she would say – “Family, Friends & Community together one Farmhouse Table, Design & Workshop at a time.” During March – also known as Women’s History Month – the CW33 featured Bree in an interview talking about her growth as an entrepreneur in Dallas. I was honored to have Skys the Limit Production’s video displayed during the CW interview and create a video that properly represented the hard work Bree has done.
If you would like to know more about Bree’s project and view Skys the Limit Production’s, video visit the CW33 site here.
In addition to having big news on Skys the Limit Production’s videography side, there was also some news for photography, as well! Skys the Limit was also featured twice in VoyageDallas. If you haven’t checked out VoyageDallas before, you definitely need to if you live in the area or taking a visit to the Big D! This site gives you a guide of everything big and small happening in Dallas and last month one of the Editorial Staff contacted me. They asked questions about me and Skys the Limit Production and published the interview soon after. Seeing the article online was very exciting and encouraging, and I definitely owe it to all my past and new clients, so thank you! You can find that article here. The second time getting featured on the magazine was because of a photo I took on April 21, 2018 of one of my brides. I posted to Instagram and the post got featured in an article called “An Artistic Voyage: exploring local creative and artistic works”. If you would love to see the post you can find it here.
This year has already been amazing, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year has in store for Skys the Limit Production.

The past couple of weeks have been pretty busy! Every week a new face shows up with new opportunities. I’m ecstatic to see how Skys the Limit Production will become in the future. For the longest, I always searched for engaged couples, families, and graduating students to grow my business with and it wasn’t until just a few weeks ago that my mindset shifted a bit.
When I first arrived in Dallas, I met probably one of the best wedding planner you’d ever have the pleasure on meeting; Jess with Daydream Events. This little lady brought me to all sorts of vendor get-togethers where I was introduced to other great vendors like YOUR DJ, Texas Photobooth, Haywood Cotton Candy and much more. After taking photos for Jess and YOUR DJ, I met with Haywood and began creating videos which led me to The Iman Project + Lavender & Mint Designs. The Iman Project is a boutique agency that sets up unique workshops for ladies to create with friends and enjoy good drinks and food. Lately, I have been making small 35 second videos of the workshops. I have to admit, the workshops and teaming up with different vendors are making my job exciting and unpredictable. I also love the thought that Skys the Limit Production is making a difference for other businesses out there besides just itself.
I believe Skys the Limit Production will see success with working together with other professionals in Dallas. There is value in collaboration and partnership.
