Deep Ellum Dallas Texas is a great location to be have a creative engagement photography session. Allison and Anthony were so adorable together and make a fabulous couple. We roamed the neighborhood to work with some of the streets artsy vibe and fun colors to use as a great backdrop for our photo session. I also need to personally thank Rod Baker of DFW Parties to utilize his amazing roof top view overlooking the Dallas Texas Skyline. Thank you so much Rod for being so helpful. If anyone is in need of a talented amazing DJ – Rod is your man! Here are some images to show a great sneak peak of our photography session. Follow this love story, share and enjoy with your friends. Wedding Photography for Allison and Anthony coming soon!
Lauren and Brian are engaged to be married. We got together with their two amazing dogs to share in their very special artistic engagement photography session. We wandered through the streets of the Bishop Arts District in Dallas Texas to use the artistic surroundings of the neighborhood. This area is one of Dallas’s iconic areas and that is what Lauren and Brian were looking for as a backdrop for their photos. Take a look at how adorable these pictures came out.
Raven and Jerome are engaged to be married. This adorable couple has traveled to many beautiful locations and were engaged in Paris. So it made sense to arrange their engagement photography session at an airport. We had the privilege of using a very cool retro 1948 Cessna airplane as backdrop for the occasion at the McKinney Texas airport. We then went over to the beautiful Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney to complete the photos in a different setting! The Bella Donna Chapel is set in a wonderful location that gives the feeling as though you are in Italy. I love it and am so happy to shoot at this exquisite spot. Here are some great shots from our session. I am looking forward to Raven and Jerome’s upcoming wedding day!
Dallas Texas, Bishop Arts District – Engagement Photography Session on a chili day in Texas. Here is the sneak peak of the beautiful Brittany and Domingo. I met Brittany and her kind amazing mom while they interviewed me for Brittany’s upcoming wedding with Domingo. I immediately hit it off with both the bride and her mom and knew we were a great fit for their photography for their big day. I was so excited that Brittany’s family attended the session to help take care of their two little dogs that we had at the engagement session with us. So, of course I had to get them in a couple of the images as well. These guys were playful and adorable with each other and were just so much fun for Relive Photography’s day in Dallas Texas.
Here is a look at the fun we had that day and can’t wait to photograph their upcoming DFW Texas Wedding… Please leave your comments so that we can be voted Best of Dallas Texas Wedding photographer and keep an eye out for Brittany and Domingo’s wedding style
Turn a rainy wedding day into an artistic photography Trash your Dress Day. This couple had selected an amazing location for their wedding nuptials. The day of their wedding had rained and the stunning views that we had hoped to take advantage of on their wedding day were hidden by thick fog. So, when all else fails we found a way around that! Rachael and Chris had a blast at the Vermont’s fairytale legendary location of Trapp Family lodge. After climbing the mountain behind the lodge we came to a stunning old chapel that was perfect for this very occasion. We started our photography at the chapel and worked our way down to the landscape overlooking the grand mountains that surrounded the lodge. Spectacular spot. Wow. Here are some samples from this great photography day shoot. Thanks for having me back Rachel and Chris.
Relive Photography was featured in Style Me Pretty and could not be more excited. Here is what they said “When you pair a seriously stylish Bride, Longwood Events and the beautiful venue that is State Room – you are bound to get a wedding that will wow. And this wedding WOWS. From the gorgeous couple to the gorgeous views and all the details in between – Relive Photography captured all the details planned to perfection by this gorgeous new Mrs. which makes for a gallery that could not be more beautiful.”
From Taylor of Longwood Events… Kristin and Scott were married at The State Room in downtown Boston this past September. Every detail of the day was designed and executed by the beautiful bride. She had a hand in the invitation suite, all of the decor, even the custom cookie favors, and no detail was left behind. The ceremony was an intimate candlelit service for fifty close friends and family. The beautiful music selections and heartfelt vows left not a dry eye in the crowd. The space was transformed with vibrant yellow kissing ball chair decor and a rustic ceremony arch with a stunning view of the city of Boston as the backdrop.
Working with Kristin and Scott over the year to plan their wedding showed us what an amazing couple they were. They incorporated their love of tapas into a customized menu for their guests that lent itself well to the rustic dinner party theme. The layout of long communal tables was a wonderful use of the modern space and gave them the intimate feel they were looking for. Her florals carried through her vintage theme with simple, tailored bouquets and various sizes of milk glass centerpieces on the guest tables. The entire day was a wonderful celebration of a beautiful couple!

You have too many pots and pans? Your grandmother handed down her fine china to you? You already live together as a couple and have EVERYTHING you could ask for? What do I tell my friends and family when they ask the big question? Where are you registered?
On my wedding day I truly did not know what to do about a bridal registry. Everyone asked and I had no answers. After my own wedding had given me so much experience in finding great ideas and tips, here is one. Choose Relive Photography as your wedding photographer and you can take advantage of our Bridal Registry. We make it really easy for your gift givers to go online and securely purchase a gift certificate towards your photography package or products (ie. albums, prints, thank you cards, canvas prints, digital downloads, custom products and more) allowing you to get everything you want from your photography.
Why does this work so well? Because you have the ability to offer your guests a way of purchasing a gift for you that is of sentiment.
Help! I registered for some really cool stuff, but now I’m not sure where to put that information on our invitations. Where do I list the stores where we’re registered?
Honestly? You don’t. While it has become somewhat commonplace to see this as part of the invitation package, etiquette says it is not acceptable. It may seem as though it is helpful info, but it appears as though you are saying, “Come to my wedding, bring a gift, and, oh, by the way, here’s where you can get it.” Keep the focus on what this day is all about: your wedding, not the gifts.
Instead, you could build a wedding website and include that sort of info there. Also, make sure your close family members (who will be asked) know where you are registered. They can tactfully pass along the info to those who request it.
What about the shower invitation, you ask? Well, that’s a different story. The purpose of that particular event is to “shower you with gifts,” so by all means, include all of that information in the shower invitation. That is why Relive Photography understands how exciting the bridal shower is and offers your closest friends and family the option of purchasing gift certificates toward your photography products and packages.

It is a celebration of your love. It is a time to share with your closest family and friends, committing each moment to memory to treasure forever.
It takes a ton of time to plan every little detail for your engagement and wedding day. Whether you are planning from far away or locally and you don’t have lots of hours to research how you will pose for pictures or the exact shots that you would like to have, you don’t have to waste time, with Relive Photography by Laura Parent as your local liaison, you can trust and have complete confidence that you will be guided throughout the entire planning process to get the absolute most out of your photography.
Remember we are the experts that take the time to guide you along and make every minute count. We don’t expect you to figure it out on your wedding day. You are there to have fun and enjoy your most important day. We will guide you on time frames that you will be needed to set aside ahead of time to plan your photography itinerary. That’s right, before the big day.
The design and execution of your wedding day depends greatly on the team of professionals you choose to bring together. Relive Photography will work closely with your entertainment company and event planners. We will meet you so that we can get to know you on a more personal level, gain a complete understanding of exactly how you envision your wedding day, and set a realistic budget. If you are not located in the area and are planning from afar, we can arrange to meet via Skype or phone for your convenience.
Our focus on your wedding day is giving you personal attention while ensuring all the details are coordinated.
Since we are organized and prepared for your wedding day, you will just have to sit back and relax and not think. You, your family and friends will be aware of what is going to happen ahead of time to plan your formals seemlessly and organized so that everyone can swiftly move through the formals process and get onto the party…We will give you the proper tools to make sure that Aunt Sally has not run off to the ladies room at that precise moment holding up the party. What a relief.
Even with all the above accomplished, remember that fabulous weddings do not happen by having friends and family photograph your day. Having someone there on your wedding day that is totally focused on your photography is essential. At times, people think it is a great idea to have their friend or relative help and photograph this very important time. Typically the bride and groom forget that this person wants to have fun and enjoy the day with you and gets swept up in the excitement and miss the most important moments that a professional will not miss. This is most critical to the success of the day and to keeping your sanity intact. Relax, and let us handle the photography for you and tell your friends and family to enjoy drink, eat and celebrate with you.
Your Big Day IS Here – You are so excited to finally be here. Your makeup and hair is perfect, you have all of your closest people around you and you are ready to have a fabulous day. All you have to do is look beautiful and have fun. We will do the rest for you. Then you will have the most amazing images based on your pre-planned style choices which will be edited to the desired look that you would like to achieve. You will go on your long awaited honeymoon and return home to find that you are able to view a fantastic gallery of images online reminding you of the the most amazing day of your life.
