Engagement Shoot in Deep Ellum, Dallas

Angela & Matt asked me to be their Dallas engagement photographer and make their photos in Deep Ellum, Dallas, Texas.

Angela Conway, a high school friend of mine, has been dating Matt Fowler for a while now and wanted to get some Deep Ellum couple portraits done of them together. I was excited and honored that they asked me to take the photos for them. We decided Deep Ellum in Dallas would be an excellent location for some fun and natural portraits that were also playful.

Incorporating the famous Traveling Man sculpture was a bit challenging at first because of its massive height. Since its such an icon of Deep Ellum we had to include it in some of photos. The Traveling Man is such an awesome sculpture and trying to capture a photo of Angela and Matt along with it was fun. After trying out several different angles I was able to get this one that they thought turned out really well.

Here is the huge Deep Ellum wall that everyone loves to get photos with which incorporates many of Dallas’ icons within its letters. All the colors made for a very colorful and interesting panorama photo.

For these last couple photos I had them just play around on the sculpture like they were kids back in high school.

Matthew did an amazing job with our wedding. Our phones are wonderful these days and they are able to capture the small moments in our lives – but having a pro for something like a wedding is crucial. We were so thankful to be in the professional hands of Matthew on our big day. The shots that he captured were truly special – and he did so with such ease and calmness. We absolutely recommend his services for any occasion.

Matthew did a wonderful job capturing photos with my fiancĂ©! They are so natural and beautiful. He has a great way of making you feel comfortable during the shoot — which comes through on the camera. He really captured some sweet unstaged & authentic moments. He has an amazing eye for composition and light. We will treasure our proposal and engagement photos for years to come.
