denton wedding photography
I consider it absolutely wonderful when I am referred to a couple by one of their friends. Word of mouth, grass roots marketing is the golden ticket for any small business. Cola's relationship with Jessica and Efrain began simply because previous friends and neighbors of ours trusted us and our work, even though we had never done any photography for them. Our couple had a beautiful day to tie the knot, although what wedding isn't without it's delays? Imminent weather threatened to interrupt their matrimony held in the lavish gardens of the Little Chapel in the Woods, located on the glorious campus of Texas Woman's University. We waited patiently to know for certain we could proceed, and the extra time allotted us to capture some additional portraits. Jessica's subtle and natural beauty was magnificently captured within the garden setting before their ceremony began. Close family and friends were in attendance to help celebrate their joyous accord! We pray that God so richly blesses you in everything that you touch and do, stay united as one with Jesus as your Lord, and you'll always be full of His great love!

Allie is quite possibly as sweet, as young and as beautiful as a bride can be (that is except for my own bride)! She's a culinary artist, who not only dabbles in her home kitchen but is also studying how to craft and create the finest cuisine at one of Dallas' most renown institutions. Her and her soon-to-be Ryan, attended church together and grew up knowing that God had them set apart for each other when most of us were still earning merit badges and selling girl scout cookies. Her gorgeous smile and radiant glow were captured amongst the serene and beautiful landscape within the Arbor Hills Plano Nature Preserve. We had a lot of laughs with her and the other gorgeous ladies of her family that were in attendance to help Allie in any way needed. We took on the twilight sky ending our session with some flash photography that turned out exquisite. Allie, it is our prayer that God so richly bless you in everything that you touch and do, stay united as one with Jesus as your Lord, and you'll always be full of His great love!

Anna and Kameron are first responders who have their first love in each other. Anna is a nurse who loves to serve others and is dedicated to enriching other's lives with her medical expertise. Kameron is a fire fighter, a handsome charmer and a momma's boy. These two firmly believe in putting other's lives before their own and wouldn't have it any other way. Their engagement session started in old town Grapevine Texas, bursting with flavor and eclectic boutiques. We wondered around the rustic area on a leisurely walk and then visited the Grapevine Vintage Railroad to capture some fashion inspired portraits of this beautiful couple. Their fun and vitality showed during a daring and friendly arm wrestling match. Their session came to a close as we grabbed some sweet memories by the lake in Katie's Woods. Anna has been following our photography online for quite some time and her most generous, kind and amazing mother told us that Anna always mentioned to her, "Cola Photography is going to photograph MY wedding someday." Anna and Kameron, it is my prayer that God so richly bless you in everything that you touch and do, stay united as one with Jesus as your Lord, and you'll always be full of His great love!

Liz and Devin will be married forever! I met Liz at Zera Coffee in Denton while having a consultation meeting with another bride. She slipped over to me just as I was wrapping up and said that she'd love to have me as her wedding photographer. This has never happened before, sure, someone might ask for a business ecard, but not hire me without seeing any of our work. I was humbled to know that her stout decision was based on how much the client I was meeting with was so determined to hire us for her wedding, sehe was done looking at photographers and had come to her final decision. Liz said she loved how I communicated and responded to our client 's questions and concerns and that she wanted to be guided in the wedding day process as well. Liz and Devin are one of the youngest couples I have captured. Their love is genuine and original, knowing none other, they first dated each other and kept by each other's sides all through high school. Their smiles are infectious and I hope that you enjoy and see their love captured within these images. Liz and Devin, it is my prayer that God so richly bless you in everything that you touch and do, stay united as one with Jesus as your Lord, and you'll always be full of His great love!

These two little country lovebirds, although neither one from Texas, came to the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex to start their careers and journey through life together. Their love is sweet and genuine, kind and pure, forgiving and graceful. Natalie is a sassy and petite, she's a beautiful, rustic gal from the sooner state although she does not holler "boomer sooner", no she's a proud alumni of Oklahoma State University. Go Pokes! Sam attended the University of Maryland before transitioning to Texas where he met the love of his life. We started their engagement session at the Fort Worth Botanical Japanese Gardens, a unique 7.5 acre luscious and rich garden so full of foliage you feel as if you have slipped away to another land when you are there. We then wrapped up in the heart of Fort Worth Stockyards at the Stockyard Station where you'll find a historic and exciting blend of shops and restaurants set in the old and new western backdrop. May God so richly bless you in everything that you touch and do, stay united as one with Jesus as your Lord, and you'll always be full of His great love!
