Jason + Lauren | Dallas Wedding Photography

When I think of Lauren and Jason I think of: depth, authenticity, laughter, and power.  What is amazing about their love is that individually they both have passion to be a positive voice in our culture, and together the power they have to be leaders in our world is endless. (Not to mention their love is completely infectious!) Their wedding day was flawless. Surrounded by their family and community they celebrated what God has done in their lives, and their journey towards forever. Lauren was so full of peace and so grounded that day, and Jason is always a ball of energy and such a light. Their ceremony was intimate and tears and laughter brought their announcement of husband and wife. Todd Events created an effortless winter chic vibe, and to say there was an epic dance party is an understatement. Jason and Lauren you two are gems. You bring such light to our world, and we are so excited for your lives to unfold! XO, Kat + Linz

P.S.  Another really special part of shooting this wedding was the unique experience I got to shoot with one of my long time friends Lindsey Shea.  Lindsey is one of the most intentional + loyal people that I have met.  It was a unique situation because we got to team up together.  I'm so grateful to have gone through this experience with her!  Lindsey I love you friend!

Beverly Hills Engagements | Jason + Lauren

Jason and Lauren are two individuals that care deeply about the world around them.  Their lives are a continuos flow of generosity, intentionality, and adventure.  And together as a unit they are world changers.  Love inspires, love creates, love moves, love invites those around you to live in a more purposeful way, love has the potential to break down walls that seemed impenetrable, and love changes cultures and is changing the world.  And this is the kind of love that Lauren and Jason share.  The fact that these two souls are already living their lives in this way makes it that much more powerful to think of what will evolve through their journey together.

Jason and Lauren, God is using y'all in beautiful ways.  Lindsey + I cannot wait to photograph your wedding! We truly do believe the best is yet to come for the two of you!

XO,

Kat + Linds

Sneak | New York Fashion Week...

Lauren Scruggs + Shannon Yoachum of Lolo Mag

Emily and I have been in NYC for Fashion Week since last Thursday; it has been non stop and full of wonderful little surprises (one being the BLIZZARD that rolled in with conviction on Friday)  I cannot wait to write more, but for now here's a little sneak...

Our view from Billy Reid Fall 2013.  Every single piece of this collection I die over.

Our view from the second row at Monique Lhuillier Fall 2013.  Ladies get ready for Emerald; it's here to stay.

Em shooting backstage at Monique Lhuillier after the show.

My sweet friend Hilary of Dean Street Society connected me with Anna of In Honor of Design.  This lady is a gem.  We took pictures in the snow at Union Square and grabbed coffee at Joes.

I got to meet and shoot Miss Courtney Kerr.  She is such a lovely person, has some awesome sass, and she's from Texas...I knew we'd hit it off!

More to come folks...just wanted to give you a little sneak!

 

The LoLo Ladies

Sometimes you meet a person and within the first few moments of talking you just know that you're kindred spirits. This is how it was the first time I spoke with Lauren.  She is kind, genuine, loves people, (loves The Bachelorette...which is super important in my book), and is a woman who is really walking out her faith and dreams in such an honest and contagious way.

We didn't know what our friendship had in store, but we both felt confident that there was some major purpose in our paths crossing.  Over the past almost year she has been such a sweet and encouraging friend, and has challenged me to chase my dreams unashamedly.

A few months ago I reached out to Lauren asking if I could shoot their street style at New York Fashion Week.  To my excitement she said Y-E-S!!

Lauren and her childhood best friend Shannon run Dallas Based Lolo Magazine.  Fashion, Fitness, and food:  these girls cover their bases well:)

It wasn't until  we were running into the Rebecca Minkoff show that I met Shannon for the first time.  To sum it up:  she's blonde, gorgeous, has amazing style, and is really sweet.

In the midst of running from show to show, to a million appointments, and blogging--these ladies stayed classy the whole week.  Also, may I say how impressed I was that they rocked heels every day??

Ladies, I could be more thankful that y'all let me run around town shooting your outfits and runway shows.  My time in NYC would not have been the same with out you ladies in it!  Can't wait for more memories with y'all:)

Enjoy my final installment of my trip to NYC.  Thanks so much for being on the journey with me the past two weeks!  What were some of your favorite outfits or shows from the past few weeks?

Meet Miss Lauren Scruggs (on the left) and Miss Shannon Yoachum (on the right)...

Friends don't let friends have fly-aways.

I love how uniquely feminine and different Lauren and Shannon dress.

Ladies...it's all about the details.

Shannon blogged her outfits with all the details HERE.

New York Fashion Week Street Style | Part I

What surprised me about the trends I saw throughout Fashion Week was that there were so many different types of people, fashion, styles, trends. Sure, there were the ones that were glaringly standing out above the crowd:  leather, print pants, peplum shirts.

However, not one person was the same.  I love how fashion can truly be an extension of who you are, an art form of self expression.  There really are not that many rules.

The one rule that I've realized that I'm going to stick with is to just be me.  Be fully me, that is the most unique thing I will ever have to offer.

Lastly, I'm super excited to have photographed street style at New York Fashion Week for Lauren Scruggs and Shannon Yoachum and their publication LoLo Magazine.  Check out more of my street style pics on their site HERE.

Below is Ella Catliff of the London based fashion blog La Petite Anglaise.  To me this outfit was one of my favorite outfits all week because it was simple, feminine, classic, and elegant.  She isn't trying to hard, and/or trying to 'keep up'.  Ella is timeless in this outfit.

Another favorite:  I just love the simplicity of the white v-neck tee with a pencil skirt and tan belt to draw everything together.

This young lady is gorgeous.  But what I love about this seemless white ensemble is that when someone from the crowd yelled 'who are you wearing'.  She replied back 'It's ALL Zara'.  

See ladies...you don't have to be a millionaire to dress fashionable.  It's the pieces you pick, and how you wear them:)

Below is LA blogger and stylist Cheyenne from Cheyenne meets Chanel.  You know I'm a sucker for a white blazer.  I Love her Rebecca Minkoff camera box green purse!

Minutes after the Rebecca Minkoff show as I was headed to lunch with some sweet ladies (Miss Lauren Scruggs and Shannon Yoachum.  If you don't know them, puh-lease check out the rad magazine Lolo).  Shannon kept talking about this girl that was wearing a blazer from Rebecca's SS 2013 collection.  Well we turned the corner, and found Miss Jules from Sincerely Jules rockin' the blazer.  I want.  I need. I want. I need.

The last show of my day was the Tommy Hilfiger SS Collection.  Much to my dismay they would not let us (Lauren, Shan, and myself) into the show.  So I stayed and got some shots as everyone was leaving.

Dear Tommy, please let me in next time.

Thanks, Kat.

Below left is Justin Doss, fashion editor of GQ.  Sigh.  So darling.

I may have not made it to the show, but I did meet these sweet guys that walked for Tommy.

I mean really, who doesn't like a guy in a well tailored suit and hat?  And that grin?

And that ends day one of New York Fashion Week Street Style.  More to come:)
