Malevolence in Fort Worth, a beautiful day at Historic 512
I knew Mallory and Evan were meant for me, er meant to be at our first email exchange. I am a sucker for great humor and a terriffic laugh or two. Add in an adorable fur baby and a dad who is willing to run off with my shoes and we have a photographer-client love story.
Evan and Mallory flew in for their wedding in New York but we did get the opportunity to for a quick venue visit at Historic 512 in Downtown Fort Worth. That building means so much to me personally and as a photographer. (There is a second side to that building that helps serve women in our community in a very special way!) But my love of Evan and Mallory is more than just a pretty facade.
The upper floor of Historic 512 is the most wonderful auditorium. Those big gorgeous windows are situated for the most lovely natural light. We shut the lights off and just let the window light pour in. If you love old buildings like I do, oh! its just perfection. So many details to find.
One of the best details is this incredible elevator. There are a few other historic homes and buildings in Fort Worth with elevators in them but this one must surely be the king of the elevators.
After our venue visit we strolled around and took a few more. I grew up close enough to downtown to walk or hop on a bus and I spent so many days on these streets. I've been gone for 8 years and a lot has changed but some of my favorite nooks and crannies are still there.
I still miss Le'Madeline's and sitting in the courtyard just beside this photo, but these bricks are so special. Did you know it was the site of the last gun duel in downtown? Evan and Mallory did not bring their sidearms.
As a wedding photographer you meet a lot of wonderful couples. Every now and then you meet a couple like this. They are such magnanimous folks on their own, and together they do nothing but build up each other's character. They are both sharp witted and kindhearted. Look out for their wedding to hit the blog soon!
